The History of Buca
The first Buca di Beppo opened its doors in 1993 in the basement of a Minneapolis apartment building. Since then, we’ve grown to over 100 locations worldwide. Our mission is to capture the fun and enthusiasm of an authentic Italian gathering along with delectable food. Every Buca di Beppo restaurant offers an eclectic setting designed to make every occasion a party! Our dishes are inspired by the cuisine enjoyed for generations in villages throughout Italy. Our dishes are served family-style, meant to be shared by the entire table. Nothing brings a group closer together than trying a bit of this and a taste of that. Buca has the perfect flavor and atmosphere for any gathering.
