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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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.
