Buca for fun, good food and relaxation!

Buca is always a good choice for a full meal or something light. It is particularly good if you have a crowd and love their pizza and salads to go.

Love Buca. I've eaten at many of their locations in many cities. It is always excellent. Plan on taking a lot of food home. You can't finish.

This restaurant was a great surprise to our Italian family. Dishes are served family style in bowls for each to help themselves. The food was terrific and each dish was prepared very closely with the ingredients we would use at home. The decor is a real interesting sight with photos and bric a brac that will entertain for hours! That... More

We had a party of 8 inlcuding two younger kids, but the seating was not really suitable for even our small large party! I would not receommend this place for large groups. The service was OK but nothing special. The food is very expensive, even when you split a meal in two. I love Italian food and this was not... More

There are several pretentious restaurants in Seattle and Buca di Beppo scores by doing what it does best and has been doing for years. It serves up king-sized portions of delicious family style Italian favourites in a family style atmosphere for very reasonable prices and everybody leaves with a happy smile on their face. That's what I call a 5... More

A different type of restaurant for sure but worth a visit. Servings are very large but are meant for 2 or more people. The food is prepared fresh and is very tasty. The pasta and meatballs were outstanding as well as the seafood themed dishes. They have some very large tables and can easily accommodate a large group. It does... More

We have been to Buca di Beppo several times over the years, but it had been awhile since we'd had dinner there. I suddenly got a desire to go back for dinner, so we went. Afterward I wished we had gone somewhere else. It was a lot of money for the food, which came out to the table barely warm.... More

We have been to other restaurants in this chain and this one was as consistently good as the others. The food, served family style, is very tasty and the portions are huge. Everything was served hot and tasted very fresh. The waitataff was excellent and readily available without hovering. The decor is fascinating...all sorts of pictures and items on the... More

We showed up just before closing time after our flight from SFO and sat in the bar area to eat dinner. The whole experience was a delight. The Chicken Saltimbocca was excellent and made even better by the bottle of Chianti. Service was friendly and attentive. We had a leisurely dinner and never felt rushed to leave. I'm looking forward... More
