Buca di Beppo

My aunt, uncle, and cousins came up from Houston for Spring Break.  We went to Buca di Beppo for lunch.  Although this restaurant isn’t unique to Austin, I was pretty sure they would like it.  Italian is always a good choice when you go with a group of people because there are so many different types of dishes to cater to everyone’s tastes.

I thought Buca only served family-style meals, but it turns out that they serve individual entrees during lunch.  We still ended up ordering off of the family-style menu.  For this, there are two options: small-sized portions (recommended for 2 people) and large (recommended for 4). We ordered a small salad and three small entrees thinking it would be just right for the six of us.  We ended up with a lot of leftovers!

I was pleased with all of the dishes.  My aunt and uncle also ordered a cup of the Italian sausage soup.  They both really liked that.

I’m actually really looking forward to eating the leftovers later since I was quite satisfied with our meal.  Take a look at the pictures:

1

Chopped Antipasto Salad - "Diced pepperoni, red onions, pepperoncini peppers, cucumbers, provolone, feta and Gorgonzola cheeses, tossed with our fresh lettuce blend in our signature Italian vinaigrette."

3

Penne San Remo - "Tender chicken breast, artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes and peas tossed with imported Italian penne pasta in a white wine cream sauce."

4

Supremo Italiano - "Our heartiest offering – chunks of ground beef and spicy Italian sausage mixed with strips of pepperoni, bell peppers and onions, all on top of red sauce and cheese."

2

Baked Rigatoni - "Our rich meat sauce and spicy Italian sausage tossed with imported Italian rigatoni and lots of mozzarella. Topped with Parmesan and dollops of ricotta cheese then baked to golden perfection."
