Love Bufad. Service is usually feast or famine. Pizza is delicious and different. Husband and I love this neighborhood spot & love it even more because it's BYO. Only thing I would change is that sometimes the ingredients aren't spread out proportionately on the pizza, for example, we ordered the brussel sprout pizza & some slices had very large amounts of brussel sprouts and some had absolutely no brussel sprouts. This has happened multiple times we've been there, but it's still a great spot. Super cozy in the winter with a bottle of wine!

Excellent corner pizza eater. Authentic Italian oven style pizza. Service was friendly and efficient. It is BYOB ONLY though! If you forget you can grab a drink at their sister bar next door and bring back.

The only complaint I have is that the tables are extremely close together. It's a small space, so I understand that they're trying to make the most of it... But we've had nights where we were basically on a blind-double-date with another couple because our tables are basically on top of each other. But it hasn't kept us from coming back again and again... Outside of that, the food is fantastic and the prices are great! And it's a BYOB, so be sure to come prepared.

Food was fantastic! Menu is ‘hipster’ enough to be fresh and interesting, but down to earth enough that anyone can find something they’ll love! Fast, friendly service.

Ordered three pizzas (clam, prosciutto, margarita) for our family of four and it was JUST right. We grabbed beer to go around the corner at Love City Brewing and it was a perfect dining experience.

I think this restaurant is great place for specialty pizza. I had the claim pizza and I was everything I wanted and expected . So delicious! It wasn’t heavy at all and was just perfect . I would highly recommend this place to other people.

I was with a group of three. We split an appetizer, a pizza, and a dessert, and thought that was the perfect amount of food. Our menu options were fairly limited by dietary restrictions in our group, but the server was very attentive and helped us figure out which options would work for us. Everything was delicious, and I will definitely be going back to try some of the other items on this season's menu.

Food was delicious, both pizzas very yummy. The only complaint is it is a little crowded and small, and it can feel like the servers rush you to leave so they can sit more people. Still, will definitely return.

Went to Bufad pre-show at the Union Transfer. We had a reservation which was not a necessity but a good idea before a show I think. The wood fired oven made everything taste great. We shared a roasted beet salad which is usually not one of my favorites, but now my mind has been changed. It was excellent. Also shared and just as tasty were the Marguerita and the Mushroom/smoked mozzarella pizzas. Unfortunately no room for dessert.
The service was efficient, friendly , and very helpful. Everyone that we encountered was happy to work there and proud of their restaurant, and their enthusiasm was infectious! Thanks Bufad!!!

For our money, there is no better pizza in Philadelphia! Each time we dine at Bufad we are impressed and wonder why we do not eat there more frequently. And there's more to Bufad than just great pizza -- the salads, the chicken wings, the meatballs, etc., are all terrific. Highly recommended.

You could tell I enjoyed my food at Bufad as there was nothing left on my plate. I came in not too hungry thinking I would have a few bites of pizza and ate the whole thing! Great interesting pizzas and a surprisingly good dessert selection. Loved that it was BYOB. My one complaint is that it is a small space and my friend and I felt like we were sitting on top of the couple next to us.

My friend and I were promptly seated for our 6pm reservation on a Friday. The restaurant started to get busy soon after so I recommend a reservation. All the staff was excellent and the food was amazing. We shared the baby green salad, calamari, and the pizza with the prosciutto on it(sorry, I forgot the name). It was all delicious! We devoured it all! I'm upset that we didn't have room for dessert. The dessert menu looks great. There's plenty of street parking in the area. The place is BYOB. If you forget to bring drinks, the Prohibition Tap Room is around the corner. They'll sell you beer to go :) Enjoy! I know I'll be back.
