I went to Buca Di Beppo a few weeks ago for dinner; I had been told the dinner portions at this restaurant were large enough to feed at least 2 people but the hostess was kind enough to tell me that u can order a lunch portion for dinner. Perfect! I asked my waiter "Skip" for suggestions as this was... More

My family and extended family are all split about 50/50 on Buca di Beppo. I've just never had a good meal here (or at any Buca di Beppo, for that matter) and I've been to three or four others. This location is no different than the rest, aside from the service being a little better than the others I've been... More

I treated my wife and daughters to a Thanksgiving weekend in Nashville, and we had our Thanksgiving Day dinner at Buca Di Beppo near Franklin, Tennessee. We live in the Columbus, Ohio area, and we dine at their Buca Di Beppo for special occasions such as birthdays. Although Buca Di Beppo offered their traditional Italian fare on Thanksgiving day, the... More

This was my family's first visit to Buca di Beppo and we were pleasantly surprised. Since it was Thanksgiving we expected a wait but there was none. We made a reservation for 2:00 pm and we were seated by 2:00 pm. The ambiance is so cozy and although it was very busy that day we never felt rushed or forgotten.... More

Came in for lunch, party of four. Pretty much relaxed and no push to make deadline, so we had no real reason to hurry up. Waitress couldn't stand it, wanted to turn the table, but there really wasn't anyone there to turn our table to. We ordered, had a forgettable lunch, and just weren't all jazzy and fun to entertain... More

Was my second time to a Buca di Beppo and it was just as great as the first time! Started out with a nice salad and fried mozzarella. Moved on the baked lasagna for two and it was still huge! Nice atmosphere and great staff. Can't wait to visit again!!

This was my first time visiting and I was very impressed. Upon arrival they took us through the kitchen which was really cool. They also have a table in the kitchen as well so you can watch your food being prepared before your eyes. Five star food as well as service. Surely made me feel as though I was in... More

What a great family place, and a place for a celebration. The menu can accommodate large group portions. It's nice to get a few dishes so you can sample. The decor is great. You won't get bored waiting for your meal because there are so many great old photos and kitschy things hanging from the wall. There are also many... More

Had never heard of this chain so we gave it a try. Friday lunch. We called in advance to see if they have a gluten free menu . My better half is gluten sensitive. They said they do so we gave it a shot. There is no shortage of restaurants in the Nashville area and we like to try new... More
