After trying multiple times for a short notice reservation, we were finally able to get a table here. The restaurant is decorated with hundreds of photographs which were fun to try identifying. Most tables were occupied by very large families and groups. The food was very good, but a little slow. The service was very good. It's a little pricey.... More

Ate a late lunch here today and was not very impressed. The staff was not welcoming and the food was mediocre. We had the mixed salad, lasagna, and Chianti. The wine was nice but the lasagna was sweet and the salad meh. The prices were pretty high for what you get too. Also, the meals are made to be shared... More

We had the spaghetti and meatballs (smaller portion for the 2 of us) and the mozzarella garlic bread. Both lacked any resemblance of Italian flavoring. The meatballs were overcooked and burnt on the outside. Also, no flavor to them. The bread had very little garlic flavor, dry and over cooked. Very disappointing meal. Our waiter, Tony, was friendly and attentive.... More

Following a dreadful dinner at Cask and Trotter the night before, I was hesitant to venture to one of their neighbors. But we were traveling in a pack with democratic rules. So, Buca di Beppo for dinner. Despite being a chain the food here was quite good. And because the food is served family style, the portions are huge. We... More

If you do not mind to have dinner with a big portion of pasta or another dish then this is the place for you :) I really enjoyed the service and obviously the meal. Also, the house red wine they serve is very good (tastes closer to a Malbec like wine). Dish suggestion: Stuffed Chicken, although be aware that even... More

My friends and I go to Buca at least once a year for dinner. We live across the water, so getting there involves a ferry and a taxi, which is interesting with 10 people, so we make a day of it. I always look forward to the fried mozzarella and the calamari. I always try something new when we go,... More

We had a reservation at another restaurant that got messed up so we went next door to Buca on short notice. The staff quickly set us up and handled our orders smoothly and efficiently. I really appreciated the good food and the great service.
