Buca di Beppo operates a chain of Italian restaurants with 99 locations in 25 U.S. states, five locations in England and one in Mexico.

The restaurants are known for pasta, dinner entrees, pizza and salads in large family-style portions designed for sharing. The menu features Northern and Southern Italian favorites like Chicken Marsala, Fettuccine Alfredo and Veal Parmigiana.

Other entrees offered at Buca di Beppo include: Baked Ravioli, Chicken Limone, Chianti Braised Short Ribs, and Oven-Roasted Salmon.

In September 2008, Planet Hollywood Inc. agreed to purchase the Buca di Beppo chain for $28.5 million and is no longer publicly traded. The company moved its headquarters from Minneapolis to Orlando in 2012.

Buca di Beppo opened its first NYC restaurant in Times Square in March 2013.


The first Buca di Beppo restaurant opened in the basement of an apartment building in downtown Minneapolis in the summer of 1993. By 1996 there were three Buca di Beppo restaurants in the Twin Cities, one in Milwaukee, WI, and one in Palo Alto, CA. Also at that time, BUCA, Inc. was formed as a private corporate entity to support the growth and development of Buca di Beppo restaurants.

In the spring of 1999, with 20 Buca di Beppo restaurants in neighborhoods across the United States, BUCA, Inc. went public and began trading its stock on the NASDAQ exchange under the symbol BUCA. By the end of 2001 the company had grown to 68 restaurants.
