I usually avoid inexpensive chain restaurants, but after a long day at a relatives Poochutal and Seemantham I found my self hungry again a bit later at night.

This was a good dinner for Buca. The hostess was as nice as any we've ever experienced. The waiter was okay. We asked for water, and didn't get it until we had nearly finished our salad. The spaghetti and meat sauce was delicious. The wine is greatly overpriced. Look for coupons in your Entertainment Book!

We went for dinner with family members,in a somber mood after a death in the family. But the atmosphere was festive, the food delicious, and even the photos that were taken at the table, which we didn't think we wanted, turned out great.

If you are considering having this Buca location cater your next event, DON'T!!! My close friend had her bridal shower catered by a different Buca location and I thought I would have a similar pleasant experience for my birthday...MAJOR DISSAPOINTMENT! Food was cold and bland. Delivery time that was agreed on was a big miss, 45 minutes late. To make... More

I love the spicy chicken rigatoni. The small portion is for about 3 people and the large for 6. Great value in the food. I don't like when the photographer comes by to take pictures. The last time I was there they say you will get a free one but bring a whole bunch of others for purchase. No big... More

For years we would take the family and large groups. Always a great experience. Visited last week party of five. Gnocchis were over cooked. But in fairness to the restaurant, we should have sent them back. The wine was 15$ a glass, but I guess we didnt have to order any. Probably our biggest complaint of the evening was the... More

I've been to Buca's in a few other places and always enjoyed the experience. Granted, most of the time I went with many more people which I think enhances the experience. This time it was just a party of two. We started off with calamari which was decently fried and shared a main course of chicken, sun dried tomatoes, and... More

This is a very nice restaurant for those who want to have a slight celebration. All the food on the menu is a little expensive, but well worth the price. The servers were very friendly, and having said that we had never been to Buca di Beppo, took us on a tour of the kitchen. The decor may be a... More
