  • Enjoy Comfort Food at Its Finest on Lasagna Day, July 29

    Whether you’ve had a rough day or you’re looking to celebrate, comfort food is what you crave. Offering a taste of home, most Americans tend to gravitate toward warm, hearty, comforting classics like lasagna. This laboriously crafted dish originally debuted in Naples, Italy, during the Middle Ages, but was a far cry from the mouthwatering lasagna you dream about. We can thank the wonderful Italian cooks who immigrated to America in the late 1800s for the layered dish that we love today. There are currently dozens of different lasagna recipes featuring a variety of meats, seafood, vegetables, ragùs, Béchamel and tomato sauces, cheeses, wines, and spices; but the most common combination features layers of pasta, meat sauce, and cheeses.

    Make a Reservation Now and Celebrate Lasagna Day at Buca!

    Lasagna Day….in July?

    Originally only served on special occasions, lasagna loves being the star of the show. Whenever you see and smell a lasagna bubbling in the oven, you just can’t wait to sit down to a heaping helping of flavors. However, Lasagna Day falls right in the middle of summer, when the last thing you want to do is heat up your kitchen. That’s when you turn to your favorite Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo!

    Let Us Serve You

    Lasagna was originally only created for special occasions, but at Buca we think every day is a special occasion. That’s why our menu always includes our special lasagna featuring towering layers of meat sauce, ricotta, mozzarella, provolone, and Parmesan. Come to your local Buca and enjoy one of America’s most loved Italian dishes in one of our cool and comfortable dining rooms.

    Let Us Cater

    We can bring your favorite comfort food to you! Our Party Pans can feed up to 20 hungry adults and our Half Pans can feed up to 10. Have a get together with your friends and family or treat your staff to a variety of our Italian creations on Lasagna Day and every day!

    Buca To Go

    Pick up a Buca Small or Buca Large dish to take to your home or event. Our mouthwatering lasagna is also a great way to welcome a new neighbor or support a family with a new baby. Give us a call to place your order and we’ll have your selections ready for you at your requested time, so you can pick up and be on your way.

    Don’t miss out on Lasagna Day! If you don’t have the time to create your own lasagna or it’s just too hot to bake in your kitchen, don’t worry, Buca can help. Come to your favorite Buca to dine with us, or call to place a catering or To Go order today!

  • I scream. You scream. We all scream for National Ice Cream Day!

    This year, July 16 isn’t your regular summer Sunday, it’s National Ice Cream Day! On July 9, 1984 President Ronald Reagan declared July “National Ice Cream Month” and July 15, 1984, as “National Ice Cream Day” with Presidential Proclamation 5219. While the resolution only mentioned a specific month and day in 1984, National Ice Cream Day is now celebrated every year on the third Sunday in July.

    Come to Buca this Sunday and Enjoy Some Delicious Gelato for Desert!

    We invite you to Buca for National Ice Cream Day, National Ice Cream Month, and any other day you want a sweet treat to cool you down. The newest addition to our dessert menu, our vanilla, raspberry, and pistachio artisan gelato is rich, dense, and topped off with sugar cones. A delicious treat for any day of the year.

    What’s the difference between ice cream and gelato?

    • Ingredients: Gelato and ice cream each contain cream, milk, and sugar, but gelato uses more milk and less cream than ice cream. Gelato also doesn’t use a common ice cream ingredient—egg yolks.
    • Butterfat and flavor: Ice cream usually contains between 14% – 25% butterfat while gelato usually contains between 4% – 9% butterfat. Less butterfat to coat your tongue allows for a more intense flavor experience.
    • Air: Ice cream is churned fast and hard to whip in air, increasing its volume and giving it a fluffy texture. Gelato contains less air because it is churned at a much slower speed, keeping it dense, fluid, and creamy.
    • Serving Temperature: Ice cream can be nearly frozen solid but the air in its mix means it can still be easily scooped. If gelato were stored at the same low temperature as ice cream, it would become a frozen block. Because gelato is served slightly warmer than ice cream, you can also taste it better because your tongue is less numb!

