Good food. Good service.
I love the family style concept. Great food! Great service
So the food was decent... but the service was horrific. The drinks were never filled, the waitress brought us one loaf of bread for 6 people. We ordered garlic bread on top of that and that was brought out literally five minutes before our first entree. Our second entree was delivered to the wrong table and the manager apologized for the mistake, but the waitress didn’t even acknowledge that the mistake happened. It was fathers’s day, so I understand that I was going to busier than normal, but as a server, if you don’t want to be there, it shows. Put on a smile, pay attention, do what you say you are going to do. And if you can’t, this is not the profession for you. We will not be returning after this experience because the food wasn’t enough to counteract the bad service.
Everything was good , loved it ..
The portions are very large, so we shared a "small" pasta, and it was about 5 servings! The cypress salad had fresh tomatoes, mozzarella, and large basil leaves. Very fresh, with fast service and good basic coffee.
The food is good. My kids love the pasta but it gets very expensive quickly when everyone has different tastes. We had 2 adults with beverages, 2 teen boys and 2 9 years olds and it was almost $200.00. I should add the adults only had one alcoholic beverage each. It is family style so if your family all likes something different and you are not going to be sharing this is NOT the place for you. I wish they offered other options for portions.
Our server was distant- it wasn’t crazy busy yet he would just drop off our food n walk away no personality at all... otherwise everything was perfect...
I've been to Buca di Beppo many times, the food is average but there is a lot of it per order and my family loves it. I've never really had an issue with service. My main problem with this visit was they had a room packed with people that was right next to the kitchen and it was hot as all get out. Id be surprised if we were not breaking any code the way were squeezed together with other tables. That many people, that small a space, right next to the kitchen. They are gonna have to take a hit on AC and crank it up or end up with some dissapointed folks. I honestly don't feel confident in going back. The waitress said the kitchen was backed up probably 5 times during the service, which is also not great to hear.
I love this place for a large crowd. Portions are HUGE! The Spicy Chicken Rigatoni was delicious and not too spicy.
Food was good and waiters were attentive and friendly. However, I was highly disappointed that they refused to make my wife any of the cocktails a without alcohol because it was “against company policy” to make virgin drinks.
We went for Easter which we have done before. Great people at the front that seated us and exceptional waitress (can't remember names). The dressing on the salad was a little saturated but everything else was wonderful.
THE FOOD IS OVER PRICED IT HAD NO FLAVOR,RUNNING TOMATO SAUCE. I HAVE BEEN VISITING TO BATHROOM WAY TO OFTEN. NOT A PLACE FOR A HUMAN TO EAT, WE HAD VEAL PARM
The manager was incredibly rude! We asked to be moved from a table that had tiny fruit flies hovering. The manager walked by us at the new table we were sat at and glared and shook his head! He was also heard being VERY rude to his hostesses. If not for our very good waiter, my MIL bday would have been awful.
The food was mediocre at best. This is a good example of a chain restaurant that mass produces food. Good for kids and very large portions.
That place should close. Worst food and service
It’s all mass produced garbage in large quantities
If you like servers to call you love and babe and be super unprofessional all while forgetting half your order this is your place
Highly recommend you skip
Our server was awesome! Definitely will ask for her next time we come in!
Had a large crowd - messed up reservations were handled perfectly. Couldn't have asked for more responsive, caring service. And as always, the food was great.
Good meal and the service was great
As always, everything was wonderful. One will never be disappointed.
We love Buca. It was our 4th location (Houston, Minneapolis, Manhattan, & Mesa). Our favorite dishes Apple Gorgonzola Salad, Spicey Chicken Rigatoni, Chicken Marcelo, & Penne Bascillica
Food was just okay, nothing special. It was very noisy due to a very large party. Probably should have sat us someplace better. Decor is out dated & run down. Restaurant needs a good modern update.
Always a fun place to eat. Food is very good. Portions are for sharing. Great ambiance.
Needed a spot in the middle to meet some snow birds and loved that we were able to find this one. Love the family style servings and enjoyed a great time!
Food is pricey for what you get. Lots of young hostesses that don't care about their jobs and treat customers poorly.
We had a great time celebrating Christmas at Buca! The food was delicious, as always!
Family Christmas dinner
This was on Christmas Day and the restaurant was full. The service was great, the food came out quickly and everyone enjoyed their meal.
Always a pleasure to dine here. We were a table of 12 on Christmas Eve. We had a short wait, even though we had reservations, which is expected on a holiday. The hostess was courteous and apologetic yet seated us promptly. Servers were hopping because it was so busy but were right on top of everything.
This is the perfect place any sized group
Christmas Eve celebration and a birthday celebration. Extremely extremely busy!! Huge parties. Kitchen could not keep up. Server excellent but food came out in spurts. Love this place but extra help needed in kitchen to move things along.
Took the family for the Thanksgiving feast. Enjoyed the great service and generous portions.
We enjoyed our Thanksgiving dinner very much! Our waitress was especially wonderful. We were a party of seven including a three year old. The extra things we asked for were provided promptly and with a great deal of sweetness. Thanks so much for making our holiday meal a really good one!
Great family style place to eat good portion excellent service
The restaurant is one of my favorites due to the sentimental value it holds to me and my husband. As we have celebrated our anniversary.
Where else can you get a waitress who sings to you after dinner.
Easy place to make reservations for large groups and comfortable for bringing children. We will definitely be back. I wish they kept the floors and the bathrooms cleaner.
We are never disappointed.... food is always delicious and the staff is courteous and professional. We're already looking forward to our next visit.
We were sat in a place that was too warm. We started with appetizers and knew we couldn't go on with dinner in this section when it was 110 degrees outside and the air conditioner wasn't working in this particular section. We requested to be moved and was changed to a much cooler area in the resturant.Thank you for that!
We also were celebrating a birthday and thank you for the candle, but if you weren't offering a dessert to go with it, please let us know so we can order one. My grand daughters birthday with just a candle and no dessert..tacky.
Very good food, as always. Server was nice but we had to call her back several times to refill drinks. Restaurant was not busy at the time.
Good food, obnoxious decor
Perfect Mother's Day celebrated in The Pope Room!! Our yearly tradition!! Excellent service.. good food.. great atmosphere .
