This weekend concluded nicely by wrapping itself up with Mother’s Day at Buca di Beppo. I know my family loves traditional Chinese restaurants where they serve these big dishes for everyone to share, but I don’t like going out to eat at Chinese places since that’s what we eat at home anyway. Thus, I suggested going to Buca di Beppo because it was a type of cuisine not of our own but still in family-style.
1) Fried Calamari with spicy marinara sauce
2) Chopped Antipasto Salad – diced pepperoni, red onions, pepperoncini peppers, cucumbers, provolone, feta, and Gorgonzola cheeses tossed with lettuce in their Italian vinaigrette
3) Spicy Chicken Rigatoni – chicken breast sautéed with garlic and red pepper, tossed with peas, spicy rosa sauce with imported Italian rigatoni pasta
Their delivery car. How cute.
Buca di Beppo has very intricate interior designs, like the above photo, for example.
This is what I like to picture the ambience of Buca di Beppo to be like. They must’ve had like five (or maybe more) dining rooms and every single one of them was elaborate, whimsical, and cozy like this one.
