Fun place for a group, Good value
We needed a table for 7 people, pre-theatre. Buca provided what we needed: a good meal, not too expensive, and we felt comfortable with children. The restaurant feel spacious inside. It's nice to be able to get up without bumping into the chair behind, or having to squeeze between tables. We were comfortable and very happy.

Experience wonderful, as usual
We've been to Buca many times in Pennsylvania, but this was our first time eating at the one in Times Square. It is in a convenient location and it is very nice to see the calorie counts on all of the food items. The Veal Marsala was especially tasty.

The waiter was great, the place is nicely decorated. Kind of casual and romantic. The food was good.

Great for Times Square sight-seeing, good for families as it was not too crowded, and delicious food.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was fabulous and plentiful. The service was extremely slow which wasn't expected especially since it didn't seem that busy, and I've been to other Buca's. I still had a great time regardless.

I'm so glad we found this
I'm so glad we found this restaurant right in the middle of the theater district. The food was wonderful and so was the service. I loved all the posters and pictures on the walls. This is a family style restaurant with generous portions at a reasonable price. I would definitely be visiting again anytime I am in that area to see a play. The meal which included soda, salad, pasta, and a meat only came to $25 a person, and that included tip!!!

Great place for family
Generous portions, family style serving and quality food makes this a great place.

I have been to other Buca di Beppo restaurants and they were all hopping. This one was more than half empty and very subdued. Not sure if it is because Buca is hidden on the 3rd floor, but I would recommend people check this place out. Food is solid. Prices are very high, though -- $9.99 for plain garlic bread!!! Not as good as Carmine's, but that a tough standard to meet. However, very easy to get reservations here unlike Carmine's! And also unlike Carmine's you can get a small and large size of the family size portions. Good if not everyone wants to eat the same thing.

Huge helpings and I was very impressed with the size of the complimentary ice cream sundae they provided for my girlfriend's birthday. The half-pound meatball was all it was cracked up to me. Great overall experience. Only slight downfall was the service, but not terrible.
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was great! The service was great! It was my birthday and they made it very special and fun. The prices were reasonable. Huge portions and we split smalls and had leftovers. Even huge desserts!!
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a great place to take a group or family. Family style dining makes this a nice dinner out.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Price in Times Square
We did not realize we were going to a family style restaurant in terms of the serving sizes. In the end it worked out perfectly. Servings for 2+ were the same price as an entree for one person at any other restaurant, especially in Times Square. We all got our own meal and gave our food to someone in need when we left the restaurant. The food, not to mention, was delicious and the garlic bread was phenomenal!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great surprise, delightful
Great surprise, delightful dinidg ans stuning service!!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time at Buca di Beppo. We were celebrating my mom's birthday. The food was delicious and it accomodated all of us. We were a group of 6 and there was enough food for all. I loved all the italian history on the walls. We will definitly go again.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Italian Family Fun
I love Buca di Beppo's. I became a fan when I lived outside of Philly and was thrilled to find that one had opened in NYC. Atrmosphere is fun and friendly. The food is great - really authentic Italian, as far I am concerned. (My Grandma Romanelli would have approved!) Everything is served family style and the portions are extremely generous. One note: A tiny bit hard to find because the address is on Broadway, but the entrance is actually on 45th.

Their Penne ala Vodka
OMG ! it's the most amazing Penne ala Vodka I have ever had ! Also - their brushetta is delicious...
everything is great - they even have a happy hour (only until 6pm) - highly recommend this place...
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great choice for a special birthday
This has become a favorite local place. We selected this place to celebrate a birthday for a special friend. Sean, our server is friendly and efficient. He was great at recommending a wine as well as some suggestions on the food. Of course, we ordered too much, but the leftovers were great for lunch the next day.
9/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
just like old times..........
I've eaten at this chain many times. This last time was just as good as all the rest. Great food along with wonderful servers makes for a terrific dining experience....................

