The Violinist and her classmates are studying the Middle Ages and the Catholic faith . Their facilitator thought it would be much cheaper to visit Buca di Beppo restaurant instead of paying airfare to the Vatican. The moms agreed.
We arrived a little early and just waited out in the parking lot. There were statues around the building and each one was wrapped in large Christmas lights. While waiting, I was able to take a photo of The Violinist without her going into a royal fit.
The facilitator requested The Pope’s Room. This little room sits twelve. Perfect for us. The round wooden thing in the middle that is holding a bust of the Pope, is a large Lazy Susan. Notice the walls.
I really liked the menu and thought it was funny enough to take a photo. That should be me on the front cover. lol
I wanted to take a picture of how they served the pizza. They placed the long pizza stones on top of tall tomato cans. I thought that was clever. After taking the picture, I noticed it looks like they are serving the Pope’s head on a tray. Poor guy.
One of the doorways going through the restaurant is painted like Italy’s flag. You can see the map on the left. Notice the walls.
The Ladies Powder Room. Notice the walls. One of these young girls said, “Look! While you’re going to the bathroom, you get to look at someone’s naked butt!” I decided that wasn’t a restaurant I was going to bring my youngest daughters to, just yet.
Remember all the walls? There is not one free space on any walls or ceiling in that restaurant. We spent 20 minutes after the meal, just looking around. Thankfully, The Violinist wasn’t too interested in looking carefully.
The class was given chef hats.
Afterwards, they got goofy.
It was a really fun day and the pizza was wonderful!
