“Great for a large group”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

This was our first time to a Buca di Beppo. We'd never heard of them (they are not in our area) but a quick web search showed they are a pretty sizeable chain, including locations in England and Mexico. With a party of 7, it made it a lot of fun since we could order a number of entrees, which are all served family style in dishes serving a minimum of 2-3 people. The salmon was really very good, as were the pork chops. Of the seven items we ordered, all were quite good. We were too full for dessert afterwards. The decor is over-the-top Italian, and the trip from the hostess station to your seat includes a tour through the kitchen. Making reservations online was helpful also. Of course if there is a birthday in the area, there's lots of singing by the waitstaff and the patrons. Our waiter was very personable and helpful. Overall, highly recommended for a larger group in a fun atmosphere... the walls are completely covered in all manner of Italian-oriented photos, music, paintings, etc etc... you won't be bored.

“Something different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

It was our first time trying this resturant and it was good. We ordered pizza and cheese sticks well they was more of a triangle on a bed of marinara sauce and the salad is almost like Olive Garden's. It is a friendly atmosphere and the waiter's and the waitresses is really nice to.

“The only Italian place you should go to!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

My husband and I have been going to Bucca's for over 6 years nows. Anytime we go into town we go there. Sometimes we'll decided to eat there and plan something else around the area just so we can eat there. If you love Italian this is the place! The atmosphere is so amazing. And the food is great! We recently discovered that you can buy jars of their marinera sauce and take it home. Who wouldn't do that?! We took home a couple jars. We just love this place. Hands down and all around amazing!

“Better than the usual - fun chain”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

I have been to other of these restaurants in different cities, and always enjoyed them, but this one seemed a bit better than the others. Maybe it was because I had the pizza for the first time - and it was great! A white pizza with ricotta - and I added sausage. It was an appetizer for the table that was hard to stop eating (we ordered a lot, with the theory that my college-kid could take back leftovers). The salmon with pesto was very good, as well as the pasta dish. It is always a pleasant place - and this was even a touch better.
