Excellent. Came from Maine to visit family. We love this restaurant. So good.

Our server, Steve, was very attentive to our group of 11. We were celebrating my mom's birthday and he made sure she was taken care of from secret drink order, her own birthday candle stick and buca birthday song.

Another enjoyable evening meal. The salmon was great with take home the extra served. My wife ordered the chicken with Alfredo sauce instead of marinara and found it delicious.

When I come across a great service I like to give them recognition by name and Thomas certainly deserves that and more.

Everything was so good from appetizer to dessert. Our server Chelsea was very friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back.

Unfortunately our experience was less than good. Our experience unpacked as follows. The atmosphere and seating were compelling and enjoyable for our group of 10. The service was attentive and helpful, however they were a bit sloppy and inexperienced. One server was rotating the lazy Susan too quickly causing the freshly placed bottle of wine to slide off and knock a drink into one of our colleague's lap. This was after a similar 'near miss' with an appetizer platter. Okay, accidents happen? The serving sizes were huge and timely, which is good. However the food quality/flavor was marginal. The lasagna was over-cooked, chicken stuffed with broccoli was bland, and baked ziti lacked flavor. The chopped antipasto salad was very good. It was 'bulk, bland, caloric intake'. The desert sampler trays were huge. The chocolate cake, cheesecake, and Italian cream cake, were all excellent.

Pope room was great for a large party, one large round table with lazy Susan so food could be passed easily

Lasagna was mushy and barely any cheese. I think our family will pass on this restaurant.

Wonderful and fun atmosphere with family style menu! Lots of appetizer and entree options to choose from. No one leaves Buca di Beppo hungry that’s for certain.

They were late seating us, late taking our order and late cashing us out. Drinks, appetizers and entrees all arrived at the same time. Management was Unapologetic.

I made reservations to celebrate 2 birthdays in our party. Our waitress was slow and seemed a bit confused/ disorganized. I understand that night was busy. I have been to this restaurant several times in the past but this was th worst service I received there. They did not sing happy birthday. There other tables that were seat well after our party and was served food well before our party. We ordered our food pretty early due the fact we are familiar with the menu. We discussed our issues with the manager and he was completely useless. He acted as if he didn’t know what to say. So overall it was a terrible dinner.

Food was outstanding but the wait staff was very short which equated to a very long dinner. The server was good but was trying to cover way too many tables.

Total Disaster. We were seated with no silverware or napkins for 30+ minutes. Nothing went well and even though manager brought drinks and food late, he never apologized. Waited forever for everything. Will never go back.

We reserved a table for a party of 20 for a surprise birthday dinner and it was great overall. We were seated as promptly as possible and had a great area kind of secluded for our party to dine in together. The service was great and the food was excellent. I will definitely be going back for dinner, and appreciate that they accommodate large reservations.

We attended on Christmas day. It was packed. We utilized the online reservations two days prior. We did end up waiting about 45 minutes, but it was Christmas, we expected it. The waitress was exceptionally attentive, friendly, helpful, and prompt to take care of us; even though she was clearly busy. The food was truly awesome: chicken with artichokes, brussel sprouts, garlic mashed potatoes, and Italian Creme cake (lemon with raspberry topping--DELICIOUS!) was our food choices. We weren't disappointed, and enjoyed the leftovers the next day. Neither of us had been in years, but we won't make that mistake again. We'll be returning very soon. Even though the food was great, our waitress made the difference. She was very much compensated for being great. TIP YOUR SERVER WELL WHEN THEY DO GOOD WORK!!
