Disappointing

I have eaten at this chain on the other side of the city before and the food was great. It's been a while since I've been in SLC and thought we'd stay and eat downtown. Shortly after we ordered they sat a 'birthday party' next to us, when much of the place was empty. Then our lasagna came. The... read more

I have been here twice with large groups. The food is served family style and is very basic. I can't say it is good as the spaghetti was service with very little sauce and the chicken breast was stringy. The ambience is nice be it is good for large groups. I would not come here for a family dinner or... More

While in Utah for a Dental conference my Dentist made reservations at Buca Di Beppo for my Birthday. We had to walk several miles from our hotel but by the time all nine of us made it to the Restaurant we knew it would be well worth the walk! From the minute the door opens and you get a large...

We went to Buca with friends and our host asked whether we'd like to tour the kitchen. Yes! Next time we're there, we'll reserve the chef's table for 4 in the kitchen - didn't even know it was there! The food was great, as always, but service was pretty slow. It was a busy Saturday night and we didn't have... More

Every year my daughter has a cheer competition in SLC and we make it a point to go to Buca di Beppo!! We were lucky enough to catch their 4 for $40 deal again. The staff is friendly and I love the decor. Our favorite is the baked ziti, caesar salad and garlic bread. Highly recommend.

They were not busy when we arrived at 5:45pm but it took over10 minutes to be seated. Then the temperature was so cold we needed to move to another table, where it was still cold (much warmer outside). We are skiers but you should not need ski clothes for dinner. The waiter was friendly but obviously not trained. He did... More

As a large party of young singers, their parents, and their director (me) totaling 22, we sought out a place that could accommodate us for a celebratory lunch. One of the singer's moms found Buca di Beppo, and it proved up to the task! We had our own room upstairs, where the adults shared a large table and the kids... More

The food was very good, but far to much. The two of us could have done with only one portion and that would even have been to much. Staff is very friendly and it is easy to reach.
