Restaurant Review: Buca di Beppo

Esther Tandberg, Reporter

Life is all about making choices, and for some, satisfying your appetite is a compelling reason to choose right. Italian food is rich in flavor and when you take your first bite in most Italian foods you feel like you can continue eating even after you’re full.

One of the better Italian food restaurants in Hawaii is Buca di Beppo.  The beautiful Italian interior of the restaurant along with the glorious Italian smell fills the air accentuating its Italian-based background.

Within the kitchen where the food is prepared, Buca di Beppo hosts a table that you can reserve before coming to the restaurant so that  you can eat your dinner as well as watch and see how the chefs prepare the glorious food. The chef may even allow you to sample dishes for free. The kitchen table is definitely one way to get your full Buca di Beppo experience.

Some of these wonderful Italian foods, which I am proud to say are my favorites, include spaghetti, meatballs, Ravioli al Pomodoro and Penne Basilica.

Food portions come in  family size and small which feeds one to four people.

Birthday celebrations are valued at Buca di Beppo. When it is a customer’s birthday at the restaurant, the waiters encircle around the table and sing happy birthday to them. Birthday customers are even treated to a free dessert.

I have personally been to Buca di Beppo four times in a span of two years and have enjoyed every single experience. If you’re looking for a place that serves delicious Italian food, I’d definitely recommend Buca di Beppo.
