Buca is one of our favorite restaurants but each time we go to this location, we get more disappointed. Sunday night 6:15 reservation and they were out of lasagna (was going to be an hour wait to cook another one.) Then they came back a few minutes later and were out of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay. Soda, ice tea were served after we all had one serving of salad. Had to ask for the bread. Waitress suggested baked rigatoni instead of the lasagna and it was a disappointment - was served warm not hot. We had Christmas dinner at Buca's for about 10 years in a row, a 50th birthday, and 80th birthday, a wedding rehearsal dinner and countless other dinners celebrations. Last night was just dinner for 3 and I left feeling very disappointed. Restaurant was fairly empty too so not sure why they had so many issues.

When we first checked in, we were seated at this table that was not a great set up for 10 people, but we asked if the could move us upstairs to a round table, the Pope table to be exact! Even though there was a banquet going on in the area, they happily moved us! The service was excellent! We will definitely be going back!

The quality at this place has gone down hill dramatically. The food is mediocre and the prices are OUTRAGEOUS. We had a party of 8, the room was freezing, and it took an hour to get our food! I will choose a different place next time for a large party. There are so many better options where you will spend the same amount and have way better food and service. Our specific server was very nice, but he couldn't make up for everything else that was so poor.

With the great coupon ($20 off of $40+), we made our reservation. I wanted to try something different so I ordered the Penne San Remo, tantalized by the white cream sauce description. Our wonderful waitress Anna was most knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. My wife order lasagne, which tasted and looked wonderful. BUT mine came with NO sauce; the kitchen just left it off. Disappointment.

Shortly after Anna delivered our entrees she stopped by to see how we liked the food - she immediately saw there was no sauce and said diplomatically, “Oh, it looks a bit dry. Let me get you some more sauce.” She saved my meal with a big bowl of hot white cream sauce. After tossing the penne in the sauce, my meal was most tasty.

Keep up the great coupons. And Anna, have a wonderful cruise, AND Thank You for saving my meal.

We were so excited about eating at Buca di Beppo, but that excitement turned into a great disappointment when ordering our meals. When we started ordering meals they were already out of items on the menu, additional how could you completely be out of salads which happen to be the two most selling items in this category at around 7 pm. After ordering not what we had intended to order due to this location poor ordering system, food served was not up to par for a good Italian restaurant and was left with a bill that did not reflect the food quality that was served. So, this place is off the list for dinning for us and my family.

Food is always good there, but i thought the pasta this time around was dry and there wasn't a whole lot of sauce. Overall the service was okay, but the server wasn't very good at keeping our water filled. Especially when its 100 degrees outside. Plus, we had to get our own plastic bag to carry our leftovers.

It was good. The 3 ppl or 5 ppl menu is hard to figure out for a group with many different tastes & desires. In the end we ordered just enough food... and I left slightly hungrier for more food... but that’s ok... I can stand to lose a few pounds anyway.. 🤣. Overall a fun experience and I would definitely return.

Our server Olivia was excellent; very friendly & always making sure we were happy & had everything we needed. Our garlic mashed potatoes as appetizers were not timely, so they came from kitchen to apologize & say we would not be charged. That was nice. They came out just before The meal. Overall, food was good. But we appreciate the great service!

Appetizer portion was really small, especially for something that is supposed to be shared. Service was kind of slow and not attentive, although server was really nice. They were really busy, we didn’t realize it was graduation weekend or something, so that’s probably why. The stuffed pasta shells were awesome, as was the apple Gorgonzola salad and Brussel sprouts.

Always delicious, and the $20 coupon made it a great deal. We ordered an appetizer and two different Smalls for four people. Totally yummy, with even some left for take home. Then we splurged ($$$) for the dessert sampler. Over the top!!!

The spaghetti lacked sauce so as a result, lacked flavor today. The server was great, but it took close to 45 minutes to get my lunch. I’ll still go to buca de Beppo but today was an off day.

Food was good and server was nice. Server was only doing what she’s told, but all of the upselling attempts - garlic bread, appetizers, desserts... it’s a lot...

But still a nice meal, and like I said, I know she’s just doing her job.

Ehhh... it’s just alright. Food / servicing style is odd. Some items are a good value while others are over priced. $3.89 for a soda?! Rip off. Brought my family here, 7 of us ate. $340.00 including tax and 30% tip. Too much for low quality food.

Table was too crowded, server was slow, food is mostly cheesy saucy pile of carbs and fat. Nothing stand out.

I think a higher quality restaurant will cost about the same.

We have had excellent experience in the past but several problems keep recurring; food served cold and not together. One plate was not served until we were leaving, but was taken off our bill. Seating was not acceptable for our party of 7, it was an extended booth, not a round table, and was not conducive to conversation. Waitress hustled but had too many tables or lacked staff support. This was true even while the restaurant was not full. Bathrooms were filthy.

The restaurant was very very busy and we were so glad we had reservations. The four of us were seated in a timely manner. Our waiter was courteous and efficient. I noticed that he was also helping with the very large party next to us. He still gave us wonderful service. The food was hot when it arrived and, of course, delicious. It was understandable that it was more difficult to have a conversation with the large party near us. We still appreciated the festive feel of the restaurant. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience.
