Buca di Beppo was one of those restaurants we passed all the time with the intention of stopping by. We finally visited on one of our impromptu dinner date nights and walked in to a completely packed restaurant! The wait was surprisingly quick and we were soon seated.
Our wonderful waitress was very helpful. She explained how everything on the menu was served family style. The small order can easily serve 2 or more while the large order can easily serve 4 or more. We were lucky she advised us, because otherwise, we would have order way too much!
We were offered some warm, soft bread with a balsamic olive oil dip to start off. I should really try and recreate the dipping sauce at home. It was delicious!
I ordered a Strawberry Italian Soda topped with whipped cream and it was just sweet and bubbly enough for me.
We ordered the Stuffed Mushrooms as an appetizer. These mushrooms were stuffed with prosciutto, cheese, sage and rosemary served on pesto cream sauce. These were the best stuffed mushrooms I've ever had, besides my own! And the pesto cream sauce was to die for! It did not go to waste as we used what little was left with our pasta.
For dinner, we ordered a small order of the Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken with a side of Fettucine Alfredo. The chicken was stuffed with mozzarella and prosciutto and served with Buca di Beppo's marinara or pesto cream sauces. We had chosen the pesto cream sauce prior to even trying it and we were so glad we had!
A scoopful of Fettucine Alfredo doused in the amazing pesto cream sauce with half of a Prosciutto Stuffed Chicken was enough to fill me up. Mr. Munchimunch had just slightly more than me and was also stuffed. The chicken was tender and full of flavor. The pesto cream sauce made the whole meal!
Buca di Beppo was a great place and we wished we ate here sooner. While the meal itself was a bit pricey, the meal was more than adequate! We barely put a dent in our small orders and had plenty leftover for lunch and dinner the next day. We definitely want to revisit and we want to try everything on the menu! Especially the desserts. ^_^
