Nice place to spend Easter
Nice place to spend Easter Sunday as a family. Non-valet parking is a little difficult to find, so be prepared to have cash to have someone park your car.

Enjoyed the food. A bit disappoint
Enjoyed the food. A bit disappointed that the birthday celebrations are only for those who were able to show their email or proof of email. We had a large group a celebrated 3 birthdays, but, only one of the birthday person was given their treat. It was a disappointment and embarrassing for the others.

I always enjoy the taste of the food. Looking at the decor is interesting. Servers are attentive. With or without reservations, every table is a good one. Groups are especially a good idea since the portions are huge, and they are served family style.

Love this restaurant. I have visited 4 of your restaurants but this is my favorite location. It is close to my home in Torrance and everyone is so friendly and energetic.

Another Awesome Visit to Buca!!
This is our favorite Buca. The food is consistently great and the service is always outstanding. Julian our server was great. Very tentative to our table and was very engaging with our whole family. If you come to Buca in Redondo Beach ask to be seated at Julian's section/tables, he's awesome!!

It was my first time at Buca. But when I told several friends that I was going there they all had great things to say about the service and the food. They were right it was a wonderful experience. I will now make it a regular outing with my family. The food was really good! A++++!

For the most part this visit to Buca was great as usual. But, when I asked for butter to go with the bread, the server said the restaurant was out of butter. It's strange that a any restaurant would allow itself to run out of butter.

Fun restaurant for celebrating
we had a table for 11 (including one child and one infant) and had a great time. It was noisy enough that the kids weren't a problem, but quiet enough that we could all talk easily. The food was great and it was a very enjoyable evening!

A group of 6 of us had dinner here the other night. There were many parties going on at the restaurant . . . it was graduation time! So, it was a bit loud but it didn't stop us from being able to talk with each other. The food was delicious and the service wonderful, although she seemed to show up just as we were in the middle of a story. She couldn't know though. Overall, it was a fantastic evening with great friends and yummy food.

Like the ambiance and the service. The staff is very friendly. It's a bit loud for large groups and with the long tables makes it a bit hard to converse to the entire group. The lasagna is the BEST!!!

waitress of the month
Our Waitress was the star of the night when my party ballooned from seven to twelve she could have had a melt down and very easily turned my son's graduation dinner into a nightmare but she (thinking Stephanie ?? please look up her name) turned a table set for seven into a table for twelve and took everyone's drink order all in a matter of minutes while being very sweet . She did a great job all night and those plates she has to work with are no joke they are as heavy as they come . Maybe all your servers are this professional this was my first visit to your restaurant so I don't know... I just wanted her supervisor to know what a great employee she has .. no i'm not a friend or relative of hers...... Just a new fan

Had relatives visiting from out of town. They highly enjoyed to food, service and experience.

Father's Day at Noon
Had reservations, walked right in and were seated immediately. Excellent food and exceptional service
6/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our waiter was especially helpful, showing us the small vs large bowls when we couldn't decide which to get. I didn't have to ask for a lemonade refill; it magically appeared!
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The staff is great, always kind and friendly. We feel very welcome.

The Best of Italian
This is a great "group" friendly restaurant that accommodates "family style" eating where portions serve anywhere from over 2 to 6 people per entree. Delicious italian variety on entrees and pastas with excellent service!
7/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was very good and warm when served at the table. Our waiter was very alert at all times, we had a party of 6 and everyone's glass was always filled until the end.

First time visit was fun
This was a first time visit for me and 5 others in our 7 person party. Valet parking is $2.50, but I believe folks can park over by the grocery store and walk thru the parking lot to the restaurant. We were seated right away. Food seemed pricey until my daughter, who has been here before, pointed out that "it's family style dining". Several groups there to celebrate birthdays as were we. Restaurant is definitely not romantic, but rather a boisterous place to celebrate. We had some cesar salad, fried calamari, prosciutto stuffed chicken, chicken carbonara, shrimp fra diavolo, macaroni rosa,and of course some cheesy garlic bread. All food tasted great, but no room left to try dessert. Plenty of leftovers to take home. Will eat here again.

Love this place!
Buca is just a fun place to eat. The food and service is always good, and the atmosphere is fun. I never tire of Buca.

Don't do the pitcher
The food was amazing and the service was great. But when a pitcher of beer is more expensive than the meal, I think there's a problem. $23 for a pitcher of Peroni?? Not worth it in the slightest. Do yourself a favor, stick to water and buy a 12 pack of good beer from the store on your way home.

The spaghetti with meat sauce is the best I have tasted in a restaurant.
9/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was perfect! Birthday girl enjoyed the surprise and loved the meal.
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
My son completely enjoyed his birthday celebration with family at Buca di Beppo - the food is always good and the service is great too. Thanks!
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The foods I like the best there are
Their linguine Frutti de Mar is great, better than cioppino, nice and slurppy. Good broth, lingini nice and great selection of seafood that has not been overcooked!
The white cake with raspberry with cream filling is the best, we had gotten tirimisu and this white cake with cream filling, both large portions, and now I wished we had just gotten the white cake x 2, the tirimisu was good but the white cake was the best and left you with a yummy happy feeling inside your mouth.
If you don't like noise go early because the noise grows after 6pm I like it a little quieter so we had 5:30 reservations, if we really wanted it quiet I would have gone for the 5 pm but 5:30 was fine.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a great time. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was nice and the service was wonderful. The waiter Norm was really attentive and made the kids in our group feel at home. I would recommend this place to anybody that wanted to eat great tasting food served in an agreeable atmosphere by a friendly waiter.

Our vist to Buca
We went on a Sunday and took a friend with us. We each order small orders so we could share and we shared and shared and what was left over we shared. Our waitress was outstanding she very attentive and she was just delightful .The food was very good tasteful.

Great place to celebrate a birthday
Thanks for fitting us on such short notice. We had lots of fun & enjoyed the food. It was great. Only thing was that you ran out of lasagna and that was the one item the birthday celebrant requested, we usually order it when we go there!
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
They were great
Our table was too small, but manager Joe and our server Jeff took great care of us. We had a wonderful family dinner!
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very noisy restaurant
The evening we went there where a lot of children under the age of 5. The restaurant was very noisy because parents don't know how to keep their children under control and have them use their "indoor voices" .

Nice family restaurant
We went for Thanksgiving dinner. It was not crowded. Service was good. It was great to have the regular menu as well as the Thanksgiving menu.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were not sure that an Italian place would have a good Thanksgiving menu..but it was excellent and, for the first time, I actually took home the leftovers! Thankfully, our waitress, Alicia, did NOT ask us if we were "still working on that" as is so prevalent these days..I do not consider dining out as "working"! Instead she was most attentive (without overdoing it) and efficient.

giving thanks for buca's
Thanksgiving dinner. i'm from Tucson visiting l.a. to see my son and daughter in law and friends. I wanted to share thanksgiving but not make a mess of a dear friend's kitchen. we've all been to buca's before and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves so it seemed the right answer for dinner especially when my grandson, a navy hospital corpsman in san diego, and his wife were able to join us.
the food was great as always, our waiter charming and helpful, and we left with our own huge 'buca bag' of thanksgiving leftovers...just like home.
always a pleasure to dine a buca di beppo's
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Server was great. She made the evening fun. the food was all wonderful. Plenty of food.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
meal for day's
Buca Di Beppo is by far the best restaurant I've been to in a while, the servings were great but even better was the food itself. I am definitely paying this place a visit again, if possible more often.
