“Take out it is”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2013

We get take out from here frequently. There tends to be quite a wait for a table especially on weekends. Chicken parm is delish, and the chicken penne arrabiata is also great. We've enjoyed the salmon pesto, but look out for the bevy of roasted garlic cloves! Eat it together so your breath doesn't overpower your company.

The atmosphere here is really great. I have been here several times and have not been disappointed. The staff is always friendly and the food is always great. I love their menu as there is always so much to choose.

“average quality food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2012

I think that this place is overrated and overpriced. We ordered 10 different dishes and nothing stood out as great or even above average.

“Not the greatest but still good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2012

Italian food is subjective, some is better than others. Buca di Beppo is not the greatest, but it is consistent in quality. What makes up for the food is that it is a great place for friends to gather and for family birthdays.

“Family fun”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2012

This is where it's more about the company you're with than the quality of the food you are eating. Fun and o.k., but not great
