                        I celebrated my 60th birthday at the Indianapolis Castleton location with 5 family members. Everything was fine until they brought the dinner for me and my daughter-in-law. When I told the waiter it was the wrong order, he took it back and

                        The food at Buca Di Beppo is really tasty, however, the service is not great compared to other italian restaurants. Drink refills take unusually long. Also, the walls actually make the restaurant look like a bathroom. I have heard that they have a table in the kitchen where you can eat, and that experience is amazing. If you are looking for good tasting food to eat with family or friends, then this is the place to go. However, it is not an upscale italian restaurant.

                        We went here for a birthday celebration. With the exception of the salad, the food was mediocre at best. The atmosphere is noisy and the service was below expectations.

                        First out was the salad, which was of good size, it should be for $10.00, however i felt cheated out of the items that are traditonally served in an antipasto salad because it was mostly lettuce. On the salad there were 8 small triangles

                        Highly recommend!! Great Italian food downtown. Walking distance from Circle Centre/Monument. Unless you have a large group be sure and only order the small portion. The apple gorgonzola salad is a must have. Friendly, efficient, caring staff. If you enjoy Italian food, dont leave Indy without a visit. You will be pleasantly surprised.

                        Buca di Yakoh, I mean Pepo, has huge portions but no taste in the food. It seems that they have an 11 year old for a cook...it could even be compared to Bravo's or even Amalfi. Sorry that someone has decided this is number for Italian food

                        Although many people would disagree with me, Buca di Beppo is certainly not one of the better Italian restaurants in Indy. The restaurant is geared toward large groups and servings are enormous. The pasta is mediocre and the less said

                        Fresh, authentic Italian food served family style. Perfect restaurant for small parties or large banquets.
