Buca di Beppo was close to our motel and we had heard good things about this restaurant. We were seated immediately and all the waitstaff were very friendly. We were warned that the servings were large. The entree was good, but not outstanding. The salad was very tasty. Quite an expensive meal; perhaps better with a big group.

Food was decent-nothing amazing. Waitress was good-no issues until after the bill when I saw that I was overcharged and forgot to let the waitress know asap due to a large party I was with. The problem lies with Sam who was rude and argumentative regarding the small refund. He actually asked me for names and numbers to figure out... More

Not exactly high quality but pretty tasty just the same. With the family size entrees it's a great place to go with a large party so you can sample multiple items.

Our family had a reservation and were seated immediately. The server came immediately to take our order immediately and service continued to be prompt and friendly. Drink refills came before requested. Food is served family style and we took home several containers which we consumed the next day. Good value for the money. It is a great place for families...

This place is located on wolf road; just minutes away off from NY state thruway 87. The restaurant is huge and has an interesting decor thru out the entire place. Also there are of hundreds of framed photos on the walls to enrich the interior. The entrance might look small, but it opens up to larger rooms as one walks... More

My son and I had dinner here. It is a family style restaurant so we had to agree on sharing a meal. We enjoyed it but I think the restaurant is better suited for larger groups of people. The family style menu is nice if several people are dining. Our meal was good and the service was good. We got... More

Food is served in huge bowls and platters and you serve yourself at the table. Salads were awesome, the chicken pasta, delicious, the cheesecake great, All... More

We had heard great things about Buca and have to say we were quite disappointed. The appetizers we had were good - we got the fried calamari, meatball cannoli and tomato and fresh mozzarella (caprese). The dinner is what left a lot to be desired. We ordered a veal dish - which was quite tough, definitely not soft and tender... More

I've been here with a large group of my family. The food is good, the price is right and the atmosphere is interesting. They take you in thru the kitchen to seat you. Great family style dinners. Fun place for dinner, celebrate birthday, etc.

Excellent food and very very affordable. Great for families with small kids. The service however is not that great. The waitresses (we had 2 of them) seemed to be annoyed by their customers and kinda sucked the good out of the experience,
