Great place! Huge portions! Loved the atmosphere! My new favorite restaurant hands down!! Call an hour or more ahead though.

Sonya McNeil

Excellent service from Shirley! We had a large group and she handled us all with grace. Food was delicious and came out quick. Great experience and will most definitely be back again!

Robby Hollington

Absolutely one of the best Italian restaurants I have eaten. The wife and I stopped in by chance on our vacation. After eating I changed our vacation plans so we could stop and eat there again. The only thing better than the food was the staff. Thank you Michael Hungerford for making out experience amazing.

Jessica ROBY

Shirley made my birthday super fun! We always love bucca!

Shirley was our waitress and provided EXCELLENT service! The food was extremely tasty and arrived piping hot....thank you Shirley for a wonderful evening!

Bryan McFarland

Had a great time with my family and our waitress Star was great.

Malice Mae

Our server was very nice. However I wish they would have told us the spaghetti isn't half off on Monday if you use the birthday discount causing us to spend 30 dollars more then we should have. The ice cream was also freezer burnt in the birthday sundae so overall kinda depressing. .

Sawyer Dibble

Shirley was very energetic, sweet and talkative! Constant and quick service. Great experience!!

Scott Burrell

It is always smart to make a reservation. Still, at a busy lunch time the wait was only 30 minutes and definitely worth it. Great food and plenty of it. If you leave this place hungry, you have no one to blame but yourself.

Lauren Kempf

Shirley was AMAZING! Best service in town! We will definitely be back because her!

Lauren Phillips

Taylor Johnson

One of my favorite places! Great service and great food. Always leave either really full and satisfied or with plenty to take home. Garlic bread was great and I love their meatballs!

Andi Dahmer

An incredible restaurant, great food, and the best hospitality! Shirley and Nicole are always so personable and kind. We eat here every time we're in Louisville.

chris green

Food was very good. My children ate more calamari than my wife and I did. Portions are huge (even the small sizes.) The server we had, Jeff, did an amazing job. He was helpful, attentive, and overall really nice. Will definitely be back

Perry Santiago

Good food. Awesome portions. A little pricey but worth it.

Capt Caveman

Came for our anniversary, didn't realize it was prom night. Thankfully we had reservations. Food was expensive but large portioned, and tasted great.

Sarah Stillwell

Thomas was so kind. He brought us all we needed & more. Our drinks were never empty, & he was very helpful. What a wonderful dining experience! The atmosphere is to die for

Kelly Bowles

Went to the Louisville location for yet another round of delicious food. Our server Shirley was absolutely wonderful! :)

Michael Owsley

Great, great service from Shirley!! Thank you for a great 16th Birthday Celebration for my daughter Bella!!

Andrea Morris

We love dining at Buca Louisville. The service here is always excellent. Tonight we had Shirley, and in short she is a phenomenal server. Our cups were never empty, she anticipated our needs bringing us additional items and offering things seconds before we were about to ask for them. The meal was exceptional. Our food was served quickly and everything was delicious. The brussel sprouts in particular were delicious. The staff was friendly and gracious welcoming us as we came in. The manager, Suzannah, came and checked to make sure everything was up to our liking. To make this even better this was a celebration for my mother and she could not have been happier. We will definitely return.

John Lancaster

My family and I ate there on Saturday night. We had a wonderful time , our waiter was Alan he was very friendly and knowledgeable and very professional . Our food was amazing as always. However we noticed that Alans larger table on the other side of us was very loud and was being very rude. We overheard them being rude to Alan and as Alan walked away we heard one of the ladies say " we about to get everything for free" and laugh about it. This honestly made us uncomfortable and I apologized to Alan later that he had to deal with people like that. It's very sad that restaurant workers have to deal with that kind of thing . We heard them say they were going to write a review so I decided I would also . People shouldn't be able to slander others just to get free food .

Patricia Troutman

Absolutely love the authenticity of the Italian food. Always great!

Brittany J

Shirley was our waiter and she was awesome. We had a large group and was celebrating a 60th birthday. She was very patient and accommodated all of our needs. She was friendly from start to finish.

