And that’s not all – the menu has recently been enriched with new additions such as meat sauce, spicy Italian sausage, and chicken parmesan.
Speaking of chicken parmesan, it’s a culinary masterpiece that I had the pleasure of experiencing. Bursting with flavor and crafted to perfection, this dish is a testament to the dedication that By The Bucket pours into each creation. What truly stood out for me was the bread – crispy, well-seasoned, and the ideal complement to the flavorful fillings.
And it’s not just about the main course. By The Bucket ensures a complete dining experience by offering an array of Pepsi beverages and salad options. When it’s time for dessert, you’re presented with the delightful choice of tiramisu or New York Cheesecake – the perfect finish to your Italian feast.
