Minneapolis-Buca Inc., operator of a chain of about 94 Buca di Beppo family-style immigrant southern Italian dinnerhouses, is slated to begin testing a menu featuring smaller portions at three of its restaurants in November.

The entrees, which serve two, are geared to make Buca di Beppo accessible to smaller parties, increase menu variety and improve price value, according to Joseph P. Micatrotto, Buca's chairman, president and CEO. Menu items, which are expected to range in price from $8.95 to $13.95, are still being finalized, Micatrotto said. Buca said it plans to expand the test in early 2004 to include 17 additional restaurants in Pennsylvania, Minneapolis-St. Paul, and Phoenix. The chain said it would continue to offer some of its family-style options for larger parties. -Nation's Restaurant News

The new Hawaiian Atkins Plate features large portions of barbecue chicken, beef and short ribs topped with eggs on a bed of greens, priced at $6.25 for a regular. -Nation's Restaurant News
