Diner Reviews
  • "A group of twelve visited Bucc di Beppo on April 11, 2014 and we had a wonderful experience. Everyone enjoyed the food, and had a good time socializing."

  • "The restaurant has delicious food. If you can sit in the kitchen, do it! It's awesome! The only problem would be the noise"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Upon arrival, I let the hostess know I had a reservation. She checked me in and then continued to play and talk to the other people at the front desk. I thought it was very rude for the several guests waiting. The noise level was a bit much inside the restaurant- definitely not a date night kind of place. The food was great and our server was excellent."

  • "The place is well located in the West University/Greenway Plaza area, for those not familiar with it. It hosts oil & gas companies, drilling contractors, banks, schools, etc., Easy access and a great option for a group lunch. The servings are larger than other restaurants so I would not recommend it for fit for foodies but still suitable for average people. Friendly staff that can accommodate "difficult" customers. Overall a good experience."

  • "Elvis was our server and he did a great job. We were a group of 16, and he managed to take of us alone. He also was able to keep our drinks refilled, have out food out in a timely manner and kept a smile on his face!"
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Lots of pasta with no flavor and very little sauce, boring chicken, poor service and extremely loud. Antipasto salad was good!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We have been to Buca di Beppo several times in Houston and in Alpharetta, GA. This visit was our least favorite. The food was not as tasty as it had been in the past. A bit more bland. We missed the garlic mashed potatoes, which had been on the menu in the past. We had built the restaurant expectations up to our guests and were disappointed that the food did not live up to those expectations. We did love the ease of the Open Table Reservation availability."

  • "The service for a party of 13 was excellent! They took many steps in making sure that we all felt welcome and were satisfied with our food. Good overall was great! Out of 5 large orders, all were a hit with the exception of the baked ziti, was a little on the dry side. Our favorite was pasta with ala vodka sauce and sausage."

  • "Great food; our server was pleasant but busy and we waited for her to get back to us. Table was fine except right up next to another big group; we could easily hear each other's conversations"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "My family and I recently met here to celebrate my sister's birthday. The family-style portions are great for such a large group. Each couple ordered a small entree' and we all just got a bit of everything. The proscuitto stuffed chicken and the lasagna were both fabulous. We experienced great service and our food was out fairly quick. The reason I gave service 3 stars is our server mixed up our tickets and it was a little complicated to get it worked out. All in all it was a great experience and we will definitely be back."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We were celebrating my sons birthday. There was a table very close to us that was celebrating too and they were very loud. we could barely hear ourselves talk. They took a lot of the waiters attention as there were a lot of them and they were younger. Too many to be in that area and squished at their table to be honest. Otherwise I would have rated higher. It's a great place for groups though and food is good."

  • "I have dined with Buca for each anniversary my wife and I have shared in the past 8 years. This was the first time we ever arrived late for our reservation. The late/non-reservation seating was terrible. There were 3 tables squeezed into a space where usually one large table would be. There was not much room to feel comfortable and it made speaking a little awkward. The food was great as usual but the small table space was frustrating. I recommend, on special occasions, that you only go when you have a reservation so that you can truly enjoy your time there."

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Bucca for Valentine's day and we both enjoyed it. The food was delicious and the art covering the walls was very interesting to look at and it added to the whole vibe of the restaurant. The service was excellent too! Our only issue was the loud group of teens sitting behind us. I think they should have been sat somewhere else, as they were disrupting other couples who were trying to enjoy a romantic evening out."

  • "My wife and I made a reservation prior to attending a concert. We were not seated for a half an hour after reservation time. We nearly walked across the parking lot to Pei Wei. Once seated, the waiter was a little slow on our drink order. When the food arrived it was marginally good. Another large party arrived at a table behind us. After taking their orders, the waiter piled the menus on the bench seat beside me and left them there. Waiter brought us our check before we finished eating or ordering coffee and dessert. We still tipped 20%, but the place was noisy, loud, and stuffy (hot). Will not be going back."

  • "Four entree's tried and all were wonderful (cannelloni especially good). Minestrone soup quite flat, salad so-so and Italian Cream Cake not a true Italian Cream Cake."

  • "Fried calamari, linguine frutti di mare and tiramisu are very good!"
    Dined on 1/15/2014
  • "We have enjoyed Buca's all over the country and the service this evening was HORRIBLE. We treated friends to enjoy our special place and did not appreciate being served by a trainee. Yes, people have to learn but not on my dollar. Screwed most everything up and did not even know what a Shirley Temple was. Such a disruption by his going back and forth. Train your people better before putting them on the floor!!! It will be a long time before we return to this particular establishment."

  • "was there Saturday to have a birthday dinner with family. Service sucked they had an attitude not once did they come check on us. Pasta was dried they gave me the wrong order. my friend told the waiter it was my birthday and he looked at her crazy."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "We had a number of family members in town and wanted all to get together for a Christmas Dinner. Out party consisted of fourteen people. We were seated on time and actually had a nice area to ourselves. A small alcove appropriately named 'The Pope Room'. One large circular table with a lazy Susan. We decided that each family would select one to two meals. Since this is prepared family style there was more than sufficient food and all tasted very good. The lazy Susan allowed all the dishes to be passed around for all to select and enjoy. Service and food delivery was prompt and all food was service hot even though we had a large party. Recommend this for families and groups. This would not work well for just a couple date - too much food."

  • "The food is decent and comes out in a timely manner. However, on the night of my visit the service suffered majorly and because of that I will probably never go back. It just went from bad (server didn't put in half of what was ordered so half of the table got to eat while the other half just got to stare) to even worse (server began ignoring us, stopped refilling beverages, and started blaming his manager). Then to top it all off the server charged us wrong, which took forever to fix. I was most disappointed that no one tried to fix the situation. Also, every time I have visited this restaurant, it is extremely noisy so don't try to have a meeting here unless you want to yell at the person sitting next to you."
