Buca di Beppo - Pasadena Ratings and Reviews
Thank you Buca for making my brother's birthday a nice successful one. Our waiter was awesome. The food was delicious as always. Finally tried the Chicken Carbonara and I got to say it was very tasty. Love the awesomeness of your Pizza and Gorgonzola Salad. Thank you Buca once again.
I booked this restaurant because I have taken a large party here before. WE had a 630P reservation for 13. We checked in at 630P with all 13 people present and waited 45 minutes in an overly crowded lobby for our table. Their excuse is that "our table" had people there for over two hours! Unacceptable as far as I am concerned. And they told everyone the same story. They need to do a better job of table management if they are going to welcome groups.
Little disappointed that they will not allow to use two coupons at same time. I had a $20 off and an anniversary desert freebie. but if I can not use it together, whats the point.
Personally, I like my sauce to be on the richer thicker paste. but here I always feel that its water down too much.
Service is nice average.
Despite the reservation there was no table available until 35 minutes after our time, and only a "we're waiting for your table to be ready" as the oft-repeated explanation. At the same time, and despite a predictably HUGE crowd waiting for a table, no less than 5 tables that could have accommodated us and other mid-sized parties went uncleared for at least 10 minutes. The entire under-sized staff was sullen -- probably understandable given the staffing fail but still not OK.
Over all it was not a very good experience. We arrived and we checked in on time, but the hostess was not a very good one. We waited 1 hr after we checked in to sit. She kept checking other parties first that arrived after us. With a baby and 2 yo I was not expecting that big of a delay. We ended up sitting but by that time my little one was tired and was not able to eat the gmfood I got her. Very disappointed. They need to get better hostesses.
This is my family “go-to” restaurant! Served “family-style” and something for everyone. My grandchildren love the place (especially the BIG fudge sundae served it the large martini glass)!!! The service was a bit slow this time but that was understandable because of the Holiday Season and the restaurant being located in a big shopping area.
Although you removed the salmon lunch special from the menu, what me and my colleagues come for on a weekly basis.. they continued to serve us the same dish after we decided to raise our concerns and told them we didn't have other reasons to come for lunch.. so accommodating- thank you for that!!!
We've been to Bucca before, but this time was different. The food wasn't that great. The lasagna was almost bitter, and the rest of the food was all but blah.
The salad, as always, was delicious! The service was amazing. We had a blast, it's just the food that didn't make the cut this time.
Very good attentive service. Table ready when we arrived. Celebrated 2 graduations but waiter did not offer to do anything special. We ordered browniec sunday. Just asked.."what r u celebrating?" Not even a congratulations :( just dropped off sundae. Disappointed Frute de mare isn't as flavorful as I recall. My usual go to dish. Too watery. Would not order again. Rest of food good as expected.
My glass had a crack in it, I didn't notice it until the end of my meal! Calamari was spicy, I couldn't eat it! Broccoli was one of the ingredients in our meal we were told late into our waiting time that they ran out of it! We'll give it another chance since we do get coupons, our waiter was good.
