This was much better than expected

We stopped there for lunch today, not expecting much as we are in Charlotte, NC. We were very surprised to find that it is a very nice, family style restaurant. The food was very good, the service was kind, but not extremely attentive, and the prices were very high for what you are buying. It is... read more

Had dinner there with my wife and daughter a couple of weeks ago and, as usual, we left very satisfied. We love the large portions and the option for pasta sides...our go to meal is the Chicken Parmigiana with Fettuccine Alfredo and Spaghetti sides. The service was great and we had some food to take home.

I have been to other Buca di Beppos and the food and atmosphere was consistent with the others. Food is served family style. Good but not great Italian. Good but not great wine list. We got in and out quickly. This restaurant is good for families including small children. This was a business dinner for me. The noise level was... More

As most know, Buca in any city is great for large parties and the Pineville locale is no exception. We went as a party of 6 adults and 2 kids and brought a cake to celebrate a 75th birthday. It took at least 15-20 minutes to bring any beverage to the table. Period. We ordered some garlic bread right after... More

We scheduled a group, 2 weeks in advance, for an important lunch meeting but had to wait 30 minutes, after our scheduled time, to be seated. There was only one server for 10 people and he kept forgetting items that we ordered and drink refills. The service was so slow that it took 2.5 hours just to get the food... More
