Diner Reviews
  • "Dined at the DC Buca di Beppo April 5. Despite two busloads of people preceding us in being seated the experience was enjoyable it's a bit noisy but it's a classic family-style Italian experience and the food is Surprisingly good for such a big operation. Good for large groups and when you don't mind having a boisterous crowded family atmosphere."

  • "I have always loved Buca, when you walk in it feels like you are walking into your family's house and they welcome you with open arms. The Family style portions add to the welcoming feel and the food is excellent. IMHO Buca is the BEST Italian "chain" restaurant around. Better than Olive Garden, Carrabbas, Macaroni Grill, That's Amore, the entire lot of them! I made a reservation about a half hour before we arrived and when we got there 2 busloads of tourists had just shown up and were walking in, it didn't matter, we were seated almost right away. Great service, great food, great time!"

  • "Buca di Beppo was a great pick for our group after a long day of conference sessions. It was a good place for us to unwind and it was within walking distance from the Washington Hilton. Good food; great atmosphere. I liked that we were able to make reservations through the Open table app."

  • "Went to the restaurant with a group from work and it was a great experience. The food is served family style so we each had a blast trying the various dishes. We also struck up conversation with some individuals at an adjacent table that added to the fun. I would most certainly recommend this restaurant for a group!"

  • "Loved this spot. Nothing bad to say about the service or the food. Both were excellent. The menu selection was fabulous. I thought the prices were a little on the high side but not exorbitantly so. You absolutely paid for what you got though. I would for sure go back there again."

  • "Sat at the Pope's table with a group of 18 for a birthday celebration. Had a fantastic time. The group in the room next to us was way too loud; I'm glad they left after a short while."

  • "I so enjoyed an evening out with friends. I loved the family style dining and generous portions. It's not eating at home, but pretty close to it. And the dessert sunday...wow...HUGE!!!"

  • "This was such a wonderful experience with great food good company that we went back to the restaurant twice during our stay. We come to this restaurant every time we are in Washing D.C. and half a great time. The Manager and the staff where wonderful, thoughtful and very accommodating."

  • "The staff were courteous but the food was mediocre at best for Italian food. Carmine's delivers better italian food. Ok for school bus loads of kids, which about 3 bus loads piled in while we were there. My daughter commented she stopped there in her last high school trip."

  • "Food was great and a lot of it had to take doggy bags. Price were a little high. Could not use the the 4 for 4 for $40 coupon that brought me there -too limited . So you may lose business with some customers who feel the coupon doesnt work."

  • "This is a wonderful place for a big group of people to get together to celebrate a special event. If you are after a quiet romantic evening, then this is not the place for you. It did quieten down around 10. A lot of fun, a great vibe, lots of noise, laughter, singing and the staff really got into it. Really huge portions so plenty to share around."

  • "I made reservations ahead because that's what we do with 3 under 5 years old. It makes things run smoothly. We loved the restaurant.We had the mini meatballs for our appetizer. They were delicious. We also got the kids Mac n cheese and kids spaghetti and meatballs. Those were also tasty and tasted fresh and not boxed or frozen. We he the chicken with prosciutto and linguine... It was delicious! My spouse and I shared it. It was enough to take leftovers home. Our waiter was attentive, polite, informed and fast! Our food got to us in a timely manner and piping hot like it should be. It was overall a wonderful experience from a high end chain restaurant."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The trouble with this place is the service. The food is OK, but very inconsistent. No one there has a command of the English language any more and become annoyed when you ask then to repeat something because you didn't understand them. The tour and explanation at the beginning of dinner was totally lost on us this time, as the young lady, who was very nice, barely spoke English and was inaudible."

  • "Our dining experience began with a room full of middle school students who were extremely rude and loud. It was a wonderful teaching experience for my young children. The resturant staff apologized regularly and these one half of our meal was quiet and fun on valentines day"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This service was horrible. Took us over 2 hours even though we ordered within 15 minutes of sitting. We never got our wine and had to ask for plates after our food had already arrived. Ended up getting our own plates because it took so long."

