"Buca is one on the more consistent (in quality) "chain" eateries. The food style is "comfort food / Sicilian style."
If you are looking for gourmet northern Italian food you will HATE this place.
If you are looking for hearty red sauces, large family style portions, and a good time with a group this is the place."

"Our waitress was very personable cordial or friendly. Even with it being Christmas Day , she was enthusiastic. Used opentable to make a last minute reservation. Grateful! Only waited less than 5 mins. Very busy and alot of people waiting for a table. Don't think they had reservations"

"Not a place to go to for special occasions! Too much food makes the quality low. Table too small for 4 people with lots of food on big plates. A previous dining experience at another location on thanksgiving in 2013 was much better."

"Met family and friends from AZ for Thanksgiving dinner.........
Had reservations for party of 10, we were seated right away, and taken care of immediately. Service was exemplary, as was friendliness of staff. We ordered Thanksgiving meals plus pasta.....everything was tasty and everyone was satisfied.
Thank you for taking care of the shopping, cooking, and cleaning up for me. I was able to enjoy everyone and everything.
Appreciatively,
T Brown

"Very nice dinner out. Would have been even better if our waitress was a little more attentive. It was not overly busy while we were there. She did not offer to refil drinks or bring water. Had to flag her down a couple of times. Other than that - food was good and enviroment was clean."

"We went to Buca for my sons birthday. I had made a special request prior and told host to inform Wait staff of the birthday.
It took 10 minutes bfore we saw our waitress. We had Valerie or Vanessa. She was rude. Argued with us on how to have our food. Never saw her again till we flagged her down for boxes and our check. Never was asked how the meal was or if we wanted refills. The table across from us had same problem. I would not advise going here. She never addressed Birthday.
Food is so so. But plenty except sauce. Marinara was watery. Had to ask for Balsamic for Caprese salad.

"Front service and seating was excellent . Our waiter couldn't even remember our drink orders, forgot our waters, we couldn't have the appetizer we wanted. Bread was served without butter or oil.... Just dry bread. The entrees were OUTSTANDING. I would possibly order from the 2 go menu again, but I'd avoid the restaurant."

"We enjoyed our 3 year anniversary at Buco Di Beppo for the first time! Our calamari was a little small for a "family style" portion. But our chicken parmigiana was delicious and so was the baked Ziti. Our server was very nice also."

"it was my grandmother's 85th birthday celebration...the service was really slow.... we had to ask for refills on drinks, ran out of calamari, large pizza were a small size pizza. we were offered a free pizza an actual large pizza so that we can just take home, when my mom was paying, they ended up giving our large pizza to someone else....we had to wait for them to make us a new pizza and when we finally got it, it was not even cooked! we've been to the Mira Mesa and downtown Buca, but the service was not like this experience we had in Carlsbad. we wanted to try a different scenery/area for a change and the experience was just not good at all. IT WAS NOT A GOOD NIGHT ....."
