Went here for Valentine’s Day and had a great time with my girlfriend.
The service was pretty good and overall it was nice.
We ordered a pizza and it was good,
But if I go back then I am going to order pasta instead because I think they make
That better.

We came up for Valentine’s Day dinner. Everyone was very friendly, professional and courteous. The food, however, was less impressive. The lasagna was tasteless and so disappointing as I had my heart set on some good lasagna.

We arrived for a reservation 10 min early and host said we will seat you now and to step to side and he would get to us. A minute later said it is too chaotic and he would seat us closer to our reservation time. All while seating walk-ins with no reservation. We were the only ones there at host stand when we arrived.

We got seated and ordered shortly thereafter. Ordered salad, entree, garlic bread, and a kids spaghetti with meat sauce. 30 min later we received kids pasta x 2. One with marinara and another with meat sauce. Another 20 minutes later we received our salad. 15 min later the garlic bread came and then the long wait for our entree. 40 minutes. The waiter came by our table and said man it had been awhile but it’s coming right out. He said that 3 times. He made a joke that you have been here so long all your ice melted in your drink. Not funny...

The bill comes and he charged us for two kids pasta. Only one child. So all in all it was not a great experience. I have been to Buca several times but this experience will keep us from coming back.

Our service was completely poor! My BF asked for a glass of wine. He received it 45 minutes later after talking to the manager. We sat and waited 1 hour & 45 min before out food was served and that was also after we got the manager involved. We received the wrong pizza after waiting that long. This pizza was for our kids, too & they waited that long and never got to eat it. Our waitress was slow & never refilled our waters. This was my birthday celebration & New Years with my family & friends. I made reservations well in advance. We will not suggest this restaurant to anyone & will not return. The worst service we’ve ever had dining out!

It was my 40th birthday celebration dinner with friends. We were all excited for the evening and to start the night off we planned dinner at Buca di Beppo for a group of 10. We had a nice area, but the service and food was less than what should be expected, even for a busy night. They forgot the birthday table sign and when reminded still never brought it. The server nice enough but not attentive and seemed to be gone more than he was there. We saw random staff more than we saw him. One of the wait staff help, was rude to one of my guests when they asked for a soda refill. Some of our guests finished their entrees before others even got their appetizers. My food came out 15 minutes after the rest of my group was almost finished eating. Our entrees were not very good and usually the food is outstanding. It was really a disappointing evening to such a special day for me.

This used to be place to go with a group and have a good time. Now, not so much!!

We arrived on Saturday evening with our group of 9 and were told after we ordered our drinks that they, the " .. Italian Restaurant", were out of, guess what, Meat Balls and Lasagna.

The whole place was slammed and the service was overwhelmed. Service was slow and even after we had finished our meal and the side room we were seated in was virtually empty our dirty dishes remained for a very long time. When our waiter, and the manager, finally returned and offered to comp some desserts to make up for the Meat Ball/Lasagna fiasco some of our group optioned to 'take a dessert home' but even after that was delivered it became impossible to 1) get a bill presented and 2) pay the bill. No waiter, no body at the cashier station.

All in all it was a very poor 2 1/2 hour experience and a disappointment to find a place that has been a Seattle, as well as national chain for many years to have been run so poorly at the height of the holiday season.

We ate at Buca di Beppo for our Christmas dinner with our kids. It was good, they were very busy due to the holiday but we were able to have our meal and dessert within a reasonable time period. We were near the Pope room upstairs. The location of the restaurant is not far from the Space Needle.

We went for Christmas dinner. We didn’t know there would be a shortened menu, so none of the things we wanted to order were available. As it was Christmas, we decided to stay because we weren’t sure we’d find another restaurant where we could eat.
The food was so tasteless, my six year old wouldn’t even eat the cheese pizza. My fettuccine was awful. My eight year old enjoyed his plain pasta with salt and butter, so there was that.
Our waiter was excellent. He tried to keep us engaged and he was kind to the boys. We didn’t make a fuss because the poor guy was working on Christmas, but we won’t be returning.

Highly recommend the spicy shrimp dishes, both the appetizer and the pasta meal. We made the mistake of not ordering the first time we were asked and it took awhile for the waitress to return. When we were finally able to order we asked for our complimentary bread and never received it. It took about 20 minutes between the time we FINISHED the appetizer to when we received the main courses. We were done eating and sat there for another 15 minutes before anyone noticed us. If we weren’t honest people they would have eaten a $115 bill.
Food is great though.

This was my first time to the restaurant. I am basing it on Thanksgiving Day. The food came out quickly, and out server was really trying with all the tables she had. I liked all the pictures on the wall, but it was really dim in the restaurant for 2pm. For the price for three people, we only received a cereal sized bowl of mashed potatoes. The green beans were crunchy which I liked, but little flavor. The turkey and stuffing had a good flavor. The cranberries had a strange after taste. The pumpkin pie filling was very good. I would try Buca on a normal night, for Italian food to compare.

Our group of 6 was very disappointed in the service. We had a reservation, but it took about 15 minutes to seat us. The waiter took a long time to greet us, and then a long time in bringing water, then in bringing drinks, then in taking our order. And then he sorta disappeared. Another person took over. He knocked a glass of water on the table that spilled all over, including on to my granddaughter. They gave us a pile of napkins to wipe it up ourselves. We had a plate of garlic bread on a stand next to our table, which was full of plates. Another waiter, with no explanation or comment, pushed the plate of bread on to the crowded table and took the stand. Service was incredibly slow and unpleasant. Food was good. I love Buca di Beppo, but I’m not sure any of us will go back.

I had been sent a birthday coupon unsolicited by the restaurant, so I was able to enjoy a family-style dining experience for 4 using the small orders of a salad, two entrees, and a shared dessert. That fed us all amply without having to worry about a leftover box. The dining room immediately left of the host station at the front offers a limited view of the lake, which made for a nice ambiance and being open to the outside tampered the noise level. Parking can be a challenge.

Very strange menu. You have to order in multiples of 3 or 5. This is probably okay as they provide takeout boxes but what is not okay is their also “strange,” for lack of a better word, service. While we were still eating, we were asked if we wanted a takeout box, dessert, AND the check. It felt like a fast food restaurant. Again, they asked us this while we were still eating and clearly had plenty of food on our plates. And no, this was probably only ten minutes after they brought us our food and no, the restaurant was not awfully busy—several tables around us were empty. Oh and did I mention they brought us the wrong food? Won’t recommend and won’t be back.
