I love the decor! We already
I love the decor! We already enjoy Buca, and when you add in a super promotion ($5 per person for lasagna!), we simply had to go there!
My wife & I shared 3 different varieties of lasagna (veggie, chicken and traditional), each of which was very good.
The service, as always, was outstanding.

We've been to Buca many times.
We've been to Buca many times. Food is served family-style, so be really hungry or go with a group. Lots of menu items to choose from, and for us, the food has always been delicious!! Great staff too. We'll be back!

Buca was, well, Buca in this
Buca was, well, Buca in this trip. They've changed their menu significantly since the last time we were there -- it seems as though the Buca Singles didn't make it very well. Seriously speaking, the only problem that I have with Buca is that they don't make it easy for just a couple to go for dinner when one is vegetarian and one isn't. We ended up with two Buca Small-size entrees and took a LOT of leftovers. The ambiance is usually very loud, so don't plan on having a nice intimate meal there. It IS family-style Italian, with lots of loud parties, lots of food, lots of drink, and lots of good times.

Great food and great service.
Great food and great service. We went on a Friday night and there were lot's of families with little kids. So it was very loud. I had to change the reservations two times and they were very accommodating. They serve family style and give you plenty of food.

We had the best service ever!
We go out about twice a week, and services is not always great. But at Buca di Beppo on Mothers day was the best service I have ever seen in years. Our waiter was the best!. She was very friendly and helpful.
I booked the reservations about 4 days in advance, and we were able to have a table right when we got there!! Yes, there were people waiting for tables too. It pays to make reservations in advance!!

Our server was helpful and friendly. She laughed at my brother's lame jokes.

It was a great experience I had for a company lunch. Our waiter was kind, attentive and always willing to help if we needed anything. I had a great overall experience.

I had never been, but was pleasantly surprised by the food and mostly by the decor. Loved all of the Italian touches....much of it familiar. From black and white photos of Sophia Loren to statuettes of cherubs....very fun! I will definitely be back. Oh! It was my brothers birthday and they had him blow out a candle....no dessert with it. A little strange really. I guess if we had ordered dessert they would have brought that....and to not that we were hungry.....but something little would be cute. Biscotti? LOL

Waiter was Cody ... Can't think of a complaint. Everything was perfect.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Visited on 7/31/13, food was great, but our service was even better. Eric our server, total class and very professional. Upbeat and a great conversationalist. He was training some and that guy was good as well (Sorry, I forgot his name). Either way, makes a person want to come and request Eric or his trainee.
Good job to you both.
P.S.- Food was good.

We were seven people celebrating
We were seven people celebrating exciting life events. Service was excellent, from the greeting at the door, to our very helpful server and throughout the meal and beyond. Portions are large and served family style, so ordering a variety of the small portions, we each had a good serving of salad, pastas (many different types with several different proteins each with it's own sauce, and shared the brownie sundae (definitely more than enough for seven people). We enjoyed the meal and we certainly enjoyed sharing a relaxing time with friends and family.

Good as Always
Buca Bi Beppo , Campbell location is the best in my view among their Bay area locations.
Staff is very friendly and food is always great

We typically celebrate all special occasions at Buca. This time, it was with ourselves & family. We had a good table in the bar area which was quieter than other sections of the restaurant based on our experiences.
We had a wonderful waiter who joked with us and made it more fun.
The staff came out with the candelabra and sang happy birthday which was fun.
We love buca!

Our service was good, the food was very plentyful. we were there before it got crowded. Therefore the evening was enjoyable for the two of us.

The online booking is a great
The online booking is a great idea. But the section were you can put your requests is a bit pointless if no one reads them. We had a fantastic time at the restaurant, but when we got there no one new it was my sisters birthday and we didn't have a high chair when we got to the table, even though I'd asked for one in the special requests section.

Generous portions, good eating
Entrees served family-style, e.g., "S (small)" serving on platter easily feeds 2 adults; sides need to be ordered separately. Eggplant parmesan is a favorite of ours; amount of cheese is medium-light, and the tomato sauce tends to the fresh-cut, and lighter/brighter (meatless?) versus the thicker, cooked-down style. Also tried the chicken marsala which was sweeter than our preference, but you may still enjoy it.
Some, e.g., oldster like ourselves, might consider the ambiance too loud for comfortable conversation and we went early evening on a weeknight. But it has a very comfortable and casual atmosphere, and the staff is friendly and welcoming. Special (fun) dining locations to ask about are 'at the bar' and 'in the kitchen'.

After our group spent a fair amount of money I was informed that my coupon was not good...The PR move should have been...the coupon is not good but we will not charge you for your dessert. The coupon did its job by bringing us into the restaurant.

Buca di Beppo - Campbell
Quite satisfied. Only downside was the noise level.

Fun Location for a Birthday
I was taken to the Campbell Buca di Beppo for my birthday and just loved it. It's a fun restaurant with delicious food. The "large" salad, with shrimp added, was fantastic. "Large" turned out to be a real understatement. It was ENORMOUS. Three of us couldn't come close to finishing it, and it's all we ordered! I had a couple more huge meals from the leftovers. It was full of goodies, including a variety of olives, pepperoncini and cheeses, along with super fresh, crisp veggies, and the added shrimp was perfect, making it extra rich and special. The dressing was to die for. On previous visits I've LOVED their luscious pastas and pizzas. They make delicious, fresh, homemade, made-to-order meals that we always love. Enjoy!

This is by far my favorite place to eat the food is incredible and the people are really nice. Only thing I wish they had was a small single serving of salad or soup. I would like to have salad with my meal but not everyone wants one with me and it's hard to take salad home with you. Other then that this place rocks!

Great atmosphere for a large group
We celebrated my son's sweet 16 with a large group of his friends. They all enjoyed the food and the setting.

Something for Everyone
A friend and I and her two children dined there recently and what I loved was that their kids menu had plenty of choices and the portions were more than fair for the price. The wait staff was attentive and the food very flavorful. Great for groups since food is served family style. We had plenty of leftovers.

Fun place for a large party
We had 10 girls at a table for a 13th Birthday party. The service was very good and they handle large crowds w/o a hitch. The party loved every dish they ordered- and they had A LOT of fun. Highly recommend.

Buca has classic Italian food and lots of it. Great for connecting with your kids in a fun atmosphere when they're back from school.
