Diner Reviews
  • "We love dinning at Buca... the food is great! Our Families and friends love it too...."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "I always take my family members out to dinner for their birthdays, and Buca is always top of the list. One of our favorite places to go, I love the family style dining, the food is excellent, and the wait staff has always been great. We went this last time for my granddaughter's 20th birthday. We had the best time, and of course, the best food. Our server was extremely attentive and helpful. We love the ambience of the restaurant, the pictures are great and so is the music. I always tell my friends to go to Buca for dinner, it is the best. Being Italian myself, it fits the bill so many ways. The food is real Italian and really good."

  • "I had a reservation for six people. We were seated in a booth was shocked because we were tight and uncomfortable. Our waiter was a bit rude we asked to be seated somewhere bigger,we then moved and were left with out a waiter and had to constantly ask different serves for anything. Our first server now and then stopped by to ask if we were fine. The food was to die for! Overall I had an alright experience could have been better."

  • "We enjoy the family style food servings at Buca di Beppo. It allowed each member of our party to serve themselves as much or little as they wanted. We even had leftovers for next day. Buca di Beppo is an excellent choice for groups!"

  • "I used to enjoyed Bucca di Beppo food. I'm not sure if it's just this time but...... Service was really nice, staff were really attentive but what happened with the food? we order spaghetti with meat balls and one more pasta dish. spaghetti was blend and the other pasta dish were so dry and no taste that we didn't care asking for extra sauce. I was quite disappointed. and to top it off a loud family were seated next to us and we could hardly hear our own voices."

  • "We went to the Buca Di Beppo in Pasadena this weekend for my sister's 40th Birthday. The food and the service were great, the waiter was friendly and there wasn't a single thing that we tried that wasn't good (the pizza arribiata is excellent). Downsides: cost and parking. It's pretty pricy. We ordered the "small" size of the dishes that we tried, and even with that the price was pretty high. We also had drinks which added to the cost a little bit. Parking in Oldtown Pasadena can be hit or miss. We went on a Sunday afternoon, and the two public parking lots closest to the restaurant were full. We ended up parking a couple of blocks away at a more expensive parking lot. Your mileage may vary, but you should expect to pay $5-$10 for parking."

  • "I took a party of nine people here for my son's birthday, 2 teens, 1 child, and 6 adults. We had a lively party and a lot of fun. We were not hurried, and enjoyed ourselves fully. The food was great, hot when it was served, and plentiful. About three hours dinner and pre dinner drinks total..."

  • "Mind you that we scheduled our dinner for a Tue night, but it was the perfect fit for our large party. We initially made the online reservation 5 days ahead online at 2am - and that was easy. But it got easier as they placed in the cutest niche corner for our party of 13 with last minute guests added to the table. So it was intimate and cozy to be in their back area which they were able to reserve for us. The food was awesome, served promptly and large enough portions for everyone to take home something. The servers were pleasant and kept checking on us. So overall it was the perfect dining experience that made the celebration a lot more personal."

  • "I celebrated my valintines day here and it was great. We had a quiet and romantic dinner. The service was fast. The food was great and I will have plenty of more dates here"
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "The food (when we received it) was great as always. However, it was apparent from the start that our waiter was not in the mindset to work this day. The service lacked the certain flair I have to expect from Buca, from having to ask for "house bread" to having to ask for butter. Its the simple things that put a damper on the visit, taking 15 minutes for a dessert was the final straw. I explained to the manager the poor received and observed when our same waiter was called over by another patron, rolling ones eye as you turn away solidified his poor demeanor."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Our experience was extremely positive. Our group included 6 women who have been friends since graduating college in 1976. We regularly get together, every 3 to 4 months just to stay in touch and support each other as life happens. Thank you for helping to make our gathering comfortable and very inexpensive!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "The food was exceptional and service was great. Our unexpected treat was being asked if we wanted to sit at the kitchen table. My husband has always wanted to do this in a restaurant and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We're here visiting our grandchildren and they thought it was great also. I told my husband the best dish, of the 4 we ordered, was the one I was eating at that particular time. I really could not pick a favorite, they were all good. We started with Calamari & Mussels Bianco. Then had the 1893 & Caesar Salads, with Short Ribs, Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken, Penne San Remo, and Shrimp Fra Diavolo for Entrees. We couldn't miss dessert so we ordered the Cannoli to take home."

