We enjoyed taking the whole family to Buca di Beppo for dinner. The family style portions were ample for all of our appetites and delicious too. They know how to handle a big table and the staff there was great. I heard that there's a special booth right in the kitchen upon request. That would be a great experience to... More

Buca is a place you go when you want reliably good Italian food in a casual atmosphere. The portions are huge, great for sharing, and their food is delicious. My only knock would be that we were seated near families with little kids who were using loud video games at the table. It would have been nice if the restaurant... More

We LOVED Buca's at their previous location... tonight for dinner, we brought my father whom is from out of town. We ordered the calamari, the Supremo Pizza and the sausage and chicken ziti. The food quality was HORRIBLE tonight! The bread was COLD... There was NO taste OR FLAVOR ON ANY OF THE FOOD... the pizza was soggy... the calamari... More

Another great meal at a Buca di Beppo; consistently a worthwhile experience. The hearty portions, great service, good drinks, fun atmosphere, and kitschy Italian American stereotype charm makes dining at any of their restaurants worth it.

This little restaurant is sort of tucked into a corner, and I suppose if you have a window seat (there aren't many) you might have a view of the lake. The overall ambience is...well, is "Italian restaurant" an ambience? There's music playing in the background, people are talking, lighting is dimmed, lots of pictures and kitsch on the walls. I...

We were staying the weekend and decided to get some food here per a recommendation. Wasn't disappointed. The food we ordered was delicious and tasty, it had flavor, we were also pleasantly surprised at their Fruta de mari (pretty sure I didn't spell that right) but it's their seafood pasta and it came with muscles, shrimp, baby clams and squid...

Every Buca which we have ever been to serves good food-this one is not an exception. We had Chicken Marsala and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Service was good, with even the manager asking how things went.

Great family style Italian food, and an outstanding waiter. He was knowledgeable and helpful. The salad was good as was the lasagna.

First off this place only serves family style which means every order is supposed to feed multiple people. The problem is most of the stuff that says it will feed 2-3 people is really just a over expensive normal plate of food. To make it worse, as far as Italian goes it's really not good, just tastes like pasta with... More
