My work colleagues and I choose Buca for dinner this week and we’re very happy we did so. The food was fabulous! We started off with the antipasti salad and it was just the beginning of a great evening. I’d highly recommend the shrimp florentine and the brussel sprouts with prosciutto. And the cheesecake was to die for!! Jenni took fabulous care of us all evening, making sure we had everything we needed. She was very friendly and had a sparkling personality. If you have a chance to visit Buca di Beppo, I’d highly recommend it.

Party of six get together with friends. Service was very good, server friendly & very knowledgeable. Food plentiful but disappointed in flavors. Spaghetti sauce bland, eggplant Parmesan overbreaded & masked the eggplant flavor, salad had too much dressing. Chicken with prosciutto & artichokes was delicious.

It was my daughter’s birthday and they treated us well. The food was good, I think we chose a pasta that was too heavy given our other choices. That’s our fault.

Our server was wonderful.

Totally realize that they were busy but what restaurant runs out of salad??? Runs out of Pepsi? Then to top it off we had a disabled person with us, they had her ride the elevator to the second floor but then we were leaving the elevator was broken. It was pretty much a miracle that we were able to get her down the stairs.

Food is good however over the several years they have change in food quality And prices have tripled. Then serving you food will make you feel like you should have ordered an appetizer, as it can take 45 minutes. However even if you did it would take the same amount of time. They kept coming back apologizing 3 times about how long it was taking. I was served appetizers with our main course wishing I had the app firsthand. I also wanted a beer but it took them 20 minutes and 3 reminders, and I get “yes it’s still coming I’m sorry” each time. The noise well let’s say some waiters and bussers must be fantasizing they are in WWE because there’s noise every 2 minutes of someone banging things as if the Great Wall was falling; at the same time you see them cleaning up or slamming tables and chair around when their organizing the table size. Hot Damn! This was a thanksgiving dinner, had my family including my daughter. She ordered her meal however was served after us parents had ours, and how how long you ask? Hot Damn another 15 minutes. We feel bad eating before her, worrying if our food will go cold. Waiter had a courage to come up and apologize for waiting for hers. Where the decency in this? God Forbid, they have changed. It never used to be like this. Happy Thanksgiving in their terms!

Advance reservations for the turkey dinner...first informed, when seated...she thought they were out?? Told her to make sure...everything, including having to ask for forks, was a struggle...took 30 minutes to get a salad and then dinners came 5 minutes later...$21 for a salad we were unable to eat lest we let dinner get cold...told no mashed potatoes or gravy, they could substitute Mac and cheese..asked to speak to a manager regarding our issues. Additionally waitress said I could not take advantage of a $20 off coupon...another manager said that was not true and also brought out a bowl of mashed potatoes..then we asked for some gravy and where was the cranberry sauce...The first time going out to a restaurant on Thanksgiving and it was awful...

All my previous experiences with this place were great...this was a disaster!!!!

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.

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.
