Family and kid friendly
I love Bucca in Encino. It is a great neighborhood place for families and large group celebrations. The food is good and the staff is courteous and friendly.

We found the bruschetta to be delicious! It was really really good. The atmosphere was intimate, where my friends and I didn't have to yell at each other. The colossal dessert topped it off. It was huge! We liked the cubed shaped brownies and of course the ice cream! Overall good experience, would definitely go back.

We had a great time. The food was good. Only complaint - a little too pricy. When you have 7 healthy eaters, it ended up costing over $300 with the tip. Not something we'll do often. Would rather come more often, but can't afford it.

Plenty of food to share
Took the family for Father's Day lunch. A great location for eating hearty and talking with family. Love the garlic bread with garlic slices! Great food.

Great service, great food
One of things that is most important me other than the food, is great service. We received them both. The manager came by twice just to inquire how we were doing and if there was anything she could do for us. Our server was very attentive, we never had to ask to refill our glasses. He also made recommendations. The pace at which our meal was served was perfect. And lastly, the food tasted great which says a lot because we are Italians and very critical of eating Italian food outside of our home. I would definitely recommend this establishment and intend to dine in again.

Great for birthday celebrations
We always have a great time at Buca di Beppo because the atmosphere is wonderful for a small party (2-4) and great for a whole roomful (10+). The menu is varied and we love Family Style servings. The staff is always welcoming and takes very good care of all.

Friendly family restaurant
Great food, service, and most importantly, a family restaurant which is welcoming to kids. My little one is 15 months old, active, and likes to "practice" her speaking skills and our server was very friendly with her and acknowledged her.

Fun for All
We really enjoy going to Buca for family parties. The food is always excellent, the atmosphere congenial and we usually have
a great server to help us with the wonderful menu. Being Italian we feel very much at home at Buca. The grandchildren, now mostly grown, look forward to our getting together at Buca because it's relaxing and a lot of fun.

Fantastic Food...Friendly Staff!
Eating at Buca di Beppo is always a fun experience. It's like going to a relative's home for a family meal. I love the decor, the music, and, of course, the food. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Since I'm Italian, I'm kind of selective about Italian food and I'm always satisfied with any meal I've had there. All in all I had a great time!

Our go-to Birthday spot
It's always fun to celebrate a birthday at Buca di Beppo. The food never dissapoints although the service can be hit or miss. I always have a good time and leave feeling like a stuffed meatball. But I was quite sad to hear that they no longer make the spicy oil.

B-day dinner for Three
I had a coupon for Buca and we went on my hubby's 60th B-day. It was very nice--only criticism is that You sing the Italian song Funiculli Funiculla and the waiter really could not sing--I sang with LA Opera chorus and my husband plays with their orchestra--a few of those words don't fit--revise the son!!--also--why not a free dessert for a big B-day sans candelabra--thanks!

Fun for parties
Service was great!!
Food was tasty,
However the prosciutto stuffed chicken
Was a little on the cold side.
All in all good experience.,

It all worked out great
With a fairly last minute reservation... We were acomodated well, had a great time

Buca has the best pizza hands down!!!! They import their cheese from Italy, the crust is thin & good- & it's a lot easier than getting a table @mozza!! (Besides being a much better value!!) We only come for the Margherita pizza- so my review is limited to that menu item. But if that's what you are craving- definitely give it a try!!

Buca is a great late afternoon
Buca is a great late afternoon place to eat. We love the apple gorganzola salad. The noise level can be loud at times so we ask to sit in the bar area where it is usually quieter. The evenings are busy and can get crowded as there is a lot of food for a reasonable price. Watch for coupons!

Lobe the private room
We went for Thanksgiving. I was happy that we received a private room as requested. Good service ! Food was awesome
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
My sister and I ate here for Thanksgiving this year. It was wonderful. I especially enjoyed our waiter because he was absolutely excellent. I think his name was Stephen. Young tall white guy. Anyway, don't ever think a waiter cannot make a dfference in a dining experience. He was plesant, always checked on us and brought us whatever we wanted. Also, it seemed like all the staff was happy to be there and they were all very very nice,. Even the kitchen staff said hi to us. But the food came fast, it was delicious and there was plenty for the both of us. I ordered the wrong bread my sister wanted the mozzerello cheese bread but it was something new and different. Anyway, I want to come back. Our Thanksgiving was perfect.
