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.

Don't do this to yourself. The atmosphere is just silly, and the food is all drowned in a very average marinara sauce. I just don't see the point in going here when there are perfectly mediocre jars of spaghetti sauce at the local grocery store.

Seating was great. got to walk through the kitchen on our way to our table. There even is a table you can reserve IN THE KITCHEN so you can see the chef's at work. Great food.

Buca was recommended to us as great Italian fine dining. With all the fantastic authentic Italian restaurants in Naples, Florida our expectation bar was high. We were underwhelmed. It was not the Italian fine dining we were expecting. It is a kitchy chain with huge portions of heavy unimaginative food and drink. If that is what you are after, it delivers.

Buca di Beppo has become a favorite for us two old timers. The prices just can't be beat for a decent meal with generous proportions, especially at dinner with their frequently printed coupons. We always need a box to go. The ambiance is interesting with walls adorned with hundreds of intriguing Italian themed photographs throughout their various small and intimate dining rooms, hallways and even restrooms. Meals accompanied by Italian and American pop music, think Frank Sinatra, Perry Como, Dean Martin even Mario Lanza with some opera, always played at the right volume. We have experienced only excellent service, but we ALWAYS eat early. So dining in Naples high winter season at 6:30 - 8 PM Buca may be especially crowded. While the food is not spectacular, it is always very good and well cooked. The soup of the day is delicious and freshly made. Wine is rather expensive compared to the meal prices, but not excessively so. Only the the very thin crusted pizza edges slightly burnt, left much to be desired. Don't expect gourmet Italian food, but very satisfying.
