Looking for a great family environment with excellent service and good food, try Buca di Beppo. Food served family style. Salads are outstanding, other entrees tend to be average for a good Italian restaurant. Chicken Parmesan and Carbonara pasta were very tasty. If you want desserts, error on the small size or one less entrees to save room. They are... More

A very pleasant and filling meal prepared perfectly. The service was second to none and the establishment was clean and happy. The servers appeared to like working here. It is pretty large so I'm sure it can get busy and loud at times but tonight it was perfect. No wait, cold draft beer, very pleased. For decent Italian it's a... More

My husband and I went to Buca because we had received a gift card for Christmas and were in the area. We went on a weekday around 1:30 and there were very few other tables. The dining room we were seated in smelled like mildew and wet towels and we were seated in between the only other two (very loud)... More

Since having recent surgery, our Christmas Day meal plans were unsettled until I found Buca di Beppo was open for Christmas Day! Having eaten wonderful food here several times in the past few years, my wife and I decided to try our luck with an Italian Christmas Day Meal. The Baked Rigatoni and Side Meatballs were GREAT! The servings were... More

All entrees are served family style so you choose between a "feeds 2 person" (=1 Big mans single portion) or "feeds 4 or 5" (=2 big men's sharing portions). So me (a big man), my hungry wife and the famished wee one split a couple of normal size appetizers (caprizi & calimari) and a couple of 2 person entrees, and... More

We went here to celebrate my sisters birthday while my whole family was in town. It was a great place to go with a large group of people. We all were able to share multiple dishes since the portions are huge!
