Intimate restaurant with good selection, attentive staff and a great wine selection. We went as a business meeting and they kept the food and drink coming.

Even before one opened in Maple Grove, Buca di Beppo was one of my all time favorite places to eat. And when they opened their doors here, the same great food came with them. That was then and this is now. Very bland. All pasta (not enough sauce/goodies). Fact is, I don't EVER go there anymore and it makes me... More

The food was excellent,but the service was beyond poor, and it was a Tuesday night?? I'd hate to go on a weekend. We had a reservation for our special evening, by the time we received our drinks we had time to read the menu 3 times over & the ice was already well on it's way to melted in my... More

Over the years we have eaten here a number of times and we have been pleased with the quality, quantity and value. That has changed. We had an awful lunch...both of us had different kinds of chicken and for both of us we agreed the quality had diminished to the point that one entree not eaten. We both had Cesar... More

I've eaten here several times with a few different groups so this review is based on 5 different visits over the last few years, with the most recent being in December 2015. I like the atmosphere with the walls covered in interesting memorabilia and the restaurant divided into several smaller rooms with a few tables each and some tables are... More

We went with 2 other couples and this place really does know how to serve groups. I loved the quirky little turns and corners of the seating arrangements. The atmosphere was not as formal as I expected. Our waiter was a hoot, he kept us laughing and was top notch on suggestions, answers and attentiveness. All of us had leftovers... More

I've been to Buca's more than once, and always have such good food - my personal favorite is the chicken saltimboca, but I've never had anything that I DIDN'T like! We were there on an "off" night in the middle of the week, and even though we had reservations for the main dining room, we were able to get seated... More

A great place for groups and/or couples. The food servings are very large and the menu choices many. Our waitress was patient (being that there were 13 women in the group who liked to talk ... a lot!, she was great.)
