    We did not know about the family style meals. It was great tho, we had chicken parm and eggplant parm with noodles both Marinara and Alfredo. The bread was delicious. It was a more food than we needed but it was good.

    We made a reservation so that we could stay on time for the graduation we needed to get to at a certain time. We were told when we arrived that the table was being cleaned, and we were seated 15 minutes late. We ordered right away and my daughter was barely able to eat anything given how long it took to get food. We knew it was going to be an issue when the lobby was packed right before we were seated. When we walked back to our table there must have been six or seven tables we passed that could have accommodated our group, so I'm not sure why we were kept waiting so long. We made our reservation at Buca because they are usually so great about handling large groups, but I was disappointed this time.

    Buca di Beppo - Houston - SpeedwayResponded on June 21, 2022We are so sorry to hear that we let you down – particularly on such a special day. We appreciate that you have taken the time to write to us. We will be sure to share this experience with our staff in an effort to improve future guest experiences.

    We went for Mother’s Day. Everyone I talked to raved about the place. This being my first experience I was excited. There was decent parking and we got right in and they accommodated 2 last minute additions to our party. Unfortunately that’s where the good news stopped. After that everything else was subpar at best. Wait staff wasn’t very attentive. There was only a handful of occupied tables in our section (3 of 6) and they were a 4 top, 6 top, and our 8 top. The waiter took for ever to get drinks delivered. Food came out inconsistent. Our chicken park cutlets we’re just above room temp almost touching cold in some spots, everyone else’s food seemed hot that came to our table… food was staggered in the delivery spanning 10 or so minutes. I was expecting better quality on the chicken park considering 3 cutlets with no pasta is pushing $30 for the order. The waiter misheard our appetizer order and tried to bring us the wrong thing even after we got our mains and we’re packing up to leave. He didn’t take the mistake off of the check before bringing it. When brought to his attention he took the ticket and said he would fix it, came back to our section 10 minutes later picked up the other check at our table and the check at the table next to us. Approximately 5-10 minutes after that he brought back the check that the other parties paid and finally brought me my adjusted check. Took him another 7 minutes to bring me my copy to sign. So took a solid 20-25 minutes just get pay and get out. I won’t be coming back because for the price of everything and the quality of food and service… it just seemed way over rated.

    Daughter’s birthday. Called it out in the reservation and To the waiter. No extra effort, no little birthday surprise, just nothing. $10 for Garlic bread? Chicken Parm was meh, the pasta was over cooked and the Booth where we were seated was broken.

    Can't remember the last time we got fresh out of the oven bread at Buca's. Today we did and it was AMAZING. I call great service if I don't have to ask for tea etc... if the server 'sees' the need and does it without me asking, otherwise, it's only good service. The chicken limone as always, was delicious!

    I called to confirm the party and they said they could accommodate. Upon arriving they had the seating area separately which didn’t make sense for our party especially seeing they had an entire area open, circular table, but didn’t seat us there. The Calamari was served cold. Server stated “sorry I’m busy with my other tables” as her reason she refilled our drinks as we were paying.

    I made a reservation for 18 people at 8pm on a Saturday night. I realize it is a lot of people, this is why I made a reservation. We arrived at 8 and told them we only have 14 instead of 18. Okay, we are clearing a table, they said. At 8:30 we were still waiting. At 9:00 we were still waiting. We kept being told that it is busy and they are doing the best they can. We finally get sat at 9:30. We were then told that we need to hurry and put our order in because the kitchen closes at 10. After we placed our order the waitress came back to tell us that they were out of fettuccine, spaghetti and some other pasta. I mean the experience could not have been worse. I was told that they had recently changed management. In my opinion they need to change again. It has been at least 10 years since I had been there and I will never go back.

    This was the worst experience ever. I booked a 7PM reservation through OpenTable and STILL had to wait for 30 minutes when my party of 8 arrived. 30 minutes passed and our table were still not ready. There were other guests that’s been waiting for over an hour for their table and this was just unacceptable. My party ended up leaving and heading to another restaurant. It was chaos. I was excited to try this restaurant because I’ve never been here before, but I will never come back to this location.

    Poor Bucca has gone downhill so badly. They haven’t update on what feels like decades, she bathrooms and floors were nothing short of filthy, and the smell was about what you’d imagine it would be per the comments above. We used to love this place, but it might be time to close the doors if I were the owners.
