Great food!

We went here recently for the first time for an anniversary celebration. We were blown away at all of the food that was brought out! Food that we enjoyed were fried calamari, bruschetta, chicken marsala, salmon sorrento, penne alla vodka and chocolate cake. We were so full when we left... read more

I love the family style service! This was my second time going and it was just as good as the first time we went! Large portions and amazing wait staff! I wish I had our waitresses name but she was very personable and took the time to ask about us! Love it! Service was prompt, food was great, will be... More

Three days ago was the last time we will ever go to Buca di Beppo. 1. The noise level was unbearable: we could not here each other unless by shouting. 2. The service was unconscionably slow. They had only one waiter for too many tables. We could not communicate with him and he was so busy that he did not... More

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I've been to. They serve a good quality Italian food compared to the price, the small size is enough for two. I tried the spaghetti with meat balls and it was delicious. Worth visiting

The food and service were great as always. It can be a bit chaotic waiting for a table but the wait is usually over in 10-20 minutes. Appreciate the suggestions on serving size.

From the minute we arrived we were escorted by an amazing host who happened to be a marine. He was very polite and funny. The bartender was our server and didn't miss a beat and gave great tips and advice for what to order for two. I loved the Italian cream cake!

If you like lots of very overdone pasta with over seasoned sauce, this is the place for you. And...some people do like that. This is good for a large family of people who don't have a lot of experience with finer Italian food.

This restaurant has a lot of potential to get a 4th star and even a 5th. The decor is fun, busy but is starting to show its age. The service is good but can be pushed up a notch. The prices are a tad high for the food and service. It is a family style dining which means you order... More

Time of the day is immaterial. It is always packed, but has enough space to accommodate party of 6-8. Food is good, enjoy their bread with olive oil or order some marinara while appetizers come.

Entering the dining room is sort of like going to your grandmother's house, if she were a hoarder. All of the tables are very close together and there are so many little decorative items on the table there is barely room for your food. The whole vibe is old and yet comfortable at the same time? On to the food,... More
