Disappointed first time diner

First time to this restaurant and took over an hour and half to receive our entree. Our check was lost and our waitress seemed lost as well. Very disappointing.

Dined on February 14, 2016

Made a reservation for Valentine's Day. I totally understand it's going to be a little crazier than normal. That was expected. Reservations were for 7. We were seated around 7:05. (Off to a good start) Our server came over around 7:20 to ask for our drink order. Other waitresses were actually asking us if we had been seen because we were sitting so long with no drinks. Got our drinks around 7:40 (tea and water) the wine we ordered came about 10 minutes later. Our waiter took our order for garlic bread appetizer and chicken parm dinner around 7:55. (When the wine came) We received the bread at 8:40 and dinner came around 9:10. Never got refills or even seen our waiter. I've never had such poor service at Buca. Luckily my date and I had a wonderful time talking and laughing about it but it was a very poor experience.

Lack of service

Dined on October 24, 2015

My wife and I came in for anniversary of 18 years we talked with the waitress by the name of Amanda for approximately five minutes letting her know that it was a special Evening for my wife and I. Amanda told us she would be right back to take our order she brought us over our drinks and proceeded to ignore us for the next 15 minutes. I have dined at This restaurant before but would not recommend the service at this location.

Dinner for Birthday celebration

Dined on October 3, 2015

We were celebrating my daughters birthday who attends Duquesne University and we are from out of town. We were seated in a room with 3 parties who all had children under the age of 12 months who cried through most of our meal. Our server was not very attentive, we had to get someone to get us more ice water, additional napkins and silverware. Not a pleasant experience!

Surprisingly Tasty

vip
Dined on September 21, 2015

I'm not normally a fan of chain restaurants, but I was pleasantly surprised with this meal. The pasta dish was better than expected, although an Americanized version of some Italian classics it tasted like quality ingredients. We ordered the warm Spinach and tomato salad which was really great! I would definitely order it again. And of course, the garlic bread is always a good choice.

No Bread

We received no bread, even though we waited at least 1/2 hour for our food. Also, the pizza as not as good as at other Bucas. Too little eggplant.

It's hard to pick something that would be a favorite here. Every time we go in we force ourselves to try new things because everything we have had there has been great. I highly recommend the broccoli as it's amazing.

What a mistake

Dined on August 1, 2015

This was a very disappointing experience. The waitress was very unprofessional asking, "Do youze want drinks?" When we asked about a new item on the menu, she replied, "I have no friggin' idea." We ordered 3 entrees, 2 of them came and the last once did not - for 20 minutes. My mother asked for a glass of water and got a glass of ice. Just really an awful experience. The manager did comp us that entrée after we said that we would not be paying for it and tried to make some excuses.

Food was great!

Dined on July 29, 2015

On my reservation I requested a table. We were shown to a booth. I then stated I would like a table. The hostess then showed us to a half booth half table. I asked again please could we have a table. She then proceeded to take us in a room with a large table. There were no other diners in this room. Very quiet and very nice. Since we were out of sight we were definitely out of mind. Food was good but service was spotty. I think since we were located out of sight, our waitress forgot about us. She was very attentive and personable when she was there but we were forgotten about at times. There were long waits between transitions from drinks to salad to food and then to dessert. It was not that busy on a Wednesday night, I just think we were forgotten about at times.

Italian comfort food

Dined on July 29, 2015

Buca is a great place to go with a larger group. The food has been consistently good and made with quality ingredients. The prices there have increased over the years and it can get expensive for a couple to dine. They do issue coupons frequently and that is helpful. Two of us recently had lunch with a small lasagna and small salad and the bill was over $35. Thankfully we had a 1/2 off coupon for the lasagna and that knocked off $10.

Another great meal at Buca!

Dined on July 19, 2015

This was our second meal in as many weeks at Buca. We returned sooner than expected for two reasons: we had a coupon, but mainly, the food was so good last time we were more than happy to ret urn so soon. We were seated promptly. The only thing that marred our visit was that the hostess tried to seat us at a table she saw needed wiped off. When I asked if it could be cleared, she did so, but left us with a wet seat. So I asked if it could be wiped off, and was left with a not-so-wet but still wet seat. Again. Out of frustration I asked for a manager and was seated at another DRY table. Server soon came over and took our orders. Then the manager, Larry, did come over. I explained the situation to him, and he politely listened and said he would take care of it. Later learned he offered dessert on the house for us, but we declined. I did not complain in order to get a comp, but was just appreciative of his attention to the matter. Service was EXCELLENT. We ordered our favorite salad, Apple Gargonzola, and Penne al Forno. Both were delicious. Server kept bread and beverages filled. The excellent service and great food made up for our earlier experience. And no, that would not prevent me from returning. On the way out, we stopped and thanked Larry again. This is a restaurant worth returning to, again and again. And we will!

Think "All You Can Eat"

Dined on July 19, 2015

We dined with another couple and all ordered the "small" serving of our dinner selection. Even after sharing a taste with everyone, and dining on your own selection, there was still another full dinner left over for each of us to take home! If you don't like garlic, Buca is NOT the place for you! Appetizers: we got the small calamari and it was more than enough for 3 people. The marinara that came with it was delicious, but the calamari itself was a bit on the chewy side. Desert: We ordered a Tiramisu, and again, with 4 of us having a serving, there was still half of it left.

Fun place to eat!

Dined on July 18, 2015

I have been to Buca di Beppo at various locations over the years. This restaurant never fails to present a good Italian meal with a bit of fun. The portions are large and this time I only had one other person with me. So, we ended up bringing a lot of food home. However with a crowd, this is a great place to share some food and enjoy a crowd pleasing meal. If you ever want to do something really fun, book the kitchen table and watch them make dinner for all the guests!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more dishes. The chicken inferno was amazing and the lettuce salad was refreshing. The table ordered several dishes – all thought it was great, Everyone loved the spicy rigatoni . Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

Kid friendly "Pope room dining"

Dined on May 23, 2015

We made reservations for a party of 6 adults and 3 kids (ages 4-5). We were put in a private "Pope" room with a large lazy susan in the middle of a gigantic table that seated about 12. It was a perfect room, as the kids were able to get up and walk around while also staying with our dining party. The service and food was also excellent. A wonderful experience, all around!

Waitress tried- overpriced

Dined on May 1, 2015

Dissappointed . A party of 10 was squeezed into long narrow booth, so it was impossible for people on each end to talk to each other. Entrees were very long in coming, and didn't come all at once. We got our green beans, but not our chicken for at least another 10 min. Green beans were cold before we ate them. Most others were able well into their meals when we got ours. Our waitress was trying very hard and pleasant, but she was frustrated with the kitchen. I felt the prices were very over priced as everything is ala carte. It's a family style place, but the table wasn't conducive for sharing.

Enjoyed the food but other diners were too loud

Dined on April 10, 2015

The food and service was fine. We had the warm spinach salad and the chicken carbonara. The negative was that we were seated at one of those two person tables which had limited space for our plates and the family style food plates. We were also seated near a group of six very loud customers that were having a great time but my wife and I could not hear each other.

Best Server EVER

We originally had a reservation for 16. After most of them bailed on us,we ended up with a party of 4. It was my girl's birthday and she loves Bucca. Our server was the most awesome person ever. She made sure everything was perfect and had a really awesome attitude. I will request her every time I visit that restaurant from now on. We had a great time!

Love this place, but service was horrible this time. 45 minutes to get our salads - hour and 10 minutes until entrees. Clueless server - even drink orders and refills were a disaster.
