Great Family Style Restaurant in the heart of Indy

Years after my son's first visit to Indianapolis for the Final 4, his fond recollections of dinners here put it on our list of dining destinations when we travelled to Indianapolis for a college visit. The food and experience held up under the heavy weight of his expectations. The service was... read more

We decided to eat here my some of the good reviews posted here. When we were seated we were abandoned for about 15 minutes before someone decided they better check on us. There were 4 other tables seated in our area. Our drink orders were taken and brought about 15 minutes later. They finally took our food order and it... More

We had a large party 75+ people?!! (Kiwanis Convention State Dinner Night) No compliant to them but we were stacked in like sardines! :) The food was served family style--just like if you went there with your small family. The veal parm was the best! I'd order that again!

The food is always amazing, the service is always outstanding. This place beats out St. Elmo's in taste and service every time I've been here.

The food was good, not great and it is pretty pricey. it is a fun place to take a large group. The family style service is lots of fun.

A great venue for large groups. Be sure to order the Chicken Marsala and save room for one of their massive desserts. Yes, you have to share! :) Park at Circle Centre Mall instead of trying to find street space.

This place has good, not great Italian food. The ambiance is trying too hard and the food is average. The staff is always very friendly and speedy.

Great tastes with huge portions,when getting family style. The price has went up as the portions have gotten smaller so that's the biggest draw back. Still not a horrible deal but its just not the great deal it used to be.

Buca di Beppo is a cool Italian-American throwback serving family style plates to feed 2 or 4. Be warned, 'for two' means two large men! The portions are absolutely huge! We had the warm salad, mussels, and lasagna. All were good. We ordered the $13 brownie sundae; it was the largest sundae I have ever seen. Our party of four... More
