"The margherita pizza was undercooked to the point where the center of the pizza was doughy. As much as they charge for the appetizers they should have given us more calamari. Instead the portion was spread thinly made to look like there was a large amount.
I've been going to other buca di beppo locations for two decades and will tell you right now that they are, if not already, going to have problems with their business model. Shrinking portions, increased prices and subpar service equals a recipe for a failed business."

"Quantity over quality. Everything was absolutely tasteless and the oh so simple broccoli was even completely overlooked to mush. Takes a lot (or lack of) skill to even achieve that. The service is also extremely slow. Why are we waiting over two hours for one pasta dish and the waiter constantly lying to us that it will "be right out" because the kitchen is "backed up". Never coming back to any location."

"We made a reservation on open table and when we got there, they said they could not seat us and we're too busy. We told them we had a reservation and they said they could see the reservation but that they still could not seat us. Don't ever go here and don't try to make a reservation because they will not honor it."

"The wait person was amazingly slow. There were hardly any other diners in the restaurant and we waited a truly ridiculous about of time. We ordered a carafe of Sangria and the brought it with tiny little juice glasses. Ok, that's how it's served, but I want a wine glass. So we asked for 3 wine glasses. 20 minutes later we still didn't have the glasses. The food was good as it always is there. But the staff just doesn't care."

"We had Christmas dinner for 4 and the service was terrible. Early reservation restaurant wasn't crowded yet took 45 min just to take drink order. Food was not there after an hour. Complained to asst manager and no help she told me everyone else is complaining too. Wrote to franchise partner never heard back at all. Complaints not acknowledged at all. They do not care about customers dining experience."

"We had a reservation, thank goodness, since they were not accepting "walk-ins".
Food was good. Service was slow, but to be fair, our server appeared to be very busy.
Who knows, maybe we'll eat there again next year - that would be 3rd year in a row for Christmas dinner!!

"I have been here a few times before. However, tonight was the night of major disappointment. Thankfully, the hostess seating us provided us menus. From that point on, it was up to our table to remind the nearby wait staff to provide us utensils, to pick up our order, to provide us bowls for our soup, and to get the bill to our table. We really don't know, even at this time, who our appointed waiter or waitress was. The attending staff were very apologetic. However, the service never improved. Grant you, the establishment was busy, but not that busy. It is their responsibility to take care of their guests. Needless to say, those dining with us, are very hesitant to visit this establishment again. If you have another restaurant to go to, consider the other. This is the first OpenTable review, after many, that I have to unfortunately provide a poor review. Sorry Buca, you need to really get your act together."

"This time there was NO wait as we were there just before 5pm. We ordered, ate, and was done in an hour. In and out efficiently, tummy happy! The pick your own pasta ingredients was excellent. We had linguine with meat sauce, 3 veggies (mushrooms, artichoke, roma tomatoes), spicy Italian sausage and a pinch of crushed red pepper. Tasty! A week ago, we ordered the small, was perfect for two (we were hungry). This time, we ordered a large to take home the extra servings. Good experience this time. Previous experience had long wait even with reservation, crowded and noisy. This time better. The trick is to get there early before the dinner crowd!"

"Our waiter forgot our appetizer - the manager said she" took if off our bill." No, it was never on our bill. She made it sound as though she was doing us a favor. We have been here several times, but this by far was the worse experience."

"Me and my boyfriend went in on thursday night, it was our first time there, for my birthday with no idea they were closing, as we walked in the lady at the counter was very nice, when we sat down and we finally met our waitress she gave off a bad vide, i do understand that it was closing but i find even if you are closing its always good to give good customer service. she seem like she was trying to rush us so we can just leave, and she was also complaining about other employees to her co-worker."
