Dinner before the marathon is always pasta with family. Unfortunately, it is so loud we could not visit. The pasta was good, perfectly al dente. The chicken for the gluten-free guests was delicious. However, the Antipasti Salad was soggy. It was as if it had been premixed- laden with dressing- an hour before it was delivered. Service was excellent, though; Matt took great care of us.

Food was good. Service by Jamie was outstanding. Restaurant was very quiet for a Saturday evening. Not sure why. I like everything but the birthday song sung by wait staff. That was pretty cute when done at TFI Friday back in 1980 - not so much in 2019.

I had no idea Buca de Beppo was a chain restaurant when I made the reservation. Upon arrival, two members of our dinner party told me they had both previously eaten in different locations, so I was initially a little concerned that the food would be "average." I was pleasantly surprised! The food was delicious! The service was attentive and friendly. The family style food was well prepared. The pasta was hot and al dente. We enjoyed the family-style presentation.

Unusually poor service for a favorite restaurant. Our server did not get enough glasses or silverware, was slow on returning to the table, and forgot drinks orders/requests for additional bread. When I spend $500 for a dinner, I expect better service.

Made a reservation for 10 people about a week in advance for a special occasion. When we arrived we were put in a small crowded back room, next to two other parties. The restaurant was not full, and there was plenty of good tables, but we were given a half table/half booth on top of other customers. We were the only people in the restaurant and they shoved us all on top of each other. We couldn’t enjoy our conversation because of the set-up, and constantly had to be getting up out of our chairs in case anyone had t use the bathroom. It was loud and conversation had to almost yell to be heard over the noise to talk to anyone at the other end of the table. Disappointing set-up

We go several times a year, normally for dinner. The food is always great! The best eggplant parmesan.

We normally do in a middle table, at night, when it is darker and not as obvious about the lack of cleanliness. Honestly, gross! We had a booth and one of my son's toys fell on the floor and when I reached under to get it all I could think was what did I just touch?!?! It seems like they didn't move the table out, at the end of last night and everything gross just stayed.

Sadly, this got us paying more attention. The booth wall had definitely not been wiped down.

While the food is really good, I'm concerned about what the kitchen looks like now. Kind of wish we had never sat at booth to see this. We might go try the one downtown; same food, but hopefully cleaner.

CLASSIC American Italian Faire, served Family Style. For the uninitiated that means HUMOUNGOUS PLATES. My friend and I normally eat for Three People....and we were satisfied with a single plate of Spaghetti with the largest Meatballs you have ever seen. And good too!! That and a bottle of wine and we were satisfied. The atmosphere makes you feel your Italian Grandma is gonna pinch your cheeks and ask "Why you so skinny? Mangia!"

The service was great, the prices were not—even with a $20 coupon! A small salad is $22?? And way too much dressing.
Ok for pre-theatre dining.

Even with a reservation, we were initially seated right by the host stand, and the cold breeze coming in from outside. I realize, as a table for two, at a group destination like Buca, two tops are not abundant. But if I'm going to take the time to make a reservation three weeks in advance, then I would expect a better table. They found one for us right away when asked. Also, this was for my wife's birthday, and no mention was made of the occasion.

Food was good but ran out of bluemoon beer and limoncello liquor to make drinks requested. And this was on new years eve at 6 PM. Server was great but food took over an hour to get. We had kids so this was the back breaker.

Went to Buca downtown on Christmas Day. Good food and very nice server. The room was drafty by the window though, and the tables kind of uncomfortable since they fold the sides of the round tables down so you can't really sit under the table when it's used as a four-top. It's a fun place to get large groups together!

Great food and great value. we had a group of 10, made reservations and our table was ready upon arrival. The waitress was very attentive and we had a great time. We were surprised at how affordable dinner was, especially for how delicious everything tasted! We did have kids with us and the kids menu worked out great for them.
