Buca di Beppo - Worthington Ratings and Reviews
I indicated on my reservation that we were coming in to celebrate our anniversary and no one acknowledged that it was our anniversary. Why have the option to indicate special occasions if they aren't going to be acknowledged? It was also obvious they didn't look at our reservation notes by where they decided to seat us. Probably the only room in the place where people were sitting and next to a table with 3 misbehaving children! My husband and I made a reservation for the 2 of us to get away from our children...nit to have to sit and listen to 2 parents yell at their kids all night. The food was ok. But the veal parmesan should have been pounded out thinner. It was way too thick and chewy!
My husband and I love Buca--we've been to the Area District location many times for date night and family get-togethers. Unfortunately, upon visiting the Worthington location, we had a disappointing experience. I made a reservation for 7:15 in case it was busy (granted, I didn't schedule far in advance--maybe a 1/2 hour), and we arrived a few minutes before that. The lobby was completely full and some people had clearly been waiting for a really long time. The hostesses were arguing with each other (I heard mumblings of being short-staffed that night), and were not being polite with customers. We waited until about 7:45 to be seated. During that time we heard the hostess being very curt to customers simply requesting their place in line/approximate wait time to which the answer was "whenever tables open up." Our waitress was very friendly, but the experience was already tainted. We might give it another shot, but I think we'll be limiting our visits to the Arena District location.
We've been to Buca many times on or around a holiday and have always had excellent service despite a packed restaurant. We love that we can bring the entire family and pass several entrees around the table for all to enjoy. And the kids love that they are welcome to be themselves in a family-friendly environment. And did I forget to mention the food is FANTASTIC?!
Horrible management. Every server apologized to every table for the LONG wait times after ordering. Should have gotten up and left.
Horrible food. McD's is next door and serves better quality food.
If you do go just drink tap water- wine was awful, my mixed drink had alcohol in it...
We love Buca!!! Our servers were fantastic!!! Food... always delicious!!! Manager.... surprisingly unaccommodating! We had family in from AZ that had never experienced Buca... we asked to sit at the Kitchen table... the hostess asked him and he said that he had ToGo orders on the table and he would not accommodate us. We walked through the kitchen there were two ToGo bags and the table needed to be wiped off! This would have taken less than 1 min to accommodate us. (It was 5:15 pm on a Tuesday). The restaurant was empty. I have never had a negative experience here, but this was disappointing!!!
I made a reservation 1 week ago for a birthday celebration for my friend for a nice evening out with our husbands for 7:00. I made it through open table. So we arrive at 7 and stood in the lobby and waited to 15 minutes to be seated which we we ok with. So.....the hostess starts taking us back to our table but then the manager takes over and proceeds to tell us as we were walking that the kitchen is backed up and is running 1 hour behind. At first we thought he was kidding but he assured us that he wasn’t. He takes us to a back room that had to me at least 80 degrees. We sit down and told him he had to cool the room off or we couldn’t stay. He said they had been trying all night but couldn’t. So now we are sweating in a restaurant where we were going to wait over 1 hour to eat. We were all literally in shock!! I am 56 years old and dined all over Columbus as well as the world and have never experienced this. All he was willing to do was give us a free appetizer. We all looked at one another and said we have to get out of here. So..here’s where open table disappointed me. I get on my app and proceed to try to find another restaurant nearby and as I tried to make reservations the app kept telling me I had to call and cancel Bucca di peppa where we were. We called up front to cancel and they couldn’t even find us and we were sitting in their restaurant!! What a freakin joke!!!! I did it the old fashioned way and called a restaurant and we were able to get in and FINALLY enjoy dinner. Problem was my husband can’t eat dinner late because he has bad acid reflux so now it’s 8:30 so he couldn’t really eat much and we were all looking forward to a nice Italian dinner that night. So... that is my review of last night, December 16th, 2017
Prices have gotten out of control. Stuffing was slightly burned and missed the Apple Walnut Gorgonzola Salad that usually comes with the Great Thanksgiving feast. Not as good as we have come to expect from this location but not bad enough to keep us from coming back despite major price increase from last year.
Food is ok, nothing special, the lady at the front greeted us with mouthful of food and was chewing it, that was the worst we ever saw in a restaurant, I think the management need to give them a break to eat. We had better experience here before but I think the restaurant is failing
Our server was AMAZING. She had three large tables in a small, confined space, where she (quite thin) could hardly walk between the tables. She stayed happy, she was efficient, and somehow didn't spill a thing (an amazing feat with waving arms, a crazy loud nouse level). The food was good, but our server, Montana, made the experience great.
We returned to Bucca di Peppo for our anniversary...6 years ago, we had a small wedding with immediate family only and all of us had went to Bucca after the ceremony for dinner.
This time we e were sat in the bar area (they were pretty slow that night) We didn't order appetizers, just drinks and our entrees. The server was very knowledgeable and assisted us with our choices. My husband had the spaghetti and meatballs and I had the fettuccine alfredo w/chicken. My entree was pretty bland and the noodles were undercooked. I have definitely had better! I didn't send them back but I ate more of my husbands meal than he probably liked! The cheesecake was excellent.
We will return, maybe it was just an off night.
First time ever, the food was sub-par. Manager stated they did not reduce the sauce, took the dinner back to kitchen, brought it back in five minutes. Better yes, but not the same. Order zitti to go, bland as well. Read online comments, appears we are not the first to comment on the change in food quality
Not as good as used to be. We ordered two of the pasta specials that they have the the month. Only found a few pieces of sausages and short ribs in the pasts, nothing like what they showed on the ads.
The salad is ok, but you can tell it's came from a package, rather than freshly cut, not too impressive at all.
Disappointing service, difficult to get drink refills or anything else. Added to by a delay on bringing food for the youngest member of our group. Hard to explain to a 6 year old why he has to wait 10 minutes after the adults had their food. I really just assumed the $5 kids meal would be comped from our $200 bill for this issue. But it was not.
