Festive evening with Good food and service

Took a chance on Buca's based on recommendation on busy New Year's eve and while we waited 45 minutes they got us in and food and service were excellent. Nice family atmosphere, generous portions and great desserts.

This place has decent food in a fun environment. While, that may sound like an endorsement, it isn't. Generally, you have to wait a while to get in. The service is hit-or-miss. The portions are HUGE, so you won't go home hungry or empty-handed. I expect better food and service for the price. Maybe, if you are with a fun... More

We ordered Take Out for Christmas Eve and when we got there, we knew that the staff was clearly not ready for the business. Orders were not ready and the line was growing. I am not sure what happened but I was not impressed. When we got our order finally after about a 45 minute wait, they forgot to put... More

WE celebrated our mom's 88th birthday in the Pope's room. It was nice for her,something different, but I was not impressed with the food and also thought it was way overpriced. I would not go again. We had problems with the service as well. Our server was rather unpleasant so we requested someone else and she was great.

Went for early lunch and service was slow to nonexistent and they weren't even busy. I ordered soup and it was luke warm, not much flavor and no salt on the table. We got oil and vinegar to start but no bread and the kids were hungry. It's a family style restaurant so was shocked that they brought crayons for... More

I was warned that Buca restaurants can be loud, but it was overwhelmingly loud. Two members of our group really couldn't hear anyone, so we ate and headed right out.

Head all these great comments about Buca di Beppo and how it was the best ever. My wife and I had lunch there. It was so so. The food was above average but nothing yo brag about. I ordered a pizza and it was wrong. She has pasta with white sauce. It was just pretty good. Just large portion. Not... More

Good food, fun atmosphere, but really big portions. This is not a place for 2 people. If you order the large lasagna, you will never eat lasagna again! It was enormous!
