Buca di Beppo is NOT an authentic Italian joint, so don't come here expecting the best of Italy. It's an Italian-AMERICAN joint, with big portions, garish decor and an unapologetically fun vibe. Still, the food is tasty, the service is phenomenal and the layout of the restaurant is exciting. Bring a group to share the food, or come for lunch when you can order smaller plates. The bar is fun as well, and house wines run at $7 per glass. Not too bad!Recommended for:

Awesome family style Italian restaurant. Great place for large groups. It gets noisy and crowded during dinner. Food is good and mainly served family style. Advance reservations are highly recommended for larger parties. Always a good time at Buca Di Beppo.

have your expectation set right:
caters to large groups - its proximity to Mosocne makes it an idea location for group dinners.
no dish thing will leave you speechless happy but it's fresh, done just right, if not very imaginative. price fair, not cheap.
passed the lemon test.
PORTIONS ARE LARGE! BEWARE. must share or admit you are out to pig out.

Been here a handful of times, but my most recent visit was the best to date. A friend celebrated her birthday and ordered a good amount of food for a table of 18 people. Out of everything, I liked the bruschetta, penne san remo, linguini frutti di mare, and eggplant parmigiana. Their pizza was average, but it was a little burnt on the bottom (blech). The birthday girl was presented with 2 slices of celebration cake after dinner. According to the site, it says it's red velvet. But when is red velvet ever bright red? Looked pretty scary, and pretty much tasted like regular white cake with a massive amount of food coloring in it (true that Chantie G.). Maybe not the best place for dessert, but they're pretty on point with their pasta. Stephanie was our waiter and gave 5 star service. Unfortunately, other than the fact that the portions are huge for family style dining, nothing else really stands out. Hence the "a-OK" rating.

So....my cousin graduated from the Academy of Arts....and I was starving. The line to get out of the underground parking by SF City Hall was long..so I went commando and went up the entrance side effectively avoiding a head on collision on the one way ramp. ;D
We headed to Buca...where else would I prefer to go for such a large group and a bar that reminds of being in Vegas? Ok, the pasta isn't great by any length of the word, but it's alright. The thing is I guess given that I always order the same thing....which I guess isn't such a good think since I pretty much pigeonhole myself and never try anything new. I'm working on it. But till I get that down you'll find me ordering the Chicken Saltimbocca....oh yeah! And if you take a look at my avatar picture....you'll notice that I LOVE THE TIRIMISU......I had asked for the bigger spoon.......in a family of filipinos you know it's not how fast you can eat, but how much you cat get each time you get your spoon in...and I won't hesitate to knock your spoon out of your hand.
When you come to eat with us, you best come correct. lmao
