Buca di Beppo - San Diego
After a long day with 2 smallAfter a long day with 2 small kids at seaworld, Buca was the perfect place to have dinner before our train ride back up to LA.
Food was great, service was wonderful !6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMy WaitressI cannot remember if her name was Rana or Lana, but she was absolutely outstanding!!!! I appreciated her easy going personality and friendly demeanor. Thank you for singing to my mother as well for her birthday! Will be returning soon.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day Lunch 2013as we sat down to eat, we thought of the dreaded Mother's Day 2012, where we were miserable at another establishment who had a pre-fixe menu of NADA. so we held our breaths until Erik brough the menus and we were happy campers to find the selection of food to be various. Between the group we had the lasagna, stuffed sheels and stuffed prosciutto chicken. Everything was great, from the host to the staff of the restaurant. The coolest part was being walked through the kitchen which the do with all their guests so we can see what is happening in the background. Erik was a great server. he kept the glasses filled and checked on us every chance he got. We will definetely be coming back again...maybe for Father's Day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved itThe love the feel of the restaurant. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. I was however disappointed that you no longer serve the olive oil with the chili in it. That had such a good flavor. We loved to put in on our pasta and the Margarita pizza. Please, please bring it back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian Fare...Buca never disappoints. Their food is good, their service is good and if you don't get enough to eat, you're doing something wrong! Their food is served "family style" which translates to huge servings. It's a great place to go with a big group or for a family gathering. Order a salad, some garlic bread and a couple of entrees and you'll all get stuffed. We've visited Buca several times for family birthdays and the servers have always been very helpful with serving cake brought we brought with us. They run an efficient operation at Buca.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMolto Benne!!!!the food was prepared as i requested and the service was fantastic5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of town visitorCame in from Phoenix to visit family and made dinner reservations as a surprise.

Also, everyone from the greeters to our server (sorry I cannot remember his name) were very kind and helpful. The food was amazing (as far as taste and presentation) and it was more than enough. They accommodated our special occasion.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis chain continues to refineThis chain continues to refine its brand. New, less daunting menues (and yes, a bit pricier), but the decor is still a gaudy time-capsule and the Italian comfort food continues to star.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMichael Garcia, the manager,Michael Garcia, the manager, has done a great job improving on what Buca already does well. We hadn't been there in awhile, and were pleasantly surprised by the changes. Keep up the great work!2/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
