Service was slow and waiter took to long on drinks and he messed up twice on are drinks. He should of got right on getting are drinks. He seem to pre Occupied too many tables . Are food took a long time which is very unusual when we go there quite often. I had to ask him to go check on our meal. He was very nice but just took too long and that’s not the bucas I know.

Our first time at the restaurant and it was a very nice experience. We were greeted by the hostess and our wait staff. We received a brief welcome and info. by our server related to the restaurant's history. We enjoyed the food and the service. We hope to return for another family occasion in the near future.

What a joke! Well, we made reservations for 3 and anxiously awaited to have our first Thanksgiving Special at this place.

The wait...short and seated promptly although we did have reservations. Ordered the Thanksgiving Special for 2-3ppl. Waitress took our order and soon after, dinner was being delivered. It’s a shame that they restaurant didn’t make the effort to even place some sort of Thanksgiving decor out or a little something on the tables to recognize the holiday.

As for the food...I’m actually embarrassed for them at Buca di Beppo! Is their food service company really this bad? The turkey & dressing were plated together. It was so cold, we had to speak out. We’re usually pretty tolerant but because it was bad from the get-go, I couldn’t hold back. They took it back and re-plated more turkey and dressing that was hot this time...but so dry, the turkey almost looked rubber. The stuffing was much like chewing seasoned bread rolls, this was my last straw. The mashed potatoes, just okay...green beans, just okay.

We asked for a to-go box without even caring about the pumpkin pie that also came with the meal. The waitress insisted on packaging the food, I reluctantly agreed. Sure as hell, it took for-ever to get the packed food back! Of course, my credit card was balanced on the edge of the table as a sign of how fast I needed to be gone from this place.

We arrived home and found the pumpkin pie thrown in a tin for transport. One of three slices were crushed by the other two. At first look, it didn’t even look like a pumpkin pie but I tried a bite. Horrible! The texture of the pumpkin filling was that of air filled jello! I threw it away immediately.

Not a good showing tonight Buca. I will not be returning.

I would suggest you stick to Italian and scrap the Turkey.

High priced mediocre food. Most entrees and desserts appear to be heated from frozen. We'd have been better off going to Olive Garden.

We had not been to Buca de Beppo in a few years and thought we would try it since we were close by. Apparently the menu has changed and now it's family style dining. Although that's fine for a family if they all want to eat the same things, it was too restrictive for just a couple. The selections are very limited. If you wanted to order the entrees, no pasta came with them! so I suppose you got the meat dish and that's it! They did accommodate our requests for the build your own pasta ingredients, which we really appreciated! We really didn't need to pay $8 for a basket of garlic bread! Would have enjoyed a small side salad, but that wasn't available. We like to have more individual choices.
