If you leave this place hungry, it is your own fault. Easily feed a family of 10 with two large entrees. Prices at first may seem high, but when you breakdown per person it is very reasonable.

Not near as good as the one in Charlotte, NC.

We booked the kitchen table as we were celebrating birthday and retirement and did get it. The kitchen table was empty when we walked in and was still empty when we walked out.

Service was much slower than normal (we were the only table for awhile) water, bread everything much slower than expected.

We ordered Ceaser Salad and she brought us “house” salad. We brought it to her attention and she said oh yeah someone in the kitchen said that the house salad looked good last night & I just put it in wrong. We kept it and ate it anyway and ate it but not what we ordered.

Entrees were okay my lemon chicken was dry, pasta had very little marinara on it. Husband’s pasta was very dry, even asking for more Alfredo sauce which took a long time to get

It was quite loud with people talking, and we had the luxury of sitting right underneath a speaker to add to the experience. Our server was relatively nice, but did seem to have a bit of an attitude. The food was good, as usual.

The food was not good at all. You could tell that the chicken used in the pasta dish was processed meat and not fresh. The spaghetti and meatballs were dry and you could tell the sauce had been sitting all day and microwaved upon serving. The greens for the Apple Gorgonzola salad was also not fresh as there was no “crisp” in the bite. The food was ordered and the spaghetti arrived at our table in 5-minutes so that goes to show you that the food is already prepared for every order. Very, very disappointing especially for the price.

We used to love this place. But the quality of food and the service has gone down hill in the last few years. Every time we needed something, we had to ask our waiter 3 times for it. And it would take nearly 30 mins to get a gluten free menu or a refill. Its ridiculous. My husband ordered the spaghetti and meatballs, he said it was dry, no flavor and tasted like it had been microwaved. I ordered the chicken limone. The flavor was ok but the chicken was rubbery like it had been frozen for a few months prior to cooking. Also children are suppose to eat free all summer if an adult entree is ordered with each child. We were still charged for 2 kids meals. My husband was so upset with the food and the service at that point that he did not want to wait another 30 mins for the waiter to come back by, so we paid it and left. Not the quality you would expect getting when paying $100-$150 for dinner. We won't be back there for a long time to come.

Always enjoy our meals at Buca di Beppo. Cannot imagine a meal without the anti-pasta salad.....my favorite. Enjoy hearing the music in the background and looking at all the pictures on the wall.

The service was awesome, food was good. Maybe a little overpriced for pasta. I ordered a tiramisu to go and had it for dessert later that night and it was horrible. Had two bites and tossed it in the trash, 12.00 loss.

It was good, especially for Father’s Day. We were in early enough that there wasn’t a rush. Only one main thing irked me which had more to do with the front of the house. We had put in reservations, yet the staff was squabbling about how to seat 5 of us within an earshot of us. Outside of a dirty plate that was sent back, there were no other issues.

Our hostess Alexis was the main problem. We made our reservation for 4 and when we showed up on time she was very frustrated and started to complain out loud to her other hostesses about how they did not have enough tables and servers for us. She was very rude and not friendly at all- we waited 15 minutes before we got a table and the restaurant was not busy at all. The good news is our server was very friendly and did a great job. The food as always was ok (we were not expecting a 5 star restaurant).