  • "Time and time again, Buca di Beppo is our family's choice for special occasion celebrations and anytime we're in the mood for really good Italian food. Buca's staff is friendly and very attentive to our needs. We've been back so many times that the staff recognizes us, celebrates with us and treats us like family. Buca never disappoints! The food is awesome and the staff is awesome."

  • "I was blown away by how large the restaurant was! And it has sections for different atmospheres (party, family, romantic, etc.) The food portions are HUGE and worth every dollar! The staff and customer service are outstanding, and I can't wait to go back!"

  • "We dined here on Valentine's Day. We had our 4 year old twins with us and the large booth was perfect. Nothing fussy about the food. It was good spaghetti and antipasta. Decor is kitschy but it made the atmosphere. Attentive waiter but not overbearing. Enjoyable family night out."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I went to Buca with my girlfriend for a date not knowing what I would find. I wanted to go to an Italian restaurant that wouldn't kill my wallet. While it wasn't as romantic as I would've liked, it was fun and entertaining. The portions were huge, and the prices were great for the amount of food you get. I could see myself coming back in the future, but not for a date. It has more of a family kind of feel to it."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time! The food was delicious as usual and the drinks were fabulous. What we really noticed was the incredible level of service. The staff was very attentive to us and went the extra mile on multiple occasions-down to closing the door directly in front of us to prevent drafts and holding on to our table even though I was running late. The sangria was delicious and the baked ziti was divine-very creamy. We'll definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This place is fun and quirky if you're into the chain restaurant experience, but after the initial thrill of seeing the themed dining areas and the Pope Room, everything else is lacking in originality. We were greeted at the door by our host, who seemed as though he had better things to do than welcome early afternoon diners. The food was good enough, and the service acceptable, but nothing about this place was worth the distance many folks in our group had traveled, and it certainly wasn't worth what the meal ultimately cost."

  • "and again.....you walk in and you feel like family. every wait staff has a smile on and they seem to be genuinely happy to serve you. managers in view, making sure things are running smoothly. food servings ample and delicious. fresh ingredients are obvious. no rush to move on. desserts also made on location. just an overall great experience."

  • "The service was great and the food was excellent. I like this place because the food has a "homemade taste" and reminds me of my grandma's cooking."

  • "My family and I enjoyed our recent Buca experience. With the exception of a veal dish (a little blah, chewy and not tender), we enjoyed other delicious entrees. The servers offered excellent service and attention to my guests. They smiled, cared, and met our every request. I definitely will return with guests. I consider Buca one of my favorite family-friendly spots."

  • "My brother and his family visited from PA this weekend. They have 4 young children (10 y/o and younger). I made a reservation (for 10) at B di B through Open Table. The restaurant was very accommodating when I asked to delay the reservation time by 30 minutes. Our table was ready when we arrived. The service was good. The waiter was very accommodating when I asked to send the first bottle of wine back after he'd poured four glasses. He brought a second bottle and only charged us for two glasses of the first one. We were there for almost two hours, so the kids were getting a little restless near the end of the night. The staff let the kids wander a bit and didn't complain."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We made a reservation a week in advance, but when we arrived they told us that they had overbooked and our table needed to be used for another party soon after our reservation. We would have been happy to finish on time, but they reminded us that we needed to hurry up MULTIPLE times and staff hovered over our table during the meal to make sure we were out early. It was not relaxing or enjoyable. It was NOT our fault they overbooked, and it made for a very awkward dinner party. In fact, we even overheard the staff complaining to each other that we were "still there". Good food, but keep in mind that making a reservation does not mean much."

  • "Service was excellent!! Staff catered to our needs, we had an infant and a 3 year old in our group of 11. Would return! ESpecially enjoyed the seafood linguine and chicken glorioso! Staff sung for wedding anniversary that was celebrated. Had an early Saturday eve supper, hence the quiet environment."
