 (New England)·Dined on December 25, 2014

We went to Buca di Beppo for Thanksgiving dinner because we only had a party of three this year and couldn't justify doing a lot of cooking for 3 people. The atmosphere was great and the service was a bit slow but the food (Thanksgiving Day feast) was great... and we didn't have to worry about doing everything ourselves. While eating, my sister said we should come back for Christmas, and low and behold, that's what we did! Service was much quicker (we think we had a new server at TG), very pleasant and enjoyable. We actually ended up ordering off the menu this time instead of getting the Christmas holiday feast (it was similar to the TG feast), so we got Italian food. It was VERY good. We were all really happy and each of us came home with leftovers. Thank you, Buca di Beppo, for allowing my family to enjoy the holidays together!

I frequent Buca diBeppo Shrewsbury when I'm in the area. It's best experienced with a group, or if you're a couple who likes to take home leftovers. The food is always tasty and filling, the pasta is always aldente. Be sure to order and share an antipasto, my favorite starter.

The interior is tacky and WAY over-decorated. Creepy, even. I couldn't stop staring. Hubby said it was "traditional".

They only serve veal, chicken, sausage, pasta, and copious amounts of cheese and tomato sauce. I was happy, but hubby wanted a steak and was disappointed.

Upsides: massive portions, great waitstaff, good wine prices, comfy seats, and a booth decorated with pictures of cats. Awesome service, especially considering it was christmas eve!

Enjoyed this place to the fullest. Warm inviting atmosphere with tacky Italian charm, perfect for down to earth family and friends. Mussels in galic and wine ,cheesy bread, chop salad, pizza and chicken stuffed with Italian ham and light pesto cream sauce was delish.

recently scheduled a party of thirteen for my daughters birthday dinner, had not been since they first opened. The prices had gone up and the food quality had gone down.The wait staff didn't seem to care that we were unhappy after having sent back one of our main dishes. They brought it back to us in one minute (clearly had just switched dishes and done nothing to the food). The chicken dishes had very little chicken in them and the sauce taste like Ragu, the pasta was beyond undercooked. All with an amazing large bill will never go again.

My family and I go to buca every couple of months for a big meal. We love this place. Aside from friendly and efficient service the "small" portions are quite large! So we share and take home what we could not finish. Everything is very tasty - not over the top complex. Our teenage boys love the food and despite their vast appetites we always leave happy with some extra food to savor.

This restaurant has a severe problem with staffing. Lots of dirty tables, a staff that doesn't seem to care and management staff that doesnt seem invested in the job. Waited an hour for a 7:10 reservation for 4. No eye contact from staff and they all seem to hate their job.

I would highly recommend going elsewhere

Made a reservation for 6 people requesting patio service for a colleague's send off. When we arrived we were told there was no reservation but we could be sat on the patio anyway. Clearly there was a reservation. First round of cocktails was well served. As more of our guests arrived (we ended up with >10 people) the server disappeared and was not attentive. We waited unacceptable times for service. As one of guests attempted to speak with a manager they were told there wasn't one present. When we finally received our appetizers which were good, we were never checked on to see how everything was or if we wanted anything else. Extremely disappointing service. The apps and the patio are not enough to keep us coming back again.

Father's Day is typically packed but not this time at 430PM. Same waitress as when we visited on Mother's Day just by chance. She recognized us as well. The food came quickly (~20 minutes) and it was perfectly prepared. The staff works very hard, fast, and focused. Still the best Italian food in the region. If you just go for the desert (portioned for 2) and coffee, it's worth the trip. The deserts alone rival the entrees.

The four of us had wanted to sit at the bar for a time to catch up on the "news" before dinner. The outside bar was not in service and the inside bar was right in the dining area. So we took a table instead. The waitress appeared new and unaware of what the bar had to offer. 2 ordered draft beer and 2 ordered wine. She came back - all out of draft beer tonight!!! Then the bottles of coors light had only 2 so when they wanted a second Coors, we got Bud. I ordered a white wine and my wife ordered red. She came back with 2 whites!! Food was OK but pricy for the amount of food.
The best part was our visit with our Florida friends. We all agreed our experience in Fort Meyers Buca was much better

We enjoyed all of the foods we had, except for the meatballs. We were extremely disappointed in them. About 3-4 years ago we held a function at the restaurant that was in Lexington, MA. One of the reasons we booked there was because my daughter loved their meatballs. Your meatballs were not like theirs. I had presumed that all of the restaurants in the chain used all of the same recipes. They are definitely bland and I am a pretty plain eater. They need something to spice them up and because they are pricey we were greatly disappointed in them. A member of our party had ordered 3 to take home and unfortunately forgot to tell the wait staff that we didn't want them any more so they were stuck paying for food they didn't like.

I have had events catered by Buca di Beppo in the past and was very impressed by their food and service but this particular visit left me less than impressed. I understand that this particular time they had a rather busy afternoon but when the service staff was forgetful, slow and inconsiderate my willingness to be sympathetic quickly dissipated. Our food was cold upon arrival. Two of our orders were never received as it took them an hour after we ordered the items to be told that they were out of them.

stuffed chicken.

Started giving us the wrong appetizer and I said I had ordered the Seafood Assortment. You were in the middle of having anyway, they came and took it away, giving us what we ordered. They tried to give us the wrong food also, but they found the mistake before was too late. I think that the dessert took too long. I like to have it with my Expresso.

Paying the bill was another story. They tried twice before they got it right. Even the Manager could not get it right. I don't know if that was because was a split bill. I don't know any names and really does not matter, but you can improve in this department.

I have been in your restaurants in Las Vegas and San Diego every year and I never had any problems.

Staff handled the Mothers Day heavy load very well. I've dined here 2-3 times a year for several years and I think this time the quality of the food was noticeably more intense (in a very good way). More meat where the dish called for meat. More sauce and cheese where that was appropriate. Yet all still balanced with the pasta amount. The amount is the same. as all the other years.

I took my mother to lunch where we could watch the other races out on the deck. Juan was our waiter...he was very nice...but the service was incredibly slow. I ordered a beer, they had to tap a new keg, after 20 minutes, I went to find him. Five minutes later, he brought my beer. I ordered my salad without cheese...he served it with cheese. Again, it took 20 minutes to get my salad...just a salad, no cooking involved, back. My mother didn't want to go ahead and eat, but it took so long, her food was getting cold. Juan blamed the bartenders and the kitchen...which I hate. He should have kept checking back with us to assure us he was ON IT. Also, it was not that busy though it was Mother's day when we were there. I won't go back.

It's a chain so I shouldn't be surprised, but the food was terrible. Excellent views of Lake Quinsigamontd! There is a beautiful deck and even inside you can watch a regatta from your table. Service was fine, ambiance was bizarre. It's unfortunate there is not a better restaurant in this stellar location.

Unfortunately, the roof started leaking....significantly...during our dinner. Have eaten here before and enjoyed the location on the water and they had music. This time the entertainment was the leak. While our waitress handled everything nicely...would have expected someone managerial to stop by the table. Can't imagine this is ok with health department to have this type of leak where food is served
food wasn't up to usual Buca standards either
