October Is World Pasta Month

Imagine the Pastabilities!

October is World Pasta Month; so, come celebrate and Create Your Own Pasta Bowl at Buca di Beppo.

Imagine yourself in a one-of-a-kind festive atmosphere surrounded by kitchy vintage collectibles and photographs. The eclectic décor brings fun, laughter, and an undeniable energy to this Italian restaurant.

What really makes Buca di Beppo special for the entire familia, is the food—traditional classic Italian recipes served family style and cotto a puntino (cooked to perfection). The delizioso antipasti (appetizers), insalate (salads), and pizzas are wonderful add-ons for the amazing entrees and. pasta dishes on a regular basis.

It is as simple as that, and your tummy will thank you. Take just a moment to Calma e gesso (pause and think). Envision your custom, authentic pasta bowl. That perfectly cooked pasta, the flavorful sauce, the color and crunch of veggies, the chicken, prosciutto, meatballs, spicy or mild sausage, and your favorite seasonings…let your senses take over. Doesn’t it far venire l’acquolina in bocca (make your mouth water)?

Here’s a few fun facts about pasta. Can you believe that pasta is so popular in the United States that 24% of the global consumption of pasta is by Americans – the largest of any country in the world? Americans consume 6 billion pounds of pasta each year with the average American consuming 20 pounds of pasta annually. Now, that’s a lotta pasta!

Luke and I plan to take Rory and Biscuit to celebrate World Pasta Month. You know, a little grilling (of the new boyfriend) over pasta is so much friendlier than a heat lamp and lie detector! If he’s good, maybe we’ll even indulge in a little dessert: Chocolate Chip Cannoli, Tiramisu, the Dolce Platter…just some of the tempting treats to choose from.

You can bet we will be submitting our #PastaSelfie!

You won’t leave Buca di Beppo hungry, but you will leave eager to plan your next visit. Prendere la palla al balzo farsi due fili (seize the opportunity to eat spaghetti)!
