Good solid Pasta meal to take out for my track team

We ordered ahead and the meal was ready to be picked up to feed 30! It was a little expensive but the quality and service was good.

The prices were over average. The main course of Chicken limone was exceptional good tasting. The salads and pasta were very average. Cheese cake dessert was awesome. Alcoholic drinks were pricey. Atmosphere was fine. Three servers for all of us worked fine. A early dinner before 5 pm is highly recommended otherwise the prices are much higher. This event was... More

My husband and I went to Buca di Beppo on New Years Eve because it had great reviews and was very close to our hotel (within walking distance) prior to the New Years Eve celebrations at the Space Needle. Upon entering the restaurant, the staff were very welcoming and the restaurant was hopping with excitement. Our table was not ready... More

I am traumatized by the our disastrous dinner I booked for our family. Booked a party for 25 people for a celebration of life family dinner. They had one server on for us who also had another section. I am so embarrassed for the events that took place. I did not think it would be the greatest decision but I... More

Go here for reasonably priced, large, chain restaurant Italian meals. The staff is good, not outstanding. The restaurant is huge, but divided into rooms so it feels cozy enough. It would be an excellent place for a large family or business lunch or dinner.

If you love Italian (like I do) then this place is for you. Call your friends that really like good food and tell them you're having a party at a place called Buca Di Beppo's. Next call Buca's and tell them you want to reserve one of their special rooms (get the Pope room if you can). Then get ready... More

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
