Diner Reviews
  • "Delicious food!!! Great ambiance!!! Quick service!!! We look forward to dining here again!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."

  • "We really enjoyed our previous experience at Buca di Peppo in Washington DC and were excited to dine at this location. We made a 9:30 pm reservation (the lastest was 10 pm). When we arrived at 9:30 pm, we were rushed into ordering bc "the kitchen closes at 10 pm." I don't know how when that's the latest reservation time accepted. Needless to say, our waitress was most interested in getting us out the door. The food was very good, but the customer experience was poor."

  • "Even though it was Mother's Day, our server worked very hard to be attentive which was a challenge since we were a large party. Food overall is good. Unfortunately the lasagna was not as tasty as I've had it here in the past - not enough sauce I think and the noodles were very slushy. All other dishes we ordered were exceptional including the calamari, pizza, and spicy chicken rigatoni. We did not like the specialty cheese bread (I can't remember the name) which basically tasted like soggy bread with alfredo sauce on it. It was horribly overpriced for what you got (over $17 for a large!). We always like Bucca. This experience will just help us to refine our ordering choices in the future. We will come back."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food here is always pretty good. However, there are a ton of Italian restaurants that offer fare on par with Bucca for 1/2 the price. You choose Bucca for the atmosphere and service. We waited until 10pm to eat, hoping it would be quieter than Bucca normally is, as more than once we've had our meal ruined by obnoxious large parties who thin "reservation for 8" = renting out the restaurant. This time it was the 3 year old with the parents who despite the constant screaming and crying couldn't figure out it was past this poor child's bed time. When they ordered dessert I wondered if maybe they were deaf? Also, service was poor. Waitress was aloof, and never refilled drinks. Just can't justify $75 for an experience that's not enjoyable."

  • "I had a party of 28, the general manager was suppose to be in charge, he had bad attitude, if we could find him. The server could not handle a party of this size, never refilled water, never asked anyone if they would like coffee. She was personally rude to me each time I spoke with her. Took 45 min of our time for payment, which interfered in our visiting time. After all we only had two hours and had to be out of there. Once they had our credit cards they never came back to box up our food, I finally had to ask someone else to do it. She had no idea of the details that were made after 3 weeks of planning this event. We were over charged for our contracted amount of money and know seems to be able to explain."

  • "One of the iconic spots with choice locations throughout the county. The Claremont location provides a hospitable environment fit for lunch for 2, or a large group of 20! (call or reserve online for arrangements) They serve family size portions and perfect for sharing. Its more than good food, its an experience. My kids enjoyed the food! We had the large spaghetti and meatballs which fed us all, as well as the small Marguerite pizza...yummy! "

  • "We had a group of nine people going before a ballet and it was really nice to make reservations online! From when we first got there until the end it was wonderful! It was fun to share meals which made it not too much per person! We had attentive waitresses and waiters. The only problem was a pizza that was ordered came out later then the other food but it was easily forgotten when the manager said we could have dessert on the house! The big brownie sundae was enough for the whole table to enjoy! The food was also delicious and would definitely recommend!"

  • "After waiting at our table for 15 minutes for a server, we flagged down another server to see if he could find our waiter. He offered to take our drink orders and went to check. He found out our waiter was not feeling well and just left for the night without telling anyone. We had not picked a great night to come since it turned out to be Prom night. All in all, however, even with the chaos, the food was great and out fill in waiter, Nick was wonderful. Nick saved our dinner!"

  • "This is the first time we went for Easter and the staff and services were on.point! There were many large groups, and the servers were still able to be attentive to us with 2very small cchildren. Our glasses stayed full, extra or empty plates were whisked away, all with a small. There were several families, including ours with excited and yappy children, but in the spirit of family, no one seemed phased and a wonderful time was had! "
