Buca di Beppo: "Feast on southern Italian specialties" Bucca di Beppo Tip by BLewJay

Bucca di Beppo, San Diego: 4 reviews and 3 photos


A neighborhood restaurant where guests feast on family platters of real, immigrant, southern Italian specialties in a boisterous, celebratory environment that recalls the Italian-American supper clubs of the 1940s and ?50s.

Favorite Dish: Geez...where do you want me to start. As soon as our group of 9 people settled down to celebrate a birthday, we ordered our appetizers (or Antipasti) which included baskets of Garlic Bread, Fried Calamari and Pan Fried Fresh Mozzarella. Next came the Mixed Green Salad (or Insalate) with prosciutto, cheese and olives.

For dinner we ordered Linguine in Red Clam Sauce, Chicken Marsala with fresh mushrooms, Ravioli with meat sauce, Chicken Cacciatore, Meat Balls and Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp.

Since it was a birthday dinner we had to have dessert, so we ordered the Buca Bread Pudding Caramello as well as the Chocolate Cannoli.
