Our expectations were low for a chain restaurant, but the food was great! We particularly loved the meatballs, the brussel sprouts/prosciutto side, and the pepper part of the sausage and peppers (which is a weird compliment, but seriously that sauce was amazing!)

Server was amazing!! We did however get a table in the middle of two large tables which I would have preferred differently and our meatballs came out not fully cooked. The manager was great and talked to us and gave us a free dessert. Overall it was nice just wish we could have sat somewhere else.

My server Betsy was the best in the world. This is normally a family restaurant and she was able to bring the portion down to the size of one. And the price fit that as well

Food not worth the money. Charging more than Maggianos for low quality Italian food. Fried cheese too greedy, and more breaking than cheese. Manicotti dry, and had to be recooked - only delivered after we were finished with our meal. Charged full price, manager did not appear to care. Timing overall not well Coordinated. This meal reminded me of why we had not been there in years.

Our server was inattentive. Other server had some blaming game with our server. Our server covered five tables in a small room section of the restaurant. No other server was seen after food was served (which took a long time). Pizza ordered came terribly oily. Very disappointing.

The food was excellent, however, the service was poor. Our main courses came with the salad. We did not receive all the entrées and our server was not aware nor was he around for us to inform him. We twice asked for the birthday song but it was never forthcoming.

Small family birthday celebration. Had reservations for 6:00 on a Saturday night. We had our drinks, salad, dinner and the staff sung happy birthday. We were out by 6:40. Normally we like to sit longer but had places to go. To get a great meal and be done in 30 minutes or so on a Saturday Night was awesome

I am not one to write review but we had such a great time I felt the need to support the location.. I took my fiancé to Buca di Bepo for his birthday this past Monday night - it was perfect! Excellent staff. They were prompt courteous and kind. The food was absolutely delicious! I will highly recommend the Shrimp Fra Diavolo!! Note to self, they are table size portions.. we weren't aware of it but it worked out. We ordered two "small" table side pastas and it was plenty of food to share for dinner that night and lunch and dinner leftovers the next day. Great experience, food and, staff! Cheers to Buca! We will be back!

This was the first time in over 10 years that i was not working at a restaurant or in retail on Christmas Day and i loved it! Courtney did a GREAT job! It was so nice to be served by someone who knew what they are doing, and could make suggestions to my sister and Brother-in-Law!

Thank you for making Christmas memorable for my family & I!!!

Buca has wonderful Italian food that can be served family-style. I especially enjoyed the Chicken Limone and my son loved the lasagna. Eating with your family or a group is great at Buca. It feels like eating great food with my extended family-lots of wine, conversation, and fun!

Pizza and salads were great . Server was very attentive, polite and very nice. I haven't been to this restaurant in a few years, I was surprised and disappointed to see it wasn't as busy as I expected, as it was at one time. I believe marketing, plus an updated interior may go a long way. Just like most restaurants and hotels, it doesn't take very long and they become "tired in appearance". Lots of competition in the industry. Would love to see a comeback !!!

My sister-in-law loves Bucca, and since there isn't one near where she lives, we come here every time she visits. Once again we were not disappointed. The prices are a little steep. . .but we always have leftovers for at least one meal and sometimes two meals, so that makes the average price more tolerable. Drinks are very high priced. The salad was super as was the lasagna and the veal parmesan. The tiramisu is the best I have had anywhere!

We went with my family for Mother's Day and had a great time. We made a reservation and there was no wait time. We had a lovely time with my family and the food was great. I would recommend this restaurant for a special event or every day dining. The food was great and we had more than enough to take home.

Wow. We had a wonderful time eating in the kitchen at the Chef's table! Our server, Hilary was awesome. She was attentive and prompt. Everything was served with a smile. Even though I ate too much to get a dessert for my birthday, Hilary still had the staff sing to me. It was so sweet of her! I think I was a little intimidated by the sheer size of the desserts after having that much food for dinner! They were HUGE! During our dinner, the head chef also sent over a complimentary plate of fried mozzarella. They were all very nice. My son is autistic and apicky eater and he ate up the spagetti! The food was great as usual. We ordered the appetizer trio, Quattro al Forno and Chicken Saltimboca. Delicious. I had the Vanderpump Pink Sangria....also delicious. Great experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat. I love the theming and the staff is fantastic.
