    Buca Really Takes the Cake

    We have three delicious cakes to end your Italian feast on a sweet note. Our Double Dark Chocolate Cake consists of moist dark chocolate cake with layers of rich chocolate frosting, all on top of our sinful chocolate sauce. Our Italian Crème Cake is six layers of rich lemon cake and mascarpone cheese filling, served in a pool of raspberry sauce and topped with whipped cream. A super special confection, our Celebration Cake is the perfect choice to commemorate a special occasion. We’ll even decorate it!

    Creamy Italian Classics

    We love classic Italian desserts and know that our guests do too! Our powerfully flavored Tiramisu features homemade ladyfingers soaked in dark rum and espresso, layered with sweetened mascarpone cheese and topped with cocoa and crumbled hazelnut biscotti. Our rich, creamy, homemade Cheesecake is topped with raspberry sauce and sprinkled with toasted hazelnuts. Our sweet twist on a classic Italian cannoli, our Chocolate Chip Cannoli feature crispy shells stuffed to order with a sweet, cannoli cream filling mixed with chocolate chips and served over a drizzle of our chocolate sauce. 

    Cool Down with a Frozen Finish

    When the temperatures rise, you want a sweet treat that can cool you down. Enjoy a true taste of Italy and try our gourmet Gelato. What’s the difference between gelato and ice cream? Gelato is a softer, slower melting, more flavorful cousin to American ice cream. Ice cream is churned fast and hard to whip in air and increase its volume. Gelato contains less air because it is churned at a much slower speed. Gelato also contains more flavoring and is served at a slightly warmer temperature, making it more dense, rich, and smooth than ice cream. Try a true taste of Italy today! Come in and try a scoop! Maybe you’re looking for an over the top delicious dessert? Our eye-popping, mouthwatering Colossal Brownie Sundae features twelve decadent chunks of freshly baked brownies layered with six scoops of vanilla and chocolate ice cream and is then topped with caramel and chocolate sauces, whipped cream, and a cherry!

    Is it too difficult to decide? Well, we think you shouldn’t have to settle for just one. That’s why our Dolce Platter features Tiramisu, Double Dark Chocolate Cake, Homemade Cheesecake, and Italian Crème Cake, so you can sample a selection of each of your favorites. Plus, don’t miss out on a super special summer dessert that is only available for a limited time: our Summer Strawberry Shortcake. A true taste of summer, our Summer Strawberry Shortcake features a lemon-infused cakey biscuit drizzled with natural strawberry juices and is topped with fresh seasonal strawberries and whipped cream.

    We can’t wait for you to try all of our amazing desserts. Enjoy your favorites after a full Italian feast, or simply come to your favorite local Buca for a sweet treat this summer.

  • 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!

    Make your Father’s Day reservations online or call your local Buca di Beppo restaurant today! Let us treat Dad and your family to a delicious meal while you spend some special time laughing and sharing stories. You have always been able to count on Dad. Now, spend some quality time with him at everyone’s favorite Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo. Call, stop by, or make your Father’s Day reservations online today!

    If you aren’t able to spend Father’s Day with any of the special Dads in your life, a Buca gift card is a thoughtful and delicious way to show him that you care. Always appreciated, they never go unused or forgotten and with no expiration date or service fees, Dad can use it at any Buca restaurant. Tuck one in a thoughtful card or send an eGift Card instantly to his inbox. Dad can then grab a taste of Buca whenever he has a craving for tasty Italian treats, like our massive half-pound meatballs!
