We had a Buca di Beppo in Wynnewood pa. and we loved it. this place is stuck in the middle of touristy station square and takes advantage of its location. I had a draft and my wife had a mixed drink and it was 20.50. That was ridiculous and we told everyone we spoke to that was at the wedding... More

One of my favorite Italian restaurants. Found a deal that fed 4 people for $40. Hard to find a better deal of spaghetti, salad and bread to feed a family of four. The food as always was delicious and the Caprese Salad was very fresh as well.

The many themed rooms of the restaurant are interesting, including the restrooms. The food is good. My only concern is the method of serving is family style. You need to order a couple entrees & share them. Portions are large. I've never seen anyone leave without leftovers

Visiting in Pittsburg and found this old time restaurant which serves meals in a "family style" way. Portions sizes are "small" for 2-3 people or "large" for more. Unfortunately, if you want a salad for a single person you have to order in these sizes. I really wanted one but my partner has dietary restrictions and we had no refrigerator... More

Great atmosphere, but the food is just average Italian, not anything different from any other of the chain.

This restaurant is well-known for its meatballs. We found out 10 minutes after we ordered that they were out of them! We started with a Caesar salad. The romaine lettuce was old with several brown pieces. The dressing was uninteresting. There were no crouton's despite the menu description. We had a delicious chicken dish. We also ordered eggplant parmesan. It... More

I don't live in Pittsburgh anymore so I had never heard of this restaurant. It was conveniently located in Station Square so we decided to try it. The place is very quaint with lots of great old pictures on the walls. Great atmosphere but a bit on the dark side with no windows. The service was very friendly. The food... More

Again, another place to entertain business clients but not if they are not into "family style" dining. Service is pretty impersonal since the servers basically take your order, bring your food on platters and it is "help yourself" from there on. While the food is good, it is not outstanding or impressive in any way. Just an OK place if... More

I LOVE this place. Every time I come back to Pittsburgh, this place is a must. Its very kid friendly and large family welcome. The food is amazing and the serving size is worth the price of the meal.
