Great Italian Food, Good Atmosphere, Excellent Proportions!.
Bring your appetite and as many friends as you can grab! An excellent place for fabulous food and homestyle sharing all around! I've had many a good memory over these tables, with the delicious food, and great friends.
Lively Atmosphere...Overpriced Salads.
Buca Di Beppo reminds me a lot of the Stinking Rose in San Francisco, as far as the ambiance. However, there are only two memorable dishes here...one is the Linguine Frutti Di Mare (a great seafood pasta dish with a little kick!) and the other was the Bread Pudding served with a heavenly chocolate sauce...which unfortunately they don't have on their menu anymore. Bummer.
Would I come here again? Sure, if I was invited by a group and it was the restaurant of choice...but I wouldn't initiate the invitation myself.
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant.. In Short Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
Best Family Dining (Italian) in Roseville.
My family consists of three very hungry individuals. We always are satisfied with the quality of food and the pricing at Buca........but there is going to be leftovers no matter what........... On Saturdays and Sundays, they feature a very special Angel Hair pasta with prawns, capers, feta cheese, and greek olives, in a very spicy sauce. This dish is so wonderful, its a mystery why its not on their permanent menu......my wife says the cheese ravioli is the best she's ever tasted......
HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION......but if you are seated next to a family with very small children, you should politely ask to be moved (or plan on having an extremely unpleasant dining experience).
Good food ,but bring a bunch of friends to share!.
We found Bucc'a food to be pretty good and authentic, but if you are a couple that likes a variety of different foods, this is NOT the palce for you. Dishes arrive "family style" and in gargantuan proportions that easily feed six, so make sure you have a party of six!
Food was good and I loved the decor.Sevice was above average also. Not a long wait for seating.
We will go back........but with 4 more friends or a pack of hungry teenaged boys with hollow legs!
Pricing of Buca Di Beppo.
The portions on all the foods are huge. However, they charge a lot for their dessert and drinks such as soda. So just because the food is a deal, does not necessarily mean the drinks and other things are.
Great food. Great restaurant. Top 10 in outdoor dining? Who would rate eating in their car in the Top 10? Don't go here for excellent outdoor dining. Go here for a great family get together. Foods good and atmosphere is just right for a reunion. Elegant outdoor dining it is not. Who voted for this under this category?
Skip This Place.
Thought we'd try something new. They had high prices, and since we had never been there we tried the dinner for two, 2 pastas and an entree. The waiter assured us that this was "authentic italian cuisine, with lots of garlic and olive oil," like we had never had italian food before.
The food came quickly and it was easy to see why. Both pastas were of the penne variety, one with a red meat sauce and the other with an alfredo sauce and...peas. Both were terrible. I swear they got this stuff out of a can. Where was all of the olive oil and garlic? I tasted only butter and tomatos. We like Italian, we know what it is supposed to taste like. That wasn't it.
The entree was some shrimp dish- not good and the sauce was boring. Go to macaroni grill- its much better.
big is not better!.
Only for a group of like-minded with large appetites!Everything is served "family-style" - for example, the chicken cacciatore weighs 7 pounds (per our server) - as if that makes it wonderful! (It wasn't).
The best item we had - the baked ravioli - giant ravioli filled with a fluffy ricotta and smothered with very tasty fresh tomatoes. Tasteless salad, noisy room - will not go there again unless dragged unwillingly! But interesting photos on walls.
