My mother and I stopped in last minute right when we arrived in DC, they were really busy but still found us seats. Food was great, service was great, all in all, we had a good time!

Let me begin by saying this restaurant is not at all our style. We didn't expect much of the create your own pasta menu but all wanted to try it. We were quite pleased and enjoyed the food. Pastas were cooked properly and tasted great. The pizza was very good and the meatballs, while enormous, were delicious. They tasted homemade.... More

Ten minutes later a bowl of pasta arrived ( first time we saw a server). Asked to order wine and for knives. Another ten minutes and chicken... More

The pasta bolognese, fettuccine and chicken part were good and served family style to over 20 people. Salads and desserts were good as well.

We always enjoy this restaurant as the food is excellent, unfortunately on this occasion although our server was friendly he was not very attentive. My main gripe was the dirty toilets which need bleaching from head to toe ! Not sure I would visit again.

Unless you are just so hungry you could eat a horse, share, share, share. Large portions and some really great food. Had the Chicken Limon and was totally satisfied. Busy place so call ahead.

We made reservations for dinner. We then learned that all dishes at dinner are shared, double portions. No exceptions. If you go with a friend or loved one, you MUST order the same double-portioned dish, or else order two dishes -- for four people, and of course at four times the normal price! I asked for an exception, and was... More

I always like ending a school trip with Buca di Beppo, it is just the perfect way to settle down with the kids and be a family. Let there be no doubt about it, this is a family place. It is loud, it is cluttered, it is homey, and there is A LOT of food. Their portions are extravagant, if... More
