Diner Reviews
  • "Our food came out after a table that was sat after us. I had to ask for my water to be refilled. Took order and sat for 25 minutes with nobody coming by. Finally had to ask for our server from another server. Server's response was "I already took their order". While here, another table had a server bring out the wrong dish and when he got to the table, he proudly told the table he was talking to someone and got distracted and forgot which table it was for. Not a good thing to admit to customers. We won't be back. If we're going to pay money for pasta, this better be amazing and service better be there. We will just make it ourselves next time and we'll get much more chicken in the Fettucinni."

  • "We had a wonderful time. Our waitress, Alvetta, remembered us from when we had been there before. She was so pleasant, very attentive with our drink refills. Also, what seemed a little above and beyond, we went in with a coupon for a free desert(anniversary). She apparently was so attentive she heard us talking about the desert we wanted and when we were ready brought it to us without having to ask."

  • "I didn't realize how expensive this place was! 1 app, 1 small pasta, 1 beer, 1 margarita was almost $70! Food was on par with olive garden. At least you get salad and breadsticks there!"

  • "The food is always good and the servers are awesome. You get huge portions at a reasonable price. And a photographer comes to your table for a few pictures that are made into a postcard as a free souvenir. Big fun!"

  • "Seems too expense. Even with coupon. Do not expect to return. Noise level way too high. Good for you that you have large groups, not for me unless I'm in the group. Love quite dinning with wine."

  • "Even the small orders proved too much for two big appetites. Plenty of leftovers which I enjoyed the next day. The spicy chicken rigatoni was excellent."

  • "We arrived on time for our reservation for 12 people. We were given a terrible table that was a booth for six with a table for another 6 connected to it. Very bad location and difficult for people to move in and out. We complained and got another table, we appreciate the effort to get us seated in a more suitable table, but it continuned to go downhill. But we got probably one of the worst servers ever. He forgets everything, we did not get the soup we ordered, the butter we asked for and we had to ask for plates, and he would disapear for long periods. I had to get our own dessert plates and take out boxes. The food came out in batches as well, the meatballs came 10 mins behind the spaghetti as did the salmon--we had to keep following up."

  • "We order a pizza to start and a ravioli order to follow. After 25 minutes the waitress came with the ravioli and when we asked about our pizza he ran to order it. I think you change to often your waitress and they are not professional. I was not satisfy at all. There is a lot of restaurants around to get better service."

  • "Our server was nice, but he spilled a cup of water on my boyfriend's mom, and while he did apologize and clean up the spill, he didn't make any effort to make up for the inconvenience. Also, throughout our meal, my water cup stayed empty, and we had to flag him down just to make requests. I have definitely had better service here before, but bummed that our server did not make Father's Day very special to our group."

  • "The food were yummy! Calamari, tutti di mare pasta and carbonara were perfect! I would probably eat again at buca but not at brea. The hostess Ashley just ruined our dining experience!!"

  • "We arrived 10 minutes early and we were promptly seated. The waitress was a little cold but she was attentive and got our orders in quick. We ate with another couple and all of our drinks and food was spot on. The bill wasn't has bad as I expected and the great leftovers made up for the prices. A1 service in a great family atmosphere. I would recommend to anyone....make sure you are hungry."

  • "We went to dinner with some friends to catch up since we hadn't seen them in some time. We were seated in a back room along with several large parties and the noise level was out of control, there was even a choir. It was too noisy for us to enjoy ourselves. Every time we turned around your staff was singing. All of that is fine, but maybe there can be a dedicated room for large parties. It was just too difficult for us to hear one another in conversation. It's interesting that your Noise Level rating doesn't give a negative option for the diner to choose. I'm Italian, and I know how noisy we can be, but this was just a lot of large parties and a lot of people celebrating at once. We were just trying to have a nice dinner, 4 of us. "

