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.

Much to my surprise my waiter Jason is from Reggio Calabria, Italy, a city on the mainland side of the Strait of Messina with Sicily 2.5 miles accross the strait. I had been there a year ago on my way to Sicily. Thank you Buca for the free meal on Veteran's day. Great Italian food with a real Italian feel.

They are incredible with a big group. I've never seen a restaurant run so smoothly and efficiently with large groups in house. Friendly staff that went above and beyond!!

Great value, good menu with choices for everyone. Spaghetti marinara are great, lasagnas are too rich, pizzas are delicious but they take forever to come out of the kitchen. And my favorite, a Seafood pasta, a little spicy with lots of mussels, and various other seafood mixed in with a very good red sauce. Great option for families parties and such where a gorup can order oen or more platters and share.

Buca di Beppo is a chain, so I suppose most folks know what to expect, but it's a good thing I brought friends to this party. All of the items are served family-style and a la carte, so everyone will usually be eating the same meal and a well-rounded presentation will require a few extra bills. The food is good, but not so outrageously desirable that I can't satisfy an Italian-food-craving from a more accommodating (and inexpensive) menu.
