“Pedestrian visit”
Reviewed January 10, 2013

Having had a fantastic experience at the Buca in San Diego a few years back, we hoped to have a comparable experience at the Burnsville Buca this January afternoon. But, from the service to the food, it was pretty ordinary. We learned later that they were gearing for a large group coming in later, so perhaps that explained why our waiter seemed rushed in his handling of us. And, for flavor, the food was pretty bland. Probably won't return to this store again.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

We ate at Buca di Beppo for T-day noon dinner. We had just flown in as well as our son & 2 grandchildren & were meeting 3 relatives who lived in the MSP area. They had the tukey dinner special and really enjoyed it. We had the Chicken & Sausage Ziti--it was excellent! It is served family style and the bowl looked big and full enough for a table full of people rather than the 3 adults we were. It had spinach, tomatoes, peppers, onions and garlic in it as well as the chicken, sausage and Ziti pasta. We had enough for noon and enough for leftovers in the evening--which was great.

“Good place for a group birthday celebration”
Reviewed October 20, 2012

Enjoyed our visit. It was my daughter's birthday and they presented her with a very nice complimentary dessert. Best to go with a group because of the family style entrees.

“Feed a family of four a great meal for under $20!!”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

I'm not aware of any other restaurants that have such delicious food at such a reasonable price. My family of four ate more than we should have (their delicious spaghetti and of course their tasty bread with olive oil) and our total was less than $20. It costs us more than that to eat junk at a fast food place! Their food is the best Italian food that I’ve had at a restaurant and their customer service is also fantastic. I don't think there is any way to leave Buca's unhappy or hungry! Excellent food, excellent staff!

“Great portions”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

We went with a group of 12 people and we all left full and with leftovers. The food was good but nothing great. I like that you can have a large party and sit in a semi-private area to talk, laugh and have a great time catching up with great friends.
