Amid row after row of restaurants, several of which appear to be sister restaurants, is this fun place. Small and packed to the gills, the food was exciting. Service was a bit spotty. Seasoning was hit or miss, one dish needing salt and the other having a bit too much. But overall the meal was interesting and tasty! And the... More

You've gotta love the name, but what you'll really love is the food! On a recent business trip to Philly a foodie friend in town recommended this place. He said we wouldn't be disappointed and in fact we were wowed! Our well tattooed waitress was outstanding, attentive, fun, knowledgeable, and she helped us make great selections. The food is more...

So my husband and I decided to try Barbuzzo after a 6:30 show at the Suzanne Roberts Theater. Even though it was a Tuesday night, I called ahead to make a reservation and they said they could accommodate us at 8:30, which they did immediately when we walked in. the restaurant was crowded on a Tuesday night because it is...

On a friend's recommendation, we had dinner at Barbuzzo restaurant, and it was a tasty one. We had five dishes for two people, which was about the right number. Sharing is encouraged. We particularly liked the roast plum bruschetta, the Brussels sprout salad, the funghi pizza, and the grilled octopus. We also had the flavorful signature dessert, a salted caramel... More

Went with a few friends for dinner and was pleasantly surprised by this unassuming restaurant. Because we like to order multiple things and share, got to try multiple yummy things. We started with the the beet salad with kale. It was very savory - beware that the kale was extra heavily seasoned with garlic and anchovy - almost Caesar like... More

In town for a quick trip, we had sought recommendations from friends. This place topped their lists... Sadly, we were in for a huge disappointment. Seated at the "chef's table," (catch-phrase for the 90-degree counter inches from the cooking), we had a show to catch or we would have waited for a regular table...it was so hot sitting here I...

We went for an informal dinner to Barbuzzo and the food was excellent, however the service was very slow- By the time that two of us had finished the entrees for the rest of us were still waiting. The burrata with prosciutto and the pumpkin pizza were really tasty and to top if off we had the budino with salted... More

Barbuzzo is wonderful. Despite a bustling crowd and close tables, it still felt cozy and romantic (maybe because we were in the very back and only sat closely to one other quiet table) with its very dark interior and lighted candles. If you want pizza and eat meat, try the Beastia. The best thing we had was the butternut squash... More

Visiting from out of town, we decided on Barbuzzo because it looked casual and had a good variety of dishes. As others have noted, it is noisy, very dark and the tables are way to close together. We sat next to (about six inches away) from a young couple. They were talking so loud we could hardly carry on a... More

I sat at the chef's bar and saw the action up close and personal. The line chefs have very little wiggle room and worked as a well rehearsed team. The interior is very narrow and high. As a resuly, it is so noisy that it is hard to have a conversation and very dark. In order to read the menu... More
