  • "The food was great and the service very good. Loved the family style eating."

  • "It was great to see that big parties do not suffer with bad service or delayed food."

  • "It was a great experience to have the host walk us THRU the entire restaurant before we were seated at our table. The Kitchen was super clean and this was at 515pm on a Monday. The entire restaurant has a great display of vintage photos, and other items, the setting is great and not very bright or not dark, enough light to read about the stories on the walls. The meals were delicious and to believe a small order is for 2 people, only if you bought are very hungry. We had 2 smalls because I wanted to try to different plates, I always try the Lasagna FIRST at any Italian Restaurant, it is my favorite, that tells the story to me. Looking forward to next time, goodbye Olive Garden. HOORAY BUCA DI BEPPO, Very Glad I finally visited."

  • "The full review I posted on yelp and google. Basically every aspect of our meal and service were of the lowest standard. This place used to be a nice place to go - I will never give this chain another chance."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "The spaghetti tasted like it had been sitting for a long time in water. The meatball were bland. I had heard that Buca's served good food and for the price it should be. I was very disappointed in the food. The waiter was very nice but inexperienced, she got our credit cards mixed up twice. She tried hard, did the best she good, I have no complaints about her."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Biggest thing to remember is the food is served family style. We too a group of 8 ans ordered 5 meals...everyone of us had leftovers for 1-2 days! Make sure you try the pasta basiica, spaghetti and meatballs, and my personal favorite...chicken parmesan."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "This was my first visit and we found exactly what I was hoping for! I booked a table for a group of teachers and we couldn't have picked a more friendly, delicious experience. I can't wait to take my family!"

  • "I went here first with my co-workers and loved it, so I decided to take my family and they enjoyed the food."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Our most recent trip to Buca Di Beppo was for my wife's birthday. There were over 10 of us and Buca did a great job with a group our size. The food was great and it was a great time talking and having fun. It was fun to serve everything family style. It was a great way to get everyone talking."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I had heard so many great things and I loved the ability to make reservations online. However the food was over spiced in undercooked pasta. The family style made me believe there would be a large portion served, but was disappointed at the small amount of actual food. The pasta we ordered was smothered in so much tomatoe sauce that we had to dig to find the pasta and it just wasn't enough for two let alone 4-6 our waitress said it would feed. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Everything was great, except for the fact that I had added special remarks, when making my reservation on-line. We had a group of 9, and I had asked to be seated in the "Pope Room". Upon arrival, we were advised that the restaurant does not read or see those remarks. If this is the case - then omit this from the process."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Ever since Buca's started offering the apple Gorgonzola salad, we have been getting it, and it was as good as ever. We were dining with another couple, so ordered a small salad, small seafood linguine, and small prosciutto-stuffed chicken. All were mouth-watering. Had a little more food than we needed, so took some home. We dined "fashionably late," having gone to a late afternoon movie first. We arrived at Buca's about 15 minutes before our 7:45 reservation time, but were handled efficiently and shown to a table within about a minute (I think they had to figure out a change in seating areas and waiters). The ambient noise was subdued and we were easily able to carry on a conversation in normal speaking tones, something we cherish."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "While it was an interesting experience, if I had a choice then I would have not chosen to eat in the kitchen. Partially because it is noisy and I felt like I smelled like spices and food especially when the stove had a grease fire. "
    Dined on 4/21/2014
  • "This place is really only good for large groups of people with healthy appetites. The pizza is excellent, the service is quick and for a group of about ten people, request the Pope Room. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The visit started with a man taking us on a long walk through the building, talking to my wife who was closest to him as our son and I trailed behind. I couldn't hear what he was saying, so I had no idea what was going on. After we sat down, I was told we were getting a tour of the restaurant. It would have been nice if the man had told all of us what we were about to do and had spoken loudly enough that I could hear him along the way. If I'd known what was going on, I would have paid more attention to my surroundings. The waiter was too chipper and chatty. The table was stuck off in a corner near a bar (I like to be around people; we made reservations). The food (baked ziti) was so-so. All in all, it wasn't worth the price. "

  • "Took our family here Easter weekend and had a great time. The food was great, and the service was quick and professional. The only thing was our waiter was a bit annoying."

  • "Our volleyball team wanted to eat together and no one would take our reservation but buca. They had great service and got us in to eat quickly after making reservation."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "I invited 4 of my friends for a birthday dinner and it was fantastic! a little loud but overall the food was great and our waiter was very polite & helpful! I used a group coupon here in addition to ordering a large buca pizza and my total was less than 70 bucks for 5 people. Also, the serving sizes were more than enough for all of us, I went home with leftovers!!"
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "It was a fun place to go with good food and good service. The chicken parmasean wasn't the best i've had, but the appetizers were pretty good."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "We went to Buca for family dinner. I've had several coupons for Buca, but had never gone. Although some might like the atmosphere, it was too 'cluttered' for me. The food was ok, but it wasn't anything to write home about. Our waitress wasn't very warm, just rushed throughout dinner service. Would I go back...no I don't believe so. Too many other places in Dallas To choose from."

