I came for a birthday dinner, entrees are large and typically serve 3-4 people. The pizza was amazing!

Part of a larger chain, this local Buca is everything you'd expect in an Italian restaurant chain. Generous portions and good quality. This is our go to for easy Italian dinner date nights.

I called ahead and made a reservation for 2 for Christmas dinner at 8pm. We arrived at 7:45pm, waited to be helped for 15 minutes, were told there was no reservation made, we were told to go to the bar and wait, the bar area was very dingy/dirty and countertops were STICKY, & we weren't seated until 8:45pm. I showed... More

Pasta dishes, such as penne, is good to order for large groups. Service was good for handling a large crowd. Not a fan of family style, but it was ok for a work party luncheon. I would not recommend it for a large family event though, food is not that great

There are few restaurants opening on Thanksgiving; therefore, Buca di Beppo became our choice this year. The calamari looked overcooked but it was actually pretty good (it's just the color). The Supremo Italiano pizza was ok. The baked ziti was pretty good but a little bit too oily. All the dishes we ordered are not too authentic but more like... More

There were ten people in our party, including some children. We ordered a variety of the family-style entrees plus salads and cheese bread. The bread was not especially good, but the kids liked it. Salads were very very good, but the fettuccini was a bit dry. The broccoli was delicious. The chicken not so much. I give it a 3... More

Came in on a Sunday early evening, quick attentive greeting by the front desk, and got seated with a party of 5 within 2 minutes, great! The hostess left us with menus, kids menus and a great table in the corner. The server was there in a friendly timely manner, and helped us get started with drink orders and a... More

We had a dinner reception following a wedding. The Chicken Parmesan paired with a bottle of Chao house wine was great. The service was a little slow but I'm sure it was due to size of party. Try the Bruschetta, it was very good.

I visited this place on Independence day, just before the Fireworks at the rooftop of the Parking. The portions were large (even the small). It was a bit pricey, but you get good quality food.
