Old world Italian cuisine and like going to Nonna's for Sunday dinner. Homemade pasta, authentic tomato sauce with good chunks of Roma tomatoes. The wait staff were knowledgeable and very helpful. And an added, nice touch - to get to our seats with my wheelchair-bound mother-in-law - we had to pass through the kitchen where we were greeted by the... More

Went on a Monday early evening..This alone should ensure good service, maybe not.. We waited 15 plus minutes for our first round of drinks. Our calamari arrived 15 minutes after this..We ordered both at the same time.. The waiter snaped at my mother, he never checked back, I had to physically get up to seek him out for refills...We spent... More

I loved this restaurant. The food was excellent and the ambiance was interesting. There are different rooms to eat and each set up with it own story. I lived that we were taken through the kitchen to get to our table. This gave us an opportunity to see the wall decorations and the chefs table. The staff were pleasant and... More

The hostesses were a little frazzled, but once seated, things were great. LOTS of food--well worth it! The white sangria was great. A little stingy on the amount in the carafe, though. The florentine dip was delicious, but we boxed it up to save room for.. Chicken Canelloni. Very good. Chicken was seasoned nicely. Pizza was great too. You of... More

I've gone to this Buca many times and have never been disappointed until today. We had a party of 7(reservations for 5:00) for a birthday/mother's day celebration. The service was terrible. When we arrived it was just starting to get busy but in our room there was only maybe 4 tables occupied when we arrived. We did get 2 appetizers... More

This was my first visit to this restaurant. They serve family style so you share the food. It was excellent and the staff was awesome. The prices are reasonable and the food was great. I highly recommend.

We came here as a group of about 8, and we figured it would be a good place since they offer "Family Style" dishes. However the food wasn't anything special, at all. It was rather expensive for the quality, and well, we've just been to other places. They crammed us all into this weird shaped table which was difficult to... More

Unless the two of you are willing to eat the same thing go somewhere else. Family style means a large serving - enough for 3 or 4 people. So, if you want to take a lot home with you AND if the two of you are OK ordering the same thing - this is the place. No issues with the... More

Ten of us arrived at Buca di Beppo and were immediately seated. Like others have commented, being seated involves being walked straight through the kitchen, which was unusual and pretty neat. In fact, you can even reserve a table in the kitchen! Deciding what to order was tough becuase there were a lot of choices. Thankfully, with ten people, we... More
