  • "Great place with a group or your family. We had a surprise dinner for our son and it is fun watching everyone order and share the family-style dishes. The whole experience encourages conversation, laughs, etc. It is an enjoyable evening and always has been for our family. PLEASE keep the candelabras used for the birthday guest."

  • "I have been to Buca several times and I appreciate the quality of the food and that it is consistent each time. I have trouble ordering new items from the menu becuase the stuffed chicken and side of Alfredo is so good. The portions are huge and everything is served family style. Dinner for two you can split a small dish just fine."

  • "3 adults and 3 kids. Appetizer cheese bread took 20 min or more. Other tables received baskets of bread w/olive oil, we had to ask for it. Entrees approx a half hour after the appetizer. dessert Took at least another 20-25 min for the sundae. Bill arrived, noticed we were charged $2.99 per child's drink, menu states drinks are included w/meal. child's meal was reduced $1.70 before they added $2.99. Bill was changed -another 15 min, and he brought the credit card slips back, it was $6.00 more than the prior total. Spoke to manager, she said since there were so many issues dessert was free. BUT, AGAIN, their math confuses me, as dessert was $12.95, but she deducted $8.00. Won't go again. Food was ok Maggianos, I will be back!"

  • "Food was good. Server was terrible. As soon as we sat down he said "we are really busy so let's get the ball rolling. What would you like"? We hadn't' t even read the menu yet! No drink refills and actually Sat down 2 times at guests tables. Was obnoxious. Needs training and manners."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had a 2pm reservation and were not seated until "it is closer to 2pm." At 2:10 we get seated next to a family whose children were crying and pushing up against the booth that we were seated next to. A HOUR LATER @ 3:15 our food arrives. This place is Not worth the cost or the time to eat here."

  • "Best Ceasar salad ever!! The pizza was great! Yummy toppings and the crust was crisp and wonderful!"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "A factor in my rating was the service, although the waiter was nice & friendly he was not attentive to our party of 10. I found that he did not come around enough to ask if we needed anything. Plates were left on the table long after they should have been removed. Bread baskets did not get filled, we had to ask, we were never offered any parmesan cheese for our meals, little things yes but on previous visits the service was up to par so I expected the same. My husband got fed up with waiting for our server to come around and got up and went looking for someone to refill his drink. The wait time for our food was very long but the food was delicious, so I can forgive that."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "We have dined at several of the Buca location's - San Diego, Pittsburgh and now Austin. The food was great. We had a huge green salad and spaghetti with meat balls. Both great. Our server - not sure if his name was spelled Erin or Aaron, but he was a super nice guy and his service was excellent. "

  • "A group of us went here for a Sunday dinner / baby shower! My coworker is new to austin, so I wanted to take her somewhere nice. just my luck everything went very wrong.. Worst service I have ever had! I felt so bad that her baby shower end up the way it did. We had to get up to pour our own water! Also pour our own dipping oil for our bread! Unbelievable!!! Asked for bread over and over! Our server was very rude and short with us! Manager came over and gave us a discount and apologize. Very nice manager and food was good. "

  • "I had my 30th birthday dinner here and it was great. Five years later on my 35th birthday, dinner was a huge disappointment. Food was average at best and the service was terrible. Everything took forever, including drinks and refills. Our waiter was nowhere to be found most of the evening, didn't even ask if we wanted dessert, he even forgot it was my birthday until after we had already paid our tab. After dinner, we sat at the bar for a couple of drinks. The bartender kept disappearing for long periods of time. At one point, another staff member went behind the bar and we asked if we could order a drink from him. He took our drink orders, then laughed, said he couldn't make us drinks, and just walked off. Will not be going back!"

  • "Chaos at 7 on Saturday night. We were seated late and the front desk was overwhelmed. The appetizers and main courses arrived together and we sent back the entrees. They were decent about that and gave us a glass of wine on the house. Service was somewhat spotty as the place was very busy. We've eaten there before and found service to be somewhat lackadaisical but this was more confused than usual. The food was ok, as expected, a red sauce Italian without inspiration but filling. Had a good time with my friends anyway."

  • "my son graduated and we went over right after ceromony I had reservations however our waiter was rude and unattentive really ruined the dinner "

  • "Buca is always a good place for a family get together on a special occasion or celebration. It is fun to look at all the pictures on the walls."

  • "We celebrated Mother's Day and it was fun, upbeat, and superb because of our waiter Michael. He was very polite and professional. He made our special day extra special!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "This place is for when you have tons of money to blow because it's insanely overpriced. You have to buy pasta separate from your entrée which is already $30 plus $20 extra on pasta which should come with in my opinion. The salads are phenomenal and our server was fantastic. The quality of the food is five star, very good. The noise level is one star. I went for Mother's Day and it was so loud I could hardly hear those at my own table. The whole travel through the kitchen to get to my table situation is horrible!!! And the one dining table in the kitchen.... I would hate to be seated there on display with the kitchen noise. The quality of food is good enough to return, perhaps not on a holiday and when I have extra cash. "

    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I chose Buca for the family-style dining; we had 8 people 3 of which were children. We ordered the large sizes of the entrees which is supposed to feed 10 but the amount of food each person could get was very little. I might as well have gone to a regular restaurant like Macaroni Grill and had each person order what they wanted and have enough to probably have leftovers for the same of amount of money we spent. Quite disappointed."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food is decent but good grief, $25 for 4 chicken breast and that doesn't even include pasta? Our bill was almost $100 for two small family entrees, garlic bread & roasted potatoes. We only come here for Mother's Day otherwise we wouldn't come here at all because it's extremely pricey. On line Reservations was quick and simple. "

  • "BdB did a nice job on our graduation luncheon...especially when graduation let out 45 minutes earlier than we had expected. They were very gracious and accommodated us early!"
    Dined on 5/3/2014
  • "The minute we walked in, the staff treated us like family. The manager came by several times to make sure everything was fine. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. We have been to the restaurant once before for a birthday, so we knew the routine. However, the portions were even bigger than expected. The lasagna was huge. The food was good and fresh. And the dessert! Who wouldn't like a sundae big enough for a family of 7 to share. We will be returning. Can't wait to try a couple of different dishes."

  • "Rude hostess would not seat us at 1:28 because the reservation was for 1:30 pm. EXTREMELY HIGH PRICING - $20 for piece of chicken, with no sides. $10 for small side of broccoli. Seafood was aweful. Our food was BAD. Waiter was too lazy to run multiple checks. Made all 20 people writE what they had on the back of a ticket. This took forever! WE WILL NEVER GO TO BUCCA DI BEPPO AGAIN. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "Have to say Buca is an interesting place - a different concept for menu "strategy," numerous small rooms that are overly decorated with photos that are just off a little bit, they sort of had a carnival side show feel to them. Our group was bunched up real tightly and the place is loud. There's even a booth located in the kitchen that customers parade by to get to their own table, glad we weren't sitting there. It's all a bit manufactured, and expensive. But we did have a very good waiter and the food was good. Not special, but good. But I'll stick to the places I know that are smaller and more authentic. I suppose Buca is the Disney version of Italian restaurants and I'm not inclined to return."
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "We've been to Buca do Beppo twice and both times the food was really good and served "family style" in portions large enough for at least two. The price is a bit high for regular visits but OK for special occasions. Unfortunately the noise level has been very high on both visits. It is so noisy, in fact, that it's difficult to have a conversation at lower than loud volume. This survey terms it "energetic", I call it loud. If you are looking for really tasty Italian but not a quiet atmosphere, Buca may be your place."
