This is a very nice restaurant for those who want to have a slight celebration. All the food on the menu is a little expensive, but well worth the price. The servers were very friendly, and having said that we had never been to Buca di Beppo, took us on a tour of the kitchen. The decor may be a... read more

For years we would take the family and large groups. Always a great experience. Visited last week party of five. Gnocchis were over cooked. But in fairness to the restaurant, we should have sent them back. The wine was 15$ a glass, but I guess we didnt have to order any. Probably our biggest complaint of the evening was the... More

I've been to Buca's in a few other places and always enjoyed the experience. Granted, most of the time I went with many more people which I think enhances the experience. This time it was just a party of two. We started off with calamari which was decently fried and shared a main course of chicken, sun dried tomatoes, and... More

What may have worked for them in the past is certainly not what works today. The place needs a complete renovation to get rid of all the old stuff that has been there too long. The food was average at best and really is nothing you would want to come back to enjoy. Yes it caters to a big groups,... More

The salad I had was very nice, well-balanced and overall tasty. I had a piece of chicken there as well it was dry, small and really had no... More

We had our work's Christmas party here, a large party of around 50 people. We were seated in the back section near the restrooms. Even with our large group, we had great friendly service, always refilling our drinks without question. The bread was always hot when place on our tables. The salad was fresh and good. The pasta and sauce... More
