Appetizer came after we started with the food we forgot about it. Food was more of room temp. The waiter was in a hurry and was not knowledge of menu items . The garlic cheese bread was cheesless. The salad was the only good item we got out of all 5 items we ordered. Not planning another visit. The bill was almost $100 and it was not worth it

Bar Service was poor but mainly because there was one bartender not only working the bar but also all of the tables in the bar (extremely poor scheduling).

Table side Ryan did a great job and was attentive

It's always a great time when we go. But this time at 9p on a snowy week night was not the greatest. Hardly a server or greeter. Tha one waiter finally showed up and made it work. He was stressed but served wit h respect and a smile. Food was tasty. Drinks were too. I'll be back

Thus was the worst service we have ever had here. 3 hours for full meals to be served and then the quality was off too.
There were six of us-each me came out separately. Two hours from first meal to Kary being brought out.
Had to beg for a bread basket....
Same for water refills
They were very busy but everything was off.

Good food, very busy, they had too many reservations at once as we waited 35 minutes for a table along with at least 50 other people. Hostess was very short and not overly friendly. She was truly over whelmed

I haven't been to Buca's for awhile... I remember it being a lot better in terms of the taste of food. We had ravioli, meatball, caprese salad which were 'fine' - not great. The flavor was lacking to me and my husband. Disappointed in the food; flavor, timing. Our food took a long time. The boys pizza was good.

We were there for Christmas Eve and our daughter's birthday which is Christmas Day. It was a lot of fun and the food was better than expected. We ate until we were full and still brought home a lot of food! It was a very festive time. It might become a tradition!

We had reservations for Christmas Eve at Buca. The restaurant was not busy and the service was extremely poor and slow. We have been there on other occasions without issue. However, very disappointment in our experience on Christmas Eve.

Food was okay. Large group with kids.

Booked table for 8pm. Got seated by 820- we arrived early too.

Servers took long to order and then food took even longer. Over an hour from ordering at 845 at night. Servers apologetic for service for their standard pasta dishes. Restaurant was mostly empty by the time we got served and servers putting up chairs and cleaning table.

Not great for family dinner that they weren’t able to cope with.

This is a great restaurant for a group or a family that’s coming in after going to the theater or special event. The family style work very well with us and the service was very attentive although they were very busy that Saturday early evening we had a very good waiter who accommodated us very well. Would really recommend the mushroom risotto a side dish excellent

Table felt crowded for our group size. Salad and pasta carbonara were very good. Meatballs are very large, which makes them tough.

Waiter was aloof and indifferent rolling his eyes at our group. Clearly not interested in serving our party. Argued with us on wine selection, would just leave our table before we could order appetizers or ask questions. Our food entrees arrived at different times with at least 5 minutes between pasta and meat dishes. Not acceptable! Very poor reflection on your brand and will be a while before we return.

Very busy night but we were seated within 10 min of our reservation time. The service was prompt and friendly- food didn’t take too long, however, a couple of the items seemed skimpy compared to what we had experienced before. The bathroom is wicked tight- other than that the decor is cute. Good music too although it was a bit hard to hear as the place was packed (and thus- loud).

Service in bar area at a high top for drinks and appetizers was terrible. Waited and waited with no bartender acknowledgement for more than 10 min while 2 bartenders were seen drinking themselves, having a great time with each other, hanging out with a few guests at the bar. When my husband finally got up from table and walked up to bar to order, neither bartender apologized and acted like complete jerks. Never cleared table when we finished appetizer and had a table full of dishes, were way more interested in unprofessional behavior behind the bar. Others in bar area equally ignored. Boys need to learn service an a little hustle.
Once we were seated in the dining room the staff was amazing, very fast and professional and attentive.

We have been to Buca di Beppo several times but this was the first time we were disappointed with our service. We waited over 45 minutes for our food and only right before the manager came out did the waitress say anything to us about our wait. She said it should be out soon and that was it. Then the manager came and brought our food and apologized for the wait. He also took one of our entrees off the bill. It was very nice of the manager to take care of us and we will definitely be back but, it would have been nice if the waitress was a little more friendly and attentive.
