Buca di Beppo - Maple Grove
Great night outWe loved the variety and quality of the menu. We were there for a birthday party but it would be great for any occasion. The staff is superior.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Good as UsualVery good food. Portion sizes made for sharing. It was my wife's birthday and they brough her a small desert and candleabra and sang to her loud enough for the whole restaurant to hear. They have great tables for groups including the "pope's table" and a table in the kitchen.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMKitchen Table Birthday DinnerOur group of six was able to sit at the table that is inside the kitchen. This had its pluses and minuses. We truly enjoyed seeing the chef's do our thing and getting lots of attention from our waiter since he was near quite often. But, this Buca gives a "kitchen tour" to all guests who haven't been there before, so we had several looky-loos come by during our meal. So, I don't recommend this option for shy or private people. Another plus/minus is that we got to see and smell many dishes that I wouldn't think to order...so I learned about some things I'd like to try in the future. But, if something burned or was too spicy, we got smells of that, too! The atmosphere was super fun, our service was excellent, our food was awesome!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFun Had By AllWe went to Buca to celebrate our son's birthday. There were 5 of us and we sat at the table in the kitchen. We had a good time but we thought the table was too small for passing and sharing food. Our waiter was Jose and he was great. We are already regulars but we'll definitely be back. It's a favorite of our family because everyone can find something that makes them happy!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyThe food is so look good here. It doesn't matter what you order, it's all delish.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated my daughter's 18thCelebrated my daughter's 18th birthday with some of her closets friends. They had an awesome time.

Our server was excellent, very upbeat and fun, very attentive. The food was absolutely phenomenal, loved every dish we tried (Mixed Green Salad, Shrimp Florentine, Chicken Saltimbocca, Stuffed Shells, Baked Rigatoni and of course, Cannoli for dessert). Can't wait to go again!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAfter several visits, we areAfter several visits, we are very pleased with Buca.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the antipasta salad andLove the antipasta salad and the chicken carbanara is EXCELLENT.
The spicey sausage in the baked ziti is a little too spicey for our tastes4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMKid Friendly, Family FavoriteWe always love Buca, it is the #1 requested restaurant from our 3 & 5 year olds especially. The family style food is always great, although we order the same thing every time we go. It is hard to stray from the spaghetti and giant meatballs and the cheesy garlic bread and the giant piece of decadent chocolate cake that is large enough for the entire family. The house Chianti is surprisingly good too. Service is great, friendly and timely. My only complaint is that although the servers claim that they use natural ingredients, I have yet for anyone to be able to produce an ingredient list for me. My girls are sensitive to artificial ingredients, and as of yet, they have not had a reaction. (We skip the brightly colored celebration cake.)4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThere were four of us havingThere were four of us having lunch. We ordered the Bruschetta as an appetizer and it was a very large platter - more than enough for four people. The two of us ordered the spaghetti/salad lunch combo with primavera sauce. Two ordered the rigatoni/salad combo. We all agreed everything was very tasty and we would definitely go back again.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMwe sat in the bar which iwe sat in the bar which i always like. much quieter.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a large party with myI had a large party with my family and I knew Buca could handle it and that it was something everyone would enjoy.
