It was a great meal ane evening. My only issue was during the course of making reservations I had left 2 messages trying to get clarity on Covid restriction and never got a call or anyone to answer the phone. which was frustrating. but food and staff were excellent.

We have been going to Barbuzzo for years. We are eating outside so until there is a vaccine, we will continue to eat outside.

Barbuzzo has the best Gnocchi and Arancini. The shaved Brussels salad is phenomenal as well. Paired with a glass of Sangria, that’s match made in heaven.

Such a smart brunch menu. And the wine selection as always is great but a little pricey per glass

Needed a decent place that had indoor dining available for a date - was very pleased with the service and food here! Been here a few times before COVID and glad to know it's still a great place to eat.

Highly recommend the Uovo pizza and Whipped Ricotta

Was a great experience and we were sitting outside due to COVID. Thus, the lower mark on ambiance. Food was exceptional as always. So glad I was able to dine outside during COVID and enjoy one of my favs.

The outdoor seating was perfect. We really enjoyed their first brunch weekend. Brian, the manager was very accommodating. This is not our first time there and it will not be our last. Favorite sangria in the city.

It was Nov 7th, when PA went for Biden. Great party atmosphere yet safe and distanced outdoor dining. Will go back for sure.

Have had reservations at Barbuzzo several times and never made it for different reasons, last was outside reservations and it was 40 that night. Tried again for a week later, great night, perhaps last of the season. Just 3 of us for dinner, had drinks and an entre each. I had the hanger steak with a glass of cab, friend had the pasta and wine, another pizza and beer. Everyone enjoyed their meals and our server was great. Two of us had Budino and cappuccino which was a great way to end a nice night out.

My boyfriend and I went for happy hour on a Friday. It's a pretty loud street and there were helicopters above which made it hard to hear but was at no fault of the restaurant. Otherwise, the ambiance was very nice outside. We ordered a couple of different appetizers, all of which were very good. The best part was the fig pizza with their secret white sauce, which I highly recommend!

We were seated outside and it was 50 degrees out and there was no heat lamp on sight. We were so cold. there server was rushing us to order, he barely stayed when we asked questions and wasn't really paying attention to our questions. The pizza was ok but cold so quickly. The hanger steak tasted like a citrus soup...The pork pasta was very salty. We left running.

This is a legacy restaurant that has been on my radar for 10 years and it completely lives up to their reputation as good for you and toothsome food and cocktails. The Philly Negroni is a must have.

I had the whipped ricotta as an appetizer, it was so delicious and went so well with the Pino Noir. The Branzino was served with a vegetable dish like a succotash, paired very well together and cooked to perfection.

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 :)
