Not your typical Italian restaurant

I'm probably one of the few who do NOT like Buca di Beppo. I like the photographs generously placed around the restaurant. And the staff was friendly enough. But I was not impressed with the food. Bigger is not always better. Very predictable Italian/American fare that was alright. They were... read more

I previously reviewed Buca in September of 2014 and was not impressed with the food. The restaurant emailed me a few weeks later with a gift certificate for another visit, which we used on Saturday. First of all, no one knew we had the certificate until we paid the bill. We were 15 minutes late for our reservation but were... More

We go here when we have all the family together and get big portions of pasta and desserts! The meatballs are extremely big and the desserts are top notch. It will definitely fill your stomach and give a good time for all.

Have been numerous times and never a bad meal. Generous portions and decent prices - given that most places charge an incredible markup on pasta dishes. Occasionally a wait, but where in the city will there not be a wait, especially on weekends??? Wait staff has always been courteous and prompt.

Buca gives you family style portions. Entrees are order's in either small or large. Small is designed to serve two or three people, and the large is more for four to five. Everything is a la carte so be prepared to order a family salad, an entree, and maybe a pasta to go with it. We ordered the small eggplant... More

Four of us ate at Bucca's on Saturday night. We ordered small portions, getting one order of each a salad, appetizer, cheesy garlic bread, spaghetti & meatballs, and chicken carbonara. There was so much food that we ended up taking some of each pasta and some bread home with us! Everything was fantastic, there wasn't anything we didn't like. The... More
