    The food was excellent! Desssert was wonderful! The Atmosphere and service was Delightful. The only hiccup we encountered was when the bill came to the table. One guest had ordered a chicken dish and thought it was for one price , but it was the "Family Style" price. Perhaps the sercvver could have explained that when we ordered as first timers. $22.00 for four pieces of chicken was a shock. Otherwise the experince was fun and we plant to return on the next Birthday!

    We had a party with 22 people and we were able to have a room all to ourselves. Ther service was great and the food was delicious. I was floored by the final bill, though, as I was planning about $20/person and it turned out to be more like $40... If you are having a large party I recommend YOU pick the dishes before getting there instead of letting each table order their own stuff.

    The place was packed, but after that last min reservation on open table we waiting maybe 10 min after our reservation for a table. It was very nice and the staff was great. There were many tables split apart for couples because it was valentines day so couples were in and out which allowed for quick service. It wasn't until the end of our dinning experience that a large group came into the small room we were sitting in and caused us to decide to leave before getting desert.

    Dined on 2/14/2014
    This was a Valentine's Day dinner and the place was very busy as I would expect. The staff exuded a genuine friendliness and made us feel more than welcome. This started with the (complimentary) valet parking, the hostess, wait staff, kitchen staff and anyone we came in contact with. The ambience was excellent, the lighting, the pictures, and the use of Italian décor. The 1893 salad was one of highlights of our meal and. The family style menu was good, since my wife and I both love veal parm. The food was only rated as "good" because the breading on the veal was mushy, the veal quite chewy, and the marinara sauce quite plain with no outstanding flavor. Not sure if any of this was due to the overwhelming turnout for Valentine's Day.

    This was my first time coming to the restaraunt after years of driving past. I was pleasantly surprised when we got inside and they took us through the kitchen and have us a tour before we were seated which was pretty cool. Everyone was super friendly and the service was too notch, never had to ask for a thing. The food was amazing as well such big portions and everything was great. Can't wait to come back again.

    We were celebrating my daughters birthday and we splurged and spent plenty. We had a party of six and u accommodate us with ease and enjoyment. I had four ppl that had not been there before and before we left we made reservations for valentines day dinner to bring another couple with us who has not been there before. This will difinitely be a regular place for us. From the first bite of bruschetta to the last suculant bite of desert food hit the spot. We all left in a food coma

    I initially took my family members to Buca di Beppo because one of them refused to believe it was a real restaurant with such a crazy name. At the end of the night, he had become a lover of this wonderful place, just like I am. It was a first time get together for some of my family, and it was one of the best nights I have had in a while. Our server Heather was lovely, and the food was delicious. Thank you for giving me everything I have come to expect from this place.

    We had been to Buca two weeks prior, and enjoyed it. We decided to return with our children and my sister's family. Although the food was still very good- even the kids' portions are huge, the service was slow, and at times rude. At one point, the waitress threw the to go bin down on the table. She always made us feel as though we were an inconvenience. Although we had a very pleasant first experience, this one left a bad impression. Perhaps she made a false assumption that because we were using a coupon she would not get a full tip. If she had done a good job, that certainly would not have been the case. We are always careful to tip on the total before the discount. We were quite disappointed.

    The food was extremely good. HOWEVER, None of my party of eight(8), were happy about the style of "family dining" we encountered. At the prices of the items, we limited to 3 and some were not happy about the chosen meals. Less food and better prices would have enabled each to have their pick and a better variety for all.

    Great for large family or group we dined with 13 was able to sit all together at a round table love the sections were your party is treated like its a private party we are a loud group it was ok to be cause others were not next to us loved the larger proportions ordered a few dishes and shared very nicely with a decent price per dish. Only cons was that the parking lot is very small so you have to park in near by business the restaurant get very busy the night we went was extremely cold and we had to walk far to the car they do offer free valet but line is very long with just 2 attendants also there is lots of racy nude photographs and statutes as deco and I had children with me rather they not be able to see all the male nudity.

    We went to Bucca for my sister's 45th and my aunt's 50th birthdays. We had a group of 7 and sat in the back in a very quaint little spot, it was perfect. We were given the tour of the restaurant, some of us had never been to a Bucca di Beppa. Our server, John was fabulous, he took great care of us. The food was exceptional and the atmosphere was exactly what we wanted. Bucca made my sister's and my aunt's birthdays the memories that we were hoping for. We can't wait to go back.

    The food was great as usual and the selection and quanitys were more then adequate. The service was very good. I would have gave five stars except for two reasons. There was no adjustments for our birthday coupon for free dessert, as she wanted that famous chocolate cake and not a brownie, and most important, the pasta dish she ordered would have been five stars if she could have had fresh parmesan cheese that she requested. They told her that the kitchen did not have it. Why this place, famous for italian, would not have fresh parmesan when even the Olive Garden provides this, I can not understand. Please provide me with an answer to that. Thanks, Te birthday girls dad.

    The food was delicious and we got so much bang for our buck! We had dinner for the rest of the week due to leftovers! The meatballs were to die for, they just melted in my mouth. The caboclos were equally a hit with the group! Out servers did a great job at explaining the sizes and menu options, what kind of appetizers we should order and with what kind of entree. It was a great and fun experience. We will definitely be returning!

    Buca's staff is very good and did a very good job on Christmas Eve as they were jammed. They were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. This restaurant is geared to large groups as they are known for their family dining but their small options accommodate 2 people well. Their salads are good as is their whole wheat pasta. They have many different rooms all decorated with Italian memorabilia and is fun. We will go there again.
