Buca Di Beppo in Redondo Beach is a large Italian restaurant, family style, suitable to fit large parties and dinner celebrations. You will find typical Italian food dishes (those with the names ending with ..lla and ..tti. ) nicely prepared and presented in very large portions. So large, that if your party has less than four people – prepare to take plenty of food back home – or pay extra for food you could not eat.
Also, be prepared to pay $2.50 at the restaurant’s own parking lot. (No validation) which I find outrageous. This is not a mall parking lot or city metered parking. Just for this reason and as a matter of principle I will not go back there.
The restaurant is nicely decorated with authentic Italian themed pictures and paintings.
The owners of the restaurant must be Catholic, judging from all the icons, and pope pictures you see all around. The background music, if you can hear it above the patrons’ noise, is pure Italian. Nice touch.
