My husband and I stopped for a late lunch but missed the lunch menu as we arrived a few minutes after 3. Previously I have been there for lunch and could order an individual serving rather than family style. So good to know for the future. It was a quiet time which was nice for conversing but our waitress was... More

They do a good job with your standard Italian fare along with large groups and families will enjoy the atmosphere. If you are looking for authentic and fresh from scratch then keep looking for other options. This is a chain but they do a great job. Our meal was very good. We had Chicken Saltimbocca and Chopped Antipasti Salad. both... More

We ate here for a family get together. The restaurant is large and feels a bit busy and hectic inside, even before the supper rush begins. The food is OK but nothing exciting. Everything is served in large portions to share. Parking is poor at this location.

Bucas is always a fun place to eat. I love to look at all the pictures on the walls and different decorations. Many people eat there for their birthdays and the staff sing to them. We had a good Caesar salad, and we always enjoy the spaghetti and meatballs. We also ordered pizza this time and it was wonderful. The... More

I like other Italian places better when I'm on my own or with another person or two, but for large groups, Buca is the best!

This was our first time at Buca di Beppo. It is off the main road and you won't see it unless you are looking for it. Very busy, of course. It was Thanksgiving.

We got tables together just as requested. Our waitress was friendly and very helpful in ordering for a group of both adults and kids with different tastes. Service was timely as well as check out. The atmosphere was fun and contagious.
