Visited a friend in Cincinnati on Christmas Day. It was last minute decision to try this place. It was a very busy night and packed. we waited for almost an hour outside to be seated which was fine. Food was good! Thanks for saving us for a Christmas dinner.

This was my first visit to Buca di Beppo. We were meeting with friends and were looking for great food without breaking the bank. My friends are all college students. We each ordered something to add to the overall family style of the meal. We were presented with plenty of food and every dish was tasty and distinctive. Pasta dishes,... More

5:15 reservation. Finally seated at 6pm. Only then were we told they were out of the turkey dinner special ...on Thanksgiving. That was the only reason we went there. They would not sub anything else as they were almost out of mashed potatoes too. No offer of compensating with anything else...just told to pick something else on the menu. No... More

Ate here for the first time in a couple of years, yesterday. Took family to lunch and had a great time. Never order one dish per person; at least 2 or 3 can share a "small."

We have only dined in once, but we have gotten the tiramisu for take out on numerous occasions. It is a huge portion, easily feeding 4 adults. Super, super good.

My wife and I had a pleasant lasagna dinner with garlic bread and a Blue Moon for about $31.00 including tip thanks to a coupon. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. Only negative were two rather unappetizing photos of very fat men above our table! (lol). More of a place for larger groups but would eat there more often if the... More

Food was delicious with awesome portion sizes. The Sangria really was well paired with the food choices. Service was fair, but the atmosphere is cozy and romantic if the occasion calls for it.

This was our first visit to this location, having eaten at the Indianapolis location previously. As expected the food was good and the service was great. It's a family friendly restaurant that serves share-sized portions, all at a fair price. Plenty of seating, no waiting on a Monday evening at dinner time.
