    We had an overall good experience with a couple of frustrating bits. I am in a wheelchair so three days before our Thanksgiving meal I called to make sure we were at an accessible table and was told that yes we were. We arrived about five minutes before our reservation time. There was a huge crowd in the waiting area. We had to wait more than twenty minutes. When my husband went to find out why he was told that it was because they were moving our group to a wheelchair accessible table since they didn't know we needed that. Grrrr. We ordered a cheese bread appetizer that did not arrive until after our entrée. Other than that it was a good experience.

    As a former Dallas resident who has moved to Oklahoma City, I miss Buca di Beppo. It is always on my list of restaurants to visit. My husband is hard to please and he loves this place as he has a Italian bloodline! As a former waiteress myself, I know good service and our waiteress did just that even when we forgot to order side dishes she had them out quickly! We always get the meatballs...yummy! We love the atmosphere and the menu.....please come to OKC!

    There are only 3 good reasons to go here: (1) you want piles of food at reasonable prices; (2) you don.t care what it tastes like; and (3) you don't care if the service is not good. Otherwise, avoid at all costs. We, a group of 4, went on a Thursday night. It was recommended that we 4 share 2 entrees and we did. The portions were huge and would have been plenty if we could have finished them, but the taste was bland and unmemorable. The service was lousy. Starting when were were halfway each course, the waiter kept trying to remove the plates, even after we repeatedly told him that we were not through, not even close. He still persisted. Bottom line . . . .avoid unless you want lots of food and do not care about taste or service.

    The ambience and friendly staff is definitely a reason to come back. The great menu choices is exceptional, especially the chicken limone. During the week for dinner is nice and quiet with a super kid-friendly atmosphere. The menu items are also kid-friendly. The bar and drinks are great for adults who want to hit the town looking for a nice romantic spot.

    Gave our server our credit card & was told it didn't work, gave another card & was told this card didn't work either! Second card was a bank debit card & knew ample money in account. Had guest in party ask if they needed to pay for us. Left the table to find server & found out the error was on Buca! Apparently amount needed manager approval due to being over $100 ?!?! Buca finally figured out their error but only after embarassing us in front of our friends, twice !!!

    The ability to schedule a reservation was very nice. This was our 2nd anniversary dinner. The overall rating is fair. I had mentioned the anniversary in my notes to the restaurant. I thought perhaps we would get a small table or booth. We were seated in a large booth sized for 5-6 people. It was awkward seating for just the two of us. The food was good but nothing extraordinarily delicious or unique. A locally owned Italian restaurant would have been just a good and perhaps more intimate. The waitstaff seemed rushed although there were empty tables in each section. At one point there were two servers chasing each other down the hallway from the kitchen into the dining area. Another odd moment was when the hostess shouted toward the kitchen.

    I brought a friend who loves Italian food and was disappointed mainly with my server. We didn't get to tour and get the history of the restaurant. I had spoke highly of this place but the service for lunch was not great. I am not sure if I will be back. I wanted to ask questions but the server seemed to be in a rush and took forever getting our order. He was not very attentive, I watched him spend more time at other tables.

    Other than having to ask our server to have the a/c turned down..it was fabulous food! I would also like to suggest that their draperies hanging in the main dining room be cleaned...they look as though they've not been dusted in years! Not to take anything away from the lasagna, which was absolutely light as air and melted in my mouth...FABULOUS! Meatballs to die for and the rest sauce without fault.. I'll go back ...for sure!

    My wife and I were underwhelmed by the average quality of the food. For the $94 we spent, I just expected more. We tend to struggle to appreciate food that we feel we can make at home that tastes as good if not better than something we would pay for at a restaurant. The service was great and the setting was fun and upbeat. The espresso tasted like super acidic coffee. The tiramisu was pretty good.

    We went on a night were they were having a Mary Kay event in the main area. I'm sure the event was planned well in advance ? The food took forever to get to the table. I'm not sure if the service forgot to put the order in or the kitchen was overloaded with orders. Either way it was horrible planning on the part of the management !! The only thing the service did quickly is pick up the check for the tip ! Wonder why :)

    Our family had a wonderful dining experience at Buca di Peppo on Park Lane in Dallas. It was great for us to celebrate a birthday in the family. Each menu selection is served family style, which suited our family of four just fine. We started out with the Buca Trio Platter for an appetizer, our salad was the di Peppo 1893 Salad, and we chose the Salmon Sorrento entree and the Cheese Manicotti, one of the baked pasta specialties. Our waiter did an outstanding job, too! For dessert we had the Colossal Brownie Sundae--served in a huge "martini glass" dish. All the food was truly delicious. For drinks we had Santa Margheritas, and one of our party tried several beers.

    I've been to Buca before and this time it wasn't as good! Our waiter was super slow but he had like 5 other tables so I'm guessing they were short on waiters. The food was good but not great this time, a little disappointed in the entrees that we got. We finished eating and our waiter walker by us 5 times and saw our plates had been pushed away & stacked on each other and never bothered to stop to take them or ask if we wanted dessert. The manager finally came and got the plates and asked if we needed anything else. I will go to Buca again but I hope it's a different experience next time.

    Buca di Beppo is old-school Italian-American. The place is designed to look and feel that way, and everything is delivered family style. Food is surprisingly good. Calamari appetizer was hot, crispy, and the squid was tender and served with a nice marinara. Pastas were well prepared, al dente, with fresh sauces. Veal saltimbocca was nicely done - tender, with crispy prosciutto and artichokes in a light sauce. Service was attentive and pleasant. Prices are very reasonable. Well worth going to, especially for groups.

    Buca is a great place for any occasion. Large portions of pasta are for sharing and is worth every penny. For a busy Friday night, we were seated very quickly. Our server was very nice and attentive. We had a bit of everything due to our party size and everything tasted fantastic. From the chicken marsala to the spaghetti and meatballs... you can't go wrong with any item on this menu.
