 (New England)·Dined a day ago

The restaurant was very busy, which is to be expected when a large convention is in town. Our table was not ready at the time of our reservation, which was a little disappointing, however the staff quickly made up for it. Our server, Lauren, was great. She was personable, gave great recommendations and most importantly, attentive. My group loved the family style dinner. The food was delicious and came out quickly. This was my first time at Buck but will certainly not be my last.

We've been to this Buca a few times and overall its a great experience every time. There was a mix up this time when we were seated and we were seated in a section that might have been overbooked. Our server was extremely busy but gave us excellent service regardless. We generally visit this location when in the area because its customer service and quality are superb. Would highly recommend if in the area but make sure to book ahead because it gets very busy.

Good experience. Food was very good. We had a group of nine so I wish they had round tables so everyone could speak with everyone. Long tables only allow for conversation with those closest to you. I’d think as a family restaurant, they’d have at least some round tables.

Food is great but service is very poor. Our server RICO is so unattentive with our needs. Did not refill our water on time, did not give us clean plates,napkins unless we ask and we have to repeat asking before giving it.

Good food, good service, excellent value. The noise level is high, so conversation is difficult. While we knew it was "family style", we weren't expecting the portions of the desert to be THAT big (one desert would easily feed 5, we ordered 2 deserts between 3 people).

We absolutely love eating at Buca where we get a great meal and best of all get to have James as our server! We always sit in the bar area because by far James is one of the best servers of all time! He provides 5 star 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 customer service and always remember us when we come in!

At a convention at the Anaheim Hilton and looking for a last minute reservation for a group of business friends. This place had room and was excellent. Our server helped us choose the right amount of food to serve us all family style. Place was a great value.

Great food. Huge portions! Order one dish, and share it, seriously. The sauce is authentic Italian marinara, the meats are fresh and well spiced. There is a kids menu, but again it's a huge portion. Try the spicy shrimp!

Typical Buca - loud and lively. We haven't been to Buca in a while and wanted to go someplace where our young grandkids would be welcome (and drowned out by the noise!). The issue we had was that the kids received their food asap but the order the four adults took close to an hour - much too long really for what we ordered. We ordered one of the chicken dishes (only a 3 piece (small) order and a small pasta to share. Our server must have been overwhelmed by the number of tables he was serving because he was barely around to inquire if we needed anything. Because we took two cars we left with the kids in one shift and the other two adults finished eating and paid the check. Poor experience. Sorry Buca, this trip was a fail.

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.

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.

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.

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.
