I call the restaurant to ask to make reservation for dinner and the hostess told me they can't make it until 7:45pm. So I went on open table and there were room to book to have dinner, I would recommend you to book it on open table don't call the restaurant directorly to reserve your table.

The food was amazing I really enjoy the food so much it was delicious to a T. I really the pepperoni pizza it is so delicious

Hostess didn't walk us to a table, she haphazardly directed us to a corner.

The waitress was amazing! Made the experience worthwhile.

Food was good, a little overpriced for the quality. Overall still a good recommendation for the experience.

Restaurant was not very busy but is grungy inside. Service was good. Quantity of food was huge but quality was not good at all. Spaghetti and meatballs needed salt, garlic cheese bread too garlicky (surprisingly because we love garlic), and chicken marinera had lots of gristle and inedible in our opinion. Dinner for 4 was $150! Way too expensive for the quality we received.

We had a really good experience at dinner this past Sunday. Chuck took really good care of us, as did the floor manager; who despite accidentally dropping the tray of food, made sure that a replacement tray of food was delivered to us right away (less than 10 minutes). We all had a good laugh! The food was great tasting, as always.

We went on one of the first days after reopening during the covid pandemic, June 2020. Social distancing was done throughout the restaurant & parties were spaced out at tables far apart. Our waiter was both polite & attentive. The food was of course very big in portions & delicious, just as desired!

Enjoyed out recent visit to Buca di Beppo. Servings are large. We ordered for 3 people and took a lot home. Colossal sundae was wonderful but we left half of it. Only disappointment was that they did not have short ribs for the Short Rib Orecchiette so we had the dish made with shrimp.
