Relaxed, bustling, ok food

We went here a Saturday night. Lots of people in the restaurant and at the bar. Fun for an otherwise rather dead part of town. A bit noisy for conversations. The service was fast and friendly. The food was ok. Pasta Alfredo, pasta marinara. Cesar salad. Good family place but not super cheap.

First visit to Buca di Beppo and loved it. Warmly greeted and given a tour of the kitchen on our way to the table. Server was genuinely nice and attentive. The food was delicious. It's served family style. You can get a plate that serves 2 to 3 or a plate that serves 4 to 5. We loved the baked... More

Buca di Beppo has a great ambiance inside. Looks very much the part of an Italian family restaurant. But the food is sorely lacking. Sauce is very acidic. We visited them a few years ago when all the hoopla surrounded a new restaurant in Exton, and were not that impressed back then. Fast forward a few years later, and it's... More

This year we decided to celebrate Thanksgiving dining out without all the fuss. We took our family to Buca and had one of the best Thanksgiving meals ever. Our waitress was very pleasant and gave excellent service. The food was delicious and bountiful. The turkey was tender and moist. The sausage stuffing was wonderful. The garlic smashed potatoes and green... More

My bridal shower was hosted at this location yesterday. The management double booked, and decided to give us a small cramped room instead of the room we had reserved. What was supposed to be a lovely experience turned out to be incredibly chaotic, loud, and quite hurtful. I will spend some time apologizing to my family and friends for this... More

I love their salads especially the one with the green apples and the home made dressing! YUMMM! The pizza is more authentic like in Italy with the thin crispy crust,….I like the plain cheese or the margherita pizza but my daughter likes the pepperoni! Nice location in Exton Shopping area. Great atmosphere and good service! We like to go here... More

Went here with a group of friends, eight people total with a reservation. The place was surprisingly slow especially when there hardly was anyone there. We had ordered a mixed green salad, penne al la vodka and ravioli al pomodoro. The salad was extremely salty, and had more red onions than lettuce, which was all iceberg. I thought the vodka...

Good feel when you walk in. Salads and bread were very good. Ordered 3 different dishes. Chicken alfredo and lasagna and sausage were very good. Here is what I can't understand. The spaghetti and meatballs. As usual plenty of pasta, but why do these Italian restaurants skimp on the sauce, mix it up looks like they did not give you... More
