    The service was friendly -and prompt without being pushy. The vibe was lively and reminded me of Italian restaurants in Melbourne. Well done Barbuzzo - a great night out that didn’t break the bank.

    This was indeed a great place. We had really good food, and a great time. It was pretty loud, and it’s not a very big place. Our waiter was not very friendly. He kept taking away our menus. I never understand why business would want to take away the one thing that would allow them to sell me more stuff. I even tried to keep it and he just kept taking it. But other than that, it was a really good experience. We would definitely go back. We were happy we went there.

    I’ve been to Barbuzzo for lunch and found it to be very good. We decided to go to dinner there and made reservations. We arrived a bit early but a table has just opened. So great start. Grant it was a nice April night. The place was packed. So packed you truly couldn’t hear anyone. It made for a complicated catch up with family. The drinks were very good and creative. The ricotta app was very good and arrived within minutes of ordering. The food came out separately— I know this is a “restaurant thing”. But seriously, most people prefer to eat together and not spend time watching their friend eat. I wish Barbuzzo took a look at their practice of bringing food at their convenience and more for the enjoyment of their guest. But once everything came out, it was good— two pizzas, a beer salad and branzino. All foods were prepared very well. But got to say the formented root veggies with the seafood proved an off-putting flavor to an otherwise great piece of fish. In some ways the meal felt like we were speed dating dinner. We sat down. Had a cocktail, app, our dinners and got the check in under 50 minutes. Far too rushed, but given the extreme noise in the place, we were ok with hitting another spot for a nightcap.

    This is by far one of the best (if not the best) small Italian restaurant. Their pizza, bread, meatballs and all other dishes and small plates are outstanding. 5 stars and will return.

    Really cool restaurant. Small space, our table felt a little cramped at times. My boyfriend and I shared the arancini, meatballs, octopus and steak - plenty of food for the two of us, and the steak was outstanding. Would recommend trying to octopus, it was very similar to grilled chicken. Great service, more than willing to explain the menu in detail for us.

    As always, food and service was excellent. I’m all about city living but Barbuzzo is just too jammed in. If you are a deuce and inside, you cannot not be part of your neighbors conversation. It does impact the experience.

    Busy little restaurant with a good vibe. Our server was spot on, as was the food. Everything we ate was great, but the whipped ricotta and the duck cassolette were just remarkable. Also, the pricing was very reasonable for the quality.

    We shared the pear salad, meat balls 2very large ones and a margarita pizza we took home most of it. Ended with the Salted Caramel dessert which was excellent I had a Pinot noir which was soft and tasty my husband had a alcohol free beer Food came quickly and waiter asked how each course was. The dining room was packed for an early Sunday night date. The dining room was s very very tight so know that. Thought it was a good value for the money

    A great meal, will definitely go again. Charred broccoli appetizer and beet/kale salad were both delicious as were the lobster pappardelle and the grilled octopus. Our server was attentive and topped off our water glasses frequently. Save room for dessert, the two we shared were an outstanding finish to a memorable meal.

    Food was fantastic and some of the best we’ve had in Philadelphia. Everything was great except for a comment made by the host when we came inside to let them know we had arrived. It was very cold and apparently we were supposed to wait behind the curtain, but there was no signage or indication. It threw off the experience a bit, but was quickly made up for with the great food and service we experienced afterwards.

    Had a nice dinner with my friends. Interior was nice and moody, if a little cramped. Food was excellent, we came for Restaurant Week and their prix-fixe menu had a nice selection. Ricotta with bread was delicious, my beet salad was also nice and light, but the creste rigate was a bit underwhelming with too much pasta for the amount of duck and sauce that was prepared. The curlew's call cocktail was nice, and the budino for dessert was a great end to the night. Will recommend to friends.

    We were there very late on a Saturday afternoon, so it wasn't as busy as Barbuzzo had been every other time I've been (save for 5:00 pm on a weekday!), but it was another great meal there. We do wish they would bring back some of the key cocktails that have been winners in the past, like the Sanguinello and the Queen Bee—we very much miss those and ask about them each time we go—but the whipped ricotta, and the Margherita and Uovo pizzas were all outstanding. One of my favorite places in Philly!

    This was a lovely experience. I had a discrepancy in the text msgs I received about checking in and my Open table reservation but it did not impact out visit. Thank goodness. I booked weeks in advance. I went with friends for restaurant week. We actually didn’t order the restaurant week menu but we enjoyed everything we ordered. The drinks were delicious and our server was fabulous. All of the servers seem to jump in and help each other. I will definitely go back.