Jill Walters

Patrick did amazing! First time here will definitely come again!

Selina Bass

It had been over 10 years since my husband and I had been to Buca di Beppo. The atmosphere was very different from what I remembered it. We were there for my husband's best friend's birthday. His wife and grown children were there also. Our reservation was at 6:00 p.m and we didn't leave until 7:45 p.m. Nothing negative had kept us there, it was that we were really enjoying ourselves. The service was awesome, the food was plentiful and delicious and the atmosphere was cheerful. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time! I can't believe we hadn't been there for over 10 years. Our table was sometimes too loud, mostly with jokes and laughter. But so were the other tables around us. This is a great place to have a large get together. Oh... The drinks were delicious too!


Kat- I think her real name is Katherine did an amazing job tonight. She took great care of us. We really enjoyed having her as our waitress.

Emma Kennedy

We had a delicious dinner and excellent service!! Shirley was our wonder server. She was amazing! Thank you for everything. We will be back .

DM Blitzkrieg

Celebrated a graduation with 13 of us. Shirley was awesome! Very attentive to all of us and made sure that drinks stayed filled and kept the food coming. Great experience all the way around. Thanks Shirley, see you again soon.

Rhonda Wright

Shirley gave us great service. Our food was great.

Jay Smith

We had a great time and the service was great. Shirley did a splendid job. Highly Recommend

Reagan Roy

Solid food, if you're gonna go, know that the restaurant is mesnt to go with people. Most portions are for 3-5 people. Besides that service was great, facilities were great. I would go back with a group.

Jack Shea

We celebrated an early Mother’s Day tonight and had an awesome server named Shirley! She was attentive and helpful and smiled the whole evening! Thank you Shirley for excellent service and your great attitude!!

Denise Cockerel

The perfect place to celerbrate my daughter receiving her BSN. Our server was spot on! And as always the food was fabulous!


Make sure you're hungry or bring enough people with you because they serve family style. A small serving is for 3 people. Food tastes delicious. Fun atmosphere. Friendly servers with good service. Loved it.

Joshua Blunk

Shirley was our waitress. She did an amazing job. The service was excellent and the food was outstanding.

Jennifer Bell

Thank you Shirley for being so friendly and helpful! I have worked in the service industry and have high expectations!!! She was great!!!

Donna Burkhart

Food is always excellent! Today we got the spaghetti with meatballs for the first time. Their marinara sauce has such great flavor. We bought a jar to take home. The meatballs are delicious and enormous, 1/2 lb each. Our server Chelsea was attentive and prompt. Thank you for a great experience!

Zach Howland

Grwt service, friendly staff, awesome food! We went for half price meatball night and they were some of the best meatballs I've ever had! And my birthday dessert was awesome!


I love this restaurant, go there often. Not only is it great food but the proportions are big enough to share or have another great tasting meal later on. Nice employees, gets your food out fast and make sure everybody has a full drink. Will go again

Lauren Brown

Just had lunch with the family! The service, food, and atmosphere was lovely! Shirley was a fabulous waitress! It is super kid friendly too! Would definitely recommend!

Carla loomis-allen

I liked it because the service was great... just didn't like that you couldn't get individual portions...2 of us went and I have dietary restrictions that make it hard for me to eat was others like, so we had to get enough for 6 to be able to feed 2. The colossal brownie was amazing though.

Amber Faraji

Shirley is an amazing server! She helped me for my bridal shower and for my graduate dinner. Each time she is so friendly and gives amazing service! The food was great!

Conni Strange

Thank you for excellent service, Shirley! The food was delicious, the kitchen table was a fun experience and Shirley made my dad's birthday special.

Charles Kaiser

the friends and family had a great time. try the saltimbuca and one of their drinks. Meatballs are huge! We will be back.

