This used to be a great place to come. But the last 2 visits I have had, it was terrible. The restaurant was almost empty when my family got there, and we had to wait for someone to come and greet us and get us to a table. Then, no one came to ask us if we wanted a drink... More

I found Buca di Beppo somewhat confusing. Before arriving at Buca di Beppo, I was not aware that diners had to order food selections in quantities to serve two or three people. Therefore my wife and I had to eat the same thing. The food we were served was good but limiting our selection was a turnoff. Buca di Beppo's... More

This restaurant is more than just the awesome food, but a great experience as well. You can sit in the kitchen and watch all the food be prepared along with meeting and socializing with the managers and wait staff. Very friendly staff, food that is better than delicious and there is not a chance you will leave hungry!

We came to celebrate my friend's birthday. The food was very good, but we had some trouble with the service. Our waitress was quite busy socializing with people she knew at another table and it was a bit of a struggle getting what we needed in a timely manner.

The meal and setting was a huge disappointment. I expected this chain to have better quality food and awareness of their environemnt. My grandchildren ages 11 and 9, joined me for dinner. I selected the location because I know they enjoy Italian food. As we were greeted I was questioned whether we wanted to eat in the bar area or... More

Seriously.... A Pope room!! In an Italian restaurant!! It's a semi private room with a huge 10-15 person table decorated with a ceramic painted bust of the current Pope as a table centerpiece. What a hoot!!! My parents had rooms that looked like this restaurant. Pope, pictures, paneling... All of it. The decor is to make you feel like it's... More

We have been to two other locations and enjoyed the food. We were extremely disappointed in the calamari, the salad and the ala vodka sauce. The only thing we liked was the chicken dish. And, the price for lunch for four people was $32.50 a piece. We only had one ice tea and one coke. That is unacceptable. We paid... More

The atmosphere was magnificent. The path from the foyer to the dining room took us through the kitchen which was clean and the smells sparked appetites. The walls are filled with Italian-themed pictures. The food was temperature appropriate and plentiful. The flavors were exactly as expected - not bland and not over spicy. We will definitely return to this restaurant!

Strange menu. You have to be with others who want the same food since its family style and you all have to eat the same thing. Food was good.

We always end up ordering too much and taking it home. Service is nice. Very busy on weekend I get chicken parm or lasagne. But really a lot of food. A nice place out here in Chester county
