  • LVP Sangria – Now Available at Buca di Beppo

    Sangria 

    Authentic sangria is made in Spain and Portugal – two of Italy’s closest neighbors, geographically and culturally speaking! It’s no wonder that a glass of this fruity elixir pairs deliciously with our menu of pastas, antipasti, salads and sides at Buca di Beppo! The refreshing summer beverage typically consists of wine, chopped fruits, juice or honey and a bit of brandy but LVP Sangria has simplified the drink by bottling two pre-made sangria recipes of their own. They’re both made with premium Spanish wines, they both contain with no added sugar and, as of this summer, they’re both available at Buca!

    Come in an Enjoy Some Sangria With Us!

    LVP by Lisa Vanderpump is a luscious, refreshing sangria made from Spanish red and rosé wines. The effervescent rosé is a unique sangria ingredient that adds true Vanderpump flair to the product. To start, this new brand is only making itself available in stores around Miami and Los Angeles, so the best way to get a “sneak peek” of these LVP flavors outside of those cities is by ordering yourself a glass the next time you’re at Buca di Beppo. These light, lifting drinks are best poured over ice, fresh cut fruit or a combination of the two and that’s exactly how it’s served in our restaurants. This sumptuous drink fits right in at any occasion, from showers and parties to casual Friday nights!  

    LVP RED SANGRIA

    This traditional red sangria is crafted with Tempranillo grapes, arguably the most famous of Spain’s native grapes. Tempranillo is a vibrant, aromatic black grape that adds spicy, red fruit aromas and flavors for full-bodied red wine. The grape’s name translates to “little early one,” referencing the fact that it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grapes. The Tempranillo wines for LVP are aged in oak to generate increased complexity and harmony. This surprising red can be enjoyed at any point during your meal at Buca. Sip it as a pre-entrée cocktail, use it to bring some extra interest to your main course or order it with a signature Buca desert such as our Italian Crème Cake with complementary notes of raspberry and lemon.

    LVP PINK SANGRIA

    When it’s truly sweltering outside, a lighter wine like rosé often tastes fresher. LVP’s Pink Sangria is made from a Bobal and Grenache grape blend. Grenache a.k.a. granacha adds berry and cherry flavors, herbal accents and richness. Its full flavor and regional character makes LVP Pink Sangria silky, floral and lush. Bobal is a variety of Vitis Vinifera, a red grape whose name derives from the Latin bovale, in reference to the shape of a bull’s head. Its skin is intensely and brightly colored and its smell is certainly one-of-a-kind. Together, these varietals make a well-integrated wine perfect for afternoon enjoyment or washing down an amazing Italian feast.

  • The Italian Wedding Reception Experts

    Weddings Large 

    When selecting a catering company you want to choose people who have extensive experience creating magical events and, most importantly, magical food! If you are looking for excellent food, service and the ability to work with the enormity of the detail involved in your wedding day, Buca di Beppo has a wide variety of catering options for receptions of every size.

    Here are a few of the key factors that you should discuss when meeting your wedding caterer for the first time…

    Book Your Wedding Reception Here!

    1. AVAILABILITY

    First and foremost, you need to make sure your caterer is available on the date you require and find out what the booking and payment process is. We recommend starting your caterer search once you’ve officially booked your venue. Still, we do our best to be available to our catering customers even if they aren’t booking months and months in advance. Just be sure to understand at what point your date becomes secure and when payments are needed. Our payment process is simple and convenient because we’re aware of the fact that the last thing you need is the shock of an unexpected bill just before the big day.

    1. QUALITY OF FOOD

    Taste and presentation are probably the two most important factors to keep in mind when choosing a wedding reception caterer. Our large catering pans and catered dinners have phenomenal taste and pretty impressive looks, too. If you’d like, we can even provide pictures of the dishes you want so you can get a better idea of what the final presentation will look like. Make sure your caterer has professional, commercial facilities and a team of talented individuals to serve your guests on the day. A well-established caterer will get to understand your overall vision for the day and listen to your ideas then use their wealth of experience to go beyond your expectations for the day.

    1. BUDGET

    Ask about the different budgeting options available to you. If you are on a limited budget, let the caterer know up front and they should be able to provide a package to suit your needs. Consider everything included in the price. Things like tableware and linens may or may not be included and knowing that information ahead of time can save you and your fiancé a lot of trouble down the road!

    When it comes to budget, quantity, availability and venue Buca di Beppo is a flexible, fun catering option. We can bring the food to your special venue or host your reception in one of our large, eclectic, family-friendly banquet halls! Call us today to learn more about how we can add some Italian flavor to your day of amore!

In terms of pastas and other main courses, we’ve got chicken, seafood, veal, vegetarian dishes like Eggplant Parmigiana and more. Finally, no banquet event is complete without dessert such as our chocolate-drizzled Cannoli or hazelnut Tiramisu made with mascarpone, espresso, rum and homemade ladyfingers.    

    Most Buca di Beppo dining rooms have a theme so that you can choose which room best complements your event. We have a Pope Room with a large round table, a Chef’s Table for foodie events, a wine room for vino enthusiasts and a poster room for those looking for classic Italian details.

  • What’s the Pope Room?

    Pop Table Large 

    The Pope is the Bishop of Rome and the leader of the Catholic Church worldwide. His ecclesiastical jurisdiction, the Diocese of Rome, is often called “the Holy See.” In addition to the religious power he wields, the pope is also the political head of state of Vatican City, a sovereign city-state entirely enclaved within Italy’s capital city. The papacy is one of the most enduring institutions in the world and has played a prominent part in world history – Italian history especially. In ancient times, popes helped spread Christianity and settle doctrinal disputes. In the middle ages, they were involved in the secular development of Western Europe as well, often acting as arbitrators between Christian monarchs. Currently, in addition to the expansion of the Christian faith and doctrine, the popes stay involved in interfaith dialog, charitable work and the defense of human rights. Pope Francis has been in the headlines a lot since his papacy began in 2013. He may be Argentinian but, judging from his peaceful yet down-to-earth demeanor, we’d say the Italian way of life is starting to rub off on him.

    Book the Pope Room Now.

    Though the Pope’s power is now mostly religious, we think that there’s no better way to trace the history of Italy than by reviewing the lineage of popes. Even today, Vatican City is an epicenter of Italian culture. That’s why every Buca di Beppo Restaurant has a Pope Room decorated with statues, photographs and other artistic representations of popes past and present plus souvenirs straight from the Vatican! Each Pope Room is furnished with a single round table, large enough to seat 12 to 18 people. A “lazy susan” sits in the middle of the table, making it easy for diners to share fresh breads, colorful salads and big bowls of our signature pastas. We highly suggest the Pope Room for most any occasion!  

    Father’s Day

    The Italian word for Pope is “Papa” which also means father! If that doesn’t prove that the Pope Room is the perfect place to go for a Father’s Day lunch or dinner, then we don’t know what does.

    First Communion

    The First Communion is a big day in a child’s life! It should be celebrated Vatican-style with lots of food and family fun. That’s exactly what you’ll get in this themed room along with excellent service and a whimsical atmosphere.

    Family Night Out

    Hosting a family reunion this summer? Reuniting with some relatives you haven’t seen in a while? With its huge family table, the Pope Room is perfect for private family meals. Since everyone can see everyone else, it’s easy to make the most out of your time together at the Pope Room’s round table.
