A bit pricey for a week night dinner but....plenty of food and served family style is always fun. When you can, ask for the kitchen table so you can see the behind-scenes action at a busy restaurant. A nice added touch is now they take a complimentary table photo for mementos...we were celebrating a birthday so that was a special... More

The meal was okay. I had a coupon and spent three time more. The restaurant was not busy, but we hardly saw our waiter. The atmosphere was cute, lots of old pictures. If I ever go back I will maybe get a pizza.

Buca is always a fun place to go. This is our first trip to this Buca. Front desk personnel very friendly. Waitress was extremely friendly and did a great job. Meatballs are always awesome. and we always take one or more home. They are that big! We were full and had lots to take home. Big birthday surprise after dinner.... More

First of all, Buca is a fun place with really decent though overpriced food. We had a coupon. It was Halloween evening and we decided to stop and eat before going home to the neighborhood ghouls. It was 5:30pm and the place was empty. I mean, it is a large restaurant which can probably seat 200 at a time. Anyway... More

This Buca restaurant is really good, the food is basically like home made with very large portions. You get one small plate and with that you can feed 2 or 3 people.They have a lot of choices for appetizers, entrees, pizza and salads.

Had never been there before and was surprised everything is served family style which makes it difficult to order a single dish. As there was only my wife and I it didn't really allow to order individually. Good place for group or family. Food okay

I have been to other Buca restaurants and have always had good meals and service but not quite like this one. We always get walked through the kitchen and everyone says hi.

Very disappointed with them, lousy pizza, huge servings, very spicy, do not go there anymore, don't even want a gift card from there, not very good at all, other Italian places better.

Hadn't been to a Buca di Beppo restaurant in a long time, and were tired and hungry after a long weekend at an arts and crafts show. Italian sounded really good, so we stopped at the Brea location.
