    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Had a group of ten former coworkers that were meeting up to catch up during a local convention. We got seated promptly, being seated in the Pope room as we had called ahead and reserved it. Our waiter was excellent and provided amazing feedback on meal and wine choices. We felt that we didnt need to quiet ourselves due to the fact that the pope room is a little more secluded. It was a great experience and I would highly suggest utilizing this space if you are dining with 10 - 15 people.

    A group of 8 went for a birthday celebration. Food was very good, especially the spicy chicken dish. Never rushed or made to feel we overstayed our welcome. Desert of brownie bites and ice cream was the perfect ending. Everyone had fun, more than enough to eat and we had some leftovers for the next day.

    I have to say that overall I was very satisfied with the service and food. My only complaint was that I made reservations months in advance and even confirmed with the receptionist the day before our reservation. We traveled to Anaheim from Portland Oregon and were very excited to try bucca do beppo since there is not one here. I arrived 25-30 minutes to insure that we got our reservation and seated quickly. We ended up waiting for any an hour which was about 45 minutes after my reservation. It wasn't until complaining a few times to the receptionist and how long we had been waiting did we finally get seated. I would hope that next time my family visits disneyland, we will have better luck with our reservation and being seated quickly.

    There are 4 October birthdays in my family so I chose this restaurant for dinner because the food is made for big families and for sharing. I also chose this restaurant bcause I went to the San francisco restaurant last month and didn't get enough of the spicy chicken rigatonni.

    This used to be our favorite restaurant. The prices have gone up, the flavor has disappeared. The veal marmalade was veal soup with no marmalade and tough veal. Don't even get me started on the Tijuana photography peddling that took place. We left hungry and stopped at Rubio's for dinner. We won't be back.

    I had an opportunity to bring a party of 12 for dinner during recent business meetings. We were seated at a round table complete with lazy Susan and bust of The Pope in the center. The sever (Lauren) was excellent offering compelte explanations of the service and various dishes. The food isn't gourmet, but very tasty and plentiful. I especially enjoyed the Eggplant parmigiana which was delicious and tender. When the bill arrived I was delighted to see that I was WELL within budget! They handle large groups with ease which isn't often the case in many restaurants.

    You have to order for the whole table, meaning that you cannot order individually. I had reservations for a party of four, and we did not want to order the exact same thing for everyone to eat, so we left without ordering. This applies to salad, main course, everything. So unless you want to eat exactly the same thing as everyone else in your party, go somewhere else. When we were leaving, the server said not to worry about it, that it happens a lot! Whose running this place?

    There were a total of 7 adults and 6 children in our group. We ordered what we usually ordered-Caesar salad, trio appetizer, linguine frutti di mare, chicken marsala, supreme pizza and margherita pizza. The food was usual was simply scrumptious and super delicious. One of us had a birthday so Buca crew came by with candles and sang the Italian version of the b'day song for us. Only complaint; due to it being a sunday dinner, it was very busy the service was slow (but that is understandable). They may have been under staffed. Everything else made up for it though. Thanks Buca for another great experience at your casa!!

    The food was very good! Taste like home made! We made a reservation and were in on time. We made a last change to a table rather than a booth. I know this was being difficult especially on a very busy night but they made the change with smiles! Everyone was very friendly. Family style serving was fun! I definitely recommend!

    We are a group of 13 (8 adults, 3 kids & 2 toddlers) trying to find a great dinner place reservation around Disneyland on a Friday night. You can imagine how hard that could be, but Buca di Peppo saved the day. We came in late (well, that happens when you are a huge group with kiddos) so they had to cancel our reservation. They said they can only hold the table for 10 minutes. But they were able to secure us a table in no time. And everybody was so nice and fun. We were placed in the "Pope Room" which is a tiny alcove. It almost felt like an exclusive for us. And the food is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. For a group of 13 which ordered to our hearts delight from appetizers to desserts, we paid about 350 including tip. Great value overall. Will do it again

    Food was good and fast but our server was not friendly. I work in the food industry so I'm usually empathetic to servers and usually patient especially if I can see that you are busy. During my visit though it was not busy but it seems like my server was not interested in providing any service.

    Kindly, for the cost of food, I expected a high class establishment. Although not low-class, it was not high class. The prices are structured for two entrees. So, a bowl of rigatoni is $23.99 and it satisfies two guests. No single serve. I ordered the walnut salad and rigatoni and shared mine, while my 3 other guests ordered various things. Salad was way too salty and the rigatoni was overcooked without much marinara. Why add salt? Also, the scenery was old. The restaurant was way to cluttered with out-dated Italian memorabilia. Our waiter was friendly, and tried to be professional; it just was not in him. I tire of the lazy, non-professional staff employed in what is supposed to be a mid- level upscale place!!! This is not. Thank you.

    This restaurant allows an independent photographer offers FREE picture, but actually it's not free, pressures guests to purchase the expensive pictures after develop them. Maybe the location is in Disneyland area, most of the guests are visitors usually opt to spend more money without thinking twice. I was a local, entertaining international guests who doesn't speak English well. The photographer kept saying "Free" made my guests wanted the picture taken, ended spending $30 for two pictures... Very Tricky, and I didn't expect that kind of service at the restaurant...

    This visit was very nice. I had a group of 4 with a reservation and was seated promptly. All foods we ordered were available and delicious. I ordered the broccoli side for the first time, which was quite spicy if that's not something you're used to. The photographer was very polite and not at all pushy. Overall, an excellent visit.

    We were there for a birthday. Everything was great ....there service could have been better. It took a while to get a server. We were seated for a good while and I had to find seine to ask for drinks. After that it was better.....however definitely think a resturant should make sure once you are seated that drinks and appetizers are in front of you quickly!

    Not my first time at Buca, service was always good whether it be for dine in or take out. Our server that night probably was not in the mood to either work or give good customer service. They were busy that night, but still not an excuse. Food tasted different too, I've always loved their pastas, and again it was quite disappointing that night.
