They were obviously short staffed. Our waiter was literally running from table to table, but the food took forever. When we finally got it, nothing tasted good. This wasn't our first trip to that location, but it will probably be the last until staffing and quality improve.

Took 7 people for dinner for a yearly Birthday/holiday dinner. We had the apple walnut salad to start, salad was limp and seamed old. Next we ordered the spicy chicken rigatoni . It was not spicy and had barely any chicken, it was laughable actually. We needed to wipe plates off before putting food on them. Our waitress, who under the conditions did well, told us only her and three other people were working in the entire restaurant. In my opinion don't open then if the food and atmosphere can't be properly done. The prices were still normal, which are high. Full price for a substandard experience and poorly done food.
I contacted Buca with my concerns and expectations and never heard from them.

I’ve visited this venue many times before and this recent experience was a bit off. The food wasn’t prepared to its usual perfection so I was disappointed. I’m writing it off as a fluke and I’ll be going back soon.

Poor service, understaffed, and poor food. Restaurant didn’t have a bartender during my visit so my area’s waitress was doing orders, delivering food and drinks. This caused her to be very slow and missing for long periods of time. She had no problem telling another group that was waiting that they were understaffed but didn’t come to our table to relay the news. Our drinks didn’t taste like they had any alcohol and our garlic bread was barely cooked. More than an hour after arriving, our food still hadn’t come. We paid for what we had gotten so far and saw that the front of the restaurant had many more groups that came in after us and already had their food

Understandably the place, like many others, was short staffed, but the waitress did her best. The food was overpriced for what you get , but probably should be expected from a chain whose goal is to siphon money from people who are too lazy to cook, like me- Limoncello is a far better option and has chefs that care. Specifically, the chicken parm is clearly deep fried (which makes it yummy) but two of the pieces were burnt, then hidden in the middle under loads of cheese.

The floors/environment actually had a dirty mop odor and it just did not smell clean. Waitress was great, drinks were great. Food was good but not great. Expensive for what it was.

Waiter didn’t really help us in understanding how much food was with the large. The large portion feeds 6-8 if not more and there was only 4 of us. Ordered two large and ended up with a bunch of leftovers but some guidance would’ve been appreciated. Overall good food and good value.

I keep going back because I love the food and the service. Going to this venue in Exton is a bit challenging due to the distance from my home. In the past there were 2 locations near me that I frequented. What keeps me coming back and driving long distances is the consistently tasty and well prepared food. My all time favorite is the fried mozzarella and chicken Parmesan. My wife loves the salad and eggplant Parmesan. We’re hooked, just looking for a shorter drive to these excellent meals. Keep on cooking perfection Buca Di Beppo!!

We had a coupon for a free dessert cake from the cake boss so we decided to have dinner. We were the only ones there so yes it was not noisy at all but there was really very little ambience. Our server was very good and our entrées which was the stuff prosciutto chicken with a side of sausage and peppers was very good. We took home the desert and defrosted it and the cake was horrible. Very disappointed for a cake box cake that was worse than any grocery store cake we’ve ever had. But the food from Buca di Beppo was very good
