“Such a homey feeling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

The atmosphere here is really great. I have been here several times and have not been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and the food is always great. I love their menu as there is always so much to choose.

“average quality food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

I think that this place is overrated and overpriced. We ordered 10 different dishes and nothing stood out as great or even above average.

“Not the greatest but still good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 21, 2012

Italian food is subjective, some is better than others. Buca di Beppo is not the greatest, but it is consistent in quality. What makes up for the food is that it is a great place for friends to gather and for family birthdays.

“Family fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2012

This is where it's more about the company you're with than the quality of the food you are eating. Fun and o.k., but not great

“Well....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

I love the atmosphere and the service was wonderful. However, the food was either very bland or over the top. I added salt to my fettuccine Alfredo and spaghetti and meatballs and the taste improved 100%. The family size portions are great, but sometimes the size does take away from something as simple as seasoning.
