    My grandma and I visited for my birthday. The food was amazing and the staff were all great. I had requested wheelchair accessible seating in the reservation notes, and they were able to accommodate and find a place to park her mobility scooter. However, I would not say this restaurant is wheelchair accessible. To get to the bathroom my grandma had to navigate through the very narrow aisle and we basically had to ask everyone at the bar to get out of their seat and push it in so she could pass. We loved the food and service, but I probably would not go back with her and would not recommend to other wheelchair users unless they change their layout.

    Service was poor. I asked if I could add grilled shrimp to my salad but was told couldn’t be done because computer had no way of adding it. They have a dish with grilled shrimp so they should have been able to do that. Wouldn’t go back.

    I love this place and have been a fan since opening. I have to say the menu seemed to be scaled down from previous dining and understandable since Covid. What they do is great but miss the kale caesar ……. I will go back for sure

    Haven’t been to barbuzzo in a while and it was just as good as I remembered. Service was very friendly and efficient. Food was great. Loves the Caesar salad and the pizza. Pork chop was great as well. Delicious and unique pasta. Budino is always the best.

    Very cool aesthetic vibes, server was quick and super friendly. Food was presentable, but pretty small portions & pasta was undercooked, almost dry like it had been cooked a left to sit out with no oil/butter. A failed Al dente. Flavor was decent but not something to die for. Pecorino was barely existent.

    Love the food but the tiny two top was just inches from the next table and the noise level was so high you couldn’t converse nor could you have a private conversation with such close fellow diners. On top of that the server almost hit me with his elbow multiple times as he tended the next table and once I had his butt on my face Its a good place for food but ambience and comfort needs work.

    Got lucky - it turns out that the Open Table website allowing for "outside"seating when making a reservation is WRONG. I made a reservation indicating outside seating when I arrived I was informed that Barbuzzo does not take reservations for eating outside which they handle on a first come first serve basis. I got lucky and waited only a few minutes for a table for 4 outside. Please fix the reservation on your website. Food was fabulous, service was outstanding and we had a fantastic time - eating outside.

    I had a stellar meal at Barbuzzo, guided by my charming and knowledgeable server Aaron (shout out, Aaron!). I started with the beet and goat cheese salad, which had lively flavors and textures. Then the grilled octopus, seriously brilliant with huge depth of flavor. The Budino for dessert. And a superb Grenache Rose. Each dish was familiar enough to be comforting, but each had wonderful surprise layers. Excellent value. I WILL be back soon!

    We arrived for our 6:45 booking on time and waited 30 minutes to be seated because the group ahead of us didn’t wish to relinquish the table. The manager was totally indifferent, basically saying — we won’t ask them to leave and we don’t have a bar where we can offer you a drink - so you can wait on the sidewalk. We have no idea how long they will choose to keep the table. When we were finally seated, I expected the manager to at least offer us a drink or dessert on the house, but nothing was forthcoming. The food was lovely as always but the restaurant was crammed and loud. I always eat here when I am in Philly but don’t think I need to visit or recommend again.

    Food is excellent with a nicely varied menu; service was great despite how busy the restaurant was a peak dinner hour during Center City Sips. I wasn't too hyped about the noise level, feeling I couldn't always hear our table conversation, but food more than made up for it.

    Wonderful food and service! Barbuzzo is on our MUST list for every visit to Philadelphia. The delicious budino pudding is the stuff of dreams - food of the gods! The only drawback to the restaurant is that it is very loud. Some acoustic modification would be appreciated.

    Quick (because we wanted to be), smooth, friendly service; simply flavorful food, well prepared and just inventive enough. Italy-meets-Spain vibe. Pizza for the kids, pasta for the parents, good selection of mains and salads, too. Energetic vibe overall — boisterous friend groups and fashionable dates — but server was just as attentive to a family meal.

    Food was fantastic. Excellent robust flavors, nice grill on the branzino, delicately tossed homemade pasta, and fantastic texture on the giant meatballs. Loved every dish. Sauces were amazing.
