    Food is out of this world and the chefs are amazing to watch. They seem so quick and flippant with the prep and these miracles of cuisine somehow come out of it. Don't skip the pizzas.
  • Tara L.
    One of my favorite restaurants in Philly. Can't go wrong with any of the pizzas and pastas, MUST try the caramel budino for dessert - I haven't met anyone who's tried it and not loved it.

    Beef tartar is melt in your mouth delicious!

    One of the best meals I've had. The short rib pizza, arancini, and basil lemonade were fantastic. Also the pastas are fresh and made in house. And the budino cannot be missed

    Barbuzzo is one of my favorite date spots in the city. Prices are affordable and the food is fantastic. The zucchini starter and Pera pizza are amazing

    Service started attentive and prompt, but dropped off suddenly and sharply about 2/3 thru our meal. Shared about a dozen dishes, most of which were quite tasty.

    I will be coming back for the budino. Caramel pudding--topped with creme fraiche--with dark chocolate cookie-like crust at the bottom. Super-sweetness cut with salty, tart, and bitter.

    Restaurant week menu was well curated & portioned. Excellent food but space is over utilised and cramped. Homemade cheese is highly recommended as an appetiser & the tiramisu is excellent for dessert.

    The gnocchi is as good as the tips say. The right amount of truffle flavor without being too rich and the gnocchi is fluffy as air. Incredible!

    This place knows dessert! Before you order dinner, you should plan to leave room for the chocolate tasting plate and the insanely good Salted Caramel Budino.

    Hangar Steak. Solid! The meatballs; however, might be the most unique. More like Italian Sausage than a meatball. Delicious all around!

    Stumbled upon this place & it turned out to be so great! Shared the Fennel, Avocado, & Grapefruit salad; Whole Wheat Casserecce; Grilled Skirt Steak, everything was delish & it was a very cool vibe.

    One of my favorite places. The ambiance redeems barbuzzo from the limited space it has inside. The roasted brussel sprouts are delicious.

    The meatball is insane! Fusilli pasta is great and bigger than you think. For two people you're good with 4 items so you can save room for dessert. Split some quartinos so you can try a few wines.

    Can't get a table for dinner? Try lunch. We got there at 12:05 and were seated even though we didn't have a reservation. Can't make it the second it opens? Make a reservation.

    Don't bother trying to unknowingly sit down 3 minutes before 10:30 and trying to order the late night happy hour...they won't honer it. The famous dessert wasn't worth the runaround.
