Will not leave here hungry

Family style dining works well for larger groups. Lunch individual portions are larger than most people can eat. Suggest even at dinnertime ask for lunch sized portions.

We came here for some great Italian food and we were not disappointed. We ordered the broccoli and the eggplant parmigiana. Both were great. We also had a carafe of their Pinot Grigio. Very nice.

One of our nights in Indianapolis we were on a bit of a time constraint for dinner. My friend was hungry for Italian and a half block from our hotel was Buca di Beppo. Having eaten at Buca in Pittsburgh and other cities, I suggested we go there. With the Elks convention in town, large groups were waiting for tables... More

This is one of my favorite experiences in eating in a new city. The restaurant is designed to serve several people with one dish. We had a large group and ordered a variety of foods then shared each. We all went back full and happy. The restaurant is covered in memorabilia and Italian themes. I will definitely eat there again.

I used to go every few months. This time wasn't as great. The pastas are still large, but lacked sauce. Weird. Service was okay, but slow with the large birthday party in the room.
