Buca di Beppo - Cincinnati Ratings and Reviews
Buca di Beppo
The quality of the food is good but it's the quantities that distinguish this restaurant from other Italian restaurants.
Too busy for good service
I had an Open Table reservation for a Saturday evening. We still had to wait about 15-20 minutes to get a table. It took about an hour to get our main entrees, and the table next to us complained about the same thing. We ordered the fettucine alfredo, which my kids usually LOVE, but it did not taste as if any cheese was added. They didn't touch it. I agreed, it tasted like it was only butter and cream, no cheese.

Perfect way to spend my birthday! Amazing food and super fun :)
Always a pleasure to visit
I love coming to this restaurant! Everyone is so friendly. Since this is our neighborhood restaurant, we come here quite a bit. Every time we visit, everything is always above our expectations! Keep up the great work!

Had to ask the server several times for things such as a glass of ice for the ice tea she brought with three ice cubes in it. No sugar on the table, had to ask for it twice.
We had a wonderful server and everything was perfect. Even though it was Prom night , our service was great and the food came out quickly
Not for lunch.
I went to Buca with one other person after learning they have a lunch menu. Don't be fooled. It is very limited... only offering the dinner, family-sized sides... and they are not staffed for a quick lunch on a work day (We were told they only had one cook) causing for slow service and cold pasta. The restaurant is WAY past their prime. They need a remodel. bad.
Family style fun
Fun family brunch. We got to try a variety of dishes and share family style. Our waitress was very attentive despite how busy the place was!
Big Group - No Problem!
Had a group of 14 with 5 separate sets of checks. Our Main waiter and staff did an excellent job managing that... Food as always was delicious. Will definitely be back!
My date and I had a reservation for 7:15. We arrived 30 minutes early as we came directly from a movie theater a short distance away. I checked in with the hostess, and within five minutes, she had a table for us. Great customer service!

Avoid the "wine room" we were there and it is the first everyone walks by as the servers describe the restaurant. All night we heard "this is the wine room..." And the description every minute or so we were there.

We enjoy Buca with family about every two months. This time it was just my wife and I. The restaurant had not gotten busy but we were seated in the Wine room with only another family. We were Ina booth and they were the seated at the table right next to us. It was unnecessary and awkward. Our server seemed to see us as an afterthought.

Not bad. I made a reservation at 8pm. But I had to wait a few mins.
Timing from kitchen to table needs work.
We had a group of 12 with us. The kids got a large cheese pizza and a kids alfredo to split. We got the baked ziti, ravioli, artichoke dip and salad. The pizza was cold and bland. The dip had more garlic than desired and overpowered the dip. It took over 40 minutes to get our food out to us. It seemed like a long wait. We were going to a basketball game at Xavier so we did not have time to take food back to be heated or traded in for something different. Our waitress was ok, but seemed overwhelmed so I am not sure if maybe she was having a bad day, new waitress, etc.

My family and I had a great time as always. We hadn't been there in 3 months and our server recognized us. That was cool. Great food as always.
Very good basic Italian.
Enjoyed the Baked Ziti and the Apple-Gorgonzola salad - everything was very fresh. Service was a bit slow, but efficient enough.

We always seem to get seated near misbehaving, loud children. Bobby is always a pleasure to have as a server. He anticipates our every need. This is at the rookwood/norwood ohio restaurant.

The ambiance and good food. You felt like you were at home.
Won't be back
We had a reservation at 7, yet weren't seated until 7:40. The small room we were seated in was so loud we couldn't hear ourselves think. Food took forever and was very overpriced for both the amount and the quality. Don't go here.
Always a great experience. Quality food and reasonable prices.
Great Food for the family!
My son is a picky eater, but this is a great place with normal food that we all like to eat. The walls are filled with fun conversation starting pictures. We like to sit and talk and laugh for a nice meal time.
Family Night Out
With a family of 5 and in-laws it was a great night out!! The menu has something for everyone! The server was most excellent!! Thanks to all.
we will be back!!
we will be back!!

A fun place to take the family! We enjoyed 3 small dishes amongst 7 (4 adults and 3 children) of us and had plenty of leftovers to bring home...our waitress Tiffany was great despite being busy with other large parties. The kids really enjoyed the tour of the kitchen before getting seated. We will return!
I did not think that I would be happy after finding out there was no lunch menu on Sunday. But the stuffed chicken was tender and spiced well. The pasta was cooked perfectly. Very pleasantly surprised.
Nice night out with my family.
Nice night out with my family.
We made last minute reservations for 6:45 on Christmas day. When we got there we found they were about 45 min behind for seating - bummer but at least the weather was decent and the hostess was seating people as fast as she could - kept us informed as to when she was done seating a timeframe and didn't let any complaints get her down - she did an awesome job. Service was quick once we were seated and the food was great - specially liked the cheese ravioli with meat sauce and the cheesy garlic bread-yum lots of fresh garlic on the bread-Caesar salad for two was enough for 3 people. Would def go back and even on Christmas again. Was fun!
GREAT PLACE GREAT FOOD!!
There's only one downside to this terrific place with terrific food and a great atmosphere ... The hostess screaming so loud I think my ears are still bleeding 🙀
Christmas Day Experience
We had reservations and we're seated immediately. The entire staff was gracious, courteous and nicely attentive. Most of the parties were quite large, but all were handled with ease. It was a lovely experience.
Outstanding service and FUN!
Friendliness form the moment we arrived til the end. There are so many fun rooms and decorations! THe food was perfect and our server was truly exceptional! I'd hightly recommend this especially for a fun group party !
Justin was very helpful
The chairs needs to be updated. Very wobbing, not stable chairs. We had our changed three times , all three were wobbing. For Xmas eve the 20mins wait was not bad at all.

We loved the fun atmosphere and the great food. Service was excellent.
Nice quick yummy lunch!!
I had the Wedding Soup and Salad. The portions were very generous and really great quality. Service is traditionally snarky and fun, but alway attentive. Wait staff was always there with an ice tea refill, this always makes me happy. Thank you!!
Didn't Honor Reservation
Made a reservation on Open Table. Buca di Beppo called later to tell us they would not honor it. We went at a much later time, the only time they could seat us. But they seated 7 people at a table for 4 or 5. It was cramped and uncomfortable. The hostess was stern and unfriendly. Good service. OK food.
Overall Very Good
Food was good as usual, Veal Panetta was a little tough and dry otherwise every thing was very good. Service was great and timely and catered to our kids detailed orders.
I took my team out for an early Christmas dinner and the team couldn't have been happier. The room; although, not dedicated to us was spacious and everyone was able to have a conversation without yelling. Food of course was excellent and the server did a great job of keeping everything flowing.
Food is aways delicious. Bucca portions are huge, even when bills electing off of the lunch menu, so come hungry.
