    My wife and I were very pleased with our special occasion dinner at Buca di Beppo, (30 year anniversary). I selected the restaurant and made the reservation online with "Open Table". The restaurant was not crowded in fact in was quite empty. However the service was great, the servers gave us time to look the menu over and make our decision. We had their Mozzarella Garlic bread as an appetizer and it was fantastic. For dinner we chose their "Quattro al Forno" and this dish was absolutely wonderful...! Oh and I forgot to mention the wonderful Mojitos that we had for drinks. We would definitely come back to Buca in the near future, great atmosphere and great service, what else can you ask for?

    My family and I have visited Bucca in 3 different states, experiencing consistency with every visit. I decided to book a table at the Greenwood, IN location for a lunch that I was having with a friend. We both live in Bloomington, IN, so it's not like this restaurant is next door! We had a fabulous lunch, with an excellent waitress (Summer was her name) and it was worth every mile we drove. The mozzarella bread was wonderful and the cheese manicotti and eggplant parmigiana were superb. They serve their pasta al dente, as it should be. I have always been able to say, "I've never had a bad meal at Bucca!" and after visiting the Greenwood restaurant, I can still honestly say that.

  • POPE Room-too many reservations
    pinktulipmonkey
    Dined on 10/15/2014
    Our server was EXCELLENT, and so was our food. My son has wanted to sit in the pope room for a long time, and I made a request for his 16th birthday.We loved it! It is a FUN room to dine in. We were alerted that there was another party at 7:30 right away. Our reservation was at 6, with 10 people orginally. I had 4 people cancel. We felt very rushed, especially with a 1 year old. I have NO IDEA what we would have done if all 10 people had showed up. There would have been no way. What if we wanted coffee, dessert, or just simply visit? I don't like to eat on a time limit, especially on a special occassion. The next reservation should have been made later, or simply another night.

    My family celebrated my Dad's birthday. The dining staff were on the ball at the Greenwood, Indiana location. Service was top notch. It was an intimate dining atmosphere in the poster room so it wasn't loud for my dad's afternoon out. I liked for a birthday they didn't make a complete fool out of my dad, so for a birthday I would strongly consider this location, if you have had bad birthday experiences dining out.

    I would 100% recommend the food and the service! The food was superb! Our waiter James was perfect! But I would not recommend taking families there at all! They had photos on the wall of famous people as well as non famous people and almost all the pictures and paintings had women almost "hanging out" of their tops or I saw one photo of the Monalisa painting with here shirt off! Because of those kind of pictures I will never go back or take my family back or any business clients or partners there, ever!

    We prefer to dine at Buca di Beppo for special occasions such as Mother's Day or for birthday's. We also like to bring the extended family here for supper when they visit. The food is delicious and the atmosphere is fun & comfortable. We also love the eclectic mix of decor. We have eaten here dozens of times and have never left feeling disappointed. If something isn't right, (rare occurrence) the server fixes it quickly. We love Buca di Beppo!!!

  • Mother's 70th Birthday Party
    Jar1234
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    I was disappointed with how the reservation worked out. I had made my initial request online 2-3 weeks prior to my mother' Birthday. I specifically request the Pope room as our party of 15 would be too large and spread out at a regular table(s). I received a call from the restaurant on the day of our reservation to see if we could move our reservation from 6:30 to 8:30. As a lot of the guests were from out of town and had long drives in front of them after dinner, this was not an option. The ultimate frustration came when I went to the restroom around 7:30, the Pope room was still empty. It was still empty when we left. Lesson learned, don't make reservations online for special request.

    I visited Buca for lunch with a small group of people after attending a college graduation nearby. I had asked around for recommendations and Buca was named. As expected, the portions were large but were delicious. We already knew we'd be taking half (or more) home. One member of my group ate pizza and said it was one of the best he's had. The restaurant was not super busy at lunchtime so I probably did not have to make reservations. One member mentioned that he'll be back because he enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant.

    The food was what we expected. Not the best in the world, but pretty good overall. Our waitress was a little devoid of personality, and that made it not quite as wonderful as it could have been. The manager was nice. It was VERY hard to find a bathroom, and when you are navigating with 3 little boys in tow, that can be an issue. The Men's room floor was very slippery and my 5 year-old slipped in there while walking in. It was a quick tumble, but could have been worse.

There is no seating area for families waiting, which is very hard on the elderly and parents with small children. Management did provide a free appetizer, but would rather have had a faster seating service than a free app.

    The love some of the dishes at Buca, but I don't know that I'll go back. They are really skimpy on sauces. I ordered a Fra Diovalo to go and there was literally no sauce, just pasta. Very Disappointed. For any to go order you need to check it before you leave. This is the third time I've had the same problem with them. Even ordering in you have so ask for extra sauce. Skimpy. Skimpy. Skimpy. Who wants to eat plain pasta?

    We were celebrating a child's birthday. The server was very friendly, but service was a bit slow. The food was served hot, but the sauce in each dish was bland. The pasta part was good, but all 4 dishes with different sauces had little flavor. This was a party of 9 and everyone in the party made the same comment on the sauce.

    We have been to Buca's before on several occasions and the foods has always been very good along with great service. Our evening at the Greenwood store this time was a little different. The server (Ward) was great and represented the restaurant well. The food, however, with the exception of the Chicken Saltimbocca and chopped salad, was totally unremarkable. Someone had the clams in white sauce and someone else had meatballs and pasta in marinara. Chef needs to get out his spice rack and go to work in that kitchen. The food was certainly not awful but just unremarkably bland. We will go back and try something different next time.

    Traveled 40 miles to this restaurant for our 24th Wedding Anniversary. Was seated in a room with 30 volleyball players (age 16-17) parents, and coaches. Noise level was unbelievable, could not hear my wife from across the table. One parent was up taking pictures, blocking the aisle for waitresses, taking pictures in front of tables of people trying to eat. Very rude. One table complained to the manager, who talked to the coach about the noise. Coach talked to the players but it did no good. This team should have been placed in a room by themselves. My wife and I spent $136.00, we were going to the mall afterwards for shopping but both had headaches and went straight home.
