Buca di Beppo - Southlake Ratings and Reviews
Gone downhill FAST!
Worst birthday experience ever! Arrived at 6:45 to a hot and stuffy environment that strongly smelled of sewage! Though our food and drink order was taken promptly, our food didn't arrive until 8:15!!! That's an hour and a half later!!! No apologies nor comps were offered for such poor service. In fact, we were overcharged immensely in things such as double tipping, items not ordered, miscalculations and our not even our coupons were honored!!! Unacceptable!! We couldn't get out of there fast enough and I will be discontinuing my traditional birthday dinner here effective immediately.
1:15 hours to get food
Waiter was great, food was good, but cooks weren't getting food out timely. Ordered 4 dishes and it took 1:15 min to come out. Had two diabetics with us and their delay did not help. Lemon Chicken still the Bomb!!!!! Clam fettuccine not anything to write about.
Not up to Par
We had spaghetti and meatballs with chicken parm...it was just ok
Multiple visits to this location & everything is consistently good.

When we arrived it wasn't very busy but service took 15 min just to take our drink order and then when we finally did order for or food that took about 20 min. And when we got our food my spaghetti had water at the bottom so by that time I was done. When I told the server he said "Yeah we've been serving not so good food all day today" so do not waste your time. Or go at your own risk!!
We had a party of seven that ate dinner on New Year's Eve. The service was terrible ! It seems that our server, Tony, was extremely overwhelmed. One of our appetizers didn't come until after we got our entrée. The drinks we ordered didn't come in until we got our entrée. The food is consistently good and that's the only reason I would go back.

Food was great but we had to sit at a plastic table and chair set in the bar and it was not very comfortable. Otherwise great.
We were seated 10 minutes early with our party of 11 on Christmas evening. That's the good part. The hostess at the front was clearly overwhelmed and loudly letting everyone know. We waited 45 minutes for our drinks to arrive. Our waiter was mostly absent. Another waiter did more for our table than our own waiter did. We had to ask for bread baskets and plates. One of our entrees was brought out at the end of our meal. We shared the other meals with the two people who did not get their food. Chaotic, loud environment.
Christmas Day Mess
First off, I am grateful for those at Buca di Beppo who worked on Christmas Day. We were a family traveling and appreciated the chance for a good meal that day. Unfortunately, Buca di Beppo was a complete management mess from start-to-finish. Reservations for 3:15PM and we did not get seated until 40 minutes later. For half that time we were the only people sitting in the entryway. Then we learned (from a capable young lady who observed this) that the three gents at the greeting station messed up our check-in process. She seated us immediately after that mishap. We walked past the kitchen and I had to stop and look a bit. It appeared that the manager was in the thick of things with boxes and cans strewn about the kitchen floor. Complete chaos back there. The waiter was nice, but did a bit of pre-apologizing that things might take a bit after orders. We had plenty of time to look over the menu while waiting, so we ordered everything immediately. Drinks came quickly, but they ran out of ice. The waiter apologized (an ongoing process) and brought out a single cup of ice 10 minutes later for us to share. Pizza (entree) came out first followed by our appetizer. No silverware or napkins, though. I had to get up and ask another waiter to help out since ours disappeared. 5 minutes later he brought out everything. Entrees came out 30 minutes later and were well-prepared and delicious. No errors in the preparation at all - just a huge wait. Our waiter disappeared throughout the process and we had to rely on others to bring things like napkins and plates. Overall, the experience took over three hours. We had to squeeze through a crowd of waiting people on the way out - one that spilled out into the parking lot. Summary is that it's great that Buca di Beppo offered this service, but they failed to serve. Good food that's a bit overpriced but solid quality. Horribly managed throughout.
Was Christmas with few restaurants open. So this was a bit of a madhouse. Our waiter was nice, but so nervous about everything that he didn't tend to listen. Food good.
Excellent food, good service!

