    This is an awesome restaurant to celebrate time with family. The food is so delicious and served family style. As you enter the restaurant, you are given a tour as if you were a guest in their house. You even go through the kitchen. The decorations and noise level are authentic of an Italian family.

    We were seated right away and drink orders taken. The waitress approached our table and treated us as if we were a table of college age people instead of a family raining in ages from 6 to 70. The food was too, but service was spotty at times.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/28/2014
    My wife and I have been wanting to eat here for some time. We decided to celebrate our 43rd anniversary here. We loved it! the food was awesome and abundant! Our server (and bartender)took time to chat with us and took a request to Chef regarding low sodium dishes and brought us Chef's recommendations. Everything was perfect and we took home A LOT of food and a Tiramisu that lasted for 3 more serving each!.... all in all it was amazing.

    I would suggest the servers discuss whats included in kids meals and the size of deserts. Our kids ordered ice-cream and it was extra and we ordered Taramasu and it was huge. Enough for 6 people and also 11. The bill was higher than we thought for a family of 5 considering the quality of food was just OK. We will go again but not as frequent.

    Buca Di Beppo is a great place to go with the family or a group of friends, the servings are huge, so be very hungry or be careful with getting too carried away. Good price for the food, no question about this. Very difficult to park, so go with time you might need to go around several times to get a spot. Make sure you use open table to make a reservation otherwise you will wait for long time. Enjoy your visit as we did

    We really enjoyed the atmosphere and food at Bucca di Beppo. Everything is family style and there were 8 of us so it was perfect! The server didn't exceed expectations, he felt overwhelmed because the kitchen was backed up and reflected it in his service towards us. He did take care of our needs but was not overly friendly or quick to carrying on a conversation with anyone at our table. The noise level was higher than your average restaurant but this was due to most parties were groups in the restaurant. It's cool that they take you through the kitchen and we had plenty of food for everyone. Nice portion sizes for the price-really balances out! PLUS there's coupons online if you sign up for their rewards program that helps.

    We love Buca di Beppo. We try to make it every few months because the food is so good. The prices will appear higher to first timers, but once you see the portions, it'll make sense. This is really for groups or people who want to take a lot home. Every time we come, we try to get something new and so far, have not been disappointed.

    We went for a weekday lunch to celebrate a birthday. We made a reservation expecting it to be busy (from past experience). But when we got there, the parking lot was practically empty and so was the restaurant. There were two servers/hosts at the front, who looked bored; they seated us and gave us the menu. This is where we got a surprise. The prices hat Buca have gone up considerably, compared to other similar restaurants--could that be the reason for so few patrons at the restaurant? The ambiance was the same as before, as I could remembered; menu choices were similar; food was good but not great. The server was not too interested, so service was okay. I would think twice about going here again.

    I came here with my family and some friends for my 21st birthday. My family brought a cake as well and the staff was great with keeping in the kitchen for us and then bringing it out. They even did all of this without me even knowing! They were very attentive and helpful. And the food is AMAZING! My family used to come here all the time and loved it then too.

    Our monthly Lunch Bunch members dined at Buca this last week and it was WONDERFUL! The setting is so cozy and comfortable and the food is to die for. This was the first time most members of the group had eaten here and they were unanimously enthusiastic about their food choices. We had some fun trying different food options in the "small" portions just so we could see the difference with "large" portions, although we all ordered the individual lunch portions for our main meal. And our server was very attentive and helped us through our exploration. We'll definitely be back!

    Quality of food very good when it finally arrived. 6:00 reservation and seated on time in empty room, few customers in restaurant. Next family arrived, including very active child, were seated in booth next to ours, even though room had 8-10 other tables and no other customers. Order placed by 6:10, food arrived about 7:00. Waitress (one of several wait staff we saw, not sure what happened to original) said first lasagna was burned and they had to prepare another. Meanwhile I guess other 2 entrees sat under a heat lamp. Might have nice to be advised of delay and cause. RestAurant has a good reputation, but so do some others, which we will visit next time.

