Very Good – The appetizers were just ok. I've had better. But the main dishes were superb! Huge portions, service was excellent. Will defiantly go back.
The WORST service – This genius of a waitress was unfriendly, forgetful, and flat out incompetent. She brought us salad plates which we sat in front of us, then never brought any salad. Then she came back 10 minutes later and collected the unused plates?? She took at least 10 minutes to bring our drinks, and then forgot to put our order in completly! Three other tables got their food before us even though we were there first. I asked for a lemon for my water 3 times, I got a whole bowl of lemons after dinner was over? We didn't get the bread we ordered and not once durring dinner were we asked if everything was ok or if we needed anything else..she never asked if we wanted dessert at the end of the meal either. After it was all over she said "let me box up that food for you", took the food and never came back! After 15 minutes we finally just got up and walked out..on our way put the door we saw her and she said "have a good night" instead of oh my god I forgot to bring your food I'm so sorry" What a joke! This was probably the worst service I've had in recent memory...thanks for a crappy Mother's Day dinner Tanica!
Used to be the best Italian rest. in LV, but now owned by Planet Hollywood, and it's as fake as hollywood! – This is my third time to Buca but I will never return. I always loved their true traditional Italian fare, with authentic tasting marinara, from a old family recipe. That was why I went there, to have real Italian food, not the cardboard imitation the chain restaurants make. Well, its happened, Buca was sold out to the establishment who came in and thought they could do it better. The youngsters always think they can do it better than Grandma, well, guess what folks? You simply cannot will not ever beat Grandma's marinara sauce, the sauce that Buca used to have. I could tell right away when I tasted their tasteless sauce on a bunch of worthless pasta. It was a total waste of energy to go there, and a waste of time and money. I will never return, as for me . . . Buca is no more. Planet Hollywood, the new owners (did I mention that?), has once again turned a perfectly good restaurant into garbage. If you're not used to real actually good spicy and tasty Italian food, with real garlic and real basil and oregano, you'll probably be satisfied. If you are . . . don't go there thinking you will get anything close to what Mom used to make, just don't go there at all. My family sure won't, and that was the unanimous decision around our 10 person party table, all family members. We're Italian and we used to feel at home there, but we don't anymore. Buca is long gone with the old family that owned it, and will soon just have the reputation of The Olive Garden. If you like the Olive Garden you will love it here, but if your taste of Itaian food is more authentic then you won't anymore. We were thoroughly disappointed. So sad to see and taste. Sorry but I have to say, all you shirts that came into that kitchen and said you could do it better with your fancy chefs, have more attitude than skills, because your food is terrible.
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant. – In Short
Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
Excellent eatery – I throughly enjoy this establishment everytime I eat there; the portions are huge, the food is good and the prices are affordable. I just wish one was closer to my house.

The right way to eat Italian – Fabulous family-style dinning experience. Great food at good prices. Perfect for a group of 6 or more!
great italian – be ready to share because the portions are family style and very much worth it! Make reservations as the wait sometimes is long
Great gathering – my friend hosted a party for 20+ and it was a great night of fun and food. The portions were priced well for thier sizes. Service was great. No one ran out of drinks. Food was hot. Everyone had a good time.
Avoid this Restaurant – I went to Buca di Beppo for my daughters birthday and it was horrible. The serve was something I would receive at a cheaper restaurant, better serve at Blueberry Hills coffee shop. The food did not come out with all the other items, so we eating one item at a time. The waiter was too busy to take care of us, the portions are small, and Overall, I would recommend you don't try any of the Buca di Beppo, I ate at the other one on Lake Mead and it was just as bad. The managers need to be a little bit more aware of what is going on and how the customers are being treated. Considering they offer family dinners, they can't handle large parties well. Good luck if you go with a large party, more then 4 you will be very disappointed. The best part was I told them when we sat down that it was my daughter's birthday, they forgot and I had to remind them. Nevertheless, it was not cheap or worth my money.
