Buca di Beppo - Pineville Ratings and Reviews
This was my 2nd disappointing visit here ...
This was my 2nd disappointing visit here. The 1st time they ran out of fried calamari, the 2nd time they ran out of meatballs! Really?? An Italian restaurant runs out of calamari and meatballs. We also ordered penne ala vodka. Unfortunately, our vodka sauce turned out to be almost non existent and very dry. Lastly, our dessert, tiramisu, must have just been removed from a freezer as it was as cold and hard as cheesecake. Certainly not worth it. Save your money and time and go to Carrabba's or Mama Ricottas. This place is done with.

Hostess forgot about us and left us sitting waiting for 20 minutes for our table for 6 per our reservation. Finally I asked what the status was to find out the other four people had been sitting at the table waiting for us for over 20 minutes. She wasn't very apologetic and wouldn't even look us in the eye. Service was terrible. Never got drinks we ordered, and our salad was delivered to another table. No amends were made for any of the errors. This was Christmas Day.

we had an overall good experience. we did have some of our food come out cold which was disappointing and then when we received our bill we were actually charged for both plates (the cold one and the recook) After bringing to the managers attention they did take off the entree that was cold. The staff unfortunately seemed quite frazzled, in fact after a server took our drink order then another server came over to take our order and was quite angry and told us that we were her table and not the other servers. She then walked away from our table quite upset . IT was very uncomfortable, however our original server was wonderful! We had eaten at the Buca in Florida years back and had a much better experience, that's what made us choose this restaurant for Christmas day. i would however go back to this location just not on a holiday just because i believe they weren't prepared for the crowd they had.

Really disappointed in the level of service we received. Our reservation was for 2 pm and I had noted that it was for our Family Christmas Celebration and asked for a private room. When we arrived, there appeared to be light numbers of wait staff and so only one section of the restaurant was in use so we were ushered into that same room: all 10 of us for our family celebration. I asked if we could not be seated in another area and was bluntly told "No" with no explanation. I then asked if the Pope room was open (it was not being used) and was told "you have to have asked for that ahead of time". I responded that I was not aware and since it was 2 pm and no one was in it (way after lunch, way before dinner) could we go ahead and eat there. The answer was another blunt "No". We were extremely crowded and had no room for anything at our table. The food was not overly good and the seating was really not good. At one time, we moved an empty oil (for bread) plate to the next empty table and the waitress came and snatched it up and said "please don't do that". We simply had no room at all.
Our special family Christmas time ended up being overcrowded, with poor service and not great food and we will not be returning. Very disappointing as we had eaten there before for the same event and had a very good time. Things have changed.

My family and I were really impressed with this restaurant! The food was delicious, and the service was excellent! Our server was very friendly and attentive. We were celebrating my son's graduation from college and had the most enjoyable time! They are able to accommodate large parties which I love and I was able to make this reservation online. Many places, you have to call in if you have a party over 8. My party of 18 was easily accommodated and served! This is a family-style menu. Large portions can serve 5 people and small can serve up to 3. The dishes are brought out on platters for everyone to enjoy!

Awful! We made reservations for the Thanksgiving night! The reservations featured a Thanksgiving menu. When we got the restaurant, after we were seated we were told that they had ran out of the thanksgiving menu. How do you run out?? Poor planning and bad management! Why would we want to eat pasta on Thanksgiving night? The Service Manager was not very helpful and did not really care. We got up and left and luckily found another restaurant that had the Thanksgiving Menu and we were able to reserve for a late dinner. But I was very disappointed with this reservation and the lack of interest from them management and staff there.

Love Buca. Loved our server. He was very prompt and friendly. Made a reservation online but somehow got seated in by the bar, not much of a family vibe in that area seeing as it was crazy loud and a high traffic area in the restaurant.

I had a nice talk with Ashley, one of the mangers in charge with catering and private dining, she was so helpful in helping me plan an office event and answered all my questions straight forward. She was so kind. She really listened to what I needed and then helped me create the best package. I'm looking forward to working with her now and in the future!

Buca as always was amazing. The authentic feeling food almost made you feel like you were in Italy. I love the fact that it is family style (very much an Italian tradition). Depending on what it is, it could do with having a few price drops every so often or some deals as the year goes on. But it was a great experience as always at Buca and I will definitely be back.

The wait staff is always friendly here and the food is usually very good. This time, I asked for a recommendation based on my taste preferences and the waiter was able to suggest the perfect meal. Drinks were refilled in a timely fashion and fresh bread was kept in good supply. Fun was had by all!

Set dinner at 545, ordered spaghetti and meatballs, after about 20 minutes they told us that it would be 20-30 minutes wait for meatballs. Seriously, an Italian restaurant with no meat balls. Then charged us for meatballs on the invoice which had to be corrected.

We visited another location in Hawaii for the first time and food was well seasoned and had friendly staff even on a regular night. This one was good but not to the standards of the other especially since it was Father's Day. We would go back though.
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