  • "The staff that night was very cordial and friendly. They made us feel right at home. The pope room was fantastic."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "I reserved the Pope tomm for my sister's bachelorette party and it was excactly what we needed!!! It is private enough to have good conversation and the wait staff even helped to serve our party favors."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The wait staff does an excellent job of helping choose the appropriate amount of food as very large portions are served family style. Apple gorgonzola salad was great. Lasagne wonderful. We were there to celebrate a 5-year-old's birthday with his family and grandparents. To his delight at the end of the meal, the staff brought a very tall candlestick with a red candle, placed it on the table in front of him and sang their birthday song. The staff gave him a birthday ice cream dessert."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Overall good food. Usually have good service, but this time around we had a server who seemed to want to challenge himself by memorizing 3 tables worth of orders. Guess what? He screwed ours up twice then decided to bill us for each one of his screw ups. They need to make sure all servers are writing down orders to lessen the error rate."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had a great time! Service was fantastic and the food was great. Wonderful place for our large group to unwind and blow off some energy with a wide choice of superb food! A new team tradition has begun!"
    Dined on 3/6/2014
  • "As always, portions are ridiculously huge and I have yet to eat here without having to take something home. We were seated relatively close to our reservation time, but who can guess perfectly on a busy Saturday night? Our waiter was very polite and attentive. Food was amazing as always. Truthfully, my only complaint (which really isn't a complaint) is that their acoustics inside are such that if the place is packed, you can barely have conversation across the table. I would suggest some foam panels on the ceiling that could also be decorative to eat some of the sound. Other than that, this place is awesome and I would eat there three times a day if I thought I could get away with it. ;-)"

  • "I made reservation in advance for 8 people, yet when we got there our table was only set for 6 people. They host then decided to squeeze in 2 extra seats on an already crowded table. I requested her to check whether we could move to a bigger table, which she said she would do. She never returned with any feedback, so we ended up sitting at the crammed up table. The server suggested the house margaritas, but failed to mention that they are $15 each - which in my opinion is a bit overpriced. The food was good, but it's not cheap."
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Our family includes a grandmother, mother, father, 3 boys (15,12 and 8) and 2 girls (8 and 6). Buca is made for us - generous portions, options that fit many tastes from complex (prosciutto stuffed chicken) to basic (spaghetti and meat balls). The wait staff is invariably helpful and with fun attitudes. We always have a great time, and I highly recommend it."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Well my experience in Bucca was great. I loved their food, service and in general everything! It was a great place to go for a beautiful romantic dinner or if you are on the mood for a group dinner. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone I know. The only reason I didn't give the service 5 stars is because the waitress was new and she didn't know a lot of the questions I asked. If I had gotten a more experience waiter like one of the gentlemen like Michael which was one of the other waiters that took care of us at the end.This waiter did an outstanding job he made us feel like we were the only customers. Which is awesome!!! I will definitely will go back to this place again and request this waiter to wait on us again."

  • "This was our first time to experience the restaurant, and I am glad that I made reservations. The food was awesome, the atmosphere was awesome, all the staff were very helpful and respectful. We received our food on time our drinks were very good. My kids had a great time as well. I will make plans to come back with a bunch of our friends. I will recommend this restaurant to many of my friends. Thanks for a wonderful time Buca Di Beppo!!!!!!!"

  • "82 year old birthday for mother, with young grandson, and were sat in the BAR! We had a reservation ! No bread brought, food bland, NO DESSERT EVEN OFFERED for said birthday! Long wait for tea refills @2.99 ea. and 15 minute wait for the bill. We won't be back."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "First time back to Buca in a couple of years and it seems the food quality has declined. Pizza was soggy, pasta and sauce was bland. The Chicken Saltimbocca was OK - actually better the next day. The experience was positive, a family birthday dinner, but the food was disappointing. Although I will always recommend the Tiramisu. Still it was not the Buca I remembered."

  • "buca is great for big gatherings! food is great and there's plenty for everyone to eat and still take some home"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The service was excellent. The food was very good, but overpriced for pasta. The wine was too expensive for 6 oz "house" wine. I recommend Buca for lunch, portions are smaller (more normal) and the prices more resonable. I did not like the fact that entries are alacart and still overpriced. I recommend the salads, which can easily be shared."

  • "We had a great time sitting at the kitchen table. Great service; great food. Most of the servers stopped by our table to describe the dishes they were taking out to their clients- all of them looked delicious! The chefs were great, also ; describing some of the dishes they were creating. A little disappointed because we were told that the chef would surprise us with a taste of something, like a free meatball, which didn't happen. Ready to return and try some of the dishes that passed our table!!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "We had a lot of fun and our food was very good. Our waiter was quite forgetful-asking if we had decided on wine when we had already given him our order, never brought 2nd order of bread, didn't keep water glasses full. He seemed a little off. We did have a long wait for the first order of bread as well as entrees and dessert platter. The food was very good though."

  • "We got to celebrate my birthday with 13 others in the semi private room with the King's Chair...It all made for a great time. We chose an off night, so service was fantastic, there was absolute no rush as we stayed there pass closing time and for once the abundance of food was welcome..It was truly like a King's feast."
