Great food and the hot mulled wine was great on a cold day. Great warm outdoor setup also. Will be back!

I have been wanting to have dinner here for years! I have heard great reviews and ordered some of the most popular dishes. However, I wasn’t impressed. I started with the fungi pizza and it was good pizza but not great. I tried the warm wine and it was very good. I then shared the Bronzino and gnocchi. The Bronzino looked amazing but was fair in taste, I probably wouldn’t order it again. The gnocchi was very good, light and fluffy. I then ended my meal with the dessert that everyone orders and raves about. I can’t see why people rave about the dessert. I wasn’t a huge fan. This restaurant is cute for date night, but if I were to go again I would order different entrees. I sat inside, but I would definitely sit outside next time because they have cute outdoor seating with heat lamps. The server was very attentive and nice.

Everything was honestly fantastic. Our server was incredible! I cannot remember her name but she was attentive, very kind, and warm! The food was excellent! I think the whipped ricotta somehow tastes even better than I remember! The gnocchi were little pillows of heaven, and the beet salad was cream and crunchy because of the delicious combination of goats milk cheese and kale! And of course, we had the salted caramel mousse for dessert. Such a staple and ALWAYS great! Thanks for everything!

Delicious paella and chicken liver foie gras mousse that were well worth the price. Our waitress was attentive and sweet and made our outdoor dining experience enjoyable.

I came here with one of my best friends at his suggestion. Never been before and will absolutely dine here again. He had the papas bravas and the gnocchi for dinner; I had the squash arancini and the squid ink pasta. We both tried each other’s dishes and I cannot stress enough how delicious everything was. We also tried the salted caramel pudding for dessert at his suggestion and it was excellent. Great job!

I’m not one to leave negative reviews, but we chose this restaurant for an extremely special occasion to us - and to say we were disappointed is an understatement. We were seated close to a heating lamp that the host couldn’t turn on. We were told that someone would be back to replace the propane tank shortly. We waited in the cold for 30 minutes before throwing our hands up and requesting the bill. The drinks and appetizer we got beforehand were mediocre at best and was certainly not worth the cost and time we spent in the freezing cold waiting for someone to turn on the heating lamp/ the waiter to come by to place our entree order. When we asked for the bill because it was too cold for us to eat outside without a heat lamp, we didn’t even get so much as an apology.

Needless to say, I don’t think we’ll be back.

Limited menu. Food was good, nothing special.
Black shower curtain dividing the diners outside felt cheap and skimpy compared with the effort placed by other restaurants.

Great food, great outdoor service on NYE with all COVID restrictions. All courses and drinks were excellent, came out in timely fashion and they did a good job keeping patrons warm with heating lamps and a sectioned off tent.

We had a delightful time dining outside in a small enclosed cubicle for 2, which was plenty warm with an undershirt, shirt and sweater. Probably would have been a little chilly out from under the covered areas. Service was prompt, attentive and friendly. Fig and celery salad was terrific. Branzino grilled to perfection. The gnocchi with pancetta was delightful. Portions were tidy but filling. Decent value. A welcome holiday respite from dining in and leftovers.

The outdoor dining set up is so great. They have curtains between tables so you are safe from other patrons and they have heaters at each table. 10/10 recommend because the food is also delicious

Was looking forward to having dinner at this restaurant -AND- It Did Not Disappoint. This restaurant was recommended by two separate groups of friends over the past few months. Wonderful experience on a warm December Saturday evening. All of the dishes on the menu are a bit different, very interesting and they were all delicious - from Starters thru Dessert. Our server, CHRISTINE, was great = knowledgeable, friendly, efficient and unfailingly nice & patient with all of our many questions. Thank You.

It’s been a minutes since our group ventured out into the wild for dinner, and Barbuzzo crushed it. The food was excellent, they put us as close to a heater as possible and our waitress was great.

We ordered:
Ricotta - so smooth and flipping delicious

Burrata - this comes with veggies on the side of it and with this block of bread underneath it. It was delish.

Sweet Potatoes - these were good, just not our favorite

Margherita Pizza - I love extra sauce on my pizza and this was just perfection!!

Uovo Pizza - if you enjoy brussel sprouts, get this!! It was phenom.

Budino - this is their best thing on the menu. We got two for the table and easily could have had two more. So. Good.

Thanks for a great night!

It was a great meal ane evening. My only issue was during the course of making reservations I had left 2 messages trying to get clarity on Covid restriction and never got a call or anyone to answer the phone. which was frustrating. but food and staff were excellent.

Barbuzzo has the best Gnocchi and Arancini. The shaved Brussels salad is phenomenal as well. Paired with a glass of Sangria, that’s match made in heaven.

Needed a decent place that had indoor dining available for a date - was very pleased with the service and food here! Been here a few times before COVID and glad to know it's still a great place to eat.

Highly recommend the Uovo pizza and Whipped Ricotta
