We really enjoyed the food. We have been to this restaurant several times. This time the food exceeded our expectations. Service was a bit slow, the hostess was not friendly at all; however the server was very nice and the kitchen did a good job.

We brought a large group of family for a special dinner. The room was private but very cramped. It was humid and smelled bad. The food and service were so-so. The smell and conditions were really bothering my daughter so we excused ourselves without finishing dinner. On the way out I inspected. The place is littered with interesting old memorabilia but never cleaned or dusted. Along the carpet by edge of wall we're old shellfish shells, food stains and other debris like they just use the vacuum to shove them out of the way. I have been to these restaurants elsewhere and they were good. This one was disgusting!

The waitress that sat us was rude, just slapped the menus down in pile and left us. Then they brought us wrong dish. The food is very blan and you have to buy dishes to share. Their is no way to order just one serving and everything is a la carte. If you want good italian food I recommend going across the street to Olive Garden.

There is a very big selection of items on the menu with small (serves 3) and large (serves 5) choices. It certainly gives you an opportunity to take a doggie bag home for at least one and maybe even two additional meals. The food was very good and the service was good as well. The only drawback is the crowded parking lot at Oakridge Mall.

We went to Buca di Beppo for a quick bite to eat for lunch during the week. Thursday, October 12, 2017. The restaurant was not busy, so they seated us next to the bar. The server took our orders. We decided on the lunch specials. The menu stated soup and salad with all lunch specials (portions are smaller). Perfect, we both ordered from the specials. We asked about the soup and salad. The server, Jonathan, stated it was a menu error and you get your choice of soup or salad. Ok, we got the salad. Later we thought, the restaurant should have honored the menu items, but that was an after thought. Our lunch came, and to our surprise, it was missing the pasta which was included. We asked our server where is the pasta? He stated since we ordered the salad as an option, he did not offer the pasta. We countered that pasta is part of the lunch special. Followed by a pause, he stated "oh" and went to get the pasta. We finished our lunch and he provided the tab. We paid and left. What a strange or should I say anything but "special" lunch we shared that day at Westfield Mall (Oakridge) in San Jose.
