“Probably the best Italian food in the area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

Large portions, food is decent. It's not going to be the best you ever had, but it will be ok - it's a chain, but probably your best bet for Italian in the area (this was recommended by the hotel staff at the Courtyard Mariott nearby, and my cousin who works in the area - and is from the Northeast - said it was the best you could do for Italian food in Austin).

“One or two people, prepare for leftovers...........”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

I have been sampling great food from various Bucas de Beppo for 15 years. The food quality is almost always at least "very good". While I get the concept and it is working for most people, or they would have changed it by now, know that a "small" order of a dish is enough for two to four people.

Everything I have ordered is super tasty esp. the meat ravioli and the frutti de mare pasta. Salads are great too. And the portions are generous. So if you have a party of at least two, order the small size.....for four to six, go for large and enjoy! Mangia!!!!

“Good Italian served family style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

The service was very good and the atmosphere was interesting. There was a varied menu with something for everyone. The portions are either small serving 2 to 3. The large portions are large enough for 4 to 6 people. The food was served hot and was quite good.

“Good, friendly and overall nice experience”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

It feels good when you enter a restaurant for a first time and the staff shows you the kitchen. The place is very cosy, Italian style and the decoration on the wall is impressive. The food is just ok though not really comparable with pasta's you get in Italy... But the overall experience was nice. Glad I tried this. I may come back one day.