Jo Marshall

I loved your food, pictures, etc. It was amazing. The best part was our waitress, Shirley. What a treat. First time here and will return, but only with Shirley. Lol

Patrick & Lisa Hawkins

We ate at Buca di Peppo in celebration of our 8th anniversary. My husband had Shrimp Florentine and I had Spaghetti & Meatballs. Even tho we knew one entree was more than enough for the 2 of us, we ordered separate entrees so we would have enough for my husband to take some for dinner & a snack! Patrick so enjoyed his Shrimp Florentine! The look on his face was sheer pleasure! The shrimp was fresh & done to perfection and the spinach perfectly tender. He said it was absolutely delicious and with each bite, his smile reflected that! My Spaghetti & Meatballs was just as awesome! Truly fresh marinara sauce and delicious crumbly, huge, tender & tasty meatballs! Our server, Shirley! Oh My!

Clyde Sales

Shirley was the absolute best server! Food was perfect, service was perfect. Loving the Buca Luxx Experience!

Cynthia Coles

First time at this restaurant and location. The meal was delicious and our server Patrick was AWESOME! He was attentive and hilarious! Just like one of the family. I will definitely eat here and at other Buca di beppos in the future. Only downside was that I lost my bracelet and am waiting to hear back from restaurant in case it is there.

Lauren Bolton

Shirley delivered amazing service especially for a party of 15! She double checked everyone had ordered and that everything was exactly as we wanted. Great service and great food!

Samuel Harris

We love Meatball Monday. Food is great, staff is also great. Staff always greets us with a smile. Manager is nice. Great place.

Heather Wilson

Amazing meal and even more amazing service. Shirley was amazing and took excellent care of our large party! Would recommend to anyone!!

Maggie Mesker

It was our first time ever visiting a Buca and we had a great time overall! The waitstaff was very upbeat and attentive, and the atmosphere was fun yet very chill and casual. We ordered the appetizer trio with calamari, fried mac and cheese and fried mozzarella and it tasted fantastic. The cheesy garlic bread had way too much garlic for our liking, though, and we weren't able to eat more than 1 piece each so that felt like a waste. We ordered the quattro al forno as our main course, and it was overall pretty good. We would definitely come back, but we would change our order for next time.

Keith Noble

Small plate feeds 3 people. Always have take home. Pictures all over the place. Excellent service. Plan on being there at least a hour.

Chris Wilkerson

Food was average. Service was good. It was even more economical than we expected with two of us leaving full with a $23 bill. We made reservations for 8:30 pm,and we only had to wait about five minutes to be seated. The staff was friendly, the food came quickly, and the restrooms were clean. All this combined with a fun authentic Italian atmosphere is the reason I easily gave it a 4 star...... No doubt I'll eat there again in the future.

Ramon Stanton

Make sure you have a nice size group, and a very healthy appetite. Portion sizes are very very generous here. But you won't be disappointed, this was our first time, going here. We loved everything about the place, from the Homey decor, to the very friendly, and funny stuff . Finally to the delicious home made Italian food. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Brittany Garcia

My family came here to celebrate our littles birthdays and we had an extraordinary time! The manager Suzannah was super helpful throughout the night and our waitress Shirley was very attentive and was the best server I have ever had! I would definitely recommend this place and will be going again! Oh, and the food was bomb.

Doris Longest

We had fabulous service from Sherley. I will definitely recommend you guys to friends

Emily Gosney

Shirley is the best!!! She makes me feel like I am eating at home. Definitely recommend her when you come in!

Jenny Crowe

I really like this place! I have eaten here several times. Always enjoy having leftovers also! The service is always good. The last few times we have had Shirley. She is awesome!! Love her!!

Barbara Assel

We celebrated a birthday today and Shirley took great care of us. She’s the BEST!

Dennis Ehringer

14 neighbors shared the Popes Table. The round table that accommodates 16 had a lazy Susan in the middle of the table making it easy to share food. The meal was very good and the server was very accommodating. We would recommend Buco for its service, food and ambiance.

Amy Wright

Shirley was our waitress. She did an excellent job of making sure we had everything we needed. The services was excellent and the food was amazing.

