We make a point of eating here at least twice during our 7 day stay in the area. The food is second to none and the service / atmosphere is always fun. No matter how busy they are our wait is minimal for a table and I challenge anyone to come away saying they are still hungry or couldn't find something to eat.
These last two times we shared the huge sundae with friends (split 5 ways first time then 8 ways the second time) and everyone got enough.
Our waiter was Kyle this year and we enjoyed his service and sharing.
If we come back to California we will always make room for Buca during our visit.
Thanks!

The food is served family style, and better with a group of four or more. The selection and food are great and the ambiance is fun.

My company recently hosted a business meeting at Buca di Beppo to which we invited a number of clients. Our meeting included a video presentation and involved a specific seating setup. The staff at Buc di Beppo should present a seminar THEMSELVES on how to properly attend to customers for business meetings. They accommodated our needs very well. The food was great (really, great!) but it was the professionalism of their service that set them apart. Our waiter, Dave, was incredibly attentive without being intrusive. He even helped carry some of our video equipment without being asked and before we'd even been introduced; he simply knew what needed to be done! Our meeting style was somewhat casual and food was served during the event. This occurred smoothly and flawlessly and Dave even paid attention to the fact that presenters sometimes don't get time to eat; he pulled food to the side and made sure that all were happy. All this for a very reasonable price. I would engage Buca di Beppo again in a HEARTBEAT!
