I've been subjected to this place several times, the first by my own choice, and after that only because my boss liked it so we always went here on company events. Their pasta is overcooked, overstuffed, and dried out. The sauces are gritty and dry, and the desserts are wayyyy too rich. Having actually been to Italy, I can say... More

We have been eating at Buca for years. Atmosphere is always fun. Food is always good. I am disappointed, however, in the bread that they are currently serving. It is not warm and not moist (in other words, room temp and dry). They used to serve a wonderful, large round that was quite delicious. The bread nowadays reminds me of... More

My wife and I had Pasta shells stuffed with spicy sausage, fresh Cesar salad, garlic cheese bread with REAL garlic, and some desert that my wife picked out, that not only was wonderful, but also made me a lot fatter. Family style serving. I have not complaints. I messed up my reservations, but they corrected it when we got there,... More

We had a takeout before from Buca de Beppo from another branch and the baked rigatoni was really tasty and delicious. So we headed out to the one in Eden Prairie, thinking all of them are the same. But to our dismay, the restaurant has a stale smell. I believe they are trying to recreate an old Italian Restaurant/Kitchen, but... More

Mary was our server - friendly and attentive. I hadn't been to a Buca in at least 10 years. It was still as good as I remember. Antipasto salad was delicious. We shared chicken Marsala & ziti for dinner and they were also very tasty. Lots of good leftovers for the next day.

We were there on a Saturday night for a graduation party for my nephew. We had a room set up for a party of 40 and I am amazed at how streamlined everything was! The salads were fresh, the bread warm and plentiful and the wine just kept coming! The chicken marsala is amazing! Everyone loved the baked ziti and... More

We get takeout from here about once a month. Always hot and tasty. The portions are huge and meant to be shared with a family. Its not cheap but you get what you pay for!

Our son-in-laws parents pick this place. We were all thrilled at the taste and presentation of the food. Staff was very pleasant and kept the drinks coming. What a special surprise to give the future bride and groom their own dessert to share. Everything was done top notch and look forward to going back on my next visit to MN

What fun - special celebration surprise, and we sat in the kitchen with the cooks. What a great night! Loved the food, the wine the service. And got to eat with a bunch of Italians who know the difference. Ask for the Cook's/Chef's table. Adds to the fun! Do wish they would add some gluten free pasta for those who... More

We've dined at Buca Restaurants in Milwaukee, Dntn Minneapolis, and southern St. Paul, in addition to this one. It is always great service, great food (tremendous menu consistency), in an interesting atmosphere.
