The one-day carbonara special was too good to pass up. So yummy. Good time, decent service, but don’t know why we had to wait 20+ minutes (we had a reservation) when the place was almost empty.

We'll certainly go back for their specials.

Absolutely loved our experience at the Sacramento Buca location. Our table was spacious, but cozy on the second floor. Our server had a great sense of humor and was down to earth. Food was delicious and there was plenty to take home and enjoy later. Would definitely recommend for larger groups (of which there were several) as well as smaller parties.

Even though we were a few minutes late it took a long time to get seated. Original reservation was for 9pm we got there around 910. Restaurant was pretty much empty since it was a Thursday and near closing time. Don’t understand why the hostess took forever. He said it would be a minute but took about 15 minutes to look around for a table even though like I said the restaurant was pretty much empty. Seated us in a booth with a table at the end even though we were a party of 9 with 2 very little ones. We were pretty cramped considering he sat us next to another bigger party. Server while nice took her time getting to us even though the party literally next to us she was serving was pretty much done and we were the only other party she was trending to. We already knew what we wanted to order since we order there quite often but she didn’t get to us until after awhile. I don’t like to give reviews especially bad ones but under the circumstances mentioned above there really was no excuse to have such bad service. We didn’t give any attitude or even gave a hint of displeasure because we were hungry and didn’t want to give any reason to add on to the lack of service we received from the moment we stepped inside. Regardless we still gave our server a nice tip.

Although the food was fair, guests receive good-sized portions of everything, including dessert. It's a good choice for family style meals, and Buca does give you your money's worth.

Had been several times before and always came away pleased with service and food quality. This visit was just average. Arrived early for our Open Table reservation but seated 30 minutes late. Quality not enough to complain about but less than we’d come to expect.

Excellent food; we could have been placed at a regular table rather than a booth with a table and two chairs (in the aisle) but there was no traffic in our area.

Everything is served family style so first they gave us our salad and forgot to bring us plates the entire time, gave us plain bread nothing with it, brought our food and we asked again for plates and drink refills, finally got plates, never got refills, I could go on... we ordered spaghetti with meatballs and it tasted like hunts from a can. We paid for a babysitter and went here on a date and even told them we were on a date, shortly after we were seated they seated a large party next to us with kids with loud iPads- more money wasted on a sitter, we could have done that with our kid. It was an expensive way to waste money on a awful experience, too bad because the restaurant is so cute and we loved the one in Roseville and Seattle.

We had the new Shrimp Scampi entree and it was excellent. Amber was our server and as usual, she gives us quick and excellent service . Amber is always so friendly, thorough and efficient. The greeter, Jamie, also is very friendly, and knows our party by name and sight. We had a great meal and eating experience.

Wait staff and food was fine but they put us between two extremely loud. We asked to move and the hostess said no because all the other tables were booked. Needless to say they weren’t. Those tables were empty then and still empty when we left. I won’t go back

We dine at Buca Di Peppo twice a month. This time it was a little disappointing. We ordered for the first time spaghetti with meatballs (small meal) and we thought the sauce was thin but tasted good. The server seem to be either new or naïve. He gave us bread plates or appetizer plates for our food and we had to ask another server for dinner plates. Other then that issue the server was ok. The food was ok but I do not think we would order this same meal. Our favorite is the chicken rigatoni.

We tried the new pasta dish with braised short ribs that were very tender and tasty. I had received a $20 gift in the mail for our meal from Buca so that was a plus. Our server Amber was very attentive and gives great service. She was always checking to see if we needed anything and refilled our beverages if needed. We had a great, relaxing meal.

We were a party of 8 and we were scrunched into a table the would comfortably seat 6. I know it was Xmas but I made the reservation a month in advance. As this is a yearly tradition for us I will make sure to orovide special instructions to make sure we have enough room. We were very uncomfortable.

Food was delicious. The Brusselsrouts were a new item; perfection. Waitress recommended large for everything but we had too much food so be careful with assessing your portion needs.

Thank goodness for OpenTable app. My husband and I went for an early dinner, arriving a bit after 1700. The hostess greeted us with a smile and asked if we had a reservation. I said no and was promptly informed it would be an hour and a half wait. Ummm. An hour and a half when the lobby is completely empty?! Okay. I quickly pulled out my phone and made a reservation (ALL time frames were available). The hostess seemed put off when I then informed her that I now had a reservation. We were seated within five minutes and enjoyed a terrific meal.

Went for a casual business lunch. Arrived by 11:45 and it took over an hour to get our meal. Staff was courteous and they comped our dessert but the slow food delivery was bad. They blamed it on a lot of catering due to pre-Christmas company events.

The food and service were food. But like every other time I've been to Buca, they seat you at a table that truly fits 2 less than your party. Always too crowded and uncomfortable. Also, too noisy. They shouldn't put three large groups in the same area. We don't go here often just for these reasons.

I always love going to this place for good comfort food. The servers are usually friendly and attentive. During this visit, however, the service was lacking. Once we received our food, we only saw our server once and never received any drink refills. In addition, we waited almost 30 minutes to get our check and once I gave the server my credit card to pay, she never came back. We asked to speak to a manager, but he was apparently talking to another table that was also complaining about the service. I eventually got my credit card back and we just ended up leaving cash to pay the bill.

We eat here a lot, but we forgot that this was end of season time for youth soccer parties. It was so loud in the downstairs room, next time will ask to be moved-we couldn't even hear ourselves think! Food was excellent, as usual, so that was a plus. Our server, Victor, was outstanding. He had so many tables, with so many parents and children, it was amazing that he took such good care of us. Victor was outstanding!
