Have always seen this restaurant but have never tried it. Went there for a rehearsal dinner for a friend's son. I didn't see anything like in the previous review and I thought the restaurant was great with interesting decor in each small private room. The food was excellent, we had two dishes for each course. Loved the Apple Gorgonzola Salad,... More

Buca di Beppo has been around for along time and it is time for an update. I didn't want to go and don't think any of my family will ever want to go again. The food is good, but let's be real - it's not a meal you can't get anywhere else. The booth we were seated in was duck... More

Huge portions and a great variety of options. Our server was attentive and helped to make some recommendations. The Apple Walnut salad is to die for!

We ate here again last night with 10 people. We sat in the Pope room which is awesome and semi private. Service and Food were both amazing. Calamari, Supreme Italiano Pizza and Chicken Carbonara. Delicious

I've never been a huge fan of cheesecake; but I've finally found one with flavor I've never been able to verbalize! I've always thought that it should be less of just a creamy feeling, and more of a rich, cheesy taste. Unable to explain what I mean by that, it still lives in Buca di Beppo's cheesecake! I tried this... More

My husband brought me here for my birthday. It ended up being such a different and wonderful experience. First off, we were greeted well at the front. My husband reserved the kitchen table for us, and it was a total different experience for me. The ambiance was family friendly and the wait staff seemed very nice. Our server, Katie, was... More

The pizza is excellent, the decor is fun, but the wait staff... we always have the impression that we are crashing an employees only social event. We have been twice, and both times the staff only waits on us after they have completely finished their conversations with one another. They are abrupt, as if our simple act of ordering food...

We reserved the kitchen table for 7:30 and we even called 15 minutes before to verify. We get there and they gave our table away. We talk to a the manager who was weak and feckless, who threw his hostess under the bus for double booking the table. Sad! As a military man this was unacceptable. They ruined my moms... More

all entres are family style i.e. have someone that wants to share or be prepared to have a carry out when leaving. Everything on the menu is separate. Bread is brought to table with oil for dipping before ordering. Salad nor Garlic Bread come with the meal. We ordered Fettuccine Alfredo and the pasta was clumped and not al dente... More
