Incredible Italian Food! – Great food, good service, fun atmosphere for large parties! Awesome garlic bread!
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).
Skip It – Consistently poor food in a restaraunt so noisy you can't talk to anyone at your table.
Worst veal marsala I have ever had
It's OK once. – The atmosphere is interesting; 50's Italian-American kitsch. The service was very good. All of us were welcomed including my 5 and 2 year old.
Problem is, the food isn't very good. Sure you get lots of it, but one could easly open a can of marinara and boil a pound of spagetti at home. We ordered spagetti, eggplant parmesan and a pizza. The total came to $60+ after all was said and done. We had plenty of leftovers but it didn't seem much of a bargain nevertheless. It was fun once, but we don't need to go again.
Not Romantic! – For a family style dinner with family and friends, this is the place to be. But for a romantic dinner for two? No way! With all the loud noise and the families with small children, this does not make a romantic place. But if you just want a good meal with friends or family, then this is a fine place to dine.
Most enjoyable and delicious... – My husband and I have been to Buca 5 or 6 times. Every time, we've had the best Italian food ever! I used to eat in Little Italy (in New York) often and loved the food. I always referred to Little Italy as "the best Italian Food in the USA". Then we went to Buca... WOW! Absolutely mouth watering! Incredible recipes to tempt the most experienced pallette. The atmosphere is such that you can bring the entire three generations of family and feel quite at home. It's lively atmosphere and service personalities can only add to the already charming experience. The bathroom has a life of it's own, too (playing an 'Only Italian' radio station.)
Simply the best ever!
A bit pricey, but worth every pennie!
