Buca di Beppo is an Italian restaurant chain that serves delicious Italian fare with very generous portions at a fair price. The ambience is warm, cozy & inviting, but the service was sorely lacking. Our order took forever to arrive, then they had gotten the order wrong. Our waitress was nowhere to be found, so we had to flag down... More

We always had great experiences except on October 12th. Food was good as always, but the service....just awful. We had a reservation for 6:30 PM. We got to our table at 6:40, the waitress took our orders at 6:45 (food, drinks) so far so good, right? Then the wait started....no bread basket, no water, no beer...the waitress said she will...

I have never had a bad meal here. I am a big eater and I have never been able to finish a meal here either. One entree will stuff 3 or 4 people. Have a teenage boy at home? He won't be able to finish a meal all by himself!!!! Order one salad, one main dish and one side for... More

This particular Buca di Beppo may be slightly different from others, but there are many similarities. Even the "small" portions are way too large and costly, too. Service was good, but the portions should be individualized. Also, I ordered a side of garlic bread, and was given a basket of cut-up small slices...not quite what it used to be. Buca... More

Good for families and parties. I liked the one in Santa Clarita more than the one in Thousand Oaks. BdB is obviously very Italian in flavor and ambience. The food was good, but its a bit institutional. A lot of times, with this sort of place, its the waiter that makes the difference. We had a great waiter at Santa... More

This is a great family restaurant. Their pasta dishes are for sharing so it is better if you have a group going. They have individual dishes too, and I have enjoyed everything I have tried there.

The menu selection is large and has all the usual dishes. I ordered the baked rigatoni and my son got the baked ziti. I... More

Buca in Thousand Oaks is a great looking place but........We will NEVER EVER go back again!!! First It is definitely NOT a place to go without a crowd. since they only serve large portions for 4 people or more. We hadn't gone to Buca in a long time because it can get very expensive for very ordinary food. However Since... More
