Stopped by this place yesterday for lunch. From the outside, it is certainly inviting, with the look of an old, established downtown Italian restaurant. They open at 11:00 for lunch, but when I walked in at 11:20, the young lady at the front desk gave...More

Although sharing plates is not my favorite, my niece suggested this place as it was close to the hotel. The plates for 5 were enormous and they're were a lot of leftovers. Food was very good and quick service. We could have had plates for...More

We waited a long time to be seated but we figure it would be worth the wait. The food is served family style but the portions are NOT big enough for a traditional American family. If I was a super model and my kids were...More

Bucca di Beppo seems always reliable. We visited one in Philadelphia before San Diego. The atmosphere is full of energy and the menu is reliable. If somebody is very hungry this is the place to visit. The portions are large.

This was my first experience at a Buca di Beppo and probably will be my last. Not only was the food quality poor and our options limited, but the service was terrible. I am an extremely picky eater due to multiple food allergies. As a...More

We were with a group in a separate groups room. Very noisy. Service fine. One glass os mediocre house wine was over $13 with tax, tip, and "admin fee". There are definitely better Italian places listed right here on T.A.

I know this restaurant from Naples, Florida where it is a lot of fun. Very clean and pleasant. I was expecting the same in SD. As in Florida you are taken to your table via the kitchen. The idea presumably is to show you that...More
