Buca di Beppo - Columbus Ratings and Reviews

Made a reservation, but still waited as if we walked in. Once we we're seated our salad came out, but we had to wait 13 more minutes to receive silverware to eat (Our waiter said the kitchen was backed up). Once the main course came the food was wrong (which again took forever) so our waitress who was great said the kitchen staff is very slow tonight! We asked for the check and the manager... He comes over and said we're short staffed we're doing the best we can then walked away! I'am not sure what happened this weekend, but this use to be our go to family style restaurant.

this is a great place for a large group with a good menu. The calamari is EXCELLENT and the sauce nice and spicy. If you order the spaghetti and meatballs for 3 be sure to always order an extra meatball as it only comes with two and no one likes to share! The pasta dishes are so much better than the chicken and I would definitely do the lasagna. Be ready to skip dessert as you will fill up on the good bread and appetizers.

As always, Bucca did not disappoint. Stopped in for a bite of dinner following a show at Nationwide Arena. I had tried to make a last minute reservation before the show but they were booked, so after the show it was. And it worked out just perfect for us. The staff was very courteous, polite and attentive.

We got a table and waited and was greeted by the server they left with our drink order and appetizer and forgot to bring it back we had another waitress walk by and asked if we've been helped and said somebody placed an order for us only to find out it wasn't placed. We had to reorder and the 2nd server was outstanding

We visit this location whenever we go to the Nationwide Arena next door. The service is always fast, food is delicious and hot, and the wait staff always friendly. if you are going to an event at the arena, arrive early at Buca because it fills up quickly.

We go to this restaurant about 6 times a year for family special events. This last time we spent over 200.00 and everything had an odd after taste to it. The food was off and it was consistant with each one of us. Very upset to spend that much money for something we didnt like.

Had a reservation and sat outside. Six of us and we were ignored for 20 mins. No water. Nothing.
Table next to us was just as slow.
We left and went to a burger place that had service. Much better. Sorry that it was bad Previous times it was a good experience.

Service was great. Food, however, was disappointing. Fast food is hotter and less microwave-tasting. Dessert came out ice cold, even though it supposedly took longer to heat up according to the menu. We will not be back.

Server was young which has some slight challenges serving a large group. Great attitude though, just lacked the experience a little. Ambiance was great. Overall good experience with international clients. Great location for groups.
We were there for a group event and about 1/2 the people there had never been to Buca, which shocked me, since this is such a go to place. Our server was great and addressed questions and made some great suggestions. She was sensitive to when our group needed more drinks, bread, etc. We were in the Grotto room as we had a number of people with hearing loss. This was great to keep away from the noisy restaurant but it was still tough to hear in this room. The food was good and the smaller entrees (serving2-3) worked really well for us. Overall, this was a really good dining experience.
Long on name shirt on game
Very disappointing experience
Practically empty restaurant
Music too loud; waitress didn't have it turned down even after she said she would
Chef not flexible - refused to not add bacon to the stuffed mushrooms appetizer
Pizza had an awful smelling cheese
Only the food is worth it.
Being a college student I decided to take my whole family here for my graduation dinner. When we had the reservation for 7:15 and did not get seated until 30 minutes later. We were fine with this since it was mothers day and graduation. We got to our table and our waiter was very nice. As the night went on, the staff stated they could not turn on the AC or open any doors in the more than warm building due to "corporate orders". We placed our orders and as the appetizer arrived we ate it. At this point a different waiter came over to our table and told us to place our dinner orders in. We had given our complete order to our first waiter and were disappointed with him losing our order. We waited another 40 minutes for our entrees to arrive after being spoken to the manager and once the food came it was spectacular. After eating, since it was already 9:20 we decided to get our food to go after getting a family picture. At which point the waiters insisted on getting more and more pictures. Agitated, half of our family left and the rest waited behind to pay the bill. This restaurant is not very friendly for movement of my 90 years old grandma and neither was the table big enough to fit all the food. Next holiday I hope they do not overbook their reservations and have multiple families in this same situation.
We contacted 2 months ahead of our graduation date of our OSU student, for a big family dinner at Buca ...we signed contracted and credit authorization for the reservation. We showed up and they did not plan properly and it took us getting pushy ...to get in after over 1.25 hours of wait past the reservation time. Highly disappointed and affected the celebration in a negative way... When it should have been a nice celebration...
Went on Mother's Day at 11:00am. Expected to have a brunch menu, but it was just the regular menu, so a little disappointing. The music was way to loud. We asked if it could be turned down, but it couldn't. Not a good place to go if you want to interact with anyone but the person sitting right next to you. Food was very good.
We had to wait over 45 minutes to be seated
We had a reservation and had to wait over 45 minutes to be seated. Then it took another 15 minutes before our waitress got our drink orders. They were overbooked and understaffed for a graduation weekend in Columbus.

Service was horrible,had to keep asking their waiters where ours was.. Had to ask for everything, bread etc.We ordered salad as a side with our Entree and a was told lettuce was being cut up and would get it soon.. To Mae a story short, Entree was finished and still no salad nor waiter had ask another waiter to pass on that we no longer wanted or needed our Salad . Nor did a Manager ever come by and apologize for the delay or lack of service.. This was Our first and last time to ever eat at this Restaurant again....

We had very good service. Our food varied. Some of the eggplant parmesan was tough and some was nice and tender. The pasta carbonara was good. Overall we had a good meal and a good time. We would recommend Buca as a good place to go.
