We were celebrating our son, grandson, and my birthdays. There were 10 of us. It is a fun place especially for families with kids. The food is okay, but not exceptional. Maybe I feel that way because I am Italian. The kids love the food, but mainly because they get plain pasta with butter and cheese only. The adults shared... More

Food (seafood and fettuccine) was good. Ambience (physical and noise) was terrible. The restaurant is in desperate need of a face-lift. Feeling is old, dirty, and needing repair. The back of my booth rocked enough to put a baby to sleep. That would not happen, however, given the 4 or 5 waiters who clapped and shouted (I have no idea... More

I went there several time for a large group event due to its location that is near my office. I am not too excited about the dated decorations. The food is just about average to say the least. Some dishes are actually cold, personally I like hot dishes hot.

I hate to give a less than stellar review because we've always liked Buca Di Beppo but I have to rate it as average this time. We came in and waited just 15 minutes for seating in a corner room in the far back. The waitress was polite but it was incredibly obvious that they were terribly understaffed. As we... More

This place serves family style portions of small and large. Food was excellent and they go all out with birthdays! While we were there they did 5 birthdays on a Monday night! Every person got a sign pointing to them as the birthday person and then the wait staff brought a big candle lit with a dessert and sang their... More

This Italian restaurant is the best in town and I recommend the pizza and any of the dessert... the restaurant and staff are all wonderful. If it is your first time to visit this restaurant, you let them know and they will give you a quick tour of the place before they take you to your table. They have a... More

Even though a lot of locals like this, I've been to Italy several times, and this ain't it. OK food, but not really Italian. Lots of tomato sauce, a bit too oily. Kids love it and so do my parents!

We chose Buca di Beppo because it was close to our hotel. The interior is very kitschy Italian and the menus had pictures, so some of my colleagues did not have high expectations. I actually liked the interior and the food was very good, especially the apple Gorgonzola salad and the spicy pizza. The service was attentive and I actually... More
