Lovely outdoor seating experience! The waiter was courteous and prompt, the outdoor seating was very nicely heated and the food was delicious. Reasonably priced as well!
Always a favorite spot in Philly. I am no longer located in PA, but I make it a point to come every time I’m back. The servers do a good job explaining the menu and pacing out the courses.
Service was not great. Our dinning experience was rushed and the staff seemed to want to get our table turned as quick a possible.
Absolutely amazing!!!! Best meal I’ve had in a long time. I had the bronzino and octopus, great blend of textures and flavor. Highly recommend.
It was terrific. Our waitress was wonderful attentive and sweet. The food is absolutely wonderful.
Brunch before theater.
Delicious meal and great service! Look forward to going again!
Great outdoor dining. Very comfortable. Good service.
The best pizza I have ever taste
Barbuzzo is always a good choice. Great food at good prices and excellent service. This place is very popular and always busy so a reservation is a must. Would recommend to anyone who likes great food at good prices with friendly and efficient service.
Food amazing. It’s great when you order correctly. Plenty of food and didn’t stuff ourselves. Had room for dessert. Martinis were small, not filled all the way and not worth the price., but delicious expresso martini. Will go back.
Food and service were excellent. It was the best meal we had during a weekend trip to Philadelphia.
Poor service for outside dining, which included food so cold we had to send it back for rewarming. Order of food was not in sequence, which was disappointing. So disappointing for an out-of-town guest to whom I had raved about the fun ambiance and good food in previous experiences.
We’re considering Barbuzzo as a potential rehearsal dinner venue so we obviously had to come try the food. We were blown away. Great service, great food. Will absolutely be back and will likely be hosting our pre-wedding celebration here in a few short months!!
Great ambiance. Smaller portions.
I've visited this restaurant the last three Saturdays in a row for brunch. Each time the food was consistently delicious!!! I keep going back for the Spanish steak & eggs and the Uovo pizza. I had the Uovo pizza and I can't get over how good it is. I asked our server Alex to let the chef know that I said, "Dame that food was good lol." I had Alex as my server two out of the three times I went and she is amazing!!! This is a place where you can do brunch right. I even got a Salted Caramel Budino for my birthday sooo delicious. The caramel was a little too sweet for me, but it was still amazing. I can't say that I tasted anything I didn't like. Great services, great food, I love it there. Do yourself a favor and go treat yourself at Barbuzzo!!
Food was delish, we had the short rib hash and the Farrow Salad, with side of olives and Queen Bee for drinks. I was looking forward to other dishes, My bad, did not realize only brunch menu at the time of our visit. I enjoy the ambiance of small place, open kitchen, rustic decor. Server was excellent. My only complaint, there were open tables but we were placed near the door (I had a resv) may as well have been sitting outside, it was cold. To be fair, we also didn’t ask to be moved either. Regardless very enjoyable place, look forward to going back.
Barbuzzo is solid. Great beet/kale salad and we loved the seasonal squash starter. Yum. Branzino is always a winner.
Food was great. Sat outside and the heat wasn’t working yet but it was still tolerable for being 45 degrees out. Our server was very nice but the waiting was crazy long. Either completely under staffed or we just got forgotten about outside.
1. That night the manager had an attitude as soon as we entered. I didn’t put my mask in fast enough.
2. The place is fine special, no! Fine yeah.
3. Not everyone eating there is looking for an experience. Some, like us, we’re looking for a nice meal since we are from out of town.
4. Pizza is ok, our pasta dishes were favorable, have to be honest. Serving size was, in my opinion, small for the price but ok I can live with it.
What I can’t live with is the staggered delivery of our food. I finished my pasta meal 6 minutes before my wife’s was delivered. Come on! The manager gives me some BS about they are a sharing restaurant or something. If that is the case put that on the menu. Also maybe I’m selfish and want to eat what I ordered. I understand this is a radical idea. Maybe my wife wants to eat what she ordered. What if I hate what she orders are we forced to share.
