    I think the girls' name was Lorraine on August 22nd at around 645. Her service was awesome! She checked on us to see if we needed so many times, I lost count! We didn't have time to wan t for anything because she was always there to immediately get what ever we needed. The food was also great and we had a lot to take home. We used to go often to the Hawaii (Waikiki) location but we will frequent this establishment more often although we live over on the Kitsap Pennisula. Bravo for providing a place for me to celebrate my birthday! We definitely will return for more celebrations!

    Service was friendly and excellent in the Landmark South Lake Union Restaurant. The food is always Okay and the ambience is always a kick. This is a good family restaurant, or adult birthday dinner place for larger groups. Portions are family style and Buca's ideas of a portion are generous beyond most expectations. The food may not really be better than what you can make at home, but it isn't worse, and it is pretty fun and inexpensive... also it's not at home!

    Arrived with a group of 7 - including 3 small children. And these tired children were not a fun bunch b/c of late dinner (later than their usual time). I alerted the server that I'd appreciate prompt service for the same reason. She was on it - took our order, got us whatever we asked for, and brought our food promptly. I was very impressed and pleased! And she did it all with a winning smile. And food was pretty decent. Haven't been here in a decade and didn't expect all that much. We ordered: (Spicy) Chicken Rigatoni, Marghertia Pizza, Mixed Salad, and Chicken Marsala. We enjoyed them all. I wasn't crazy about Marsala but my hubby didn't seem to mind. Will return in the future.

    We just returned from a month in northern Italy and it was great to hit Buca de Beppo's in Seattle for a bit of "home"! The food was good, a bit too much oregano for my liking - but very much like the "home cooking" in Italy. This place is NOISY but so is the family in Spresiano so we felt like we were still in the Veneto. Highly recommend for a crowded, family style place to eat! You won't get high cuisine but that's not why you go to Buca's!

    My wife and MIL have been trying to get me to come here for years which now I understand. My MIL was not happy we went without her - I'm going to deal with that a long time:-) The food was fabulous, the wait staff was pleasant and funny (our waitress photo-bombed our pic) and service was quick. The family style idea is great as well. We plan on taking our kids as we felt the kids would love the atmosphere and the Bucca De Beppo B-day song.

    The food was AMAZING. It was my first time using open table to make a reservation. Our res was at 8:15. We didn't get sat until 9:10. That was frustrating because as we were sat there were numerous open tables. Service was good, but I saw that people who had ordered after us were served before us. And we had to ask for more drinks. The ambience is fun and loud. Great for big parties. The food is worth the wait. But I only dine here twice a year as I don't like the wait or the service. I guess take-out would be the best option for me from now on.

    Best Italian food in the northwest, very open and lively atmosphere and all the photos and trinkets on the walls throughout the whole restaurant, even in the bathroom. Friendly and knowledgeable hostesses. You can walk up but best if you have reservations. This was my second visit to the Buca di Beppo in Seattle. The first time we didn't have reservations and had to wait awhile, so we decided to take a seat in the bar until our table was ready. It took sometime in the bar to even get a seat so we learned to make a reservation well in advance as we have about six to twelve people each time we go. There's also a Buca di Beppo up north in Lynnwood we like going there also. I think it's time the southend get's a Buca di Beppo.

    In principle it's a good place for groups as everything is served family style. The food is basically Italian style food I could easily make at home. The night that we were there, they seemed to be understaffed, which was odd for a Friday night, especially given that there was a marathon starting the next morning within a few blocks (lots of folks carbo-loading before the race). Everything took forever.

    Planned on eating at Buca's the night before the Seattle R & R marathon to have a relaxing meal with my running partners and load up on carbs for the run in the process. The service was extremly slow. First course came quickly than our server seemed to forget about us. She eventually took the rest of our order but by the time the pasta came it was luke warm and when I mentioned that we never received our salad course, she said oh well she would just serve it after the pasta. I have eaten here numerous times in the past and have never been disappointed however after this experince I am not sure I will try it again.

    You come here for one reason: Decent quality Italian food in LARGE quantities. Tables are close together, the décor is funky and basic. If you are into it, they also have a Pope Table. Service was friendly and efficient. The Apple Gorgonzola salad, the Chicken Saltimbucca were very good. The baked ziti and the shrimp fra diavolo were both HUGE, but very heavy, the ziti sauce disappointingly bland and sticky. The Diavolo was spicy, but few shrimp to be found. And the Carbonara was more like a cheesy alfredo. Good, but not what was expected. Cocktails were watery, stick with wine and beer. Great place to feed large parties, a real value, but for small groups order carefully or you will be dragging home TONS of expensive leftovers.

    Place was not prepared to be slammed by graduation celebrations. Or they were expecting it but just couldn't handle it. Had reservations, seated 40 minutes after. Service staff seemed adequate but maybe kitchen and bar were not. Calamari was greasy and tasteless. It was a heavy hand that added the chili flakes in the fra diavolo. Took 20 minutes for the beer to arrive and were told the bar was really busy. Nobody else could pull the tap? Cheesecake was dry and too dense. Chocolate molten cake was a little moist in center but did not ooze. Double espresso was served in a mug...15 minutes before dessert. Server asked what we were there to celebrate (our graduate was in her gown) but there was no special "treat" for her anyway...so why ask.

    We've eaten at several different Buccas in Northern California, Southern California and Florida over the past several years and this was our first in Seattle. We were a little hesitant to make our reservations as our last experience at Bucca in Fort Myers, FL wasn't the greatest. But it was our daughter's high school graduation and we needed to accommodate several people from out of state and many with Italian heritage. We were not disappointed. Everyone had a wonderful time. The food was exceptional as was the service. It is this kind of an evening that leaves one with the fondest I memories and keeps patrons coming back. Thank you for a most wonderful evening.

    This visit was one of many for our family, this time to celebrate our son's 31st birthday. It has been one of his favorite restaurants since he was in high school! Our whole family enjoys the quality of food Buca has to offer and it is always nice to have familiar faces serve us each time we come in. (To have our server actually recognize us was a surprise!) The service, atmosphere and food are perfect! I highly recommend this Buca di Beppo restaurant in Seattle to locals and visitors alike!

    Busy place. I would recommend open table reservations before you show up here. Casual dining experience. Food portions are outrageous- plan on sharing then taking some home. Food items were down to earth in taste and pleasing to the palate. Friendly service with right amount of food server interaction. I had a positive experience here and would return if given the opportunity.
