Went to the restaurant with a group of 27 high school choir students. Food was very good and service was top notch. The servers were friendly and fast. Food was served quick and hot. Would definitely go back.

In Seattle on business and enjoyed a meal with 8 colleagues. The things that I will remember will be the warm friendly service and the huge portions. You may want to consider sharing! I have included a picture of the bruschetta to give you an idea! My colleagues enjoyed the pizzas.

Had a Groupon for $20 worth of food for $10 so I headed over for lunch. I ordered the chicken Parmesan with fettuccine Alfredo. I noticed that bread was on the menu for $5 extra (seriously?). So, no bread. The restaurant was pretty empty which I thought was weird because their neighbor was packed for lunch. Anyway, after waiting forever... More

We enjoyed taking the whole family to Buca di Beppo for dinner. The family style portions were ample for all of our appetites and delicious too. They know how to handle a big table and the staff there was great. I heard that there's a special booth right in the kitchen upon request. That would be a great experience to... More

Buca is a place you go when you want reliably good Italian food in a casual atmosphere. The portions are huge, great for sharing, and their food is delicious. My only knock would be that we were seated near families with little kids who were using loud video games at the table. It would have been nice if the restaurant... More

Another great meal at a Buca di Beppo; consistently a worthwhile experience. The hearty portions, great service, good drinks, fun atmosphere, and kitschy Italian American stereotype charm makes dining at any of their restaurants worth it.

This little restaurant is sort of tucked into a corner, and I suppose if you have a window seat (there aren't many) you might have a view of the lake. The overall ambience is...well, is "Italian restaurant" an ambience? There's music playing in the background, people are talking, lighting is dimmed, lots of pictures and kitsch on the walls. I...
