Enjoy the fun of dining at Buca di Beppo, always excellent food and plenty of it! Service and kitchen noise kind of gives you a feel you are in a busy Italian home with work going on. They did not have Ketel One Vodka, which seemed unusual, but our experience was a good one, a much needed night out.

Went to restaurant and no one was in lobby to seat guests. After waiting five minutes, searched restaurant for employee to let them know people were waiting. When we found the employee, was rudely told that someone would be up and that there was only one person seating people. Decided to leave and go somewhere else that appreciated business.

Went for my birthday. The restaurant wasn't busy at all but had made a specific reservation indicating it was a birthday. The service was very slow but we could see staff walking around the restaurant. The food didn't come out in the order it was supposed to which was odd because we were asked multiple times about when we wanted each item to arrive (otherwise I wouldn't have thought twice). The lasagna was burned. Again, odd because it was so slow in there. The waitress was very friendly and offering to replace it when the manager completely interrupted and started asking the same things we were just asked. The manager did not like me stating that the waitress was being helpful and got short with me. Irritated, we just wanted to get out.
It was overall very disappointing as we love Bucca Di Beppo for special occasions. They also didn't bother to check the reservation and celebrate the birthday.

Robinson Township Buca should be ashamed of themselves! We’ve dined there many times & have never had an experience like our Valentine’s Day reservation. We waited 2 hours & only had salad & bread. Entire restaurant was over booked! Everyone in our section had been there for 2+ hours with NO food in sight! Manager came out and said that our checks were next to be taken care of & good would be out~ 45 minutes later~ no food no manager. Absolutely ridiculous to overbook your restaurant. We couldn’t even get our check for salad & bread. Left cash on the table after 2 hours. Terrible experience ~ not sure we will ever be back!

I had a reservation, was sat 15 minutes late, and then it took nearly 2 hours for my date and I to finally get our food. Thankfully the conversation was good. Our server was fantastic. She was doing everything she possibly could to keep us satisfied. However, a man I believe to be the GM only came out to say something after all of the food had finally gotten to the table. He only apologized. Nothing was offered such as a discount and one wasn't applied to the bill. If I have to wait 2 hours to get my meal, you could at least offer a 10% discount or something. We had other things to do. Extremely dissatisfied with how that was handled. Also, maybe don't be so skimpy with cocktails. My Old Fashioned was all sugar. Maybe I'll try again on a normal day.

We have, in the past, been impressed by Buca. We decided to take an out of state friend there for dinner. Not only was the service crazy slow, but when we brought up the national website for Buca - the family feast- to be exact. Something like fed 4 for $40, the manager quickly dismissed it saying, “ it ended in Jan, just had not been taken off the website.” Umm? It was feb 8th, over a week. It should have been honored!! And out cannolis took 20mjn, which we were very disappointed to find had only been filled on the ends...the centers on ALL 3 were completely empty. I immediately requested those be taken off the bill- we were over this restaurant. We paid and promptly left. Won’t be back anytime soon.

Really want to give a special shout out to our server, Liz. Very professional, very friendly, always there when we needed her and discreet when we didn't. She noticed we were short some silverware and before we'd even realized it ourselves she had it to our table. Really positive experience - would definitely recommend.

Booked via OpenTable for 7pm on New Year's Eve, arrived 10 minutes early and was seated promptly. However, food did not arrive until 8:15pm so we had to eat rapidly to leave at 8:30pm for an 8:50pm movie. Mozzarella Garlic Bread is too expensive for what you get. Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken tasted good but with no sides makes it too expensive. Also had Shrimp Diavolo which was good but also pricey. Dessert came right before we had to leave so only able to eat part of it.

Server did not run through all the gift cards that we gave her for the transaction. Did not give us enough place settings, plates, etc. despite repeated asking. Drinks were wrong and she forgot to correct the mistake. Did not return to the table for some time. Was not a busy evening. Complained about the day prior and how busy they were and how they could not keep up in the kitchen and comped meals and she missed holiday with her kids - not our problem. Should not have affected our service.

We had a 6 o'clock reservation for dinner on Christmas we did not get seated until 645 and did not see a waitress until 715 and did not get our food until 830. I know Christmas is a difficult time but you would think with a reservation that we would be seated relatively promptly and get our food. Besides that the sausage was cold! And how hard is it to cook pasta.

When we first arrived (6 of us), we were seated in a room next to a table with about 16 people. They were so loud, that we asked to be moved (there were many empty rooms.) We then got seated at a booth and were very crowded, when there were many open tables. Rather than move again, we stayed in the booth. The waitress was good but would disappear for long periods of time. At the end of the meal, our guests had left, and my boyfriend and I stood with our coats on until someone could find our waitress. The food was good, but we probably will not go back for awhile.

We were celebrating a promotion and were seated between three tables of screaming children who were exceptionally loud. I do not expect there to be no noise but I specifically asked not to be seated around screaming children and that’s exactly where we were seated. I did not get a chance to ask to be moved as the “hostess” who was neither welcoming or friendly ran off. We normally choose this place for couple celebrations and I believe it’s time to find a new place.

Food used to be fantastic and now is just okay. Changing unique things like the tiramisu from the round bowl to cake slices and the garlic bread from the pizza pan with garlic on the bottom to squares in a basket is a huge let down. Salads never have enough dressing any more and chicken dishes lack the same flavor of old and seem dry. Wait staff always seems to be scarce in a pretty empty restaurant. It’s no wonder the place went from waiting for over an hour to be seated to step right in. All of this and it seems to cost much more than before.

As always the food was wonderful. We eat here a lot, and the service at this location is always hit or miss. Unfortunately today was a miss. Miserable, surly waitress, made us feel very rushed (there were a LOT of empty tables around us - they were not pushed for space!) she got my wife’s wine order wrong twice, and had the typical millennial “it can’t be my fault” attitude. The manager was wonderful and tried to make things better for us, but this is an honest review of this particular dining experience, not an indictment of the restaurant in general. We will be back; as I said, the food was wonderful, we’ll just try to avoid this particular server next time, that’s all.
