Allen and I went to Atlantic City a few days for restaurant week, and to getaway from concrete city for some fun and relaxation. On Monday, March 6, we had lunch at Bally's Italian restaurant, Buca di Beppo. This Italian family food style restaurant featuring Jersey native Chef Edwin Neris, offers a diverse menu and everything looks so yummy. For restaurant week, participating restaurants offer select menu items with lunch costing $15.17 and dinner $33.17 per person. It is a real value and a great way to try different restaurants in Atlantic City.

Buca di Beppo
We both ordered the same thing, caesar salad, spaghetti with meatballs, and mini chocolate chip cannoli's and loved everything we ate. We were first brought a warm bread basket with olive oil and balsamic vinegar to dip into, and I had to control myself from eating it all since I love bread so much. The dinning room features an open concept dining space, very clean and nice decor on the walls, ample sized dining tables and comfortable seating. The staff and waiter were all friendly and professional.

The caesar salad was tasty and just the right size, and the spaghetti and meatballs was so satisfying with al dente pasta just as we prefer it. The 1/2 pound meatball was tender and full of flavor, and one of the best we ever had. The marinara sauce was so good, a little sweet and savory. This was the perfect balance of a traditionally prepared Italian dish and we appreciate that. The cannoli's were great with the perfect crunch and a rich creamy center with mini chocolate chips, and a delectable culmination to an amazing meal.

We really loved the food and overall had a wonderful experience eating here, and will return to Buca di Beppo next time we visit Atlantic City.
