Humongous portions of decent food in fun setting

This is a great place for friends and family with decent food, but be careful not to order too many large portions as the small ones are even huge

One of the most important things to me when eating out is that we are treated well. Recently we ate at Buca's on the way home from LA. It was a Thursday night and the restaraunt was not busy at all. We were promptly greeted by friendly staff, seated right away, and the surver greeted us almost as soon as... More

We went for dinner last night, April 23. It was not too busy. We ordered their house Chianti, which was very nice. Then we ordered the eggplant parmesan (for two family style) and we ordered one of their large meatballs with sauce. Both dishes were excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. He checked on us several times. He... More

The bread was good, the spaghetti was good and the pasta tubes with peas were good. I have gluten issues, but have found I can eat pasta from other countries. Be it they don't allow GMO's or what, I don't know. I asked, and was told the pasta is from Italy. We were able to eat at the

When my family comes to town, we often find ourselves at Buca Di Beppo. The Thousand Oaks location is great and we've never had to wait long for a table. I never used to enjoy eggplant parmesan, until I had it at Buca Di Beppo. The portions are huge, but we always seem to find more room for the eggplant... More

This place has decent food in a fun environment. While, that may sound like an endorsement, it isn't. Generally, you have to wait a while to get in. The service is hit-or-miss. The portions are HUGE, so you won't go home hungry or empty-handed. I expect better food and service for the price. Maybe, if you are with a fun... More

Took a chance on Buca's based on recommendation on busy New Year's eve and while we waited 45 minutes they got us in and food and service were excellent. Nice family atmosphere, generous portions and great desserts.

We ordered Take Out for Christmas Eve and when we got there, we knew that the staff was clearly not ready for the business. Orders were not ready and the line was growing. I am not sure what happened but I was not impressed. When we got our order finally after about a 45 minute wait, they forgot to put... More
