Bring the gang, the family, your co-workers...heck you can even go on a date here and not go wrong....the servers are exceptional, the food is impeccable and the environment is exactly what you would expect from a restaurant that takes the food seriously and your table is treated like family.

    Everything was good. Our server was very nice and attentive. The only problem I had was that I had mentioned on my reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and nobody acknowledge it. Also we got there kind of late so it seemed that the host was in a rush. Besides that everything was great. The food is always so delicious and the servers are great!

    An unusual setting. Everything is served family style. Such a great ambience, pictures all over the place. Service was great once we figured out how to order. We still did not get it exactly right, but certainly will the next time. Our party of five will definitely be back and will probably bring other friends. Food was truly Italian.

    Our dinner was a great evening, we chose to go to Buca Di Beppo on Homecoming night which made it a challenge as it was a busy but it was also a delight as we got to see everyone all dressed up. The food was fabulous as always and our server was attentive even with all the people that night. The only improvement is that we had some large people in our party and the put us at a little table that we did not fit on so we had to move people to the ends of the table. Other than that, a great evening!

    I always go to buca for special occasions with friends. We always go all-out and get salad,bread, pasta, eggplant parm., and dessert which is cannolis and something else. The food is amazing and I love the food is served family style. I had great service. The only change I would like to see is the vegetarian lasagna added as a full-time menu item. As a vegetarian this would give another great option though I love the penne a la vodka.

    Yesterday was my daughter's birthday, so we celebrated with a couple of friends. The food we ordered was absolutely fabulous (Buca di salad L, Calimari L, Broccoli L, Frutti di Mare L, Spaghetti and Meatballs L). Complaints. Service needs to be improved. Waitress forgot a couple of things and had to be reminded more than once. Drinks weren't refilled very often. Price. $150 for 6 people! Why so tacky? Pictures. Just do the complimentary picture and be up front about the cost of buying. Birthday candle? At least give a scoop of ice cream to the Birthday.

    Dined on 9/14/2014
    We went to celebrate a special occasion and unfortunately the service was poor. The main dish that my family loves, lasagna, was sold out. Our salad and one of the dishes came promptly but the rest of our food took a long time to be ready. In total we were there over two hours partly because our waiter forgot that we were waiting for more food and the other explanation we got was that the kitchen was a mess and it would be a while before our food was ready. We were offered a free desert as an apology, and my husband accepted. Anyway, I will never go back to that location. I've had much better experiences at other locations.

    My family and I went to Bucca di Beppo in Claremont we had reservations and we're seated on time we had a party of 11 . The waiter was very attentive took our order for drinks then gave us a few minutes to order our food . He would come by often to see if we needed anything . The only thing I did not like was that the women's restroom had ran out of toilet paper so I told one of the waiters it was a very busy night but I feel they should have somebody over looking that dept. But other than that the the service and food were amazing . We would definitely return to this restaurant. :)

    The restaurant is open late so we had a 9:15 reservation on a Friday night and it was not overcrowded and noise levels were minimal. For a table of four we shared a small pizza and small pasta and there were still leftovers. Pizza was great, thin crust, and the chicken carbonara pasta was delicioso. Overall a great Friday night eatery

    The 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.

    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 . . .
