“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I ate here recently with a group of friends and it was great! The food all comes family style with their "small" portions very large. I don't know what the large portion must have been like. We ordered 3 different entrees and it fed all 6 of us with plenty of leftovers to take home. The wait staff were all very good. I would definitely eat here again!

“A Feast for the Eyes and the Tummy!”

This is a unique place. The decor is outlandish and wonderful. Every space has something on the wall that make you laugh and smile. The food is hearty and outstanding!

“Birthday Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Had a wonderful time with my family celebrating my birthday. We had the Pope Table which was a nice big round table in it's own special area. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. My grandchildren had so much fun and they said they loved the restaurant and want to go back.

“Just average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

I'm not really fond of chains and Buca di Beppo reminded me why. The food was just ok. It was loud. I was underwhelmed.

“Fun & Fantastic Food with Friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Food is consistently wonderful at Buca in Claremont. They no longer make the gnocchi, however, which is very sad. Love the pesto sauce.
