    We went traditional this visit with lasagna. Very good because nice and cheesy, lots of ricotta but too big for two but you just want to keep eating. And we had the apple salad, always delicious. Food was good, service was alright. The only issue was other guests not being considerate for a couple just wanting to have a quiet dinner. They should seat guests according to size. A room of couples and then the rooms with large groups. Large groups think they have to be heard throughout the restaurant.

    Buca di Beppo is a nice Italian restaurant, especially for groups. Sunday I enjoyed a lunch there with my family. The food was excellently prepared and abundant, the atmosphere was nice, and we all had a good time. My only concern was the price was excessive. I could easily have taken the whole group to any number of other nice local Italian restaurants for half of what Buca di Peppo charged. And that was without anyone ordering alcohol.

    My experience started really bad. My son was taking me on a Valentine’s Date and I booked the reservation here with a special note. Upon arriving to the restaurant they had not read my note and grabbed a happy birthday sign. My son was confused because it wasn’t anyone’s birthday. We waited 20 mins before I had to ask someone to grab our waiter. This definitely helped my decision of not returning back to the restaurant. When we finally got a server, he was very friendly and apologized for the extended wait.

    Got there for Christmas Day dinner. Pizza is a Christmas tradition for us. When we got to the restaurant we were informed that they would not be serving pizza today. So we left, it basically ruined our Christmas plans. Won’t be going back anytime soon.

    We are a family of four so every year we go out for Thanksgiving. This is our first year going to Buca for the “turkey dinner” . We never expect too much from chain restaurant Turkey Dinners …mostly because it’s not their specialty . However, Buca blew us away!!! The turkey was so moist, the stuffing with italian sausage was delicious, the green beans had a snap to them and the mashed potatoes with garlic and butter, yummmmm. We were all so very happy with our experience. My husband would have enjoyed a pizza but, maybe their ovens were full … and this is why there was no pizza. He actually said it was for the best because he wouldn’t have tried their turkey otherwise. We already decided we will be back next year.

    We were a party of 10 celebrating a Birthday. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Juan was our server and was very friendly and answered all of questions about the menu. The food was delicious and came out very fast. We highly recommend the Thousand Oaks location and will be coming back again!

    Great food! And, it’s a fun place to celebrate your birthday! I highly recommended the chicken limone! I get it crispy. And, the huge birthday dessert in a giant martini glass can serve at least 12 people(depending on each scoop)! The atmosphere is loaded with quippy quotes on murals, posters and other trinkets amidst an array of Italians and their love of gossip, family, and famous celebrities . Some of the wall decor is a little racy, but it’s in always in good spirit. It gets you talking amongst the group! Great ice breaker for all! Go have fun at Buca Di Beppo!

    I haven’t been to a buca di Beppo since 2006. I remembered it to be a kitschy Italian place with lower end Italian American fare, but on par with maggianos. I can’t express how shocked i was at the food quality. It all seemed frozen and reheated. Absolutely terrible. Even our kids felt the food was inedible. Imagine my confusion when the bill arrived. I feel like I’ve been to every restaurant in the west valley / Ventura area and I can verify BdB is an alarmingly unassuming rip off. Lower quality than Olive Garden, and more expensive than the best Italian restaurant in Thousand Oaks. Try literally anywhere else.

    Great lunch BOGO special that brought us to restaurant. Warm bread brought to the table, very large portions of eggplant parmigiana. I had the spaghetti on the side and it wasn’t great. Not any flavor to the sauce. Other diner has fettuccine al freddo and said it was very good. We each took some home for lunch the next day.

    The food was excellent, but very expensive. Took a group of 10 and the bill with tip was nearly $50 a head. A liter of Sangria is $31 and not worth $10. Totally full of ice and a true disappointment. Nice birthday surprise for the birthday celebrate and a nice closing touch on the evening.

    We went for Christmas dinner and the staff was very festive and friendly and did not seem rushed even though the place was packed. The food was delicious and luckily we knew the portions are HUGE so we ordered 3 “small” entrees for 6 people and took a lot home. I’m glad that I stumbled upon this place!

    I have dined at this restaurant many times in the past. Food is delicious, service is decent and the ambience is lively. This is a casual restaurant and it seems like its popularity has fizzled out over the years. This restaurant and all its chains used to be quite crowded and happening. It is no longer crowded. It is still a good bet for a casual dining occasion.

    The quality of the food for the money, was poor. Spaghetti had zero flavor, chicken parmigiana was a little rubbery , the garlic bread and Caesar salad was good, the best thing we actually had. Overall it was disappointing.

    My daughter chose this for dinner following her HS graduation. The service and food were both meh. Nothing remarkable and really nothing special....just average. The 2 martinis that were ordered as soon as we walked in took more than 20 minutes to get to the table. The prices were definitely very high for what we got. The person who sat our party was the most unenthusiastic lethargic person they could have found for the job. We will not be making a return trip.
