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.

It was our first time at the Seattle Buca di Beppo. Like the other ones the food is good, the portion size huge and the service excellent. My favorite was the Shrimp Fra Diavolo penne, loved it!! Pasta not overcooked, delicious sauce. They also deliver.

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
