Meh. The prices are a little high for the quality. The food isn't horrible, but you could go to a family owned restaurant and get better. Their tiramisu was really good, though! Service was friendly, but overall just kind of a bland experience. Probably a better place for larger groups.

Great family style restaurant, everything can be shared. Complete Italian environment. The cheesecake there is the best I have ever eaten!

We had a wonderful meal, a little slow between servings, but overall excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meal! Service was great and very friendly. The only negative was the cannoli a were small and they ran out. Not enough for our party! Everyone enjoyed themselves and it was an intimate enough setting for our party of 30-35. I would recommend definitely.... More

We had great service at Buca di Beppo and the food was very good, but I thought that the prices were a bit (or more) too high.

Huge portions, nice service, tasty Alfredo, but I would have preferred more garlic in the sauce. Bread was soft with crispy crust. Will try this again.

What a terrible experience! I had never been to Buca di Beppo before but decided to try it because we got a gift card from a friend. The place is very adorably decorated with many cool "Italian Style" fixtures, posters wine bottles, etc. However... The food, is awful. We ordered a salad which consisted of mostly iceberg lettuce (kind of... More

Yes, I know that it's a chain. But it's chain food at it's best. Wonderful Sicilian style Italian food served up family style. Do yourself a favor and reserve the kitchen table. Then prepare to be stuffed and tempted to the extreme. Too bad that they took the Caciatorre off the menu.

I had a taste for pasta yesterday & because we had such a great meal at The Buca in Livonia, we thought we'd try Utica---sorry we did. I don't get why the food is so different between the two restaurants. We had a antipasto salad that wasn't even close. Then we had a minestrone soup that was so thick that... More

Although the Lasagna tastes "excellent", it was barely warm when it came out. Furthermore, the Ravioli was an utter insult. Who pays $16.99 for a half dozen ravioli ? I did. The idiot. Never again. And when I was tired of waiting for our waitress to bring my beer, I finally went to the bar (when I seen the bartender... More
