BEST Italian food EVER – I have been searching for a good italian eatery in my area. I happened to past this place on many occasions and finally decided to go in. I must say, from my first visit, the staff made me feel at home and they serve large portion meals to make you feel you're getting your money's worth. The manager Nelson, is a very professional and approachable person which is not always easy to find. The staff welcomes you and maintain their professionalism at all times. For me, first impressions are lasting; I must say they did such an excellent job that it is now me & my family's FAVORITE italian restaurant; and if you give it the opportunity, believe me, it would become yours as well : )
Good portion for the price – We ordered calamari, meat sauce w/spaghetti and veal parmagiana. The first two are fine but the veal is a little rubbery. The place has an endless collection of pictures and photos that cover every wall. Food comes quickly despite a near-full house on a Friday night. The manager selectively picked out customers to greet which kinda raised our eyebrows. Either go to every table or don't do it at all. Prices are reasonable, better than Maggiano with its stupid rules and stuffy waiters.
Uh-Oh SpaghettiOs – The positives for this restaurant are a fun and casual atmosphere with decent service. The negative -- the food is simply dreadful.
From burned rubberized calamari, to meatballs the size of baseballs, to huge tasteless bowls of over-cooked and under-sauced pastas, I cannot recommend a single menu offering.
If you think SpaghettiOs is the height of Italian cuisine, this is your place. If not, try Sugos or even the Macaroni Grill.
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!
Bucca di Beppo – Tastes like fastfood. Not very good. I don't eat at Chain restaurants but I'd sooner go to the Olive garden than here.
Italy comes to Georgia – Fabulous. Best atmophere, great food, large portions, friendly staff. I am an Italian from Ohio and this IS great Italian food. Easy reservations, especially on Sunday afternoons. My extended family was very inpressed.
Really Nice Staff really bad food – The atmosphere is light hearted and the staff was really nice, but the food is probably some of the worst Italian food I have ever had. I am from NJ so I will mention that Italian food is my very favorite and if you happen to be from the Northeast don't even bother. My waitress was from the North and she knew right away what was wrong. Great service, awful food!
Always a Great Meal – We L-O-V-E Buca di Peppo! The food is great, the atmosphere is fun and the service is alway top-notch.
For those who like to eat with friends – Buca di beppo is THE place for people who like to eat in big groups. With family-style dining, the portions are large (for 3/4 ppl), yet pretty reasonable. The staff is friendly, and encourages you to have an 'equally' boisterous (yet family-friendly) experience. Groups of upto 5 should request the kitchen table, 10 or more should go for the 'pope' table. The 'spicy arrabiata' pizza is hands down the best pizza I've ever had, and the eggplant parmigiana is to dine for. For great value, go with the house chianti. Skip the excessively rum-soaked tiramisu
Corporate food – First and last time for this place. Went with a group which was the only saving grace as they had room for our large party. Food was so not good. Anyone who thinks this is Italian food must never have had the real thing. If you have kids or just are into incredibly huge portions of food - one order to serve at least 4 people this may be for you.
Service was - we're not really interested - can I help you?
