    This is an especially fun restaurant to go to for any reason at all. Normally we dine there in a large group and are fortunate to be seated in the Pope's Room. However, this time we were a smaller party and I requested the Kitchen Table through Open Table, and we got it! We were so excited to be seated in the kitchen; being able to experience all that goes beyond behind the scenes. We were part of everyone's tour too! The delicious food came up quickly and was piping hot! Such an enjoyable night.

    This is really a great place to be. Wonderful, friendly environment, beautiful pictures - especially Italian cinematography from 60s (great period!!!). Food - the BEST in the area. For those who loves to eat -- I can't recommend better place. Very good service, looks like people who provide service - enjoy their work. Nice place for parties.

    Dined on 8/3/2014
    This is a fun and very silly place with kitsch wall decorations that recall New York's Little Italy in the 50's. The food is delicious New York style Italian food, the stuff I grew up on, and the prices are reasonable. That's why our family goes there on special occasions. We're always treated well and never leave hungry (nor are we hungry for days after).

    We took my mom to Buca to celebrate her 82nd birthday. We all had a great time. When we were brought to our table there was a big Happy Birthday sign on the table. The waitress and staff were great and very attentive the whole evening. We had a mixed green salad, Lasagna, Baked Zita and Chicken Carbonara, and the huge Brownie Sundae. The food was great and was served in a timely manner. Our drinks were constantly filled and we were asked a few different times if we were doing OK and if we needed anything. The owner/manager (?) saw to it that we were really taken care of and I really did appreciate that because I really wanted my mom to have a very special evening. I really recommend Buca for dinner and celebrating.

    We went to Buca to celebrate my birthday. We asked for a specific server, but didn't get him. Instead we were placed in a section with a server who seemed annoyed we were there. She lightened up after a while but had a large party and seemed bothered she was getting sat. My 6 year old daughter mentioned to our server a couple of times it was my birthday. She was excited when she saw 2 other table get the candles and sung to. So when my birthday was ignored she was upset by that lack attention. I don't need the singing, but my daughter did. We will go elsewhere for celebrations.

    Buca di Beppo is a wonderful place to visit. I enjoy going with my college aged daughter and with at least one other person. We order the smalls of something. If we were to order the small of a pasta dish and we only have two people in our party, then it is too much food. We usually use a coupon when we go and forgot to look for one before going. The prices are still great and corresponds to the portion sizes. The decorations on the wall are fascinating to look and sometimes gets a laugh out of someone. Italians are full of life and the restaurant does a good job at showing it. Touring the kitchen is a delight each time we visit. I don't know of any other restaurant that does this.

    I usually get good service however this was the first time i wasn't completely happy. I came with a party of 10 for my daughters graduation we drove 45 mins to get their because its my daughters favorite restaurant. Our waiter was really slow when it came to attending to us.We had to go find him and ask for bread.I asked for lemon to go with my salad twice and he never brought it, so i took my husbands lemon from his ice tea.When are salad arrived to the table we had to send it back because their was a hair in it (gross).We just weren't very happy with the experience when we got bread he didn't give us oil and vinegar so we had to wait for him to come back and it took him so long my party decided to eat the bread anyway.we got it later

    It is a loud family style italian(isk) restaurant. The portions are large, the food is tasty and the wait staff is friendly. It is a great place for us since we have a four year old and two - two year olds. Trying to eat healthier is a bit of a challenge since most of the meals are heavy meals but the salads can modified to meet the healthier diets.

    Wewe're at a party of 13, it cost us over $400 for dinner, and there was very little alcohol ordered. We thought that the large dishes would make it less expensive for a large party. The food was good and service even better. Even so, I would think twice about throwing another party there.

    Monster portions, very good food. If you like thin crust pizza then get it, you won't be disappointed. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner this isn't the place. It's laid back and noisy, which is how they intend it...a big family, big meal atmosphere.

I don't remember it being as pricey as it was this last time though. We went at an odd hour so the service wasn't that great, but we still enjoyed ourselves.

    Bread was warm and soft, and I love when they give you olive oil and vinegar to dip it in. We got the baked ziti in the large size, perfect for 4 hungry people, but it could have used more sauce as it was on the drier side. The pasta was perfectly al dente, but the tubes were smooth, without ridges. I'm used to ziti having ridges that helps the sauce cling to it instead of just sliding off. Service was great and attentive, and we even got a complimentary picture of our group!

When we politely mentioned to her our food was cold she got upset. It took quite some time for service once seated.

Our server would come by to ask how we were doing and before we could say anything she would walk away. I asked what recommendations she had for dishes that didn't have marinara sauce and she told me to read the menu.

    We went for Valentines Day; I'd never been. The server was good, but non impressive. It seemed she was "just doing her job". The food portions were sinful which is probably the reason for the ridiculous prices. This was NOT a 5 star restaurant, more like an upscale Shakeys and the prices didn't match the food. What makes this a horrible review is the management. All of you walking around with your headphones on, talking into it loudly enough for the guest to hear (Table 39 looks like they may be getting ready to leave). That was us and we weren't, but after that, we did. Is it policy that the customers meal should be rushed so they can turn their tables quickly? Apparently so and that's why we'll never go back or recommend this to others.
