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!
most accomadating restaurants in my area, Claremont, ca. . – Buca di Beppo restaurant is one of the most accommodating restaurants in the Claremont, Ca area.

Relax and enjoy, have a glass of wine!
the best fake Italian retaurant I've been too..a failure to the culinary society – Please, Please for the love of culinary existence, do not go to this restaurant...It's nothing but a trendy, fake, and disusting of a typical chain restaurant. Thinking that italian food consisist only of oil (I don't think they use olive oil) and garlic powder, this place of culinary nightmare shoves to our face, or to our not so accepting appetite, that...oil and garlic powder. No spices, no simplicity, and no originality, Buca tries to stand up as an Italian restaurant, but with an ugly trendy and "place to go" atmosphere. Buca also pretends to be authentic, with waiters and crazy follwers claiming it's a place where the food is the same as if you are dining in Palermo, Naples, or Venice. In reality it is a place where you wait an hour for a plate of noodles and ketchup, a place where the decor is a result of the owner seeing too much Godfather movies, and finally a place where u get served by a number of idumb young people who don't speak a word of Italian
avoid altogether – Charming and fun place, but the "Italian" food is not all that good. The meatballs can be bounced off the floor.
Besides, most chain restaurants are usually not very good, there are however exceptions.
Great place for a group! – My family gathered here for Mother's Day and we were highly satisfied with our experience. One thing though; their bathrooms feature some VERY bizarre images. Check it out if you don't believe me. Our food was good and our waiter was attentive, even with our large group. I almost wouldn't suggest this place for a couple as the portions are so huge.
Best Italian Food This Side of Italy! – Incredible italian food, unbelievable!!! Ambiance is fabulous, reservations HIGHLY recommended! This place fills up FAST!! For large groups, reserve the Pope Room - very cool!!
