Pasta Heaven!

This restaurant has great Italian food with large, family-style portions. We started out with bread dipped in oil and Parmesan, and a salad with green and black olives. We then had the Chicken Parmesan, Fettuccine Alfredo and Spaghetti Marinara, all of which were delicious. Even though we were... read more

So we got the shrimp florentine.. He started with soup.a chicken Italian wedding style..me it was ok. Originally, our server said... More

When older people go out for a dinner, I'm sure I can speak for many. A nice, quiet atmosphere is what we need for a casual night out. Visiting this place 3 times, and all three times, I was seated next to a family with very loud, very unruly children. This place has good food, but if only they would... More

We have been to other Buca di Beppo locations on trips around our country, and all were good. At this Illinois location, we had ravioli and chicken carbonara. Both were delicious, with the pasta perfectly done. The hearty portions meant we took home leftovers for another meal. My husband enjoys their house chianti, too, which he had with his meal....

I have been to Buca di Beppo a few times in other cities. Everywhere you go, they are outstanding. The chicken Marsala is awesome. The chicken is tender and the sauce with mushrooms is delicious. I appreciated the fact they had a gluten free menu for my friend with gluten intolerance. The lasagna and salad were great. We also had... More

Went here for our wedding anniversary. Had a great experience with our tour first then good atmosphere while we ate. The food is served family style so you can order smaller meals and still have left overs.

The night we went was crowded. Service was fine the food was uninspired. The noise level was bar like. Could be an okay place to visit if other restaurants are backed up. Don't go out of your way for this one.

Been to one in Vegas several years ago which was OK. This one is top notch. Very quaint inside, with lots of photos on wall (celebrities from Vegas visit, old black and whites, etc.). Host took us thru kitchen on way to table (different, very clean). Lots of rooms, very charming/quaint! The food portions are HUGE. They are $15 AND... More
