Diner Reviews
  • "I 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."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The waiter should have warned us about the size of dishes. Too expensive for pasta."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "The food and service at Buca is always good. This time it was exceptional. Thank you for making a birthday extra special."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Every 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 . . ."

  • "This 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."

  • "I 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!"

  • "Our 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."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We 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."

  • "Seriously I've liked this place my whole life!!! It has amazing food and great servers that ACTUALLY do there job!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "The 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."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Horrible. 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"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Came 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."

  • "We 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."

  • "Everything 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."

  • "Delicious food! I love to have leftovers....and we did! :)"

  • "My 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."

  • "We 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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Making 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."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I was very upset with the lack of friendliness and our server was horrible. Our party was getting very frustrated with him. He kept forgetting to bring drinks for people and placing orders"

  • "I 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."

  • "Prices 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."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Loved 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."

  • "Buca 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."
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The 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."
    Dined on 5/27/2014
  • "We 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."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Great restaurant with a family environment. I was able to reserve a dinner time before I got there, and food thing I did. The staff was awesome and friendly. I will definitely be going back. Also the small portion may feed more than two, hahaha."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "The interior decor,aside from the great collection of pictures, was a let down, somewhat dark, dusty and somewhat cheesy with the plastic plants. Our dish was short on the amount of sausage and we spoke about it with the manager who apologized and provided us with a little extra sausage to take home."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I really enjoy the Claremont location. Have been there a number of times, food always very good and service is attentive without being intrusive. Everyone friendly and professional. Have no hesitation recommending. "

  • "Spectacular food with portions to satisfy the hungriest of appetites as well as being scrumptious! I joined their online club and got a free "small" baked ziti that was valued at $18 and the pasta was cooked to perfection and the sauce was delicious! They have super nice waiters/waitresses who clearly enjoy being courteous and friendly; they even packed the food for us (for my boyfriend and I). Definitely a place for at least two people or more with such large portions even for a "small". I suggest making reservations, whether it's via phone or online, just so you know for sure that you'll be getting a table as soon as possible rather than risking a huge line. This works even if you decide to go here an hour and a half before you get there."
