Came here for my birthday dinner. Server was fantastic.. But the chef/cooks need to get it together. 1st we ordered a large lasagna...server came back they don't have no more large. We settled for a small and another dish Chicken Carbonara. This dish came to the table with NO chicken. Go figure? Server took back to have chicken added😨
Happy birthday to me!🎈

eeeh

I came in today with some friends we ordered the Chicken Parmigiana, Chicken Limone, and the soup and salad. The soup was lukewarm and not that great, the salad was also really plain. The Chicken Parmigiana was delicious but the pasta was cold also. I would not come back here again the food was so-so and the price was fair we spent only $30.00.

I know this a chain restaurant, but and that is a big but

the food is wonderful. Why, well the apple gorgonzola salad is abfab, the penne arriabiatta, or however you spell the spicey sausage and penne dish is-well-spice is nice- and pretty darn good, too. the service is so-so, which is typical nowadays, but who cares as long as they bring the food in a reasonable amount of time and don't interrupt you every few minutes asking if it's any good. I've eaten here before, don't remember what I had, but remember being it good enough for me to come back.

I have'nt found a bad item on the menu, this is the place for large groups, loud enviorment

Fun place , the staff was friendly and helpful. Never had to wait for anything, prompt service. Not the place for romantic meals one on one conversation

Awesome gotta get the kitchen table

As a very very picky consumer, I have to tell you that I was so impressed with our experience. I read online that you could sit in the kitchen. I made reservations for that table, and we had a blast. You literally sit in the kitchen, and get to watch the chefs at work. Everyone there was so helpful and courteous. The food was great and our server was the bomb. I read some luke warm reviews about noise and how it's not a dating enviroment. It is a family style restaurant. Ask for the kitchen table, you won't be sorry. Also, go online and download FREE coupons for either dessert or an appetizer. I enjoyed Buca immensly, and hope you do too.

Great food, Great Service

We were overwelmed upon entering the lobby decorated with pictures that made us laugh and a host staff that gretted us immediately with a hello and a smile. We were seated promptly with no reservation and our server clearly explained the concept and ideas behind the restaurant and food. Rob was extremely knowledagble and humerous and made several suggestions including the Chicken Saltimboca (tender,tasty, and delcious), Linguinni with a white clam sauce (gret match with the chicken it was very good with a hint of red pepper spice) and the green beans (phenomanal). We had a great meal and a wonderful time thanks to our server and the rest of the staff.

Good Food!

the portions here is totally worth your money. the food is great 4 outta five times I've been there. though it does take a while for a table but I think the food is worth the wait and while you're at it go the bar and hang out with your crowd.

Sacramento Italian?

I see it as unfortunate that this is what some people consider good Italian food. Once you have good Italian, you can never go back...This restaurant is just another get them in and get them out kind of place. Fine if that is what you like, however if you are looking for a savory culinary experience, skip this restaurant!

Family style is not romantic

If it is family style it is not romantic. This is a good spot and definitely a good value but I would NEVER go there on a romantic date!

Only for the many

The best aspect of this restaurant is the ability to accommodate a large crowd. If this is not your goal, Buca is not the place for you. If you only need a table for two, don't waste your time in line.

Long wait

Buca Di Beppo serves is acceptable. However, be prepare to wait for a table. I made reservation at 7:00 p.m on a Saturaday but did not get seated til 8:15 p.m. Because I patiently waited for 90 mintues, the Manager gave me a free appetizer. The food is portion is very big (family style).
