Menu is priced very high, there are two options small and large, they make you to share which is not ok. When two people order two different items, it becomes very pricey

The Chicken Samboltica was way overcooked and dry. There was not enough butter sauce. The service was not attentive and the reply half the time was not friendly.

Service from Dana and Julio were worth the visit;
Very entertaining!
Food is too bland... too-dated and menu needs to be refreshed!
Wine list also.... refreshed or get rid of

Had a nice business lunch with another couple. We all shared the spaghetti and meatballs, cheesy garlic bread and a nice Tiramisu dessert. Helen was our waitress and was extremely helpful. When back in the area, will come again! :)

Father’s day - It was very cold inside. Loud. Our server was attentive, but we had to wait long for our food to be served. Veal Milanese was greasy, sauce consistency was too thick for me.

Was not sure what to expect, but being greeted by two girls (hostesses) chewing gum was not it. Very unprofessional, a complete turnoff. Unfortunately, it set the mood for the rest of the evening.

This was supposed to be a Happy Birthday celebration, unfortunately it was NOT happy.
My party of 6 people arrived on time but we were seated 20 minutes late. UNACCEPTABLE
The half-circle shape table provided was too small, requested larger table but the wait would have been an additional 30 minutes. To accommodate a comfortable seating for everyone without hitting each other's elbows, the assistant Manager decided to place a chair on the center of the circle outside in the walkway, felt like being in the open and everyone is watching you. UNACCEPTABLE
It was impossible to order single entree from the menu, all were giant sizes for 3 or 5 people. Excessive amount of food for no reason. UNACCEPTABLE
Overall the restaurant needs a major housekeeping, upgrading and/or renovation. Bad experience throughout.

The waiter didn’t bring out our waters until our main entree came out. Keep in mind that we ordered an appetizer salad and bread, so not having water was not ideal. The food was okay at best, nothing special. Honestly, the only reason we came to this restaurant is because I was emailed a coupon for $20 off of $40. Definitely will not be back here for a while. Would rather go to Olive Garden or a “hole-in-the-wall” Italian restaurant.

Staff was flexible and friendly. Food was delicious. Service was friendly and hard working- she was a bit overwhelmed but she did good overall. Most of our table had never been and they enjoyed the experience

This was my first visit to Buca. The food was bland. We had Lasagna and Garlic Butter Shrimp Fettuccine. I requested additional garlic butter but it did not help. They were kind enough to remove the charge for that dish. Just as we were about to leave a water bug crawled across the seat. It was not a good first visit. The sever was very kind.

We had a family dinner celebrating a birthday, a baptism and family visiting from out of state. We were fortunate to be seated in the "Pope Room" and my grandkids thoroughly enjoyed this experience. We had a lot of great food that more than satisfied everyone. Our waiter packaged all the leftovers in various containers for the different families to take home. I highly recommend Buca di Beppo in Huntington Beach for a great family dinner.

Overpriced meal because they charge the group. Each order is per person, though most of the thing they serve are carb rich foods that will bloat you. Quality of food being Italian is mediocre at best.

Ambiance is great, food is very good and you will have some to take home. Service is somewhat poor; last two times after being seated I had to get up and ask who my waiter was going to be. Trends a little expensive despite the large portions, which aren't quite as large as you are lead to believe they will be. Always bring a coupon to save $15 or $20 before eating here.

Thank goodness we had a top notch waiter! I made our reservation on Open Table, explicitly said that one member of the party was in a wheelchair. At the front desk I also reminded them that we needed wheelchair accommodations. The hostess said she was aware. We were taken to our table (they do have an elevator) and we were sent to a booth. The wheelchair blocked the very busy walkway. The hostess walked away even after we asked for another table, not a booth. There was no offer to find a new spot. The host just left us there. Our wonderful waiter, Andreas took charge, moved us to a new table that was able to accommodate our family member. We then had a wonderful meal.

We had a good time. The food was good and the 2nd server we had was fantastic, Mac. Our first server left due to a family emergency so we were in limbo for a bit, but it all worked out. There for my dad's birthday and he liked the song.

After being introduced to the hostess, she explained to me that even with a reservation we had to wait 15 to 20 minutes. After waiting for 50 minutes, with a five-year-old in tow, and letting her know that we would need to be updated on our seating position, the hostess rudely explained that we were positioned behind five more tables. Needless to say, she does not belong in that type of role, in a high-stress environment. With many other options surrounding this restaurant I truly the lament visiting this bucadibeppo. Additionally, the food was bland, not what I typically expect of buca di beppo.

Did not like sitting in a booth. Every time someone had to use the restroom everyone had to get out of the booth. The waiter disappeared after the food was served so we could not get extra water or order coffee.

We had a great time! Our server Dana was awesome! He was friendly and very patient while we were looking over the menu, not to mention hilarious! Dana made us feel at home. He asked if we had a coupon after our order, so we found one for $20. The stuffed mushrooms was delicious, especially with the pesto sauce. The presentation of Linguini Frutti Di Mare was a work of art...with the mussels lining the serving bowl! It tasted as good as it looked, excellent! We also had the Chicken Marsala (my wife's favorite at Buca) which tasted great! My son ordered from the lunch menu and had the Baked Ziti which was ok. Dana not only took pics of our family, he took a selfie too! He asked which girl winks at me...What? (Cool "Easter egg" in the uniquely decorated restaurant!) Kudos to Dana who made this a fun & memorable experience!!!
