I was in the mood for Italian, so we stopped here. Only reason was, I noticed it driving by. Ended up being a great choice!. It is a traditional Italian, all servings are meant for multiple people. 4 of us had a small alfredo & a small spaghetti. We wanted a lasagna, but they were out, our server said it... More

If you ever been to a Buca di Beppo you know what to expect. And this Seattle one did not disappointed us. Large portions to share, lots of garlic (unfortunatelly) but fair price and good service.

Been to several Buca's several times, and each one is consistent and offers great service. Highly recommend the kitchen table. Interesting to see the different dishes leave the kitchen, and to see the passion and commitment of the chef(s).

When I got into the restaurant, I saw an over-saturated decoration, and the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" came up to my mind, but when I noticed the decoration is from South Italy, that made so much sense. The waiter asked us to follow him to go directly to our table, but first, he took us to the kitchen,... More

As a business traveler, I am always looking for new places to eat in Seattle, WA. I was hungry for down-home Italian and so I tried Buca di Beppo on 9th. There were three of us and the wait at 7pm was 30 minutes, so we chose to eat in the bar. The service was mediocre. Not a lot of... More

Our family celebrated a birthday party at Buca Di Beppo and it seems like that is the purpose of the venue since bday songs were sung at nearby tables every few minutes. The food was ok and came in huge family style portions. I've been to this location years ago and the same décor is hanging on the walls, it's... More

Dinner at this restaurant was expensive and disappointing. We ordered the veal marsala and baked ziti. The veal didn't have any marsala flavor, and the sauce was lumpy and too sweet. The baked ziti was good. When the waiters took our order, they kept complimenting the food and the portions, which weren't really as large as they said they were... More
