The food was okay, not as good as it used to be. The service was not great. Waitress never came to check of we needed drink refills or anything. Considering there were very few people in the restaurant due to COVID restrictions the service should have been much better. The priced have clearly been increased quite a bit. In my opinion they are way too expensive now and, it's not worth spending 75.00 for 2 people to eat mediocre food.

We had an outstanding baked rigatoni very late at night. The staff was very friendly, in spite of the late Sunday hour we arrived. The place inside seemed really nice (I went to the restroom). We sat outside because of the coronavirus regulations. They setup a really cute outdoor space. The wine was also good.

I’d *definitely* Recommend Buca di Beppo!

We weren’t all that impressed. 30$ for essentially a box of pasta with sauce. The pasta wasn’t great. It tasted like regular boxed pasta. There were so many great reviews. Maybe we didn’t order the right thing, but we aren’t racing to go back, that is for sure.

Special Xmas menu, Xmas special labelled as 12.99 per person. Had 2 people, they just assumed we wanted a large portion for 5 people without telling us. Seems like a dishonest practice to me. Waiter said I just assumed you wanted left overs. At least tell people that they are ordering a portion for 5. I shouldn't feel tricked by eating at your restaurant.

2 of the party developed food born illness. They sat us in the bar. Place was less than half full. The host appeared to be put out when I asked to be moved from a booth to a table else where. Took about 15 minutes and then put us in a booth in a different room. Fod was poor at best, very greasy. Chicken parmigiana was burn, but one piece was under cooked, of course this piece I shared with the wife. Never again will I go there.

Not up to par as in past experiences. Server needed to be asked for bread plates, dinner plates, more bread. One small bread loaf was given for party, needed to ask for more immediately. Left entrees on table with no dinner plates. Baked ziti was very dry.

one of our favorite places to eat, always difficult to get everyone to agree on a single dish or 2 but we are never disappointed when the food arrives. portions are massive and there is plenty to go around and to bring home. feels like eating at grandmas, decor is fun and different than all the other cookie cutter italian restaurants.

Our food took forever to come out. The stuffed shells were cold. They made us another plate which took another 30mins to come out so we just took it to go. I gave 2 stars because they did keep filling our drinks and did sing to my dad for his bday as requested. This was our 3rd time here and each time was not a good experience so I doubt will be coming back any time soon, if at all.

The food used to taste like real authentic Italian food. The chicken looks and tastes processed. The kids menu could have more kid friendly meals on there. Will not return, very disappointed in Buca.

First off, I would highly recommend joining the Buca E-Club for really good monthly coupons!!!
We have occasionally dined at this Buca di Beppo in Wyomissing, PA over the past several years, and oddly we are finding that the food quality and service have been improving with each visit. A couple of days ago, our party of 3 ordered the small spicy chicken rigatoni, and it was out-of-this-world perfection! So tasty, so garlicky, spiced just right, cooked to perfection, and absolutely delicious! The best part was bringing home leftovers (even with the "small" portion, which was quite ample) and enjoying this dish for a couple of days after eating there! It's noteworthy to tell you that we had a party at Buca this past summer to celebrate my daughter's college graduation, and every one of our guests loved the food. We're now planning on taking friends out to this Buca to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. Can't wait to eat there again!

Very poor service. Wait staff was not very friendly, did not come back and check on us, did not clear away dishes when finished and did not offer dessert...just brought us a check...20-25 minutes AFTER we were finished with our entrees. We've been to this location several times, never exceptional but "satisfied". This time... VERY DISAPPOINTED!
