Good food as always. Just wish the waiter had advised us better on portions. When we ordered we asked him if that was enough or too much. He said enough with a little bit of leftovers however we had LOTS of leftovers. Instead of 4 large dishes we could have ordered 4 small. Wished he would have helped us right size our order.

We all had an awesome time, our server was excellent and funny and the food was fantastic down to the desert which we ordered The Colossal Brownie Sundae, OMG! I'd don't get to come as often but when I do I'm always satisfied with your wonderful service and fantastic food, thank you.

Very disappointed. Booked the table far in advance and specifically asked for the Popes Round table for my 62d birthday celebration with my whole extended family from all over the island. Instead we were put at a linear table in the middle of a loud great room. As a result no one in the family could visit with any other family members except the one seated next to them, due to room noise and table set up. Food excellent but the serving sequence was botched. No water refills, no bread until we asked, side dishes presented far in advance of entrees and different family members received their entree far in advance or far later than others, making those that received them first hesitant to eat while others had no food. I'm a long time patron and was terribly disappointed and unimpressed with the seating given the specific ask and the sketchy service. We won't use Buca do Beppo for any family gatherings in the future. Good food though.

I used to go to this restaurant quite often in the past, but had not gone for a while. I was disappointed with the quality and taste of the food, as was the other person in my party. We had a great salad, but the entrees were not very good at all. They were tasteless for the most part.
The Chicken Limon faired better than the Veal Saltimbocca. The veal was dry & looked gray, and the capers were the only flavor.

I love this restaurant. It’s grown to be one of my favorites while I’ve been here in Honolulu. I was a bit disappointed by my last visit though, which is disappointing to me because I’m always thoroughly pleased when I go to Buca. This time though: our table and seats were still dirty, our waitress had an extremely hard time keeping up as she said her other tables were on the other side of the restaurant, - we ended up getting most of what we asked for from random staff passing by, sometimes after I got up to go find someone - and our food had other food in it (like a few broccoli and fettuccini pastas - but our meal was not made with broccoli or fettuccine in it!) Silver lining: it really is a great restaurant. Maybe because it was packed to 200% that day with birthday parties they were not on their A-game? Honestly, that’s really the only thing I don’t like about Buca; the number of children's parties they host. Sometimes it’s so loud, and it can be annoying sitting next to 15 screaming kids. But I’ll still give them chances, because as I said, it’s a great place. I’ll be specific about seating request next time I make the reservation though.

Only no happy that we have reservation at 6:45pm , and we got seat after 7pm. The host asked me if every one is here? I said yes. He said to me everyone is here, and he sounded like not believe me. When we entered to the dining room, there were a lot of empty tables. Why we can't get the table on time?

I used open table to make our reservations, its a good thing Buca called to confirm, they had us down for 230pm but my reservations which I have a copy for was 530pm, my time was corrected. We had a great time, when our Zita course came it was cold, we told our server and he brought another hot Zita to our table. Customer service is outstanding, we will go back there and also recommend Buca to Ohana and friends.

I've been going to Buca since they opened in Honolulu. Maybe today was a bad day? A different chef? Whatever the case, today's lunch was not good. Fettuccine Alfredo was clumpy and dry, as if sitting under the heating lamp. Kitchen "remade" it, looked like same clump with Alfredo sauce from jar. At least pretend well, and warm pasta if you're remaking it.
It was my first time going to Buca with ...
It was my first time going to Buca with less than 10 people and there was only three of us and we ordered a small appetizer, the waiter asked if we wanted an extra small portion and since we didn't want to waste food - we said yes - but we still had to pay the regular price! I thought it's a bit ridiculous since he never told us that we will be paying the same price no matter the portion, which was in the end - $16.99 for 6 pieces of mozzarella and tomato.
Then the food came, it was okay, service was also okay. Which is why it was just an "okay" restaurant overall.

The food was pretty good and we got great service when it came to where we wanted to sit. When it came to our server, she seemed in a huge hurry the whole time so it was a little awkward, but other than that pretty good experience dining here!

The eggplant parmigiana was nice, fresh, and hot. I really enjoyed it. Their marinara is very good. My partner enjoyed the nightly special, a wide-noodled shrimp pasta dish, which he enjoyed. For dessert, we had the cannoli. I enjoyed the cannoli, though my baker partner thought the cannoli shell could have been more crisp and the filling could have been smoother. Be advised though that the restaurant is fairly loud especially if you're next to a birthday party, which there will always be one as the restaurant has many large tables for larger groups.

Finally got a handle on the volume of food in each small or large order--i.e., large volumes of food. Ordered just the right amount for our table of 4--3 dishes.
Spaghetti and meatballs were tasty and filling as usual and the veal with prosciutto was plentiful but a bit on the firm side. Finally the garden salad seemed so large but we managed to polish it off as well.
great place to dine after a movie!

This was some of the worst Italian food that I have ever had. The food had no flavor aside from being overly salty. Additionally, their meals "are made to share" (AKA it is easier for them to cook in bulk) so if you go out to eat with just one other person, you are forced to agree upon a dish to share. To top it all off, the food was extremely overpriced for the poor quality that it was.
I will never go there again and I will make a point to warn as many people against going as I possibly can. I think I would have enjoyed a McDonalds hamburger more.

I have been to Buca's several times and they never fail to please! Great menu, great service and you can't beat the value for your money. I will be back there again and again! The only thing I will add is that you shouldn't expect it to be quiet and romantic, I have found it to be always be very lively.

Always a nice place to come to with plenty of food, even with small orders. Make your reservation by the Open Table website or the app well in advance as specific days/times can become very crowded. Dress here is casual and the wait staff are very friendly. Make sure to save room for the cheesecake!

We were celebrating Father's Day. As such, there were many families with children celebrating, as well as a couple of birthdays. This is a fun place, with a loud, but bearable atmosphere. Good for larger group gatherings or celebrations.

Food was good and our waitress was attentive but the hostess seated us near the bus station which was very noisy and distracting. We were also seated in a section that needed to use our table for a large party about 45 minutes after our reservation. Nobody rushed us to leave, but it was a little uncomfortable. I think they should leave the tables near the bussing station for walk in diners, otherwise why make a reservation?
