We always go to Buca di Beppo for our adult daughters' birthdays. The restaurant is kitschy to the max, with tons of photographs and Italian memorabilia everywhere. Everything is served family style, which means you get a LOT of food. Favorites are the Caesar Salad and the White Sangria. All the family have their own favorites for entrees, but the... More

My sister-in-law and her husband took us here, so am at a loss as to exact location, but it is in not very trendy area in Seattle. However, it is more than worth the trip. Multi-roomed, and loaded with old Italian memorabilia, and an atmosphere that says "Mama Leoni's" all over the place. The quantities served are so large that... More

Nice atmosphere, great service and the Caesar salad was very good. Unfortunately, the most basic of dishes was a big disappointment. The spaghetti was very overlooked (pulled out of a big-batch pot that just sits on the stove?). It's mushy, starchy, and pasty flavor ruined the dish. The meatballs were ok, but could do with some spicing up to boost... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside it is warm and inviting with different rooms giving it a cozy atmosphere. You order platters of food for everyone to share, and they give you healthy portions so be hungry when you go there! Service is good, food is good and served nice and hot to your table.... More

For someone traveling alone, the take out was offered in containers that allowed reheating. The food was amazing and I would recommend this location.

This meal was a group meal in which the staff was definitely more attentive than usual for a group meal. The food was definitely enjoyable and the staff made this experience much more pleasant. The restaurant is much larger than it looks and accommodates large groups easily and there appeared to be plenty of staff to ensure quick service for... More

Attended Buca following a WMEA state president's tour on the Ride the Ducks. We had around 60 in our party and they did a great job to accommodate our ensemble. The first issue was that one of the Ducks was about 40 minutes late. So we had to later than the first group. They were wonderful about making sure the... More

I've eaten at Buca's in a couple of cities. You know what you are going to get, it's all cooked to the same standard and taste. They do however have some good dishes, tasty salads and great sized portions. I wouldn't actively seek out this restaurant but am more than happy to visit when passing.

Started going here with my law school classmates. They give you a lot of food, but it's bland and not authentic Italian. Parking can be a pain.
