Good food – The food is delicious, but everytime I have been there 5+ times, I have always gotten bad service, the food comes out wrong, or the waiter is no where to be seen, ao now I just get takeout
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant. – In Short
Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
Best Italian Restaurant & Most Original! – What an experience! I felt like I knew what it was like to be in old Italy! It is very popular on the weekend evenings, and there was an appx. 30 min. wait, so the hostess was passing out free appetizers while we waited (that in itself was a first for me at any restaurant). The nostalgic and original ambience really takes you away to another place and time and is only surpassed by the astounding taste and quality of the food! It was so delicious! A perfect gourmet meal for sure. Unbelievable. The portions really are huge and meant for sharing so it is recommended to get several different items and everyone can share. I went with my husband and child but I am sure this would be a great place for groups. My 4 year old enjoyed it as well and the waitstaff did try to keep him entertained. It is not a stuffy atmosphere so it's not a big deal to have an energetic child.
this place has it all: best italian food, lovely ambience, and a quaint wine bar. i have never tried such great italian food anywhere - and the portions are family-size meaning HUGE. the desserts are equally superb. the tiramisu is a nice generous helping with a hint of rum, but nevertheless, it satisfies the palette as well as the succulent cannollis. i love how they personalize your dining experience by walking you through their kitchen and giving you a tour of the quaint restaurant. the decors are amazing: literally thousands of little treasures, trinkets and "odds-and-ends" adorning every inch of the walls. for wine lovers try the house wine or chiantis. the staff was friendly and accomodating. great place to have a bday dinner. truly an enjoyable dining experience~!*
Best- Real Italian food. Fantastic customer service! Buca encourages families of all sizes and especially those LOUD Italian folks to make you feel like FAMILIA (family)!! – The beautiful flowers on the flower boxes by the front door give you the feeling that this place gives only the best. The host staff is friendly and helpful. Each server greets you and cares for you as their own table, so even if your server has several other tables, you never a lack in service. The food, oh my gosh the food is unreal!! It is THE BEST ITALIAN food in the state of Texas. The marinara sauce is made fresh every day!! The servings are meant to be shared, and that's an understatement!! The atmosphere is so layed back, you really feel like your at Christmas dinner with a real Italian Family in Italy! You truely feel like a part of the familia when you leave. After you gather your shopping bags (all the left over food) you are almost bombarded by the "Thank you"s and "Come Back and See Us Soon"s; I have to tell you that this is great- to actually be thanked for dinning here. We should be thanking Buca Di Beppo! Great food, Great service, Great feeling of familia!! HIGHLY RECCOMENDED This place is worth every penny!!
Too Loud! – If you are looking for a place to talk to the people next to you (in a normal "12-inch rule" voice), this is NOT the place for you! It is soooooo loud. The menu is written on the walls in the specific rooms (each room symbolizes something different - for example, the vineyeard has vines/grapes on the ceiling) and if you are in the wrong seat, it is difficult to see the menu.
Food - pizza is very very thin; it is like crackers. The pizza with the meat on it looks like oil was dumped on top.
I don't think it is that great of an Italian restaurant. The atmosphere is great, but the food is not.
Great Food! – Freshness of the food is amazing there, if you really looking for italian food i say check that place out!!
