We made reservations on a busy Saturday night with a large group that had to be back at our hotel for an event. We were seated within five minutes of our reservation and at first were very pleased: we were toward the back of the restaurant in a quiet area. However, very soon two other large parties were seated in the same area and it was just as noisy as if we'd been in one of the main rooms.

Our waiter was very responsive in getting our orders, answering questions for our gluten-free and vegetarian friends, and going ahead and running the check while we waited. We were back for our show in plenty of time.

The food was good Italian fare and well-prepared, though not anything that stood out from other solid Italian places. Family-style made it easy to order and quick to be served.

If we had a Buca di Beppo in our part of the country, we'd give it a try based on this experience.

This was our first experience there and I have to say no one is rushing to go back. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful, but that's where the good stops! We had a reservation and I arrived with part of the party before the others. The hostess sat us right away, but when the other party members arrived they were told she had no idea where she had seated us and they coudl walk the restaurant looking for us. Really? Considering you sat me LESS than 5 minutes ago! The food tasted okay and there was more than enough, but I did not find it to be anything great. Sorry, but this is one place we will not rush back to.

Brought my kids to Buca for dinner. You definitely won't leave here hungry. Would like to have a smaller option for a single salad. This place is great for larger groups. A family of four to six would probably get the most out of the serving sizes here.

Bucas are pretty consistent no matter which location you go to. We ordered several pasta and meat dishes and they were all very good. Plenty of leftovers to take home.

this is a fun place and the volume of food is pretty unbelieveable. They could focus a bit more on quality and that would make a big difference
