Out of all the pasta places in San Diego this one remains one of my favorites.
GREATTT PASTA!!! – This place has such an awesome atmosphere!! I went there for the 1st time this past weekend, and really enjoyed everything. The food was delicious, and I even got a tour of the kitchen- how sweeeeet is that :) YUMMM!!
Lovely – This is by far my favorite chain restaurant for Italian food!!!!!
Good for a chain restaurant – I enjoy Buca di Beppo. It's my favorite chain restaurant to go for Italian food, especially if I have a large group joining me. My husband and I go on our own and get the smaller portions of chicken parm and we absolutely love their fried mozzarella. It is nice to go to a mom and pop Italian restaurant if you want the intimate atmosphere but I like coming here with a fun group. The service has been adequate for such a large and busy restaurant.
Get cozy with friends and family and enjoy an Italian feast at this loved-by-locals restaurant. – In Short
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!
very dissappointed – Where to start....My family and I came to celebrate my birthday at buca di peppos for dinner. After reading the reviews, I was very eager to try this " cozy " Italian restaurant. What a disappointment. The service was absolutely horrible. Our server probably said 5 words to us the whole night. Our server kept forgetting to bring our beverage order to us (2 sodas) and finally managed to bring them about 10 minutes after our appetizers arrived. Once the main entrees arrived our server immediately dropped the bill off which definitely left the impression she wasn't there to give us further service. As for the food, it was just okay .....large portions but not very special in taste. Hopefully my experience was a fluke but I won't be coming back.
FUN FUN FUN – Don't listen to the first 2 reviewers, This place ROCKS! the food is to die for. Especially the veal and the eggplant parmesan!!! delicious. I took 2 friends that seemed unimpressed and ordered 1 plate of eggplant parmesan and they ended up fighting over it. So we ordered another plate. Great for families and the wait is worth it. High Regards
Don't Go Here! – My friend and I had a bad time at this restaurant. We had made reservations in advance for 8pm... We got there around 7:50, and waited... waited some more, and some more, and finally got seated at 8:45. What is the point of making reservations if they don't count for anything??? Once seated, we were less than impressed with the ambiance. If you intend on being able to hear what your friends have to say, skip this place. It was extremely loud, with people constantly banging their silverware on their glasses, which at times was so loud I had to put my fingers in my ears. The food itself was ok, but just ok and definitely not worth the unpleasant experience of this place!! Go somewhere else!
