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... read 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

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

Buca di Beppo is a place we love to go although we don't go often. We have been many times and usually with a group of 8-10 sometimes 15 people. First off, the food last night was excellent. We had a table of 7 and shared Supremo Italiano Pizza (amazing), Chicken Carbonara (amazing), Veal (not so great but ok). No... More

Very attractive surroundings with vintage photos & items displayed throughout the several dining & bar areas. We were promptly greeted and our drink orders taken. The wait staff were all very pleasant and helpful with suggestions for appetizers & entrees. I had traditional Spaghetti & Meatballs. The pasta and meatball were freshly made in the restaurant. The meatball was HUGE,... More
