Buca di Beppo - Pasadena Ratings and Reviews
My glass had a crack in it, I didn't notice it until the end of my meal! Calamari was spicy, I couldn't eat it! Broccoli was one of the ingredients in our meal we were told late into our waiting time that they ran out of it! We'll give it another chance since we do get coupons, our waiter was good.
Very loud inside and hard to have any dinner conversation without yelling and/or repeat yourself. We ordered a pasta and and an entree to share. The food was slow to arrive and very average in taste and preparation. I can't think of any reason I would ever come back here.
I have gone to Bucca Di Beppo in two different states now (Washington and California) and the best time I have ever had was this one by far in Pasadena thanks to sitting in the kitchen and having the head chef as one of our waiters!!!!
Excellent, Amazing, Incredible! Best Birthday Ever! #ThankYouChef #SitInTheKitchenItIsTheBest
We had a great time celebrating New Years with our family. Our waitress was awesome and food was delicious with reasonable prices. I was a bit disappointed with one of the male waiters though. My almost 2 year old slipped on their wet floor and I asked him for some Ice for her the bump, he told us we had to wait and walked away from us and never came back. I proceeded to the bar area and asked the bartender for some ice and he almost hesitated until I told them she was hurt and needed some ice. He gave me the ice and then the other waiter was all of a sudden concerned about my child. This incident will not keep me from going back. The service we received from our waitress compensated for that one bad apple. Thank you so much!!!!
We enjoyed being able to have a large group seated together but the location that sat us was not that great. They places us in the bar behind the bar seating and blocking other tables. It was cold, windy and loud being close to the door as well. The service was not that special as well - we kept having to ask for items, water, extra plates, etc. and the waiter would just walk by us without asking if we were doing OK.
It was FANTASTIC! Went to celebrate 2 birthdays. Thought at last minute to request the Chef's Table. Suprisingly it was available. It was such a treat to be doted on! The food is incredible. And the portions...!! Leo, the BarMaster kept the celebration flowing. Each drink was tastier and smoother than the previous. ;-)
Oh...the Birthday serenade was the most vibrant, whole-hearted, smiling cheer I have ever received!
I am still smiling. :-)
We only come here for special occasions because the portions and prices are both high. I only wish they would start making single serving portions so groups didn't have to argue about sharing dishes because of the size.
The food, service and ambience are always good.
Buca is a place for large parties to share all dishes as they are HUGE. It is a very high atmosphere where everyone is loud just like an Italian family. Celebrations are festive and they sing to you and the entire restaurant chimes in. It is authentic Italian . The place is covered in wall to wall pictures and statues of old school people and costumes. Some of them are pertinent to the olden days. The bathroom is done in light pink and is decorated to the nine as to the age. There is an option for customers to sit in the middle of the kitchen during dinner. This allows them to view the dishes coming out to the tables and be a part of the hectic action. They have huge martini glasses with ice cream sundae's which are big enough to share for the entire table.
