Good food, good service.. Please remember that the portions served here is big so if you are just the two then you might want to order one dish and share... Unless of course you want to take some home for next day lunch/dinner...

Not what I expected. Wait staff was so-so for Valentine's day. Didn't like walking through the kitchen to get to the table. Meatball size was impressive, however the sauce was nothing to brag about. 1st & last time going there.

We have always enjoyed going to Buca for a special occasion meal. For this meal we made reservations about 30 days in advance. We arrived about ten minutes early and were seated on time, then place our order and received the bread/salad appetizer. Then everything went down hill. After about an hour had passed since receiving the salad, we still... More

My family and I ate here last month to celebrate. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed the apple gorgonzola salad as well as the other dishes. The waitstaff proved friendly and helpful when deciding what to order. We will dine here again when in the mood to celebrate!

food was exactly what I expect and want from Buca's but our waitress went above and beyond. Table of 18 and our drinks were always full, order was taken promptly and came out quick, even though we came in at 9:30.

Looking for a great family environment with excellent service and good food, try Buca di Beppo. Food served family style. Salads are outstanding, other entrees tend to be average for a good Italian restaurant. Chicken Parmesan and Carbonara pasta were very tasty. If you want desserts, error on the small size or one less entrees to save room. They are... More

I have only been here a couple of times and always in the "Pope Room" where they can seat a large party. There were about 20 of us and the wait staff did a great job of keeping up with us all. They were also good at splitting one check bwt 3 of us singles that shared. Our food was... More

A very pleasant and filling meal prepared perfectly. The service was second to none and the establishment was clean and happy. The servers appeared to like working here. It is pretty large so I'm sure it can get busy and loud at times but tonight it was perfect. No wait, cold draft beer, very pleased. For decent Italian it's a... More

My husband and I went to Buca because we had received a gift card for Christmas and were in the area. We went on a weekday around 1:30 and there were very few other tables. The dining room we were seated in smelled like mildew and wet towels and we were seated in between the only other two (very loud)... More
