I love this place. First let me say that this is family style. So if prices look steep it's because one plate will serve 2-3 people. The interior is filled with pics of old actors and lots of Italian art. I never had a bad time or a bad meal. I will definitely be back.

Don't go here unless you are really hungry. The food is incredibly delicious, served in bowls big enough to pass. Each bowl serves 3-4 and that's the small size! I love the décor of this place, the music, and the food. Don't miss!!! Take a group....

Ok the food is good I have to say that. It is best enjoyed by a group of 5 or more as it is family style serving. Out last visit was for a birthday they offer no birthday cake with a candle like everyone else does. Yes cheesy but little things count. Ok being picky here; Price point for this... More

If you enjoy good Italian homestyle food, served on platters family style, then this is the place to go. This is a great family or large group destination, the service is good and so is the food. In addition, the quirky decor makes for great conversation!

We had multiple birthdays and an anniversary to celebrate for a total of 16 people. My wife visited the place in advance and they had a perfect sized room with a large round table that held 17 people. So, we reserved it. On the day of the event, they welcomed us warmly and because of the size of the party,... More

We have eaten at Buca di Beppo restaurants before in St. Paul and Des Moines (the latter is now closed). So we were looking forward to a celebratory family dinner at Buca in the Allentown area. We were not disappointed with the food, service, and moderate prices. The salads are exceptional, saltimboca and chicken parmigiana very good, and a tiramisu... More

Went there once with a date and will never go back. Place was noisy with a bunch of drunken ladies in the next booth. My dates drink came back with a strange substance floating on it. We got up and left while the manager offered to pay for the meal/drink. Told him frankly, "to stick it". Never went or will... More

Had dinner with friends. Two orders was enough for three people and a lot to carry home. The appetizer platter (calamari, mozz sticks, and mushroom caps) was decent. The salad was plentiful, and the two dishes (both chicken) were yummy. Garlic cheese bread sticks were VERY garlicky, and that's a good thing. And the tiramisu was fabulous. Service was a... More
