My husband and I seek out top rated mostly vegan , if possible, restaurants when we travel. Barbuzzo was recommended to us and..we were NOT disappointed !! Food was amazing. Service was some of the best I have ever come across. Everyone was kind , helpful and real. Whenever we travel to Philadelphia again, this treasure of a find will be top on our list to revisit. Wish you could be in Minneapolis!
LUNCH REVIEW: Wish they opened prior to 12pm (you can't even be seated if you arrive a few minutes early). But, the end result is a lovely meal and a great place for a business lunch.
Excellent attention from our waiter, Charlie. Low(er) noise level than usual (Monday night) was nice, too.
Great food the sheep’s milk ricotta was delicious. We ordered pizzas and the Uvo Pizza was amazing!
Super busy on a Saturday night with a great crowd. Didn't realize it was a small plate place but the food was an absolutely fabulous mix of flavors and textures that satisfied us for the evening, enhanced by a few brews at Chris' Jazz Club a few blocks away.
Always an amazing dining experience! Liz is the best waitress! Can’t wait to go back!
Usually love this place. First app was still frozen inside, Arancini. Waiter apologized, and we received a perfect app the second time around. Mushroom Roast was nice. Had 2 entrees, one pasta and one fish. Fish was great. Pasta was ok. Skipped dessert. Waiter was super busy and not overly personable. Looks as if there’s been some changes, and we overheard another waitperson explaining there’s a new chef. Things definitely a bit different and off. Hopefully it comes back to what it was. We’ll be back but will wait some before next visit.
Yum! Food is always great.
The food was amazing and the service excellent. We enjoyed the small plates, bring them out as they are ready, continuous dining & sharing. One thing: very loud and hard to have a conversation.
Delicious as always ... one of Philly's best spots consistently. Amazing cheese plate.
Outstanding food and very fresh ingredients. Would definitely recommend.
Barbuzzo is absolutely terrific... the food is great but nothing can top the Budino dessert ... heaven in a jar! Service is tops, too.
Straight five stars across the board! I usually grade on the high side, anyway, but Barbuzzo was outstanding! I wish there were six stars to give! Food was fantastic - every dish, no exceptions; and despite the packed crowd, our waiter, "Shane," was perfectly attentive without being obtrusive. Great menu recommendations, warm and personable! Go there if you can get a table!
I'm a repeat customer at Barbuzzo - it's in a great location, close to the theaters, lively neighborhood. The food and service are always superb. It's a little tight in there (they could use more room) but that also gives it a lively atmosphere.
Great food. Excellent drinks. Fantastic service. Very noisy but well worth a visit. We don’t live here but will recommend highly. Wish we had time to go back.
The portion size was adequate. We enjoyed the overall quality and style of the restaurant. Chairs were slightly uncomfortable but I suppose that was part o the rustic feel they were trying to go for. As for the food - the Funghi pasta was great but the pork meat that came on the gnocchi looked too messy and honestly, the dish could do without it!
Bustling place. We dined inside but they do have outside dining as well. Our server was Liz and she was great, very attentive. And the food was just wonderful! Fresh salads and the gnocchi was superb as well as the meatballs. We really enjoyed our meals and will be repeat customers.
Amazing food as always. We went and it happened to be restaurant week. We met a friend from out of town. He was very impressed. Will definitely come back. It really helps to make a reservation. They often fill up 2 to 3 months in advance for a weekend.
We love sitting at the bar watching the Chefs work
Incredible meal and service during Restaurant Week!
We went there during Restaurant Week. The food was delicious but they were extremely overcrowded and therefore the service/time getting things out of the kitchen were slow. Also the tables are extremely close together so you don't have any privacy and unfortunately the large group seated next to us were very loud. Would not have rated so high if not for the amazing food
Food was great and the Restaurant Week menu was a great deal! The noise level was pretty loud but you'll find that in most places on a Friday night in Philly.
excellent food - specials during restaurant week!!!
Great ambiance and the food was amazing.
Delicious food presented in the perfect manner.
Liz, our server, was not only a professional but a delight to interact with.
Best thin crust pizza in Philly! The margarita is exquisite, and the uovo pizza also blew us away. Highly recommend.
Went for the first time with friends during restaurant week. Great service, wonderful food. Definitely will return.
We went for a birthday and during restaurant week. The menu had great options to choose from and the food we got was delicious. Perfect portion sizes. Definitely recommend the fungi pizza and salted caramel budino! You won’t be disappointed
Service was quick and on point! Everything served was so fresh and delicious!
Delicious food. The lights kept dimming while we were there, which was annoying. It’s a bit cramped so I can’t imagine large groups would do well here.
Amazing place! Food is very very delicious. I love the environment.
The service seem to have deteriorated since the last time I was here. Food was meh.
Every dish was excellent. Will definitely go back
Amazing. Mary is amazing. Very welcoming
Dessert was amazing
Our waiter was the perfect combination of knowledgeable and humorous, and the food was outstanding!!
Great date night spot :) The mushroom pizza was INCREDIBLE!!!!
I love how well run and friendly and tasty it all is every time
Great but small, cute date spot. Fantastic food!
We went to Barbuzzo during Restaurant Week, which guaranteed a great meal for a bargain price. Limited selections on the Restaurant Week menu, but everything we ate was great.
