The atmosphere reminds me of a mix of Magic Time Machine and Spaghetti Warehouse. There is a gimmick of walking the customers through the kitchen. I thought the food was good and service was acceptable even though the waiter had the same lame routine for each table. A little more attention to busing the used dishes would have been better....

Service was friendly but we had not eaten at a Bucca in years so wonder if our younger selves just weren't as picky and the place has always been mediocre or if it was this one in particular. Everything tasted good, just totally rote. Nothing particularly interesting or savory.

Summary: As far as chain restaurants go this is one of the best I've experienced. It's better than most non-chain restaurants as well. Good for parties of 4 or more because of the large portions. Highly recommended. Visit: I visited for lunch with my wife, kids, and parents. Food: We ordered a combo appetizer which included fried cheese, calamari, and... More

No one in our group of four had ever eaten at a Buca di Beppo, but this was close to the hotel so we thought we'd try it. Entering for the first time is an fun experience since the decor is unique with hundreds of photos and pictures throughout. We found the lunch prices to be reasonable and the food... More

Is a fun place for a quick chain type meal. The decorations are very nice and the option of crossing through the kitchen to get to your seat is really cool. The portions are huge and perfect if you are going with at least someone else and hungry.

Way overpriced Italian chain food. Quality not that great. I'd prefer smaller portions of something that is worth eating. Don't waste your time here.

Was at first shocked by prices, but each small dish serves 2 - 3 people...we got 2 pizzas (vegetarian in our midst...) and tiramisu and it served 4 - very reasonable and delicious!

I normally avoid chains at all costs. But I just can't deny that I really do enjoy Buca in every way. The fun, light hearted, family style atmosphere is easy to be in. The food, while not amazing in any way, is always pleasing and plentiful. I cook better Italian myself as a non-Italian, but it's also nice not to... More

Marginal at best. The stuffed mushroom caps were good, but the rest of the meal was the quality you would expect from Chef Boyardee. If you have a car, find something else like the Roaring Fork and North by Northwest.
