Party of 15 on a Friday evening. Prompt seating. Server was Chelsea. She provided a great level of service. Appetizers were large enough to pass around the table, several times. Main courses were large in size (family style), but not lacking in quality or taste....More

We went as part of a large group (around 40) when in town for a tournament. Service was OK but I thought the meal deal was overpriced. $24 for some salad and family style pasta ? Drinks weren't cheap either ($52 for two beers and...More

On our recent visit to Indianapolis we ate lunch here after the Indy 500 parade. The pizza was good and the service was excellent. We especially liked the family style format.

We had reservations for 16, but when we arrived were told we'd only have room for 12 and a booth diagonal from our table. That's not the way reservations work, if they couldn't accommodate 16 they should have said so. Moving on to the women's...More

We ate at Buca tonight to take advantage of a $20 birthday promo. We enjoyed the meal. The pluses were the eggplant parmigiana and the Italian Creme Cake; the minuses were the raspberry ice tea, the vodka penne (too spicy) and the worn out cushions...More

The Buca di Beppo in Castleton Square is very good, particularly for a widely located "chain" restaurant. The food is fresh and quite good, creative extensive menu, good service. A bit higher priced with its location in the Castleton area; almost would expect this approach...More
