Cozy, friendly shoreline pizza restaurant with limited seating-A taste of Italy in Guilford.

the pizza is very good. It is probably the best in guilford. The chefs are ridiculously talented. And I say chefs because the quality they put into their pizzas requires a title more than just pizza man.it's a shame the place is so small and is not by any stretch convenient. but this is a relatively small issue in context...

Wood-fired pizza is what Bufalina's is all about. Fresh ingredients, Small and cozy bar seating, puts you right up to the action of creating the pizzas. Margherita is excellent, but there are a lot of unique combinations to go with their thin crust. Take-out available, too. BYOB. Limited outside seating has been added. Both owners have food service background and... More

As with many of my reviews I want to say that I rated Bufalina average only because tripadvisor doesn't have a "good" rating....it goes from average to very good.....which to me is a big swing. Bufalina makes some good pizza....not excellent pizza.....but good pizza. They do have some very good specialty pizzas, the ingredients are all fresh, and if anyone... More

Unique dining experience... This is the way a restaurant should function...simple setting, delightfully different pizza, and BYOB. Bar seating- pizza only, but eating at Bufalina is like becoming a member of the family. Everyone joins in as the talented staff of four prepares the pizza. Farm fresh, wood baked and amazingly tasteful. The menu changes seasonly and no one leaves... More

We ventured to this restaurant site because it was the #1 pizza place for a dear friend od mine. We do agree. Nice environment. Small with a nice, rustic outdoor patio in the back. The salad was enough for two. We had the best Margherita in CT.. Also BYOB is great. Excellent for a taste of Italy.

Lovely couple who does it right. Thin crispy crusts, made with loving attention. They studied how to do it right in Italy.

I grew up on and love New Haven Style pizza -it is hard to beat. Bufalinas thin crust, fresh cheeses, a great tomato sauce and creative toppings put it in a upscale catergory and nowa favorite also.

The NYTimes review did Bufalina justice in a review that captured the care, quality and commitment that owners Matt and Melissa shower on this gourmet, farm to table, pizza experience. My favorite is the fig and bacon pizza--wow. Add a great wine and you almost don't need to go to Tuscany for a superb pizza experience. This restaurant is so... More

The place is small but the favors are big. This is equal to the pizza we had in Naples , nice combos and reasonable prices. This is a nice way to treat yourself to excellent pizza.
