Food was good. Service was terrible. Our salad and entree were brought to the table together and when I asked the server about the entree staying warm she replied that this was how it was served. We ate our salad and then used the same plate for our entree. Server was not attentive at all! Very unconcerned with my questions about entree staying warm. My daughter had to ask another server for bread and for a refill for my grandsons lemonade. We were charged for the refill. I questioned the server and she told me that refill were an additional charge. As we were leaving my daughter asked the manager and said no there was charge but made not attempt to correct the additional charge besides reprimanding the server. Oh well it was only an additional $3.90 + tax. Cute restaurant, nice music.

We have had good experiences at other Bucas in DC and other cities but our meal here was way below par. Almost everything from the pizza appetizer to the pasta was bland and tasteless. Our chicken saltimbocca was underdone. We had to wait till the end of dinner to get a kids mac and cheese which was ordered first and when it finally arrived it had a hair in it. A real disappointment

Went here after a Broadway show for early dinner did not realize it was family style. But we did manage to order ordered a salad chicken parmesan and pasta dish. There were three of us salad was decent good dressing, chicken was overcooked very dry pasta was lacking extra sauce also dry. We were not given plates for our main course we had to eat from our salad plates we were told that's the way they do it. So in conclusion I would not recommend this place

It wasn’t clear at first where the restaurant was located, as it required an elevator ride to the third floor (it shares a front entrance with Planet Hollywood).The ambience is a bit dark with many items hanging in the wall, but seemingly common for many Italian themed restaurants. The waiter was very attentive and quickly /clearly explained that they only serve family style. The choices include small (serves 3- more like 4or 5) or Large( serves many). The pasta was perfectly cooked. The red sauce was balanced. Great experience overall.

We shared the anti-pasta salad which was very large for two people and very tasty. We also split the chicken Parmesan which was a huge dish and we brought some home. The olive oil for dipping the bread is very delicious. my only complaint is that there was a large party of youngsters in a small dining room and it made for a quite a bit of noise. I guess you could ask for a quieter section.

I had the Frutti di Mar pasta and it was quite good, plenty of seafood eg shrimp, calamari, mussels, a bit spicy and flavorful. We asked for extra sauce and the restaurant provided it. The next table saw what we had and ordered the same thing. The service was excellent. I enjoy dining here on a regular basis.

Food was extremely bland and soggy, almost like it was microwaved. Kitchen "accidently" threw out the appitizer item that we wanted wrapped. Waiter was nice. Overall I would go somewhere else.

We really enjoyed our visit to Buca. The Chicken Parm was prepared perfectly. Our server, Ray was friendly, polite and efficient. We also met one of the managers on duty who checked in to make sure everything was right. This is a nice touch and gives a big restaurant in the heart of Times Square a warm local touch. We are regular customers so we will be back again soon.

We ate the spaghetti and meatballs. Food was good but it could have been seasoned more. A little bit more garlic would have done it. Service was great. We were seated quickly and the food came out right away. Our server Maria was very nice and attentive.

Lasagna was terrible, pizza very small (in Europe this is for 1 person) was ok, tiramisu was more cheesecake than tiramisu.
Nice place though, on third floor, with no windows.
For the food would not recommend it at all.
Maybe ok when you are with a group

Very poor service from the start. Nobody greeted us and many staff just left us standing at the desk . There was no queue no urgency or even an hello! Drinks order arrived when the meal had started even though it was ordered on seating a good 15/20 minutes prior. The answer given was that there was only one bar staff..so id hate to be there when it was even a quarter full. Totally the wrong impression fron the pictures and blurb on advertising. It felt cut off, no windows, no atmosphere. Incredibly diasppointing for New York City!

This restaurant is certainly a bargain but the food is only fair, and the service is slow. However the quantity of food for the price is incredible. You can definitely feed a crowd on a budget.

Buca di Beppo is a chain of family style Italian restaurants. The portions are plentiful and the quality excellent. Given that this restaurant is in the heart of Times Square the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend Buca di Beppo Times Square.
