Diner Reviews
  • "We had a party of 7 (including my 4month old) and we had a blast! There's nothing like sharing pasta and garlic bread with your family around a big table! They have AMAZING house made Italian sodas and cream sodas that are to die for! I don't drink but my husband assures me the wine selection was fantastic. We got a small frutti di mare, a large veil parmesan, and a large Quattro cheese something and of course garlic bread. I usually get the house di beppo salad when I go but this time nobody wanted to share with me! Also keep in mind EVERYTHING is meant to share, they don't do single servings of anything but the drinks!"

  • "We had a fun night. Food was fun to order and eat as the menu has a little bit of everything and something for everyone. There was seven of us. The staff were very friendly and willing to engage with us whatever our request may have been. Had several waiters helping us out. We had the table in the kitchen, and were shown all of the orders/dishes as they left for the main dinning room. Not sure I would go in a small group, but for seven it was ideal. We'll be back the next time we want to go out in a group with teenagers and Grand parents, or any other mixed age group of locals or out-of-towners. The restaurant has several rooms that are specially decorated. We wanted the "Pope's" room but it was booked. Maybe next time!"

  • "Upon arrival the staff appeared flustered, we advised them we had a reservation for 4 however we had added a guest. They stated that was fine but again appeared confused between themselves on where to sit us. We were lead to the back of the restaurant which was fine however there were many dirty unserviced tables. Obviously this night was busy. Our waiter was plesent however again seemed rushed; my wine order was incorrect and it was like I was trying to get a freebie when asked to be corrected. The female bartender scolded me like a child about the pouring of the wine, did not appreciate. The food was decent for the price however the rude bartender and rushed staff was a big turnoff"

  • "We went to Buca for my dads 64th birthday. He is a big fan of the Sopranos and Italian food lover. It was the perfect combination, the ambiance was outstanding and the service was great. We sat at the pope's table. My Dad and Mom being of the era loved all the pictures and bar setting. It was a first time for them and they both said it was one of the coolest places they have been too. We had a party of 11 so we all choose several platters that was enough for multiple servings and enough for to-go left overs. It made for an outstanding 64th Birthday Party Celebration. It was a first time vist for 7 of 11 in our party and they absolutely enjoyed it. Score for us.."

  • "We love this restaurant--the decor is a hoot and the food is unbelievably good! I will not eat lasagna anywhere else but Buca di Beppo-it is absolutely the best-just the right amount of sauce and cheese. The staff is always friendly and helpful, and the desserts are out of this world. You would think with the size of the entrees and desserts that the prices would be prohibitive but they are extremely reasonable. We had reservations for a Saturday afternoon because our family was celebrating 2 birthdays and an anniversary. We arrived a little early and we were promptly seated while we waited for the rest of our party. This is a great place to celebrate with a group or for a cozy dinner for 2--but either way, you will take food home."

  • "I'm from Argentina, we has a strong italian heritage and we eat a lot of pasta, I'm living in Texas for 8 months until now and this is the first place I eat pasta that I like it... It was a color party, dancing inside my mouth. And the dessert... WAW... that brownie was really handmade..... A very familiar place."

  • "My wife and I love this place. great food , great service they don't try to rush you in and get you out. selections are awesome and portions are huge. bartenders aren't shy with drinks either. the desserts are " to die for". (as my wife says) if you go home hungry from this place its your own fault. BUCA ROCKS !!!"

  • "We have been here before but a while back. The food used to be good, not great, but we still decided to give it another try. And, we were truly disappointed. I wish we had spent our valentines evening at home eating cheese and crackers. The food was bland at best and the only reason why they are even getting a fair is because of excellent service. One thing is for sure - we won't come back here again."

  • "We ordered several menu items, including Calamari, Ziti, Salad, Chicken, and Eggplant parmesian, 6 people and we took home several leftover containers. I have a gluten allergy so could only eat the salad and chicken. Both were very good. Others said the other items were also very good."

  • "The food was great, but we were seated right under a speaker, so the music, at times, was extremely loud and we had a hard time conversing over the louder songs."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "We had a group of 14 for lunch on Sunday. The reservation was handled very well, the table was ready when requested and the wait staff was superb. The only issue is that there is no option for people with smaller appetites. If you don't want to share the food you must take it home and we had a lot of food go home with people. Possibly they should have some options for single serving size."

  • "We lucked out as the kitchen table was availble when we arrived. Get to see what is going on behind the scenes. Get to see other entrees and appetizers. Makes for an education on the next time we go. A unique experience. Not for everyone though. If you want to see what is being made, reserve in advance."

  • "We actually had reservations for four people at 11:15 am, for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We are in the process of moving and having Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner at Buca's was a wonderful alternative to cooking. We arrived both times approx. 15 minutes early and were seated within 5 minutes. Prior to both dinners, Buca's called me to verify the reservation. During Thanksgiving, Buca's had a turkey dinner special, which was great. There wasn't a Christmas special, just the usual orders for the menu. That is the only recommendation I would add. Please have a turkey special for Christmas, too. The food was great, as usual. I would definitely recommend Buca's!"

  • "Although I eat out often, I had never tried Buca di Beppo. I brought family with we, and we were not disappointed. Everything we tried was very good, and the service was friendly and efficient. Those looking for a "bargain" or low prices, should look elsewhere, although prices were not too expensive------just not your $10-15 place. I would recommend this restaurant and would return."
