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.
However, right now, you can create your own personal pasta bowl in honor of World Pasta Month—imagine the pastabilities! Starting at just $7.50 per person, and in 5 delicious steps, your pasta bowl will be on its way to your table in no time. What are the five steps to Create Your Own Pasta Bowl?
- Pick your favorite Pasta
- Select your Sauce
- Choose your Veggies
- Pick your Protein
- Season It.
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!
As awesome as the Create Your Own Pasta Bowl is, Buca di Beppo is not stopping there with their October World Pasta Month celebration. They are also hosting the #PastaSelfie Sweepstakes.

Buca di Beppo Create Your Own Pasta Bowl Giveaway
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)!

I haven’t eaten at Buca di Beppo in forever and I always loved it. Thanks for reminding me it’s time to revisit one of my faves. I like the idea of grilling the new boyfriend in a civilized manner. 🙂

Rory’s favorite food is pasta too! Mac, cheese, and meatballs…YUM!

I didn’t know that October was world pasta month but I’m so glad to know that it is. I love pasta so much, I could probably live off of it. Thank you for the chance to win.
And now, you know… Pasta it up! 🙂
Man alive that pasta bowl looks wondeful! So colorful and bright. had not heard of the restaurant. Will check it out.
You will not be sorry, Carol. Buca di Beppo is awesome! Be sure to bring your appetite…and your family. 🙂
World Pasta Month? Like I need any more reasons to inhale some delish pasta. My boys can’t get enough of pasta either, so this is just the motivation I need right before I make dinner tonight.
We love pasta around here too! And Buca di Beppo is an amazing experience to boot. 🙂
20 pounds of pasta in a year is crazy to think about like that. But how fun to make your own pasta dish.
I was blown away by the stats on American pasta consumption! 🙂 I can’t wait to create my own pasta bowl.
First off I love pasta and this resturant seems amazing. Pasta is the one comfort food that I don’t think I’d ever be able to give up. Second, you HAVE to be a Gilmore Girls fan right? The Luke and Rory reference had me read your “About Lorilai” page. I am a die hard Gilmore Girls fan! I think its funny that you use the names of the characters on the show with your family. I still to this day watch Gilmore Girls almost every day!
Definitely give Buca di Beppo a try, Heather…way better than any offering from Al’s Pancake World! (Gilmore Girls reference). We ARE huge fans of the show. In fact we own the series on DVD. 🙂
Pasta is our favorite in my home. I have not tried Buca di Beppo but I sure will looks delicious. Thank you for sharing.
Yum! Sounds like a fabulous idea to me. I had no idea there was a World Pasta Month! We love pastas in our house and love to make them when I can!
I never knew it was world pasta month! I love creating pasta dishes and look forward to creating my next pasta bowl dish. My favorite is penne a la vodka and pumpkin raviolis.
Linguine puttanesca is my favorite!
I had no idea that it was pasta month! Now I have a great excuse to load up on carbs 😉
This is my husband and I’s favorite date night spot. I didn’t realize how cheap this is. We need to go soon.
We’ve been digging spinach ravioli lately – but my kids are crazy for pasta of all shapes!
I love ravioli, but have never tried the spinach variety. Great idea! 🙂
Perfect timing! At 8 months pregnant I still crave pasta every other day!
HA! I remember those days. Eat your pasta and enjoy. 🙂
I love love pasta! We make it all the time, and this is one great giveaway!
Don’t forget to leave your favorite pasta dish or recipe in the comments here! Buca di Beppo is a fantastic restaurant. 🙂
I LOVE pasta! Such fun ideas to take pictures with pasta haha! My favorite is chicken alfredo! I’m a white sauce fan!
