Any time I get the chance, I love to head to the suburbs of Williamson County’s Cool Springs and eat at Buca di Beppo. I know it’s a chain restaurant, but I think it is one of the better ones.
It’s one of those places where you can order either a huge meal and eat on it for days, or just get a single portion serving and only eat on it for a couple of days!
Last night my bf and I were celebrating yet another closing (we both love helping people with their home purchases) and went to eat there. He had the penne arrabiata (spicy sausage with penne and marinara sauce) and I had the chicken parmagiana (Sp?) We both enjoyed our dishes – I like the way they did the chicken, with just a little bit of prosciutto on the top. And I LOVE the marinara sauce they serve here. It seems so fresh with chopped up tomatoes and just the right amount of seasoning.
Of course we had the delicious bread (you could fill up just on that!) and a mixed salad, which was wonderful and featured two olives – loved them!
I also love the decor there – the pictures on the walls are hilarious and the ambiance takes you back to 1950s Italy.
If you get the chance, definitely go eat at Buca di Beppo – 1722 Galleria Boulevard Franklin, TN 37067!
