Just right pizza

Brick oven charred pizza inspired by Southern Italy. All types of imaginative combinations, and a very homey place. All pizzas are individual sized, and hand crafted to perfection.

This is not so much a review of the pizza than of the owner, Matt, who bakes the pizzas that his wife Melissa so skilfully creates. I will say that without a doubt that they make the best pizza on earth in their wood fired stone oven one at a time with love. On this Wednesday night my wife and... More

This is the third time I have dined here. It is a very small place with counter space for ~12 people inside. You can sit in the back on very tiny metal chairs and tables. My husband ordered the meat lovers pizza (Tre Carne) and loved it. I ordered the Bufalina with fresh mozzarella and anchovies. As usual the topping... More

This is by far an excellent brick oven pizza. Pizza's are a personal size, traditional and specialty types available...really delicious. A salad and cold drinks, beer. or wine available....BYOB is OK too. The husband wife team, who have extensively traveled Italy, provide a great dining experience. Seating is limited to 11+ so reservations are encouraged.

Matt and Melissa know their stuff and they showcase their ability each and every day they are open with their delicious pizzas. We just call in our order and eat it out and about Town but they have a cute little seating area inside that looks fun.

This is the true Neapolitan style, super thin crust, baked fast at high temperature pizza. The toppings are fresh, imaginative, and superb. In the winter, it's just a few seats at the counter, so it's tough. In the summer, the outdoor seating area is open, and that's the bomb. I have to say it's worth eating this pizza on-site, when...

I am a local resident and I have heard of this restaurant for some time. It seems that every time I tried to go it was a Sunday or a Monday. when they were closed. Well my friends it was worth the wait. The pizza had a dry thin crust with freshly prepared ingredients. It was not drenched with oil... More

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
