We are visiting from New York and decide to eat at this restaurant that we chose through open table. We were seated quickly at a table all the way in the back corner of the restaurant .If we were any further back we would have been out the door. The way our table was situated we were very close to another table The hostess showed us to the table.and walked away .We had to pull the table out and I practically had to climb over the seat to get to my seat. The couple who had their backs to our table was so close to us the woman was flipping her hair and it was very unsanitary and rude. All and all I would not recommend this restaurant due to our experience.
Amazing experience! Highly recommend... food and wait staff was attentive
Excellent Carbonara and Chianti! Very noisy but great space for groups.
Dirty and average food
Outstanding food, great service, a bit on the pricey side. But this place is LOUD. We were a table of 4, and we were literally shouting at each other at the table and still could barely hear ourselves. It's a shame, because everything else was great. But we won't be back, because we couldn't hold any sort of conversation and left with our ears ringing. This place needs professional sound dampening.
The food was delicious. You can taste the flavors in each dish and appreciate the level of detail that goes into it. Atmosphere is a bit loud and tables are very close in proximity. The only dish we didn't care for too much was the tiramisu. Go with the deconstructed cannoli instead :)
Great experience at Barbusa! Suggested to me by someone so my best friend and I went there after a concert at Copley symphony Hall. I had the granchio (w/pieces of northern crab) pasta dish, and it was delicious! Tried my friend's squid ink with pieces of lobster truffle oil pasta dish and it was also superb! The lambchop lollipops we shared for appetizers were fantastic and perfectly cooked! The little bread thing you get on the house when you sit down is nothing to rave about, that's fairly mediocre. Both of our cocktails (negroni and aperol Spritz) and wines (an Italian red and a Chilean red) were very nice. The ambience was lovely, cool, and pleasant. Definitely worth going to! The food is what really makes it worth it; looking forward to going back to try more of what's on the menu to see if it's consistently fantastic across the board.
Wonderful lunch, great waiter and great food as usual!
Great food and service! We enjoyed a wonderful meal among friends. We had ravioli, antipasto and a chianti classico wine.
It always great food, service and ambience!!
Great service, outstanding food. Waiter gave great wine selection. Did have to wait until whole party was there to sit but was 10 minutes and then took 5 minutes to be seated once everyone was there.
Our server was great and made solid recommendations. The food was good, but honestly feel like it was a bit overhyped. Vast discrepancy in portion size across 4 different pasta dishes. Pasta was a bit undercooked. Cool atmosphere, great wine, would try it again but wouldn’t rush back.
Amazing Osso Buco
The pasta was good but the sauces are lacking in flavor. My bone marrow was over cooked and came out gritty. My girlfriends carbonara was decent but needed something to bring the sauce to life. Drink selection is great and the atmosphere is lively. Service was good too.
Everything was amazing! The BEST food! Service was excellent, even on a holiday. & the management is amazing. I love this place, for all occasions!
My wife and I had a great time and Rosana was amazing!
We had the grilled romaine salad, spicy shrimp appetizer (shrimp fuoco), bone marrow and sausage cavatelli and chocolate ganache cake for dessert. Everything was truly delicious! Cannot wait to go back.
Considering how many great restaurants are in Little Italy, I would not return here. My friend and I shared, and the food was just OK - our salmon was a bit overcooked and our mushroom/creamy pasta needed some zing - we added black pepper to it. The focaccia bread we got to start was yummy and so was the wine.
We had servers come by and try to take our plates at least 3 times before we were done eating, like they really wanted us out of there.
Everything was delicious. The service was excellent. 15/10 honestly.
Everyone was courteous and a quick and efficient service. Food was perfect!
Best restaurant in Little Italy! The food was great. Our server Michael was a true professional. I'd recommend this restaurant for almost any occasion. I'm definitely going back.
