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

I got a great carry out. Call ahead and it was ready when I got there. Great services getting the order. The salad didn't have the dressing on which was good. If the dressing was on the salad would be saggy. Love the eggplant Parmesan is the best.

Food was great, but service needed to greatly improve. Never got drinks refills except for a child glass when we took it to the server. Sever would show up to take an order and then disappear. I ordered a glass of wine and when she showed up to deliver an appetizer, I asked about the wine and was told she... More

All entrees are served family style. Food is good and a dish will serve from 2 to 4 depending on your eating habits. Can order 4 dishes and share enough food for 5 to 8 people or 10 or more if your are feeding the little one's.

We had a chance to eat at the kitchen table booth! Celebrated our daughter's 12th birthday. The kids all loved it but the food was way over priced for the quality. This place needs major cleaned and the menu is not so great. Some kind of rock & roll music playing in Italian restaurant with Sinatra photos all over. Reminds... More

I was taken here by some friends for my birthday. We had an absolute blast & the food was excellent. And our waiter, Amari (not sure that's spelled right) was absolutely fantastic!!! He made our celebration even more fun! He was great, attentive and we had lots & lots of laughs with him.
