Livonia >Buca Di Beppo
More expensive than your average Italian.. The food is good, but not THAT good...doesn't quite justify the pricing, but I think the experience of dining in is the big redeeming factor here. Great service, lively or romantic atmosphere, depending on where you sit, time you go. Get a carafe of wine and take your time enjoying the large portions.
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant..
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!
Over-hyped Italian! Great artwork! Avoid Friday nights. Food was OK, house wine was good. Wait staff was nice at first but lost patience and was rude at the end - must have been a long nite!!
A fun place to eat.
This is not going to be the best Italian food that you have ever eaten, but if you can relax, and enjoy a crowd you will have plenty of food and fun. The restaurant serves a lot of food and it is somewhat cafeteria food in nature. I enjoy the people watching here, and the servers are pretty enjoyable. They usually seat you promptly and the serving sizes are generous.
I felt that the food and drinks were pretty fairly priced and that the pace of the table service was perfect. You can enjoy your meal without feeling pressured by the wait staff.
A NICE PLACE FOR A PARTY WITH A LARGE GROUP.
I come from a large Italian family, and we chose Buca to celebrate my mother's
birthday. There was no problem accomidating such a large group although we phoned
ahead for reservations. The food was ok but I felt it was a little too expensive. We
all really loved the whole atmosphere thing going on there, so Italian and festive.
I would probably go back for another large group party.
i don't believe it. the salad was tasteless, the pasta reminded me of a grade school lunch program and the veal marsala- the meat itself was not only tough and grissly, but the "marsala" sauce was reminiscent of grape jelly. in fact, it was so awful that i went back to another location and tried again- even worse. a rating of 0.1 wouild be more than charitable- could be the worst restaurant ever.
Not bad for a chain.. The food is above average, in that it comes pretty close to the Italian food I enjoyed at my Mom's and Grandmother's houses. I love the pizza. It's close to the real thing served in Italy. Not recommended for couples. Go with a bigger group; the bigger the group, the less expensive it is.
Just OK. Large portions of mediocre food served up in a "TGI Friday's gone Italian" atmosphere. Good service, decent prices.
Food Factory. Giant plates of factory food with Italian names. More of a bad thing is not good. A hokey theme park with food.
Not so great.
Saying this is great Italian food is like saying McDonald's is high cuisine.
You get a lot of OK food cooked by high school students for not a lot of money. Great place to go with big groups.
But, if you think this is GOOD Italian food then you've never had good Italian food.
