Sundays In This Neck of the Woods

Buca di Beppo Italian Restaurant is located at 3612 Tudor Boulevard in Austin, Texas.  While we were visiting family in Austin last week, we had the opportunity to have dinner at this interesting place!

The red and white checkered table cloths, and the rest of the decor all add to the cozy atmosphere.

The ceiling was an entertaining collage of photos ranging from Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin to photos of Italian landscapes.

I liked the black and white photo of a bride at the foot of the church steps on one wall....

 Photos and statues everywhere made for interesting browsing.

I feel like my photos don't really do the place justice.  It was fascinating!

Then there was the food!  First a basket of fresh cheesy Italian bread with oil of dipping!

Mr. Eva and I shared Penne Arrabbiata which was a delicious combination of spicy Italian sausage and crushed red pepper in a zesty marinara sauce with imported Italian penne pasta and ricotta and mozzarella cheeses.

 Matt and Angie shared the Ravioli al Pomodoro. which was ravioli stuffed with four kinds of cheese and served in marinara sauce.

Rosabelle chowed down on spaghetti and meatballs!

All entrees were fantastic and I can understand why this is Matt and Angie's favorite restaurant!  Check out the Buca di Beppo website to learn more by clicking on the link.

(I was not compensated for this review; we paid for our dinners.)

That looks like a fabulous place to eat! So much to look at and talk about while you wait for your food and the atmosphere...well, I can feel it through the computer screen here!
This would have to be the best place so far.

Fascinating place, I'm making a note of it. That ceiling is amazing! And any place that serves cheese bread with dipping oil is on my list!

I love Buca di Beppo in Houston. We had the rehearsal dinner there when our con got married. My favorite dish is chicken saltimbocca.

You should have ordered the chopped is the BEST! We go here every year in Mesa with a group of my friends and order dishes to share. It's delish!
