We were seated promptly and out waiter was right there. Drink order went in and once received our food order was taken and shortly after our meal appeared. Perfect timing for everything. As usual food was great. Will be back again. Thank you.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Chicken ParmesanWent there for Mother's Day 2013 and had the best chicken parm I have ever had. The chicken was so moist. My teenage sons and I had a blast since the atmosphere was not stiff.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Italian FoodI've never been disappointed with anything! The wait staff always are there to help in anyway possible. We wanted to bring home some tiramisu and was astounded that it was made fresh just for us.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day dinnerWe made reservations for Mother's Day at 6pm. We arrived just before 6pm and it was packed but we were able to be seated within 10 minutes of arriving. We had a party of 4 and our waitress was very attentive. We ordered chicken parm and the penne san remo. These are our favorite dishes at this restaurant. I always feel that we pay a little too much at this restaurant which is why we only go there on special occasions. We ordered a large chicken parm, large penne san remo, water, 2 sodas and a small Bud Light and with tip it was $85.00. We really enjoy Bucca di Beppo because we know the food is always consistent and absolutely delicious! Even though it is a little pricey for us, when we have the opportunity to splurge, we choose Bucca!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLot's of funThe portions are family style so plan to take home leftovers. We ordered the brownie sundae for 4 for dessert. We had so much fun trying to finish it. The decorations are whitty and funny conversation starters.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe brought our 92 yr GrandmotherWe brought our 92 yr Grandmother and asked for a table close to entrance and it was great.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with more thanGreat food with more than ample amount for a good price. Definitely going back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy daughter reccommended youMy daughter reccommended you for our special occcassion dinner. She knows I'm finicky. I would reccomend you to others. The only thing that I wasn't pleased with is I ordered chicken Parm and in all the years and in all the state i've eaten in you are the first that didn't have lingiune accompany the chicken parm. Pasta is not that expensive that it could not be included with the dinner.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and service. AbundantGreat Food and service. Abundant servings. We ordered a wide variety and each dish was beyond our expectations. Party of seven,and everyone raved about it.

Service and food were great. Wish they had some of these where I live on Long Island.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMit was my first time to Bucait was my first time to Buca Di Beppo. My daughter is a college student in the area, and during a visit with her,she suggested we go there for dinner with a few friends. The food was delicious, our waiter knew just how much food we should order (since evertything is family style.) We will definetely be coming back. Also, the online reservations are great, we were seated at the exact time of our reservation. Being in a busy area, most of the restaurants have long waits, but not here, it was great!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe come here every time weWe come here every time we are in the Albany area and we will be coming more as my daughter just chose to attend a university in the area. We were there to celebrate, a little disappointed that they were out of cannoli early on a Sat night.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the food and the staffLove the food and the staff we had an amazing evening4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were at Buca di Beppo onWe were at Buca di Beppo on Easter Sunday, March 31st. We arrived earlier than our reservation time, however, we were seated immediately. Our server was great (I wish I remember his name). The food was quite plentiful and was served at the perfect temperature. The chicken parm was out of this world! The portions were huge - everything we order we had again for dinner last night!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, good service, andGood food, good service, and priced right; what more do you want3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFriends and I visited to haveFriends and I visited to have lunch in celebration of my birthday.We sat at the kitchen table and had a great time.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe highly recommend open tableWe highly recommend open table reservations, as it gets very busy for dinner time. Food is consistently delicious, great mini meatball apps, great sauce,entrees are very large (even small are huge) and delicious salads. We enjoy a booth in the bar area for a smaller party. Service is good, but can get a little long when they are super busy.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe felt the price of foodWe felt the price of food was way over priced. We thought it would be an easy way to get together and split meals, but everyone wanted different things. I would probably go back with one other person, but not with a big group.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and food.Excellent food and plenty of choices. Portions were huge.
Our waiter, Kyle, did an excellent job to help us determine how much food we needed for our group because everything is served family style.
We had a group of 6 adults and they didn't rush us.
The only downside is the noise level and the seating. It was a little challenging to have a conversation with a large group. We were seated in a booth and we had 4 adults who are over 6' tall (not heavy) so it was a bit tight.
Overall we were very happy and we'd return. Excellent service and food for a reasonable price.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat eatsFood and serrvice was fabulous. Reasonable prices. Definitely going back.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful.Everything was wonderful. The prices are a but high for the quality of the foot. However the atmosphere beats any other chain restutant in the area.2/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
