There were lots of folks in this restaurant on the Friday of Memorial Day Weekend, but there were one or two tables free and one could also eat outside (though it was in the high 80's.) They have soft drinks and one can BYOB. The...More

My son and daughter in law had been wanting to try this place, so on a cold rainy Sunday evening we did. We were surprised when asked if we had reservations, but were found a table anyway. Excellent hand crafted pizzas in some unusual combinations....More

If you are catching a show at Union Transfer in Philly, Bufad is a great option for tasty Italian in a cozy, rustic setting. The Piccante pizza was excellent - thin, crispy, perfectly cooked - and the pickled long hots and chili oil definitely gave...More

This place is fantastic. I'm a real pizza snob, and the majority of offerings in Philadelphia don't cut it for me. The roman slices here are spectacularly delicious... love the rosa, margherita, and spicy vegetable. We've been here many times since Bufad opened and have...More
