Made reservation online with specific mention that this was family celebration for 14-year old birthday. Told host as well discretely so that the cake and singing would be a surprise. Server forgot. Prompting server would have embarrassed my teenager. Overall, this was very overpriced for average food quality and below average service. I recommend you take your business to local... More

When friends and I go to Dallas we always plan a meal here. Love the family style service. We order several things and then all eat off it. The food is good and we always have lots of laughs. The atmosphere is perfect and the different rooms are fun.

Our family had a big reunion and they are able to accommodate large groups which we love. We had a great time ordering so many dishes because of the large portions we were able to share the portions. The food was excellent.

This place is awesome. It has that traditionally Italian-basement feel, and a family-style menu. Starts you off with delicious bread, and a friendly atmosphere. Try the bruschetta as an appetizer, and the Shrimp Fra Diavolo (but be careful...its super spicy!). Serves lunch and dinner, and has a full bar.

If you like Italian, this is for you. You feel like family as you are escorted through the kitchen before you are seated.

Buca di Beppo is a fun place to grab a bite. You get to walk through the kitchen on the way in, which is neat. The menu is extensive, and items are served family style, in large portions. Our waiter was attentive and provided great service. Not gourmet by any means, but a satisfying meal in a fun atmosphere.

Maybe my expectations were too high. I have heard about this place for years but had never eaten there. Now that I have, I can honestly say I will NEVER eat there again. I can overlook the laboriously tacky decor. I get that it is suppose to resemble someone's basement from the 50's but the tacky ceramics and old black... More

Such a cute place with disappointing food and service! We are not big on chains but at least expected Olive Garden quality which we did not get. Server was uninterested and food bland and tasteless. Music was great.

Super interesting decor and outstanding food. The garlic bread, stuffed mushrooms and caprese salad for appetizers could have comprised entire meal. Food very fresh and flavorful. My entree, lemon chicken with rosemary roast potatoes, was outstanding. Festive, fun atmosphere. Excellent service. Prices are perhaps a little on the high side.

Have been eating at Buca for years. Far from authentic. Prices are almost twice what you would pay elsewhere. You pay for the chintzy ambience, I suppose. It's certainly not the service. Still, there are some items that I enjoy there, namely the Apple Gorgonzola Salad. At $30 for what is essentially a chopped up head of iceberg lettuce, one... More
