This is by far my favorite restaurant in the United States. The food and service is always great. The décor is outstanding.

Tried it for the first time last week with by B-Day coupon. Was pleasantly surprised. As the Granddaughter of 'Immigrant Italians' I was curious about the concept and food. What a cool place! While we waited for our take-out, we toured the labyrinth of dining rooms, pictures, and themes. Next time definitely we will definitely try the 'romance' booth then... More

Our family has started to go there to celebrate Birthdays. The food is good , the surroundings with all the old Italian pictures everywhere is really fun and entertaining . They can serve a couple or big groups. The restaurant can sit around 270 people. You can either order Family style or single menu. The price is also reasonable. Highly... More

First time to any buca di beppo and the food is really good, most entrees serve for 2 or more depending on your small or large orders. Service was great, we got a mini tour before we got to our table and they brought us samples on how big the plates were. Highly recommend

I arrived about 7:30 pm Friday night and my party of 6 was seated right away. After 15 minutes we started asking for a waiter. When one ask if we were the table looking for a waiter, he said he was told to pickup our table as we had been seated at a table with no waiter. We order water... More

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
