  • "Awesome place for dinner to celebrate special occasions like family birthdays."
    Dined on 4/7/2014
  • "Had a nice dinner for a party of 14. Used gift cards from Costco. Ordered a couple of large meat platters. Next time, should consider a large and a small of each meat platter. Also ordered a couple of large pastas and this amount seemed to do well."

  • "The wait staff was super friendly and attentive, the food was really good, but the noise level was high. It seems to be a gathering place for large groups and special occasions which guarantees a lot of chatting and laughter."

  • "I reserved a table for 18 here for my girlfriends birthday and the staff were able to sit us right away. Service was prompt, and the servers were very attentive. Food came out right away and everyone was happy."

  • "I decided to spend my birthday dinner there. they have good food for a big party. I had two servers and yet I did not get enough service. it took forever to get our drinks and when they did they still forgot two drinks and did not bring it till our food came. I was waiting forever to get my drink order the both servers came and not until the third time I got their attention. they seemed so rushed and like they just wanted us to leave. did not enjoy my birthday. also we had to rearrange out tables so that the whole party sat together and when we started to move the tables there was about four servers that saw us and did not bother to ask us for help. the worst servers I have ever got"

  • "Great place to have dinner with kids. No worry about noise and rowdy kids. Plenty of food - family style to share"
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "We were not told that the linguini with clams was a spicy dish, so it wasn't a great pick for our group. There were no indications on the menu, coupon, or from the waitress. A little heads up could have made this a more pleasant experience. We did bring it on to he waitress and she was just matter of fact about it. Lesson learned, ask questions on all the dishes you order there."

  • "Great decor, great food, staff seemed tired and unkempt. Except one host with red hair."

  • "Buca always been a good place for large group. It is a family style dining. But count on $30 per head for cost"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "The only thing we didn't like was that the food cooled down fast. It was not hot enough. The flavor was great."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Had a seafood pasta, spaghetti and meatballs, and the chicken Glorioso. Chicken was delicious and sauced perfectly. The seafood linguine needed sauce as it was simply pasta and seafood. The spaghetti had virtually no sauce on it and was just boring and tasteless. We brought most of that dish home and it will probably be thrown away unless I reinvent it."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Buca's is always a fun place to go for birthdays or special occasions. The food is good and priced well with generous portions (I am Italian so.....)....but, if you're looking for a quiet little get-away, you might want to look elsewhere, but for lively fun and good food especially for that BIRTHDAY, etc., this is a great place!"
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "Bucca Di Beppo is a great place to enjoy large family gatherings and even smaller ones too. It is one of the few restaurants my dad actually looks forward to dinning at. All of the food is always so delicious and fresh. Everyone who I have ever invited to dine there comments about how fresh and light the food is by Italian food standards. We have other plans in future to dine here. Thanks to Open Table my dinner reservation was hassle free and our table was ready as promised. Keep up the great work, service, and quality and we will be sure to return."

  • "Buca always has good food, but their prices have gone way up especially for a glass of wine. Don't know what happened to our order, but it took forever and they got it wrong. We had 2 small children with us so it was difficult to have to wait so long for the entres. Our server even apologized many times for the wait. We were celebrating a birthday - they do not even give the person a dessert. It was very noisy and we had asked for a large booth but they did not give us one even though there were empty booths around."

  • "We had a work get together Friday evening over pasta and salad and dessert. The huge round table fit 9 adults easily in an area all our own. And the wait staff was very helpful. The price was good but we also had a 20% off coupon for the entire group meal. We will return to this location again."

  • "MY HUSBAND AND I WERE THERE FOR OUR 17TH ANNIV. WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE A GREAT CONVERSATION BECAUSE WE FELT COMFORTABLE AND SECLUDED IN ALL THE HUSTLE AND NOISE AROUND US THAT IT FELT NICE AND PRIVATE EVEN WITH A TABLE JUST FEET AWAY FROM US. WE COULDNT HEAR THEIR CONVERSATION AND WE FELT COMFY THEY COULDNT HEAR OURS. WE GOT TO WALK THROUGH THE KITCHEN BEFORE BEING SEATED. I NORMALLY LIKE TO ORDER VEIL CHOP AT ITALIAN RESTAURANTS BUT THEY ONLY OFFERED IT AS VEIL PARMESIAN AND MY HUSBAND ORDERED THE FRUTTI DE MARE. MY VEIL WAS JUST OK AND HIS FRUTTI DE MARE WAS VERY GOOD BUT WE'VE HAD BETTER. WE ALSO ORDERED THE BRUCHETTA (AWESOME!!!). SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD, INFORMATIVE, & QUICK. NEXT TIME I'LL TRY A DIFFERENT DISH. DEF GOING BACK."

  • "Made reservations 1 month prior to visit requested the kitchen table. Arrived on time had to wait over 25 minutes. ... Didn't say anything thinking they were waiting to seat us at the kitchen table. After waiting I finally had to ask what was taking so long. So they called us next walked us through the kitchen noticed table was empty, but didn't get seated there. So I told the host I had requested this table she saud it was already reserved. VERY disappointed I thought the reason we waited so long was because we were waiting for that table. Overall our server was great... still left a 25% tip."

  • "We had a minivan full of kids and they wanted spaghetti. First thought was Buca...but there were none in the long beach area and we were headed to the san Gabriel valley. Plus it was saturday nite. We were able to find a buca nearby and make reservations on open table for within the hour. Which was amazing, because when we got to the restaurant they were giving people 1.5 hours wait times. The good was great and the service was ok considering how busy the restaurant was."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "I had a reservation but still had to wait 20min. walked in it was chaos. people everywhere waiting for a table. place was too noisy. felt like the place was a fire hazard. felt trapped and cramped. I think i'll stick to the olive garden."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "I love the food but the service needs major improvment! The kids at the front (host/hostess) never look at my request on OpenTable for a booth. This is the 4th time and everytime they take us to be seated always a table despite I reequest once again to the host. Next time will try a different Buca Di Bepo. Excellent food, the best lasagne I have ever had."

  • "I enjoy the family sized dishes allowing my date and I to share each others food, I am so thankful I made reservations the wait for 2 as a walk in was 90 mins!! Cocktails were delicious along w/ the food, and even tho we were seated next to a very large party; we were taken care of completely."