So the manger was certainly not apologetic but a bit defensive about the sharing thing and the late thing. Our waitress was very good and kind and offered to make an adjustment to the bill. I was grateful but did not request before you think I did.
So this sunk the whole night for me. Thanks Mr. Manager.
All of this is the experience I had and not some fabrication.
Our server Alex was amazing! She was very nice and attentive and gave great suggestions. All of the food was delicious! I didn't think I would eat all of it but once I tasted everything, I couldn't stop. I will definitely be returning very soon!
Really enjoyed dinner here with a friend. We had a reservation and sat in the outdoor sidewalk seating area. Our server was the perfect blend of attentive without hovering. Great cocktail recommended by the server, delicious appetizers, and the salad and the pasta were great. Everything was fresh and flavorful. The area is a little bit busy and loud, but we were sitting outside so that was within reason. No complaints!
Barbuzzo is an excellent restaurant with great food!
The food is awesome!!!!! Every single dish is good, and would definitely love to go back
Great tapa style dining experience so good
We go many times a year for special occasions to treating ourselves but it’s been different lately. The Arancini and meatballs were delicious as expected but the potatoes were over fried. We all selected the Gnocchi for our entree … the dinner plate arrived with 15 gnocchi. It was good but at $1 plus a gnocchi it was not what we had ever been served before. In fact we are such fans of the lighter than air gnocchi, that we had a picture of our last visit and a bowl that had considerably more gnocchi.
When we left my son mentioned it to the manager who informed us that it was “ family dining” meant to be shared. How do you share 15 gnocchi? We never considered Barbuzzo to be a tapas restaurant.
We’ve always loved Barbuzzo but I fear they are riding on the name- we won’t be back, Philly has too many great restaurants to enjoy.
Friendly staff, great food and great service! Wonderful pizza and tasty octopus!
We ate outside while it's still a little warm. Dinner was excellent as always. I was hoping for the short ribs but they've been replaced with another beef dish. The kale and beet salad was excellent, as was the octopus. I liked the squid ink pasta but it wasn't what I expected. Only the pasta is black, no inky sauce. My hubby had the meatballs and pizza with lots of meat. Wish we'd each gotten our own caramel budino but decided to share after eating so much. Great dinner and nice beer selection.
From the charcuterie and Queen Bee cocktail, to the meatballs and uova flatbread accompanied by a luscious Pinot noir, it was all delicious. And who can deny themselves a mouthwatering budino! Not I. Service was fabulous as always. Thank you everyone who makes Barbuzzo so great.
Did not receive good service from our server. No check ins until we finished our meals. Offered no apologies and contradicted my comments.
This was our first visit. Recommended by a family member. The pizza was great and the service was perfect. Will be back!
Excellent pre-theatre brunch and the whipped ricotta was divine!
Great service Interesting dishes. Good for sharing
We had been to Barbuzzo a few times before, however, it had been a couple of years. It was obvious they were feeling the strain of what recent times have imposed upon the restaurant industry. City mandates were strictly adhered to; the staff was very friendly and efficient under the circumstances. None of my comments should be construed as negative, just a sign of the times. Service was effective and cordial and, working in teams, everyone got the job done. Plates delivery took a bit longer than would have been expected but our server did a good job of checking in on us and taking care of the little details like keeping water glasses full. We enjoyed the specialty cocktails and offerings of wines by the glass. To start, we enjoyed the ample beet salad and the butternut squash arancini. For plates, we decided on the bronzino and gnocchi and both were delicious. We were heading to a show and were concerned about time so we skipped coffee and tea but one cannot go to Barbuzzo and not share a budino! Always a good experience here and we wish them the best as they navigate through these difficult times.
Delicious food as always!
Top to bottom, very good. Get the meatballs! Pizza was excellent as well, def worth visiting.
Small table ( for 2) slightly cramped. High energy, very noisy why predominantly young adult diners. Food was average but with a fair value. Service above average. Not the place to go for a quiet, ambient evening.
Delicious food. Good variety. Very good cocktails.
We really liked this spot!! The food was extraordinary!!!
The food and service was excellent! We went there to celebrate my birthday, and it was perfect.
