Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!!!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Always great service and food at Buca's! This is one of my family's favorite stops while in Indy. We had a group of 10 on our last visit and had quick, friendly service. The food is outstanding, and you get a TON of it."

  • "We had such a nice time on 03/31/2014! We had a group of 8 who got together for a fun Girls Night Out. We had lots of wine, good food, and a wonderful atmosphere. Our server Amanda did a great job; she was even able to split up all of the bills evenly for all of us. The food was DELICIOUS and the cocktails were fabulous. I am excited to bring my family in for our next visit."

  • "Enjoyed the food but not the best place for a couple. I realize now that this resturant is very kid friendly which made it too loud for my likes but it is great for families."

  • "The hostesses were very short and somewhat rude while walking to the table a brief tour took place through the kitchen and around the whole restaurant. During the brief tour she was trying to say where things were however she walked so quickly ahead and spoke so fast I could not even hear her or understand her. After arriving at the table I could not even carry on a conversation with a friend because we were put in a room with a huge party who had been drinking. I had to ask for our bread but not until our food came did we receive it. Then when we finished eating our waiter boxed our food up and took our bread when we were still eating it. It may be better another time but this wasn't the greatest experience."

  • "My family enjoyed Buca di Beppo in Castleton recently. It had been several years since we visited this restaurant. We found the service to be excellent and the food just as excellent. I enjoyed the many Italian favorites plus many unique dishes that you can't find at other Italian restaurants. Eating here was a nice change from our normal dining experiences."

  • "Our family gathering of 18 people ranging in age from 1 to 86 was seated at the large "pope table", which was just perfect. The domed ceiling over the huge round table ensured that everyone could hear everyone else. It provided the right amount of separation and privacy for a group, but we still felt connected to the rest of the restaurant. Food and service were excellent as always. We ordered a ton of delicious appetizers, entrees, and dessert and still came out under $20 a head, so how can you beat that?"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "We had an extended family gathering meal. It was a great place to eat family style, with their large portions. The food was wonderful, the staff was excellent and worked well with our group of 10. It was a great experience and made me want to return soon!"
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "We sat down with a group of 13 including kids. It took 25 minutes to get even drinks. The waiter seemed overwhelmed. Surprising since they market towards group. Food was good once we got it. Several mistakes by bringing out the wrong food. Overall liked the food and ambiance and hope service issue was isolated."

  • "Had a GREAT Time dinning at Bucca's.....We were in the Pope Room which added to the evening ambience. Would definitely recommend for a different dinning experience. Plus, the food is wonderful!"

  • "Waitress recommended too much food and did not help adjust the amount of food according to our guest. Waitress was not friendly."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "The only thing that could have been better for our group of 6, was an experienced waiter. He took our drink order, delivered the drinks, and then disappeared. Brought us warm plates for the salad, and brought the main course with no dinner plates. A little disappointment to an otherwise amazing dinner experience. The food and atmosphere are what set Buca apart. Will definitely return, but will be expecting a lot better service."

  • "This restaurant is set up to remind you that family and friends are what makes a meal worth sitting down for. They remind you from the beginning that the portions are meant for sharing, this can make for a great romantic dinner or night out with children or friends. You can dress up for a night out, or bring the kids for a nice dinner, either way you will enjoy your visit. The tour through the kitchen was great and all of the staff are very friendly. If one passes you on the way to your seat, they make sure to say hello and to ask if they may be of service. If you want a pleasant eating experience, feel free to enjoy a meal at Buca di Beppo's!"

  • "Going to Buca di Beppo is an event, we had a great time. We ordered several dishes and shared, getting to taste many great things. The pictures on the wall occupied my 3 year old grandson. Everyone there was so friendly and our server, LeAnn, was great. There are cozy, romantic corners and less quiet places like the Pope room. Something for everyone!"

  • "Had a group of 20 for my wife's birthday. We were seated a few minutes after our reservation time, but not too long. The service was very good. But not great. Though I will say the room the seated us in was perfect."

  • "Having never been to this restaurant before we weren't sure what to expect. We were given a "tour" of the restaurant/kitchen before we were seated. The food was excellent. We had the stuffed mushrooms and the spinach cannoli. The pesto/basil sauce on the mushrooms was awesome. We will definitely go back."

  • "Overall, very pleased with our visit. Staff was helpful, food was good. We celebrated two birthdays though, and neither party received their complementary dessert, just the one we ordered for my son. That bothered me a little, as we have gone there many times to celebrate birthdays. Sometimes they've given us the layer cake, sometime they would just comp a dessert of our choosing. But to offer neither seems detrimental to their business model. There were 8 of us that night, our bill well exceeded $200. I imagine they could have offered a complementary dessert with little effect to their bottom line. Again, this isn't a major issue by any means. But I will say, their service is what always brought us back and it seems to be dwindling."

  • "This was our first time here. The food was awesome and the service was to par, but you could tell a large group that was extremely loud threw the entire staff off and the setting for the evening. That being said, the staff still did their best with it and service I would guess was only mildly disrupted. I would still recommended this place to anyone that wants a good dining experience!!!"

  • "We have been to the Buca Do Beppos downtown Indy several times and had a great experience...we went to Castleton this time because it was more convenient. Our waitress was very nice, but we did not have that great of service and I don't believe it was THAT busy. Lots of time waiting on more bread, drink refills, the check.....the salad and appetizer was great..the main meal (steak parmigiana) was not very good and the kids' fettucini alfredo was not good either! Not harping, just letting you now! :)"
