You can never go wrong at Barbuzzo, great lunch spot, food is always on point and delicious. Usually go once a month and each time I try something different on the menu. Now the problem is everything sooooo good it makes it tough to decide what to choose.

Food was very good, comes in small plates. We shared three plates between two of us and we were quite full.
Some of the dishes were a bit salty, so you may want to ask to have them prepared without salt then add to your own tastes.

The food was good, but nothing spectacular. Not sure I’d visit again.

We ate at Barbuzzo before a show in the city on a Saturday night. The seating is a bit tight, but once we were settled, we were all very comfortable for the duration of our meal. Our party of five tried many things and really everything was excellent. Particular standouts were the short ribs, the pastas, the brussel sprouts and the ricotta appetizer. While everything was great, the highlight was absolutely the dessert. The salted caramel budino is worth having, even if you just drop in for only that. Excellent experience, highly recommend!

We had a lovely meal at Barbuzzo. The food was outstanding. We particularly liked the gnocchi and the pizza with pear and arugula. The server gave us excellent advice about how much to order, so we left happy and full but not absolutely stuffed. There was not a bad dish among the 4 that we ordered. We plan to go back!

Fantastic spot in Center City for lunch. Creative menu with lots of choices, and everything we had was outstanding. Fresh ingredients expertly prepared and plated, and a surprisingly well-curated beer list. Will definitely be back!

Food not up to the level it use to be. Pasta was so salty we couldn’t eat it. Felt very rushed by our server after dinner while we ordered another glass of wine.
Thus, being very popular does not mean a good experience. Plenty of other restaurants in the city to try.

Fiancé swore by this restaurant, so had high expectations. It’s absolutely for special occasions, not an every day place. The layout and seating is questionable; not much real estate to navigate; definitely not a place you can “get comfortable”. Overall, solid service, good menu, and a must eat on 13th.
