Felt very rushed. Food was good but would not draw us back. Last visit here was amazing
Pasta sauce was full of cheese and too much butter
Told waiter 2 times no response
We have been going here for years, and it has always been an awesome experience! Thank you PJ!
Great food and a hopping vibe. One favorite place in Little Italy. The staff are the best!
The food was AMAZING! But don't come here expecting to be able to talk to the other people in your party. Crazy loud in there!
My husband and I had a nice evening at Barbusa. Wine and food were great. Service was efficient enough and our server was attentive and kind.
Amazing homemade pastas & garlic bread!!! We went twice during our time in San Diego because it was so good!
Great food. Good service. But the restaurant was very loud, so difficult to have conversations.
Loved Vince. He’s the best ever. Customer service excellent from the girls checking us in to leaving. Love your place and the energy. Food excellent..choices by Vince and they were great. See you soon!!!
First time there. Expected little more but we were disappointed. Portions are OK, taste was OK, prices are higher (like everything for no reason in little Italy) and drinks really expensive.
I am not sure if we go back for sometime or never.
Was a fine dinner
Food is amazing! We stopped in on Veterans day. Shared a pizza salad and a bottle of rose. Service was excellent! We will be back!
Amazing food! Almost all the dishes have their own specialty: all have a bit sweetness in them, which I really like and definitely contributes to the overall flavor! Best place I’ve been in little Italy so far!! Great service and really cute and modern decor!
Great food! Fun, loud atmosphere! Good times.
Best fancy Italian food I have ever had calamari was the best I have ever had different yet perfect
Great service, good selection of appetizers and entrees.
Perfection in EVERY aspect!
I was in San Diego for a professional conference last week and somehow chose Barbusa for my last night dinner there. It not only did not disappoint, but was far better than I could have ever expected. The appetizers and cocktail were spot on and delivered in perfect order, neither too soon nor too late. The staff were fantastically professional and personable and welcoming. The salad and entree were simply the best, the wine was one of the best I've ever had, and the after dinner espresso was perfect. I loved everything about it. Thanks to the folks at Barbusa!
We love this place! No wait when we arrived but we had RSVP, so it’s all good! The happy hour menu was amazing! We tried almost everything on the menu! The prices are reasonable and food and service was great!
Great martinis. Met friends for dinner, had a great time! Thanks.
Great service, good food and presentation.
Was very loud and hard to hear from across the table.
Ara was our waiter and he made the entire experience exceptional. This is our 2nd time to the restaurant and the food was spectacular! We will return!
Food was truly outstanding. Server was friendly, and recommended a mid-price wine that really went well with our orders. We were seated on time even though the place was packed, and the pace that they brought out the food was just about right. This was probably the best restaurant meal I've had in the last 2-3 years and I consider my palate to be pretty sophisticated.
Great! Will be back.
The food was excellent and good value. Service was good but we felt rushed to leave and the waiter suggested that we got dessert down the street! Extremely loud and hard to carry on a conversation.
Great food! Great atmosphere! Great service!! I would definitely come back..often!!
Birthday dinner. Was incredible but quite loud
Food was ok but didn’t meet the expectations. Service could have been better. Took 15 minutes after our reservation time to seat us and another 15 minutes before we were served our first drink. Too many other options in the area to go back again.
It was good, but I was expected more based on prior reviews. I will probably keep searching for a better Italian place in little Italy.
Wedding anniversary dinner...waiter was SO friendly and anticipated our needs before we even had to ask. Also, music playlist was on point!!
Greeted by two great hostesses - found our reservation quickly and accommodated us for a quiet table / hike made pasta and their cauliflower pizza was the BEST we have ever had -Chi our waiter had fantastic energy and attentiveness and will high to recommend and go again ! Great job
Good was not great , tasted sort of bland I had to put lots of salt on it for it to have some flavor . I will give it a second try
We had a big party and went right when the restaurant opened. The servers were kind and incredibly accommodating and we had the restaurant to ourselves for the first hour! Food was delicious and my friend we were celebrating was so happy. Great experience!
Service is absolutely amazing! Great food and drinks.
Good food. Nice for everyday dining
service was topnotch. Was a little loud. food excellant however the Bolognese seemed more of a meat sauce opposed to a true Bolognese... but very good. I would suggest to use a pasta that adheres to the sauce.
Overall wonderful. I will be back!
Would definitely go back but ask for a table in front or back. It is extremely loud and you can’t hear your dinner companions.
The food is very average
Loud wide open space.
