REVIEW: Buca di Beppo - New Location at Celebration

If you have been a ComeSeeOrlando fan since the beginning, you may have caught my previous article on how to do Christmas, Italian-style at Buca di Beppo. Way back then (in 2013), I was reporting on a South Florida location, and hoping we had one closer than we did here in Central Florida (Maitland). Well, it seems that the Buca gods heard my plea, because they recently decided to grace us with a brand new location in Celebration, just minutes from my home. I don't think I've ever been so happy to have such a tempting assortment of calories so accessible, but I would gladly accept a few additional pounds for this! (Don't judge... there's a big menu to work through, after all. It's my duty!)

A Buca di Beppo Christmas!

Almost 18 years ago, a young Texas girl with very limited food interests married a young Italian guy... and when I say "Italian", I mean 'family around the table for a few pounds of pasta every Sunday' kind of Italian. It was quite a cute love story, with one serious flaw - the girl loathed Italian cuisine. This made many a Sunday and holidays very awkward, to say the very least. Then one day, quite out of the blue, something magical happened. That girl woke up with quite the taste for Italian delights! It's true - suddenly, she craved baked ziti, lasagna, ravioli, manicotti, even eggplant parmigiana! Since then, it's been smooth sailing for this couple in their edible pursuits. 

Yes, that girl was me. I've come to realize that I didn't like Italian food because I had never really been exposed to good Italian food. After many years of being led to some of the best examples of authentic Italian cuisine in Florida, I've come to consider myself somewhat of a connoisseur. After all, I am still a picky eater.
