What Insiders Are Saying
Barbuto has been a West Village staple for a long time. Hit it for the pasta, the roast chicken, and the scene of single people hanging at the bar.
Love that chicken!!!
Great, creative food and wonderful, warm and friendly service. Highly recommend!
Perfect! Great lunch!
Paid $95pp for the Thanksgiving menu, the worst meal of my life. Everything was just badly seasoned, poor taste, overcooked or overly fried. The pasta was unsalty and basic and desert tasted like it was made out of apple syrup. Ohhh the Turkey, like it was spoiled, awful. Just a waste of money and a huge disappointment.
A gem of a restaurant! Shared kale salad and bruschetta to start. Then the gnocchi, hangar steak and bugatini carbonara. Everything was delicious!
Great, maybe New York's best, roast chicken. A simple but delightful menu, more than adequate wines by the glass. A great lunch after a hellish morning of meetings. Go out of you way and you won't be disappointed.
We had a wonderful lingering lunch at Barbuto. Our server could not have been friendlier and accommodating as a friend and I who had not seen each other in ages lingered long after the typical lunch hour with a cheese plate and one more glass of wine. Our lunch was outstanding.
Sunday night dinner with the kids. Great food and always love the atmosphere. Restaurant is around the corner from our house so always a good place for family or sometimes just for a date night without the kids it’s just as elegant for that.
Food was outstanding. The Kale salad is amazing. Roasted chicken is incredible- takes a while- so be patient- but worth the wait
Outdoor seating was especially nice for lunch although tables are a bit wobbly (staff fixed it though). Chicken and carbonara were outstanding.
Quintessential New York City date spot. You can’t beat it!
Food & service were both great as always! I look forward to next time!
Consistently fantastic! The menu offerings and food is always amazing. Love that there are seasonal changes and variations to the standbys like the hanger steak and gnocchi. Great wine list and drink menu. Atmosphere is upbeat and located within a cozy west village neighborhood location.
Great food and wonderful ambiance. This is not only a Top Chef Restaurant but it is a genuine West Village Restaurant and that is rare these days. If you have a special event the chefs table is fantastic. Done that for several birthdays and it’s always delicious!
Food was indeed good, but environment/atmosphere was more causal and louder than expected. It was definitely a great Italian restaurant, but it’s not necessarily one that I am dying to return to.
The was quite a bit of a lag between appetizers and dinner. The staff was nice and gave us two desserts for 5 people. This was all good since reps from the James beard foundation were with us
We went for lunch , looking for something relaxed with a bit of a step up in quality. It's perfect for that. Weather permitting, which it was when we went, the entire restaurant is opened up and becomes a large, partially covered piazza of dining. Very pleasant! The drinks and food are quite good too (Negronis and wine) (roast chicken, sauteed greens and gnocchi) . The only reason I don't give it all five stars is because there is nothing that makes you gasp and go "Oh, man!" That is fine by me- sometimes you just want a really good meal in a pleasant setting. Barbuto provides that. It's also really close to the Whitney and the High Line for all you tourists out there!
I finally made it to Barbuto after eight years in NYC and was a little underwhelmed. They have some standout dishes (burrata, bucatini) while others were okay to good. Service was friendly and food came out at a good pace but water and beverage service was slow and inattentive. I'd like to retry for weekend lunch/brunch where Barbuto is noted to excel. For the "trendy Italian" meal, I would opt for other spots in the neighborhood for dinner service.
Loved Barbuto!! The pasta was amazing. The chicken was a little too salty but was delicious! My new fav spot
Hands down the best meal that we had in NYC and we ate fine dining every night. We loved the casual atmosphere coupled with the excellent food. Service was above average with one oops - we had to ask for the bread that we saw everyone else enjoying. Johnathan Waxman was casually in house. A nice bonus for this Top Chef geek.
it was a special occasion and we wanted to go to a Michelin star restaurant to celebrate. the food was bad the service was mediocre and ambiance, i felt i was eating in someone's garage. terrible. Never eat here!!!
Overall, this is a great place. The pasta was cooked perfectly; however, my sauce was way too salty - pancetta was in it. Highly recommend the kale salade. Despite the salt, it was a very fun evening. Try it.
We had a great lunch.
Kale salad was fantastic!
The chicken the chicken the chicken!!!!! Amazing!!!
Everything was so tasty!! The kale salad, The eggplant sides are delicious, the plum cake desert to die for!!! Everything was outstanding...
I’ve been coming here for probably 10 years. It’s starting to show its age - the decor is the same, the garage doors are very 2005, and the menu isn’t particularly inventive or even unique. Like an apartment you’ve lived in for a decade, Barbuto needs a facelift and makeover. Food was quite delicious - except the veal main, which was basically veal pork belly. 80% fat. The three of us were splitting all courses (3 apps and 3 mains) and didn’t finish more then 20% of the veal. I was surprised the server didn’t notice and ask why.
It was great to be recognised from our last visit a year ago. Complimentary desserts went a long way to sweetening us up too. Looking forward to dining in the evening tonight. Will keep coming back each year for sure....
We love in Sydney and eveeytimw we come to NY
(summers) we cat wait to get to Barbuto to have the kale salad and carbonara pasta its amazing!
Barbuto never disappoints. The chicken and the kale salad are to die for. Truly yummy. Love the space but pretty noisy especially when not fully open due to weather.
Outstanding from beginning to end. Waited to have my first
Carbonara pancetta. It did not disappoint. Magnifique!
Very good as usual. Great time of the year to go, summer vegetables are amazing!
Fantastic place! You must try the heirloom tomato salad and the hanger steak. The service was PHENOMENAL. Well worth the trip down the the West Village.
Incredibly small portions for the money. Good flavor, but left still hungry...
We had a wonderful time....our server Matthew was outstanding and Chef Waxman went out of his way to make us comfortable-total gentleman. Enjoyed talking to him. Pasta dishes fantastic and a very fun place!!
waiter was brusque and just wanted to rush us out as quickly as possible. as i dine throughout the world i find that waitstaff who don't want to be working can't really hide it well. Such was the case here Food was fair, atmosphere good, overall impression: a big disappointment.
