This restaurant's food quality has really gone down hill. We ordered, Fried Mozzarella, Garlic Bread and di Beppo 1893 Salad. The Fried Mozzarella was over cooked and the Garlic Bread was dry and hard. For our main course we ordered the Baked Lasagna, Ravioli al Pomodoro, Fettuccine Alfredo, Penne Arrabbiata. The Baked Lasagna came to the table dark brown with black edges. Needless to say it was burned and dried out. The cook left it in the oven way too long. I sent it back and when the new one arrived it was better, but it was also dried out and close to being burned. The Penne Arrabbiata came out with the Italian sausage extremely over cooked. They were hard and dried out. The Ravioli al Pomodoro was bland and cold. We all had the Cheese Cake for dessert. It seamed to be dry tasting. All in all I think the food might have been freezer burned. Out of four people three of us felt ill afterwards. One was violently ill and two extremely nauseous. We used to love this place, but now we wouldn't go back there for any reason. The restaurant wasn't all that busy. Now I see why! The waitress should have never served that first Lasagna. You could see that it was burned. Over all I give this place a Negative 3 Stars!! SAVE YOUR MONEY AND GO ELSEWHERE !!

I recently went here for the first time, it was interesting. They walked us through the kitchen before seating us, not sure what I think of that. The resturant had an old house or antique store smell. A little disgusting, but I would have to say the staff made it a very positive experience. The dishes are generally for 2 or more, or 3 or more but there are some that you can order for just one person. I like the family style menu, however, it doesn't work with any group of people. The salads are amazing and the lasanga wasn't as good as olive garden. Overall, good not great food, nice staff, and good atmosphere.

Hooked on their Veal Parmesean and Chicken Marsala. You can even do half orders if you have a party of two. I like the 'to go"" option . . . call in order, park in pick up parking space and they bring your order out to you. Not the most quiet/romantic place to dine (family atmosphere/pretty loud with screaming kids).

This is just like Olive Garden or Macaroni Grill. Part of what makes Italian food great is the family component and the love of the chef in the cooking. How can this place offer any of that? I recommend this only if you want to stuff as much pasta down your throat and not taste any of it. The portions are huge, but the quality is lacking. Not a good Italian restaurant by any stretch.

We had agroup of 14. We can be a little loud and we didn't have to worry about it here. We had one vegatarian and being family style servings we had alot of questions, how many appetizers how many entrees how many differant entrees. Well our sever was awsome he did such a great job on how much we should order we hardly had any leftovers, which i hate. Food was good, my picky 8 year old had calamari for the first time and loved it

I rarely go to dinner with large groups, but when I find myself in a position to select a place for a table of 5+, this is what I suggest. The menus on the walls are a nice touch once you get used to crank-your-neck ordering, and the chicken with garlic mashed potatoes is worth taking home and serving at your table. Two of my nieces work in Buca's out of state, and everything I hear about the kitchen and their operations matches the positive dining experiences I have had the restaurants in several states now.
