    We've been to another Bucca in Wash DC. The one in NYC obviously came out of the same cookie cutter. It is that spirit of fun and overdone Italian decore that will bring us back many times. Prices are family-friendly, food is quite good. The main description is 'FUN."

    This was a second visit in as many weeks. We tried different entrees (chicken parm. and baked ziti) and they were delicious. We remarked how good the sauce was and the waiter quickly brought us a side of more sauce to put on our meals. The service is attentive without being intrusive. The noise level is low, so that a normal level of conversation is possible. At the end of our meal, the manager came to our table to speak to us about our experience and he was sincerely interested in our comments. It was not just the pass-by, requisite , "How was your meal?" He was extremely cordial and receptive to our remarks. This restaurant is great also for groups or families, as they have separate rooms rather than one large open space.

    Times square always gets a bad rap for places to eat , but there are a number of gems for large groups like Carmines, Tony Napoli - and you can add Buca di Beppo to the list. Food was excellent The chicken saltimbocca stood out for taste and tenderness, the chicken marsala had a sweeter taste then normal but was excellent in it's own right. One small order of each for three people was $55 and was enough that we had to passed up dessert. Matthew our server was attentive and professional. The walls are covered with all sorts of Photos --most Italian family's will see many reasons to laugh and smile.

  • A wonderful Surprise
    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/9/2014
    The restaurant is comprised of small rooms, similar to small Italian alcoves. The space is quiet and conducive to normal conversations. Service is pleasant, prompt and efficient without being pushy. Meals are served in two portion sizes, small and large. We ordered a small salad and a small entree which were generous portions and too much for the two of us. The walnut, apple, gorgonzola salad was delicious as was the special autumn pasta. If I could make a recommendation, it would be to serve a warm, crusty Italian bread rather than a pedestrian, cold, white bread attempt at an Italian bread. Nevertheless, I will certainly return and just skip the bread. This is a great place for a pre-theater dinner and for family and friends.

    Quickly, we where served nice warm bread and butter along with water and our beverages of our choice. The service is efficient and available, but you never felt rushed. We started with Garlic Bread which is amazing. The large garden salad was more than enough for 4 hungry adults and the baked ziti is delicious and again more than enough for 4 adults. No matter how full you are, you must save a little room for desert which are large enough to share as well. Try the tiramisu, or the canolis or if you are brave, the ice cream sundae with brownies, ice cream and whipped cream. Amazing. As I said, the food is outstanding, but the warm and reliable staff complete the evening. Great for small or large groups.

    I went with a group of 20 somethings to celebrate a birthday and the ambiance, price and food were all a hit. It's not a 5 star high end experience, but that's not why you to Buca di Beppo. It's a great place to go for reliably good quality and they know how to make birthdays special (they have a personalized song they sing if forewarned).

    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...
