The is not the first time we have visited Buca di Beppo. When we first visited a few years ago we were unimpressed with this seemingly very popular restaurant. We decided to give it another try. On this trip, we didn't enjoy Buca di Beppo any better than before. The last time we were there it was deliberately very loud (servers yelling to get the patrons laughing and yelling back, etc.), and people were running in and out of the back door, near our table, for a smoke.
Basically much of the food tastes the same to us, using the same chunky tomato sauce. Buca di Beppo seems to pride itself on thick breading on many of the items, pretty much obscuring the taste of whatever it is covering. The Chicken Parmigiana was dry. The Veal Marsala was the best (not breaded!) but was too sweet, and the Spaghetti with Meat Sauce included very little meat.

One nice improvement they've made since our first visit is that now they have both small and large entrees. For people who aren't that keen on family style, meaning sharing your food with others, you can order a smaller portion for yourself. That way two of you really don't have to agree on which entree to have. Some of the small entrees may be large enough to share, depending on what else you order. Small salads are definitely enough for three or four people. Your server will help you out with those decisions.

As of this writing, there are four locations of Buca di Beppo in the Valley: Glendale, Scottsdale, Chandler, and Mesa.

This is the ONLY chain restaurant that Iwould jump out of my seat to recommend other than Capital Grille or Smith & Wollensky's for steaks. This is the greatest restaurant for Italian that I have ever had and I have had great Italian food

If everything else is closed and you don't want to cook, hey, it's edible. But if you were raised on REAL Italian cooking, you are not going to be fooled. I agree with the "too large" portions. Why? Charge less and serve a normal portion.

The food is mediocre with quantity as justification for the price. After spending many years dining on The Hill in St. Louis, I can definitely tell you this is not Italian food (unless you like yours out of a can). Try Casa Mia in

Don't confuse large portions with quality. They are giving you ridiculous amounts of food and charging you for every bit of it.The meals are a step above chef boy-ardee. No real Italian would be caught dead in here.

The food portions are large, but extremely over priced. Pasta, Dinner Salads or Soups - all extra. Simply not worth the money.

I won't lie, the food is decent, but it is not REAL Italian. It is canned and boxed food that anyone can heat up. The ambience is fun, especially for large gatherings.

Buca is a great time for those of us who like to go out and have a good time. People who like to sit at a quiet table and eat with "proper manners" will be uncomfortable. Chicken Saltimboca is the best! Somehow, the chicken is SO juicy

Yeah the portions are big but now they have "BUca Per Due" or Buca for Two. Smaller portions for smaller parties. It's great! went to the Mesa store and loved it. Service was excellent, wine was tasty, oh and the aroma of fresh garlic
