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.

I was hoping for a peaceful meal after doing my Taxes instead I was put in an area where after my meal was served, a party of 25+ came into the room. I wish I was warned about this so we could have been seated elsewhere.

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.

Family style is a lot of food for two people and it's pricey for two people. No alcohol, one dish and an appetizer was $68, plus tip.

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.

It has been our family tradition to go every Christmas due to our work schedule. We had a lovely dinner. It is loud and very stimulating with stuff all over the place so this is not a quiet spot. Food was great, service was nice.

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.

Made reservations for 6pm and arrived 15 mins early. Little upset that we were seated 15mins after another couple who arrived at 6pm with the same reservations. Was told that they were over booked till 8pm and had to wait almost 40 mins after 6 to finally be seated. Didn’t seem very organized

Went for a last minute birthday celebration. Were able to get a 7:00 Saturday reservation at 4:00 Saturday afternoon. Our group of 8 waited about 20-25 minutes after our reservation time to be seated because we wanted to sit together, not in 2 adjoining booths. The food was good and the service was good if not a little slow. The atmosphere is always fun because of the photos and knick-knacks around the restaurant.

Failed! Thanksgiving day was HORRIBLE! We had a reservation for 3:45. We were seated at 4:35. We had drinks an bread for the next HOUR. Appetizers & entree were taking so long because the kitchen was doing To Go orders! Our waiter Victor was great and we realized it was not him who caused any of this. Poor management is the cause! This was supposed to be easier for the holiday. Nope it was more stressful sitting there. WE WILL NEVER DO THAT AGAIN!!

Unfortunately, this was not a good choice for a family of four on a Saturday evening - we had a reservation at 6:45 - weren’t seated until 7:15, even though we were told it would be just a few minutes to get our table ready. We didn’t see the waiter for another 15 minutes, and when we ordered, it seemed to go well. Unfortunately, our wine didn’t show up until after we said something and after the salad came - we were asked if we wanted a box for our salad, yet our entree wasn’t even there yet. We were seated near the kitchen, and my kids pizzas were sitting on the counter to be served for more than ten minutes. We didn’t receive our entree until 8:30, and hour after we had ordered. The wait staff was cordial, I just think they were overwhelmed, very understaffed for the amount of large parties going on, and the kitchen was not staffed enough for the amount of cooking needed. When we left (around 9pm), the hostess was telling a couple that the wait was 45 minutes and even then they might not receive there dinner for another hour or so due to a significant back up in the kitchen. We will not be going back to this location. 9 years ago, we had our rehearsal dinner there and it was fantastic. Sadly, this casual Saturday evening dinner made us decide that we will not return.

The restaurant was not busy yet we waited about an hour and a half for food. Though food is always good, service could've definitely been better so that we wouldn't feel like the food and our time was a waste... service is key!!

The dish we ordered was not prepared correctly, leaving out a couple of key ingredients. The server did not address the issue appropriately and treated us like difficult and picky customers. It took over an hour to get one pasta dish. However, the manager was very understanding.
