Went with my daughter just for a pizza lunch. The smells from this place drift for blocks! Very heavily spiced! Neither of us felt very well after eating the pizza! We never went back.

We love this place--they gave us a tour, and the food tasted quite good. It's a shame that it has faded so much recently--it still tastes just as good.

This has always been a favorite of our family; however, the quality of the food is on the decline. The cheese bread has changed. Unfortunately, it was hard and didn't have a lot of cheese. For the most part the food needs a kick of more flavor. The staff; however, was extremely nice and took great care of our group,... More

Our most recent visit to Buca di Beppo, this one in Claremont, was a joyous gathering for a somber occasion. Friends and family enjoyed the good food, great service, and italianized surroundings. Being able to share a meal with loved one as if one were at home passing around the fare is a wonderful way to spend an evening. No... More

Good food, excellent service, affordable prices! What more could you ask for? If you haven't been here before, accept the offer to take the tour. Just takes a few minutes on the way to your table, and there's lots to see. Also, if you've not been here before, ask your server to explain the portion sizes and to be realistic... More

We took our granddaughter here for her favorite food, "in her words" scabetti! She loved all the photos, the attentive staff & her kids meal of meatballs & "scabetti". We shared the baked rigatoni & enjoyed a calamari appetizer. It is what it is, family dining with an emphasis on fun....enjoy!

A unique place to eat with unusual photographs decorating the walls. Generous potions served family style with most dishes feeding two-four people. If you go alone, sit at the bar. Their menu has single sized portion although still very generous. I have eaten at Buca's in four different cities across the Nation and have never been disappointed.

Huge servings, friendly servers, and many options on this menu characterize this chain restaurant. Overall an excellent buy for the money, but not enough heart friendly options here.

I had a sea-food pasta and it was a two persons meal rather than one. I love the food, had a pleasant chat with one of the waiters and really enjoyed the Italian atmosphere in the place.
