Amazing!!! Everytime I come to this location I feel like family. For this reason, I will always recommend this location. The staff is helpful and polite. The food is delicious. George was probably the best part of the evening. She took our group picture, she helped us with everything we needed, and she was a pure delight!!

very nice staff, food was pretty good. Portions are always huge, even the small stuff. The calamari was the only thing that was not good. I guess that's what happens when you get seafood this far inland. Don't recommend. The saltimbocca was great. The kids liked their meals as well.

18 bucks for an appetizer that was work 9!!! Salad was good, spaghetti was watery and tasteless, a lil loaf of bread for an Italian restaurant... The meatball was the ONLY good thing, besides the service which was top shelf. Will not come back. BIG PORTIONS are not where its at.

We had a fun celebration "Retirement Dinner" for our dear friends who recently retired Monday night. We were promptly seated and our server immediately was there to take drink orders and explain the menu and specials. She was courteous and welcoming, making our dinner all the more enjoyable. We ordered a large antipasti salad and a large spaghetti & meatballs that always are 50% off Monday nights. Bread and olive oil were brought to our table after we ordered to enjoy while we waited for the salad. The salad was delicious and fresh, with plenty for the four of us. Our large bowl of spaghetti and meatballs was served piping hot and it was delicious as always. We then ordered the colossal sundae to finish off our meal, and indeed it did in fine--and bountiful--fashion! We look forward to our next dinner at Buca di Beppo in Westlake!

Everything was SPOT ON. The service, servers, hostess, staff and kitchen made this all such a memoriable event. It was myself and 4 others in my party. It was on Sunday 1/5/2020 arriving at 11:00 AM when we went so naturally we ordered the Sunday Meal which was their special. All I can say is WOW and what PERFECTION. This establishment gets an A+++++ rating from me. We did not leave there until about 2:30 PM. Very cozy pleasant atmosphere. A must go on your to do list.

We have only eaten at Buca di Beppo Westlake twice (in last 2 months) and it was perfection each time. We use OpenTable to make a reservation and it has always gone well. The service is impeccable and the food is fantastic! It is fun to eat "family style" at a restaurant!

We enjoyed a nice dinner at Buca di Beppo this past Monday evening. It was a belated birthday dinner for my partner and we enjoyed a carafe of red Sangria to start out the dinner. Our server pointed out three new entrees, and we chose the new shrimp pasta (small size), which was delicious and generously sized. We also enjoyed the small antipasti salad and freshly-baked bread. Being a birthday dinner, we thought a complimentary dessert would have been appropriate, but none was offered, so we ordered the Colossal sundae to share, which was delicious. Our server, while attentive and professional, was rather cold and distant--perhaps she was not feeling well as most of our servers previously have been warm and welcoming. Nonetheless, we look forward to our next dining experience at Buca Westlake!

In a word "Disgusting", but we were not sure if this was the ambiance they were going for. All the unoccupied tables were piled with dirty dishes and leftovers food. The carpets are blackened and matted. The servers was unfriendly. The apple gorgonzola salad was delicious but the meatballs were dry. Thus the ratings given.

We enjoyed a nice dinner at Buca this past Saturday night, redeeming a $20 coupon and a coupon for a free Sundae, making our dinner an excellent value. We ordered the Antipasto salad, which was served fresh and cold. Our entree, the shrimp Florentine pasta was delicious and enough was leftover when we were finished to take home to enjoy again at a future date. The gigantic sundae was sinfully good and a great way to top off a nice dinner. Our server was attentive and courteous and took good care of us. We always enjoy our dinners at Buca in Westlake and look forward to our next dining experience later this summer. Thank you!

We went here for Father’s Day, and it was a bad experience. Our reservations were for 6pm and we got seated within a few minutes, but it was all downhill from there. We didn’t end up getting our entrees until after 8pm (which made for a very long night with 3, 5, and 8 year old boys), and there were plenty of other annoyances leading up to that point. They had run out of milk for the kids to drink, our waitress brought our wine but didn’t uncork it so we had to flag down another waitress, the hostess ended up taking our order but never told our waitress, who proceeded to ask us for our order multiple times after we had told her we already gave it to someone else, and we had to ask multiple times for bread and then had to wait for awhile until they brought olive oil for it. One of the tables who had gotten seated after us were completely done eating before we even got our entrees. Another table near us had to wait awhile too, and they were overcharged for items they never even got and had to wait a long time for their check to get fixed. We were all laughing with each other about how terrible the service was that night. The hostess did end up comping one of our dishes since it too so long, but it was still a very expensive night out that was certainly not worth it. The salad and the bread were great, but the entrees were just ok and not worth the price. Obviously, we will not be going back.

Be prepared for Family Style dining - ordering large sharable plates. The wait staff on a very busy Mothers Day was very attentive, helpful, and good at getting us drinks and food. Mussels, Stuffed chicken were outstanding, pasta was good, Antipasto salad was great.

I don't ordinarily leave reviews and certainly not bad ones. However, our recent experience with Buca di Beppo it was not ordinary. We were not seated for our 6:00 reservation until nearly 7 p. M. Then, as our waitress took our drink order she mentioned that the kitchen was severely backed up due to to-go orders and that orders at the tables were taking around an hour. one of the members of our party had to leave to go home to get medication because they wouldn't be able to take it on time due to the delay. Having worked in restaurants, I find all of this unacceptable. You don't take a reservation that you can't fulfill in a timely manner. Moreover you don't take to go orders ahead of dine-in orders. Our bill of $181 should have been adjusted in order to acknowledge the terrible inconvenience. We spent nearly three hours at this restaurant due to their incompetence.

It seems that they were understaffed and not prepared for service. Reservations were overbooked which left many people waiting.

Service was not pleasant at all. Our waiter the moment he came by started complaining how busy it was, it was clear he was very overwhelmed. He was very nice and was doing his best. You could feel the tension in the room nearly every table had been waiting more than an hour for their food and some tables were starting to take it out on the wait staff.

We had ordered two dishes and it took nearly two hours for it to be brought to our table. We were seated around 5:40 and didn’t get the check and leave until 8PM.

Overall it seemed they were not prepared for Mother’s Day, the ambience of the place is nice however I won’t likely be returning for another holiday/occasion.

No water and no refills on our drinks. My coffee had a lot of grounds in the bottom of the cup. The young women who greeted us and showed us to our table were excellent. They were very nice, polite and friendly. Maybe we were expecting more from our waitress.

We had a fun and tasty dinner at Buca di Beppo this past Monday with friends of ours. We were seated immediately and our server arrived promptly and summarized specials and the menu, asking for drink orders. We all took advantage of the half-off spaghetti & meatballs and enjoyed a salad and garlic bread to go with the entree. The food arrived hot and nicely presented, and it was delicious. We look forward to our next visit soon! Thank you.

It is a good family experience, in that, selections are family style to share which is Buca's dining theme. We dined New Years Eve and the restaurant was rather lively which was actually a plus. I would have to say the antipasto salad was outstanding... you will not be disappointed by this choice!

We had a nice dinner at Buca di Beppo in Westlake after a long trip back from the Midwest last Friday evening. We were promptly seated and our server, Billy, was attentive and courteous. We enjoyed the chopped salad and a tasty chicken rigatoni entree, along with roasted brussels sprouts and prosciutto. We ordered the small portion size for our entree and took half of it home to enjoy again tonight--Bucca's portions always are generous and delicious. We look forward to another dinner soon at this Buca location.
