Best

The restaurant is purely gaudy to the point that it's fun and entertaining to be there. Reading the "Miss Buca" profiles on the walls are hilarious and seeing kids cover their eye...

Worst

I think bucca di peppo is a nice experience for some place different. the quantity is definitely there but I think there are a lot of better Italian resturants in the area. I agre...

Chopped antipasto 3/20/2012

We absolutely love your chopped antipasto. We were drawn to it because most restaurants put big chunks of hard, white lettuce in it and I always have to further "prepare" my salad before I can eat it. We pick up a salad every time we have steaks and we get it every time we come to eat, however the last two salads have had a few pieces approximately six inches by one inch by one inch making it less appealing. Could this be improved upon? Thanks for your time and consideration. Pros: null Cons: null more

Great place for friends 1/26/2009

In short if you have a group of friends or a large crowd this is a great place to go eat. The service is good and the food is great served in a family style format more

Family Value Good Food 1/14/2009

The restaurant is purely gaudy to the point that it's fun and entertaining to be there. Reading the "Miss Buca" profiles on the walls are hilarious and seeing kids cover their eyes passing the peeing fountain is always funny. The waiters always seem on top of things and are very friendly, one was even so honest as to bring out a $20 accidentally dropped on the floor. While Buca's is a chain and food may be "processed", by no means does this mean the food is not tasty. Having been there many times I find the food delicious, and where else can you get a meatball bigger than your fist cooked to perfection? The salads are always fresh, the pasta heavy, the garlic kicking and the tiramisu to die for, everything you would expect in an Itallian restaurant. If you order the regular size be prepared to have enough for 3-4 people to eat, or a lot to bring home. Joining their e-club gets you great offers and a free dessert on your birthday month. Their Buca To Go curbside pick up is great, my sister has three children and seems to order from Buca's constantly. I gave it five stars because it's fun, the food is good, and the meals aren't overpriced. If you want to feel like your in your "fun but crazy" Itallian aunt's house, this is the place to go, and you're guaranteed to like it. Pros: The bathroom art always makes me want to decorate my bathroom the same way Cons: Wolf Road Traffic more

Menu change but still a good night! 4/12/2008

The Minneapolis downtown Bucca was really crowded on Saturday night. We chose Bucca's to dine as we have always loved the tortellini along with the garlic mashed potatoes. Noting it was not on the menu, we asked our waitress and she stated she was very sorry and that she had head the complaint several times previously. She did go into the kitchen to see if they had any tortellini that could be cooked for us.(they didn't). Which means it could not have been long taken off menu. We ordered the checken fettucenine and it was very good and we were pleasantly full. But just so you know, it was NOT as good a tortellini!!! Please bring this item back to the menu if possible. Thank you for your website and keep running a great resturant!! more

Gourmet price for pre-cooked food. 2/13/2007

Bucca Di Beppo is yes, a chain, and thus not fresh, generally overdone, and premade. We ordered the gnocci w/ marinara and the chicken marsala. The gnocci was decent, but slightly overcooked, and the sauce was fairly tasty, but the chicken marsala was not good. When the Chicken marsala came to the table it smelled like somebody had poured maple syrup over the chicken instead of marsala wine, and tasted like a sweet and sour sauce that you would order from a chinese restaurant. The food is all served family style, with family size prices, which means nobody really gets what he or she wants, and everyone still pays as though he had his own personal chef. Yet, I would recommend this restaurant to large families with lots of kids, since they can share, and kids are used to not having much say in what they eat. Pros: good for families Cons: food not good enough for the price more

Food excellent, family style meals bad. 10/17/2005

The food is absolutely wonderful. The place is always packed, which is a good sign. However, there is no option for individuals to order single portion meals. Everything is family-style (feeds a minimum of 2-3 people). I won't be eating there alone, because I will have to pay for a meal that feeds 2-3 people. If you order chicken parmesan and want spaghetti with that, then you are going to have to order the spaghetti separately and pay for it. The prices are steep, but again the food is wonderful. I found the children's menu to be very good and at a good price. Pros: Quality of food, Interesting interior, Friendly service Cons: Family style eating, Menu is a la carte, Prices are steep more

Ciao! 9/1/2003

Great food and LOTS of it-we went as a party of 9 and (2 families) and brought home enough leftovers for another meal to feed all!! more

different 5/30/2003

I think bucca di peppo is a nice experience for some place different. the quantity is definitely there but I think there are a lot of better Italian resturants in the area. I agree verdiles is very good and very popular. Pros: an experience, ok if you like doggie Cons: too much food, hard to hold the menu more

BEST RESTUARAUNT I'VE EVER BEEN TO! 1/21/2003

The atmoshpere was wonderful, the food was awesome! The waitstaff was so personable and fun! Especially when it came to my mom's birthday! It was a real Italian family restaurant and made the whole restuarant like a big party! I had a wonderful time! more

What a Rip-Off!! 11/30/2002

This national chain features very large volumes of mediocre, overpriced Italian food. There are any number of great locally owned Italian restaurants in our region offering far better value and better tasting food. Plus, the decor is almost an insulting satire of Italian - at least I was offended and I'm not of Italian heritage. Avoid Buco di Beppo at all costs. Cons: Overpriced, Nondescript food, Insulting more

Fun! 11/4/2002

This restaurant is a lot of fun. A definite yes for large groups of people. While the food is a little above mediocre the restaurant is wonderfully decorated. Every inch of the wall and sometimes ceiling is adorned with pictures of some Italian related or things or just plain cute ideas. This restaurant is a great place to take friends. Take out is available but not delivery. The food is served family style. Each dish is huge. You order a few dishes for the whole table. more

Old Italian Critic 9/27/2002

Bucca is a chain restaurant, although each branch is owned independently. They provide excelent food with a family fun atmosphere which is sure to accomodate any hungry driven children. The traditional marinara has a bold flavor and is obviously made with fresh tomatoes, not frozen. The garlic bread is my favorite, but bring an appettite or your sure to bring doggy bags home. Only two warnings, too many onions on chicken parm sauce, and tomatoe salad can contian tomatoes that are not quite ripe enough, other than that you're sure to have a pleasant eating experience...enjoy, bon appettite more

Have you ever eaten Italian? 9/20/2002

The food is just terrible. You get a hint when the give you the kitchen tour - boy chefs. With so much good Italian food around here it is a wonder that anyone goes here. more
