This has been a great place for our holiday meals and this Easter was no exception - others do the cooking and clean-up, and we get a great meal. The service staff are great, friendly and attentive. Our reservations were for 2:00pm and our wait was very short before being seated. They were very busy inside with both very large... More

Food was excellent. Noodles and shrimp cook just right, not under cooked or overcooked. Sauce was mild yet flavorful. Service was great.

We took my friend to Buck di Beppo for a lunch birthday celebration and the only thing to celebrate was finally getting the check so we could leave. We had a 12:30 reservation and exited at 2:10 with the cake frozen in a box the food was cold except the eggplant parm my friend ordered. The place wasn't that busy... More

We went to Buca di Beppo for lunch. It turned out to be a super special luncheon. Melody was our Server and she was excellent. A large party came in after us and sat in the room right next to us. Melody managed to serve them but always kept coming back to make sure we had everything we needed. I... More

Good food, good service.. Please remember that the portions served here is big so if you are just the two then you might want to order one dish and share... Unless of course you want to take some home for next day lunch/dinner...

Not what I expected. Wait staff was so-so for Valentine's day. Didn't like walking through the kitchen to get to the table. Meatball size was impressive, however the sauce was nothing to brag about. 1st & last time going there.

We have always enjoyed going to Buca for a special occasion meal. For this meal we made reservations about 30 days in advance. We arrived about ten minutes early and were seated on time, then place our order and received the bread/salad appetizer. Then everything went down hill. After about an hour had passed since receiving the salad, we still... More

My family and I ate here last month to celebrate. We were not disappointed. We enjoyed the apple gorgonzola salad as well as the other dishes. The waitstaff proved friendly and helpful when deciding what to order. We will dine here again when in the mood to celebrate!
