A must try for all in Indianapolis – I had not thought to find such a cozy and old-world atmosphere in the center of a major city, and do not be fooled by the exterior. From the charming first generation italian staff to the home-made lemoncello, this restaurant is by far my favorite in IN. All the food is Family style servings, and no matter where you sit you have the best seat in the house.
Excelllent – For those of you who have not been to Buca recently, they now offer small portions which is GREAT for parties of 2-4!! For those people who do not like Buca first of all it is REAL IMMIGRANT ITALIAN FOOD!! Do you know what immigarnt means? For those who want real Italian food go to Italy than perhaps your craving will be meet. For those who want a real fun and exciting night go to Buca di Beppo.
BabyGirl – GREAT!!!
Bucca's has the best southern Italian food in town. I go to Greenwood Bucca. The servers are alway happy and everyone makes you feel like family. My husband and I go for the Bucca Due when it is just the two of us. Chicken with lemon and manicotti. The chicken w/Lemon is awesome and the manicotti is so moist. I have friends from Italy who have gone with us, they say it is really like southern Italy. Anyone who doesn't like the food has went to to many american italian restaurants like Olive Garden and does not know what authentic cooking is. Just let your server help you order and remember tipping should start at 15% and go up. They only make $2.15 an hour.
Buca blows – Just becuase they give you "lots" of food, it doesn't mean it's good!
Food Portions – If you've never been to Bucca, be forewarned that it is not a good idea to go for a party of two. You will pay a bit more for an entree than you might have expected because you are getting portions made for large groups of people to share. Getting smaller portions is impossible. However, if you want a lot of left-overs, this might be your spot!
Awesome Dining! – you have to go in, wanting to have a good time.
Don't come here in a bad mood...
Because once you walk in, it's like your best and
worst relatives, all slinging spaghetti to the
festive music. Be ready!! Bring Family! And Enjoy
their delicious food!
p.s. try talking Italian to your server. They love it.
A must just for the fun atmosphere... – Everthing served family style, so I only recommend when you have a group of 6 or more. If you have 10 or more, you gotta sit at the "Pope's Table" which has a rotating table with a bust of the Pope in the middle. The food is good, but not outstanding, but the atmoshpere makes up where the food lacks. Truely a must see place.
it sucks – this is clearly NOT italian food. The wine tasted like vinegar and the food was very generic.
Party place – Great for large groups who just want to have a good time, but aren't too concerned about the food. Noisy and busy, the restaurant seems to have an atmosphere of fun chaos. Most of the food is average, not spectacular, although the concept of family-style dining is entertaining. I've never been impressed by the wine list or the quality of the food. I've also usually found that it's more expensive than expected or than seems appropriate for the quality of the food. Portions are huge, so at least there are always leftovers for the next day.
funky – We had a great time. It was good food. An unusal place. We had 15 people and they treated us great. The prices were resonable, too.
