Service was excellent. Food is unique and flavorful. Cheeseboard was excellent with good variety and paired jellies. Duck pasta rich and flavorful. Goat cheese app great. Would recommend highly.
Excellent beet salad and budino for dessert! The mushroom pizza was a bit under done but very good.
We had a good experience. Cocktails were good as was the food. My only complaint was that we were squished at a table by the door which was uncomfortable for us and made getting our food awkward.
Excellent food, beautifully prepared and flavorful! The service was impeccable!!! A wonderful experience. I highly recommend!!
The food was impeccable and the staff so welcoming and attentive !
Barbuzzo is my first stop when I get to the city. I love everything about it! The food, drinks and service are all top notch. Prices are very fair. Can’t wait to get back! Thanks for always giving us a great experience.
Tight seating, but overall atmosphere was great. Didn’t mind sharing a bit of convo with our neighbors. Food was like nothing I have ever had. Started with the cheese plate-moved to the octopus and scallop for our mains, and then finished with a whipped wonder of a dessert in a mason jar! Heaven paired with an espresso! The specialty cocktails were a home run ❤️
Not what I expected. Barbuzzo is such a hard restaurant to get a reservation to and I always thought it was because of how great the food was. After dining here, I now know that it’s because the restaurant is so tiny and they try to jam customers in like sardines. We were too close to the table next to us, it almost felt like we were all sitting at the same table. The waiter’s behind was so close to my face while he tried to maneuver around the tables- it was uncomfortable. The hostess was very rude and unwelcoming and she wasn’t at the host stand for the first five minutes of standing at the door. The food was subpar and not as expected from the menus description and quite frankly had no flavor.
Food was not as impressive as I remember. The mediterranean plate was small. Service was terrible. Unfriendly and not attentive. Budino was still yummy!
Wonderful food. Fresh ingredients. Imaginative menu. The bronzino was terrific.
One of our favorite restaurants in Philly! The host, Greg, did a terrific job tonight in making us feel important.
Barbuzzo is a gem! A cozy atmosphere, a tight menu, and exceptional quality
Delicious as always! My go-tos on the menu are the sheep’s milk ricotta and the blood orange salad! So delicious!! All of the pizzas are amazing as well - can’t go wrong with any of them!
Lunch after the flower show. Excellent food!
We have been to the sister Spanish restaurant across the street and decided to try their Mediterranean restaurant. However, it was really a tapas restaurant with small and medium plates you are expected to share and they arrive in any order. Not what we were expecting.
Our dinners were delicious especially the kohlrabi Caesar salad.
We love Barbuzzo so it is difficult to criticize but the restaurant is way too dark. Please make it easier to read the menus and see what we are eating.
It was a great meal with a mixed age group. There were some slight service areas which could have been improved upon. The service started strong, but as the night when on the timing was off, and the server was less attentive.
We visited for lunch. It was a good place for personal size pizza and hamburgers.
Barbuzzo is my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia! Everything I have ever tried, even things I don’t think I’ll like, has been outstanding and I’ve never had a bad bite of food here. We ordered the sheep’s milk ricotta, Spanish Octopus, roasted mushroom arancini, pan seared gnocchi, and salted caramel budinos. Again everything was delicious, but the roasted mushroom arancinj was mind blowing! My ONLY complaint is that the Lardo pizza, easily the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life, is no longer on the menu. If you’re looking for an amazing meal Barbuzzo is the place to go
I am a foodie. This is an A+. Always delicious! One of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. The food is consistently on point!
Date will husband. Absolutely loved it, amazing service and food is never disappointing.
The food and the service at Barbuzzo was excellent. We went on a busy Saturday night but were not rushed at all. The food was cooked to perfection, the waiter very attentive without being annoying. We will definitely go back and have already recommended Barbuzzo to someone.
Honestly did not love the food and the service was sub par.
My friend did me a favor by recommending this place. I wasn't even hungry when I came in because I had a late lunch and yet I ate every bite! The gnocchi with guanciale was so so good! I did take issue with the ratios of mushrooms to gnocchi and the waiter agreed with me. Still, the dish was so good! I loved the broth and the texture from the greens. I would have licked the bowl if I could...
I'd heard so much about the salted caramel budino. It's no joke. That is one stupidly delicious dessert. Ate every bite.
Got a great wine pairing recommendation from my waiter.
The space was cool with all the wood.
All in all, a great experience but docking a star was for my ratio comment.
Great spot before the theater! Love the plate size and sharing. Food was delicious and so were the cocktails!
Such a cozy spot with amazingly fresh and unique dishes.
Wine selection is great as well.
Only thing to say is that it was a flawless meal
Amazing food and service. I’d go back in a heart beat. Love Safran Turney Hospitality- they do not disappoint!
Food is fantastic! Think European small plates. A little bit of this, and a little bit of that! Food comes out as it is ready, bubbly hot and delicious. We couldn't wait for the next plate to try! Will be back!!
Pasta was disappointing but it’s return was not a problem.
Unfortunately we were very disappointed. We had high hopes since all of our friends recommended us trying Barbuzzo. Maybe we just ordered the wrong items but 3 of the 4 dishes were so salty we didn't eat. The squash ravioli was excellent. Would love to try it again but doubt the wife is going to go back since there are so many restaurants in the area.
First time going to the restaurant love the idea of the small sharing plates we felt that we could sample more of the menu with a few small plates flavor of food and quality of food were excellent I would highly recommend
Barbuzzo was recommended by a friend and you didn’t disappoint!
Good thing that I checked my bill before I signed. The bill was much higher than the statement
He said it's the new computer problem and gave me a new one to sign and it's still the wrong higher number. The wrong number showed up in joy cell phone. They told me will be corrected
This is the third day my credit card site still has the wrong number.
What is strange is that every time the error bill is always higher than the food statement. never give me a cheaper meal. Wish everybody watch out before you sign
Love the menu - not run of the mill ingredients. Fresh and healthy.
It was an office lunch out for 4. We had a noon reservation. The restaurant was 1/3 full. Our waiter was attentive and understood our issue for needing to be back at work by 1:30 as well as our companion’s gluten allergy. I had the farro salad. It was very good. Small portion, but I was glad of that. I had to have the salted caramel budino which is insanely delicious. You must try it. One of us got the margherita pizza - it was cut into sixths and I had a piece. It was ok. A bit chewy. Another had the branzino and LOVED it. The 4th had the beet salad and loved it. My only real criticism was that the salad meals came out first and it was a full 5-10 mins before the pizza came, and another few mins for the branzino. I love this spot. Wish it was a bit wider!! Recommended.
A tried and true for lunch, but I was disappointed to see more pizza and sandwiches and fewer pasta options recently. The cheese plate is always a hit. I wish there were a green salad. The dishes are often too salty, but we curb that by asking them to go easy on the salt. Atmosphere is nice, but cramped seating. Decent wine by the glass selection. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive.
Very good food. Fun social ambiance
Always great food and service
