The restaurant interior is super cool, with tons of old photos and wood paneled booths. A retro 70s feel.

That was the high point.

Bruschetta was pretty good, a little light on mozz and heavy on tomato but pretty good. I would also say overall, the way they do their menu, with family style meals, is different and makes for a very reasonable / affordable price point for a family.

We were very excited to get carbonara as it’s one of our faves. Unfortunately, it came without the peas, which really balance it out. When I asked to see if we could get the peas, we were told the food truck didn’t have the peas in the day’s delivery, but the kitchen offered a substitute of .... capers. Because they said capers are similar. Capers are not similar to peas except both happen to be green and pea-shaped.

We then ordered tiramisu for dessert. And waited. And waited. And waited. Our server came out to tell us that the “tiramisu isn’t ready yet from this morning” and asked if we wanted to order a different dessert. We declined, and asked for the check, and she said she just needed a minute to get the tiramisu taken off the check.

We waited another 10 minutes and she came back and plopped a plate down on the table with the check (still including the tiramisu) and the enticing announcement that “we found a slice in the back!” I have no idea what was on the plate, but it was not tiramisu. It looked like layers of sponge cake with cream filling, with chunks of chocolate on top. My husband loves tiramisu and risked tasting it. The look of horror on his face as he spit the bite out into his napkin assured me I didn’t want to take the same risk.

We will not be returning.

Unfortunately, our server had difficulty keeping up and was a bit confused. The manager was willing to make up for the server’s shortcomings and was very apologetic. This may have been an off night or it may be another effect of the pandemic, but this place is not what it used to be. Very sad.

My wife and I had booked reservations for February 13th at 7:30 when we arrived, we were seated within 5 minutes. Wewereseatwd in one of the rooms, When we ordered our food the waitress brought our drinks then the salad and garlic bread which was great. After about a half hour of the waitress came over and said that our heart shaped lasagna would be right up. Another 15 minutes goes by she comes to our table and says I’m sorry someone else grabbed your lasagna they’re making another one will give you a discount off your bill. I said OK no problem. So about an hour later outcomes that lasagna cold in the middle and then taste very greats.
When it came time to check out the waitress said they can’t discount the bill but they would be glad to make another entrée for us to go. We are from out of town and staying in town for the weekend. I wasn’t too pleased hearing that I was going to get a discount then turn around and say now we can’t do that for you when she brought it up not us.

The waitress was very nice. The food was average at best. The restaurant was extremely dirty. It smelled bad too. That is not what we wanted to see, especially with a pandemic going on. The bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in awhile. The carpets weren't vacuumed in awhile. It turned my stomach and ruined the experience for me.

Our rigatoni was not very hot, had a very few pieces of sausage and very little sauce. Not worth the $36 we paid for it. Also our server was wearing her mask almost on her chin and hugging other customers. Made us feel uncomfortable. Ate quickly and left.

The food was good as usual. The service was a bit slow. Luckily we had plenty of time before our show. The room was very noisy and made it hard to have a conversation. I’m not sure if or when we will come back. There are plenty of Italian restaurants to choose from that allow each person to have something they would like rather than trying to buy a family portion of food.

we had a party of 11 for 3:15 pm on a Saturday. They sat us at different tables which was ridiculous.. we were celebrating my twins 23rd birthday and they couldn't even sit together. But.. they brought in another group of kids and stuck them all together in the same room as us and pushed their tables together. they put us at round tables and them at long tables. Very ignorant .. Their server was a woman and someone asked her a question in my group and she looked at us like we had a problem and muttered something. I would consider looking into this we were there on Saturday, January 25th at 3:15.. I don't think i would recommend coming back there.. Food was good, little dry for the Alfredo and for the baked ziti. Had a hard time getting refills on drinks. I had water w/lemon so did my 73 year old mother and it was musty. We were there last year and it was good.. not so much this year.. We brought my daughters mother in law and father in law to be there and we didn't get to sit with them and they were not impressed with the seating nor the food or service. thank you but i don't know if i would come back there again...

Was there on NYE. We made reservation thru Open Table and was seated immediately. To cut to the chase, our server was great, the appetizer and dessert was really good but our entrees were sub par. The pizza was cold, the eggplant parm was ok but the fettuccine Alfredo was the worst I have ever had. I figure it was recycled from the previous day or from a previous order as it was so dry the all the noodles were stuck together in one clump. Also, the salad was pretty old as the lettuce and diced tomatoes were wilted and mushy. The house dressing was pretty flavorless as well. Our bill cam to $187 and we did tip our waitress +20% as she was great but the food was not very good. I will prob not eat there again as there are other Italian restaurants by me that I won’t have to pay parking. But then again if I was blown away by the food, I would likely return

As usual, Buca di Beppo was a very good option for our gathering but what made my brother's birthday celebration outstanding was the affable, efficient service that we received from our amazing waitress. We were all in awe of her physical - and psychological! - fortitude in handling our lively, bilingual crew of 13 at the "pope" room. Please give her an extra generous holiday bonus!
