I always like ending a school trip with Buca di Beppo, it is just the perfect way to settle down with the kids and be a family. Let there be no doubt about it, this is a family place. It is loud, it is cluttered, it is homey, and there is A LOT of food. Their portions are extravagant, if... More

Have been to Buca for dinner many times before, this was my first lunch experience. I had the baked ziti and it was cooked to perfection. The beer was cold and the service was great.

We arrived at 5:40 and left at 6:15... all 200 were fed fettuccine Alfredo, spaghetti, chicken parmesan and cheese cake!!! Due to D.C. traffic we were VERY late for our reservation but we were VERY well taken care of! The food itself is average and it is served family style. The restaurant is full of interesting pictures and art work.... More

The portions are the largest I have ever seen. Service is really good. There is a strong cheese smell that I did not like. The spicy chicken pasta was good. The lasagna did not taste great. Great value for money though.

We needed a quick and easy dinner and this restaurant was convenient and did not have a wait. The servers were very nice and helpful, but food is not worth it. pasta with olive oil and vegetables was watery and very blah. Salad was average. There are so many great restaurants in DC, get out and explore. But if you... More

Really average Italian in a fun setting with completely disoriented staff when it comes to Italian cuisine. Definitely a "formula" experiment. Not worth experiencing twice. Fun but don't go for the dining experience. They don't even have cannoli or espresso.

I really like BDP as far as chain food goes. The chicken Parmesan is by far my favorite. I even love it cold the next morning! This location offered terrific service to our rowdy group of 6. The manager stopped by to check on us, our drinks were always full and the menu recommendations were spot on.

I was with a large party on a busy evening so that may account for the slow service. No one came back to refill our water or cocktails. By the time we were served, the pasta was either room temperature or cold (being seated at a long, family-style table against a wall, under an air conditioning vent didn't help). We... More
