Buca di Beppo - DC
I take everyone to Buca!This is my millionth time coming to Buca, but I wanted to do something special for my love and our kids (he has two and I brought my two). This was his first time and his kids' firs time--I made the reservations back in January and planned this as his Father's Day dinner. THEY LOVED IT! I think initially they were a bit skeptical, but, they were absolutely blown away and he couldn't stop saying great things about the food!
I think I definitely knocked this one out the park. THANKS BUCA! You NEVER fail me!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat service ok foodThe service was fantastic. Greeted by every staff person. Made to feel at home. The food was OK. Basic Italian fare. Would go back again with another large group since everything is made to share. Which is a fantastic plan for big groups.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat nightVery good food, some unique, drinks were a bit high priced.we sat outside , fun night. Fun atmosphere6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMonce againI love this place. The food and service were great as always. This has become a favorite spot for my family.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSaturdayThis was my first time at Bucca. Although I had a reservation it did not appear as though I needed one. The food came out relatively fast, but the drink order was much slower. In addition getting things packaged up took a while as well. Cost was decent considering the sheer amount of food. A decent place for a date, which not so much of an up tight or ritzzy feel. Will definetly head back in the future.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent opportuntiy to celebrateExcellent opportuntiy to celebrate my mother's birthday.

Food was tasty and once they took our order served quickly. We plan to go back.
They did have some big school groups that night and it was a little disorganised but they coped.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food! We sharedDelicious food!

We loved the place and the valet parking was an added bonus.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian Family RestaurantBuca has the best Italian food of any of the major restaurants. The helping sizes are huge, the food simply tastes great! Start your meal with the mixed salad that has the walnuts, green apples, craisans, and gorgonzola cheese, it is absolutely a great way to wake up the taste buds. We had the Saltimbuco for our entree with the fettucini alfredo, best I've ever had!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat servicewent with a group of 7. our server & other staff were very friendly. everyone had a good time. food was good as ususal. it was VERY hot inside. that would be my only complaint. otherwise, i was really happy with our night.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat AgainI've been here a number of times and each time I walk away satisfied.

My first experience was the new one is White Marsh and the second one was in Washington, DC and I have to say everything was exactly the same. The food was great, the service was exceptional and everything about your restaurante is great! Our waiter was very attentive, professional and funny all at the same time. He was great and you should be very proud of him as he represented your restaurant very well. Keep up the great work and good food and don't change anything I loved my experience and so did my team and we are still talking about it today.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBuca is always a stop forBuca is always a stop for us when we go to Washington as we have nothing quite like it close to home. The food is not just great but always plentiful and we leave with a pleasant memories for a long time after. The staff is always attentive and add to making the experience just wonderful. We can't wait until our next little sojourn to this destination restaurant for us.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent...I will come backExcellent...I will come back and my guest was very impressed3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed a great familyWe enjoyed a great family Easter lunch with young kids and all this past Easter Sunday.

We have been there for Thanksgiving,Christmas and now Easter.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFun placeBasic Italian. Not for Foodies. Not for Date night. Salad was good . Chicken was good. Lasagna was good. Had a very refeshing bottle of white wine from New Zealand which was perfect after a day of moving furniture. Interesting decor - too much to take in !!!! Fun place!!! Will go back for casual dinner in heart beat. Enjoy.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily StyleA really fun family style restaurant. The food is served family style so you are going to need to agree what to eat ore take home leftovers. All the food is fresh and flavorful.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, great atmosphere,Good food, great atmosphere, but price for simple Italian food.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for a Group After RaceEight of us went to Buca Di Beppo for dinner after four ran in a half marathon in the morning. No one wanted to deal with a complicate foodie meal (even though we all are foodies). We talked loud and had some great pasta served family style. We share an apple and lettuce salad, and a large order of bruchetta to start. My wife and I had chicken canneloni and while it tasted of chicken, the pieces were few. I tasted the eggplant parmagiana and it was delicious.
Bottom line: It's not fancy, but its good. Valet parking is $7, but this neighborhood doesn't have much parking so we took it.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat foodHad discovered the August Ga location on a trip so took the family here and it was great!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMwhat a fun time! good foodwhat a fun time! good food and we had a great server named danielle2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe just went for cheap Italian,We just went for cheap Italian, not expecting much. BUT - the pizza was great & the Chicken Marsala was totally yum! I said I really only wanted 1 cannoli, not 3 & the waitress only charged me for 1/3 price & packaged it 'to go'.
Would definitely go back. They make an effort to be friendly & helpful11/24/2012 12:00:00 AM
