Food was average. Nothing special. Very little taste. Server had to be flagged down a number of times as he was covering many tables at a time. Could use more servers.

Service was awful- waitstaff didn’t approach table for at least 15mins after we sat down. Masks worn inappropriately, food was incredibly slow (2 tables sat after us and were leaving by the time we actually got food) Food was super greasy. We won’t be back.

Our waiter even though very friendly, was very inattentive.
The restaurant was not busy.
He did not clear our appetizer plates, and we sat with dirty plates in front of us for at least a half an hour.
We did not see him after he dropped our appetizers off.
The next time we saw him was a half an hour later when he dropped off our dinner, and he had to juggle clearing dirty dishes, and serving our dinners.
It was my daughters birthday, and I booked the restaurant because they make a big deal about singing happy birthday.
Our waiter brought a scoop of ice cream over and sat it in front of my daughter, no song, so we had to ask if she could be sung to.
Other people were celebrating all around us, and were all being sung to. They had other waiters, that I guess cared about their customers more.
Just very disappointed with our experience.

It took 40 minutes to get appetizers and we had to ask to even order our main course, the main course took so long we actually had them box it up to go because it got so late. We didn’t get refills on the drinks after asking for them. The table next to us had similar issues. We were of course understanding if the kitchen was slow or they were short staffed, but the waiter brushed off our concerns and didn’t apologize.

Valentine’s Day. They were over booked and we for our reservation did not get our food until 10 pm. Super cold and it took about 45 min to get water after we were seated. The food once we got it hours after we had been seated was ok. This was not a great Valentine’s Day date plus we missed reservations to play mini golf due to us not eating in the time frame we planned.

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.
