    Our family loves Buca and goes there often. The food has always been high quality and served cheerfully by well trained wait staff. We really like the interesting photos which cover the walls and always prompt conversation about them. We've been Buca fans since they opened this location and look forward to our next visit with them.

    Dined on 5/11/2014
    Took our daughter and grandsons on Mother's day to celebrate Mom's day and grandson's bday. It was a hit. So much so that the 14 yr old who is a man of few words told his Mom he DEFINETELY wanted to return. The youngest grandson's eyes almost popped out of his head when a slice of "birthday cake" was quietly set in front of him. (He does not like attention so we nixed the birthday song). Staff made it a special visit and the food was wonderful!

    This is a great place for multiple-generation family outing. Fun for all with lots of choices to eat. A regular for for Sunday or celebratory lunch or dinners for my family. On this trip, service was a little slow (inexperienced server) and temperature cold. However, we enjoyed the experience and the food was plentiful and excellent as always.

    Went to dinner the night before Mother's Day. Ordered 2 entrees and a salad. It took somewhere around 45 minutes or so for our food to be served, although it didn't feel that long and we hadn't really noticed or commented on it. When our food arrived, the manager followed up and explained that she was sorry it had taken so long for 2 entrees, and that our meal was on the house and to pick out a dessert as well. Very nice gesture on their part. This was my first experience at Buca di Beppo and I don't think it would be a regular place for me, as I think I have had better Italian food at other places, however I will return on occasion because of their hospitality and would recommend others do the same.

    family style big portions. Small feeds two, large feeds four. Pizzas are good, pastas are heavy and delicious, fresh garlic bread is yummy! Even the complimentary bread with olive oil and vinegar is quite appetizing. They often run promotions here so keep an eye out. Like 4 people eat for $80 or similar deals which is good for groups to enjoy. Food wise, I would say 4 stars.

  • Easter lunch

    Dined on 4/20/2014
    We booked a reservation for Easter and walked right in without a delay. The servers were pleasant and attentive, replenishing drinks and bread frequently. The food took a while to come out of the kitchen and when it did, we had one plate piping hot while another was barely warm. The chicken limone was great-very tender and flavorful. The bread was ok-nothing special. And the pasta supremo was so-so. The chicken was tough and the alfredo sauce was bland. I also thought that $10 for a plate of broccoli was a bit much. But we have eaten there several times in the past and had great food, so I won't hold it against them. I'll give them the benefit of the doubt because it was a holiday. We'll be back.

The server forgot our sausage and peppers but she brought them later and comp'd the mistake. We had 2 children and they were pleased with the selection as well. All in all, a good experience.

    We were there for Easter brunch and were disappointed they didn't offer ham on Easter as you did turkey on Thanksgiving. Also, we miss the bread the bruschetta used to come on as the hard bread it was on was a huge disappointment.

    The pasta, and salad, although plentiful, really lacked flavor. The sauce was bland on the baked ziti, and the rigatoni did not have much flavor either. My wife and I had the Caesar salad, which was fair, and did not have much bite in terms of either a garlic or anchovy flavor. The veal parmigiana was bitter. We had a large bill, over $120. for the four of us (no alcohol either). We did have the 3 Canoli dessert which my daughter raved about.- so one good item. We have been coming there for around 7 years. Each time has been a little less flavor. Texas in general seems to struggle with good Italian food, Having lived in the NE for a number of years, we have very far to go, and Buca certainty needs to pull up their flavor standards.

    We go here once or twice a year, first time at this location. The food was good. Service was decent. My only complaint is that I specifically asked for no booth when posting my reservation for my group of 14. Lo and behold, we were placed in a booth along a long wall. we asked the waiter to move us to one of the larger tables, but he told us they were reserved. We went for Sunday lunch and the place was dead. When we left, the other tables had still not been sat.

    I love the Southlake, TX, Buca du Beppo! The waitstaff is super attentative -- and kid-friendly. My 12-mo-old granddaughter loved our waiters! I rated the food as only "Good" this time. The chicken carbonara was bland and a bit dry. The lasagna was fabulous, though! The manager came to our table and offered to make another entree to replace the one that disappointed, and the gesture alone was enough to satisfy us. We WILL return again!

    It being my first time at this restaurant, I must say, it was a great experience. From the atmosphere to the food (especially), and the employees. Our waiter was great! He was very attentive. Everyone was so friendly. Im glad I decided to get together for my mom's birthday there. She too enjoyed it very much. It is a place that you can go for any occasion even if it is just to have lunch or dine. They definitely are not stingy on the food either. We all had pretty good portion size plates that I can say took care of dinner the next night. I will definitely be going back again!

    This place was amazing from head to toe it had a family feel with a cluttered look that worked for this place. The service was great when any server walked by they would check on you even if they weren't your particular sever. The food was outstanding very flavorful, however I will say this is not a place to go alone because the portions are made family size so if your by yourself expect a lot of food. I will definitely be back for more.

    We arrived at Buca at 7, we didn't have a reservation and they immediately told us it would be an 1hr 30min wait. We went to the bar to have a drink, mind there was an open table behind us for about 25 mins that for some reason we couldn't sit in. Then we decided to download the open table app and make a 730 reservation :) within 10 mins we had a table :). Idk if the girl in the front was just saying there was an 1hr and 30 min wait to turn people away or if she just didn't know how to time it. Needless to say we were happy with our reservations that got us in earlier than anticipated.

Pictures on the ceilings and walls along with the music definitely put you in the mood to feast on Italian fare. We had the large apple gorgonzola salad and split it with our table. We followed up with stuffed chicken proscuitto and baked rigatoni for everyone. Both dishes are good. We will return.

We had a reservation, but they had not set up our table until we arrived so we had to still wait 15 minutes for the table - 20 of us standing in the lobby. Food and drink service and checking out was super slow. Food was delicious. Wait staff was friendly and professional.

    Valentine reservation.Because of back problems requiring soft seating we spoke with Buca and they called us TWICE on 13th to confirm our res. and AGAIN Buca reassured and confirmed they would seat us in softer booth in bar. We arrived early and were told we could not sit in bar, and immediately taken by a manager to a HARD booth with a 1 " cushion. We had four in our party. Of the four entrees, three were room temperature.We are regular customers to Pittsburgh area Bucas and never had an bad experience. Will not be back to Southlake Buca as it is not worth the trip when management does not care, nor will we recommend. However, we continue to recommend the Pittsburgh Bucas, just avoid Southlake if you want a good dining experience.

    Poor service. Waited 30 minutes for appetizer and one drink refill during the hour and twenty minutes we waited before leaving. Had to find the manager to ask for our order in a to go container as we had other plans. Manager had been by to comp appetizer but then never came back to explain the long wait for the entrée. Waiter offered no answers and did not come by our table during the last half hour we waited. Got up to leave when the table next to us that arrived 45 minutes after us got the same entrée we ordered and we were still waiting. They did put our meal in a to go container and took care of the bill as we walked out. Now we have had excellent service here before so maybe it was just an off night.
