You've got to be kidding

We went in for a quick lunch today thinking we could grab a quick salad and head back to work. It took 40 minutes from when we ordered to when the meal was served and that was with two requests for updates on our meal. On top of this the soup bowl was chipped and the cheese on the mozzarella... read more

food is very good; especially the ravioli lunch item, which is a bargain price; bread is also very good and you can use coupons to bring down the price

Tried 'Buca' for last minute dinner option and really liked our decision. They had added smaller entree options not too many years ago and we opted for small sized combination stuffed pasta dish, a marsala type chicken dish and mixed salad. All three selections were well prepared and 'delish'. Even though it's a franchise type chain, we find this particular... More

The waiters were fantastic (among the best I ever had). The food tasted very good but the kitchen was very slow. My group felt the food was worth the wait.

We took our grandchildren to B d B last weekend. Many other families were celebrating various events - including a birthday at the next table. Portions were huge and food was tasty - all served family style. The canneloni was particularly good and other dishes passing by looked scrumptious. With no alcohol, the tab was under $80 for 5 persons... More

The best meatballs i've ever had - not to mention they are half a pound per meatball. They have family style servings so unless you havent eaten for days, dont go here alone. Ive had their Apple Gorgonzola salad, calamari, and shrimp florentine and it was all amazing too. I'd go for meatballs all day though. BUT they make it... More

We were a party of 8 including 4 children ranging in age from 5-12. The bill came to over $200 with the tip. The food was plentiful, the chicken marsala was perfect, and the lasagna was also very good. The calamari was over cooked and tasteless and the chicken with prosciutto was also dry and tasteless. The service was excellent,... More

The Buca in our area closed a few years ago, so when we travel we like to visit the local Buca. Our last visit to a Buca was disappointing, and we were hoping that this visit was better- and it was! Our server, Courtney, was fantastic. She was personable and friendly, but she didn't spend too much time hovering (great).... More

I ordered the Shrimp Fra Diavolo and Macaroni Rosa. The dishes were made to order and the protion size of each dish was more than enough for two adults. Buca di Beppo is family friendly, but dining out can become costly very quickly.

The service is fantastic. The GM (Farhad?) is just great. The food is ways good and fresh. It is very obvious that staff are following the GM's expectation. The place is good and upbeat.
