I’ve heard and read a variety of reviews of this location/restaurant ranging from great to poor. I went today with five co-workers for a group/team lunch. The last time I came here was over a month ago. My prior visit was actually good. Today it was not. Our server was courteous, but very slow. He did not check back frequently... More

We were very disappoint by our visit to Bica di Beppo. We did not like the family prices for a shared bowl of food....it seems when they do this, they feel they can put fewer shrimp or a smaller portion of meat. The alfrado sauce was too thick, the meatballs were raw on the inside and burnt on the outside.... More

I was looking for a Brownie Sundae and I found the best one ever here! The picture on the menu does not do it justice. The service was also great.

Still a fan of Carrabas but Buca di Beppo had even more authentic tasting Italian cuisine. The small sized portion is more than enough food to share and the family style setting is especially perfect because you don't have to sit with strangers (as is the case at some other family style restaurants). Not a fan of the oil and... More

We went here for the first time in years. This restaurant is jam packed with Italian memorabilia which is very fun to examine. We ordered a small salad and split it. All of their portions are large, or family style. We also ordered a pizza. Both were very good! We probably come here more often, but it's quite far from... More

I went to Buca in California and I remember liking it. I had to go to Jacksonville yesterday and decided to stop in with my dad. I was telling him how cool it was hyping it up. We decided to get the chicken parm (which doesn't come with pasta). My dad asked for a side of spaghetti even though I... More

We love Buca in Albuquerque, and on a trip to Jacksonville took our daughter and her family to Buca there. We were not disappointed! Jeremy, our waiter, was on his first week on the job, and was nervous, but attended to our every need, making sure our glasses were continually filled, and that we were happy with everything. The trio... More

My kids and I were excited to try a new italian restaurant. But, the next time we are choosing an italian restaurant we will go to Carrabas, Maggianos, even Olive Garden. I will spend less and the food will taste better. $100 for one adult and 2 kids? It started when I checked in at 2:50 p.m. for my 3:00... More
