Bob our server was the only thing we enjoyed ---so sorry!

I had a taste for pasta yesterday & because we had such a great meal at The Buca in Livonia, we thought we'd try Utica---sorry we did. I don't get why the food is so different between the two restaurants. We had a antipasto salad that wasn't even close. Then we had a minestrone soup that was so... read more

What a terrible experience! I had never been to Buca di Beppo before but decided to try it because we got a gift card from a friend. The place is very adorably decorated with many cool "Italian Style" fixtures, posters wine bottles, etc. However... The food, is awful. We ordered a salad which consisted of mostly iceberg lettuce (kind of... More

Yes, I know that it's a chain. But it's chain food at it's best. Wonderful Sicilian style Italian food served up family style. Do yourself a favor and reserve the kitchen table. Then prepare to be stuffed and tempted to the extreme. Too bad that they took the Caciatorre off the menu.

Although the Lasagna tastes "excellent", it was barely warm when it came out. Furthermore, the Ravioli was an utter insult. Who pays $16.99 for a half dozen ravioli ? I did. The idiot. Never again. And when I was tired of waiting for our waitress to bring my beer, I finally went to the bar (when I seen the bartender... More

The food was ok, but you get portions for more than one person. It makes for a very expensive meal if you go with someone that doesn't want to eat the same thing. Yes, you have left overs, but if it's not that special to begin with, reheating it doesn't improve it.

We went on a Saturday night about 7pm. We were told it was going to be over a 30 minute wait and decided to leave. Then the hostess said to wait a minute some people were leaving and it shouldn't be long. We were probably seated in less than 10 minutes. The server took us to our table via the... More

Went here to celebrate a special occasion and there were 7 of us. Made a reservation, arrived 10 minutes prior too and were still seated 15 minutes later. Server was terrible. Inconsistent service. Food arrived at all different times and we never had proper utensils or plates to eat the food. Very disappointed when dessert came. They were out of... More

We had not been to Buca di Beppo at this location for years, but decided to pay a visit as a result of watching an episode of "On the Menu" on TV recently. The show features amateur cooks creating dishes for US eateries, and the winner's creation appears on the menu the next day. Two pasta creations were declared winners,... More

Old world Italian cuisine and like going to Nonna's for Sunday dinner. Homemade pasta, authentic tomato sauce with good chunks of Roma tomatoes. The wait staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. And an added, nice touch - to get to our seats with my wheelchair-bound mother-in-law - we had to pass through the kitchen where we were greeted by the... More

Went on a Monday early evening..This alone should ensure good service, maybe not.. We waited 15 plus minutes for our first round of drinks. Our calamari arrived 15 minutes after this..We ordered both at the same time..
