Too Much Attitude

My first meal at any Buca di Beppo was in June 2010 during a visit to CityWalk. The snobby manager and hostess, standing atop their perch, seemed bothered that people were actually approaching them for a table...go figure. I was craving a family-style Italian dinner and was willing to wait for a table, which surprisingly wasn't very long.\r \r Our waiter was impatient and bursting with Hollywood arrogance. He ke... view more

I had dinner there last night and me and the rest of us had the best time....the waiter, Joe was awesome....and the fun was sooo good!! Would love to go again for Thanksgiving....he said they would be open and that they will be serving turkey and an awesome homemade sausage stuffing that day! I already made my reservation....can't wait!!

Bad service

Hi, I was there about a week ago and only ordered the spinich salad. The other party that I was with finished their whole pizza. The other table was even laughing after the waitress was like ""oh yeah I'll get your food AFTER I TAKE THIS TABLE'S ORDER""\r \r This was only funny for the waitress.\r I called Manuel and talked to him and even followed up but he didn't care to call. THIS MUST BE TYPICAL.

Great Italian Food, Great Atmosphere, Great Service, Huge Portions, Reasonable Prices

Always heard great things about Buca from friends and co-workers but never went as we already had our favorite spot for Italian food. Went over to Universal City Walk about a week ago for a movie, decided to have dinner after. It was a good opportunity to give Buca a try, WOW! Great food, a lot like my mom used to make. Her father was from Italy and she used to serve it up right, so does Buca. The portions are amazin... view more

Reservations - Why bother

Horrible experience. This was the second year in a row our office Christmas party was here. Last year we waited outside, in the rain, for 45 minutes to be seated - despite having reservations. This year we called, confirmed our reservations, informed them of last years experience, and we were promised that it would not happen again. We called again on the day of the party and confirmed that we would not be left stand... view more

Fighting with a waiter

\r The food is not bad and neither is the pirce, but I was shocked at the staff. Perhaps this was a frustrated actor, but you never treat a guest so poorly! As we left, we were knocked down by a server who when I got in his face about his rushed attitude, wanted to fight me! Really! His language and actions were shocking. I am in the biz and did not want anything out of the ordinary, but I brought his abusive n... view more

This place is a blast ! : )

We love going here, it is always so much fun and really good food. The best thing, of course - is the atmosphere. I can't say enough about Paulo the waiter, he knows us by name and we feel like we're in a small town in Italy.\r \r Highly recommend! If you go, try the antiipasto.

A visit to Italy by way of L.A.

I must say that I am not a big fan of Italian food, but this place made me reconsider that. The portions are extremely large and we ordered the small serving from the menu and it was more than enough for two. The deep dish garlic bread with cheese is enough to stuff a party of three. You must try the bruschetta as it was very flavorful. My party received the chefs table, which is located directly in the kitchen. ... view more

I had high expectations for this place. We never got enough food. The platters are big, but they the food has drowned in a sea of sauce and when you dig through them, there is very little or nothing really there. Good restaurant for Ally mcbeal size people who like Chef Boyardee.
