- The only bummer...LoveBucadiBeppoDined on 8/24/2014The kitchen was out of lasagna, we ordered a basket of house bread and never received it, we received one of our entrees well after we'd received the other entrees and in fact had to ask when it would be coming out. Overall it was a very good experience but just seemed a bit off with the lack of items and wait time to receive our order.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- ServiceKtlnzmomDined on 8/23/2014Our main server was good but the second server who waited on the table next to us seemed rude and unhelpful. Our busboy was excellent. He kept our glasses filled and brought any thing we needed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BalisimoOpenTable Diner Since 2010Dined on 8/20/2014Excellent service and food would recommend any time to anyone. Very eclectic atmosphere and fun. Our family goes here for special occasions. It is always enjoyable. Chicken Parmigiano, mixed salad with extra olives and Macaroni Rosa is to die for, desert isn't bad either Hi HiSpecial Features:
- SassyDined on 8/14/2014I celebrated my 72 birthday at Bucca's with friends and family. We all came home very feeling very happy with the good food and the staff was awesome.Special Features:
- too expensiveGood4thePriceDined on 8/10/2014The waiter should have warned us about the size of dishes. Too expensive for pasta.Special Features:
- corvettegrampyDined on 8/10/2014The food and service at Buca is always good. This time it was exceptional. Thank you for making a birthday extra special.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Decently predictableComanchepilotVIPDined on 7/31/2014Every time I come and get something different because you will basically like everything - They have food specials online so download a coupon and have someone in your party get that - this past time by drink cost more than my meal - and that should not happen in any restaurant. Would be nice if they offered their drink specials without the stupid flashing cup that I don't really want to take home for $10 instead of $14 . . .
- Great tasting foodlove2visitnewplacesDined on 7/30/2014This was my first time at Buca Di Beppo, they have great tasting food. I love the family size portions. Atmosphere was nice and cozy. Noise level was energetic but were a big family so we like it that way. We did get seated in the back of the restaurant. Air conditioning wasn't as nice as the front, but the staff was accommodating by allowing us to move to a different table. We were there to celebrate my daughters 19th birthday. They did sing, but no free dessert. I know they don't have to supply anything, but it would have been nice, especially when you have so many other dining places who do give a free dessert.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- BAD SERVICE/ GREAT FOODEnjoy2dineDined on 7/29/2014I love the food there, however the service was terrible. The restaurant was empty and some how it took forever to get the house bread and first appetizer out to us. It also took forever for our main courses to come out. Our waitress kept apologizing for the delay. The manager never visited our table and inquired about our dinner, but the restaurant photographer sure visited to collect the money for our photos!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner at BdB.Kennedy42Dined on 7/19/2014Our party of seven had a wonderful time dining at Buca do Beppo. The wait staff was terrific and very knowledgeable. They went out of their way to accommodate our son who has life threatening allergies. All of the food was outstanding but the tiramisu is not to be missed.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Heavy-handed with the red pepperOtterMamaDined on 7/19/2014We started with fried mozzarella and bruschetta. The cheese was perfectly prepared - fresh cheese lightly breaded and not overfried. The bruschetta was beautifully presented but tomato chunks were so large it was difficult to keep on the crostini. We ordered spicy chicken rigatoni (it WAS spicy but very little chicken), veal parmigiana (very tender and not overfried), prosciutto-stuffed chicken breasts (moist and tender), Italian broccoli romano (almost no parmesan and so much red pepper that it was inedible), stuffed shells and garlic mashed potatoes (both unremarkable), and pizza bianca (deliciously garlicky). Desserts were canneloni (eh) and creme cake (outstanding). Service was so-so for early Sat evening and not at capacity.Special Features:
- Amazing!!!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 7/18/2014Seriously I've liked this place my whole life!!! It has amazing food and great servers that ACTUALLY do there job!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Average FoodStarfoxDined on 7/12/2014The pizza came to our table lukewarm. The Chicken Florentine pasta barely had any taste. The tiramisu had less rum flavor than before. Overall, it was a shadow of the Bucca I went two years ago. And the music was too loud.
- horribleyalanizDined on 7/11/2014Horrible. THe worst food I have ever paid for. Very bland had to add salt, pepper, and crushed red peppers to at least be able to swallow it
- Nothing specialKrystleDined on 7/8/2014Came her for my bday on a tuesday 7/8 . Server was awesome! Wish I remembered his name! Other than the rest was not impressive. They had tables sitting super close together as if the place was way over crowded when it wasn't. Felt like it was vday or something. I had to sqweze myself in between the tables just to sit down. Hosts are super rude. Walked and and they just stare at you. We walked out without them saying thank you or good night. I will not be coming back to this location. Brea location have much nicer employees. Makes your dinning experience enjoyable.Special Features:
- 21st Birthday CelebrationlovefoodDined on 7/8/2014Had a private room for party of 15 with large lazy susan in middle. Was excellent for our big group. Service was very good and everyone had a great time! The only thing I can say is we over ordered for our party.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Very disappointingJanelleDined on 6/28/2014We made a reservation and were seated right quickly, then everything went downhill. We ordered drinks and waited over ten minutes, with the server stopping by once to say she was on her way to get them. We placed our order, which included an appetizer and two entries. We waited, and waited, and finally received our appetizer, and our entries. It's annoying when you don't have time to enjoy the appetizer, or if you do, then your entrée gets cold . Also, the entries were so salty we hardly ate any. Our server never stopped by to check on us. A bus boy noticed we were done and boxed our food, not our server. When the server picked up our check to run our card it was almost 15 minutes before we received it back for signature.

- OverallOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/15/2014Everything was very good for my father to have me his son, grand daughter and great grand kids together for Fathers Day. My suggestion for Bucca di Beppo that when you see that you have elderly customers do not seat them next to large parties that are going to be very load due to size or age difference or celebrating a birthday/anniversary or any special event. Also prior to any special day please make sure that your supplies of foods and vegetables are in stock to make your menu correct. Out of broccoli and a few others vegetables by noon was not good.Special Features:

- Great ExperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 6/15/2014My family and I love the Buca in Claremont for our special events (e.g, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc.) because of the fun atmosphere, family style dining, and the amazing food! We love the photos offered! What a great way to remember our special times! The photographers are always so kind, energetic, and never pushy on purchasing them.Special Features:
- Great for date night or familyOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 6/15/2014We have been to this restaurant twice. Once just my husband and I for a date night and another for a family dinner night. Both times it was the perfect environment for the occasions.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great Place for Special OccasionshappydinersDined on 6/15/2014Making a reservation is a breeze. Once we arrived, we were seated within minutes. Walk-ins had to wait at least one hour or more. Thank you Open Table.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- downhillSheilaLDined on 6/1/2014I used to LOVE dining at Buca--with small and large groups. The food was great, the portions were plentiful, and I always left feeling that I got a GREAT bargain with fabulous service and fun ambiance. Over the past few years, the quality has really degraded. I order the same three items at each visit: Caesar Salad, Fried Calamari appetizer, Linguine Frutti di Mare, water with a slice of lemon. At my recent visit, the Caesar Salad had only large chunks of the bitter yellow stems of the romaine lettuce... there were no leafy green parts. The entire salad was soggy–including the croutons. The Calamari appetizer was over-fried and soggy as well. The Linguine was a huge disappointment--watery and tasteless, and I never received my lemon slice.
- Dry Ballsfaxs17331Dined on 5/31/2014Prices are pretty high for the quality of food. Meatballs were dry and not enough marinara for about $6 for one. I prefer vince's over this place.
- Graduation Party2014gradDined on 5/30/2014Loved this place for a family gathering! We had a blast and took a few pictures. They allowed us to open our own bottle of wine for the special occasion which was awesome! It went perfect with the lasagna and salad, which by the way, was also AWE-some! Recommend it for the fun and family crowd.Special Features:

- Food and FunFoodFergsDined on 5/28/2014Buca di Beppo is great for a large party celebrating as we were. We were able to use the Pope's Table which made our celebration even better! The food was fantastic and we had so much of it. Service was a bit slow at times, but we are chalking it up to the four other large graduation parties that were there at the same time. We loved that we were able to download a coupon from our phones to help with the bill. Join their club! But you can even find coupons in the paper. It helped with a party of 14.Special Features:
- mjrcgDined on 5/27/2014The late, 9:00, reservation was made to follow a graduation...for 12 people. It was evident that the restaurant was not prepared for us. We had a considerable wait to be seated, and a long wait to place our order. To expedite the order I had written out exactly what we were ordering and gave it to the waiter. The waiter was pleasant, but obviously occupied somewhere else in the restaurant. There was a long wait for the food, which was only so so. In all, it was a long and not very pleasant experience.
- Buca on Memorial Daydutsfvorites1Dined on 5/25/2014We go to Buca regulary and we always had a good time. Food is always good, price is a little bit on the high side but its worth it for the ambiance or the vibe depending on where you're seated. Know what you're ordering because portions are big and meant to be shared.Special Features:
