From start to finish, Buca di Beppo is sure to give you one of the best meals Austin has to offer, with plenty of fresh ingredients and delicious modern creation, mixed in with traditional Italian favorites, giving everyone something to cheer about. Of course, the most important item on any Italian food menu is the pasta, and that's where Buca di Beppo delivers in spades. They have your traditional fettuccine alfredo, spaghetti (with marinara, meat sauce, or meatballs), and ravioli, but they also carry so much more. Their Linguine Frutti di Mare is a sight to beyond, a feast for the eyes, nose and tongue, combining the finest lingunie straight from Italy, with the freshest shellfish, shrimp and calamari; you could also try their delicious Fettuccini Supremo, fettucine tossed with fresh chicken, brocolli and red peppers in their creamy alfredo sauce.
If meat's more your speed, don't worry, they've still got you covered. They serve Chicken, Eggplant and Veal Parmigiana that's bar none, and is made with their own homemade marinara sauce. Other chicken dishes include Chicken Marsala, made with fresh mushrooms and the best Marsala wine, Lemon Thyme Chicken, marinated in garlic, thyme and red pepper, Chicken Saltimbocca, covered in prosciutto, sage, capers and artichoke hearts. They even have a Grilled Salmon with Pesto for fish fans, and Porchetta Rustica, pork loin topped with a wine sauce which contains vinegar, blueberries, hazelnuts and capers.
If you're looking for something to finish off the meal, Buca di Beppo has a great selection of desserts to choose from. The dessert menu includes Tiramisu made with homemade lady fingers, chocolate visuvio, a dense caramel fudge brownie served with ice cream and chocolate Sambuca sauce, and even fresh gelatto. Can't choose which is best for you? Try their Dolce Platter, which gives you their chocolate cake, homemade cheesecake and tiramisu all on one plate.
All the meal through, you're almost guaranteed to have a good time. From appetizers, to desserts, to tasty pasta and chicken dishes, Buca di Beppo gives apartment residents just what they need: good food, good environment without spending a fortune.
