Went there for lunch, got in a 12:05pm Never got food till 12:50pm. By this time, my lunch hour was just about finished. So, I had to take my food to go. Needless to say, this is NOT where you want to go if you need eat and get out in less than an hour. When I finally had a... More

Buca di Beppo is a chain that has found a happy home in the Kentlands. It is what you would expect from any trattoria in Italy. It is loud, the decor is in-your-face Italian and the food portions are huge and delicious. With the restaurant divided in to several different dining areas you can always find an intimate corner if... More

Have loved going to Bucca di Beppo but was surprised at some changes. Where is the delicious bread they used to serve? One reason for going there. Instead, garlic cheese bread was like toasted bread with gobs of cheese on top and not tasty. Chicken parmigiana and stuffed shells with cheese, spinach, and sausage were better than average, but the... More

This is a place for non foodies. Fun, casual , ok food in relatively large portion-- though these seem to be shrinking from visit to visit. Lots of little eating areas give it a sense of intimacy.

Buca di Beppo has been one of my favorite restaurants. I go there for many special occasions and also just to have a good dependable meal. Well tonight was the exception to the rule. To begin with, I requested a quiet table when I made my reservation on Open Table. I called ahead to ask if we could come early,... More

My wife and I had lunch on Tuesday 1/31 at Bucca. Their food is excellent as is their atmosphere of humor & nostalgia. Lunch time was easy access, not a line to contend with. There is ample parking, both regular and HC. Service was very good, the waiter friendly and accommodating, if not "rushed". I'm assuming that his co-worker couldn't... More

The waiter was solid - at least until the place got busy around 7. The decor is Friday's meets old Italy and a little dated. The food was hit and miss. We liked the Caesar salad to start. We had 2 types of pastas - one was alfredo which was way undercooked (I don't quite understand why that happens at... More

I don't think I've been to any local restaurant that has the level of service that Buca consistently demonstrates. We've been here quite a few times and on the rare occasion that something is wrong, they FIX it. I wish other dining venues would learn from them. The food is amazing. Large portions -- family style dining. Everything is meant... More
