There were 7 in our party tonight. Our group has eaten here several times previously, and have had great experiences. Not tonight. Our salad came out in a very reasonable time. Our bread was delivered, but there was a lag in getting the olive oil and balsamic vinegar. After our salads, we waited, and waited, and, waited for the two... More

My family and I visited the Buca di Beppo in Franklin, TN to pick up food for my birthday. We ordered bread, chicken, and fettucine alfredo. Although we didn't stay to eat in the restaurant, the server who rang us up and gave us our food was nice. Our food was ready when we arrived. When we got home we... More

Ate here with my wife and the food was really good. They serve very large portions. I would recommend that you come with another couple and plan on sharing. The setting is what you would expect from an old Italian eatery. Very nice, service was great, the green apple salad was awesome.

We enjoyed the meal, but if there are only 2 then you both must lime the same dinner as the plates are sized for 2. Other Buca di Bepo allowed us to do order individually off the smaller lunch sized plates, so we will not be returning in the future unless we have 4 as it is not a good... More

I had a reservation for two at 7pm and after 50 minutes of waiting we left. The host kept telling us that they were clearing a table for us each time I asked "How much longer". Do not go here unless you a time to kill. Very disappointed.

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

We live in the Columbus, Ohio area, and we dine at their Buca Di Beppo for special occasions such as birthdays.
