Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant
The decor is very interesting and unique. There are different themed rooms, and similar to walking through a museum. We stopped after a soccer game on a Sunday and it was very busy, but not too long of a wait (15 min). Definitely a go-to place for celebrations...lots of b-days, anniversaries all around with the staff making each special. Food is family style...with enough to feed 3 or more people. It seems pricey, but if you consider the portions and share dishes it is reasonable. If everyone gets a difference dish, then $20 for a pasta is going to add up, but should have lots to take home too. Chicken Alfredo was creamy and tasty, Chicken Marsala was also tasty, but did not come with any pasta, so couldn't enjoy the Marsala sauce as much as I wanted to. A piece of chicken did not seem like a meal, so that dish did not seem like a good value.
The food was surprisingly good, honestly delicious. This was my first visit and it is true family style where you order large platters to share. The service was exetremely nice. The decor is very quirky, which makes for fun conversation starters. The only downside was the smell from the entryway through the bar area. It reeked of old grease, like maybe they spilled a vat of fry grease and never got it all out of the carpet. I was extremely grateful that we were seated further back in the restaurant where I couldn't smell it. I am admittedly sensitive to smell, so maybe it's just me. But it was strong enough that I won't go back unless I learn that they have replaced the old carpet or removed the smell.
Unique decor. Interesting ambience. Good service. Good variety of food. Good taste, yet not overwhelmed. Good for casual dining. Felt like a restaurant in maze. Moderately priced food. No waiting time . We were seated immediate. Food was served quick and felt fresh.
Today was our first visit in a couple of years. My wife really enjoyed her meal. I had Pizza and it was good also. The only thing is if you are used to American Style Pizza . There is a big difference in real Italian style pizza. But over all we really enjoyed our visit and the food also. We plan on going back soon.
It was my first time eating here for my anniversary and I must say the food portions are beyond enough! The prices are a little high so expect to spend some money but the amount of food you get makes it worth it! The staff made the experience fun, and it felt like a loud Italian family home! Theres also a lot of pictures on the wall for you to enjoy. We had the joy of sitting at the special table in the kitchen, so we were able to see the magic up close! Definitely will recommended and the next time Im in town Ill be back.
