If you like Italian, this is for you. You feel like family as you are escorted through the kitchen before you are seated.

Buca di Beppo is a fun place to grab a bite. You get to walk through the kitchen on the way in, which is neat. The menu is extensive, and items are served family style, in large portions. Our waiter was attentive and provided great service. Not gourmet by any means, but a satisfying meal in a fun atmosphere.

Maybe my expectations were too high. I have heard about this place for years but had never eaten there. Now that I have, I can honestly say I will NEVER eat there again. I can overlook the laboriously tacky decor. I get that it is suppose to resemble someone's basement from the 50's but the tacky ceramics and old black... More

Such a cute place with disappointing food and service! We are not big on chains but at least expected Olive Garden quality which we did not get. Server was uninterested and food bland and tasteless. Music was great.

Super interesting decor and outstanding food. The garlic bread, stuffed mushrooms and caprese salad for appetizers could have comprised entire meal. Food very fresh and flavorful. My entree, lemon chicken with rosemary roast potatoes, was outstanding. Festive, fun atmosphere. Excellent service. Prices are perhaps a little on the high side.

Have been eating at Buca for years. Far from authentic. Prices are almost twice what you would pay elsewhere. You pay for the chintzy ambience, I suppose. It's certainly not the service. Still, there are some items that I enjoy there, namely the Apple Gorgonzola Salad. At $30 for what is essentially a chopped up head of iceberg lettuce, one... More

Well well, this is just the type of place to have the huge families, or large number of people from work eat and build memories together. The customer service is Top Notch as well.

We were there early on a Sunday, not long after 11am. So we were definitely before the lunch rush, and maybe only one other group had entered the restaurant before us. So it was not crowded at all. During our longer than necessary lunch there, the place still never got crowded (I only saw less than six other groups show... More

I never knew they had a table in the kitchen area. It makes the dinner experience that much more fun. The entire kitchen staff is engaging, not put off. The food is excellent. My wife and I LOVE the chicken parmigiana, the bianco pizza and those HUGE meatballs. We normally have enough for a second dinner too.

I made reservations for 4 for Christmas dinner beginning of November. We arrived prior to our time. We had 2 elderly women with us. Right off we were told it would be 30-35 mins until we are seated. That is 30-35 minutes after our reservation time. So here we were with no place for the elderly to sit nor any... More
