Buca di Beppo - Claremont
Charge errorTe food was great as well as the overall service. My only gripe was that we went for Father's Day, I had a coupon for a free Father's Day cannoli ....ended up being charged for it because our server (who was great besides this snafoo) ordered a regular size cannoli instead of what (as he explained) should have been mini cannoli which was the Father's Day promo. It was only 4.99 we paid but truthfully the only reason it was ordered at all was because It was supposed to be free. Since it was not an error on our part I felt we shouldn't have been asked to pay for it. Fyi When ordering I said that I had a coupon for free Father's Day cannoli so it's not as if I ordered and then didn't present the coupon until check was received.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily Fun!Yummy food to share and converse and just let your personality be dynamic!6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for CelebrationsMy family was celebrating both Father's Day and a graduation and this was the perfect place.

The food and the atmosphere were great, but my kids were disappointed that they were out of syrup for iced tea and italian soda. They were also out of meatballs but after we had already placed our order, we were told that they had some. Overall, it is a great place to eat with family and friends. The portions are big. We had a fantastic time!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food Prompt ServiceMade reservations for a party of 8 for a Mother's Day lunch. Waited just a few minutes to be seated, greeted promptly by server, drink and food orders were delivered promptly, food was great as usual. A little noisy but a busy day for them so lot of folks in the place. Good chain restaurant prices, are on the high side but certainly lots of food5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeCouldnt have had a better time here. Some customer called the lady at the front rude but the worker was super polite so that rude statement came out of nowhere. Food was great and wait time was short!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day topperI took my family to Buca because my Italian wife is VERY picky about her Italian food. FANTASTIC ON EVERYTHING!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMom's DayWe were seated promptly and had a corner booth... a first!
Chandler our server, was cordial and happy to answer menu questions and offered suggestions.
Our meal was served quickly, hot and fresh. Since it was Mother's Day, the kitchen was making lots of salads and this slowed our Italian Cream Cake dessert... but, were we surprised when told there'd be no charge due to the delay.
We declined for two reasons; You were very busy, we love Buca di Beppo!
So, thanks again for wonderful staff, good food and the thoughtfulness!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReturning freindMy family and I have been here before and we loved it.

Love the food and ambiance. Best part, very kid friendly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellant foodBucca di Beppo in Claremont, CA. is an excellant place to eat and relax. The astmosphere and service is wonderful. Everything I ordered was so so good. I really enjoyed the family style of serving and could enjoy all the different italian foods. This restaurant is great for lunch or dinner. It is relaxing because you don't feel rushed to eat and get out even though they are very busy. The restaurant also takes reservations on Holidays, which was perfect for our large group.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day success!After trying to get reservations at "O.G" and being told they were not accepting and the wait was going to be an hour, I went on-line to find another Italian restaurant to celebrate Mother's Day with my family and my 84 year old Mother. Found Buca di Beppo and they were accepting reservations right on-line and had a table for the time we wanted on Saturday!
We were pleased with the fast service, the huge portions and the "homey" ambiance of the restaurant. The only "minus" I can state is that we were seated close to the bar and had the noise of the blender interrupting our conversation several times.
You prices are reasonable, the food very tasty and we left with "meals to go" because the portions are so generous! Thanks for the memory!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Spot for Food and ConversationWe had such a fun time. Good family restaurant, but also a good date spot. Waitress, Dina, was wonderful, very pleasant and engaging. Food was wonderful and there was something for everyone. We will be back for more food and fun soon .4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFun night out with good friendsThe food was very good as always. Service was slow.
