"Ordinarily Buca is a favorite go to for some great comfort food and a fun experience. While our server was really personable and lively, he didn't deliver the food. We waited a half an hour for our calamari appetizer, but wait he brought our salad first. Finally the calamari came. We waited over an hour for our entres. Last, the AC was really pumped up. Outside the weather was mild. Inside was freezing. Anyway of course I will go back. Just hope the experience will be better."

"Buca di Beppo is usually a great Christmas Eve tradition. But this time we decided we're never coming back. It took 2+ hours for our drinks to come out and by the time we actually got food it was 9 o'clock. We had a reservation at 6 o'clock and they didn't seat us for another 30 minutes. Our server literally cried at our table in stress. The manager was a complete wimp and was hiding in the kitchen. Worst experience ever and ruined a Christmas tradition ."

"As members of Buca's e-club, I occasionally get enticing offers, and their one-day half-off spaghetti special was too tempting to pass up. We got the spaghetti and meatballs, and when they say meatballs, they mean MEATBALLS...they're not only huge, but they're quite tasty, too."

"I've been to Buca di Beppo in Palo Alto several times and it's never a disappointment. The server's are always very patient/friendly and professional. They provide helpful suggestions on new menu items as well. The food is ALWAYS excellent and I love looking at ALL of the pictures they have up on their walls. It was wonderful that they were open on Christmas day as it's always a homey place to dine."

"food was good. service was sllloooooow.... I never did get any extra napkins that u asked for 3 times and I left a little thirsty cause the water was never refilled after asking several times.... after we ate we waited again for the check. half the party left and we were still waiting. we probably could've walked out and nobody notice. we were a party of 4 & were seated closely next to another large party. the chairs between the two families were constantly bumping and having you have to get up to let another person through constantly. lucky the food was good."

"Came in 15 minutes early of my reservations. She said our table is not ready. 50% of first flr was open and empty. The hostess asked us to wait outside where it was freezing cold. Asked her if we could sit at the bar since we want to order drinks. She said no. Ignored her and went to the bar anyway. No bartender around. Asked some servers and they were somewhat rude and helpless. One guy came around and said the bartender will be there in 5 mins. Still no one to take our order. Finally got seated. By then service was great. Waitress was attentive and helpful. Food came right away and was hot. We felt though that we were rushed to get out of there because of other parties coming in. I met with friends that had not seen for months and we were having great conversations around dinner. Server was coming around every 10mins. Finally, we got the hint. Other than that, food was awesome as usual. Will not come back anytime soon though."

"we had a crew of 20 for dinner - 4 more than our reservation.
they gladly accommodated us
great place for a group that large - the quality of the food is outstanding - very large portions - order less than you need.
