In Buca di Beppo it tastes like in Italy!

During our stay in Los Angeles, we were surprisingly invited by friends to a birthday party for Italians . Buca di Beppo, a charming, comfortable American-Italian restaurant at Universal Studios Hollywood, at the end of City Walk. It is very large and has several different dining rooms, each of which is decorated according to a special theme.

The Buca di Beppo is tastefully rustic and slightly cheesy in Italian style. Everywhere colorful lights hang and the walls are full of pictures. Some of them are quite bizarre and some funny, you do not even know where to look first.

Also snapshots of stars such as Sophia Loren, Joe Di Maggio or Pavarotti hang in this restaurant on the wall.

In the Buca di Beppo there are pasta in all variations, for example, chicken cannelloni, lasagna, ravioli al Pomodoro to spaghetti. Of course, there are also pizza in many flavors with a crispy, thin bottom and a fruity tomato sauce and Italian spices topped. The choices range from Arrabbiata, Veggie, Formaggio, Margherita to hot peppers. Salads and appetizers are not missing on the menu, of course, and then you can treat yourself to a delicious dessert.

Not everyone orders something for themselves in this restaurant. The portions are meant to last for several people. The small portions are sufficient for at least two persons, the large ones even for five persons. You get the ordered meals in huge bowls and served on plates.

Anyway, the big portions will fill you up and nobody will go home hungry.

The Bucca di Beppo at Universal Studios Hollywood has its own photographer, who goes from table to table. He makes free montage postcards with photos of the guests.

If you want, you can get an extra photo for the price of $ 15, as we would like to remember.

We spent a really nice and cozy evening with friends at Buca de Beppo. The food was excellent, the portions generous and delicious and the service very friendly and fast.

    Lovely wishes,


  • We just ate fresh pasta at home. I love Italian and have to give except for my favorite Italian here with us around the corner I had best eaten Italian in the EU. The pictures are very nice and you have the feeling of MAMA in the kitchen zusitzten. Lg Alex from

  • Dear Sigrid,

    that sounds great - I can not remember that there was "familiy style" somewhere ... but my stays are really long ago. I think that's great, that you can order a portion for several! However, the photos are familiar to me - that's the American style in the decor 😉 ... a matter of taste. But I wrote down your mail anyway. Next time I'm in LA, I'll stop by.

    Thank you for the interesting and helpful blog post!

  • That sounds great - eating like in a family. The decor is also unique - if I go to the US someday, I think of the restaurant 🙂 LG, Cynthia

  • Thanks for the interesting tip! The location reminds me of "Life is beautiful" in Frankfurt. Should you ever be here, I can only recommend a visit to "our" Italians.
    best regards

  • Since it looks great, I would definitely eat 🙂
