    We’ve eaten a Buca di Beppo many time before, however the service we received this time was terrible. We were celebrating a birthday so it was a special occasion. We also had a reservation. We were seated promptly. It took 15 minutes for our our waiter to arrive. He took our drinks, appetizers, salad and food order and we didn’t see him again until our appetizers, salad and food arrived all at the same time 30-40 minutes later. He still didn’t bring our drinks. He had to go get those after he brought our food. Then we didn’t see him again until he brought our check. He didn’t offer us refills. We had helped ourselves to some take out containers that were stacked on the table nearby. He never acknowledged the birthday celebration although it was mentioned when we made the reservation. He was very disconnected and distracted as he was only at our table 3 times. The customer service was lacking. I did notice the waiter helping the table next to us seemed wonderful. He was busy but appeared attentive to the tables he served. I heard him introduce himself as TJ. I’d recommend TJ based upon what I saw. I would never recommend our waiter. The service from our waiter makes me never want to return!

    Everything just seemed like an afterthought. The restaurant wasn’t super busy but the service was really slow. I also put a note in my reservation that it was my twin sons’ birthday. Nothing really said or done. I bring my boys to Buca every year on my birthday, but this year didn’t really feel that special. No one was unfriendly, but we didn’t feel super welcome either. The staff was going through the motions of running a restaurant, but it didn’t feel like their overall heart was in it, if that makes sense.

    New Years Eve dinner with our Son and Wife. Service was excellent but the food very dry. Not sauced very good. Pizza looked good. I had the chicken Parma and it was not good.

    The food was per usual, the service was definitely lacking at our meal. It took rather long to get anything served and many things, like our drinks, took 20-30 minutes to get to our table. I wouldn’t usually make much of a comment, but every table around us was served more quickly.

    We arrived at our reservation time and ended up waiting 35 minutes for our table. What’s the point of a reservation? To avoid waiting! We will not visit that location again.

    Everything took longer than it should have. We waited 20 minutes for drinks and another 20 mins for our checks. We were frustrated that they only had a very limited menu and it didn’t include their signature anti pasta salad.

    The food is quite consistent to other Buca restaurants. The service was a bit slow as they were way understaffed. The service was very friendly, though. The Pope Table is amazing for groups of 10-13 people - everyone can see and talk to each other. We had a great time.

    Our waitress, I believe her name was Bree, must’ve been having a very bad night, she wasn’t rude, but she definitely was not welcoming or warm. It had been my first time coming to this restaurant, and I heard nothing but great things, it was definitely the opposite of great thanks. I won’t ever go back.

    We remember once upon a time when it was difficult to get a table at Buca's during the dinner hour--especially on a weekend. No more! Though we heard one table of laughter out of eyeshot, we were literally the only 2 patrons within our vision. Dinner was incredibly expensive: $20 for salad for 2; $30 for lasagna for 2; and $16 to split cheesecake. While service was quick and attentive, we likely won't return. We have other, far more reasonably-priced options.

    The air conditioning was out in the kitchen, so some menu items were not available. The whole restaurant was hot, We went to celebrate a birthday which we noted on our reservation. The sever never me to the birthday. The server told us one of our entrees was prepared incorrectly and asked if we would accept something we didn’t order.

    The overall experience wasn’t the best. I’ve been here before so I wasn’t expecting it to be great like all of the previous times. However, they were extremely short staffed and we had made a reservation 3 days prior for a party of 16. They had one waiter serving 6 tables of big parties. We waited an hour and a half, almost 2 hours for the food. Had to ask multiple times for water. And then the food was finally delivered it was okay. However, it was not worth the price for paying for family style eating. Overall it was just sad for the lack of service, subpar food, high prices and extremely long wait.

    It was cooler in the other part of the restaurant EXCEPT for the place we were seated! Very uncomfortable! Very disappointed in this place! Asked for bread but could only get it “with” our meal! Lasagna was not good at all! Will never go back here again! Should have left when we found out it only came in portions to feed 3 people not for 1!

    The atmosphere is very interesting. The pictures on the walls kept my kids amused and are definitely conversation starters. They take you through the kitchen before your seated so there is no wondering how clean it is. Virginia was our server and she was fantastic. She anticipated our needs and made sure we got everything we needed often times before we asked. The food was good and the servings large, even the children’s meals. We ordered the giant brownie dessert and 4 of us couldn’t quite finish it. The kids were very amused at the size of the dessert. It was great experience.
