A bit overpriced (glass of wine at 12 when full bottle at grocery store is at 6 ? I know there must be a markup but this is really over the top) and the food quality is good, but not at that price point. Service very good and good ambiance.

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.

Not as good as it used to be. Prices have gone up while service level has gone down. We hadn't been in a while and remembered it fondly, but were a bit disappointed when we went back "for old time's sake".

Didn’t realize it was family style, but was disappointed when we ordered a large Quattro al Forno (serves 5) and there was less than 4 pieces of two of the items (3 Manicotti, 3 Canneloni, 6 ravioli and 6 stuffed shells)

Food was low on taste. One of the worst Italian food I have had anywhere. Felt cheated paying so much for food like that. The only items worth eating were the tiramisu and breads

Excellent food and service. We went on the 4th July so the place was packed out, however we were still really well looked after. We were then able to spill out to watch the fireworks. Great place for families.

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.

We had a nice experience. Food was delicious. Great ambiance. Very attentive waitperson. No issues with using pre-paid gift cards as well. Great place for a friends get together, but food is served family-style, so there is a lot. We had a group of 4 and split our offerings between a serving for 3 or 5, and still had leftovers.

Requested they write my parents names on birthday board, but that was forgotten. Our waiter was amazing! He made the entire birthday experience with his energy and funny jokes really a fun experience, he completely blended well with our group. Food & drinks were brought out at the right time, I was a bit surprised at the amount of pieces (not a lot) for the large mozzarella bread starter for the price, the large pasta bowls are HUGE. They say small bowls feed 2-3 but we say 4-5 ppl at least. We had way too much left over. The Fettuccini Alfredo was really good. The meatballs are H U G E. Parking is scares so plan to drop off at the door and loop around the block a few times or pay to park. It is a 2 story building with an elevator for those with difficulty walking up stairs, the walls are filled with cool pictures. There were a lot of Homecoming kids and celebrations. All in All, I recommend for large celebration and gatherings.

Food was great, huge portions, fun family atmosphere, didn’t have to shush my teenage boys. Service was incredibly slow. I appreciate a leisurely meal and not being rushed but this service was not good. One refill on soda and couldn’t ask for anything we needed because the server didn’t return often. Managed to ask for something we needed and never got it.

How can an Italian restaurant run out of olive oil? When we asked for bread and olive oil, we were told that the restaurant was "out of olive oil". Thinking there must have been a misunderstanding, we asked another server if it was true that the restaurant was out of olive oil, and she confirmed it. So we had our bread with balsamic vinegar only. Since they continued to serve the full menu (including our dinner), presumably Buca di Beppo only reheats previously-cooked food. Maybe that's why this Buca no longer walks customers through the kitchen?

We were so excited to go back to Buca. The food has always been great and the staff, so fun! This time we waited for 20 minutes for a table that we had reserved and the restaurant was basically empty. (5:45 on a weekday) The hostess could have cared less that we were there and though the waiter was very nice he struggled with 2 tables. Maybe he was new? No worries. The most concerning part was the food. Not good and way over priced. I am not sure if any prices were raised (doubt it) but the point is that you don’t notice the price when the food is good. When the food is bad you cringe at $29 noodles. Our total for 5 people was over $240 with no drinks and no dessert. WTH? We chose not to take anything home. Even though we have enjoyed Buca in the past this night was a deal breaker. If we are going to drive into Seattle for dinner it needs to be worth it. Lastly this was a birthday celebration that the waiter forgot to acknowledge. Bummer.
Ciao, Buca!
