Buca di Beppo - Honolulu Ratings and Reviews
We have experience working in a concession stand so we know what it feels like to service customers. I had previously ordered take out on-line to pay at location. Since expanding its restaurant seating but not expanding the kitchen, the restaurant was backed up on its orders. The staff remained calm and tried to fill all the take out orders as fast as they could. The line was long, the computerized registers kept shutting down, and customers were getting impatient. Since I didn't pay for my order on-line, thank you for the Open Table app, I booked a reservation for later that night and cancelled the take out order. The cashier was grateful. After our movie, it was still quite busy but we got our table quickly. The staff looked worn due to a very busy night but were still patient and cheery. After a busy night, the food was still hot, fresh, and delicious although they ran out of their signature appetizer bread.
The food came out quickly and was freshly made. The veggie pizza was outstanding, one of the best we've had with just the right amount of cheese and sauce and toppings. Macaroni rosa had just the right amount of chicken, sauce, and veggies. Now one of my favorites.
Service was excellent even if it was a very busy Saturday evening! We did not feel neglected.
We love Buca, but for once was disappointed. I ordered their Italian Primo Margarita which was weak and rather unappetizing. They changed their calamari dip to a spicier, unsweeter sauce which made us unhappy----we liked their original a whole lot better. The spicy sausage bolognese was good except they had not drained the pasta well and because of it, made the sauce thinner and minestrone soup-like. The pasta was fresh and good, but the sauce was watery.
This was a first time visit here. Arrived about 20 minutes early than my reservation time but was seated as soon as checked in at front door. Also, waiter greeted us (2) nicely and asked if it was the first time. After letting him know it was he said he would give us a quick tour of the place. Thought this was a little strange, but he sounded enthusiastic. Following him through the restaurant he took us into the kitchen and showed us there's a table inside the kitchen available for dining. Surprising because there was already a couple eating at that table. Also, all the kitchen workers and anyone else that looked like an employee there told us hello and greeted us as they passed. He also showed us where the men's and women's restroom were located. I also requested a booth seating and got my request. The food came quickly and were very good sized portions. There was a table with about a dozen people not too far from us and the waiters at one point made a big announcement of one of the diner's birthday and started singing and clapping a happy birthday song. This is a good place to bring a group of people for an occasion to celebrate something. Overall, a good place for families or large groups with good Italian food.
We are frequent visitors to Buca di Beppo at Ward Center in Honolulu and other locations when we travel. Our most recent visit a few days ago was awful. We were seated next to a very large group of adults who began playing charades just after we were seated. They were screaming loud. Our entire section pretty much cleared out soon after - very unhappy faces in our section of families who were likely there celebrating the holidays. What made it worse though, was that when I told our server Rosi that we wanted to move because of the screaming and since we couldn't hear each other, she got visibly irritated, mumbled that she would see if there was someplace to move us and left. A nice hostess moved us and apologized about the noise. Another nice and professional server at a nearby table also smiled and apologized about the noise. Rosi, however, who later brought our waters and one glass of wine that we had already ordered to our new table, simply dropped the drinks on our table without a glance at us. A professional server who cared about guests having a good experience, would have made some sort of apology about the noise, us being inconvenienced and wished us a good dinner. Not Rosi. She was unprofessional and obviously only concerned about the few minutes she spent with us and her lost tip.
Brought my sister here from out of town to celebrate her birthday. Very disappointed that all you do is place a candlestick on our table and sang a song that I couldn't even understand. Just a little dessert would have been nice. Most places do that. It was embarrassing to me. Won't be coming back to celebrate any other occasion.
Came for christmas day dinner, very happy we didnt have to cook on christmas as we had to work all day xmas eve. Got seated outside and it was perfect, service was great even though it was fully booked. The portions were huge (said serves 2) but made good leftovers.
It was a good experience for some of my members being their first time.
Food was large portions.
Garlic cheese bread was good and meatballs.
The Fettuccini Supremo was a bit dry, need more Alfredo sauce.
Service waiters were good!
Speed of the food was really good.
We had a Buca back home and have always loved the service and the food! The Buca here in Honolulu did not disappoint! Our waiter was right on top of everything, the food came out quick and the drinks were great! If you love great customer service, this place will never let you down!
