Situated opposite Narrabeen beach, Barbuto's has a nice layout. The staff are friendly and helpful and most importantly the food is fresh and delicious. We had snapper and barramundi with fennel salad and broccolini sides.

Thank you to all at Barbuto for giving us such a special evening last week 19th November. We dined with 2 small children and all were very happy to serve and chat to them and to us. Food always great, cocktails even better and Benjamin's...service was incredible. This is our Birthday go to place and we were not disappointed. Thank you to all. See you again soon.More

Very disappointing meal for the price they charge. I had the surf and turf. My sister and I paid $62 each for 3 overcooked prawns and a tough and chewy eye fillet steak. Extremely noisy venue which spoilt our couples evening. Pub meal for a...fine dining priceMore

We eat here 2 to 3 times a week. The Staff are awesome and the Food is outstanding. By far the best king prawns and rib eye I’ve had. 👍

It's not a pretentious menu but the food is well-prepared and the service is excellent. The wait staff went out of their way to provide exactly the affogato dessert I wanted (pro tip: amaretto) and their attention to detail was appreciated. Give it a shot.

The service was excellent - starting with a warm welcome from the maître d (I think her name was Lauren), she was very attentive and friendly throughout our night, as were the rest of the staff. The food was equally great - loved the spicy...chicken wings and the fillet steak cooked to perfection with pepper sauce. We’ll be back!More

Just make sure you get the rigatoni al Ragu! Up there with the best pasta dish I have ever had. The beef brisket was rich, the flavours intense and to top it off the pasta was cooked to perfection.

I'd always enjoyed eating at Barbuto's, but my experience last night will definitely be the last. In the first place, we'd ordered a bottle of wine - 10 minutes later we were told that this wine was not available and another was ordered. A further...10 minutes passed and then, after observing waitresses whispering about this, we were told this one also wasn't available. A third attempt was made - the bottle arrived just after the food! A very cursory apology was provided by the manager (Michael), but no offer of a complementary wine or token anything. No indeed, the bill arrived with two bottles detailed on it and we had to negotiate getting it fixed. I'd ordered grilled prawns. The price was high. The quality was really poor - I'm not sure if the prawns were not fresh, or the cooking wasn't good, but they were almost inedible. For the very high prices, and it's previously high standards, this was altogether a really disappointing experience.More

We have had some delivered meals from Barbuto during COVID and they’ve been great. Managed to keep the quality and tastiness of the food. It’ll be great to support them back in store soon! Highly recommend the steak, friend chicken and our fav Camembert cheese!