Jennifer Clark

My parents went to Buca for their anniversary/mom’s birthday and asked me to leave a review specifically for their waitress Shirley. They said she was the best waitress they’ve ever heard, and she made their entire meal experience fantastic and deserves recognition for her outstanding service and excellent attitude. Thank you, Shirley, for making my parents’ dining experience a great one! :-)

ARG favored

My husband and I went here for our 15th yr Wedding Anniversary august 2019 and food was amazing! Our server Kat was awesome and very nice! We will make return visit!

Libby Hoffman

The best service (Latisha) and impeccable food... the dessert was the best tiramisu I've ever eaten

Janelle Pritchett

Great atmosphere. Took a large group and everything was flawless. Worked with Sheila to arrange the group and she was great! Ordered from the banquet menu which allowed our visit to be very fast as no orders had to be taken or anything. Will certainly take a large group to this location again.

Karen Higdon

Just wanted to post a shout out to the manager and wait staff on Saturday 5/25, who went above and beyond to accommodate our request for a table change, so a friend with her special needs child could be more comfortable and stress free during dinner. They were respectful and non judgemental which was so awesome, and to top it off, our meal was delicious.

Wendy Melcher

3 stars because I've always loved this place! Last experience was terrible though! We ordered a huge pan of Penne San Remo, and we all just kind of picked through it. The best way I can describe it is if you bought it from the freezer section of the grocery and nuked it! Not exactly the worst ever, but not what you expect from Buca! Maybe it was just this dish, maybe it was just the cook having a bad day... I'll never order that dish again!

Brandon Sawyer

Tish was a great hostess! Helpful with menu items and great service!

Racheal Phipps

Shirley is the most amazing server I've had here! She has been very informative and helpful! The food is fabulous! I always enjoy time here but with a big party it met every expectation!

Debbie Simms

I have had great and not so great experiences here. There have been menu changes in the past few years that removed some of my favorites, so personally speaking this place went down on my list of choices. There are a number of good selections. Depending on the time it can be very crowded. Great for groups because the large portions allow you to try a variety.

Houston H

Great service at this place. Food was good. Huge portions and our server Shirley did a great job making us feel welcomed. Definitely ask for Shirley

Mindy Locke

Shirley was such a rockstar! Super friendly service and was on top of what we needed the entire time. Very refreshing to have such a positive and happy server.

jerry douglas

Jeff Jewell

Shirley was outstanding. Service prompt, food outstanding and I couldn’t ask for better service

Joseph Bricker

Shirley was an awesome server and very accommodating. Would ask for her again and again. Food was great as usual.

Aaron Alexander

Incredible food and wonderful service. Patrick was a pleasure to be around and fully in control of our large table. Thankful and grateful for the experience!

Meredith Bryant

Shirley was amazing! She gave us the best recommendations and was extraordinarily friendly. Such a big pretty smile too. Definitely hope she’s our server next time!

Roya Headley

Amazing! Shirley, our server, was absolutely phenomenal!! Some of the best customer service I’ve had! The food was just as great! Will be back!

Melanie Holbrook

Tonight we decided to get out of a rut of always going to the same places. We decide to try Buca di Beppo. Our server Sonia was awesome. She explained the HUGE portion sizes and was patience answering all of our questions about ingredients due to severe food allergies. Of course we didn't listen and ordered way too much food, and we had to top it off and try 2 desserts! My husband, daughter and I truly enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It was a pleasure to meet one of the partners Michael that came at the end to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We will definitely be going back.

Frankie Story

Good food. They place needs a good cleaning though. Very dusty.

Courtney Short

Dino (the GM) and Shirley (our bartender/ server) are ABSOLUTELY amazing!!!! Such rockstars and what everyone in this industry should strive to be.

