I couldn't believe that there was a 15 dollar cake fee for bringing your own cake. At first I thought the guy was joking, so we ended up eating it in the parking lot.

The waiter said that it was common for the sauce to separate from the over cooked spaghetti.... he kindly offered to drain it and bring it back... refused to bring butter... incredibly slow service... every other buca I’ve been to has been wonderful.. maybe it was just an off night

This was our first visit to Buca di Beppo and Disneyland with our family of five. We loved how happy and friendly all the servers were. They encouraged Birthday celebrations and took fun pictures to share with family later. The food was delicious and fast.

Made an Open Table reservation and we're able to get us in quickly and we're attentive. Waiter had a large group next to us but never forgot us either. Food was out fast, hot and fresh. Staff was absolutely on point. Photographer lady is very talented that we purchased all the pictures. Definitely be back!

We always love dining at the Anaheim Harbor Blvd Buca! Whenever we can we ask to sit in the bar area because it is much quieter and we get to have James as our server! James provides A+ 5 STAR SERVICE every time! He makes our dining expereince so enjoyable.

Waiter didn't seem to care we were there. Seems typical of chains near Disneyland. They don't seem to care about good food. Will focus on more local non chain places from now on.

We were dining at this location after a long road trip. We were excited to eat here because we've eaten here in the past. All the food came out pretty quickly except there was a delay with my daughter's macaroni and cheese. She's 4 and waited patiently. The server let us know that they were still making the mac and cheese, but she could try pasta with alfredo sauce. My kid is visual and didn't like it. Once the mac and cheese arrived 10 minutes after the adults had their food, my kid had a couple noodles and was disinterested. The server said, the food wasn't going to be charged. When I received the bill, the mac and cheese was charged at $4.99. I asked, why are we being charged? She stated, oh, I wasn't going to charge you for the pasta with alfredo. WHAT?! We never ordered that, but you asked us to try it while waiting for the mac and cheese. We paid the $4.99, left a smaller tip, and left. Disappointing.

It took a very long time for someone to take our order, and our food came at different times. The food tasted good, but the experience was so dismal that I would never go back.

Our server was was lovely but our food came out wrong three times and the manager came out and didn't even say sorry for the inconvenience. She was so rude and the only thing that saved our night was our lovely waitress. What a mess!

We figured we would try the restaurant due to great rating on here while visiting Anaheim. While the food was ok we were seated by the wait station next to the bar. It was very uncomfortable having someone next you you typing in orders constantly. Also we watched many guests go to the bar themselves complaining that they didn't receive their drink orders. I thought the food was very overpriced for what it was. Although they claim to be family style out portions were only about 1 1/2 a portion size at other restaurants.

The food was delicious and our server was awesome along with the other people that visited our table. The only negative comment I have is about the woman who was seating people. We were at the restaurant 20 min before our reservation, but for some reason people who came later than us were getting seated before us...even people who had about the same number of people that we had in our group (10 people). So, although we had a positive experience with our server and the food, we are not going to consider going back there if we are a big group.

Our overall experience at Bucca's was great. We've been there a number of times and always like it. I wasn't too happy however when I called to tell the hosts that we were on our way but stuck in traffic. She explained if we weren't there in 15 min they would give our reservation away. I let her know we were very close and that part of our party was even closer. She insisted if we weren't there
in 15 min they would give our reservation away. I understand the rule is in place to keep people from holding tables and showing up whenever they want but I was trying to explain to her that we were not neglecting our reservation. I thought it was a bit unreasonable. I'm sure she was just doing her job but sometimes you have to know when to give and take.

We arrived at 6:30 for our reservation for four, after checking in with the host, he told us it would be a few minutes. After waiting 20 minutes, I checked on where we were out sitting. He told me that we were ahead of everyone else, so we stepped a side and waited. Then two ladies walk in was checking in and 5 minutes later their party of four got seated. What's the deal?? I was going to find out what was up with that, but I didn't see it doing me any good. This was frustrating.
