While looking up good restaurants in Philly, Barbuzzo came up multiple times, which necessitated a trip there. As it happens to be Restaurant Week, my sister and I decided to try Barbuzzo’s Restaurant Week menu, which certainly did not disappoint. The restaurant had a great vibe to it, and service staff were great. The Salted Caramel Budino was exceptional!

Recently celebrated my birthday with dinner at Barbuzzo and absolutely loved it! We were in town for the night and managed to get a reservation for a Saturday evening. We had the pan seared brussel sprouts, maiale pizza, meatballs, and the budino. Everything was absolutely delicious. We were stuffed but I would have loved to have ordered more! The restaurant is in a great location in City Center and convenient to lots of nearby bars. I would 10/10 recommend.

After trying unsuccessfully to get a reservation multiple times, we were really looking forward to our dinner. Sadly, it failed to meet expectations. First, it hit on three pet peeves: sitting on your winter coat, needing to use a phone to read the menu because it's so dark, and the tables so close together your server can't get between them. It was similar to being jammed in an airplane. I was relieved we had the seats against the wall and not on the aisle. The cheese board comes with a written description, which is a waste because it can't be seen.

The service was perfectly pleasant and attentive.

The food was disappointing in that nothing was especially memorable. The ricotta and grilled bread appetizer was the highlight. A side of Brussels sprouts was good. We found our two pastas underwhelming. The flavors of the soppresini didn't meld. The primary flavor was pancetta, which was delicious, but the dish as described should have had more sage and squash. Both pastas were a little too al dente for our taste, and neither was particularly hot, despite coming out of the kitchen at separate times.

Pro: Great Aesthetic
Con: FOOD WAS BLAND and portions were SMALL, SERVICE AUCKED - server clearly did not care that we were not satisfied with our food and did nothing to try to make us happy. Cheese board WAS EXTREMELY small and the collection of FOUR TINY pieces of cheese was unimpressive. Salad was too salty. Pizza was barely crisp and bland. Squash pasta had uncooked squash and barely any sauce. Once again a bland dish. Pork Ragu pasta - bland. Have lived in the city for years and this is the first time I’ve had a bad restaurant experience since i always do my research and look at the menu and ratings first. Disappointed especially since it had great reviews. Avoid and walk next door - 30 better restaurants within a block
