Christine was awesome and so nice, even though I gave her a little bit of a hard time (in jest of course). She took care of us well after the kitchen closed and was fine with us switching tables. Had a good wine substitute option after my dates initial choice was out of stock that night.

Everything was delicious! We got the summer corn arancini to start; very pleasant surprise. For the main course we got the gnocchi and ragu which were both absolutely flavorful and delicious! Definitely recommend.

This was a date night for a us and despite everything going on with COVID-19 we had the best meal outside. There were plenty of tables that were all spaced out and the service was exceptional! The food was incredible and prices were affordable. Will definitely be back!

Great experience especially given the Covid outdoor dining only requirement. The food was excellent, the service attentive and we all felt safe. Too bad the City won’t just close 13th street to create a pedestrian zone for the restaurants.

Great pizza! Cheese plate had more condiments on it than cheese. Lots of people walking close to the tables on the sidewalk, so would prefer a table closer to the street.

We had a good experience. Cocktails were good as was the food. My only complaint was that we were squished at a table by the door which was uncomfortable for us and made getting our food awkward.

Tight seating, but overall atmosphere was great. Didn’t mind sharing a bit of convo with our neighbors. Food was like nothing I have ever had. Started with the cheese plate-moved to the octopus and scallop for our mains, and then finished with a whipped wonder of a dessert in a mason jar! Heaven paired with an espresso! The specialty cocktails were a home run ❤️

Not what I expected. Barbuzzo is such a hard restaurant to get a reservation to and I always thought it was because of how great the food was. After dining here, I now know that it’s because the restaurant is so tiny and they try to jam customers in like sardines. We were too close to the table next to us, it almost felt like we were all sitting at the same table. The waiter’s behind was so close to my face while he tried to maneuver around the tables- it was uncomfortable. The hostess was very rude and unwelcoming and she wasn’t at the host stand for the first five minutes of standing at the door. The food was subpar and not as expected from the menus description and quite frankly had no flavor.

We have been to the sister Spanish restaurant across the street and decided to try their Mediterranean restaurant. However, it was really a tapas restaurant with small and medium plates you are expected to share and they arrive in any order. Not what we were expecting.

Our dinners were delicious especially the kohlrabi Caesar salad.
We love Barbuzzo so it is difficult to criticize but the restaurant is way too dark. Please make it easier to read the menus and see what we are eating.

It was a great meal with a mixed age group. There were some slight service areas which could have been improved upon. The service started strong, but as the night when on the timing was off, and the server was less attentive.

Barbuzzo is my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia! Everything I have ever tried, even things I don’t think I’ll like, has been outstanding and I’ve never had a bad bite of food here. We ordered the sheep’s milk ricotta, Spanish Octopus, roasted mushroom arancini, pan seared gnocchi, and salted caramel budinos. Again everything was delicious, but the roasted mushroom arancinj was mind blowing! My ONLY complaint is that the Lardo pizza, easily the best thing I’ve ever eaten in my life, is no longer on the menu. If you’re looking for an amazing meal Barbuzzo is the place to go

The food and the service at Barbuzzo was excellent. We went on a busy Saturday night but were not rushed at all. The food was cooked to perfection, the waiter very attentive without being annoying. We will definitely go back and have already recommended Barbuzzo to someone.
