The food here was alright, but hardly worth the prices. I'd heard good things about this place. I'll admit it's a step up from A cart on the side of the road but I wasn't impressed.

I really liked the pesto pasta with chicken The garlic bread was very tasty. The chicken was very tender and tasty with a very good quality. We were there for a rehearsal dinner and that was nice although the food was a little bit late.

This was one of the better experiences that I've had at Buca di Beppo. I find it rather overpriced even though it is delicious food. The atmosphere is great for a family setting or a casual get together with long lost friends.
