Buca di Beppo - Castleton Square Ratings and Reviews

The food was mediocre at best. Portions were gigantic - we expected family style but this was beyond that. Kids portions were adult sized or bigger. Service was unenthusiastic and it was difficult getting things on time ( one entree came out 5-10 minutes before any others). Not remotely worth the money. Choose somewhere else if you're looking for a positive dining experience.

They definitely cater to large groups - the place was packed with tables of 10+. We were seated immediately and everything started off great, we got drinks and placed our order. Our food came out quickly, but we never saw our waiter again until he brought the check. I sat for 15 minutes with an empty glass and finally had to flag down another worker to get a refill. The dishes we choose (baked ziti, baked penne and stuffed shells ) were all "ok" - but not much flavor. Pretty unimpressed all around. I do love th decor, the feel and the family style - but the food and service were average at best.

When the brought out appetizers they were not well done. We sent it back and they were brought back the same way. We gave up and my daughters are them. It was extremely noisy. I understand that this is a family restaurant but there were several customers at tables that were screaming at each other from across the table. It is not a place to go if you have an headache or expecting a some what moderately normal eating environment.

The hostess was very good and hospitable. Unfortunately, that was the only outstanding part of the visit. We've been going to this location for several years and it has gone way down hill. The building is decrepit, some of the pictures on the wall at the table we were sitting at had mold on them, and the salad we got was mostly wilted lettuce. And one of the waitresses that was working the table next to us reaked of smoke. So every time she walked by our table, we were inundated with cigarette smell for a couple minutes. Not very appetizing. She has every right to smoke...that's her personal business and not mine. However, my mom and I didn't really care to smell it while we were trying to enjoy our dinner.

Very nice for a chain restaurant. Excellent fried calamari. Attentive waitress kept glasses filled and checked back every few minutes. Entrees were good; I might even say excellent for the price for a nice casual dinner.
Great Meal for a Special Occasion
I took my mother here for a special day and we had a wonderful experience. I have been here before, but this time was the best of all. Notably the staff were happy, engaged, and approachable. The food was fantastic. My only concern that may prevent me from visiting on a more routine basis is the price. Try to invite more than just two people in your group so the a la carte options divide well. Hope to visit again sometime!
Fresh, tasty, eye-appealing food
Pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the staff, which included a tour right through the kitchen. Felt like your favorite neighbor's cozy home.
Option to order from any menu at any time.
Lunch menu includes individual sizes. Dinner menu includes portion sizes to share with family or friends - Kid-friendly.
Good good, bad wait...
I've eaten at Buca di Beppos all over the country, and the experience is consistently good- good food, good value, good time overall. This most recent visit was not a 5 star experience. We waited 40 minutes AFTER our reservation time to be seated, and then another 15 minutes after we were seated to get drinks. The food came out delicious and quickly after that, but we were also next to a table of twelve 14-year-old girls at a birthday party, so my ears were ringing after the meal. Disappointed in this experience, but will try again at other locations