Solid group event venue
Bucca is a solid venue for groups. Their meals were meant to be shared family style. The food is what you would expect for old fashion Italian cuisine. Even in bulk, the pasta was cooked well and the sauces were flavorful. The chicken, however, was a bit on the dryer side.
Ambience was great as the venue was broken into smaller dining rooms that kept noise level to a minimum. Our waiter was personable and attentive. I would come here again for another special event. This is also one of the few places to make a reservation for 10 on a Saturday night in NYC at an acceptable dinner hour in the last minute.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
What A Night!!!!!!!!!!
We went out for a bday celebration our server was wonderful. He answered our questions and gave us samples of the wines. He was very polite and very approachable. The food was great on sizes the smalls you can feed more like 3 people than 2. The Cesars Salad you can feed 4 people more than 2 and thats the small salad. You have to order the garlic bread its AMAZING. The brownie Sundae you can feed like 6-8 people with because it has 6 scoops of ice cream. I will definity go again.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just what we were looking for!
We wanted great Italian food while we were in New York, and we got it!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always love it!
We eat at Bucco's every year in Florida and did not know there was one in Times Square and wouldn't have if it were'nt OPEN TABLE!! Group of 12 that saved a bunch of time with reservations and searching. Excellent site, thank you!
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The lunch special, only Monday through Friday, was good and plentiful. Word of advice is that coffee and soft drinks were on the high side. No prices were listed on the menu. Service should have been better. Bread was removed before the main dish was served and had to wait awhile to get the waiter's attention for the check.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I Absolutely loved the food @ Buca de Beppo. The Alfredo and marinara was fresh and rich. The waiter Torrin was a pleasure. Extremely accommodating but didn't hover. I recommend the baked ziti it's too die for and the florentine cheese bread simply divine. I love Italian and have gone to various great ones. This one is in a class by itself.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great place to get your 'foodie' on!...Loved it in CA and loved it in Times Square! For me, this place does not disappoint, the food is great, the service is commendable and the staff is friendly and aims to please. *Aidan, there should be more servers like you!* The chefs and manager (who's names escape me now, sorry), they were great and came out to speak with us; very cool! I would recommend Buca to anyone who enjoys Italian food, but don't take my word for it--find out for yourself and then decide! We loved it and will gladly go back again and again.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service was very
The food and service was very good and just what I expected. You will have to look for it in Times Square as it is fairly new to that area in New York. Buca has always been good at any branch I have visited across the nation.

Fantastic Food at Great Prices
As usual, this restaurant has great food, service that is wonderful, and their prices are unbelievable for midtown New York. They always have coupons.

Great for a pre-show dinner!
Couldn't be happier! Look no further for good Italian food in the theater district (coming from an Italian). Homestyle eating was fun and gave this place a homey feel. Our waiter didn't blink when we asked for a small side of pasta w/butter not on menu, and my kids (10, 13) asked if we could eat here every time we come to NYC (their choice over Sardi's). Two small platters, chosen by the kids, sides of veggies, pasta and garlic bread were much more than our family of 4 could eat.
The atmosphere was tasteful and quiet. We enjoyed looking at all of the vintage photos without the noise of alot of dishes banging around. Had difficulty finding it at first...the entrance is on a side street in the same building as Planet Holleywood.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
I HAVE HAD THE PLEASURE OF EATING HERE AT THE MILWAUKEE CHAIN. NEVER EVER A DISAPOINTMENT. THE FETTUCCINI ALFREDO TASTES LIKE MY NONNAS.
I WISH THEY HAD THESE IN CANADA
11/3/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun in Times Square
We caught a slow day & it was very quiet but service was a little slow. Two of the wines we tried to order they were out of. Food was very good & the Bruschetta was outstanding. We'll have to try the "family style" sharing menu next time. Overall we were pleased.
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Service was inconsistent
We were just at the same restaurant a month ago but last night's experience was less than stellar. Our server was great but seemed to be super busy so we didn't get the care that we would have expected - no utensils, no water, no follow-ups - UNLESS we asked for it. This is not what you'd expect especially since we've been bringing groups here and tonight was no different. They now have another revenue generator by having someone take your picture and framing it with the Bucca logo. Really? Would be great if the money they got from photo they took of us with mustaches go to Movember - charitable organization for men's health research - then we would pay the $10 for it. Blatant money making is just not cool.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fun, feast, family style
Buca di Beppo is much better than expected. Because it is laid out in smaller rooms and has many items to cushion the walls and block the sound, it winds up being less noisy and feels less crowded and gigantic than it really is. We were easily able to carry on a conversation, no one rushed us at any time, and we had a very nice dinner while coming from different sides of the city to meet in a central place to visit. All the dishes were well prepared and we enjoyed the experience.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great family style Italian!
Came here with a group of 7 and it was perfect--got a big bottle of wine and several dishes to share. Food was great, and we had a lot of fun!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Almost a last minute reservation for 8.... very accomodating
Almost late for reservation due to traffic... very accomodating
Sat us almost immediately since we had a show to catch!
Quick service, host and waitstaff were great!
Would go again for sure and highly reccomend for kids and even big groups.

