Good food, fun atmosphere, but really big portions. This is not a place for 2 people. If you order the large lasagna, you will never eat lasagna again! It was enormous!

Love this location, folks are friendly and helpful. We like to sit in the bar area for date night, when with family to other areas of the restaurant are better. Portions are large enough to share, the wine selection is good . You can have a great time , however, it can be abit pricey. .

Easy to get fooled by the number of large groups that are often in the restaurant. Best Italian food I have had anywhere outside of Venice. Large portions that can be shared. My wife and I have eaten at the restaurant several times and purchased the take out trays for party for large group and the food was equally great.... More

Much to my surprise my waiter Jason is from Reggio Calabria, Italy, a city on the mainland side of the Strait of Messina with Sicily 2.5 miles accross the strait. I had been there a year ago on my way to Sicily. Thank you Buca for the free meal on Veteran's day. Great Italian food with a real Italian feel.

They are incredible with a big group. I've never seen a restaurant run so smoothly and efficiently with large groups in house. Friendly staff that went above and beyond!!

Great value, good menu with choices for everyone. Spaghetti marinara are great, lasagnas are too rich, pizzas are delicious but they take forever to come out of the kitchen. And my favorite, a Seafood pasta, a little spicy with lots of mussels, and various other seafood mixed in with a very good red sauce. Great option for families parties and... More

Buca di Beppo is a chain, so I suppose most folks know what to expect, but it's a good thing I brought friends to this party. All of the items are served family-style and a la carte, so everyone will usually be eating the same meal and a well-rounded presentation will require a few extra bills. The food is good,... More

The food, the family-type service, the friendly staff, and the company I was with during the meal made the experience worth noting. We will visit, again, in the near future.

We get take out from here frequently. There tends to be quite a wait for a table especially on weekends. Chicken parm is delish, and the chicken penne arrabiata is also great. We've enjoyed the salmon pesto, but look out for the bevy of roasted garlic cloves! Eat it together so your breath doesn't overpower your company.