Our waiter was terrific and was able to answer questions regarding the menu that we had. Food is always good. My husband and I usually get the Chopped Salad and a small pasta dish and we always have food for dinner the next night.

    This is the second time to had our graduation dinner here. Great service, good food and perfect for our large hungry family. We were 30 minutes late for our reservation due to the graduation. I called to let them know and they kindly said, NO worries. We exceeded the closing time by an hour and they treated us with the utmost respect and did not try to rush us out. This was purely a pleasurable experience. Coming from a large north east Italian family. I felt at home and was treated amazingly. Thank You Buca di Beppo!

    We had a hungry family of seven adults looking for a place to eat. I remembered this restaurant from our anniversary. It delivered big time, we ordered the small Caesar Salad and three entree dishes. That was enough food to feed all of us and stilll have leftovers for everyone the next day. The food was good - Shrimp Pasta, Chicken Pasta and Spicy Pasta! The service was excellent and the out of town guests really enjoyed the tour of the kitchen and explanation of all the nostalgic decorations! This place is a must to consider if you are entertaining a large group and also want to keep costs down. Our total with tip averaged at $20 per person for 3 course meal with drinks.

    This was my first time eating a a Buca in about 5 years, and first time ever at this location. Everything about our experience was "sloppy". The staff all looked like they had rolled out of bed in last weeks uniform and come straight to work. They tried to seat our party of 8 at a table for 6. Most of the food was mediocre with a few exceptions being good. The house Chianti tasted like balsamic. Prices have gone up and quality has gone way down. It will take a lot to convince me to eat at one of their restaurants again.

At 2 I had it and spoke to the manager who got us a different table, we sat around 215, 1 hr after our reservation. The manager Apologized and said he will check on us. He never came back. Then I got a call they lost the signed receipt and I had to give them more information. Worse part is that there were 15 open tables before they sat us

    The food was great, as it always is. But don't bother getting a reservation, we had a 1:15 and finally got seated close to 2. The service was terrible, after asking for bread and the waitress telling us they were baking more, we got cold bread, that's odd. We got silverware 5 minutes after asking for it, really, thanks for letting out food cool down. I've had good experiences there before, but this was not one. If you can't handle the volume, then don't take 20-30 reservations for one time slot!!!

    Our experience was not good. It was Mother's Day dinner (night before) with our grown children. We had reservations at 7:15 but were not seated until 8:00. When we were seated the mgr came and asked us to move because he wanted to put another party there. Finally seated the waitress assigned us had a limited grasp of English, I don't believe she was an actual waitress. Sometimes I didn't see her for 10 minutes or more. Every part of our dinner order was incorrect. The mgr said he would comp the appetizer and dessert for such bad service but the check did not comp anything. My daughter who is a server at Houston's said it was the worst service she's ever seen anywhere. The Mgr came and comp'd 50% of the check. 2 1/2 hrs later we left

    Spaghetti and Meatballs: pasta was room temperature at best, meatballs were bland, stingy on the sauce. Fettuccine Alfredo: pasta just above room temperature, pasta dry, chicken dry, chicken tasted like turkey. Did not bother to take leftovers from either dish home. Mozzarella Garlic Bread was good, Apple Gorgonzola Salad was excellent. Tiramisu and lemon cake were very good. Seated two minutes prior to reservation time, restaurant was crowded and noisy as expected for a Saturday night, service was very slow. Won't eat there again.

    The food was good but the service was extremely slow and it was way too loud. The noise level was so bad that you could barely hear the people at our table. Our waitress took a very long time to come back to take our order. The food came out entirely too slow. We ordered drinks but they didn't come out at the same time - one person had to wait at least 10 minutes for her drink. It took way too long for our food to be delivered. Our salad took forever -- tables who ordered after us received all their food while we were still waiting on our salad. The assistant manager came over to apologize but this should not have happened at all. Inconsistent service and food delivery. They were very busy due to prom but it's still no excuse.
