WE celebrated our mom's 88th birthday in the Pope's room. It was nice for her,something different, but I was not impressed with the food and also thought it was way overpriced. I would not go again. We had problems with the service as well. Our server was rather unpleasant so we requested someone else and she was great.

Went for early lunch and service was slow to nonexistent and they weren't even busy. I ordered soup and it was luke warm, not much flavor and no salt on the table. We got oil and vinegar to start but no bread and the kids were hungry. It's a family style restaurant so was shocked that they brought crayons for... More

I was warned that Buca restaurants can be loud, but it was overwhelmingly loud. Two members of our group really couldn't hear anyone, so we ate and headed right out.

Head all these great comments about Buca di Beppo and how it was the best ever. My wife and I had lunch there. It was so so. The food was above average but nothing yo brag about. I ordered a pizza and it was wrong. She has pasta with white sauce. It was just pretty good. Just large portion. Not... More

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
