My wife and I used to stop here often for a caesar salad with extra anchovies. Now there are no anchovies and it costs twice as much. We added chicken breast for $6 and got very little tasteless rubber chicken. Used to love Buca, but this time was very disappointed.

This place seems to be forgotten about as a lunch spot. I will say... if you need a place to sit down for lunch and not worry about not getting a table.. go here. Lunch menu is fantastic and priced right.

Food is very expensive and is very bland. Used to use it for business lunches but the prices hot straight through the roof and the food got very bland.

We have been to this Buca location many times over the years, as a couple, with more of the family, for work holiday parties, etc. The service is consistently friendly and the food is consistently good. I especially like the sangria (red AND white) and recommend getting the carafe instead of just one glass. There's not usually much of a... More

This place is always great, not sure what some other reviews are staying about being unhygienic and the food being too large, but this is the style of restaurant and there is nothing wrong with it. Food is always very good, one here we would never return to the dreaded Olive Garden, yuck. Prices with a coupon are excellent for... More

Service at Buca is very good and friendly but they need some more options - how about a Gorgonzola sauced dish? Or even build your own pasta with more options; i.e. sauces, meats/shrimp, veggies, pasta choice, etc...? We had the Veal Saltimbocca, Veal Parmigiana and Spaghetti Marinara with a meatball. All were good but nothing to rush back for. Tiramisu... More

The best food, wine, service and atmosphere, EVER. Salads are excellent, all pasta dishes and chicken Marsala are excellent. Fun for a birthdat, the wait staff sing to you.

Usually we really enjoy Buca, but this time was a not one of them. Service was poor. Food as not a hot as it should have been. Salad was missing ingredients. Then to top it off we were over charged. Doubt we'll be back any time soon.

We hit the mall of America for the weekend. I took my son and his family out for dinner to buca di beppo. He absolutely loved it. I think we tried about half the menu. We had the bruschetta, and insalata caprese for apps. Both were good. We tried the shrimp florentine pasta and manicotti for our main course. Those... More

We made reservations in advance. Old world decor with character. Friendly wait staff. Snappy service. Bruschetta app was delicious. Chicken Saltimbocca and Baked Ziti were made to perfection. More than enough food for four people. Food prep, quality and presentation is superb. Atmosphere is friendly and cozy. Loved the personality. Tiramisu is plentiful and tasty. Will return.