    Celebrate National Ice Cream Day by sharing a true taste of Italy with your family and friends! Come in and try a scoop of our vanilla, raspberry, or pistachio gelato. If you still prefer ice cream, then we suggest our eye-popping, mouthwatering Colossal Brownie Sundae. We create this masterpiece by layering twelve decadent chunks of freshly baked brownies with six scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream and then top your sundae with caramel and chocolate sauces, whipped cream, and a cherry! Come to Buca for all your ice cream and gelato treats on National Ice Cream day and every other day this summer!

    Come to Buca this Sunday and Enjoy Some Delicious Gelato for Desert!

  • This Father’s Day, Give Dad the Gift of a Full Stomach

    Father’s Day is the perfect opportunity to show our Dads just how special they are. They gave us endless advice that annoyed us until we were old enough to truly appreciate their words of wisdom. They taught us the joys of getting dirty while camping and fishing, and told the worst (best?) Dad jokes. They bought us ice cream, built elaborate forts, and seemed to have a sixth sense for when we are about to touch the thermostat. For years, we’ve pushed his limits, but he’s always loved us unconditionally.

    Celebrate Your Superhero!  Make your Father’s Day Reservation Here.

    This year, show Dad how thankful you are for all those times he threw you in the air in the pool and worried about your tire pressure. Come to Buca to laugh and reflect while he enjoys a feast fit for a king. Our friendly staff will make Dad feel like royalty and our extensive menu is sure to have all of his tried and true favorites, as well as a few new items to catch his eye and please his tastebuds. Dad’s hearty appetite is no match for our authentic oven-baked, bubbling pizzas and decadent pasta dishes. But, if he’s looking for lighter fare, our crisp, fresh salads and succulent seafood never cease to amaze!

  • Memorial Day Weekend: A Day of Honor and Remembrance

    Summer officially begins on Wednesday, June 21st this year, but the 3-day Memorial Day weekend is often embraced as the unofficial start to the summer season. During this weekend Americans usually relax with friends and family, often with a picnic or cookout before commemorating Memorial Day on Monday. To show respect and gratitude to the men and women of our armed forces who have given their lives in service to our country, many Americans attend parades and memorial services or place flags and flowers on the graves of the fallen during this weekend. While Memorial Day is a day of remembrance it is also a day we thank our current active duty and veteran military for all they have done to protect our country and our freedoms.

    Nurses are integral to hospitals, clinics, and other health care organizations. They administer aid and medicines, provide quality care for sick or hurt patients, and continually consult with other healthcare providers. They also educate their patients and families, keep meticulous records, and assist doctors around the clock. This broad spectrum of responsibilities is why nurses are referred to as the heart of healthcare.

    A Quick History of National Nurses Week

    In 1953, Dorothy Sutherland of the United States Department of Health, Education, and Welfare unsuccessfully petitioned President Eisenhower in proclaiming a day in October as “Nurse Day.” After many additional proclamation attempts throughout the years, progress was finally made in 1982, when the United States Congress and the American Nurses Association (ANA) jointly designated May 6 as “National Nurses Day” and President Ronald Reagan signed a resolution that proclaimed May 6 as “National Recognition Day for Nurses”. In 1991, recognition for nurses expanded from a single day to a full week, which begins on May 6, and continues through May 12, Florence Nightingale’s birthday. Specific days of recognition have since been added by the ANA. In 1996, the ANA recognized May 6 as “National RN Recognition Day,” in 1998, the ANA designated May 8 as “National Student Nurses Day,” and since 2003, “National School Nurse Day” has been celebrated each year on the Wednesday within National Nurses Week.

    Nurses work days, nights, weekends, and holidays; often spending up to 12 hours at a time on their feet! This year, during National Nurses Week, show these amazing men and women how much they are appreciated by gifting them with a catered meal or gift certificate from Buca di Beppo.
