    Because the restaurant limits 5 to a table, we had to make two reservations for 8 ppl. Two people were unable to come due to flight issues so there was only 6 of us. I called ahead of time and asked if we could put two tables together and the woman I spoke to said it shouldn't be a problem because we were coming early. When we walked in the hostess (more mature one) was quite curt/rude when I told them there were 6 of us and could we have our table together. She said she saw it on our reservation but made it clear to me they were making an exception. She must have said it two times. They ended up just pushing one table next to a seating area of 4. Not sure what the problem was, we were still going to spend money. I was with a group of nurses from out of town and their comment was "are all ppl in Philadelphia like that?"

    The food and our server were excellent. The tables are close together but not sure anything can be done to create more room between tables.

    The service was inattentive as was the kitchen staff. The salad was over dressed and over massaged, the pizza over sauced resulting in a crust that while well charred, was soggy. The octopus was cooked beautifully but woefully under seasoned. Overall it was a disappointing experience.

    I had been there before and believe it has slipped. The food was good, but I expected more. The gnocchi and pork chops were just fair. Maybe it was just a bad night. The waitress, however, was attentive and competent. I don't think it's the star most of its recommendations say.

    Service (server was Mickey) and food were both great. The ONLY thing keeping me back from giving it a five-star rating overall was that the cocktail I ordered seemed a little weak. But otherwise I would have given a perfect score to Barbuzzo. We would consider visiting the restaurant again, since the food and the service were good.

    As usual the food was outstanding. We arrived early for our reservation and were told to come back in 15 minutes. We came back and we’re told 10 minute. It was a 25 minute wait. Would have been nice if we weee camp’s a drink or something but no. Server was very good.

    Food was awesome, service was good and the food came out EXTREMELY fast. I mean we put in our order and each of the items came out at separate times but soooo quickly. The menu isn't very big but despite that, we found ourselves torn between a few different items. We agreed we would definitely go back to try the other things that we didn't get - but the pizza with truffled egg was awesome, the whipped ricotta is the best we've ever had and the pan fried gnocchi was great. The gnocchi could've been a bit more crisped up (we asked for it extra crispy) but overall the flavor was just so good. Definitely recommend for a date night.

    Every time I Come into Philly on business Barbuzzo is the first restaurant I eat at. Their food is unique and very delicious. Last night I had the Arancini and their steak option. They were both out standing. And for dessert I had their caramel budinno. I always have the budinno for dessert. There drinks are amazing and boozy. I had the honeybee and the espresso martini. I will definitely be having those drinks again. The only way you are guaranteed to get a seat without a 45 minute wait it’s by reservation. My suggestion is you make the reservation because Barbuzzo is that spectacular

    Barbuzzo is a beautiful restaurant with delicious items on its menu. The space is a little cramped. It is better for groups of four than parties of two because of the way the tables are positioned. The place is quite loud. They may have been understaffed when I was there, since everyone seemed to be in a rush. I hoped to order dessert, but our server asked us if we wanted our check immediately after we finished our entrees, which was disappointing and off-putting. Lastly, the drinks were strong to the point that they were not enjoyable.

    While the menu changes from time to time, the tagliatelle with some version of pasta is always great here--al dente, and flavorful. The list of wines by the glass is short, but moderately priced. The Rioja was nicely complex for this price point.

    I left a voicemail on Tuesday that we were celebrating a birthday and when I arrived, I let the host know. There was no recognition by our server or the manager. Our drinks (two beers) took 15 to arrive. Our server was not welcoming. We ordered a side of bread that was delivered by itself on a plate. We asked the server for some butter; she responded, “we don't have butter. That normally goes with the whipped ricotta.” Overall the food was nice, but the service was lacking, especially for a Tuesday night at 6:30 pm.

    Our server was fantastic. We ordered the olives and whipped ricotta to share. Both were delicious. I had the brozino which was very good. Someone else had the beef and said it was great and talked about how good the vegetables were. Someone else had the meatballs and they smelled amazing.I would definitely recommend
