Love this cozy little place and hit it for lunch and my guests loved it! Quaint, cozy and lovely! Amazing food, healthy and yummy.
This place is always amazing! I visit multiple times when I am in Philadelphia.
It was cold sitting by the door when it opened but otherwise it was a perfect night. Will be back many times!
Great restaurant. Hard to read the menu because of how dark it is inside.
Good food, good atmosphere. Salted Caramel dessert was amazing!
Amazing food! Staff was wonderful and the ambiance was serene! Definitely recommending for a date night!
The food is fabulous ... the atmosphere and service not so much. My husband and I shared several small plates, pizza, meatballs, and a bottle of wine. We received our three small plates in rapid-fire delivery but did not receive our bottle of wine until we were almost done with the small plates ... and we were not eating fast as we were waiting for our wine. Our two top was at the opening between the bar and open kitchen ... worst location ever. The amount of traffic sprinting past our table was a bit maddening. I recommend that you ask for a table along the wall not the aisle and definitely not at that opening / service area. We were lucky our table was next to the open kitchen as diners up front were wearing their coats it was so chilly inside ... in winter request a table toward the back. As the staff cleared tables, it would be nice if they didn't swing their dirty dish bins over our table ... gross. The interior is finished with hard surfaces, so it is quite loud to begin with ... and to have servers slam down plates, glasses, and utensils to set the tables is icing on the cake. I'm completely gutted that the atmosphere and service were disappointing as the food is really good.
Good food generally. Good variety. Food this time was a little salty.
Food and service were fantastic as always! Meatballs are such a stand out. Table for two was a little tight, but hardly a complaint.
Barbuzzo remains a charmer. The shaved salad delights all senses, the fig vin cotto elevates the silky ricotta, and the salted caramel budino is the perfect end to any and all meals here. Oh, and the Philly Negroni is one of the best uses I've come across for the fine local Bluecoat gin.
Food was very salty. Portions were small.
Always wonderful service and food! Salted caramel budino is the best dessert in the city!
I’ve been many times before but I always forget how incredible it is. The octopus, beet salad, sheep milk ricotta, tiramisu, and bread pudding were incredible. I would go again tomorrow.
My wife and I returned to Barbuzzo after not being there for a couple of years. Our meal was just as excellent as it was on those other occasions. We shared four dishes--all really terrific--followed of course by the amazing Budino for dessert. Our server was extremely competent, helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Despite the lively crowd and tight spaces, we did not feel cramped or unable to converse easily. We will not wait so long to return!
Amazing flavors. I almost wish the dishes were a little smaller so that I had room to enjoy more of them!
While there I had probably one of the best, if not the best, pizzas and tiramisus I have ever had
Great food, great service!
Great pizza and attentive Services
Space is tight, noise level doesn't allow for conversation, and lighting doesn't allow for easy menu reading, but the energy and consistently excellent food makes that all seem meaningless.
Always a great work-lunch spot with reliably excellent food and professional hospitality.
Very nice - came out for restaurant week. Great service - great food!
The restaurant week Manu was a great deal for the amount of great food you get. The service was very attentive and friendly. The atmosphere cozy and fun. Would love to come again. Highly recommend the meatballs and the caramel desert!
Food was unusually disappointing today! Fish was dry and unseasoned. The same menu was executed so well just a few weeks before!
We went for restaurant week. We had a 2 pm reservation for two but there were three of us so we had to sit at the bar. It was packed. I enjoyed the arancini. The others got roasted vegetable antipasti and the ricotta appetizers. They were very good as well. I had the branzino. It was really good, as was one of the pasta dishes. The rigatoni with pork ragu was just ok. We shared the desserts. A tiramisu, an olive oil cake, and something else that was pudding-like. They were good but not spectacular. But for $20 for three courses it was a deal. I’d definitely go back to try other things.
Delicious as usual. Always love the sheep’s milk ricotta and budino. Today I tried the tiramisu and it was bomb of course.
The food was just amazing!!!
My friend and I went to Barbuzzo for resturant week. We both loved it! Sharing each course, we started with the lightly smoked artic char crostone, and barbuzzo meatballs. To following we had the braised shortrib, and pan seared gnocchi. Ending the night with the tiramisu, and our favourite dish of all, the salted caramel budino, you cannot go to Barbuzzo and not have the budino!
It was good but too crowded snd hardly hear anything. Other than that excellent restaurant
We were there for restaurant week. Food was very good, quick service, nice atmosphere. We strongly recommend it!
We came for dinner during Restaurant Week and fully enjoyed it! I expected smaller portions than usual, but we had more than enough to eat. My favorites were the ricotta (included with the Restaurant Week menu) and short rib. The space itself is a little crowded and drafty when the door opens, but the food and service are excellent.
Great food and service as always.
Noise level is high and tables are close together so conversations are not exactly private.
The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was beautiful. The food was only alright and terribly overpriced.
Good all food very good w/return
Excellent food and cocktails. Just a warning: tables are very close, so if you are claustrophobic or a larger person you might not be comfortable.
Amazing food as always. Chef Sabatino's influence is noticeable with the new dishes on the menu.
Cozy little spot with good food.. We enjoyed it there.
It's a really tight space, but the food and service make up for the brushing of elbows and lack of private conversation. Highly recommend getting the bread pudding!
We had a Restaurant Week Menu and enjoyed the food very much! Service was excellent and the food delicious
