Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

If your whole party likes the same type of food, then this restaurant is for you. They serve family style, so one order will feed 4-6 people and the servings are generous.

We had a wonderful waitress who was fun and we barely made a dent in the pasta dish we ordered.

Buca di Beppo is a must for people who have never been there. The food is family style - like Chinese food. You order something, and split it amongst your party. The atmosphere is unique and very entertaining - the walls are covered with Italy-related pictures and posters. Be sure to take time to walk around, and to find the Pope table! There's a highly coveted table that overlooks the kitchen, where you can watch the chefs cook. Unfortunately, it's in a busy walkway that most all patrons take to get to their tables, so I don't recommend it. The food is plentiful. A "small" salad feeds at least 4 people. My husband and I split a small Chicken Parmesan, and there's always leftovers. Be warned you might need reservations if it's a busy night. The broccoli was a bit unimpressive, so don't waste time on ordering that. Otherwise, the food is very good (not amazing, but flavorful) and the restaurant is fun.

First visit to this restaurant. For 2 people, a small salad and one small dish was more than enough. Ate all the salad and took home 1/2 of pasta dish. This place is made for large groups, abit loud but made the experience good. Don't go for quiet meal.

We were in need of a dinner and this restaurant was located in front of our hotel. We did take it to go which is not a problem. the portions are huge! The food was good, but not homemade Italian quality. I would try it again so it isn't one to cross off your list.
