It’s been a really long time since we had been to Buca Di Beppo. After dinner tonight I don’t understand why we haven’t been back in so many years. The food is huge family style portions at a reasonable price and the flavor is amazing! The restaurant is a maze to get through as they take you to your table you pass through the kitchen and several of their themed rooms. It’s really neat, but there’s so much to look at you are almost overwhelmed.
We where having our last big meal for a while and planned on taking home a bunch of leftovers so I wouldn’t have to cook for a while, but of course we had to taste everything!
For an appetizer we went for the Buca Trio Platter $19.95 (Fried Calamari, Fried Mozzarella and Stuffed Mushrooms served with marinara, pesto cream sauce and spicy marinara sauce for dipping) Wow this was all really good!
For our main course we ordered the Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken $21.95 small $32.95 large (Breaded chicken breasts stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto, baked and topped with marinara, served on a bed of pesto cream sauce.) The chicken was really moist and we just loved the flavor of the pesto cream sauce which really made the dish.
I ordered the Spicy Chicken Rigatoni $18.95 small $29.95 large (Tender chicken breast sautéed with garlic and red pepper, tossed with peas, a spicy rosa sauce and imported Italian rigatoni pasta.) Oh how I loved this dish! So full of flavor and it does have a kick. The pasta is home made which gives it a nice light taste you just can’t stop eating it.
On top of all that we also ordered a small side of Fettuccine Alfredo $14.95. Loved the creamy white sauce you just can’t go wrong with Alfredo.
As you can see it’s all family style and you eat as much as you like (or should I say can). When they bag up your left overs be sure to ask for some extra bread.
I just loved everything about this place. I also appreciated that when I asked for extra marinara sauce or extra pesto on my chicken to go they didn’t charge me extra. Big bonus in my book!
