Buca di Beppo - Honolulu Ratings and Reviews

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 reservatio ...
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 ...
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?
Great family dinner
We experienced excellent service and good food with large portions. The price overall was a little more than our typical family night out. We arrived earlier than our reservation and were sat immediately. We will definitely eat here again.
Book the Kitchen Table at Bucca's
It was great sitting at the kitchen seating. Our server John was very knowledgeable of the menu and personable. He exemplified an excellence in "Customer Service". The Manager stopped by several times to make sure we were doing okay and the Chef also made sure the food was cooked just right. I would highly recommend booking this table you will not regret it!
It would be better if the waiter minimize babbling
The food was good and super cheap with coupons as usual. However, the old white waiter guy kept babbling or joking something all the time and that was ways too much. We went there for having a regular dinner, not a stand-up comedy show!

Nancy was really great! She was friendly, accommodating, observant & helpful. A great Mother's Day celebration with the Ohana.
Mahalo for the excellent food! Fried Calamari, Stuffed Mushrooms, Prosciutto stuffed chicken, Spaghetti with meatballs, tiramisu & the gigSntic brownie sundae were all Ono!!!

seating was a little cramped in a weird alcove. we stuck the kids way in there since the space was kind of tight for us adults. to make things worse, the booster seats were stored in an empty shelf behind my cousin, so she kept having to move. she finally just gave up and started handing the booster seats to the waitress who also remarked that they were stored in such a weird place.
the food is always delicious and our server was nice. only thing about her was she'd ask us a question & then walk away before we could answer. happened a few times, which we noticed and thought was pretty strange.
wish there was more than 1 bread basket and 1 plate with oil and balsamic for our long table of 12.
place was packed of course... Saturday night. lots of parties and birthdays. I basically had the birthday song memorized before I left.
love the place and will always come back despite the less than perfect experience this time around.

As always, we were very satisfied with the food. The service was not so great with the wait help (being young people) were more engaged in talking among themselves than paying attention to the needs of the customers. Had to ask for water refills twice when it wasn't even crowded.
Interesting decor; Very loud and crowded
Went here on a Friday night. Had reservations for 6pm, party of 4 to celebrate our daughter's birthday. First of all, if you did not have reservations, the wait was 2-hours long! The noise level is very high. When we were seated, the host took us through the kitchen and was giving us a tour, except we couldn't hear anything he said over the noise and the fact that he was talking and walking infront of us! Our table was in the back, but still noisy and directly under an A/C vent which was blowing cold air on our table, which made it uncomfortable and cooled off our food quickly. We ordered a large Ceasar salad, which is really good! Also got baked ziti, which was great and a large special pizza, which neither of us really cared for. The cheese had a funky taste and the overall taste was not what we were expecting. But we did like that the pizza crust was thin. The bread for the table was yuck. Wine, meh. Overall, meh. If you like dining in a loud environment then this place is for you. Me, I like a quiet dining experience.
