We had the worst service experience and had to walk out. We arrived early for our reservation (only about 10 minutes or so) and were told to come back to the server closer to our actual time. Ok, there are better ways to say that, but fine. Our hostess then comes to us about 5 minutes after our reservation time to say that she would clean the tables and seat us soon. By the time she came back it was more than 20 minutes from when we arrived. The hostess was so cold and rude. No apologies or anything. And before coming out to us I could see her through the window talking to the cooks and laughing and actively turning away from us. The service was so bad and we were supposed to be having a birthday dinner for our group. We left and found a better place that was excellent and delicious (Dolce Osteria). I was so looking forward to eating here but I'll pass. I've never had such a rude experience.

Treated my mom for Mother's Day. I was disappointed that they only wanted to serve family style portions because no one wanted the same thing. Food was bland, but our waiter was AMAZING! I cannot remember his name but he had shoulder length hair and was attentive to our needs.

Waitress was horrified...smelled of weed. Took our drink order at 8:45, then lost/forgot to put it in. We weren't able to get drinks since the bat shuts down at 9. Manager did bring us drinks after we told him what happened. Food took 2 hours to come out, and we were the only ones at the restaurant by the time it arrived. Phenomenal food!! Waitress was unatenntive, sloppy, yelled across the room to other other takes while speaking with us and just plain inept. Like I said earlier, food was great, buy service was aweful and restaurant was a mess.

The food was terrible and cold. It was dirty and over-crowded for covid. The fresh bread was the only good thing I can say. The alfredo had sugar in it! The chicken parm was cold and mushy. This isn't anything like real italian food... its a disgusting version of fast food.

Liked that this restaurant requires MASKS to be worn which is VERY IMPORTANT TO ME. I also appreciate the limited seating . I will not eat in a restaurant that zI don’t feel safe sand will immediately walk out if I feel at risk of exposure. I love to eat out but will NOT compromise my safety to do so.

The main course was terrible and way overpriced. Service was good but the ambiance was pretty sketchy. I think the area around there has gone downhill so the clientele are following suit. The restroom was disgusting. A restroom says a lot about the attitude of the owner and it’s pretty apparent this one has given up.

We’ve eaten at Buca di Beppos in several cities and have had mixed experiences. This was our first time at this location and we had an excellent experience! Our server was pleasant and attentive. The food was very good. We started with the very tasty apple Gorgonzola salad. Then we shared a variety of dishes. One person in our group thought the eggplant parm was the best she’d ever had. The lemon chicken was good, as was the giant meatball we shared. The pastas were cooked perfectly, the manicotti was so good. It was a wonderful meal!
