We came here on a unusually warm Saturday night at 9 PM and the place was packed. Fortunately, we had reserved the large table IN the kitchen which enhanced our dining experience.Though a New Yorker, I had no idea where 775 Washington Street at the corner of Little West 12th Street was. The site was built as a Rolls-Royce Dealer's... More

Believe what you read - the food is terrific. The vaunted chicken is as fantastic as everyone says. The pasta was perfection - truly al dente and delicious. And the prices are so reasonable you can't complain. And yet - I have to. The noise is oppressive. The service was lackluster. Our waiter served two cocktails, but forgot our friends'... More

Loved it here for brunch. The house famous chicken is delicious... As is the steak salad. For dessert, the chocolate pudding. Perfection!

We have been to this restaurant a number of times and have never been disappointed. The menu is limited but the food is always excellent. If I had to make one improvement I would suggest a side dish to go along with the main entrée. The service is prompt and the servers are knowledgeable and friendly.

This is still a solid restaurant with very good food. For me it is about the chicken. It is hot, nicely cooked and delicious. No complaints about the pasta with shrimp, PEI mussels and cake. On the down side, the noise level can be very painful.

Stumbled on Barbuto walking in the village and glad we did. Open kitchen (with charming group table in the middle of it) ; industrial décor ; friendly service and delicious food. What more could you want!

This was recommended by a foodie friend in New York and their roast chicken is definitely a must but the portions are huge. The staff were lovely (we arrived way too early but they allowed us to sit at our table and enjoy a drink) but we never got any bread and olive oil which all other tables seemed to... More

Excellent food and experience for dinner this NYE. We had a group of seven and a friend made a reservation at the chef's table in the kitchen the day they started taking reservations for that night! None of us had ever been before but heard great things and they were all true. The tasting menu was great so we could... More

The only crummy thing about Barbuto is it's hard to get a reservation, so I'm not able to go there more frequently! On my most recent visit I had Brussels sprouts salad, scallops, and shared chocolate pudding and it really was THE PERFECT meal. The service is attentive, but casual, and the food is truly spectacular. I would rate Barbuto... More

I have been wanting to try Barbuto and just recently went with a few friends. Everything we ate was delicious! We shared the gnocchi as an appetizer and the chicken main course. Both were huge portions. I would definitely go back and possibly book one of the bigger tables for a special occassion. Try it!
