Buca di Beppo - Claremont Ratings and Reviews
Very good calamari, seafood pasta, ziti, salad and cheesy bread. A bit expensive but massive amount of food. Service was excellent. Noise level was better than usual (maybe because it was Monday and not as crowded). We always make reservations so we never have to wait for more than 5 minutes.
where can I start? Kept waiting 15 min after reservation time with plenty of tables. See photo.
Many unbussed tables with disgusting leftover food left on them. The entire time of our visit.
food, cups and silverware on the floor.
Sat 10 min before anyone came for a drink order.
Birthday celebration identified in the reservation and server was told - they totally forgot about it. Were reminded - then they got the ice cream flavor wrong.
Bathrooms were atrocious. 'Stuff' floating in the urinals. Wife mentioned the women's restroom was not much better. There was stuff on the floor everywhere.
They served food - but did not bring us silverware to eat it with.
I've never thought Buca was a very good value, but its dirty and has poor service as well.
If you look closely at the photo you will see totally empty tables - with food on them - there is nothing pretty about a melted down huge ice cream Sunday 60 min after serving it. you will also see a lot of empty tables when they were telling people they had a 90 min wait. Plate and silverware on the floor.
Always have, always will enjoy visits to Nice, but lately the service has been poor...inattentive wait staff tarnished our lunch...the food however always saves the day...don't think I will be returning to this Buca again though, Pasadena it is from now on...Sorry Claremont.
Our waitress Ceci was great, however, a server was absolutely rude. Ceci suggested the chicken be cut in half for our large party. When it came out, it wasn’t cut. I asked him to cut it and he became upset. He was patronizing, arrogant, and ruined our special occasion. I reminded him the customer is always right. After all it was how I ordered it and he said it’s in company policy that the customer is not always right. We expressed our disgust with Ceci and she brought the manager over. Apparently the restaurant has received multiple complaints about him.
Buca is not a very good value any longer.
For Italian food I'd recommend you go down the road to Spaggi in Upland. Better quality food for the same price.
I had the ravioli in meat sauce. The sauce tasted like someone opened a can of stewed tomatoes into some half cooked hamburger and cooked it the rest of the way. No actual onion. No traces of pieces of garlic. No fresh basil or oregano.
I guess I got meat 'sauce.'
The place prob has not changed. But my perception of value has.
Made a reservation for 7:15pm. Upon arrival the hostess Emily tell us the kitchen is running behind. 45 min later now almost 8pm we finally get a table. Reservation, why bother seems like staff and management need to do a better job of setting expectations and gauging demand.
our experience was not the best. We never received bread. Asked twice. Still never received any. Than placed an order for parm. Garlic bread with our meal never received that either. Reminded our server three times still never came. Was my daughter's birthday asked for a piece or tiramisu for her when placing my reservation-never received that either. We won't be coming back to this restaurant. Definitely didn't get why we paid for. Very disappointed.
We ordered cheese breads and never received it when my husband asked the server he said he would go check and then never did. We asked a second time and then he said someone must have taken it by mistake at that point we were done with dinner and asked him to remove it from the bill-which he did. Our server was not around much. We were celebrating a birthday and he must have forgot because nobody sang etc.
The food was ok- however the chicken Marsala was dry and the spaghetti was not very hot.
We usually have great experiences here so this was surprising.
