    The perfect place for a sat night family dinner, amazing service from the freindly staff! yeah its a bit loud but we have little kids so its perfect for us, we don't have to worry if they get a bit rambunctious. The food was good, tons of flavor and portions plus the kids loved the spaghetti and meatballs, can't go wrong. Try the Mussels Marinara, so good!

    We selected the Redondo Beach, ca location since the birthday girl wanted very casual and a place that took reservations. The dishes are served style. NOTE: FAMILY SIZE PORTIONS so order the small size on everything unless you have more then 6 people or 4 big eaters. The food was ok. Parking at this location is pretty much VALET unless you have early reservations and can find parking away from the strip mall.

    I recently came here for a birthday celebration, and it was not what I was used to with Bucca. I made a reservation and they did not have it when we got there. When they finally sat us, 20 minutes after my reservation, they sat us at a table made for 4 when we had 6. With several requests, we were finally moved to a bigger table. The waiter took a partial drink order and the first drink did not show up for about 15 minutes. Most of our food arrived before my drink arrived. The waiter did not stop by too many times to check in. When it was time for the birthday song, we were brought the candle holder, with such small candles on it, while every one else had these huge candles. This may all seem petty, but its not. Not a great experience.

    We found hair in our food! the staff was rude about it. We asked to speak to the manager and he was also rude, and was unprofessional about it. He never apologized for what happened never offered to replace the food. Worst customer service ever! The staff was so rude we ended up leaving without eating. They ruined my husband's birthday! it was the worst experience! How embarrassing we had a party of 10.

    The food was good as always and the portions for sharing are big (even the small size). Our waiter was good but the food coming out of the kitchen was a little slow but the taste made up for the wait. The Bruschetta is very good though I wished they served it with Balsamic. We had a great time so I really can't complain too much. I keep going back so that says something.

    I always go to Buca Di Beppo located in Redondo because it's the closest one and also because they have great Italian food. The last time I went with my wife the waitress didn't accept the coupon I have which was $20 off. I already ordred a large Entrée and a Pizza + salad.

    Made reservation for 7 people and showed up the restaurant and they tried to seat us at two separate tables. I blame both the restaurant and open table. They didn't have any other tables to accommodate our party. Finally, the manager said he could seat us if we would be gone within an hour. What a joke, both open table and bucca.

    Excellent server. Great food. Love the Redondo Beach location. One little snag, manager (Mike) needs to be more social and friendly. I had a little issue and he seemed like it was an inconvenience for him! Wish he had better People skills.Manager's are there to make your experience a pleasure. Other than that Wounderful celebration with family and friends.

    I like the restaurant but the parking situation makes me rethink my decision to have the family go there for Fathers Day. I spent 375 dollars on diner and was very upset that I had to pay for parking on three vehicles. I feel Buca is showing their greedy side by charging their customers a parking fee.

    Buca is a great place for celebrating special occasions with a group. We were a party of 8 celebrating a birthday. The restaurant was completely packed with graduation parties also. Our waiter was helpful by letting us know when we should place our orders so we wouldn't get stuck waiting forever behind a party of 140!!! I was impressed that our waiter was able to be efficient and courteous with all the commotion around!

    The service that I received over the phone while making reservations was great. They were very friendly and accommodating. On the day of our reservation I had to change the time for one hour later. The hostess that I spoke to said it was fine, and that it worked out better. Our reservation was at 8:45pm, but we didn't get seated until 9:20-9:30pm. That part was the most disappointing, because obviously that's a late night dinner especially when you have kids. The "manager" also saw my note right before we were going to be seated that I didn't want to be seated next to the kitchen and of course our table was "right next to the kitchen". At that point we just wanted to be seated.

    The food was made just as orders. I forgot the name of the salad but it comes with walnuts. I must say it is up there with the best salads I have ever had. Manicotti was also good. When I asked for a sangria the waiter asked for white or red. I told him I have never had a white sangria. He brought me a sample of each. Good thing too because I like the red one but the white is a new favorite.

    We always go to buca's for birthdays and special occasions. The food is always awesome. The service is almost always spot on, upbeat and fun. This visit was an exception to the rule. The server seemed disinterested and distracted. The food came out with big gaps in between. She seemed annoyed that we consumed so much water, then it took forever to bring out the cakes we had brought . I would understand if it was busy, but it wasn't. In fact, it was the most empty I have ever seen this restaurant. She was so in attentive that even though I placed the order for the group, she put the check down by the birthday boy, at the other end of the table-I believe she saw me go get the check, I paid,yet she brought the receipt back to my son.

Manager came over to check on us immediately, refilling drinks without asking, clearing of used plates soon as we finished. When the bill came there was no service charge which is the norm with large parties. Overall great service!

    Usually I love coming here for the food, service, and ambience, but this past Easter Sunday was kind of a blah experience for me and my family. I don't eat meat, but two of our party members said that the macaroni rosa was not very tasty and the macaroni and cheese that my toddler had was very bland. There was barely any cheese on it--although we were happy with the generous portion. Service was rather slow from the get-go, even though it was not that crowded when we arrived. I overheard one of the waitresses say that they were short-handed in the kitchen, which was surprising to me considering that it was a holiday and thought they would have planned accordingly. We were also seated in a corner and had very little space to maneuver.

    Food was one of the best meals in a very long time. Music was way too loud, like in a Disco. Baby ceiling lights hurt my eyes really bad. Told waitress we had an anniversary, but she brought no ice cream or anything. So why have her ask if we were celbrating anything. We got all excited that she cared.
