A former garage reinvented to a largely outdoor restaurant, Barbuto is very good. We had a group of six. Two of us had the pollo al forno which may have been the best chicken I've ever eaten in a retaurant.My wife and a friend had the gnocchi which they loved. Two others had the cod which they thoroughly enjoyed. It... More

And so I was invited to have a 4 course meal IN the restaurant's kitchen.. yes in the kitchen and I have to tell you that the food was among the best I've ever had. It was quite an experience to see the cooks busy preparing our meals. The kale salad was to die for, the chicken was crispy on... More

I hesitate to write this review because this is one of my favorite spots, is always crowded, and I really M not looking to increase the line to get in, but it's so good I feel obligated. The chicken is superb, the Ragu devine, and they do this bucatini in a pepper cream sauce to perfection. The fact that they... More

It is great to see the food network chefs making their dreams come true. This restaurant is a hit. Kale is the hot item on everyone's menu now, but do not miss the Kale salad here. One of the best I have had. The bruschetta was delish, as was the special pasta of the night, the pappadrelle.

I've been wanting to go to Barbuto for some time now since I always like hearing Jonathan Waxman talk about food. For this first visit we met a friend for a late lunch. The atmosphere was really inviting - with the garage doors rolled up it felt like a great outdoor room. We all enjoyed seeing the adorable neighborhood dogs... More

We have really enjoyed this restaurant in the past- just wasn't up to old standards today. The best things we ordered were the Bruschetta and the baked eggs. The pizza with eggs , steak salad ( steak was overly chewy and not tasty) and cauliflower salad were just all right. The cauliflower salad - I really wanted to love it,... More

This place is high energy and was packed the night we went. Despite being a tad loud, we loved it. Being a crowd of 9, we ordered almost everything on the menu. It was a smorgasbord of deliciousness! Lots of sharing went on. Our service was excellent...water glasses always full. If I had one teeny tiny negative, it was that... More

We split the cheese plate and I had the delicious chicken! Great atmosphere, reasonable prices, and everything was deliciously prepared. We also sat next to James Franco and near 24 star Cherry Jones-- celeb tested, normal citizen approved! :)

Great atmosphere. When it's nice outside, the restaurant is open (garage like doors slide up). Food is delicious - the chicken dish especially and their gnocchi is great.
