Description: Buca di Beppo serves authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by everyone at the table. Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more. At Buca, guests delight in our lively atmosphere, enjoy the classic tunes of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin and admire our decor, including family photos and candid shots of Italian-American icons, such as Sophia Loren and Joe DiMaggio. Our energetic atmosphere, delicious food and friendly staff make Buca di Beppo the perfect place for great Italian food and fun.

Beer is pretty standard on tap with Blue Moon and Shocktop found here and pretty much all over their SoCal spots....pretty common up here in the OC....this location of Buca is just like all the others...matter o fact, you could close your eyes and make it to the bathroom---not hard...the food---well I cant compliment the "family" style service, but like that they at least go beyond the American idea of Italian.

Right in front of the Embassy Suites. Good Italian food at a reasonable price. Service good. Menu has a good variety of offerings.

I have been to Buca di Beppo a number of times now. Being from Canada this chain is not available where I live so I have tried to hit one whenever I travel to the US. This particular restaurant has been a favourite of mine and I have eaten there many times. The key to a "Buca" is the fact that servings are all family style and the decor is - well - busy! The Mista salad is always good and I have yet to have a pasta I didn't like. The Chicken Parmisan is one of my favourites and I am not a big chicken eater.

I cannot recommend this more for a group - order a number of dishes and be prepared to share.

This place gets so busy and parking (which is shared with 2-3 other hotels) is the most challenging. But it's good for a large group and the family-style works well. It's also good for kids - who doesn't like pasta and pizza?

This is where you go if you have a group to feed. It's all family style, and there is plenty of it. Nothing too exotic, just good basic Italian food. Can be loud, and very crowded. Servers are generally good, but stretched a bit thin. But the food is always good!
