Buca di Beppo - Downtown Indianapolis
Food was excellent but itFood was excellent but it did feel like we were part of a process. At least three different people brought our courses and they had to figure out who got what. It is a nice place and good food for the price but it feels like they took a little of the personal touch out. We had 5:30 reservations so the restaurant wasn't that busy.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a familyMeet my son and his girlfriend from CO for the weekend. Great place to share different entree's and wonderful service.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for visitorsBuca di Beppo is a unique experience because of its "history", friendly service and fine food. It is not like any other restaurant in town, small rooms, lots of pictures to view, and of course, a fine menu.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup DiningI had 7 people in my group who didn't even all know each other but the family dinner experience was comfortable for all and gave people opportunity for interaction while enjoying delicious food.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, OK foodOur server, Matthew, was fantastic. The restaurant was jammed, yet he was able to personalize his service to us. We were somewhat surprised to learn that there were no freebies offered to the birthday celebrant at our table; I think they missed out on additional sales with that policy.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingHad a reservation for 8:30 was literally in there for 10 minutes and already had my food and it was awesome!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good Italian food.This restaurant serves family-style food, so either go with someone who has similar taste, or a large enough group to get some variety. The food is very good, and so is the wine. It's a bit pricey, but not exorbitant. The atmosphere is relaxed and festive.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day treat!Took mom to Buca for dinner in Mother's Day. She really enjoyed the food and we had a great time. Beware though, at this location there is very limited parking and we had to pay to park in the adjacent parking garage.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery sastifactory service.The restaurant has good atmosphere, the quality of the food, is always been the best.

It was big enough for the family and friends that attended.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOpinionI attended Buca on a busy Saturday night, luckily we had reservations or it would have taken a good amount of time to be seated due to business. Our waiter was very friendly and checked up on us whenever he was not at another table. Our food was quickly and it was delicious. For how busy it was that night, our waiter was very attentive. It was a overall great experience5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!This was our first trip to Boca and we were very happy with the experience. The food was amazing and the waitress was very knowledgeable about the menu and suggestions for first timers to try! Will most definitely be going back!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday funWe celebrated our son's 6th birthday with a trip to Indy. We advised Buca di Beppo ahead of our celebration. They had a birthday card ready and all the staff came to sing to him. Our waiter, Jason, was fantastic, friendly, and treated us great. The food was very tasty and more than enough for our small group. Loved the ambiance.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGlad they take reservationsWe had a group of 3 adults and 9 teens and we were happy to find a restaurant that took our reservation. We were seated immediately. Our wait person Corey was terrific and the food was delicious. The kids loved the apple gorgonzola salad along with the pasta dishes and dessert plate. All was excellent.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite restaurants!Buca's has always been one of our favorite Italian restaurants. The food was delicious with ample quantities. The waiter was personable, friendly and very attentive. Everything was great with the exception of the child sitting at the table next to us whose behavior was unacceptably noisy. The waiter was very apologetic although it was not any of his doing.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHandled it with ease...I nearly always eat here before marathons and half-marathons that start in downtown Indianapolis. Knowing that, Buca is ALWAYS busy and ALWAYS crowded. I accept this fact and know that I may have to wait a few minutes beyond my reservation to get a seat (never longer than 15mins). As per that, they were SLAMMED on this night; people waiting in the hall, outside, and around the greeter. They handled the crowd pretty well - sat people as soon as tables opened up and as close to their reservation time as could be accommodated. We arrived a few minutes early and only had to wait a few minutes after our resv time.
The food was good and the service was good considering the crowd. It was noisy but that's to be expected.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I took 5 teenagersMy husband and I took 5 teenagers to Buca's to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday.

There should be a warning on the menu: objects are larger than they appear! We got the brownie sundae and while the picture looks like a small sundae in a margarita glass, this one must have been a giant's glass. It had 7 scoops of ice cream and piles and piles of brownies and whipped cream. That wasn't even the best dessert, the chocolate cake was even better (and also super sized.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but noisyFood is fantastic and the portions hugh. Being at a table adjacent to three "special event" sing alongs was a bit much. Noise level is really too loud to talk.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Italian food and plentyGreat Italian food and plenty of it. It's a bit crowded which leads to a high noise level.
