Buca di Beppo - Mira Mesa Ratings and Reviews
We had a reservation for 4 ppl and were seated promptly, but upstairs in the back corner of a room that was very warm. We asked to move to a booth in a different section and were told it was reserved for people who requested a booth when making their reservations. After we placed our order, another group seated near us in the corner, must have asked to move and they were allowed to do so. We also found the pricing outrageous... $30 for 3 pieces of Veal Saltimbocca with no sides (not even pasta) seemed excessive. We realize it was family style, but paying additional $10.99 for a side of green beans was not reasonable in our opinion.
Overall, it was a good experience. The staff were very friendly & prompt, and it was great to be able to get a reservation so we could get dinner before the kids bedtime. However, the kids pizza was pretty greasy, and the bathrooms needed some attention...You could tell that they were hastily updated with paint & needed cleaning. The adult food was pretty good, and the servings were so large that we got 4 more meals from leftovers.
Service was a bit slow and bit forgetful......but they were busy...when we tried to split our bill with 2 credit cards, waitress charged me the full amount and the second card the amount I had asked. If I had not reviewed my charge slip we would have way over paid the bill. Nothing that would keep me from dining there again though.
We were seated right away, order was taken and food was delicious. Everything was really good until it was time to pay. We couldn't find our waitress, but there was no pen when we finally got our ticket. It took awhile to find our waitress again. She gave us a discount for it which was nice of her. The restaurant seem to be very busy around that time however we waited quite some time to get our ticket and leave.
Even with the reservations we had to wait approximately 25 minutes. We had several waitresses attending to us which got a little confusing for them. It took longer than usual but ut was a busy night for them. The pairing of our food and wine was divine though. Yummy.
We went on Christmas evening so we knew it would be super busy but our waiter seemed to never be around. It took forever to get our drinks and he only refilled them once. Then when we were trying to go he gave us a little attitude
Over all though we did enjoy our meal and the food was delicious like always!
I was extremely impressed that our party was seated exactly at the reservation time even on Christmas Day with a lobby full of people waiting (presumably without a reservation) and a long-g-g-g line for take out. The staff was cordial and polite. Our waitress was knowledgeable and went out of her way to accommodate our requests. The atmosphere of the restaurant was relaxed, comfortable, and upbeat.
Thank you to the staff for good service and attentiveness to our large party. Everything worked out perfectly to accommodate our special food requests. The timing was perfect to get us to the movie premiere too. Thanks to all for making the birthday special!
