Buca di Beppo - Champaign
Woo hoo!I come from a big Italian family, so we are ways very skeptical of Italian restaurants. Buca di Bepo, however, blew us away. The atmosphere was very unique and we had a very friendly server. The food was phenomenal, and my family sets high standards for Italian restaurants. We ordered our food family style, which allowed everyone to try everything. They served large portions, and that made it feel like we were right at home at our own Italian family dinner. I will definitely go back!!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for groups!We went for my sons college graduation celebration and it was very good! We were a group of 9 and ours servers were very attentive .Being Italian,I thought the food was pretty darn good! We definitely would go back!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFun family timeThe food was excellent but the wait time was too long for having a reservation. No non-alcoholic beer was available-not acceptable at a major restaurant like this one. The portions were enough for sharing and nobody went home hungry.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Place with Great FoodI was looking for a place to celebrate my son's graduation. I booked the reservation and was surprised to find out that the restaurant was off the food court at the mall. When we got there it was very nice and the food was very good. We all enjoyed the experience.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe finally got a chance toWe finally got a chance to check this place out, and we were not disappointed! I came with my husband and his parents to celebrate my husband's birthday. He's a private shy person so he didn't want a big scene for his birthday just a nice dinner with family. We got there at dinner time, set up a reservation on-line ahead of time just in case it was too busy. We got 2 pasta dishes (small) and it was more than enough to share and have extra for the 4 of us. I like the ambiance, so much to look at and it seems to be all Italian inspired. I would definitely recommend this place to others!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, reservationFood was good, reservation was waiting on us and had a pleasant evening with friends4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service! lovedGreat food and service! loved going here with my college daughter4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThumbs up!We had an excellent dinner for our pre-marathon carbo load.

Not many people dining when we were there yet we were all put in the same smaller part of the dining room. Too cramped. Otherwise no complaint.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for lunch because individualGood for lunch because individual portions are possible.
We also went in the evening with another couple. Such large portions required and then sharing did not set right with any of us. We may have lunch but no more evening meals!!3/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
