Buca di Beppo - Milwaukee
Long timeA friend suggested we go to Buca's for dinner. There were six of us and none of us had been there in about twenty years. We all agreed it would be fun. We were greeted by friendly faces when walking in the door. We were promptly seated. Drink orders were taken and then the fun...what to choose for dinner. We talked about the large portions we all remembered and wanted to be careful placing our order. Well we each ordered an entree and we ordered one salad. W enjoyed it all. The portions (both small and large) were just enough for us. We enjoyed conversation. W had fun and decided we would come back. Thank you Buca for a wonderful experience. The Manager thanked us for coming which was a nice touch.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMDining with FamilyWe really enjoyed our family style dinner. The food was delicious. The wine was perfect. And, the wait staff were very personable.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great meal!! TheWe had a great meal!! The serving portions are huge and reasonably priced. When they say it will feed 2, there is enough for 3-4. We will be back again!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIcky seating areaWe were put in the Flower Room. Sat us at a table right next to a serving room where waitresses would go in and out of. Only thing separating us was a curtain that would not stay closed. Also the AC kept kicking in and it shouldn't have even been on. It made it uncomfortable to eat. I would go back, but would not want to sit in that room.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMif you like pasta you justif you like pasta you just got to try Bucca and if you had an experance like we did you will be back----dennis5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerMy hubby and I went for our fourth anniversary dinner here and loved it! The fried mozzarella was magnificent and the fresh bread was soft and delightful. We ordered a side order of fettuccine alfredo and the manicotti. The alfredo was superb, and my only not so good thing was the manicotti was a little dry and tough from sitting under the heat lamp in the kitchen for a bit to long. Everything else was great, and when my husband mentioned it they offered to give us a free dessert. However we were to full to eat anything, so we didn't order one. We will def be going back though!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMfamily nightthis was a great opportunity for our group to celebrate my son's acting debut. kids are welcomed and the staff was awesome. i did feel the spaghetti and meatballs should have had more sauce -- it was a little dry. but the apple gorganzloa salad was to die for. i also think if your group has more than 5 guests, they should be allowed to use more than one coupon. i was especially appreciative of the variety of choices on the kid's menu. thanx bucca!!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day LunchWe had a great time! The food was excellent; our waitress was very nice. We were a little surprised that they automatically put an 18% gratuity on a party of 7 (we usually thought it was included on a party of 8 or more). Usually I round up to the nearest dollar (we typically tip between 15-20%), I didn't want to spend time figuring another 2% so we left it at what the put down.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day LunchMy sons took me to Buca's to celebrate my day. Food was great....company was great....service was great....one of my sons is in a wheelchair....they give him special attention..which was very nice.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA Family FavoriteLoved coming to Buca di Beppo with my family! Everyone enjoyed the food and you don't feel rushed. We all had time to reconnect and talk and absolutely loved the Linguine Frutti de Mare. I didn't get a chance to try the Shrimp Florentine and the Ravioli, but I heard they were excellent as well.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mothers DayTook my folks there for mothers day. First time for either one of them. The meal was great and my mother was even talking about the food the next day. The sever we had (Austin) was great, we had a group of 9 with three kids and never went without anything. She was a wonderful addition to our visit. Highly recommend this place to all. If you live in or near Milwaukee its a must. Thanks Bucca's we will be back soon.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBucca di Beppo- MilwaukeeI am a Sophomore at Milwaukee School of Engineering. I have been going to Bucca di Beppo several times a year since I've been at school. The pricing seems high at first but isn't so bad when you realize how it works. As a broke college student, I cannot afford to go very often but more as a treat (getting through the quarter, finals week, birthday, Mother's day). The plates cost around twenty bucks each but I can get 3+ meals out of them and I am a growing young man. The service is always great and it is hard to choose off of the menu. It all sounds great. I would recommend Bucca di Beppo to everyone that likes Italian food.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place2nd time I've visited and I will be back very soon. Nice place to sit back and enjoy the food5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMtook my wife and kids fortook my wife and kids for some family style Italian food. more than accomodating for our Vegetarian lifestyle.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMProm DinnerIncredible food,a truly amazing place to experience for me and my group.

Had such a great time and most all of the servers were so friendly and timely. We were asked multiple times that our food was okay and about our experience.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Bucca di Beppo. WentLove Bucca di Beppo. Went for a family birthday party. Food was great as usual but I was distressed that we went there for a birthday celebration and they were out of brownies that they use to make their huge dessert and that they no longer use a candalabra for birthday celebrations.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent!

Fantastic! Great experience for a special occasion.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!!! Terrible timeGreat food!!! Terrible time with reservations. This is our 2nd time having our reservation "lost" or changed.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI would offer mild or spicyI would offer mild or spicy Italian sausage with your pasta and sausage dishes. The spicy is too spicy for me. We had a group of 15 and with winer and desert, the bill was under $400.00 and that included the tip. Great value.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMEventhough there were manyEventhough there were many people present we received our food in a timely manner. Kelsea was our server/waitress and performed well considering she had many tables to care for. We are not from Milwaukee but entertained a couple who live there. The prices were reasonable for a party of four. We will return!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMOur boisterous group of siblingsOur boisterous group of siblings felt comfortable relaxing and having lively conversation.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMappropriateIt was a very noisy night at the Buca - the Buca girls were singing at the tables, and everybody was cheering and shouting, celebrating all of their miscellaneous birthdays and corporate occasions. I suppose they had a good time, but what my wife and I had in mind was a quiet wedding anniversary dinner. the anniversary dinner was a lot like the marriage, with all the yelling and commotion - i suppose it was appropriate. I'll go again, some day.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Had way tooFood was great. Had way too much of it. I wish our waitress would have encouraged us to go smaller. They should also show the size the large and small bowls. Holy cow! Also, one of the servers dropped sauce onto a iphone of one of the people in our group. We got an apology, but a comped drink or dessert would have been nice. It was not just a drop either. The whole phone was covered. The phone was fine before we left, but u never know what happens a little while later.
Overall it was a lot of fun! And the place and people were great!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a nice relaxing time withHad a nice relaxing time with family for lunch, quiet no rush, food was great as always.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time for my birthday!Had a great time for my birthday!
