  • "Continues the trend of enormous portions. The small entrée feeds at least two. We easily spend $50 without any alcohol, no salad, no dessert. We shared an appetizer, ordered two small entrées, and had two meals to take home."

  • "I have eaten here before, but this time I decided to host the birthday celebration for my oldest grandchild, she turned 12, so I had 7 of my 8 grandchildren there and 11 adults. And we had an excellent time with food and service that was over the top !!!!!"

  • "We had a party of 13 and had made reservations. They were ready for us when we got there, and were seated right away, which was nice since we had 5 hungry children with us. Our waitress was awesome and made the suggestion to get the spaghetti/meatsauce out to the kids before our meals so they wouldn't be restless. The portions were large and more than fed us, and tasted divine!! The best chicken parmesean I have had in a long time and the garlic mash potatoes are to die for!! Love love love Bucca's!!!"

  • "My wife, daughter and I went here for my 35th birthday, we made reservations and asked for a sling. The hostess did not look at the reservation and was asking the same information we filled out in the reservation. Almost had to tackle the waiter to get our food packaged and our bill. I don't mind being put in what they call a kid area since I have an infant but when the staff is making more noise than the kids and waking up sleeping infants then I have a problem with it."

  • "In the past, we have always had great experiences at this location, but not this time. First, we were surprised that there was no wait. Often when we went in the past on a Sat night, the wait would be over an hour, but nobody was in the lobby waiting. We ordered chicken parmasean, but they brought us veal (which we hate). The fettuccine alfredo had no flavor, and used to be one of our favorites. Our kids didn't like the pizza. Some of the dishes were chipped badly. We never got refills of our lemonade which is way over-priced at $3. We spent $17 on one soda, 4 lemonades, and 1 chocolate milk with only the soda getting refilled. That's crazy! We asked for some water and it tasted horrible. They need a filter for their water."

  • "The NCHS Gathering meets monthly at different restaurants, we are now in our 4th year. We've been to a lot of restaurants! The fellowship is always great whether it's just 2 of us or 20 of us! The food was very good, single servings would have been nice. We had fun sharing and tasting, but with food allergies and dietary needs everyone could not participate."

  • "The staff is always friendly and attentive. The food is excellent. The manicotti is a family favorite. We enjoy the family-style way of ordering and serving meals. Buca has an excellent salad. The staff does a great job with special occasions. We've always had a tremendous dining experience there!"

  • "there were 8 at our table and I think our server was just a little overwhelmed with all the folks in the room even thought she said she had help. We ordered salad and appetizers however the spagetti and meatballs came out with them. Then we waited a long time before any of the other entrees came out. Food was good just in very poor order. Poor service. "

  • "Buca has lost it's luster. Have not been here is quite a while. Went to the Greenwood location a few months ago and was very pleased. The food at the Castleton location was not as good. The alfredo was dried out when it arrived with very little sauce. Other dishes appeared to have sat for awhile as well. I noticed another table that arrived after we ordered were served first. My guess is that our food sat waiting to be served. This effected the overall quality of the food. Spent far more than the value received. Probably will not go back. There are far too many options available in Indianapolis for quality Italian cuisine."

  • "As always food is wonderful, I think our server was maybe new, she seemed in a hurry, forgot we asked for butter, although she was very friendly and polite. Our overall experience was fantastic. will definitely go back every chance we get. "

  • "The food was very good and was delivered to our table rather quickly. Our waitress was attentive and came to the table several times to address our needs. "

  • "Food was good, but our service was terrible. We had an 8 p.m. reservation on a Sat. night for a group of 12. We waited forever to even get waters. We weren't served our salad until 9:45. Our waitress was never back to ask what we needed. This place was just bought by planet Hollywood and when you buy a specialty drink, they immediately upgrade you (without telling you) to the $13.99 version with the commemorative plastics glass to take with you. What a scam! Who wants the glass - you are buying a drink! We told the manager and he took it off the bill, but I know they are being told to charge people without telling them upfront because it happened at the bar and at our table. There are much better options for what you pay per person here. "

  • "My friends and I went here before our prom last weekend. The food was excellent but the service was very poor! We waited at least 10-15 mins for a refill after asking for one. A couple that was in our group arrived about 15 mins later than we did and our server never asked for their order! Maybe the server didn't do as well because we are high school students and he knew he wasn't going to get a great tip, I don't know but we didn't appreciate the service. He received probably a worse tip than he expected in the beginning. That was our first time their and it wasn't a very good experience. "

  • "Sunday night was very fun at Bucca. Many of the cheerleaders had never eaten there. The food and service were very good. Our group was 10 in size and our waiter remembered everyone's drinks, picked on the girls and made the whole experience fun for them."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "Maybe it was a one-time experience (I have had good ones there before), but it was not a good one this time. In fairness to the wait staff, they had a sports team and prom night to deal with, but the result was that our party was ignored for long periods of time. I ordered a second drink that never arrived and was never mentioned again (after waiter didn't show up for about half an hour). I'll probably give them another try, but not soon."

  • "We sat at a table along the tour route. We heard "this is the cardinal room, this is the wine room" every 5 minutes, each time they escorted a another group right past our table. That got a little old, but the food was great. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "The food is spectacular. The room was perfect for our party, with almost no other parties within ear shot. We were celebrating a birthday- it will be one that my 18 year old will remember! We had one gluten free guest, and the entree she ordered was wonderful. The server was a little hesitant to go above and beyond for the gluten free guest, but in the end, it was nice. Gluten free food is as spectacular as regular menu!"
    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "They have great, family style, food!!! Portion sizes are 2-4 people or 4+ so only order one entree if only two people or expect left overs!!! The booth we sat it seemed very low and close to the table so it felt like I was kid height again, not so good for a 6'1" person and my wife is shorter than me!!! That's the only complaint!!!"

  • "While Maggiano's has scaled back, cut the menu and is cutting corners on service and quality to improve margins, Buca wowed us with great food, value sized family style options and fun! Awesome job and great experience."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "Food for 4 special wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. There was only enough of the main course for 3 reasonable dishes, not 4. The waiter was very present but not too attentive. He brought out the wrong kid meal and never did bring her drink out. We did get her meal for free which was very gracious of the restaurant and we did have a good time. We have been to this restaurant many times and were very pleased with the meals but in the future we will probably stick to individual meals instead of the specials."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "For the cost and reputation, the food was bland with little sauce on most items. Most of the pasta seemed dry as if it was reheated too long after being cooked. Garlic cheese bread was heavy on the garlic and just over powered the bread and cheese. Restaurant was also out of lemonade which is a must for most menus with kids. We were told that they were delivered coke lemonade and it didn't fit their system. We have eaten at other Buca locations with better quality of foods. Just disappointing for a $75 meal."
