Buca di Beppo - Pineville Ratings and Reviews
There were 3 of us dining on Easter. We began our meal with an appetizer of mini meatballs and ordered 3 different dishes with a side of pasta. Meatballs were very few for the dollar. When we received our main coarse, chicken was just warm and not very tasty. Also, for the money, not worth it. Probably will not be visiting in the near future.
This visit was my last straw!
Let me start by saying how much I used to love going to Buca! My husband and I ate there at least 3 or 4 times a month. Sometimes more. However, over the past year we have noticed a decline in our dining satisfaction. This past experience is my final straw. My son, who lives in TN was home visiting. His birthday is next week so we decided to celebrate early. Of all the places we could have gone, he decided he wanted to go to Buca. We were seated in a timely manner, but quickly felt the humid atmosphere. We ordered our drinks and asked our server if she could mention to management that it was HOT. Not just uncomfortable, but HOT. Others around us were also complaining. I wish I had gotten up and left. It was so hot, we did not eat our entrees and we ordered cake to go. I spent $200 and i am done with Buca for a while!! I also sent a review to Buca directly
Valentine's Day Dinner
We did not understand that the menu was set up for family style versus individual ordering when we booked a reservation. With that aside, spending $20 for a salad (lettuce) for two with minimal protein seemed high. There was lots of chatter among the waitstaff often yelling over tables to discuss items or issues.
Super Group meal celebration
Our server, Daniel, started our group dinner out on the right track. And he kept it that way the whole meal. He was friendly, professional and kept the meal moving at the perfect pace. And as usual, the Apple Gorgonzola salad, cheesey bread Florentine and Prosciutto Stuffed chicken was excellent
Christmas at Buca di Beppo
Was looking for a restaurant that would be opened on Christmas and found the restaurant online at Opentable.com . First time at this restaurant and had a walk through of the Kitchen ...thought that was odd. For two of us we ordered a small Apple-Gorgonzola Salad, Bruschetta, Alfredo Fettuccine, Chicken Stuffed Prosciutto, and Penne al Forno. The Apple-Gorgonzola Salad, Bruschetta, and Chicken Stuffed Prosciutto were wonderful. The Alfredo Fettuccine was dry and the Penne al Forno was burnt and dry on the top and was too spicey for us to eat. We also had cheesecake for dessert. Our waiter Parrish was wonderful! Will be back~
My family enjoyed Christmas Eve dinner there.
This was a place were even the fussiest of family members enjoyed the meal. After taking my mother to a swanky uptown restaurant last year, which she hated (too fancy!), we hit the ball out of the park with Buca di Beppo. Something for everyone, tasty food and a lot of fun.
Our family of four visited Buca di Beppo in Pineville, NC for the first time on Thanksgiving Eve. We were visiting the area during the Thanksgiving holiday and wanted to have a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We found them on Open Table. We arrived early and our reservation was ready, so we were seated right away... no delay. The service, the food, and the ambiance was amazing. We weren't sure what to expect as this was our first time having dinner out on Thanksgiving. Buca exceeded our expectations. In addition to their regular italian menu, they were offering a family style Thanksgiving meal, which is why we reserved there. Our family enjoyed a traditional, family style Thanksgiving meal with wonderful service and great ambiance... we could not have asked for more. The food was delicious, best stuffing we have ever had. We will be back next year, with our new tradition of eating at Buca. Thank you!

Buca di Beppo is our family's favorite place to eat, and we are always glad to visit a city that has one. The ravioli is my favorite, and my son's favorite is the lasagna. We tried dessert this time. (Cheesecake and double chocolate cake) We took our dessert to go and really enjoyed eating it later.
After waiting to be seated for 15-20 minutes after our reservation and then waiting a good bit longer for our server, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at Buca. The eggplant parmesan was delicious and sufficiently huge for two people. The side of broccoli was also prepared nicely. The tiramisu was absolutely delectable, and was a great value for the huge portion offered!
Disappointing Food Taste
My husband and I were excited to eat here for our first time. We thought that the food must be amazing by the amount of people waiting to get in. We enjoyed the first timers restaurant tour. The food left a lot to be desired. My husband ordered the chicken parmesan which was very bland tasting. He added salt and pepper to it to try and give it some flavor but it never got past bland. I had the pepperoni pizza. I like a thin crust so I was excited by the pizza visual but the crust was too tough to bite through and took to long to chew. It was also very greasy. Needless to say we won't eat there again.

Did not realize this restaurant served "family style" - ordered the small portion and they said it would feed 2 or 3 .... and they were right - took remainder home and had 2 other meals from it. The food was delicious and service was great! I will definitely visit this restaurant again.....
