Great Place but Parking an issue

Have been here several times and it is always great, but parking is also almost always an issue. Recommend getting there early just to park. Also construction next door has made the situation even worse. But the food and serves are great.

My husband and son and I went to try this restaurant out with a coupon from Entertaintment Book. We had one of the best meals ever!! My son had spaghetti and meatballs and could not finish it all-a first. Hubby and I shared a dish that was mouthwatering terrific. I would not think twice about visiting again. With the menu...

This place offers family style dining in a funky atmosphere. Tacky would be an understatement, but it's a fun spot for families and large groups. The food is better than expected for the large portions and overall a very good value as leftovers are almost guaranteed!

My wife and I recently met long-time friends of ours from out-of-town at a local Buca di Beppo on New Years Eve. What a refreshing way to ring in the New Year. The family style pasta dishes were excellent and reasonably priced, but the highlight of the meal was actually our bruschetta appetizer. It was served in an oversized martini... More

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!
