I have visited Bucca several times in Houston over the past 10 years, and last night was the last straw. They are consistent for the following: 1. Over-priced food that does not taste good, pasta was too dry. The taste of gas was in the green beans and while portions are huge it was not flavorful 2. I asked for... More

The food was great and a great place to go with your family. Everything meal is meant for anywhere from 2 to 5 people. The setting is a little dark and the pictures are a little disturbing while trying to eat, but overall is a pretty cool place. Also, if you make a reservation in advanced, you can eat at... More

This was our first time at Buca Di Beppo Houston, it was just as delicious as our local Buca. The service was great, they offered online reservations even for a small party on a Saturday night. We walled in and were immediately seated. If you have never eaten at Buca di Beppo, the dishes are served family style, so the... More

We went with my step daughter and some of her friends to what is supposed to be an outstanding Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo. This was a celebration of my step daughter's birthday, and she had a coupon for a free birthday dessert. We expected to have a grand time. We had reservations for 10, and arrived on time. They...

Have always seen this restaurant but have never tried it. Went there for a rehearsal dinner for a friend's son. I didn't see anything like in the previous review and I thought the restaurant was great with interesting decor in each small private room. The food was excellent, we had two dishes for each course. Loved the Apple Gorgonzola Salad,... More

Buca di Beppo has been around for along time and it is time for an update. I didn't want to go and don't think any of my family will ever want to go again. The food is good, but let's be real - it's not a meal you can't get anywhere else. The booth we were seated in was duck... More

Huge portions and a great variety of options. Our server was attentive and helped to make some recommendations. The Apple Walnut salad is to die for!

We ate here again last night with 10 people. We sat in the Pope room which is awesome and semi private. Service and Food were both amazing. Calamari, Supreme Italiano Pizza and Chicken Carbonara. Delicious

My husband brought me here for my birthday. It ended up being such a different and wonderful experience. First off, we were greeted well at the front.
