This is a fun, casual restaurant and I thought the food was very good, esp the veal saltimboca. Two adults and a kid, we ordered the small veal, the small apple and Gorgonzola salad, and a small penne in pesto cream with broccoli. We ate maybe ⅔ of the salad, a ⅓ of the pasta and ⅔ of the veal.... More

We must have been asked "Have you been here before?" three times before ordering - that's because the answer is important. The "small" portion can easily feed two people - but it may not be what you expect. As my wife repeatedly told me - this restaurant is meant for large parties. We ordered a small saltimbocca for the two... More

We chose Buca di Beppo because it was in close proximity to our hotel and I'd eaten there before in San Diego. The food was plentiful and tasty, service was quick as well. Casual dining for a good price.

Thanksgiving in Seattle is not a great place when you are visiting and not really into the traditional turkey meal. Most restaurants were shut but we stumbled on Buca di Beppo and it turned out to be very enjoyable. Restaurant was packed and pleasantly noisy and busy. It was real and friendly. Great serving staff. Food great and in huge... More

We have met with friends here a couple of times and now have made it an annual kind of thing. We pre-ordered a family-style of dinner and had about 21 people in our group. We were seated in a nice location so we could be somewhat away from the main crowd---which is what we wanted. We all had a great... More

Fast service and great food. The restaurant is always rather loud, but the food is worth it. We had spaghetti and meatballs, baked rigatoni, and lemon chicken with capers. Superb!

Was staying for a couple of nights for business and only ate out for dinner once. The place was buzzing pretty good when I got there at dinner time. I ordered the ravioli, which was delicious. Food came as ordered. But the server, was a complete jerk. I was a party of 1 so maybe not a big ticket/tip candidate,... More
