Close to the avenues mall, right next to 95, the restaurant says that they are a family restaurant. I had a small portion of the ziti with meat balls. It was great but as I am traveling alone i had leftovers for 2 other meals! Good stuff and not too pricey

Still good but it is better to dine-in than purchase to go. More food given when dining in to the point that I get two more meals out of the leftovers.

Having been before and even enjoying the kitchen table we looked forward to a good early dinner at 1715. The garlic smell as we parked was delightful. We waited for 10 minutes for someone to come to the desk. We asked for a table for booth for two only to be told almost gleefully that it would be at least... More

I was seated 30 minutes ago and ordered a drink. Still waiting. They just brought me a drink, but it was the wrong one. It's just a tea. I could ask to speak to a manager, but I shouldn't have to. He looks busy dealing with other unhappy customers. The waiter is very respectful and apologetic. I don't think I'll... More

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
