Other than getting seated in the hot, noisy kitchen when we first arrived the evening was fabulous. We were able to move upstairs where we had much nicer seating and many others were having celebrations so it was an exuberant crowd and a lot of fun. Our first time there we were amazed at the size of our orders, all... More

I love this Buca di Beppo with our happy server Dana. Lunch was fantastic with fresh Salmon with loads of capers & fresh tomatoes. Join Buca di Beppo's E Club for coupons.

We returned here a year later to celebrate some birthdays and had a great time. The food is always good; we had the chicken saltimbocca, six cheese pizza, chicken parmesan an spaghetti. Way too much food although we did come with empty stomachs. The service is prompt and efficient and drinks and bread were brought immediately. Our order was taken... More

If you like a life=size bust of the pope inside a clear plastic box in the middle of your dinner table - this is the ghastly experience for you! Overpriced food didn't help the atmospheric depression.

I am sorry to hear you did not enjoy dining in the Pope's Room. It is one of our most popular rooms in all of our locations. Maybe next time you visit you can dine in our other unique dining rooms! Thanks so much for the feedback, we really appreciate it! More

The food is mediocre and vastly over-priced (from salads to entrees). It amazes me that this place is always busy. Even with all their discount coupons, this place is not a good value for what you get. I really don't like the Olive Garden, but I sure would choose it over this restaurant. We have given it several chances, but... More

When they say it is family style the are not kidding. Unless you plan on taking half or more home do not go by yourself. Portions are crazy even for family style. Food is Hot and Fresh. Some pastas are so fresh they may take 30 minutes before they hit the table. Pricing is great for the amount of food... More

I went here for dinner during a business meeting with 3 coworkers from out of town, and we called ahead to reserve the table in the kitchen. While the service was mildly disappointing (checked in too infrequently and had to be asked twice for silverware and a water refill at different times), the food was really great (we decided to...

We went to the restaurant at this location after new years and the receptionist said that the wait will be over 2 hours. We set a group reservation a few days after. We were seated in a nice private party setting. Service was good and the food was good. Some of our choices of pasta was very plain. We had... More

Portions are large, and the tell you are enough for two or three. Ravioli was good but not amazing. Salad was delicious. Not many vegetarian options. Wine was ok but twice the price for similar quality in Huntington Beach. Waiters were nice and energetic but it took a long time to get a water refill or our wine. Several loud... More
