It was Thanksgiving night and we had been traveling and just wanted a quick appetizer and a beer. The place was packed and we ordered the bruschetta. It came in a huge martini glass with about a dozen pieces of bread and lots of topping. It was fabulous and we watched the meals go by and everything looked great. Appears... More

My (ethnic Italian) mother was a fantastic cook and always prepared a tremendous spread at Thanksgiving and Christmas before Alzheimer's disease took that away from our family. But for many years now we've become part of the Buca di Beppo family for (at least) Thanksgiving dinner. First, I appreciate the fact that they're open on the holidays (very important)! But... More

We went with a group of 14 (mix of kids and adults), and the family style of eating really worked well. The staff was able to get us drinks, salad, appetizers, and dinner very quickly. We had the cesear salad. We got one large, and it wasn't enough for 14. We got cheese wedges, stuffed mushrooms (6), calamari - 3... More

Went to Buca's for lunch the other day- and although most of the food was "good", it just wasn't my Italian. Let's start with the apps- The waitress told me the Calamari was "the best"- actually- it was "the worst". Tough and way overcooked, we didn't even finish it. Very disappointing. The pasta dishes were tasty- and portions were large-... More

My ASSE group met here. The food was great, the service was outstanding. The private room was just right for our group.

Had not been back here in a while. The cavernous rooms with all the Italian motif photos totally covering the wall is unique.I once even held my office Christmas party in the Papal room with a single large round table. I had stopped going there because even though the portions were huge, I thought the quality of the food was... More

We made reservations for 8 pm on a Saturday night and were seated right away. The service was great - our waiter was funny and friendly and made great recommendations. This was our first time at Buca di Beppo so we did not know that the portion size is huge and a small is intended for 2-3 people. We were... More

I haven't been back in a few years. Originally they were pretty good than they got into big food, poor quality and cheap prices. Checking back in, I was sad to experience the same low standards. Pasta was gluttony, sauces were under seasoned and under inspiring. Prices were cheap and portions were huge.
