I was recommended to try the eggplant parmesan and it was very very good. The menu is family style ... servings are for 2-3 or 4-5. On our visit, the waiter was very attentive. The decor is different, and not the most comfortable.

I was so excited to spend a Sunday and family friends. We went to the movies and then to Bucca for dinner. I was so glad at how easy it was to make reservations online. Our family friends were just thrilled to go to Bucca (their favorite restaurant). We were seated in the bar area. The bartender was our server.... More

This is a family style restaurant which means no individual orders. We ate the lasangne and it was delicious! Wow! The brocolli was cooled to perfection, but it was sprinkled with red pepper which gave it a bite we weren't expecting and didn't enjoy. I would definitely return with a large group. The decor is very busy, but interesting with... More

If you're looking for something different with a group of people who all want the same thing this might be your place. We were there this weekend for a large family gathering. It was fun and the food was very good. We ordered two kinds of salads (both great), Spaghetti with meatballs (these were HUGE) and chicken parm. The food... More

My first visit to this restaurant will be my last. The "family" sized entrees are fine if your family all want the same thing. The chicken marsala tasted like maple syrup. We had to ask twice for bread...three times for butter...and twice for the dessert menu.

I think the best thing here is the salad with fruit and nuts. We have been here several times. The food isn't bad, just now fabulous. The portion sizes generally prevent one from trying multiple items. We frequent Italian places. This one is not on our radar at all.

Absolutely the best Italian Food I have ever ate. Love the atmosphere and the employees are so nice and their service is excellent. If you ever get a chance to eat in the Kitchen - it is a must do because you are tucked into a large round booth that can hold about 8 people and you have full view... More

Buca di Beppo is known as being great for groups, with each dish made to feed three to five people. It takes a consensus to order. We enjoyed fairly standard Italian fare, ranging from baked ziti to linguine frutti di mare. We also enjoyed salad and delicious bread. All was tasty and good quality, including the cannoli and tiramisu for... More

Disappointed again.. went there for dinner with our extended family and the Penne with Vodka Sauce was so spicy this time no one could eat it and our chicken dish was overcooked, so they compensated with a tray of pasta to go.. which we later discovered to be dry, with no sauce at all. Emails from management tell me they'll... More
