Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

If you are looking for a quite Italian dinner for a couple or two, this is the wrong place; however, if you are looking to celebrate a special occasion with a group or simply enjoy a dinner with a group of friends or family, Buca di Beppo is an excellent choice. Everything is family style and ½ portions are said to be for two while full portions are supposedly for four but if you follow these guidelines, you better be hungry and/or expect to take leftovers home. To take the best advantage, one should really come with a party of six or better so one can order a variety of ½ portions to share without having way too much. Everything about this place is loud and festive; from the décor to the bright colors to the large groups celebrating birthdays and other occasions. We came here as part of a party of 16 for a family celebration. Service was attentive and prompt, especially for such a large group, the food was very good but not exceptional and pricing was very reasonable for the quality and quantity. We all had a great time and look forward to the opportunity of a return.

We were grateful to find a restaurant open on Christmas day and it would be easy to understand if the staff wasn't thrilled to be working but not these guys. They took good care of us and made the holiday fun. Thank you!

First off let me say the positives -food was good and our waiter was excellent. However, the first half of our visit was terrible. The hostess was very rude and frankly just made me angry. Secondly I found dark hairs on my "clean plate" I was given with my bread just like another reviewer on here said. Even though I really liked our waiter, I'm still heading to Olive Garden next time where the service from the time you walk in to the time you leave is great. Also, paying $40 for pizza was kind of high I though.

This restaurant has a fun "Little Italy" vibe which is great for our extended family of four kids. Fun place and our waiter was full of personality.

The food is above average and the family portion sizes make this a popular restaurant. The decor is fun, giving you something to talk about while eating. Our service was attentive and fun.
