Buca di Beppo - Downtown Indianapolis Ratings and Reviews
Waiting 15 past reservation time. Waitress was very pleasant and did her best to make our evening enjoyable. We initially didn't have silverware, so we waited for that before we could eat our salad. Then, when the food was brought, we had to wait for plates (or tiny salad plates had been removed or we would have just used those!). Our food was not exactly hot when it arrived, so waiting for plates made it just barely warm. Again, the waitress was pleasant and accommodating. Food was good - not great. With so many dining options in downtown Indy, I probably won't go again.
Messed up every course - the appetizer they ran out of tomatoes (we ordered bruschetta), and the main course they forgot our salad. On the plus size they gave us free dessert, but we ordered the brownie sundae and the brownies were cold and definitely store bought. Disappointing when you spend $145 for 3 people (1 app, 2 small main courses & two drinks each) and everything gets messed up.
My fiance and I went out just to have a night out. We went the same night that there were 3 school's having prom as well, I wouldn't suggest doing that. As for the service, we had to wait a while past our reserved time because of the prom dinners. The waitress however was great. They took care of us and were very personable which is great for people who are huge on guest service! Amazing food. I was very impressed with their food! Altogether a wonderful experience.
Buca di Beppo is a great italian option for large groups that can order family style. It's a little more difficult in a smaller group of 4 because 2 small dishes are more than enough but you don't get a ton of variety. The food was served hot and fresh, the pastas rich, the bread indulgent and the desserts to die for.
Annually go to Bucca for a business dinner with a large group. This restaurant can handle it. This year the place was less crowded that past years and we had to wait 25 min for our table. A few items we ordered never made the table but sure made it to the bill. We worked that out at the end. Overall this year Bucca was off of their game. Food was on point as always.
Sat our family in the bar by 6 noisy women, the only waitress which was the bartender catered to them and we were absolutely secondary, took forever to get waited on and there were only 2 tables of people and spaghetti and fettuccine was not good, meatballs tasted like dog food. We have never had this experience at buca before and we were celebrating a special occasion - unfortunate
It was the most amazing experience of my life never have I thought to find such a place where I could dine as though if I were in Rome. I felt like a king I had Esquires I had clowns. When we received our meal, fireworks begin to be shot in the air. It was so magical. I even got to see a dragon! If I were to be asked again about my experience I would say that it was aight.
We were quite late for our reservation and they still sat us- it was great. Our salads were good, and we got the seafood pasta. Our calamari was the only complaint- it lacked flavor and was quite soggy. We even sent it back the first time, but it wasn't much better the second time around.
They try hard, but the restaurant is always busier on weekends than they can handle. Reservations are seated 30-60 minutes late. The servers, while friendly, are over worked and don't have time to make sure they do a good job. For example we asked twice for silverware and still waited a good 7 minutes after our food was delvivered before it was delivered by the third person we asked. By then the food was getting cold. Plus the place is packed to the point no one can walk through, and so loud you cannot have a conversation.
They missed my 2 high chair memo and had the nerve to ask if we could put 2 kids under 2yrs in a booster seat. Took longer than expected to get seated and I had a reservation. Finally sat down with my party just to discover a whole room with round tables open and clean-the answered I got was we have reservations...really!!!
We've been here many times. As usual, the service was great. However, in the past few years, the food quality has gone downhill. Our appetizers were cold and anything not custom made was also cold (spaghetti / meatballs, fettuccine Alfredo). We ordered Caesar salad with chicken and did not receive chicken. We ordered custom made pasta - and did not receive artichokes in it but got chicken in it that we did not order (did not want meat due to a vegetarian eating). Prior to everyone finishing their meal, we received the bill - we felt pushed out (despite the restaurant not being full and being early in the night). There are better choices in town.
Our service was great as the waitress was prepared however the main reason we went there was to sing Happy Birthday to our daughter or son and a granddaughter no singing granddaughter devastated but they tend to 12 colossal brownie no whipped cream the tables around us were saying to how do you think that makes a seven-year-old feel crappy
The last couple of times we have been to Buca we have been quite disappointed in the pasta, which is a real shame. Their penne alla vodka used to be my very favorite and I'm sorry to say that it's no longer very good. Quite frankly, none of the pasta seems to be very good anymore. The best part of our meal was actually the roasted garlic mashed potatoes, which we ordered as an afterthought. The meatballs were simply ok. I was just glad that our server was really sweet and our bill wasn't very expensive at all. I don't think we will be going back anytime soon as our last two visits have been a real let down.
I've been to Buccas many times. This time was the worst experience ever! Our food came out cold, waitress had attitude when she came to check on us 20 minutes after dropping cold food off! Chef came to table and said he would have them made again...they microwaved one dish and brought out a pasta dish 40 minutes later. Never did anyone come back to check on us OR comp anything on our bill! Our bill was $300.00 which was for a party of 12..I will never return with the type of service we received.
The dining experience was a little disappointing as food was served lukewarm. Waitress was very friendly and personable as was the kitchen chef which made up for the mediocre, lukewarm food. A new plate of hot food was served. Signature glasses were not available as advertised.
