8:15 res on a Friday. Felt rushed the whole time. Staff coming asking if they could take plates away way too often. Ordered dessert and they came by and took my spoon away before I could eat it. Food I got to eat was delicious.
I’ve been to Barbuzzo many, many times since it opened 9 years ago. I almost always get the truffle pizza with the runny egg on it. This time we ordered 2 pizzas for the table and both were somewhat undercooked. Which is a bit of a problem for a pie that has an egg on it. When we mentioned it to a server he said this was how it was supposed to be, but after having eaten a million of these pies I know otherwise. I will still go back, and hope that was a fluke.
Food reviews were over rated. Portions small but tasty overall but a few dishes disappointed
We had an amazing night-before-college-graduation dinner. The gnocchi and stuffed meatballs were amazing! We enjoyed all of the food we had actually..
I would recommend darkening the font on the food menu so that it matches the drink menu- and is easier to see the descriptions. In the evening the upstairs was very dim, with only candlelight, and we had to use cell phones to read the very small and light font on the food menu.
Everything was top notch and amazing as always!! Many Thanks! This neighborhood wouldn’t be the same without you.
Food is always amazing
Never disappoints! Have been dozens of times and it is always good.
Food was amazing!
The food and drinks were amazing. But this was the first time in my life the fire alarm has ever gone off in a restaurant so that kinda broke up the meal into parts and the waiters seemed a little rattled after we went back to being seated. Would definitely go back though, think it was just an unfortunate, rare event.
Food was delicious, but the service was so rushed. Just felt like they couldn't wait to get us out... we were served 3 out of 5 dishes within the first 20 minutes. Great if you're super hungry but for a fairly expensive spot, it was kind of a bummer to feel rushed through and barely have a chance to enjoy each dish as it came out. Also seemed like two servers were competing over our table (not sure if one was training the other, which would have been totally fine and normal, but they were acting super sketchy about it).
Barbuzzo is a solid choice is you want a light dinner at a reasonable price and the food overall is pretty good. Not the best in Philadelphia but it is tasty for sure. The menu is meant for sharing and the portions reflect that. Service was excellent. I would say Barbuzzo is the perfect spot for a casual light dinner or apps on a Wednesday night.
My only negative comment. The Kale salad which advertised goat cheese on the menu, had literally no goat cheese whatsoever.
Gnocchi was good, but the pancetta was kind of blah with the dish.
Riccota was good. But how can you mess up cheese????
Great cocktails and appetizers.
A great outdoor dining experience. Delicious food with good happy hour appetizers and excellent service. Also fun to sit outside in the booth with glass partitions so we could see all of the people walking and eating around us. You couldn't really hear the conversations at the adjacent tables so it was a comfortable area where we could talk but still feel a part of the atmosphere. The focaccia appetizer with feta and roasted tomatoes and olives had incredible flavor and the asparago pizza was also amazing. The salted caramel budino dessert was so smooth and decadent--a great way to end the meal. I would absolutely return and eat it all again!
From appetizers to dessert, everything was excellent! Although we loved everything (Basil Lemonade, Barbuzzo Old Fashion, funghi pizza, squid ink pasta w/seafood, Casarecce, bread pudding, chocolate mousse), in particular, the grilled octopus and branzino were out of this world! We've been meaning to dine here for years and are so glad we finally made it!
The caramel budinos! Heavenly
The food was delicious! The heaters were not working outside. They kept telling us they were resetting them. So, we froze through dinner. As we were finishing, they offered for us to sit inside. The worst part of the night was watching the server move a heater. I was shocked and asked where he found it. He said he should have offered us a heater. Brrrr....yes, that would have been nice! To top it off, they charged for extra pita. They offered us nothing for our very expensive dinner in the cold.
The heater for the outside seating isn’t very effective and unfortunately it was very cold that night. But the food, as always, did not disappoint. Everything we had to eat was spectacular!
The food and server were fairly good, but that didn’t make up for the rude hostess and horrible table. Never again.
I was in town for business and wanted to try a new restauraunt. Barbuzzo was excellent! Their food was creative and delicious! Everything I tried had excellent flavor and exceeded expectations. We got an upstairs table by the window. The server was great. The pricing was super-reasonable. I have definitely paid way more for food that wasn't as good. Would definitely recommend, and go back again.
One of my favorite restaurants in Philly. Never fails to be delicious!
Food is always phenomenal. I’ve been going here for years. It was a fast favorite. The past two times, something unfortunate has happened with my food and neither time have I been offered to have anything else made for me or have anything taken off the check. I just feel like I might be over Barbuzzo at this point.
First time dining since COVID was disappointing. The server was aloof and unresponsive, food was given as a free flowing kitchen, which is not typical and we were not made aware that this would be the case. There was a backup with the pizza oven and the table ate their meals before i received my pizza. Once the pizza was delivered, it was charred on the outside and unbaked in the center.
I had my wedding reception at barbuzzo in 2017 and looked forward to coming back, boy was I disappointed.
Food was great, service was great and loved the environment. Everything was safe and spacious
Mouse in dining room 😬
The restaurant offers good food at generally good prices. Although they say it's small plates, we had an appetizer and two more plates and we were fine. With the understanding that the food is supposed to be shared, it was still a little off-putting that the food listed under appetizers came at the same time than one of the plates under main dishes, and then the third one many minutes later. Not a deal breaker, though. Excellent service and good wine.
Food was very good and reasonable price. Menu was limited. Old Fashion was weak for price. Server was excellent. Weird we were seated upstairs and had to go outside to get to next level. Nice space though.
Food was great, glad they've reopened successfully.
Great spot for a date night!
Staff was very friendly. Food was inventive, cocktails inventive and everyone delicious.
Sat outside and had a great experiene. Th drinks and food were great and our server was fantastic and sweet!
Awesome restaurant with the best combination of flavors on a plate you would never thought of to put together, but it’s perfect! Got the short rib off the brunch menu and would definitely get it again! Also got the funghi pizza as an appetizer and it was perfect!
Everything was delicious, and service was on point. Loved it.
Our server was fantastic! He gave some amazing suggestions.
Food was good. Service was a little slow. We would have preferred to be asked our seating preference (I walked up a long flight of stairs 6+ months pregnant). I would have gladly sat outside. Food was very tasty. Whipped dips, whipped ricotta. Gnocchi very good but a little salty. Bronzino very good.
It was great!
Wish there were more vegetarian options. But delicious and wonderful service!
Server had weird energy like he wanted to go home which I get it’s just like hide it better. Cocktails overpriced but food was decent and fair for price. Not wildly crazy about this place it was solid but I wouldn’t necessarily choose to go back
The food and service was great! We were outside but in a heated cabana type thing so great privacy and kept noise to a minimum.
Great meal but not the perfection I remember. Burrata and foccacia still brilliant and the salted Carmel budino impossible to not like, literally impossible. But the pizza and gnocchi were not as great. Pizza was bland and gnocchi was salty and oily. Only 4 beers and all super Hoppy. Still a good meal but not the world class joint I remember from 5 years ago.
