    If you are in the theater district and are looking for a moderately priced place to eat before or after a show, where the food is pretty good and you can get in without waiting for hours, this is the restaurant to go to. The food is not gourmet, but very good and the atmosphere is attractive.

    One of the best restaurants that I have been to in NYC. Food was great ... prices not too bad at all considering 4 of us shared two meals and an appetizer family style and had leftovers to take home. Service was ECELLENT!! Waiter, Tommy was so friendly and always available to answer questions or suggest entres! Went to bar for best happy hour in town ... great prices .. asked for a Margarita on the rocks and the bartender made us his special Italian Margarita with amaretto!! The service was wonderful and that is what will bring us back!

    Six people shared a Hugh salad which was delicious. We then had a pasta dish, followed by a chicken Marsala The staff was friendly and efficient. We told them we had limited time because we had show tickets and they did their best to get us out in a timely manner! The sangria was also delicious! It was a great meal for a very reasonable price in New York City! Would definitely recommend !

    Was really looking forward to this meal. Staff were friendly, restaurant looked great, menu was appetising, sadly when the food came, it was a great disappointment with the exception of the garlic bread. Ordered the lasagne, nice big portion for two, tasted as if someone made it using a jar of Dolmio sauce. This is definitely a case of quantity over quality...

    So glad this family style Italian restaurant has made it to NYC. There are just a few in California, and like their sister restaurants, Buca di Beppo is a super fun place to with a small or large group with better than average food, huge portions for sharing and wacky decor. No restaurant delivers a birthday song like the staff here do. Grazi!

    We enjoyed our meal on a Saturday evening. We made a 7:00 reservation and were seated within minutes. They were very busy but our server was decent and the food came relatively quickly. Bread took longer to get then the meal itself. The meal was ok, warm but not hot, which would have been preferred. We opted not to do dessert because the neighboring table had the Tiramisu and it was barely touched. We asked what they thought and they said it was awful. We overheard them tell the waiter and he laughed and did not try to remedy the situation. In my opinion in NY you can find much better alternatives for Italian. However for the convenience of the location, I would try again.

    Have visited this location before, and always find it to be a great experience. Staff is always friendly & attentive, food is delicious!! Had the penne in vodka sauce, best I have ever had. Portions are large; the small, definately can feed 3 adults. Only thing I don't understand is the "happy hour". Seven days a week from 4-7pm, but only if you eat in the bar section??? Let all the diners, take advantage of drink specials, why limit it to diners only seated in the bar area. Other than that, everything was great. You won't be disappointed! Food is excellent, and doesn't taste like a franchise italian restaurant.

    We took 7 people and 4 were teens. The food was family style, so we were able to order 3 small entrees and be full by the time we left. After drinks (pop) and tip we ended up paying $15 per person. This is a great price for Times Square sit-down food. I am unsure this is the place for a couple; unless you like the same food to share. I gave a 4 out of 5 on food b/c the Spaghetti was ok; but the Fettuccine and Baked Ziti was much better. Their meatballs were good and huge.

    Everything was great. From the moment we walked in for our reservation we had a great experience. The hostess was very friendly when she greeted us. She sat us down in a nice room and within a few moments our server Aidan was at our table. He is an excellent server . The food was very good, especially the salad! Another server, Tom, was also excellent. It was a very positive experience. I live near Albany and will now visit that location as well with my two boys. They loved it! Thank you for a great dinner experience in NYC. We will always remember it as a highlight of our trip to the big apple.

    This is my 5th visit to a Buca, but first time at one in Times Square. Fabulous location, but no views at all of outside. Need to take an elevator up to restaurant. Food very mediocre and prices are much higher here than any other of their locations. Had to ask for bread or would not have had any. There are many much better Italian restaurants close by, like Carmine's or Tony DiNapoli's ,so try to go there first, but in a bind Buca will fill your needs, but nothing to write home about from the Big Apple!

    It has been my third time going to eat at Buca and my second time visiting this one in Times Square, the food was delicious, the service was great because the food did not take long to cook. Only thing that I wish is that the seating could be in a more intimate setting as far as a date for two. My boyfriend of two years and I enjoyed the food very much, but also wish there could have been seating for two or just a booth. This would have made the experience much better.

    Ok, I wasn't expecting much, and was kind of surprised to have a perfectly enjoyable meal. Our waiter was nice, guided us through the family portions & sizing, and was fairly attentive. The meatballs were a lot of fun, the chicken pretty good & the salad was big, crunchy & tasty. Garlic bread was only so-so, but maybe should have tried the one with cheese - I mean, why not I guess if we're having all the other stuff :)

    we went for a work good bye lunch and it was perfect for us. They gave us a nice little room for us to have a private lunch. We ordered the family style portions and they were perfect for the group. We had to ask to have the music turned down several times - it was unnecessarily loud. The service was fair. Our waitress was lovely, but it seems shie might have been the only person working. Lots of others standing around, but she seemed to be the only one actually working. It took a long time between salad and main entrees and then again for dessert and check. It was a bit ridiculous. the food was great

    To be fair, I did not know that this was a chain. I was looking for a restaurant near Aladdin and this is what was the closest with OT reservations. The pasta was obviously not fresh and the server was not good either. He kept calling my table of 6 guys...4 of us were of the female gender. I am also not a fan of the family style dining, it does not provide you with the option to taste multiple dishes. All in all if the food was good it would not have mattered but, the was not good so...
