The bread was delicious and portions are big. But I think it's overpriced. It would be better if a soup or salad was included with a dinner entree. They did a good job of singing happy birthday to our daughter and the candelabra was an added surprise.

We have a location near our home and this location was near the hotel we were staying. We decided to give it a shot since it had been at least 8 years since we have been back. Now we remember why we hadn't been back. The service was hit and miss with bread/drink refills and the food was ok. The... More

We went out for a wonderful evening, so we tried Buca di Beppo. We had a rather large party, so they put us in the Pope room. The service was great, and the food was fantastic. They fed 8 adults and 5 children for under $250, which believe me, was a great deal. Would definitely go again.

Our front desk recommended Buca as the closest. We hadn't heard of the chain, and didnt know it was 'family style' sharing. Not our thing, as we had two teens, one a vegetarian, so it meant all 4 of us ordering one dish! Not the restaurant's fault. Cheese stick appetizers went over well with the kids, free bread was fresh... More

...Unbelievable. We also ordered a side that wasn't delivered. The atmosphere is nice and every employee was friendly.

One of the first places we dined at when visiting the Anaheim area, Buca piles on the experience rather than the taste. Starting with a tour through the kitchen, and a photo session with the on-site photographer, we eventually chose lasagne, but it seemed a touch short on the sauce which made it quite dry. In all, the service and... More

On entering the restaurant we were asked if it was our first visit . As it was we were shown to our table through the kitchen. This was a great experience and showed us how clean the kitchen was . The restaurant is well decorated and the tables space is good . The menu is vast and so many choices.... More

Very good chain restaurant for Italian food. Especially suited for large groups. Sauce is excellent in all dishes. Particularly good desserts. Very large portions, so prepare to take food home.
