    How many times have you tried to prepare a “quick, easy” recipe only to find that it takes longer than expected or you’re missing a vital ingredient?

    In honor of World Pasta Month, Buca is serving up multiple, mouthwatering made-to-order entrée options the entire month of October. Allow our chefs to create for you a perfectly personalized pasta dish. Start with your choice of the best quality spaghetti, linguine penne, rigatoni, or cavatappi, then top it with a freshly made marinara, alfredo, garlic olive oil, rosa, pesto, or meat sauce. Fill your dish with color by mixing in up to three different market-fresh vegetables. Diced roma tomatoes, sun-dried tomatoes, roasted red peppers, artichokes, sautéed mushrooms, broccoli, spinach, green peas, and sliced red onions add texture and crunch to your creation. Finally, pick a delicious, perfectly prepared protein. Chicken, prosciutto, meatballs, spicy sausage, or mild sausage balance your dish. Add a pinch of crushed red pepper and/or poached garlic and you’ve just created your custom Italian meal.

    Pasta is always a family favorite, even for the pickiest of eaters. Whether you create a single dish to share or let everyone choose their own, our generous portions will feed your family and our affordable prices fit every budget. Starting at $7.50 per person, each “Create Your Own Pasta” creation feeds 4 or more! Experiment with new variations by mixing and matching or stick to your tried and true favorites. No matter what your choices, know that your personalized pasta dish will be prepared by our master team of chefs using top of the line ingredients. We can even make an extra special signature dish to accommodate dietary restrictions. Design a decadent, vegetarian pasta primavera, Chicken Florentine, or any other combination you can think of. Once you’ve created your pasta, the only other choice you need to make is whether to enjoy your handcrafted Italian masterpiece around your dinner table or ours. Either way, you will spend your time relaxing and enjoying your satisfying meal instead of sweating, slicing, and dicing in your kitchen.

    Take the hassle out of your dinner menu by letting the chefs at Buca prepare the best Italian cuisine made to your exact preferences. When you plan this week’s menu, plan on having pasta your way. Ditch that frustrating new recipe and enjoy a warm, delicious pasta dinner made just for you. Our customized entrées are the right fit for a family dinner, date night, or dinner for one. “Create Your Own Pastas” are perfect to share, plentiful enough for entertaining, and a great option for tomorrow’s lunch.

    15-BDB-Corporate-0985-Q3_Blog-Large_581x250_01-1 

    The children have started a new school year and the leaves are just starting to turn. But rather than focusing solely on the season at hand, it is necessary to begin looking ahead. Autumn may have only just begun but the holiday season is fast approaching and it’s not too early to start thinking about your holiday parties. Whether you are planning parties for your friends at our restaurant, your family at home, or your co-workers at the office, we can help you make it the event everyone will be talking about all season.

    The fun, festive semi-private dining rooms at all of our restaurants are uniquely decorated, comfortable, and inviting. Guests share family-style dishes, bringing a warm, friendly vibe to the group with plates to please even the most picky eater. The great atmosphere paired with our delicious Italian cuisine and wonderful wait staff will ensure that you have a perfect party. Plus the added bonus of no clean-up!

    Maybe you want to cater your party at your office, home, or event space due to size or convenience? We can meet your needs for size, diverse menu options for multiple diets, and all the details. From desserts and beverages to silverware and napkins, we can supply it all so you can spend more time with your guests.

    To begin planning for your holiday events, consider a few questions about each event:

    • How many people will be attending?
    • What is the date and time of your party?
    • Where will your party take place?
    • Will you be including options for those with dietary restrictions?
    • What sort of setting will your party have? Serious and formal or lighthearted and fun?

    After assessing your needs, contact your local sales manager or fill out the form on our website to get started. A member of our team will make suggestions and assist you from your initial planning stage up until your party. We can accommodate any event or budget regardless of size but don’t wait until it’s too late. We are so excited to help you organize a great party but as the holidays approach (and they creep up quickly) you run a greater risk of unavailability at our locations or inability to accommodate large groups on specific days the later in the year you wait to finalize.

    A little advanced preparation now will keep your party (and the days and weeks leading up to your gathering) stress-free. This year, instead of worrying about what you will cook for the holidays, partner with a member of our sales team to begin planning your perfect holiday gathering. Whether you join us at one of our restaurants or we bring our delicious dishes to you, let us handle the food so you can focus on having fun with your friends and family. Begin your holiday party planning today and as your event approaches you will be relieved to know that together you and the staff at Buca di Beppo have got it covered!

  • Need A Place to Host Your Business Networking Event?

    Business Networking Large 

    Are your employees losing valuable time by commuting, ordering, and waiting for their lunches? All of that time spent procuring their meals leaves little time for them to relax and enjoy their break. This can lead to a tired staff who lags in productivity. The same can be said for when your office hosts out of town meetings. Time is lost with deciding where you should all have a meal, how you will transport everyone, waiting to be seated, etc. Boost company moral and get creative juices flowing with a delicious spread of in-office hors d’oeuvres, meals, and desserts for lunches, dinners, breaks, and snacks. Catered meals allow your colleagues and employees to refuel their body and re-energize their minds, making them happier and more productive workers. A significantly less amount of time is spent obtaining meals and more time is spent enjoying food and recharging batteries. It is easy to see how business catering benefits everyone.
