Buca di Beppo - Sacramento Ratings and Reviews
Fantastic dinner once again. Bucca doesn't disappoint. The only downside to our meal was the pushiness of our waiter. He was very friendly and outgoing but kept trying to upsale us on EVERYTHING. It got kinda annoying when he questioned us multiple times on why we are not ordering a carafe of sangria instead of our two glasses. No matter what we said he kept pushing us to order more. Not a huge deal but really annoying
Food portions are way too large. I was on a date and we both ordered our own dish. We ate less than a quarter of what we were served. All entrees were $22+. This is not a place to go if you are not sharing a dish. It is good for groups of 6 or more. Only 2 dishes would be needed to feed 6 people. The restaurant needs some small plate options for smaller groups. Such a waste of food. The decor was tired; the whole restaurant needed a refresh. I would definitely not go back unless forced to for some sort of group event.
We had a great early dinner at Sacto Buca. We come here quite often because Jeff loves the Spaghetti and Meatballs. He also enjoys the rosemary potatoes and garlic bread. Randy and I love the stuffed Canneloni. Anna was our server and she does a great job; she is friendly, efficient, and fast, but takes time to visit with her customers. We had a great time and will return again. We get the coupons on-line and appreciate the savings. We also have had Amanda as a server and she is also terrific at her job!
Compared to other Buca Di Beppo restaurants this was poor. It was my wife's birthday so ordered the cake and expected the normal happy birthday song by the staff - sadly nothing. The cake was plonked down and the waiter disappeared. The service was so slow I could have cooked it myself.
For a Saturday night the place didn't seem busy so perhaps others had had the same experience.
Will be passing this place in future visits to Sacramento.
This is my restaurant of choice to annually have Mother's Day dinner with the family. I love the food, the service, the atmosphere/environment. This is probably the closest of being in Italy I'll ever get-- you kinda feel like you're there.
Always impressed .
The food has become extremely overpriced for what they offer. The Sangria Carraffe was $25 with no fruit pieces. Just cheap table wine and fruit juice with too much ice.
I got the wool pulled over my eyes because the previous server switched gift cards on me and when I tried to use it, it had a zero balance. "Always double check the balance and trust no one"
Probably the last time I will ever go to Bucca, it's just not worth it. I mean Olive Garden is better and this is Olive Garden we are talking about.
Our waiter was scattered brained and very inattentive. One of the pasta dishes we ordered had a piece of hair in it and it was quickly replaced. They were out of the birthday cake that night, they ran out of bread, and lasagna. Our waiter charged us for 2 more teas than we ordered and kindly removed them when we inquired about it. When we were leaving he asked if he could run a credit card for us and we reminded him that, he had already brought us the corrected bill. We had already signed and paid. He also failed to apply the coupon as part of my birthday special that emailed to me. Our entire experience was awful, which was not a very happy birthday.
We were disappointed that they had a run out of the veal parmigiana... and we were told this after our appetizer.. so then we had to choose another entree.. we gave in to the chicken parmigiana to come out though... it was good, but our wait was long, our sangria took forever too 😐.. we were just a tad disappointed 😔
Here we go! Well the scenery was pretty nice, I mean it was a new place for me. I decided to start my night off with A SHOT of FIREBALL, only for the waiter to come back and tell me they ran out! (Who runs out of fireball?) obviously buca did. I ordered speghetti and meatballs and could wait for my order to get to my table ( the waiter was taking forever) the speghetti looked like it was 3 big meatballs sitting on top of noodles! At that moment I wished I was at speghetti factory. For the price of their food I'd suggest buca step up their game! My bowl of sauceless carbs turned me off from buca di peppo! ... this was Valentine's Day night!
This classic family style Italian restaurant is great place to celebrate in a fun environment especially if you want to be loud and have a blast without offending the table next to you. Maybe not the best place for a romantic and intimate dinner with that special one but definitely a place for lovers after the formalities of impressing one another.
We love the coziness of the table in the kitchen. Although a table for 4, it seats five of us, including 3 tall men/boys, quite comfortably. We also love interacting with the kitchen staff and watching other people (sometimes familiar faces) come through. Just the right blend of privacy and socializing.
Food wasn't as good as usual. The meat sauce pasta had no flavor, the garlic bread was uneatable ( they didn't charge us for it) and the chicken lemone was dry. Service was great (or server was the best we ever had (Monika I think) and made up for the not so tasty food. We had fun.
I wonder if they have a new team in the kitchen??? Been there a few times and the food was great before so will be going again. You should give it a try.
