    I love the atmosphere but i was totally shocked it says it is middle eastern cousin but most of the dishes has a pork! I had salted caramel desert and was yummy 👌🏻

    The pasta is so fresh. And the brown butter and sage is fantastic.

    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

    Incredible culinary experience! Chef sent us a few apps to try - we loved it! Definitely sample the meatballs and the sheep's cheese! The octopus salad and Bronzino were my favorite!

    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

    Tonnarelli nero is amazing! Mussels are great but nothing too special (awesome sauce though)

    We came here for a private event and the food was phenomenal! Beautiful decor, friendly staff. What more could you want? Definitely order the risotto balls and the salted caramel dessert!

    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.

    Didn't get to try their bone marrow, but their meatballs are delicious and the salted caramel pudding is amazing

    The gnocchi and budino really are excellent. Also the chianti soaked plums was a really light and fresh dessert

    Salted caramel pudding is indeed amazing. Pretty much everything else is really good too.

    This is a really delicious, cozy spot for a date or other special occasion. It's also a great place to take your Jewish mom who doesn't believe anything in Philly could POSSIBLY compare to New York.

    Yes yes yes to the budino. Other entrees didn't impress me all that much.

    Had the burrata, caserrece and the budino during restaurant week. Outstanding!!!!

    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.

    Going to say it: the budino is overrated but the plate of Mediterranean antipasti and the ricotta make a perfect lunch!

    We liked the salted caramel budino so much, we ordered two of them (one to stay, one to go).

    The pan seared gnocchi is excellent, but the star is the salted caramel Budino. Heavenly!

    Don't miss the Burrata with Roasted Carrots, Uovo Pizza, or the Salted Caramel Budino (rated best dessert in Philly)!

    Another great chance to eat Chef/Owner Marcie Turney's mouthwatering dishes - this time with flavors from the Mediterranean – and one of the few spots in Philly open late night.

    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.

    If anything, go to have the boudino (salted caramel dessert)!!
