This Buca restaurant is really good, the food is basically like home made with very large portions. You get one small plate and with that you can feed 2 or 3 people.They have a lot of choices for appetizers, entrees, pizza and salads.

Had never been there before and was surprised everything is served family style which makes it difficult to order a single dish. As there was only my wife and I it didn't really allow to order individually. Good place for group or family. Food okay

Plenty of room to spread out with the family, friends or groups. Lots of atmosphere and all food served family style. Nothing special but good food.

I have been to other Buca restaurants and have always had good meals and service but not quite like this one. We always get walked through the kitchen and everyone says hi. The service is always good and the food is great if a little too much of a good thing. This is a family style restaurant so the plates... More

Very disappointed with them, lousy pizza, huge servings, very spicy, do not go there anymore, don't even want a gift card from there, not very good at all, other Italian places better.

Hadn't been to a Buca di Beppo restaurant in a long time, and were tired and hungry after a long weekend at an arts and crafts show. Italian sounded really good, so we stopped at the Brea location. We were shown to a table in the back of the restaurant, and were totally ignored by the waiter for over a... More

1. FOOD: We have been here a number of times and always enjoy the food. My favorite is their Family Style servings in a large dish in which every person serves their own portion - that could not be better. We like their lasagna, antipasto salad, ravioli and of course their bread. 2. SERVICE: Grade: B - always very good.... More

This restaurant is very good. The food portions are big, usually 2 people will have more than enough from a single entree.
