Tustin >Food & Dining > Buca Di Beppo
Portion sizes are a hazard. The food tastes great here. I like their use of garlic. Everything has a very authentic taste to it. However, I have to be very careful to go with alot of people. I'm finding more and more that I'm having diffculty controlling my portions. so, although I love the food here, I leave feeling a littyle guilty because of overeating. I'm going to have to do something about it soon.
Never again. I cannot believe how unprofessional the management is at this restaurant. The poor waitresses have to make up for their management's failures. Never again.
Great Food, Fun Atmosphere, Excellent Service. The kids too me to Buca Di Beppo for my birthday. They know how particular I am about Italian food and yet they took the risk. As it turned out, they could not have made a better choice. Service was superior in every degree, and the food, though not to the high standards of Mom and Grandma, was nonetheless surprisingly good. Plus, the atmosphere was casual and fun. Not to mention the prices were more than reasonable and the portions ample. We'll be back for sure.
Potential Glutton for Punishment. I may be a glutton for punishment, but I intend to visit Buca here in Irvine one more time before I pass judgment. Buca in Brea is consistent and impressive, both in service and quality of food. My response to the Tustin Buca, however, was tepid at best. The service was slow (about thirty-five minutes to receive our food) and inattentive (no refills on drinks or bread). The food, unfortunately, did not compensate for the poor service (our meals were luke warm and I question the freshness of the salmon). I am not one to make hasty judgments, so I will return to this Buca (yes, I like pain), but if the meal is no better than the one I first encountered, I will find little reason to spend seventy or eighty dollars here again.
Better Management @ fast food. There management has a lot to be desired and there food was cold, could not get a refill on our drinks the food was not good no meat in souce small portions for the 22.00 per person.
This place will scrue you. We book a large party on March 1st for there gold room then we recived a call on the day befor the party at 1:pm he told us that the room would cost us $2200.00 that was never discussed with us back on the 1st. I know they do this to more than one party so that they can run up there price for the room. This is a very F*u*k*d way to run a buiseness.
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant..
Homesick for your mother's Italian cooking? Grab your appetite and head to this restaurant, where the friendly wait staff will serve up portions of Colosseum-esque proportions, like spaghetti and meatballs loaded with savory tomato sauce and lots of pungent garlic. Dishes center on Southern Italian immigrant fare, and are meant to be shared family-style with a large goblet of wine-to enhance the taste, of course. The ornate décor with walls covered in vintage photos evokes a warm homey feel that welcomes customers to dine among the other families and loyal customers. Buon Appetito!
Great customer service, kid friendly. I was very impressed when I walked in and the resturant had a table for the children to play. Then after having great service, when they sang happy birthday to my son they brought out bubbles. It was an has been great memories. We've been back several times since and have nerver been disappointed
The illusion of fine dining. It's good. It's pretty darn good. But here are some drawbacks: 1) so loud! 2) family dining makes it hard to get exactly what you want 3) tables are not conducive for conversation
Italian Dinning Like Home. Loud, fun and friendly. The Pope room is the best for large groups.
