Buca di Beppo - Houston - Speedway Ratings and Reviews

My friend and I went there for lunch; we ordered the lasagna and chicken cannelloni. Both entrees came on hot plates and the temperatures were hot. Lasagna tasted average, nothing remarkable. The chicken cannelloni was extremely disappointing as there was only one piece of dime-size chicken. Yes, I thought they might have accidentally provided a vegetarian option as there was just sauces and cheeses. I did not inform our waitress as she did not appear to be friendly. Also, the salad dressing of Italian vinaigrette was too sour for my taste. The last time we dined at Buca was more than 2 years ago and this will definitely be our last.

I love the family style this restaurant provides where you order a dish and everyone shares it. It's a great way to try new things and you can have a quality meal for a pretty good price and even take home left overs!

I got home the next day and warmed up the Carbonera and found a 5 inch long dark hair in the food, it wasn't very tasteful after encountering that. Perhaps cooks need to be more careful in prep of food?

Almost everything is fine, especially the service ! Very attentive, polite and friendly staff. Pasta, pizza, vegetable, bread and cake are all good except that the salmon is too dry. But overall, it's still one of my favorite restaurant in my neighborhood. Recommend !

I like Bucas. I go often with my girlfriend. My dad loevs the Pope room. My gf and I have been to both Houston locations and dallas location. I have been to many others around country. I enjoyed this experience as well. Great food esp the apple salad. i like chianti. we used a coupon and a gift card. good time

Fathers' Day at Buca di Beppo was a bit of a mixed bag. We were a group of 8 and were squeezed somewhat uncomfortably into a large booth in the very back of the restaurant. I should have asked for a different seating, but I didn't. Our waitress was friendly and mostly pretty attentive, though being so far in the back, we did have a couple of time when getting her attention was a challenge. Also the booth made serving those seated against the wall difficult. Ordering family style is also a bit daunting. I ordered enough, but only just, and probably should have added another small entre or a side.
We'll probably dine here again because it is sometimes convenient and the food is pretty good, but it is not our favorite by any means.

The pizza was delicious, both the vegetable and the Supreme were excellent! We also enjoyed the antipasto salad, which was a terrific take on antipasto and salad. Buca di Beppo is the perfect place to dine and have fun with family and friends.
Relieved to Find that Buca is Still Very Good
We eat at Buca regularly but hadn't been in a couple of months. I was worried about the food after having read some recent reviews. Our service wasn't great because we had a new server, but the food was fantastic, as good as it has ever been. There were four of us and we shared Chicken Marsala (the best I've ever had), Eggplant Parm, and Spaghetti and Meatballs, along with an Apple Gorgonzola Salad. Everything was excellent. The noise level at Buca is always loud, so if that's not for you, it might be better to try somewhere else. But if you like an energetic atmosphere, this is the place.
For a unique experience ask for the table in the kitchen . There's only one, so you have to get lucky.

We went for the Valentine's Day heart-shaped lasagna special. Gourmet food - no. Great comfort food - absolutely. Loads of fun for a couple - absolutely. It is a Valentine tradition for my husband and me. Next year will be our 50th Valentine's Day together, and we'll be celebrating at Buca di Beppo.
We dined here on a Sunday evening. Service was a little slow, but attentive. I thought the prices were a high for family style. We ordered the Egg Plant Parmesan and the Ziti with Chicken and Sausage, the latter of which had NO sausage, and 3 very small pieces of chicken on the top. We confirmed with our server that we got what we ordered. She brought about a small bowl of chicken to add to the dish. These dishes tasted ok, but were not outstanding. The Apple and Gorgonzola salad, however, was good.
Do NOT go there
Food was bad- huge portions with no real taste
Service was bad- ordered two appetizers- only got one, ordered a kids pizza- got it last, and cold. drinks only arrived after the food. got a bread basket- with no utensils or plates. cake was hard as a rock and cold- should have been a malted lava cake... go figure
VERY family oriented, NOT dressy or romantic
I made reservations for NYE mainly because it was the only restaurant available in our area for that night. First time there, we were definitely over dressed. A lot of families with small screaming children and plastic checkered table clothes. I'm all about places like this on a normal basis, but I should have definitely looked deeper into reserving a spot that was more adult friendly with a dressier ambience. They have a full bar, so that was a plus. Chicken parm tasted exactly like Stouffers frozen entrée, but the mashed potatoes were delish. Staff is very friendly and accommodating, but they won't let you order until your entire party is there; even if you have separate tickets. I would go again for lunch or maybe even for some to-go food.

Great Christmas Day alternative to cooking! The food was yummy and the atmosphere was great. A tad loud but it was families happy to be together for the holidays. Definitely have a reservation for a busy day like today, we did and only waited 20 min from reservation time to be seated...If you were a walk in the wait was crazy long! We will be back!
