We had lunch here following a swim meet. There were probably 25-30 of us and they easily accommodated us in a private room. The spaghetti and meatballs were over the top. Mac, our waiter, was attentive. After introducing himself, he remembered everyone by name.

My husband had eaten here with a big group a few years ago and had been telling me about it. Maybe we were tired, maybe we had a cold coming on, but I found the food just fair. Not bad, not fabulous, it was....OK. But it was REALLY hard to eat reasonably with just two of us. We ordered an... More

This is another restaurant my husband and I visited for our anniversary!! It is really good Italian food. The service was excellent and the food was delicious!! If you go order spaghetti and meatballs or the lasagna! I would not recommend the cheese cake.

We recently was staying at a conference in Franklin and went to this restaurant to eat because it was recommended by the hotel we were in. Large portion so we will end up bringing a lot home. I would highly recommend it. Good service too.

Three of us went here and ordered the small dishes, which we were told was enough for 3. Not so. The servings were small. Food no bad for a chain restaurant.

I've only ate at this location once and it will be my last. I'm just not a big fan of Buca di Beppo. It is a family style Italian restaurant. We ordered the spaghetti and I just didn't like the taste. Maybe this is more authentic Italian food but the tatse of the spaghetti is just not what I'm used... More

This was my first time ever eating here and I can say that it is worth the price and the wait. They don't believe in small portions. We got a small salad and small pasta and we still have plenty left over for dinner again. The scenery is great and the music is like dean Martin and Frank Sintaria

Enchanting dark environment as soon as you walk through the door. Walls are covered with pictures. You walk through the kitchen to get to the tables😨! We had a large group, sat with "the popes head" glaring at you while you ate. The little alcove was so dark, I would have loved to actually seen the food😩. The mozzarella cheese... More

Very good Italian food, but don't go by yourself. The portions are sized for 2-3 people in the small size. Most dishes $20-$25, but thats enough for 2 folks. We ordered two main dishes and figure we will make at least 3 meals out of it at home. The service was excellent and it was a very quite atmosphere, so... More
