Buca di Beppo San Diego serves authentic Italian cuisine in an eclectic, vintage setting. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by everyone at the table. Two sizes are available: BUCA SMALL feeds two or more and BUCA LARGE feeds four or more...
great place to take the family...or when with kids.
Want the best waiter? Ask for Chris. A+! He's super nice & attentive. :-)
Seated for over 8 minutes and we weren't helped. Service sucks!
2nd time I've been here and received bad service.
Leaving rude wait staff:(
Not impressed, the food can feed many but at the end of the day the kids started tossing the pasta around cause it was gross and sticky. Don't waste your money.
Great portions. Eggplant Parmesan is amazing
Try the Caprese Salad (via @Foodspotting)
Make reservations for the kitchen table any time you can!
Even the small portion is huge!
The linguine fruiti di mare is as simple as it is excellent.
Great food with Great friends
Quoted 15 minutes and have now been waiting over 45 for just two people. Hosts have no idea how to work a seating chart or how to create a restaurant flow. Worst buca ever, and I used to manage one.
Food is good and the portions are family size
Don't use more than one coupon per table! They won't take more than one!
Don't sit downstairs by the bar. Avoid Rachel the bartender/server. So loud and annoying. Otherwise, a great place!
BUCA get's old
Parking here is much better than in Downtown San Diego. But you miss the ambiance of the city.
Best Family style Italian atmosphere and food
Pretty sad that with over $500 in business, they could not take off (2) $10 off $20 coupons. Kathy was our server. 5/29/11@7:00 p.m. Bad management and service. This poor kid was 12 with no parents!
Bad management. Large party of over 25 and they would not take a coupon from a 12 year old ordering an adult sized portion and even ordered a brownie sundae so that he would spend over $20.00.
Try the lemonchello martini, its delicious!
Copious amounts of very good food. Had a lame waiter, though, but would def go back.