family italian dining
The restaurant serves italian dishes"family style". The portions are huge! Great value for your dollar. Food is delicious too!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I have eaten numerous times at this restaurant in Florida. Food is outrageously good, in Florida. I booked a reservation to eat at Buca in Times Square in New York City as a special treat for my daughter and granddaughter. Restaurant was almost impossible to find, cab drivers had never heard of it. We finally were just walking around Times Square looking down every side street and there it was. Hated it being on the third floor. No ambiance when you first walked in. Food just was lacking something, would not eat there again in New York. And would not recommend it to anyone going into the City. Too many other outstanding places to eat. I was so disappointed.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
When visiting Buca in Whitehall, PA they walk you through the kitchen to take you to your table. I guess it's really too busy in NYC to do that but that was the one thing I missed. Food and service were excellent!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
A Good Time
We caught a 2:15 pm lunch prior to our 5:00 pm show at NYC's world famous Radio City Music Hall. What I thought was going to be a rushed and impossible feat was totally not. In fact, it was just the opposite: quite, good seating and almost empty. We had the wait staff all to ourselves and the service was great. I'd certainly recommend to anyone looking to do lunch for a large group.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food and awesome service
Great food and awesome service from our waitress Olivia.
We will definitely return again on our next trip to NYC.

Thanks for Serving On Thanksgiving
Went to the Macy's Day parade on Thanksgiving and made a reservation for Buca Di Beppo due to the Thanksgiving menu. Overall a good experience. The service was good, the Thanksgiving meal tasty, and the price very reasonable. I commend all at Buca who gave up their personal holidays to make ours perfect.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Thanksgiving Family Dinner
Great place in Times Square for family dinner. We visited on Thanksgiving and were able to share a traditional Turkey dinner, along with several Italian add on dishes. Got in exactly when our reservations were for. Inexpensive compared to most places in NY. Great place if you are with younger family members.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Veramente italian food
We enjoyed the lunch so much. The meat ball likes my mother in law!! I will come back!!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Salturday in New York
Our group of six needed a place for lunch before the Christmas Spectacular at Radio City. Buca di Beppo sat us a table in the corner which was perfect for the two children in our group. The service was very good. The wait staff was attentive and quickly corrected one minor problem. The food portions are family style "large." While not a gourmet dining experience, the dishes were very tasty. Everyone was satisfied. The location is perfect for those attending the theater.
11/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Food was great!
We went for lunch 12/01/2013. The sizes are hard to judge when ordering for 3 adults and 2 children. The Chicken Parm was a table favorite, Penne ala Vodka very creamy and delicious. All that plus fresh bread, there was no room left for dessert.
