Good food, average service, decor

Food was good but the portion of the food making it difficult to try different entres from the menu. Food was good quality but the service seemed very overwhelmed and took a lot of time. Went there for my son's birthday so wanted a bit more service level which was missing.

The restaurant has a funny smell to it. Like used dish towels that haven't been rinsed in a while. The hosts at the front weren't very professional, but perhaps they were just having fun with all the prom kids. The food lacks flavor; and the waitress never once checked on us despite it not being busy. Prices are high, because... More

We have been to Buca di Beppo many times for family celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries. It has very good food. At times the service is slow.

Went to dinner with a group of friends, crazy environment and very busy place. Great service from the staff and the food was family style, reasonable and enjoyable. Would recommend it to others.

This is a good Italian restaurant. Your visit starts with a tour of the place if you want one. There are hundreds of photographs on the wall to make things interesting. We had the chicken parm and it was good. It could have used more sauce. We also had a salad which was good and a side of spaghetti which... More

Lots of food served family style but of only average quality. Lots of noise and very crowded. Over a 1 hour wait if you did not have reservations so clearly very popular. Calamari and the apple gorgonzola salad were very good. The veal parmigiana was pedestrian.

Your visit begins with a trip through the kitchen. If you aren't hungry already, you will be. The food is served family style. One entrée will feed at least 3 people. The 2 of us barely put a dent in the shrimp fra diavola. It was amazing. Spicy and perfectly cooked shrimp. We also had the artichoke Florentine dip which... More

We arrived for our 11:30 am reservation and were seated promptly to a lovely room in a delightfully decorated cozy dining room. Our server was friendly and personable and accommodated all of our requests, including the meals served family style with... More

The food was mediocre, have had better food at local mom and pop places. Also the price was expensive for their small family size portions that barely feed two. I compare it to a few different restaurants around me. Their price is less then half for portions that are more then twice. Also at most restaurants the meal comes with... More

We went as a family for a special occasion and enjoyed ourselves. The food is served family style, and that is perfect for larger parties. We all ate as if we at home. The waiter was very informative and professional.
