    We loved our waitress but food delivery was lagging. They brought my granddaughters food out way before ours( It was apparent the waitress was upset over that) and by the time we got our food she was done eating. It was a busy day for Fathers day so I guess that is why there was a delay in the kitchen. We had to wait waaaaaaaay too long! We love dining here and love the food but no more holiday dining here for us!

    Dined on 6/15/2014
    although the food was good, i was very upset that the service was so bad on fathers day. no refills on soda but charged 15.00 for 5 drinks, no plates for appetizer until after we had eaten it and we waited 20 minutes for a side of sauce my husband requested to go with his meal. By the time we go the sauce we had to leave. On top of that we sat at a corner booth table that had a ledge behind it. this ledge is where all the dirty cups, dishes and trash were stacked, inches from my head and my son continually tried to grab these things throughout lunch. But the plus of this ledge was it is also where extra plates nd the oil & vinegar were placed so we helped ourselves since we had no one eles there to help us when we needed something.

    I had made the reservation at Bucca's a month ago for a very special get together with our immediate family. We have been to this restaurant dozens of times in the past and food, service and ambiance has been top notch. Very disappointed to report that while the food and ambiance expectations were met the service was terrible. It was not the fault of our waiter, he tried his best. He was simply overwhelmed. The meal started out ok but went downhill quickly as more patrons came in. Despite our waiters best efforts by the time appetizers arrived we were mostly on our own as drinks went unfilled, dirty plates stacked up and the expected tableside checkup didn't happen. Management was not to be seen although the chef came out to ask about food.

    Enjoyed a nice dinner at Buca - food was good, service was good, but the noise level was way too loud. We were in a small room with a low ceiling and two very large groups (15-20 people each). It was difficult for our table of 5 to talk, it didn't help that they seated us at a larger round table that could seat 8. Overall the food was consistent and we will go back. However, we will ask for a different area to be seated away from large parties.

    The food is wonderful. The chopped salad is the best anywhere and their lasagna is tops. We also love the tiramisu. However, the decor is nasty. There are too many naked or scantily dressed individuals on the wall. I hate this part of the restaurant.

    My wife and I spent our 3-year anniversary here and we really enjoyed it. The waitress did recommend a dish that she said was the "best ever" and I didn't really enjoy it; but that does not say anything about the food, just my taste buds! Everything else we ate was fantastic. It is a very good place to take a family and share a meal. The food is large enough to split two to three ways.

    We went for my wife's birthday, and this was the perfect place for our group of twelve. The family style portions let everyone try a variety of foods. The service was fantastic! A drink was never emptied before it was refilled. We tried the baked ziti, manicotti, spaghetti with marinara, chicken parmigiana, and two dishes with shrimp. The marinara didn't bring as much flavor to the spaghetti as if hoped, but every other dish was fantastic.

    Our family loves Buca and goes there often. The food has always been high quality and served cheerfully by well trained wait staff. We really like the interesting photos which cover the walls and always prompt conversation about them. We've been Buca fans since they opened this location and look forward to our next visit with them.

    Took our daughter and grandsons on Mother's day to celebrate Mom's day and grandson's bday. It was a hit. So much so that the 14 yr old who is a man of few words told his Mom he DEFINETELY wanted to return. The youngest grandson's eyes almost popped out of his head when a slice of "birthday cake" was quietly set in front of him. (He does not like attention so we nixed the birthday song). Staff made it a special visit and the food was wonderful!

    This is a great place for multiple-generation family outing. Fun for all with lots of choices to eat. A regular for for Sunday or celebratory lunch or dinners for my family. On this trip, service was a little slow (inexperienced server) and temperature cold. However, we enjoyed the experience and the food was plentiful and excellent as always.

    Went to dinner the night before Mother's Day. Ordered 2 entrees and a salad. It took somewhere around 45 minutes or so for our food to be served, although it didn't feel that long and we hadn't really noticed or commented on it. When our food arrived, the manager followed up and explained that she was sorry it had taken so long for 2 entrees, and that our meal was on the house and to pick out a dessert as well. Very nice gesture on their part. This was my first experience at Buca di Beppo and I don't think it would be a regular place for me, as I think I have had better Italian food at other places, however I will return on occasion because of their hospitality and would recommend others do the same.

    family style big portions. Small feeds two, large feeds four. Pizzas are good, pastas are heavy and delicious, fresh garlic bread is yummy! Even the complimentary bread with olive oil and vinegar is quite appetizing. They often run promotions here so keep an eye out. Like 4 people eat for $80 or similar deals which is good for groups to enjoy. Food wise, I would say 4 stars.

  • Easter lunch

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We booked a reservation for Easter and walked right in without a delay. The servers were pleasant and attentive, replenishing drinks and bread frequently. The food took a while to come out of the kitchen and when it did, we had one plate piping hot while another was barely warm. The chicken limone was great-very tender and flavorful. The bread was ok-nothing special. And the pasta supremo was so-so. The chicken was tough and the alfredo sauce was bland. I also thought that $10 for a plate of broccoli was a bit much. But we have eaten there several times in the past and had great food, so I won't hold it against them. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because it was a holiday. We'll be back.

    The pasta, and salad, although plentiful, really lacked flavor. The sauce was bland on the baked ziti, and the rigatoni did not have much flavor either. My wife and I had the Caesar salad, which was fair, and did not have much bite in terms of either a garlic or anchovy flavor. The veal parmigiana was bitter. We had a large bill, over $120. for the four of us (no alcohol either). We did have the 3 Canoli dessert which my daughter raved about.- so one good item. We have been coming there for around 7 years. Each time has been a little less flavor. Texas in general seems to struggle with good Italian food, Having lived in the NE for a number of years, we have very far to go, and Buca certainty needs to pull up their flavor standards.

    We go here once or twice a year, first time at this location. The food was good. Service was decent. My only complaint is that I specifically asked for no booth when posting my reservation for my group of 14. Lo and behold, we were placed in a booth along a long wall. we asked the waiter to move us to one of the larger tables, but he told us they were reserved. We went for Sunday lunch and the place was dead. When we left, the other tables had still not been sat.

    I love the Southlake, TX, Buca du Beppo! The waitstaff is super attentative -- and kid-friendly. My 12-mo-old granddaughter loved our waiters! I rated the food as only "Good" this time. The chicken carbonara was bland and a bit dry. The lasagna was fabulous, though! The manager came to our table and offered to make another entree to replace the one that disappointed, and the gesture alone was enough to satisfy us. We WILL return again!

    It being my first time at this restaurant, I must say, it was a great experience. From the atmosphere to the food (especially), and the employees. Our waiter was great! He was very attentive. Everyone was so friendly. Im glad I decided to get together for my mom's birthday there. She too enjoyed it very much. It is a place that you can go for any occasion even if it is just to have lunch or dine. They definitely are not stingy on the food either. We all had pretty good portion size plates that I can say took care of dinner the next night. I will definitely be going back again!

    This place was amazing from head to toe it had a family feel with a cluttered look that worked for this place. The service was great when any server walked by they would check on you even if they weren't your particular sever. The food was outstanding very flavorful, however I will say this is not a place to go alone because the portions are made family size so if your by yourself expect a lot of food. I will definitely be back for more.
