The Concept is just ALL WRONG

The idea behind this Italian restaurant is that you order dishes to share, and the price point is set accordingly. However, in my opinion, I don't want one dish of pasta between four people. I want four little dishes of different flavors and ingredients to share, but this is virtually impossible at... read more

This place is known for Italian food served family style so the portions are huge! Knowing this, i called to ask if they make single portions. Although it was dinner time, they offered to make me a lunch size portion of my pasta dish. I ordered seafood pasta dish as well as a slice of chocolate cake for take out.... More

A co-worker and I meet at Buca di Beppo for lunch. I ordered Penne San Remo. My co-worker ordered Eggplant Parmigiana. The Eggplant Parmigiana came with a choice of 5 sides. The side ordered was Fettuccine Alfredo. Both entrees were tasty but the Eggplant Parmigiana with Fettuccine Alfredo was extra tasty. We both took lefts over home.

Old-fashionied, but un-snobby place, complete with religious artifacts such as the pope. Consider sharing meals as the portions are meant to satisfy Godzilla, and his friends. Tastes great though, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Nice for special occasions.

You will easily drop $100 on a meal for two here but the food and atmosphere is simply amazing. If you like italion then you will be hard pressed to find a better "date night" location to enjoy your evening dinner at.

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
