                        I don't recommend coming here for the food. Their spaghetti sauce is very bland and just taste like watery tomatoes. The food is served family style. So if you decide to eat here make sure you bring a group of people and make a reservation.

                        Coming from a lover of Italian food and cooking, I'd say this place wouldn't know italian food if it was dumped on their head!
                        When we ordered Penne pasta, the sauce should not have been called a sauce... it was canned tomatoes. No flavor, no sauce, just canned tomatoes anybody can buy at a grocery store.
                        And the pizza was ridiculous... it was obvious they were trying to save money. The bread was flat as and tasted like paper! It was made thin to be authentic, it was made thin to save money. There was a few globs of more canned tomato on it that was supposedly "sauce" and a few globs of mozeralla on top.
                        The prices are high, and only for the size, not for the quality because there is none.
                        And our waitress tried to fool us... she asked "would you like some garlic bread with your drinks?" implying that it's complimentary and not even telling us it was placed as an order to pay for, but then it was on our bill for $8.99!
                        If you want real italian food, DO NOT GO HERE! This place is only good for huge birthday parties if you want big portions, but if you want good italian food, forget it.

I wouldn't come here if I would be going out to eat with only one person. Definitely this is the type of place for big groups. It will satisfy big appetites, but personally I think the food lacks taste.

                        if youre hungry, buca di beppo is the place to go. its a great place for big groups or a date for just the two of you. its a family style restaurant where everything is shared by everyone. it tends to run a tad on the pricey side, but since a pizza and one other dish will serve 3 or 4, youre saving money overall.

                        PROS: a lot of food! great doggie bags

                        Buca Di Beppo does a great job making their food smell and look delicious. I have been there about 3 times and it was an enjoyable experience. The atmosphere is fun and lively. The only downfall is that it is loud, but if you can stand the loudness of talking and laughing then you will love it.

                        Buca Di Beppo has a nice atmosphere if you really feel like going out for Italian. The walls are clad with photos and knick knacks that make you remniscient for Old Italy even if you're not Italian! If it's your first time, they take you through the kitchen and you get to meet your chefs! The pasta dishes are huge because it's family style and the green beans soaked in a lemony olive oil are great! Try the ravioli with meat sauce. Mmmmm! Great service, friendly staff!

                        I ate here a couple of times, and was not impressed with the food. They serve large quantities of mediocre food. I am always amazed at how people seem to love this restaurant, since I have always been underimpressed. The restaurant smelled pretty badat least one time when I was there and I also felt sick after dinner. The waitstaff is helpful and friendly and the family- style is somewhat unique, but the food leaves a lot to be desired.
