  • "My wife and I have been to this location several times as it is close to our home. The food is always great. We always get something different, and everything we have ever ordered has been great. We talked to our server about the pizza, as that is something we have never ordered. We will be back soon to try a pizza and have a salad."

  • "Buca di Beppo was recommended by my husband's co-worker. We have returned several times...with friends! The staff has been very cordial each time, making us feel not only welcome but special. Our favorite appetizer is the Mini Meatballs but that's just the 'warm-up' for the lasagna! Of course, we enjoy the salads with our meal - that would be either the Mixed Green Salad or the Apple Gorgonzola. It is definitely worth the 45-minute drive for the food, the service and the atmosphere."

    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Buca is one of my favorites to take friends and family to. The food is served family style, meaning you order for the whole table, not just individuals. The Italian Sodas with cream are outstanding. The Dark Chocolate cake is the best chocolate cake around. Make sure you fill your wallet before you come. It's not exactly cheap."

  • "Our Family did not have a good experience at the Strongsville Buca Di Beppo. The waiter was not all that friendly, made us feel very uncomfortable. Was not happy or upbeat, never wished me happy mothers day. Never explained the best way to order food and assist us with how to order from the menu. Never got to eat Pasta, spend $64.00 for two entrees, no pasta, no salad, didn't know that bread with oil came to the table. The Servcie was awful. Even tho it was Mother's Day, I didn't need to feel like I was inconveniencing the server. WE all came home feeling very disappointed and a very big let down. I had made reservations and thought it was going to be a very enjoyable dinner. We were seated in the bar area and I wasn't happy in it"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Our entire party of 22 family members raved about every detail of the restaurant and the dinner. Everything was great! We will be back for sure. We booked in advance. From the first phone call to the take home bags, everything was top notch."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food was excellent, the waitress was extremely nice and considerate and gave special attention to us. The small portions are even large we took food home with us. My son first introduced us to here and we have been coming ever since then."

  • "My experiences from much traveling is that, Buca di Beppo's has truly never let me down. Whether in Indianapolis, Naples, Las Vegas, Atlanta; ALL my experiences in service and food were outstanding. Atmosphere and ambiance is warm, friendly, & caring without a doubt. I recently took some local friends to the Strongsville, OH establishment to reflect my appreciation in their mentoring in my life. Needless to say, We had a wonderful time with lasting impressions that will continue bringing us back to Buca's. Thank ALL of you... jker"

  • "I had a party of 6 and they expected us to cram into a booth that at any other restaurant would fit 4 people comfortably. After demanding we be moved they finally found another booth that had a open end that they placed a chair for the 6th person. This new table was still small, but way more comfortable then the first booth. The place was loud and it wasn't even fully occupied. Our party was having to rise our voices to talk to each other. On top off all the ambiance issues, the food was average at best and it was expensive compared to other Italian restaurants. I will not be patronizing this restaurant again."

  • "We chose Buca to help celebrate the kids being home from college for the summer. The grandparents joined us, which was a big reason why we picked Buca. It can always accommodate a large group. The food seemed better than usual as we had the spaghetti with meatballs, penne a la vodka, and chicken parmesan. The flavors were spot on. For dessert we tried the Italian crème cake - yumMMMM! As always, we'll be back!"

  • "We had a great time getting 4 generations together for a mini reunion. The good was perfect and there was something for everyone. A great experience."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "I had not been to Buca di Beppo for a year or two, and the food was even better than I remembered it. We had salad, lasagne, stuffed shells and chicken parmesan, and all were excellent. Our server was attentive to our needs throughout the dinner. An excellent meal--I plan to return soon."

  • "We'd totally enjoyed ourselves. Good food, portions more than generous and service was excellent."

  • "I have eaten here before and was so impressed I wanted to bring my family. They really enjoyed the food and the kids especially enjoyed the Brownie Colasso Sundae. ( Which we had a free coupon for, thank you very much) We will be returning soon. The prices are amazing."

