Buca di Beppo: "Italian ???" Buca di Beppo Tip by showe1966

Buca di Beppo, Santa Monica: 1 reviews and 0 photos

Typical Italian-American restaurant.
Looks quite genuine but who knows ??
Had a lasagna - was overseasoned with Garlic making it somewhat inedible.
Tried the house red - it had a strange resinous taste - possibly indicating poor storage conditions.
I rounded things off with an "expresso" that was okay, but bore little in common with an Italian expresso. It was more like a cup of soup.

On the whole - mediocre experience.
Nice decor though.

Favorite Dish: the mineral water was okay.

Address: 2nd street santa monica
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: 2nd Street at Arizona.
Round the corner from the Georgian Hotel
