Great food and a fun atmosphere!

We love eating at Buca di Beppo! The food is wonderful and the decorations are always fun. We especially like visiting the kitchen on the tour of the restaraunt and the Pope table.

Wow what a disappointment! The restaurant was not busy, yet to get anything was snail pace. Our water glasses came out with LIP prints on them like they had not been washed from the previous person. Our plates had smudges of food and crumbs on them! No real apology or attempting to make it right....makes one wonder if my food... More

These folks know how to cater to groups of people celebrating a special occasion. The food is delish. The staff is knowledgable and very helpful in regards to making sure you have the appropriate type and amount of food ordered for your table. They are also very tolerant of revelers! Not really a spot to take your elderly aunt for... More

Been to this restaurant twice in the last few months. The first time, the food was so delicious that we wanted to go again. In our second visit, which was a few weeks later, we ordered the same dishes but they were only so-so. Perhaps a different cook?

The food is okay but it's a little bit loud for my taste. More garlic than anyone really needs--I think that is their idea of authentic. But, it's a nice place for big families with kids since the prices are not too high.

I first tried Buca in California years ago and have loved or ever since! Every time I'm in Cool Springs long enough to eat a meal, I MUST come here! The food is amazing & definitely large enough portions to share or take home (my preference). I've never received questionable service here. They are always above the norm. If you... More

If you want real good Italian food, go to Buca di Beppo and get huge portions. They'll even let you dine in the kitchen. Service is great, but don't leave home without your Amex as is rather expensive.

There was a wide selection of Italian dishes. Serving sizes were huge and the service was outstanding. It was not cheap, but well worth the cost. Great place for family dining. Atmosphere is also very classy and unique.

We had a wonderful experience at Buca Di Beppo for Easter Dinner. First we added an extra person to our already large (12) person reservation last minute...no problem. We had a child with very severe food allergies...called ahead to confirm what she could eat..the hostess actually got the chef to come to the phone and talk to me, which was... More
