In 1993, the basement of a Minneapolis apartment building was transformed into an Italian restaurant, becoming the first Buca di Beppo. The owners soon found themselves riding a wave of popularity and marinara sauce as they opened new restaurants across the nation. Today, the eatery occupies 97 locations nationwide, from San Francisco to Times Square.
At each location, chefs maintain the northern and southern Italian flavors that made the original so popular, with a few American twists. Then they serve it up in massive, family-style portions, making Buca di Beppo a favorite place for hungry families and groups of friends.
For starters, the chefs bake up batches of Cheesy Bread Florentine, a colorful combo of spinach, roma tomatoes, and garlic sprinkled over Italian bread and sealed in place with fresh, melted cheeses. Entrées are prepared with an eye toward quality and quantity, both of size and selection, complete with Veal Parmigiana, Baked Ziti, and classic Italian-American staples like Ravioli and Lasagna. And in keeping with the convivial atmosphere, they also serve truly decadent desserts. The Colossal Brownie Sundae towers above other sweets with six scoops of ice cream and tiers of sundae trimmings.

You have one day to find the best day spas in Sacramento—and you want to squeeze in every ounce of relaxation possible. So you can truly unwind, we took away the stress of planning the day from start to finish with this itinerary for a Sacramento spa day.
A light but filling breakfast with a balance of protein and fiber will best prepare you for your spa day. Try the Denver crepe with scrambled eggs at Crepeville or the oatmeal with soymilk and fresh fruit at Jamba Juice. Make sure to stay hydrated, too—your body will need lots of fluids to flush out toxins.
Before your first treatment, take some time to relax and let your stomach settle by meditating, reading, or taking a short walk.
Start with a full-body treatment that includes aromatherapy, such as the Body Glow treatment infused with rosemary, sage, and chamomile at The Spa Simply Skin or Serene Relaxation’s lavender body treatment.
Next, start from the bottom and work your way up. Save a mani-pedi for the end of the day, and use the morning to indulge in a different foot service, such as Thai reflexology at Sher-Thai Massage.
Guzzle water or herbal teas throughout lunch and choose a meal that’s satisfying but not too filling—you don’t want to feel uncomfortable during your massage. Try a soup-and-salad combo at Luna’s Café and Juice Bar.
As you did after breakfast, take a break to relax. We suggest a shopping interlude at Heart Clothing Boutique or a stop at Melange Boutique for one of its fashion consultations.
It doesn’t get much more relaxing than a signature massage. Try an Eastern or Western massage style at Body Continuum or relax with a custom integrated massage at Sacramento Massage Studio.
Following the massage, it’s time for a facial. Here, personalization is key, so head to a Sacramento day spa that offers a custom facial, such as Luxe Hair Lounge and Day Spa or Dandelion Spa.
Finish your skyward movement with a treatment for your topmost parts. The Westin Sacramento hotel’s Spa LaLé offers 25-minute acupressure or hot-stone massages for the face and scalp.
As you’re winding down, grab a light dinner somewhere nice. Pick a seafood restaurant such as Fins Market & Grill or choose from the wide selection of fresh, low-calorie cuisine at Seasons 52. You can also treat yourself to some aphrodisiac foods if you're gearing up for a romantic evening. Now is also the time for bachelorette parties to break out the champagne. And it can’t be said often enough: keep drinking water!
Pamper your hands and feet with an evening mani-pedi at New Happy Day Spa. Open until 10 p.m. daily, the spa offers luxurious Bronze, Silver, and Gold nail treatments, each more indulgent than the last.
Sacramento has become known as America's capital of farm-to-fork cuisine, and it’s easy to see why. Consider the geography surrounding the city: a whopping 70% of the land is either agricultural, forest, or open space, including the Sierra Nevada foothills and the Capay Valley. That means there are 7,000-plus acres of local farms that Sacramento restaurants can partner with to make farm-to-fork dishes. Many of these Sacramento farms still ship their products across the country, but regional restaurants have capitalized on an opportunity that's pretty much a chef's dream: pick up fresh produce in the morning, and serve it for lunch and dinner. Oliver Ridgeway is the executive chef at Grange Restaurant, a prominent restaurant in the city's farm-to-fork scene. He first made connections with growers at local farmer’s markets, and now he visits mosts of the farms he buys from regularly. "Local food tastes better," he says. "They pick it, you eat it the next day. Simple." But Ridgeway doesn't buy from local farms just because of the fresh taste. He's passionate about supporting a community, not to mention supporting a better environment. "Farmers work really hard to produce amazing ingredients that will supply our local restaurants, which helps the local economy," Ridgeway says. "It's great for our future. By supporting the farmers now, we will ensure the next generation is set up with nutritious and delicious food." Ridgeway gave us some of his recommendations for farms that grow the best organic produce in Sacramento. And, of course, he also clued us in on some places to eat in Sacramento where the chefs are dedicated to the farm-to-fork concept.Heirloom Tomatoes from Watanabe FarmsChef Ridgeway loves all the farms he works with, but one of his favorite relationships is with Heidi Watanabe of Watanabe Farms, who helps supply the restaurant with different produce year-round. “She grows pristine produce,” he says. “She specializes in heirloom tomatoes that are some of the best I have ever tasted!”Kale from Capay OrganicCapay Organic grows 130-plus fruit and vegetable varieties in the Capay and Imperial Valleys, on certified organic land. Green, red, and lacinato kale is grown year-round, along with other greens such as rainbow chard. The farm supplies to more than a dozen local restaurants, including Farmhouse Inn. There's a good chance you'll come across their produce in a main course such as Farmhouse’s roasted breast of guinea hen with grilled asparagus, leek potato puree, and celery soubise.Honeyloupe from Full Belly FarmFull Belly Farm grows many different varieties of melons perfect for late-summer snacking. Along with fresh watermelons in all colors and sizes, the farm produces honeyloupe, a sweet mix between a cantaloupe and honeydew with smooth, pale skin. Look for the farm’s melons at stores and markets around the city, and at Gather Restaurant in nearby Berkeley, where it’s served in the melon gazpacho.Farm-to-Fork Meals at Downtown Sacramento RestaurantsAside from Grange, locals and visitors alike can enjoy a farm-to-fork meal at these downtown Sacramento restaurants: Ella Dining Room and Bar: New American and French-style cooking made with seasonally and regionally sourced ingredients thanks to the Selland Family’s 20-year relationship with local farmers and ranchers. Kru: Chef and owner Billy Ngo prepares inventive Japanese dishes with the help of locally sourced ingredients. The Porch Restaurant & Bar: Chef Jon infuses Southern dishes with a Californian approach, using strictly local ingredients to make watermelon salads, skillet cornbread, and other regional classics.
