New to restaurant. Usually love it but pasta was undercooked this last time. Didn't say anything because we had hungry children with us. Was disappointed but still like the place.
Love bucca. It's great for a group of people because you can try different dishes. The apple salad is the best salad I have had. The service was great and when they waitress was busy the manager step in and got us our drinks. They were on top of everything. Can not wait to go again!!!!
I never go to a restaurant looking for authentic italian food (Rome changed my perspective on pizza and pasta!) but I enjoy american italian food just as much. BdB has a really nice restaurant layout that can help your group or special someone feel a little more cozy with you. Celebrating new years with a couple of close friends was a solid idea.
Our waitress had just been in a car accident where her airbags deployed, so she had two black eyes but the service was very good.
We wanted to dine together as a family on New Year's Eve without worrying about price hikes and crowds. Buca was perfect. The food was fabulous as always and our server made us feel extra special. Thank you for a job well done!
My husband and I went to Buca di Beppo for Christmas dinner. The food was good, the service was good, the atmosphere was odd for Christmas, but fine for any other occasion. However, every person on the waitstaff was complaining about something; the fact that they were working on Christmas, the kitchen staff was slow, the kitchen staff was messing food up, how long the servers had been working, a hostess complaining that another hostess had no idea what she was doing, complaining directly to customers that they were really slammed.
The hostess who sat us was instructed to walk us really slow to our table, which she proceeded to do. This was absurd. Just wait five minutes until the table is cleared. We had a reservation, but we weren't complaining about being seated, and had only been waiting five minutes.
Aside from the complaining and weird super slow walking, the food was decent and I'd be happy to come back on a day other than Christmas.
This was the worst meal I think I've ever had at any restaurant. The service was bad. We had to flag someone down and ask who had our table after sitting for 15 minutes.
The meal was THE WORST! Salad was soggy. And veal was very tough and no taste. Waste of my hard earned cash. And we will not be going back.
I've already told my family how bad our experience was and will be sharing with friends as well.
Food was outstanding and portions large. We had a family Christmas dinner and we enjoyed our table and seating area. Very private feeling. Did not feel rushed.
Always enjoy the food and staff is always friendly.
We had a wonderful time celebrating my birthday. PS. The small plates really do feed two.
We were back in Maryland after moving away and wanted a place to meet with a bunch of friends. We had 24 people in our party and the service at Buca's couldn't have been better - including accommodating an additional 4 people at the last minute. They gave us a room to ourselves - which was great since we were pretty loud and it was nice to not have to worry about disturbing anyone else's dinner. The two waitresses (Gabby & ?sorry?) - couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. The food was very good and plentiful. The manager came around a couple of times to make sure we didn't need anything. We all had a great time thanks to Buca's and their staff. Thank you.
Our only request as "regulars" is that they bring back the steak pizzaiola and steak gorgonzola - they were two of our favorites! Oh! And we need you to bring Buca's to New England now!
Energetic and fun atmosphere. Service has always been fantastic and the food is always good. A great place to go for special occassions, group outings and even a casual romantic event. A definite must for anyone who loves Italian food...but bring your appetite.
We went to Buccaneers do Beppo for thanksgiving. Had recently had surgery and was not able to travel for Thanksgiving so my family came to me this year. We had a reservation for 15 and were seated right away. The traditional Thanksgiving meal complemented with several pasta side dishes hit the spot. They followed it up with a pumpkin pie. Will definitely go back to the White Marsh location.
Been here many times, its predictable with good food (huge portions) and very friendly staff. Its a bit expensive though, i dropped a bundle on 4 adults and 2 children with only a 3 beers among the adults. Have been to several restaurants around the country at various times in the last 20 years and we've always had the same good time.
Our waitress (Mimi) was outstanding, and I was particularly impressed that the manager came around and welcomed us there and was there to thank us for our visit when we were leaving, nice touch.
This is the place for moderately priced Italian. This is the go to place for me and has displaced Carrabba's.
Overall wonderful dining experience!! The dinner was amazing, dessert was crazy, and the decor is so interesting!! Cannot wait to go back!!
I love that you can count on the food and the service every time you visit! We have never been disappointed!
Eating at the kitchen table makes it a fun time for this foodie.
We had a special birthday celebration and everything went wonderfully. We were given a private room which was excellent for the children we had with us. The food was exceptional and we ordered the perfect amount.
Reminded me of my Italian heritage and great grandmother. ❤
Great for large groups 8+. Family size portions allow you to get three or four dishes to share with everyone. The Apple Gorgonzola salad rocks. Great wine selection but not necessarily overwhelming. Ambiance is something else!
Great food at fantastic prices. Always take a large group of people. Portions always leaving you with something to take home.
Just celebrated my mother's 70th birthday and loved it. The food was delicious, the service wonderful and the company perfect!
