    Just what we were looking for. Fun, casual , great food. Perfect for our group of 15 with various ages and budgets. Everyone felt comfortable. Our waitress set just the right tone. Friendly yet professional. She was on point and never flustered with our large group. She was awesome!

    Always fun to sit at the Popes table snd service is always good, but the food is just so so. The cheesy bread tasted funny. We all were starving and dove head first into chowing on the cheesy bread then immediately we all looked at each other and were like “ eeewww!” The bread was uneditable. Chicken parm wasn’t great either and for three ladies with to main dishes and a side with a bottle of wine it was almost $200 including tip. Once a favorite, not so much anymore. Wouldn’t recommend in the future.

    The food is always excellent! Our server tonight was a bit distracted. The appetizer came out with the dinner (instead of before), the server did not bring us part of our order (had to ask another server to get the missing item), and he rarely checked on our drinks for refills, but normally, the service is excellent.

    Buca used to have very good food. Something has changed over the past few years and the food is mediocre at best. The ambiance is still about the same and the service was fantastic. Good just wasn’t that great and the cost for the lower quality doesn’t add up. Unfortunately, unlikely to return.

    The food was good, but timing of when food was brought out was not great. We had ordered a couple dishes and garlic bread. One dish was brought out right away with the sauce for the second dish. It took another 2 minutes before the second dish and garlic bread arrived. Also, cleanliness is now an issue at this location and I will not be going back. We were in a booth and I happened to see under the table as we were leaving and there was probably a dozen crayons and lots of food crumbs.

    Last night's experience wasn't the greatest. Half our meals were completely forgotten and didn't come out until several of us had already finished eating. We had to ask where our food was and the waiter said the kitchen forgot to make it. I had to ask to be compensated and even then the waiter hesitated to ask the manager. We did end up getting half of each order taken off the bill, but I feel like we should have never been in the position to ask for a discount. It was a little embarrassing. I don't like being "that" person. The one thing I will say is that when the food did come out, it was very good. We are grateful that we were able to get reservations also. I am aware that bad nights happen, but when the mistake was clearly the fault of the establishment, guests shouldn't have to feel bad for asking for a reimbursement. The experience wasn't up to par, but we will likely be back again!

    Pros: quick and service was pretty good. Cons: Food, the cheese bread was probably best at 3/10, we also got chix parm, alfredo, calamari, caesar salad. For food that seemed to be frozen and microwaved we spent over 200 (no alcohol), 2 adults and 3 kids. It had been about 10 years since the last time. Will not be going back

    Let me start by saying our server Elizabeth was the only positive thing about our experience. Let me continue by saying I never plan on eating at Buca di Beppo again. The pasta was undercooked, the Chicken Parmesan was undercooked. The food had absolutely no flavor. The drinks weren’t made correctly or poured correctly either. The Mozzarella Bread was more garlic powder than cheese or bread. Clearly there isn’t a kitchen manager or expo that checks the food quality before serving food. I’m very concerned that the product being used at this location isn’t being stored or prepped properly. Here’s the determining factor for me, 2 people & a $160+ tab. I was overwhelmingly disappointed with my experience. I feel even worse for my friends who had a similar bill. We should have gone to a fine dining restaurant. Keep Elizabeth, she’s your only hope…
