My daughter likes "Buca". Every time we pass by, she asks to go out to dinner because we live very close to this location. While most Buca de Bepo locations I have been to have met my expectations, this location does not. The Claremont "Buca" is always crowded, has slow service and now features cold spaghetti. Yes, 40 minutes after... More

36 of us sat down unfortunately still pretty full from lunch to a family style dinner of two pastas, chicken and salad. We had a private eating area. Service was superb and food a 3.5 out of 5. Convenient to the Doubletree Hikton where we stayed.

It's not often you eat out and find the taste out of this world. We had no idea what this restaurant was about and man, did our taste buds go on a trip. We actually only waited about 15 minutes to get in... but got there before 6:30 and that seemed to make a huge difference. Loved that we were... More

I ordered take out over the phone to be ready at 4:45. I arrived at the restaurant promptly and within eighteen minutes had my order. I was hostessing a small group of friends and had ordered the large Caesar salad, lasagna, and Alfredo fettuccine. The amount of food was very generous; however, the quality was disappointing, especially since it cost... More

7 of us met for an early dinner at Buca di Beppo on a Sunday. Best decision we could make. Friendly servers, tasty meals, great service. Love getting the bread rolls with oil for a starter! We will come back, over and over! Family meals can't be beat! Ceasar salad rules too! The stuffed chicken dish was fantastic! Thanks Buca... More

Took 16 guests at lunchtime on a Thursday. We had reservations. One waiter to handle entire party. Waited over an hour for food. Had to ask waiter for bread. Never filled any of our drinks or offered to fill. Food when it arrived was lukewarm. It was indeed not a very good experience nor am I anxious to go there... More
