I am glad we made a reservation because they had a 40 person waiting list at 7 when we left. It is good for families, casual get-togethers, parties and big eaters. The portions are gigantic. The decor and the theme are cheesy, stereotyped Italian-American style. Good 60s pop, I have to admit. Servers are eager. Prices are outright cheap considering the quantity. We were a small family and it just wasn't a good fit for us. But it did cost under $30 p.p. so I was fine with trying it out.

Service and food were not enjoyable but were however ridiculously overpriced! I hadn't been there in 10 yrs and now I know why. It took our server over 15 minutes to even make eye contact to let him know our,waters had been empty for a long time. The Chicken Saltambucca with Artichoke had ONE artichoke heart divided among the 3 servings of chicken ($27) and the lemon sauce was so non-existent that we couldn't even dip our,($9.00) Garlic Bread in it. Then after 1/2 hr our waiter came by to say the pizza would be another 1/2 hour because they were running behind however after yet still another 1/2 hour he said it might be another 15 minutes. We cancelled the pizza and the manager came over to let us know he would remove the cancelled pizza from our check..DUH!!! Oh yeah and the server also screwed up our Caesar Salad because he couldn't understand "Bring 1/2 the salad out as usual and the other 1/2 in a to go container dry with the dressing in a separate container". and all this for only $60 + Tax/tip. Bye Bye Buca di Beppo.

Unique, local restaurant and decor, very large servings e.g. Spaghetti comes with 2- 1/2 pound meatballs with very welcoming staff who seemed genuinely glad to work here and wait on us.

Am a picky eater but would definitely go back for the very quirky Italian decor-that includes popes and nuns, better than decent food and, local vibe.

Though noisy, that's what makes it great for large family gatherings. Although if you pick the right times it can be quieter and more intimate. The food is plentiful and more than serves the number of people it indicates. Great variety of meals to choose from. Mostly a pick a few favorites and everyone shares in the tasting! Definitely a casual place to dine. There is a bar we don't drink so I can't comment on that. The atmosphere is light, fun and maybe a little too bawdy on the selection of pictures hung around the rooms. In general family friendly. If you're religious it may have a tinge of sacrilege--it's not meant to be taken seriously. The food however is seriously good!!!!
