I enjoyed the authentic Italian food served at Buca di Beppo. The lunch portions are very generous and served with fresh loaves of bread. If you are traveling alone or a small party, remember they only serve single servings at lunch during the week. Evening and weekends require family style - which is just too much for a small or single party.

After having a bad experience at the Huntington Beach location we decided to give the Brea location a try. We were very pleased with the food, service and atmosphere. This place gets busy and parking is limited. Best to make reservations two hours in advance or come before the dinner crowd.

I was surprised just how good the food was. Just two of us dining, but we took a lot of food home. Here's what we had: Artichoke Florentine Dip - 5 stars Served with buttered, toasted bread. Unbelievably good! Chicken Saltimbocca - 4.5 stars. Delicious, but needed a bit more sauce...will ask for extra sauce next time. Broccoli Romano - 3 stars. Broccoli needed steamed a little more. Won't order again as $9.99 was expensive. Chocolate Chip Cannoli - 5 stars. Perfect! Service was wonderful. Our server Dominique was knowledgeable about the dishes and helped us make a decision on our main entree.

I had my late lunch-early diner this afternoon, and ended in a mixed spirit and feelings. Food was great at first bite, but as I was finishing the on top sauce of my linguini frutti di mare, what I was getting along my ritual of eating slowly was just pasta al dente, meaning that their serving of pasta is too big comparing to the main sauce and seafood.

They should advice upon table request about their servings sizes and/or develop portions that are design for single clients.

Their staffs are fantastic as well the ambiance and decoration, but the key factor to be consider "their food" loses and suffers unnecessarily.
