Awesome food!

The food here is much better than other Italian restaurants I've been to. There is no need to add salt or anything else to the dishes.

Having visited this restaurant in other cities and Italian restaurants around the world, my wife surprised me with a birthday celebration with 12 family and friends. I started with a great house Chianti and traditional bruschetta and mozzarella caprese ...both spot on. Meanwhile, the service was attentive, friendly and animated ...perfect for our group. Then the tide changed ...the entrees.... More

We had a 9:15 PM reservation for an after HS grad family gathering of 21 people. We got their a bit early but the place was busy so it was about 9:20 when we were taken to our table, not bad for a Saturday night we thought as well as our big party. We were seated and given menus and... More

Trying to get my teens to break away from the standard faire of Italian food, we introduced them to Buca di Beppo this weekend. Started tame with the green salad, which IMO has a better vinagrette than other places; higher quality oil and less sugar. For a family of 4, two small entrees would have been plenty, but we were...

Some restaurants are quite predictable, no matter where they are. Such is the case for Buca di Beppo, and that's a good thing. My mom will be 94 in July. She doesn't eat just anything. It has to be good. Since this was an after church stop, lunch was the meal. My wife, my sister and brother-in-law, my niece and... More

Had my moms bday celebration there, and we all couldn't have been happier with the service and the food. Everything there is huge even the deserts...Sadly we had no room for any. But we will be going back (and try) to pace ourselves. :). Ask for Lexx

Buca's on Buffalo Speedway is a great place to gather around the table for family style Italian comfort food. For a better experience, make sure you call ahead for reservations. We arrived on a Saturday evening (that also happened to be the local area Prom night) at the dinner hour and were facing a 50 minute wait for a table... More

Arrived just before noon on a Friday and were quickly seated...maybe too fast as some of the waiters were late to work and we had to wait for several minutes before our waiter came over. Once we were able to order, delivery was quick and the suggestions were solid. My chicken limone was great and my wife's apple salad was... More
