Buca di Beppo is where all the residents of Maple Grove, MN head when they crave their favorite Italian entrees. Located on the corner of Main Street and Elm Creek Boulevard, lots of our guests come to us after they’ve worked up an appetite at nearby Elm Creek Disc Golf Course or Three Rivers Park. That’s because our heaping, family style helpings can handle any appetite and our guests always feel like they’re part of the family.

I ordered ice tea and it was brought to me with no ice in it at all.
The Caesar salad was very wilted and soggy, I’ve never had that happen here before.
The rest of the food was great. I think it was just a busy night and our waitress was stressed out.

They didn’t hold our open table reservation?
They called to confirm. I said yes we would be there. We show up and there is no table?
Not sure why they work with Open Table.

Jose (our server) was FANTASTIC. Even tho some items were out, he helped us by finding other things that we loved. He was attentive, responsive, and made dining at Bucca’s fun!

New at this Buca location. Seated in a room with two large table guests...very loud. They ran out of calamari which is always the reason that I go. Took a long time to get our check when we were done eating and wanting to leave. However, willing to give it another try on a different time and day. Perhaps, there would be a different outcome.

We were there to celebrate a birthday. Table right beside had unruly children who bounced up and down, were in and out of seats and parents were oblivious. Food wasn't particularly great but served the purpose. Antipasto salad was good, though a little too wet.

Food was good. Service was ok. Kitchen or service staff goofed up order and brought wrong entree. Offered us to eat at no charge while right product was being prepared. By time the combination was done and brought to our table we (party of 4) where no longer hungry. Other party (2) took it home. Our Lasagna ordered was very good as was Caesar Salad and hot bread. Oh.. one more crazy, a wall picture suddenly came down on top of our heads at end of meal. No harm as foam board mounted.

Super laid back server - like a friend helping me enjoy dinner. It felt more like a small local Italian neighborhood restaurant than a chain, which was refreshing.
Food was appropriately hot/cold & fresh.
Sangria was good & refreshing (although….I think the carafe was a bit overpriced & wouldn’t order again).
Attentive staff from the hostess to the busier.
Overall, I was very happy with my experience!

We loved the private room for our daughters birthday celebration. The appetizers were great and the meal was great!! Need to come back and try out some more food options. We had the spaghetti and meatball (YUM), penne pasta in a vodka sauce, a cheesy rigatoni and a really yummy chicken with capers, artichoke hearts and onion in a lemony sauce. Mmm! For appetizers we had two different salads, bruschetta and fried mozzarella. The basic salad and bruschetta were my personal favs! Can't go wrong with any of them though.
We had great service from our server and the manager, Deb. Thanks for making it a fun evening for our birthday girl!!

Absolutely the worst experience I’ve ever had. The weighted was quick to greet us once we sat down but that’s about the only positive thing in that whole experience. I had to ask about the bread with olive oil at least 4 times and it didn’t arrive until after our meal arrived. I got my order for my son first which was fine but I had no napkins, no silverware and our drinks were empty in our table for long time. Tracking her down was impossible. Once she arrived with the main meal I had to wait another 5 or so minutes which felt like forever where I had no water, no silverware and my sons drink was empty. Just terrible experience and I will most likely never ever come back again. You have lost me as a customer.

The spicy pizza was bland, my guest agreed. Still good, just wasn't spicy. I would have said something but our time was limited (closed early due to Brooklyn Center riots) and I was in deep conversation with my guest. My drink was delicious and Krista, my server, was friendly.

I would give 5/5, but they were out of a lot of drinks and food (at 6pm on a Saturday) and their system was down, which they were not prepared for or able to handle very gracefully. Otherwise, delish and will go back!

Overall, had a great experience! Service was phenomenal (Epic Jose had us laughing the entire time we were there) and the food was very tasty! Only tiny little complaint I could give is that the menu says a small could feed 3, and I would say it feeds closer to 2. We could have just been pigging out because it was SO good, but 5 of us easily finished 2 small pasta portions 😁

Would like to see MORE CUSTOMERS even during the pandemic. Help these people stay in business. Servers were AWESOME and even sang Happy Birthday to me! We stayed a long time. Not a single table was in use when we arrived at 5 p.m., but they had a handful of tables when we left, only about 5% use. LOVED IT!!! Make your plans to go.

It’s been a few years since we have eaten at Bucca. The food was a pleasant surprise. Very good flavor and well prepared. We were surprised that most of the menu choices were for sharing, especially during these COVID times.

There were 6 of us and we ended up sharing a large salad, two entrees and a side. Good value. And the choices were diverse enough to please the whole crowd. The service was friendly. Disappointingly ineffective use of masks, though.

Out of the entire restaurant they had all the customers in one section which did not appear to provide adequate social distancing. I wondered why they didn’t have us spread out more seeing that the rest of the place was completely empty. They did comp a drink for us which was appreciated after tasting and not being what I was expecting it to be. Overall it was okay but I don’t think I will be returning any time soon with so many other options near home. Would prefer to get takeout next time from here.