Restaurant failed to honor a reservation for three. They offered a table which was squeezed In Between others. Only 2 people could fit. Other tables were open however they would not move our party. Left the restaurant and will never return
Tiramisu was Great!
A bit loud but it was Christmas Eve! Food was good and amounts were huge! Tiramisu was so big!! There were 4 of us and we had to take it home and enjoy next day!
As expected -noisy and slow... holiday meals!
We had reservations for Christmas Eve, 6:00. Had to fight through the crowd waiting for takeout orders in the foyer but were seated promptly. Our server Tyler was quick to ask for drink orders and bring those out with warm bread and butter. He was also quick for refills (my guys really like bread!) Food was slowish coming out, although he did stop by to ask if we wanted drink refills while we waited. Noise was moderate due to two large family parties in our room. When food did come out, my husband and son got their orders, but I did not. I assumed that it was right behind theirs but it was not. I waited a few minutes and then flagged him down. He remembered what the order was and brought it straight out. Food was good, but warm, not hot - like it was held on the side for a while. My husband and son said the same thing about their food. You know what you're getting at Buca di Beppo - good food, lots of family and work groups, crowded and noisy. Food was not the quality we have had in the past, husband and son were disappointed in dishes they have liked in the past. Portions as always, were generous. I don't know if food quality was not as good because of the crowds, or they may have changed recipes. As a mother of four, I know kids don't always act properly, and I can take that into account as well. But the combination of crowds, a busy kitchen and service not quite what we have had in the past, explains why I dislike holiday meals in restaurants so much.
Thank you for the wonderful experience that made this a great event for the whole family.
Great food, great service, and a fun atmosphere. Sat our table of 11 quickly and took great care of all of us. Great place for big groups and loud people:)
Pretty good experience.
Upon arriving, we were promptly taken to our table. The booth seats had a lot of food scraps on them, but the host got a towel and wiped them down for us. Our waitress was Kara (spelling?) She was attentive and knowledgeable and did a great job with our large group of nine people. The food was decent. I remember the Chicken San Remo was better the last time I had it. The chicken was very dry. Almost seemed like it went from frozen to overcooked. The rest of it was okay though. Overall a good experience, but not great. Will probably come back, but if the chicken isn't better the next time, it may be my last visit.
Wait too long for a 16ppl reservation
Dinner reservation for 16 ppl at 7:45pm....seated at 820 pm, waited too long in the lobby...service slow after that....drinks not until past 8:30pm. Food good as always, need more staff on high volume nights.
I took my work team and their families to Buca for a special celebration. We booked the Pope room months in advance. We had 15 persons in our party - half where children. The host led our group through the bar to our table - not cool. Our waiter was CLUELESS. He took our drink order and upon returning I ordered multiple appetizers and a salad and let him know we would order in a few minutes after our group figured out what they ordered. I let him know at that time we wanted a large order of each of the vegetables when our dinner was served. Appetizers arrived - but no salad. We asked for the salad again. The stuffed mushrooms where a joke - 8 small mushrooms scattered on a huge platter for $15 was absurd. After delivering our drinks and making us pass our drinks around the table (there was plenty of room behind the chairs to make his way around to serve each person. He couldn't remember who had what. We only had tea, water, or Dr. Pepper. It wasn't as if our orders where all crazy unique. He took our order and disappeared into the kitchen. I had reminded him about the vegetables and he said he would submit them with our dinner order. Dinner finally arrived (and the salad after our entrees) and many of us had nothing to drink - empty glasses. Once the waiter dropped dinner off he disappeared. And no vegetables. He finally returned to see if we need anything - sure do, we need drink refills and the vegetables we ordered twice. He turned quickly and headed for the kitchen and then returned to say they would arrive in just a few minutes - in other words, I finally submitted the order for things you should have now. Twenty minutes later he returned with the vegetables after everyone had eaten their entree. I've had better service a Sonic. I don't know why our service was so terrible. It's not my place to speculate (playing games on his phone, watching football in the kitchen, having a fight with his girlfriend). But, I was very disappointed in our experience.
We had a great Christmas lunch with 18 people. The food was fantastic! Service was excellent, the only gripe we had was we only had one server for all of us. He worked very hard and did a great job all by himself! Overall we were very happy with the experience!
Happy Birthday party !!!
The Pope's Table was perfect for our group of 15. We enjoyed the gathering with the carousel to serve the food in an easy manner. The menu chosen was delicious. Everyone enjoyed the salads and the chicken limon especially. The rigatoni was a little el dente for most and could have used a bit more sauce, but it was still very good. They were delightful with the birthday greetings and the candles. The waiter was so gracious to take family pictures of our group for us to remember the occasion. Thanks for a memorable day !!
Food and Service don't match
We ate here Thanksgiving. Food was very good, service very bad. When entrees were served, we had no plates. Good luck on drink refills. Seemed like a bunch of poorly trained high school kids that had no idea of being a good waiter. I complained to the manager who comped our meal.

