Good Quality at a Good Price

Need a quick but good Italian meal while out shopping at the Galleria? Then Buca di Beppo is the place. Good solid fare at a decent price is what to expect. And the portions are generous.

First time to eat at this restaurant. Has been around for a number of years. The serving style is family style and your meal serves up for two. There is no ordering for one person. The food was delicious and filling, we had to take home some leftovers. the server was very informative and helpful on what to order. The... More

My wife and I enjoyed a fine lunch of chicken Marsala accompanied by a green salad topped with roasted red peppers, bread & olive oil, and some fine coffee during an unexpected stop for auto maintenance in Franklin. We visit Buca often in Minnesota, and found this location to offer equally great in terms of food, service and atmosphere. We... More

Before Saturday 12/19/15, I hadn’t been to Buca in several years. Now it will be several more before I choose to spend my money and TIME there. To celebrate a family birthday, we had reservations for 10 people at 5:30. They squeezed us into a back booth and slid another table over. No one wanted to sit in the far... More

On my first time here, I was impressed by the delicious food. We had a lot of attention as the waitress was training another one (who was kinda silly) so can you have too much service? The food was very good, ziti with marinara sauce and eggplant was actually more that we could handle. I would go back anytime to... More

I brought a group of 21 for my wife's birthday. We arrived before our reservation at 5:15. Except for bread and some few salads, most of our food did not arrive before 7:15. Some did not show up until 7:30. I met with the manager to express my concerns around 7:15 and for the first time that brought him to... More

Hadn't been to a Buca di Beppo in a long time. Used to be my daughter's favorite. We ordered her favorite dish, Macaroni Rosa and were eating along, daughter said sauce tasted different. We both bit into a piece of chicken in the dish and both felt it was old and tasted bad. Waiter sought out manager to take it... More

We went to Buca di Beppo for dinner and was not impressed at all. The food was mediocre and very over priced. We will not be going back for a second visit.

Repeat customer with expectations of similar goodness. Well as Yoda would say 'Disappointed in you I am'. The place was only half full. The service was incredibly slow. I watched a freshly poured pint sit and die on the bar for 15 minutes. No joke 15 minutes. Also where are the Short Ribs? Food was OK nothing as good as... More

Get there early or you will not find a parking space near the place we had to walk two restaurants over down the way. Food was yummy but expensive. Not sure I'd return since it was not the best Italian I've ever had but the desserts were HUGE. ONE ORDER IS FOR TWO GUESTS TO SHARE! ;-)
