Good Fun Experience

I have been to a Buca di Beppo before in the Chicago area so when I drove by this one I had to try it. First, you have to set your expectations, this isn’t a gourmet Italian restaurant, it is a fun casual place that serves good comfort Italian food. We started with a side of the meatballs, each... read more

After talking up this restaurant with my family from a previous visit a couple years ago, expectations may have been heightened. Overall, during my last visit to Seattle it seems as though prices have skyrocketed with the minimum wage increase. This location is very hard to get to with all the road construction. I felt the meal was overpriced and... More

My wife and I wanted to share a small pepperoni pizza and that is exactly what we got. The pizza was pretty good, the pepperoni was spicy and very tasty. The crust and sauce was decent, nothing special but it tasted fine. The problem was price...$20.00 for a small pizza??? Come on Buca. Every business needs to make a profit,... More

My wife and I were in town before taking a cruise. We were staying just down the street and walked over to this quaint little place. The staff was terrific and the atmosphere was just delightful... an old fashioned feeling, if you will. The food was delicious, but be careful, one serving will serve at least 2, maybe three! We...

If you love the smell, and taste, of authentic garlicky Italian food chased by rich, red wine, this is your spot for a tableful of friends!

No matter how much you starve yourself before hand, you will still be taking food home with you. Bucca serves "Family Style", which is like having your little italian grandmother walking around the table refilling your plate and coaxing "manga, manga". The white Sangria.... yum! I don't think they even know HOW to make anything NOT good... great atmosphere!

This is a "family" restaurant where you order portions for 2 people or 4 people So 4 of us order 4 dishes and the bill including a beer for each one of us was $145.00- The calamari was terrible , salad was great, chicken was good but pasta needed more sauce. And you have to pay for bread...................

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