  • "We came to this restaurant from time to time for over 10yrs for different occasions, either to celebrate birthdays, graduations, group meetings. Every time when there is a big group gathering, we think of Buca. However, this time we only went there in four, just missing the Mixed Green Salad. Initially we were brought to a table in a very larger dining room, after I request to change to a smaller room so that we can have a better conversation, the manager and the server happily open the closed small section without any questions. How sweet is that. We enjoy the rest of the meal and services very much."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "I did not like the service here at all. I had to send by my pasta twice because it was not cooked all the way. It was super hard. Also I had to ask 3 times for a refill and ask for plates to serve our pasta. This was a horrible way to spend my valentines day with my husband and daughter. So disappointed."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was exquisite, great atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. Definitely the perfect place to go celebrate or to take a date. Its a little slice of Italy in La . The lasagna and the margherita pizza were delicious. The portions are very generous and ingredients taste as if they were hand picked from mother Italy's bountiful gardens ."

  • "Celebrated my birthday and the service was very slow and I had a group of 6 people. It could have been a busy night but none the less my celebration did not feel special and the waiter was not attentive to my party."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Came here with my co-worker for a hearty meal and got just what I hoped for! It's great for groups, so I shared a dish, which also cuts back the funds in my pocket :) I love the house bread. I just wish the waiters delivered it sooner and in larger portions as they do the actual dishes. Also the calamari was delish! Definitely wouldn't mind returning again in the future."

  • "Great place to be to celebrate an occasion. The service was excellent and the food always yummy. Great portions to share with family or friends. We had reservations at 7:45 pm through open table, but didn't get sit down until about 8:20, when asked the ETA of our table I was told I was number #2 on wait list .... So does that mean that opentable reservations are not the same as calling the restaurant for reservations?"

  • "We were seated in a very tight space and when we talked to the manager he quickly made accommodations. They offered several items but didn't push on them. Had a wonderful time and left offers"

  • "The dinner was a surprise and the hostess walked us to the table and did not mention the surprise even the staff knew. My husband was very surprise."

  • "The wait for a table for four was greater than half hour with a reservation. This is a local favorite, but the wait was excessive when a reservation was made twenty four hours ahead. The food was fresh and satisfying, and the servers were attentive and friendly. I will take family and friends back, but will not bother with making a reservation because the wait will remain excessive."

  • "Our "hostess" when we came in was named Sarah. We had a reservation for 20 people at 5 p.m. for a 17th birthday party for our daughter. Sarah was NOT friendly at all; actually her attitude was rather cold and indifferent. We had 2 birthday cakes which were promptly taken to the kitchen to be served later. I had 3 small flower arrangements for the table and 2 helium balloons I wanted to tie on a chair back. We were not allowed to place the flowers or the balloons before we were seated even though I explained that it was a PARTY we were there for."

  • "We dine often at Buca di Beppo in Pasadena. We usually have excellent service. Specifically, the waiter who attended us the last two visits was excellent. I am sorry to say I can not say the same about our visit on January 18, 2014. Our waiter was practically absent the whole time, we had to flag down other waiters to inquire about our food. Our waiter did not check in with us and we ended with a different waiter by the end of our visit although we could still see our initial waiter walking around the restaurant. Fortunately, the food was excellent as always. I'm hoping we do not get his waiter again. If so, he definitely needs more customer service training."

  • "Disappointed that we had to wait 40 minutes, even with a reservation. 8:15dinner, 10:15 movie tickets. Missed the movie (arclight) and did not get to enjoy the birthday dessert. The table was too small for our group of 12 and other parties were crammed into the same room. Sign said "seats 28" - actually 42 people in the small room. Not the usual experience at Buca this time around."
