Another great meal at a Buca di Beppo; consistently a worthwhile experience. The hearty portions, great service, good drinks, fun atmosphere, and kitschy Italian American stereotype charm makes dining at any of their restaurants worth it.

This little restaurant is sort of tucked into a corner, and I suppose if you have a window seat (there aren't many) you might have a view of the lake. The overall ambience is...well, is "Italian restaurant" an ambience? There's music playing in the background, people are talking, lighting is dimmed, lots of pictures and kitsch on the walls. I...

We were staying the weekend and decided to get some food here per a recommendation. Wasn't disappointed. The food we ordered was delicious and tasty, it had flavor, we were also pleasantly surprised at their Fruta de mari (pretty sure I didn't spell that right) but it's their seafood pasta and it came with muscles, shrimp, baby clams and squid...

Every Buca which we have ever been to serves good food-this one is not an exception. We had Chicken Marsala and Garlic Mashed Potatoes. Service was good, with even the manager asking how things went.

Great family style Italian food, and an outstanding waiter. He was knowledgeable and helpful. The salad was good as was the lasagna.

First off this place only serves family style which means every order is supposed to feed multiple people. The problem is most of the stuff that says it will feed 2-3 people is really just a over expensive normal plate of food. To make it worse, as far as Italian goes it's really not good, just tastes like pasta with... More

We had a good diner but the service was not the best. We were told we needed reservation even though the place was empty. We sat at the and left about one hour later. The tables were still empty. The food was not bad. We had pizza and pasta. The prices were reasonable.

Had heard a lot about this place, So thought this would be great place to have my 50th dinner Birthday. Fun atmosphere, lots of cool photographs all over. Entrees are served family size style either small or large. Great way to try different dishes and split with your friends and family. Was pretty happy with the food, a popular place... More
