We always enjoy eating here. The margherita pizza is our favorite...with a little salt, and the spaghetti as well. It's usually busy, but that's a good sign, right?

This was our first time at Buca, and when we told our servers that it was the first time, they brought us on a mini tour of the kitchen as they sat us down. We didn't realize it was family style portions (small feeds 2 and large feeds 4).....we got a small pasta and it was 1 pound of pasta!... More

Coming from NY area where we have great Italian food I really... More

For the most part I was pleasantly surprised with my introduction to this nationwide food chain by friends who wanted to entertain us. They had several menus to choose from and we even employed a two meals-for-the-price-of-one coupon which was honored cheerfully. The entire motif is definitely traditional Italian and Neapolitan restaurant style from the red gingham tablecloths to walls... More

Loud restaurant so if you have kids who don't like loud be aware. Somewhat slow service sometimes. Take out is a great option we use a lot; they have curbside... More

Buca di Beppo is a chain that sells kitsch and atmosphere. There is little that is authetically Italian here. The menu is lackluster. The servings are large; and many entrees are so high in fat that they can make a diner nauseated. The staff here are young and enthusiastic. The noise level detracts from any conversation one can have with... More