Gregory Myers

Came in at 2PM for a late lunch with the family. Took five minutes and someone I assume was an employee yelling at someone to come up to seat us. Even than it took a manager passing by to seat us as nobody ever came even with the yelling. Next, we are seated and waited over ten minutes with nobody coming to get drinks or even acknowledge we are in the restaurant. Mind you several employees walked by to the managers office by the restrooms. Eventually my wife got fed up and asked who ended up being our waiter if he could tell someone we are there. Drinks come fairly quickly and we order. Almost 30 minutes later we get food. This was not a busy time of day. In fact there was only eight other customers in the restaurant close to the bar. We get the bill. Kids meals are still on it even there is a giant sign on the restaurant stating kids eat free all summer. I look up the promo on the web site which states one free kids meals with certain purchases which we qualified for. After asking the server about it he says the sign is misleading? I further inquired and showed him the promo from the Bucca di Beppo web site. He pauses and seems baffled. States this is not what their manager was told but you know how that goes. The only reason I am giving a star at all is because the food was good. The entire experience minus the food was an utter embarrassment to the restaurant.

Chevonne Hayslett

Shirley was amazing! So friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. Appetizers, food and desert were great!!!

Silky One

I order a Bianca pizza (deliciousness) on National Cheese Pizza Day online directly thru the Buca website. I was happy to choose delivery not realizing they offered that. Turns out my order was being delivered by DoorDash. Long, very comical story short, my food ended up going rogue for an hour and a half on the other end of town & when it was FINALLY delivered my pizza was missing a piece! I can’t make this stuff up. After work, I took the pizza to show them the ridiculousness hoping to get a refund & just call it a night. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a refund due to the order being handled by DoorDash (I’ll get my refund thru them), but the manager Michael apologized & gave me an entire meal TO-GO for my family to enjoy for dinner that night! It was an awful lunch experience thanks to DoorDash but Buca di Beppo did everything to make it right & made sure dinner was awesome! Thanks Manager Michael again & because of your professionalism & good-heartedness, Buca di Beppo was able to keep a loyal customer. Dinner was awesome!

Sara Blemker

I had so much assistance and help with on line ordering from Suzannah. She was so kind and patient. I appreciated all she did especially the wonderful cannolis. The baked ziti and garlic bread was the best ever. Thankyou for everything.

Gary Barmore

Had a great family style dinner with excellent service. Shout out to Shirley for a job well done.

Gemini Cumming

My family and I had reservations at 6pm, on Fri April 26, 2019. Food was wonderful. Except our waiter named Jeff was very unpleasant when we said what we wanted it seemed like to us he didn't really feel like taking our order. We said what we wanted he had to sit down and write it that's very understandable. He was just miserable don't take it out on ur customers be happy

Jonathan Burton

The only reason to come to Buca is Shirley! She is awesome! The food is pretty darn good and the Pope room could use a fountain but Shirley is perfect the way she is. Order for 7 it’s worth it!

Patty Melendez

Shirley was awesome! Very attentive and always has a smile! Good recommendations, thanks for everything!

Sharron Guelda

The food was Great but the service was very good. We were celebrating 3 birthdays. Had a very good time

Heather Watson

Shirley was our waitress and she is amazing. The food is great, and eating here was fun.

Maria Smith

Heather was one of the best! The family style food is really fun. The fried cheese is bomb.

Allie Ireland

Really great service. Food was okay, I wanted to try more but knew I couldn't eat more lol. It was all and all a good experience.

Greg Smith

Love this place! The atmosphere is relaxed, warm and very interesting. The food is fantastic every time we come. But I want to talk about our server, Shirley. She was so nice and helpful and she has a wonderful smile. She made our dinner experience much more enjoyable. Thanks Shirley, we look forward to seeing you on our next visit.

Sarah Tiernan

Our special and favorite place! My daughter and I had exceptional service and care from Shirley! We love Buca!!!

Penny Solomon

Had lunch today with the whole family. We were lucky enough to get shirley as our waitress. We could not have had anyone better. We knew the food was fabulous but it was made better by Shirley!

Adrian Manning

Shirley was our server both times that we visited Buca and each time she made our experience one of a kind! She helped make my moms Birthday special!

Kelly Finney

Service was good. Our server was Patrick, he was very nice. I just feel the food wasn't as good as the price would indicate. The fried calamari was soggy not crisp. The main dishes were good and the desert which we got an Italian cream cake and cheesecake were both dry. As in when you put your spoon into the cheesecake it crumbled apart. Not good. And the cream cake was basically the same.

