Open table gave us a reservation at 10:00 pm at Bucca di Beppo, when we arrived to the restaurant the hosstes said me that they will close at 10:00 pm. Thanks to the manager for his attention and service to us, but all the staff was upset because we arrived late and they will close late too. So Open Table verify that you are giving the correct information and reservations to the people please.

OMG the portions are ridiculously big. We got the holiday family meal that is supposed to feed 5. It could have fed 10. Lol. But I guess it didn’t help that we also ordered appetizers and a pizza bc we were worried it wouldn’t be enough.

It was noisy! I ordered Shrimp Parmesan and it was terrible and expensive- few shrimp with gunky sauce and dried pork pieces in it! I don’t eat pork but the waitress never checked in with us until the end of the meal and just said- sorry you didn’t like it!! No effort to correct or reimbursement or desert! We won’t be going back to this chain of restaurants. Also- I had to pay 20$ more to have pasta with this lousy entree and it was over cooked

We had 2 reservations for 8 and one for 4 at 8:45 on Thanksgiving evening. They ended up combining us all in one room. I realize that our reservation was later in the day, but everything was terrible. Our total bill came to over $400. Since everything is family style, we decided to get the Thanksgiving meal offered that day and also 5 other dishes of pastas, salad and bread. The last two were great, but the main dishes were not good. First off, I know we cannot expect an amazing turkey dinner at an Italian restaurant, but it was totally not worth the $70 we paid for the special. The turkey was dry, the stuffing was dry, they ran out of gravy and there were not even enough potatoes for the 5 people it supposedly served. At the end of the meal, I had to ask about the pie slices we were supposed to get too. The server came back and said the chefs had all gone home, but he found a pie and just brought it out. No whipped cream on the pumpkin pie. On to the pasta, we ordered the cannelloni and it was completely cold inside, so I had to ask to have it warmed again. The linguini was also lukewarm, but not as cold as the pasta, the lasagna was ok, not the best, but all right. They take reservations clear up until 9, so I can’t understand why we got subpar food just because it was later in the evening. It was frustrating to pay just as much as anyone who came in first thing in the day expecting a great Thanksgiving meal, and then forking over $400+ for pretty bad food. We had to ask for the waiter for water multiple times and I never received the lemons I asked for my water.I will never go to another Buca di Beppo again. Terrible experience and cost way too much!

ONE OF THE BEST PLACES TO EAT IF YOU HAVE A LARGE PARTY. YOU WILL NOT GO AWAY HUNGRY. THE SERVICE IS VERY FAST YOU ALMOST FEEL LIKE YOU ARE IN THE KITCHEN, THE GO TO PLACE IF YOU CAN'T DECIDE WHAT TO HAVE FOR DINNER.

Good food but service was not too good. Food was served slowly. Entree was even served first before the salad though it took a long time before each dish was served.

I’ve been to many Buca di Beppo and this was by far the worst experience I’ve ever had. The waiter did nothing to make our time there a memorable experience. There were just three of us so he did not make us a priority, rather we seemed to be an annoyance. He was focusing intently on the party of 6 right behind us. I had to ask where my wine was after waiting about 10min, and we had to get forks from an adjacent table. The Caesar salad for $19 was completely soggy and had a huge stem from the romaine in it I willl never go to this Bucca again, there are far too many restaurant choices in the area.

Overall we had fun, its a different experience than the normal which made it fun. The service was good and the food was good my only complaint was the set up of the restaurant. It seemed crammed and small walking spaces, felt like a maze but other than that it was good.

I wouldn’t recommend the food at all - extremely bland and flavorless. I know this is a chain restaurant so didn’t expect to be blown away but overall not great for the price. The guy taking photos was also an unwanted annoyance - just another way to get money out of their diners that isn’t necessary. Families eating here are probably already spending a fortune on a Disneyland weekend and don’t want the extra expense of a cheesy photo. Not impressed - will not be returning here or any other location.

Food was tasty and lit server was pleasant, but the portions are huge because they are all served family style. There were 3 of us in our dinner party who sat at a table near the bar. We each wanted something different, but we were told the smallest portion of any entree would serve 3. We wound up splitting 2 entrees (one of us didn’t get his choice) and had leftovers for 3 more servings. As we were leaving, we noticed a few individual guests seated at the bar were offered a lunch menu with individual portions for entrees. Our server knew we each wanted individual meals and didn’t mention we could have sat at the bar to each order our own meals instead of a booth next to the bar where we didn’t have a choice but to order family sized portions with wasteful leftovers.
