Love the entertaining decor. Love the family style plates for big groups. Staff was very nice and friendly. Wine was good, food was good. Open table reservations saved us as we were on the way to San Diego without a reservation for 9 and Open table found us one quickly and easily from our cell phone. Thank you!!
We dined here and the server was sick. My significant other ended up getting sick after being exposed. I know it is difficult for servers, but come on, stay home when you are sick! Server was very nice, but keep your germs to yourself please!
Got in and out; food was good and plentiful. Wait staff were great. We have been there several times before and will continue to go again.
It was my first time dinning there and the food was delicious. The service was really good as well. We had a good time celebrating my husbands birthday.
We did have a great meal. Our complaint would be that our table was SO close to the one next to us we couldn’t even move our chairs. I had a child in a high chair and the family behind us kept fidgeting and pushing her. We also felt rushed, salad came out and dinner almost immediately not letting us enjoy each course. Our server was polite, but for a Christmas meal-surely could have been a bit better. We brought dessert home, and the cannolis were only half full of cream.
Disappointed to find this was a family-style restaurant since I was with 1 other person. Food was OK, nothing great. They cancelled my Open Table reservation while I was eating which I realized after I left. I called and asked why and they didn’t seem to know that we get points for booking. I guess they are too cheap to pay the service fee. Wouldn’t go back or recommend it!
Great service and food. A bit too noisy for our comfort level but it won't stop us from returning to Buca Di Beppo.
It was amazing food was great service!! Will definitely come back.
The downtown location of Buca di Beppo was not as tasty nor was the service as good as it had been in Mira Mesa. The chicken saltimboca and the baked rigatoni were great but the stuffed pasta foursome was disappointing as were the brussel sprouts.
A little disappointed with our dinner last night. The food ok nothing spectacular. By the way, if you like a little spice in your food DO NOT order the Spicy Chicken Pasta dish. It’s very spicy. We like spice but we couldn’t eat it. The spaghetti and meatballs were ok but not enough sauce. Our waiter was nice and very helpful but I can’t say the same for the waiter helping the table next to us. Imagine sitting there enjoying your dinner with your spouse and two kids then all of a sudden you can’t hear the conversation at your table but it’s drowned out by a group of 3 loud talking cussing idiots sitting next to you. A few minutes later there was a issue with the food and waiter says, “did you touch any of the food?” No, we didn’t touch it because we didn’t order it, is the response. The waiter walks away and comes back with more bread and says, “hey, I’m sorry, I didn’t mean to be a Dic%.” Ok, stop. It’s bad enough these adults with no manners are ruining everyone else’s dinner but to have a waiter use vulgar language like that when there are other people sitting right next them and can hear the whole thing! We aren’t at a bar! We are at a family restaurant having dinner with our kids!
I’m giving a bad score not because of the cursing customers but because the waiters should not perpetuate bad behavior by customers.