We really appreciated the service we received after a very busy day. They really went out of their way to accommodate our frequent changes of arrival times and took very good care of us when we did arrive. We liked the family style servings and the attention to our needs. The chicken parm was enjoyed by all.
This was our second visit to this Bucca and we have been to other locations. Our last visit here was not good for food or service. Following this experience we will place Bucca back to the top of our list. We were there on a Sunday evening and not very croweded. The hostess noted my daughter had an iphone and offered her to use her personal charger during the visit when she overheard that it needed a charge? WOW!!! Our server was awesome and very attentive as well as helpful regarding the size of the portions given our party of 6. The food was fabulous and provided me with more reasons not to go to Little Italy in Baltimore City. Overall this was a FABULOUS experience. I will recommend Bucca to all and will have my work party there!
Loved our server jamilah! Everything was fantastic. She was more than willing to accommodate our group by moving tables for us.
Our family meets once per month to connect with each other. Buca's is a great place to gather together with the having to worrying about cooking or dinner clean up. The good was good and our waitress was very attentive. Definitely recommend for a large group or a small one if you like a lot of food.
My family and I had a great time on September 13th. Very spacious back room for my family of 16, great food, and the staff was super friendly. My family and I are planning our next get together and it will be at Buca di Beppo
The restaurant has so many little nooks and rooms, it's great for families or large groups because if the restaurant isn't packed, you can almost fill a whole room with a group of 12 or more, and have a private dining area. The family style is nice too because you can try a few different things for the whole table. The salads are great.
Husband and I went here for our four year anniversary. We had Jimmy, who was also the bartender, as our waiter. He was terrific, and even gave us a tour of the restaurant. This place had very nice decor and soothing music. Will definitely go back, perhaps with a group next time. Food was great!
We ordered 2 large apps and 2 large entrees. There was 7 people and we still had boxes to take home. Great portions and good food.
As always, we were very satisfied with the food served. I was disappointed in our seating. The restaurant was not crowded and we were put in the smallest room in the restaurant that was packed. There was a table of 4 people that were very loud and very rude (yelling, belching, etc.) My husband and I actually turned around and looked at the woman when she belched...very rude and disgusting.
The second visit to this restaurant confirmed our first impression; the food is good and plentiful, the service is good to better than good, the prices are just fine given the portion size ( the small size feeds two ). This is not a "fine" Italian food restaurant - we go elsewhere for that - but it does fit into our dining plans (guess this means no more Olive Garden) from time to time. The layout of the space would allow for group dining in a "private" setting. Sharing multiple entrees is the norm at any table, the more at the table, the greater the choices to each.
Four of our friends joined us for dinner. We met in the bar for drinks and the bartender was great. He even remembered that we had been there one time before. When we were shown our table, we were in one of the small side rooms that contained 2 other tables. It was nice quiet and we could talk to each other without having to scream across the table. Our waitress, Ciara, was great. She took care of our requests quickly. The food was extremely good and the portions are huge. Even though there were six of us, we ordered 3 appetizers and 3 entrees to share - all of us took food home with us. We will defiinitely go again as it is a very relaxing and enjoyable restaurant.
We had a mix of returning and new diners, and everyone had a great time. We loved dining in the Pope Room but also enjoyed walking around and looking at the decor throughout the restaurant. The food was delicious, and the service was friendly and attentive. The family-style dishes being passed around the table made you feel like you were at home. Can't wait to come back!
My family always enjoys eating at Buca! Our favorites are the fettuccine alfredo, chicken parmesan and the baked rigatoni. But everything is delicious!
Always a great meal. We always take our children and grandchildren, it is wonderful for larger parties.
Excellent service by Kevin. Food was awesome will bring the family next time. Need to for the amount of food u get. Definitely will return and love the many many pictures. Great place!!!!!!
Birthday dinner. Food was tasty and hot. Drinks were strong and still tasty. Interesting cocktails on the menu. I like when restaurants come up with something different to try. They sat us alone so the sleeping baby wouldn't wake up. That was very much appreciated.
This was our first experience at Buca di Beppo. We had a party of 11 and made reservations online. Once everyone arrived, we were directed to our table which was all set up for us. Our server, Gary, was very attentive and went over how "family style" works. The food was delicious and with Gary's guidance, we ordered the right portion sizes to feed our large group. We ordered several appetizers, 2 different salads, several main dishes and a dessert for all of us to share. The manager even came out to check on us to make sure all our needs had been met. It was a wonderful and memorable evening, and our group agreed that we will definitely be coming back.
Just had a large family gathering for dinner at Bucca di Beppo in White Marsh. Everything was delicious and the wait staff was amazing. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
The family style worked great for our group. We all got to try a little bit of everything. :)
We've been several times and they continue to amaze us. The food is always wonderful and the staff is on par. We love the dishes and the atmosphere. Will go again and again!