Rebekkah Brown

I love this place, and I've visited this restaurant often. You get huge plates of food and it's delicious! The atmosphere is lovely, too.

Shaun Woodcock

Great food. Excellent service. Huge portions of food. If you leave there hurry it's your fault.

dbone61 .

Went for my wife’s and granddaughter’s birthdays, 7 of us in all, counting 2 toddlers. We sat at the kitchen table, which comfortably seats 6, so it was a little crowded. No worries though as our awesome waitress Shirley, and her able bodied trainee Evan, kept our table clear of used dishes, promptly prepared our leftovers to take home (no small task as we had apps, salad, three entrees, going to three different households) and led a rousing rendition of the Buca birthday song! The food was great (ordered too much but it was a celebration) but the service really stood out! We all had a blast and left in wheelbarrows LOL. Thanks Shirley for making the night great!

Hannah Hatton

We have been going to Bucas on Hurstbourne for nearly a decade. We absolutely love it! The wait staff is always amazing and very friendly! The manager, Dino, is the most friendly person. He always makes a point to stop at our table and talk to our kids, as well as us. Micah, our server, was very accommodating to our many requests. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone. A five star place for sure!!

Taylor Roby

We had dinner reservations tonight for our anniversary and the service was excellent! Fast service, very clean! Shirley was our waitress and she was so nice! She was friendly and attentive to our needs. I highly recommend coming to Buca di Beppo

Taylor Sorbello

Love Buca! Been coming here for years. Always worth the long drive! The staff is very polite, even including management, and everyone always makes us feel welcome. Will be back soon!

Jeffrey P

Excellent experience! We ordered the lasagna and make sure you ask for the extra marinara sauce. We sat in the "wine room" and will return soon! Our server, Roman was excellent!

Johnny Mc Nubs

My wife and I go to dinner here at minimum, every year for our anniversary. I love the food, the service is very good. Most years I do something special at dinner for my wife, I hired a singer one year( one song) , had some special scrypt that was placed before we were sat on another year, nothing elaborate. They are a great place to visit for a special occasion or just a night out. Yes, it is not the cheapest Italian around, but if you are after a good tasting food, large portions you can take home, a unique atmosphere and a good experience. This is a great place for that. Even over 14 years of going here, the experience stays the same. The staff changes but the demeanor does not which would imply that it is a company value. I will return and would recommend it to anyone.

Alexis Maultsby

The food was amazing today as always!!! We came for my husbands birthday and Shirley our waitress was awesome! Drinks stayed refilled and she was extremely friendly. Thanks Shirley

Tiffani Sawyer

Laticia in Louisville, Kentucky off Hurstbourne Parkway was an awesome waitress. Food was great and margaritas were even better! First time experience and will be coming back!!

Chris Tolbert

Good food, and lots of it. And good service.

Theresa Render

Some of the best Italian food in Louisville! Sign up for the texts & bday club, you get amazing deals & a gigantic ice cream sundae! 21+ definitely try the drink specials. One of the few places iv been able to find cannoli's in town!

Scottie Dibble

Shirley was incredible! came for my brother’s birthday and she hit every single note in the Buca birthday song!!! she SURELY was the best waitress

Danielle Adams

I loved this place. It was out first time eating here so the staff offered to seat us in the kitchen. I enjoyed way hing them prepare everything and service was immediate. Our waitress was very nice as was the manager who stopped by the table. The portions are family size so a small fed my and my boyfriend twice over. It was the best meatballs I've ever eaten.

This is the first time here with family. The food was fantastic the helpings was so much. We had a birthday for a 2 yr old and Thier ice cream /brownie dessert was awesome. Shirley our hostess was fantastic she met all our needs, I give her a 5 star review also.

Mark Koenig

This is a place that serves very good food and alot of it,so you always have plenty to take home.

David Cardwell

First time there, we had brussel sprouts and prosciutto for starters, it was delicious, I couldn't stop eating it. We enjoyed spaghetti and meatballs for the entree, it was good, the portions were huge. It was take home Tuesday, we got a free rigatoni to bring home and bake, how nice is that? Steven was our waiter and did an excellent job making us feel at home, just like the family atmosphere. You will not leave hungry, if you do, it's your own fault. Thanks Buca, we will definitely be back.

