Very polite staff including our waiter, however, he apparently was stretched thin in that basic service was extremely slow!!! Quality of food was good, but not for the value charged! Apparently prices have gone up as the number of available seats have gone down.
Too many other options for better value of Italian food in the area!!!

First time dining at Buca de Beppo. Honestly, was expecting a “chain restaurant “ dining experience.
Was pleasantly surprised with the quality of food. Couldn’t believe the enormous portions. Had a reasonably priced, wonderful Barbera wine, don’t really find those on too many wine lists.
Atmosphere was Italian kitschy, but enjoyable and our waittress was very pleasant.
All in all, a very enjoyable dining experience. We will be back!

The only negative would be the wait. The Purpose of the reservation is to be ready to eat at the time the reservation is at. I understand that it is a holiday but the Hostess told us that It was about a 15 minute delay which was okay! However My reservation was for 8:15pm and we didn’t get sat until 9:20pm. Which was weird because people who went in after us got seated in a shorter amount of time... other than that, food was great, server was amazing and definitely coming back.. let’s just hope its not that long of a wait again.

The food was amazing as always, but our server not so much. He took a very long time getting around to our table and he kept having to apologize over and over for the lack of not doing something. we had to ask for bread that was supposed to come with our meal multiple times. and when we asked for our ticket it was wrong and took about 20 minutes for him to get it straightened out. i also requested that there was a birthday celebration that evening but nothing was ever said or done about it.

Don’t understand the appeal of this place. Food is mediocre and way overpriced. Too much garlic, not nearly enough other flavors. Sunday “Sugo” “bolognese” is marinara with meat. Decor is way over the top.

Avoid this place. There are much better Italian places around The Woodlands.

I reserved a table for three and met my out of state guests for a chance to have a nice meal and conversation. We were seated next to a table for about twenty celebrating a middle aged man's birthday. The review chart on this page asked about noise. The loudest description you allowed was "Energetic." What we endured was to Energetic was like comparing a fire cracker to a howitzer. By yelling at the top of our lungs we were barely able to give our order to the waiter. Conversation across the table required shouting. This painful racket lasted our entire time there and was still going strong when we left. I felt like a fool for having brought my friends there.

Best for larger family gatherings. We ordered the trio appetizer, which included fried cheese, fried macaroni and cheese, and calamari. Fried mac/cheese was the best of the three. The calamari was very greasy. For the main course we had chicken parmesan and spaghetti and meatballs. Chicken parm was not very seasoned and relatively very bland. Chicken was moist and not overcooked. Meatballs were excellent. I felt for two adults and two kids that it was relatively more expensive than most restaurant due to the family style dining.

This was our first time ever eating out for Christmas 🎄 and my family LOVED it! The noise level was high due to it being Christmas but that was to be expected. The food was so delicious and tasted homemade. The service was impeccable. The value was so great! To feed 3 people from one plate! Wow! That never happens!

The food quality at Buca seems to have declined quite a bit from the last time we ate here. Our salad was pretty tasteless and several of the dishes resembled something that came from the microwave. Our server was friendly, but never returned to check in on the table or refill our wine. I’d give them some leeway considering this was Christmas Eve, and they were busy. But I don’t think we’ll be returning anytime soon.

It was so fun to see all the food being prepared and being shown each dish being sent to tables. I have a new appreciation for everything that goes on behind the scene.