Extremely cold in the seating area. Hard to eat while shivering! All dishes served family style, not a good plan if the two dining do not like the same food! Would not recommend!

STAY FAR FAR AWAY. All gimmick no substance. Food was served cold because it's apparently to hard for them to microwave the meal and make it hot. This is not real Italian food. The slop they served us was cold, tasted like Chef Boyardee with a hint of cardboard, and smelled like alpo. Let's not forget that they charged $40 for a $10 bottle of wine. I wouldn't eat there again even if I was paid to. Total waste of time and money.
Rare miss for Buca
Took family plus mother to Buca given past positive experiences. Ordered a salad plus two dishes to split and a kid's pizza. The salad was good, but two main dishes were very bland. One believed to have caused one party member stomach issues not long after leaving. The kid's pizza was missed and had to be started after the other food was delivered. They rushed it and it wasn't done properly. Could have removed the $5 pizza from the bill, but wasn't offered. All four of us left disappointed and in no hurry to return. : ( I jazzed the leftovers up at home and they were OK. Off the list for foreseeable future.

Staff from management to waiter went above and beyond to make us feel truly welcomed. I could tell that they actually felt proud of the food and restaurant. Our waiter, Anthony, did s great job. We had the eggplant parmigiana and it was one of the best eggplant I've ever had. Fried, but not too much. The tomato sauce served with it was extra fresh.

Been to Buca numerous times - always excellent food and service. Unfortunately this time, even with a reservation, we had a lengthy wait for our table and our waiter was clearly overwhelmed. It was "Homecoming" for a local high school and Buca wasn't managing their staff very well. Three people at the check-in stand kind of hanging about, waiters were stressed. But - we should have made plans to dine elsewhere once we found out it was "Homecoming" and so many large groups would be dining at Buca all within the same time frame. We will return!
50th Birthday dinner party
It was a wonderful 50th birthday dinner for my big blk greek family. The staff accommodation all our needs. The food as always good and price friendly for family of 25 people. Thank you Buca!!

My family and I always enjoy Buca di Beppo. It's not gourmet Italian food but it's a step above Olive Garden and other similar restaurants. The ambiance, serving style and casualness of the restaurant are is perfect for family meals or gatherings.
Love this restraunt.
We really enjoy going to Buca. The food is great and the service is always good. Go hungry, the portions are very generous! Fun place!

Enjoyed delicious meal with excellent service (our server was Ashley). Cesar salad crisp and just the right amount of dressing (lettuce was not swimming). Baked ziti had lovely flavor. Will return.

Nothing special in the food area. Good service however. I would describe it as an Italian Denny's with some atmosphere. Not bad, but nothing to spend $55 for two either.
We came with a large group, the server was excellent and food arrived quickly and tasted great
Buca is best!
We love the good here, and the atmosphere is awesome! The decorations are wonderful and will help entertain you until the food is served. Even my friends and family from the east coast love this Italian food!
Excellent food. Lots of it. Extremely friendly and efficient staff.
