The food quality is great with a low wait time. Though dining is outdoors, the noise level was tolerable and the vibes immaculate. Service was lovely as well :)

Our waiter was so sweet and funny and I really appreciate them accommodating us and our friends at such short notice. Thank you!

We love barbuzzo and will continue to go here post pandemic but if you are cautious during Covid this is not the place to be. The restaurant itself does a good job of spacing tables but the city of Philadelphia should be ashamed of themselves. 13th street is super crowded. It’s basically an outdoor bar. No one is wearing masks. If 13th street can look like that the Philadelphia public schools should be open. I’m far from a covid crazy person but it was a little much even for me.

Wonderful food and service! Even in the middle of a pandemic, they managed to give outstanding service. We sat outside under heat lamps and the whole experience of eating on the street, with the hubbub oh people walking by, made our time their feel festive!

I was really excited to dine at Barbuzzo with my friends. We got seated outside - it rained unexpectedly, and the waiter never offered to move us under an umbrella or anything.. we just took matters into our own hands. We ordered the pouch drinks and there were no ice cubes in them (?) and weren't filled nearly enough to the top, but they still tasted great. Food came out in random order, not all together or even close together - kind of annoying but overall, really nice place!

Went during restaurant week in philly. The Barbuzzo meatballs are to die for, best item on the menu. Was very busy but was able to get a seat due to having a reservation. Make sure you a reservation.

Outdoor dining went fairly smoothly for the final day of restaurant week. We had to wait a little extra to get our reserved table due to the previous customers lingering in their seats - no fault of the restaurant. The first course came out quickly (with mouthwatering arancini!!) but there was a long wait for our branzino. The branzino was tasty with fresh, seasonal ingredients but next time I'm just going to go back for their thin crust pizza and skip the three-course dinner. Their pizza is the best I've found downtown!

The food was OK but nothing to write home about. The edges of the pasta was dried-up and crunchy. It is as if it sat too long under a hot lamp. The bread which accompanied the ricotta appetizer was burned not toasted and the tiramisu was tasteless and uninspiring. The service was too fast and we did not get to enjoy a relatively leisurely dinner. We were in and out in about 45 minutes. Definitely uninspiring place.
