Menu states platter is for 2 people. That limits choices. What if the 2 people don't agree on eating the same thing. That means they need to order 2 different entrees, which I felt were over priced for the amount of food you receive. Atmosphere is very dark and getting in and out of the building is very confusing, maze... More

My husband took me here for my birthday on 1/28. I decided to try something different from what we usually order (Veal Parm) and we shared a small Chicken Marsala. It was superb! We also tried aside of the pasta with the Rosa sauce which was excellent as well. The spaghetti was a bit too al dante' so next time... More

It is such a unique place just to wonder around and see the different areas and pictures is amazing. The food is all cooked on location nothing comes already made and nothing has to be reheated. The amount of food even if you order for 2 -3 people you will have enough to take home. The staff is extremely friendly... More

I love this place. First let me say that this is family style. So if prices look steep it's because one plate will serve 2-3 people. The interior is filled with pics of old actors and lots of Italian art. I never had a bad time or a bad meal. I will definitely be back.

Don't go here unless you are really hungry. The food is incredibly delicious, served in bowls big enough to pass. Each bowl serves 3-4 and that's the small size! I love the décor of this place, the music, and the food. Don't miss!!! Take a group....

Ok the food is good I have to say that. It is best enjoyed by a group of 5 or more as it is family style serving. Out last visit was for a birthday they offer no birthday cake with a candle like everyone else does. Yes cheesy but little things count. Ok being picky here; Price point for this... More

If you enjoy good Italian homestyle food, served on platters family style, then this is the place to go. This is a great family or large group destination, the service is good and so is the food. In addition, the quirky decor makes for great conversation!

We had multiple birthdays and an anniversary to celebrate for a total of 16 people. My wife visited the place in advance and they had a perfect sized room with a large round table that held 17 people. So, we reserved it. On the day of the event, they welcomed us warmly and because of the size of the party,... More

We have eaten at Buca di Beppo restaurants before in St. Paul and Des Moines (the latter is now closed). So we were looking forward to a celebratory family dinner at Buca in the Allentown area. We were not disappointed with the food, service, and moderate prices. The salads are exceptional, saltimboca and chicken parmigiana very good, and a tiramisu... More
