Buca di Beppo - Sacramento Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
it was a nice time..i celebrated my moms bday..the food was more than enough..but the noise level was extremely loud we sat right infront of roudy children who were ampted up from ice cream.! i didnt like that they said they didnt have my reservation although i set i weeks in advance and had proof of that..so the ended up seating me & my party right away l!😊
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!
We enjoy going to Buca di Beppo because of your tasty food. The entrees always come out
freshly made and nice and hot. The portions are generous and we enjoy having leftovers for
a night or two. Our server Toby, was very personable and very attentive. We will be returning!
Fantastic dinner once again. Bucca doesn't disappoint. The only downside to our meal was the pushiness of our waiter. He was very friendly and outgoing but kept trying to upsale us on EVERYTHING. It got kinda annoying when he questioned us multiple times on why we are not ordering a carafe of sangria instead of our two glasses. No matter what we said he kept pushing us to order more. Not a huge deal but really annoying
Food portions are way too large. I was on a date and we both ordered our own dish. We ate less than a quarter of what we were served. All entrees were $22+. This is not a place to go if you are not sharing a dish. It is good for groups of 6 or more. Only 2 dishes would be needed to feed 6 people. The restaurant needs some small plate options for smaller groups. Such a waste of food. The decor was tired; the whole restaurant needed a refresh. I would definitely not go back unless forced to for some sort of group event.
We had a great early dinner at Sacto Buca. We come here quite often because Jeff loves the Spaghetti and Meatballs. He also enjoys the rosemary potatoes and garlic bread. Randy and I love the stuffed Canneloni. Anna was our server and she does a great job; she is friendly, efficient, and fast, but takes time to visit with her customers. We had a great time and will return again. We get the coupons on-line and appreciate the savings. We also have had Amanda as a server and she is also terrific at her job!
Compared to other Buca Di Beppo restaurants this was poor. It was my wife's birthday so ordered the cake and expected the normal happy birthday song by the staff - sadly nothing. The cake was plonked down and the waiter disappeared. The service was so slow I could have cooked it myself.
For a Saturday night the place didn't seem busy so perhaps others had had the same experience.
Will be passing this place in future visits to Sacramento.
This is my restaurant of choice to annually have Mother's Day dinner with the family. I love the food, the service, the atmosphere/environment. This is probably the closest of being in Italy I'll ever get-- you kinda feel like you're there.
Always impressed .
