Just minutes from Walt Disney World, in the town of Celebration, is a new Italian restaurant. Buca di Beppo serves up some awesome food in a family-style environment. Here is our review of the setting, the food and the team of Buca di Beppo Celebration.
The outside of the restaurant may appear unassuming, but when you walk inside there is so much to see. The walls are painted in a deep burgundy color and covered with photos, holiday lights, and artwork. The photograph of Big Joe is displayed prominently at the entrance. Big Joe is the founder of Buca di Beppo. His first restaurant was in a basement and many of the Buca de Beppo restaurants do not have windows so as to replicate that same effect.
Each area of Buca di Beppo is sectioned off into a themed room. From the wine room and the Pope room, to the Celebrity/Mafia room, the Trellis room and the Bar room you will want to take some time to walk through and admire the wall displays. Big Joe believed that he must be ready for anyone to visit, including the Pope himself.
The menus encompass everything from wines and specialty cocktails, to appetizers, entrees, sides and desserts. There are also some great choices for the little ones in your group via the Children’s Menu. If you are just looking for a cocktail and a quick bite, stop by from 3:00pm-6:00pm for Happy Hour. You can order small plates and the like from the Bar.
The food is simply amazing. Each dish can be ordered as a small (serving 2-3) or a large (serving 3-5). All items are served family style with the main serving plate being placed in the middle of the table allowing for each family member to serve a portion onto their individual plates. For appetizers we had the Mozzarella Caprese with basil-infused olive oil and the new Antipasto Platter. Both were very good and we would order them again. The Sparkling Sangria was our cocktail of choice and the sparkling wine gave this beverage a boost of flavor. Our entrees included Meatballs, Lasagna and the new Chicken Saltimbocca. There were three of us and we each chose a different entree as our personal favorite. For our side we chose the new Brussels Sprouts & Prosciutto. Even the little one in our group enjoyed this dish and when you can get a child to eat Brussels Sprouts, you know you have a winner! We also tried the Macaroni & Cheese from the children’s menu. This lovely dish is made with velvet cheese and we all enjoyed the flavor and texture of this dish. No meal is complet without dessert and Buca di Beppo did not disappoint. We decided to go with the Dolce Platter as our dessert option. The Double Dark Chocolate Cake was the favorite of the little one in our party. There was also Homemade Crustless Cheesecake, Italian Creme Cake and Tiramusu. All four of these options were delicious and the two adults in our party could not pick a favorite as they were all just that good.
Christoph and his Team are very professional with a smile at the ready for guests. Britt was our Server and she was very informative and knowledgable about the menu and the history of Buca di Beppo. Britt showed us around each of the rooms and explained a little bit about each one. We trusted her with menu suggestions as this was a first visit for us and she was absolutely spot-on with her recommendations. The Buca di Beppo Team made us feel right rat home from the minute we walked in until the moment we were leaving.
If you are looking for awesome Italian food, with excellent customer service, in an interesting environment then you must check out Buca di Beppo Celebration. You can find them at 6282 W. Irlo Bronson Memorial Hwy. Celebration, FL 34747.
