We were here for my wifes birthday and had a great time. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We have been to Buca's in Maple Grove and we liked this one much better. Or was it the downtown atmosphere. Either way we loved this place and we will be back

I was in town visiting my son who lives nearby this restaurant so we tried it. The ambiance is fun. Saw the Pope table! The food was very good. We had the Manicotti and Baked Ziti with chicken. Garlic cheese bread was too die for. Just beware on the weekends there are no lunch specials. We had to order family... More

The food just did not taste right. No spices and everything tasted the same. We will try this place again, because sometimes a new chef comes in a makes a big change.

The food is no doubt cooked really well but be mindful of the fact that this place is not good for a couple or stag entry. The amount of food served to you will be really more than what a normal person can eat. so plan you visit to this if you are in a big group. You can sure... More

They have lots of options, and I got the ravioli. Very yummy and the servings sizes are huge, you should have leftovers! :)

Against my better judgement we had dinner at Buca in Burnsville. It had been quite some time since we were there, so hoped that the experience would be better this time. I will say the host, hostess and our waiter were wonderful! They were upbeat, attentive and working hard. The place was packed, which may have contributed to our poor... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our family dinner last night at Buc di Beppo celebrating my husband's birthday. Dwight is a fabulous waiter and made the evening very special. All of the food was fabulous which is a huge complement since our last Italian meal was in Italy. We will definitely return.

We made a return visit (well, actually two) to Buca di Beppo after eating here a couple years ago. This time we had a 15-month-old in tow. We were seated promptly, service was quick and our server (I wish I had gotten her name) was excellent with our son. My husband and I split the chicken and spicy sausage ziti... More

Eden Prairie location is amazing, this one not so much. After coming here to try it after eating regularly at the EP location, we were dissapointed. Food was mediocre, eggplant was not cooked, so very tough. Macaroni was full of liquid as it had not been drained properly. We always love Buca but this location is a flop.
