Your have to love this place.

No it does not offer the finest or most unusual Italian fare, but the ambience is simply terrific. We've eaten and two Buca di Beppo's and enjoyed both--with one exception. Service both in Frisco and Dallas is frustratingly slow. The wait staff does not seem to be well trained and well managed in... read more

I never knew they had a table in the kitchen area. It makes the dinner experience that much more fun. The entire kitchen staff is engaging, not put off. The food is excellent. My wife and I LOVE the chicken parmigiana, the bianco pizza and those HUGE meatballs. We normally have enough for a second dinner too.

I made reservations for 4 for Christmas dinner beginning of November. We arrived prior to our time. We had 2 elderly women with us. Right off we were told it would be 30-35 mins until we are seated. That is 30-35 minutes after our reservation time. So here we were with no place for the elderly to sit nor any... More

Fantastic, excellent, phenomenal, awesome.... mere adjectives cannot describe! When you eat here you HAVE to reserve a seat in the kitchen! If you're lucky, you'll be right at the chef's area, and it will be an experience you'll never forget! My wife and I had the veal parmigiana and ravioli, and finished with a desert of tiramisu. Well worth the... More

We reserved a private room with a round table for a party of 12. This being a special birthday for a family member, we called two additional times to confirm the time, room, etc. Upon arrival we found the room for our party of 12 was not available. It seems this room can only be reserved for 5 pm or... More

We always enjoy a real delicious and satisfying dinner at Buca di beppo. After trying several Italian restaurants,we discovered that our favorite dishes are the best at Buca. If you enjoy eating Veal Picasa you will definitely be satisfied with their dish. Great wine selection and great atmosphere.

This place is amazing!! It's family style so what u order is placed in the middle and everyone gets a portion. Every time we go there we get lots so we have food to take home. Very authentic Italian feel.

Been there a few times. Kind of like going to Cheesecake factory. Giant portions of average food. Good if you want to overeat but I would prefer to find something tastier and healthier somewhere else. Pasta, Bread, lots of Carbs.

Great meatballs...but huge! Small family style portion is still huge. Service was great. It would be great if they offered small portions too for those of us who just don't eat much. The meat sauce had a nice flavor. So much easier to come here to eat than to make the sauce from scratch.