David Ortega

Shirley was a amazing waiter, super friendly and hospitable made everyone feel right at home while dining, 5 stars!

Jeff Slyn

Once they turned down the A/C in the kitchen, it was great. They let us substitute, actually remove, some items. Slow waiter but still a wonderful experience.

Leigh Webster

Dinner was good however, if your going to charge $7 to add Chicken to your pasta please add something to the chicken! No flavor or spice. Very boarding chicken, like you just opened from a can, heated & placed on pasta. You can do better!

Boris Suarez

This was our first time. Plates are amazingly huge. When it says is for three or five people believe them. Preparation was great service was good.

Michelle Connors

Dinner was great, service was even better. Our pasta was absolutely magnificent and it got to our table less than 7 minutes after we ordered. Shirley our waitress was even better! Constantly checking if we needed anything while refilling water, bread and napkins. Was extremely kind and constantly had a smile on her face. One of the best experiences I've had, alot thanks to Shirley.

Bill McAdams

Shirley was awesome best time ever never have we had such a great dinner

Calico The Great

The food and service is great. Very respectful and welcoming. The dishes they serve are for sharing so they come in portions that can serve a few people. Very delightful place to have a nice quite lunch or dinner.

Melissa Rennirt

Shirley was amazing! Thank you so much!

Giving it a 3 to be fair. The server was nice, but the staff never showed up to light candle for my husband even though we had the hand on the table. The portion sizes were great for our family of 5 to split. But I was expecting more authentic Italian cusisine based on the description. We were also sat at the bar room with my 3 children who noticed the photos with scantilt clad and naked women (noting my 9 yeat old son pointed out the naked woman's privates in one painting) so I suggest not sitting there if you have children. These salad and bread was excellent. Generic noodles in our soaghetti and the sauce was so runny it didn't stay on the pasta. Plain grated parmesan on the table. Overall it was okay. If I go back okay if I don't no big loss.


75% of the food was not good, either flavorless or undercooked. The restaurant itself is very tacky and cluttered. It looks like your drunk frat boy roommate decorated his basement with thrift store stuff. Waitress had no personality. Very disappointed with the experience, won't be coming back.

Pretty pricey and a bit inconvienent to dine at for couples since most of their dishes are intended for parties of 3 or more, but the amazing food makes it worth it. I highly recommend their meatballs.

It's decent food and the restaurant is clean. The food is not special or terribly good. The plates you eat off of are set at the table so even hot food gets cold quickly. The last time I went the waitress was very apathetic towards our table and our simple needs like silverware.

Placed an order to be delivered. Ordered a Large Italian Supreme and this is what we got... Cannot post A picture of it. A smaller Margarit pizza. Called them and the manager said, "I have no control over that." Meaning I guess the delivery service. They cannot send the right order if you order through delivery and they cannot control that??? Will not order delivery again from them then...


I had never been here before and just assumed it was another Italian restaurant, I was wrong. All of their food is served family style, meaning everything on the menu comes in large portions for 3 or more people depending the size you order. They have different sized portions for wether you have a small group or say 5 or more. It is on the pricier end, the hardest part about eating here is getting everyone to agree on a dish because there's a large menu to choose from. The food was very good and the server was very kind.

Yee, good ol' Buca Di Beppo. I have fantastic memories here. Most of them being on my friends birthdays. I love how they sing their own happy birthday song, absolutely love it. The last time I went to Buca, I ordered a pepperoni pizza, which as their food usually is, it was marvelous. Where do I get started on the atmosphere? Their whole place is filled with artwork and colorful lights. I can't recall if they had any music, but that right there would be enough to say their atmosphere was great. The service ranges from slow to average, but it's worth the wait. The food is the best. It really isn't meant to be eaten by one person, as the meal is so large you can share it with at max 4 people. I always have to get a box here too, it's unavoidable. 5/5, would eat again.


Really really good place to eat and you get plenty of food.
