Good for a chain restaurant

I enjoy Buca di Beppo. It's my favorite chain restaurant to go for Italian food, especially if I have a large group joining me. My husband and I go on our own and get the smaller portions of chicken parm and we absolutely love their fried mozzarella. It is nice to go to a mom and pop Italian restaurant if you want the intimate atmosphere but I like coming here with a fun group. The service has been adequate for such a large and busy restaurant.

very dissappointed

Where to start....My family and I came to celebrate my birthday at buca di peppos for dinner. After reading the reviews, I was very eager to try this "" cozy "" Italian restaurant. What a disappointment. The service was absolutely horrible. Our server probably said 5 words to us the whole night. Our server kept forgetting to bring our beverage order to us (2 sodas) and finally managed to bring them about 10 minutes after our appetizers arrived. Once the main entrees arrived our server immediately dropped the bill off which definitely left the impression she wasn't there to give us further service. As for the food, it was just okay .....large portions but not very special in taste. Hopefully my experience was a fluke but I won't be coming back.

Don't listen to the first 2 reviewers, This place ROCKS! the food is to die for. Especially the veal and the eggplant parmesan!!! delicious. I took 2 friends that seemed unimpressed and ordered 1 plate of eggplant parmesan and they ended up fighting over it. So we ordered another plate. Great for families and the wait is worth it. High Regards

Massive Portions

Not for the faint of heart. Bring friends and share the huge family-style servings for a bargain price.

Don't Go Here!

My friend and I had a bad time at this restaurant. We had made reservations in advance for 8pm... We got there around 7:50, and waited... waited some more, and some more, and finally got seated at 8:45. What is the point of making reservations if they don't count for anything??? Once seated, we were less than impressed with the ambiance. If you intend on being able to hear what your friends have to say, skip this place. It was extremely loud, with people constantly banging their silverware on their glasses, which at times was so loud I had to put my fingers in my ears. The food itself was ok, but just ok and definitely not worth the unpleasant experience of this place!! Go somewhere else!

So-so food

I know everyone love's the chckered table cloths and family-style service, but i'm sorry, the food here is just not good. With such great italian places downtown and little italy, i don't get why this place is so packed night after night. i've tried the food inthe restaurant and with takeout, and the ravioli's are rubbery and overcooked, and the sauce is just not even close to authentic. I wish i loved it here, but i just don't.

Fun Food

Buca Di Beppo is a favorite for the whole family. Not only can you get food that the kids will eat but the adults can enjoy themselves too. The setting takes one to another time and place. It just screams of fun and laughter. If you can book far enough in advance, I recommend sitting in the kitchen booth. The servers bring by each dish that goes out for viewing. Their prices are reasonable and their portions are huge.
