Family-Style Italian: Buca di Beppo

Buca Di Beppo

If you’re looking for a restaurant with a great atmosphere and even better family-style Italian food, look no further than Buca di Beppo.  Their genuine Italian dishes are served in two sizes: small feeds up to three and large up to six people; during lunch hours they also offer single-serving meals.  With an array of dishes that includes traditional spaghetti with meatballs, veal saltimbocca, thin-crust pizza, and oven-roasted salmon, Buca offers food the entire family will enjoy.  Now let’s talk atmosphere.  The  the walls are covered in old-fashioned photographs that not only bring you back to the good ‘ol days, but have a hint of comedy.  Nuns driving bumper cars, a little boy touching a fat old man’s protruding stomach, and nurses quoted with “yes, an enema would be just the thing,” are just the beginning.  Want to watch the cooks at work?  No problem, just ask to be seated in the kitchen area.  Beware though, it gets awfully hot down there.

Although I’m generally more of a hole-in-the-wall-Italian-restaurant kind of person, I’d recommend Buca di Beppo to anyone.  If you like Italian food, you’ll definitely like this restaurant.  Over 85 locations nationwide make it easily accessible to most Americans, so go try it out now!  If you’re going at a busy hour or with a large group, I would definitely recommend making a reservation to avoid any wait.  Check out some of the Italian restaurants coupons we have to offer.
