Food is very good here. Have been for dinner, but prefer lunch (I hate sharing food). Sometimes, it seems to take longer for food than I think it should, but you are getting quality. This was the place that got me to stop ordering tea with lunch (for $2.75, they better be making it one glass at a time). Have... More

Visited on a very busy Valentines night. We had a reservation and were seated within 5 minutes of our designated time. The meals are designated for 2 or 4 people served as a family style meal. We decided to each get our own meal and take home left-overs. We started with a very nice bottle of wine and an appetizer... More

Went for a birthday dinner with my wife. Great food and great place. It is bit pricey for 2 people but great for family as all their dishes are for made for family size. We made a reservation otherwise it could have taken us 1 hour on Saturday evening.

Used to enjoy eating here often. Food quality is definitely on downhill slide. Lasagna looks like was made a week ago with crummy supermarket no-boil noodles. Most brown and soggy. Big portions but very overpriced. Drinks even more of a rip. Come hungry, leave frustrated. Look elsewhere for real Italian. All you get here is a gimmick and poorly prepared... More

1st time at a Buca di Beppo, and was pleasantly surprised. Met some friends there, started with some good drinks. Waiter supplied fresh bread that was delicious, decided we didn't even need an appetizer. The meals are "Family Style", we order 1 large meal, and it was perfect for us 4 adults. The food was very good, great menu selection,... More

First visit to Buca. They were overrun on Christmas Day. Reservations didn't avoid long wait in overpacked entry. We found much of what is said on other reviews to be true...tight seating, extremely loud, good staff and a nice variety on the menu. However food quality is very average, and pricing is high for the portions.

Went with family and friends. We always get full after eating here. Eggplant Parmesan was really tasty. Enjoyed pasta with the hot olive oil. Would definitely go back for more good food.

We have visited the Buca in Frisco numerous times over the past 5 years. The last 2 times we have gone in the past 6 months the food was not nearly as good as it use to be. Our favorite dish was the Chicken Marsala, just the right flavor, but now it was so bland we could not even finish... More

Buca di Beppo sells itself on the basis of family-style meals. In other words, they put a lot of food in front of you and you help yourself from a common dish. I have nothing against this because that's how many family restaurants function in Italy. Unfortunately the food wasn't really all that good. So-so calamari, strange bruschetta served in... More
