Great food and family! Gotta bring a big party and big appetite!
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant. – In Short
Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
avoid this one – Buca is over priced for the quality and quantity. Honestly go to Magianos.
the garlic bread was good.
we had to ask for refills on our drinks. the servers were in too much of a hurry to wrapp our food to go.
when they did, they blended the dishes and should not have. they placed some garlic bread ontop of the pasta in the box making the bread soggy. also the take home boxes leaked in the bags. what a mess!
they also dont make angel hair pasta or pasta olio and we have never been refused either dishes in other places. family style is great but what we ordered was not family style portions. they need to redefine their menu.
a member of my party was celebrating a birthday and we told the staff, all they did was bring out a candle and sang. offered no desert, icecream or cake. what are candles? that was a waste.
the decor was a bit too much, we will not be returning.
this was a waste of my time and money
fun for out of town guests but not regular dining – This loud, crowded restaurant has the ambiance down and the food is as good as maggianos but service is not the best and it is so loud you have to yell. I like family style dining but if you don't this is not the place for you. It is not exactly authentic Italian food but it is ok for casual dinner once in a while. You go here for the atmosphere, not the food.
Find someplace else! – The food is o.k., the drinks overpriced, the staff a little over bearing. It's a typical chain restaurant. If you want authenic Italian food, try a place in your neighborhood!
Bring some mints. . . – If you like garlic you'll love Buca de Beppo!
Went with a group of 6. The family style dishes were huge and delicious.
Every inch of each themed room is covered with irreverent photos and other fun stuff.
The staff was friendly. I recommend Buca for dining with a group.
Try the garlic bread. . .best I've ever had.