  • "Buca was an old favorite for us and we haven't eaten there in a few years. Salad was excellent, spaghetti was good, ziti was lacking. Seemed like we were bothering the server. I still don't understand why people are seated right next to each other in a restaurant that is pretty much empty. Still a cool place, just not that night. "
    Dined on 5/22/2014
  • "service was good - and that's the best I can say... the food was, esp. the ziti - was just disappointing...like beefaroni...except it was drier with less sauce"

  • "We were given "The Pope" room. It was awesome. Service was great. Food was very good. Moving the big lazy susan was difficult at times, but was worth the trouble to get to sample all of the different dishes we all ordered. Made for a special memory for our son's college graduation. Thank You"

  • "The family took my mother-in-law out for a nice dinner. It was her first time there so we was apprehensive as to whether or not she'd like the food. Boy...she loved it!! Not only the food, but the service and atmosphere too! We were so glad the photographer was there to capture our special family time pigging-out together. Our server and photographer provided excellent service."

  • "We went to dinner at Buca Di Beppo-Brea to celebrate our daughter's college graduation. The service was excellent, as was the food. Very generous portions, the small orders were enough to feed the 4 of us. They also had a very amiable young man taking pictures at the table, and he did a great job! Not pushy, very professional. we enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it for a relaxed, dining experience."

  • "I went for Mother's Day. I made a reservation and was seated immediately. It was my first time and it was so cool to get a small tour through the kitchen as they seat at your table. I wish I knew they had a "Chefs table" where you can see all the action in the kitchen. Served family style at your table which is great for trying multiple dishes with large portions."

  • " Even though i had a reservation, still had to wait 40 minutes to get seated after being told it would be 10-15 minutes upon checking in. The pictures on the wall and restroom are strange and offensive.Dont really care for the whole family share dish concept, as its tough for everybody to agree on one dish if you are a small party. Why can't they offer individual meals? Ordered Veal, side of spaghetti, and a salad for three people, and the bill came to over $90.00 including tax and tip! When i orderded the dishes, i never specified the size of the portion, assuming that i was ordering the small sizes. When i got hte bill, i discovered i got the large. No wonder i had so much food left over. No need to go back for overpriced italian."

  • "I made a reservation for 5pm. However, I was seated at 5:30. Not only that was bad enough the manager and one of the employee checked me out and gave me the dirtiest look or rolled their eyes . Just because I'm young doesn't mean I deserve such behavior. All I asked was if I can order in advance so when we get seated we will get our food right away since we are in a time budget. The waiter was nice that's the ONLY reason service got a 2 star"

  • " When we arrived we were seated quickly ( we had reservations), staff was friendly, especially our server, and the ambiance was fun. However, we ordered three appetizers and after approx 20 mins, we received one of our entrees (pizza), we had to ask for our appetizers and only received two of them. Our other entrees arrived within a few minutes, except for my sons order of plain spaghetti with butter. It took approx another 10 mins for him to receive his spaghetti which was an extremely small portion. In knowing that this was his entree and all the other portion were large, it was surprising how little this amount of food was. The waiter was sympathetic and offered to bring something else but we were done by that point. "

  • "Took family for a nice Easter lunch . The food quality has gone down. The price has gone way up. We were disappointed with the pepperoni pizza grease & fruits de Mari was very bland. We used to love them both . Service was good as usual. Bummed for the first time Buca Brea. We will find a new family spot . "

  • "So all we ordered was a small pizza for me and my wife and a spaghetti and meatball plate for our son from the kids menu. We got the pizza pretty quick but didn't get our son's dish on time. We wound up sharing the pizza between all of us. Halfway trough the pizza, we still hadn't received our son's plate so we just cancelled it. Waiter was awesome and prices are good but wish the table was completely served at the same time. "

  • "The food was average Italian food. Although the portions that most people rave about are large, for the price, it's a rip-off. The service was not great, and I saw a hostess cutting bread in the kitchen (that they actually walk customers through on purpose) with her bare hands. I won't go back to this place again."
