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

This is our favorite place to go when we want Italian food. My boyfriend says this is the closest to his Mom's cooking. Everything we have tried there has been great but we love the warm bread, Baked Ziti and Antipasto Salad. Don't forget to try a Lemon Drop Italiano, hard to have just one :)

Terrific menu, large portions for families to share and the most amazing tiramisu. I wish that there was one in San Antonio so that we do not have to put up with Olive Garden! Everything is handmade and tastes great, just make sure you come with an appetite.

My husband and I visited this restaurant tonight for a late Valentine's Day dinner. I made a reservation for a booth. We were sat at a table and when I told the seated that I made reservations for a booth he seemed frustrated/annoyed that he had to reseat us. The service was slow (although the restaurant was busy) and it... More
