Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant

We ate here on a Thursday night.  We tried to get in on Christmas Day, but the wait was an hour and a half.  They do take reservations on Christmas, but we didn't make any.

This is a restaurant where the food is served family style.  I knew that, but thought there was an option for individual orders.  There are not.  The biggest problem with family style is that my husband and I like different things.  He would have loved to have ordered seafood, but I am allergic.  I like red sauces and he is not a big fan.  We ended up choosing Chicken Carbonara which is made with chicken breast, prosciutto, peas in a garlic Alfredo sauce.  We ordered the small which serves 2-3 people.

Chicken Carbonara
 The Chicken Carbonara was very good.  The Alfredo sauce definitely had garlic in it and was very creamy.  We both really liked it.

We also ordered a small Caesar Salad.  It was very good and definitely the small was enough for us.

The restaurant is decorated with many photos and decorations. Some of the photos are quite funny.

We really enjoyed eating here even though I am not a fan of family style dining.  The service was very good and the food was great.  I would like to eat here again.

  1. We learn something new all the time! I'm pretty sure we don't have family style dining over here. Lots of places do platters for 2 or so to share but you get individual dishes too. Seems a strange you say, what's the chance of people wanting to order the same stuff all the time? Just in case you don't know, you have word verification on. When you hit publish it jumps to the top of the page, so if you don't realise and don't scroll back to the bottom to verify, the post doesn't happen.