  • "We all had a great time. Because of the variety the teens and adults all found something they loved and even tried new dishes."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "We had a party of 6 and ended up ordering various things and splitting everything. Love the family style serving. We had the Caesar and antipasti salads, the baked ziti, the stuffed chicken breast, the Italian supreme pizza, and finished all that off with Tiramisu and chocolate cake. We also got the bruschetta, which was good but boring compared to the rest of the food."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "ALL OUR FAMILY WERE VERY PLEASED WITH THE ATMOSPHERE AND FOOD AND SERVICE WAS EXCEPTIONAL. CHICKEN MARSALA WAS TO DIE FOR AND SPAGETTI WAS GREAT AS ALWAYS"
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "Love all the decorations, but anything that has nude or close to for the art should be removed. Kids think its funny and at times its embarrassing. Make the"family style dining" really for the family!"
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We didn't tell anyone about the birthday part, but our group of 16, no 12, no 13, no 12 again... were out Saturday night. People kept adding and bailing on us and the staff at Buca took it in stride. We were seated immediately and the family style food was explained in detail. We were never waiting for food, or saying how hungry we were. Brian, our waiter, was excellent, there when we needed him but not 'hanging around' every minute. Great food, great experience, decent price...lots of fun."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "It is difficult for a mere couple to dine here. It is much more fun for groups to order and share these family-style dishes. We and another couple come when we see the 4 for $40 offer--garlic (yes, real garlic) bread, salad, and a pasta dish enough for four people. Despite the large serving sizes, the food is served hot and the sauce is well-balanced (not too tangy). The ravioli with meat sauce was served covered with ground beef! Although the huge desserts are enticing, we had to decline. We left full and satisfied! By the way, the staff is friendly and efficient."

  • "This restaurant is Family style dining, so a great place to catch up with the family while you pass a bowl of pasta around. Food is great too!"
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The food and service was fantastic!! We will be back!!!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Your food is beyond delicious! My only problem is that a salad or bread isn't provided with the entree without an additional cost. The prices are a little high not to have those extras provided. Also, I ordered the chicken marsalla (sp.?) which was the BEST! But usually it is served with mashed potatoes not just a platter of meat."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Attention to us was very nice. Ambiance was cool - loved the rooms & decorations - and everything was VERY clean, including the restrooms (but they were FREEZING!). Our waiter was awesome - very nice and pleasant, and checked on us several times. Pizza was just okay in taste. Garlic bread was very good. Spaghetti and meatballs - the meatballs were good and very large - but I thought the sauce was very bland, and there wasn't much of it. It was kind of watery and didn't really stick to the noodles. Food left something to be desired/and VERY pricey. We had a $10 off coupon/bill was still $60.00 for 2 kids and 2 adults. Not what I call reasonable in pricing."

  • "Had a late lunch celebrating our Moms birthday. Dave was our waiter and did a wonderful job. The food is very good and the service is just great. The staff knows just how much food you will need. Very little left over. Great Job"

  • "My husband and I eat Gluten-free. My In-laws are extremely picky. I have a 3 year old. WE ALL LOVED IT! It was so good that my Mother-In-Law tried our our Apple Gorgonzola Salad and she was happy with our options."
    Dined on 3/11/2014
  • "Service was excellent for our server was attentive and even went out of his way to accomodate the children in the group. The rigatoni was very spicy. Too spicy for most in the party. The stuffed shells and garlic cheese bread were outstanding and got rave reviews from the party. The salad was delicious also. If the pasta was less spicy Bucca would have had a perfect score. We'll be back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Food was Great! Service was friendly! Bucca is always nice for groups it's family style with out having all thw work & it's unique atmosphere is fun as well ! We kept our waiter running & he did a marvelous job!"

  • "There was a group of 10 of us for our Mom's birthday. Our server was excellent. She was so personable and had a good knowledge of the menu and took the time to explain how everything worked as some of us were first timers. At the end of the evening we went out to ours cars only to find that my husband had surprised me with a new car!!"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "When you walk in, your server asks if you've been here before. Then you get a tour of the restaurant as you walk to your table. The food is good. I like what I ordered, but serving sizes are big but I'm a big eater so the portion size we got I could have eaten myself. The downside was when it came time for the check. It did take a while to get the check."
