“Very average Italian food, great service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

I have been to 3 other Buca di Beppos over the years and have found the experiences to be about the same. The food is generally pretty good, but not anything special. Service has always been good and was no exception with my visit to this location. I find the prices a bit high for the food. Atmosphere is a little loud and most appropriate for a group, more than an evening out with a significant other. Would go again if invited, but unlikely to seek it out of my own accord.

“We are done with this chain!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

We are done with this restaurant chain. Last night was the second time in row, in different locations that we have had poor service from Bucca di Beppo. My wife and I are tired of poor customer service that is due to an I could not care less attitude by the servers, grossly overpriced food, and a herd them in and get them out mentality. For chain restaurants Maggiano's in Indianapolis is way better quality, service, and pricing for the experience. The only positives about Bucca di Beppo are the photographs for the decorations.

Great place to eat with a large group of friends. Great food. This is a really fun place to spend an evening for a celebration or just to hang out.

“Lotta Food! Need to take a crowd”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

The food is good, traditional italian style selections, but served in family sized servings. You need a crowd, and everyone else that comes knows that, so expect lots of people a full tables and the resulting joyous noise. Not a place for a quite date - nor a simple snack.
