Buca di Beppo

One of the restaurants we visited and had a great time, while we were in Chicago for my son's Spring break trip, was Buca di Beppo. As you have probably heard, their food portions are very generous and served family style. And it's a chain restaurant, as well as pretty touristy. However, I still think the place has a lovely atmosphere and the food are pretty good.

We requested a "kitchen table", yes, a table right in the kitchen. We could see a lots of actions going on there, the chefs and staffs were very friendly that we had their visits through our whole meal.

We odered way too many dishes for four people even though the server had warned us. My favorite was Apple Gorgonzola Salad: tart Granny Smith apples, spiced walnuts, dried cranberries and Gorgonzola cheese were tossed with fresh Romaine lettuce and their Italian vinaigrette. It was very refreshing and tasty!

Definitely, Buca di Beppo is a place for a crowd. Before being seated, you will get a tour of the restaurant - all the rooms and even through the kitchen. The overall decor are very entertaining, especially The Pope Room.
