“Now that's Italian!!”
Reviewed July 25, 2014

We went to Buca on recommendation of business colleagues in the local area. Initially thought the prices were a little high until we figured out it was family style and the servings feed 2 to 4 people depending on size. Delicious calimari appetizer and the Fruita de Mare was spectacular! Our waitress took great care of us throughout the night. Oh yeah, the Sangria was great with the meal! I would go out of my way to eat here again.

“Great Food If you're not in a hurry”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

This restaurant's walls are covered in photos of Italian celebrities and other Italian memorabilia and painted red. The interior is warm, inviting, and slightly cluttered. Booths, tables in several dining rooms and a bar provide a variety of seating opportunities. Dining is family style with 2 sizes of platter options: 2 servings or 4 servings. Our group of 4 ordered all small sizes of salad, antipasti, bread basket, veggie, meat, and pasta dishes to share. We had plenty of food, and it was all delicious. We had no room for dinner. The wait staff was very friendly-- really a tad too friendly--and service was a bit slow, though we were in no hurry. The location a few blocks from Monument Circle couldn't be more convenient.

35 minute wait for a god awful pizza. Oh my god the taste made me heave. Pizza boxed and now outside my hotel room. God help the person who picks it up. What a waste of money.

The Indianapolis Buca di Beppo has windows! Ask for any of the dining rooms that look out on the street scene or the outdoor seating. Christina was a great personality and made the meal enjoyable. Four people were well filled with two small entrees with a small salad is all you need. Lots of good quality food. Only issue is the salad was delivered after the entrees. It worked but would have been better with a standard delivery. Reasonable price for four with a bottle of wine at $115 including tip.
