Very great Customer Service

I recently went for my B-Day dinner and we had a total of 21 people. 12 children and 10 adults. Due to the number of people when I called to make reservations I had have a pre - fixe menu, which was all good. When my family and I arrived that night i'm not sure how it was mixed up but they made enough food for 21 adults. So initially I though it was gonna turn out bad because I knew 5 and 6 year old were not gonna eat all the food we ordered. Im sure it was just miscommunication, but I spoke with the manager and I MUST say the waiter and the manager were really accommodating and it was very NICE to have ended my night with great pleasure. Thanks Buca!

Giant portions and delicious.

This is a great place to go with a group for family style meals. The portions are huge and delicious. I love the decor! Also, this is the best idea for take out either for your family or if you are hosting a party!

Love it!!!

This food is delicious, and I am very picky when comes to italian. The portions are huge, so come with an appetite. It's a cool place to go with your whole the italian decor!

In Santa Monica? there's much better within 5 blocks.

We were well behaved, planned on spending a good amount, and felt like Buca was a good place to enjoy a friends birthday. UNFORTUNATELY our waitress and her manager didn't believe this was the case.

Long and short of it is, if you bring a group, plan on overspending for a decent meal. Sure the food wasn't bad, but in Santa Monica? C'mon, you can get better. Try one of the other 5 great Italian places within 5 blocks - you won't regret it, like our group of 10.

Or try El Cholo, or C&O's or anywhere but here.

Creative and wonderful atmosphere

I know one of my biggest pet peeves when i go to a restaurant, is to have a stuck up server and everyone around me seems a little angry with everything happening. Yes, that is a stereotype but if you have been to a place like this you may kind of understand. Buca Di Beppo is a refreshing alternative to one of these restaurants. They dont serve you little bite size meals at unbeleievably disgusting high prices. Buca Di Beppo serves you pleanty to fill yourself with, and it is exceptionally good. An Italian cuisine cooked to perfection, available in the United States. If you like fun family places, Buca Di Beppo is definatly one of the places you'll want to try!

Picky Italian loves it here!

I am very particular about the Italian food I eat but this food is great! Large family style portions so be sure to share OR order from the one section on the menu thats specifically for individual people. I've tried a bunch of different dishes and they were all fabulous. I took my parents here- my mom is even more particular than me and they both loved it. The decor is SO fun to look at- its unbelievable that they have so much Italian stuff! Definitely not your typical chain restaurant!

Bucca de Bland

The food is completely bland. The pasta usually comes out half cooked, and the sauce tastes like spagetti o's. If you are in the mood for a lot of high priced food with mediocre flavor, I'd cook at home.

Good Italian Food, Great with a Large Group

I have been here 3 times and I would say it is pretty good, not great. It is great for a large group, so that might make the difference. The Chicken Parm is good and so is the Salmon. I would skip the fresh mozzerella marinara. I would also skip the tiramisu, which none of us were a big fan of. Overall, tasty but nothing that out of the ordinary.
