This restaurant is closed. We attempted to visit it before Thanksgiving, and despite receiving e-mails with offers and menu suggestions, we found it shuttered.

Chopped antipasto

We absolutely love your chopped antipasto. We were drawn to it because most restaurants put big chunks of hard, white lettuce in it and I always have to further ""prepare"" my salad before I can eat it. We pick up a salad every time we have steaks and we get it every time we come to eat, however the last two salads have had a few pieces approximately six inches by one inch by one inch making it less appealing. Could this be improved upon? Thanks for your time and consideration.

A cool place and interesting atmosphere, but the food is getting a little expensive now. The food is good with the exception of some of those precooked or frozen items, but you could go anywhere for the price they are asking these days. Calamari was not so good, guessing it was frozen. Drinks are up there too, resulting in a $60 bill for two (without tip) only drinking a beer each. The family style portions are really not that big for what you pay... 18.95 for three small chicken ...view morebreasts in the lemon chicken...that is with no sides, just chicken! I do like a few of thier menu items, but I refuse to pay the price any more when you can go to the olive garden and get simliar food with salad and bread for 35% less cost.view less

Great place for friends

In short if you have a group of friends or a large crowd this is a great place to go eat. The service is good and the food is great served in a family style format

Family Value Good Food

The restaurant is purely gaudy to the point that it's fun and entertaining to be there. Reading the ""Miss Buca"" profiles on the walls are hilarious and seeing kids cover their eyes passing the peeing fountain is always funny. The waiters always seem on top of things and are very friendly, one was even so honest as to bring out a $20 accidentally dropped on the floor. While Buca's is a chain and food may be ""processed"", by no means does this mean the food is not tasty. Having been t...view morehere many times I find the food delicious, and where else can you get a meatball bigger than your fist cooked to perfection? The salads are always fresh, the pasta heavy, the garlic kicking and the tiramisu to die for, everything you would expect in an Itallian restaurant. If you order the regular size be prepared to have enough for 3-4 people to eat, or a lot to bring home. Joining their e-club gets you great offers and a free dessert on your birthday month. Their Buca To Go curbside pick up is great, my sister has three children and seems to order from Buca's constantly. I gave it five stars because it's fun, the food is good, and the meals aren't overpriced. If you want to feel like your in your ""fun but crazy"" Itallian aunt's house, this is the place to go, and you're guaranteed to like it.view less

Menu change but still a good night!

The Minneapolis downtown Bucca was really crowded on Saturday night. We chose Bucca's to dine as we have always loved the tortellini along with the garlic mashed potatoes. Noting it was not on the menu, we asked our waitress and she stated she was very sorry and that she had head the complaint several times previously. She did go into the kitchen to see if they had any tortellini that could be cooked for us.(they didn't). Which means it could not have been long taken off menu. ...view more We ordered the checken fettucenine and it was very good and we were pleasantly full. But just so you know, it was NOT as good a tortellini!!! Please bring this item back to the menu if possible. Thank you for your website and keep running a great resturant!!view less

Gourmet price for pre-cooked food.

Bucca Di Beppo is yes, a chain, and thus not fresh, generally overdone, and premade. We ordered the gnocci w/ marinara and the chicken marsala. The gnocci was decent, but slightly overcooked, and the sauce was fairly tasty, but the chicken marsala was not good. When the Chicken marsala came to the table it smelled like somebody had poured maple syrup over the chicken instead of marsala wine, and tasted like a sweet and sour sauce that you would order from a chinese restaurant. The...view more food is all served family style, with family size prices, which means nobody really gets what he or she wants, and everyone still pays as though he had his own personal chef. Yet, I would recommend this restaurant to large families with lots of kids, since they can share, and kids are used to not having much say in what they eat.view less

Food excellent, family style meals bad.

The food is absolutely wonderful. The place is always packed, which is a good sign. However, there is no option for individuals to order single portion meals. Everything is family-style (feeds a minimum of 2-3 people). I won't be eating there alone, because I will have to pay for a meal that feeds 2-3 people. If you order chicken parmesan and want spaghetti with that, then you are going to have to order the spaghetti separately and pay for it. The prices are steep, but again the ...view morefood is wonderful. I found the children's menu to be very good and at a good price.view less
