The food was delicious! Service was quick and friendly. It is a very small restaurant, so not good for groups, but great for a date or girls night. BYOB is always a plus in my book! Will definitely be back.

The service was haphazard at best, the noise was ear-splitting, the food only so-so. Why would we return or ever recommend this restaurant to anyone?

Burrata was a pleasant experience. I love Burrata cheese so I have always been trying to dine at this restaurant. I went for a date night with my boyfriend and loved the fact that it is BYOB. The food was good, but not amazing! I had the gnocchi with truffles, which was super delicious, but my boyfriend ordered the chicken which was very bland and we were not satisfied. Only other complaint, was that it was extremely loud in there and I felt like I was screaming at my date who was only 6 inches away from me.

Great place for a BYOB dinner. Pasta is delicious and the service was amazing. Very small restaurant so mare a reservation. The only downside is the location which is very far away from everything.

We were visiting Philly for only one night, so picking a restaurant for our group of four was important as we are all foodies. I did alot of research, and picked Burrata. We were all so pleased; everyone in the group was thanking me for selecting it. The food was delicious, the service outstanding, and we all enjoyed our evening.

Wow! What a fantastic meal. My wife and I went for our anniversary dinner after reading some reviews. We had never gone here before, but the food, ambiance and service were fantastic. We split everything so we could try more food. It was all very flavorful and perfectly sized portions, even splitting in two. We got the Burrata, potato gnocci, lamb chop, with Tiramisu and coffee to cap it off. Again, the service was fantastic: the waitress and server spaced out our dishes so we could savor and talk over our meal, without overwhelming us or interrupting. It was a great decision. We would definitely go again. We’d recommend going early as it got busy quickly.

I was looking for a special place to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and I had read reviews about birthdays and saw a picture that Burrata had put a candle in a dessert for someone! The food and service were great! Unfortunately, after leaving a note in my reservation that it was for a birthday and asked or them to add a candle to the dessert or do something special AND calling the night before to confirm, they sadly did not do anything! I was very disappointed and had to apologize to my boyfriend for it not being as special as I had planned. For it being a smaller place, I expected better communication between the staff.

As our meal was ending, one of the guests in our party turned to me and said "thank you for taking us here, we've been looking for a place just like this for years. It's a perfect neighborhood spot, just the right feel, the staff is super nice, and the food is simply wonderful.” I couldn't have put it better myself. This is a great restaurant that never fails to please. Well run, with great food and a perfect neighborhood atmosphere.

This is my go to for fine dining. The owners and staff are friendly and professional. These guys really put care into the experience of Burrata.

The tables were too close, making the small restaurant even smaller. The waitress and waiter were very good, prompt and attentive. The food was very good. They could use a more roomy waiting area, as those who are waiting have to stand right over people sitting at a table. Overall........very good, but too crowded.

We first visited Burrata when it opened in May of 2018. On that night, the waitstaff was beyond friendly and appreciative that we were there. The food was only okay, but that was to be expected on its first weekend of opening, so we decided to wait awhile before we returned.

We made it back on Sunday, March 24, and it was immediately apparent that things had changed — but not for the better. We had reservations for 7 p.m., but the restaurant was full when we arrived. We stood in the tight doorway for 20 minutes waiting for a table to be free, and were rudely pushed aside at least twice by the waitstaff, who made us feel like we in their way. We were finally seated—again, 20 minutes late—but we were never offered an appropriate apology for having to wait so long after our reservation time.

The chef even had the gall to charge us an extra $2 when I asked to replace the potatoes on my dish with steamed spinach. I mean, yeah, it's only $2, but you'd think they'd at least waive that upcharge after we had to wait so long, but no.

The meal was actually delicious, much better than it was the first time we visited, but the night was soured by the long wait and the waitstaff's inability to recognize the situation. We felt unappreciated, which is particularly a bummer coming from a restaurant that's located just around the corner from our house. We were semi regulars at August (the restaurant that was there before), often taking friends and family who were visiting from out of town, but we won't be returning to Burrata—or recommending it to anyone. Boo.

Burrata comes through again. Full restaurant on a Sunday evening. Who knew? Can’t resist the Stufato and Burrata appetizers. Actually I can’t even order Burrata anyplace else. Entrees were awesome, Salmon, Orecchiette w/pesto, ravioli w/blush sauce and pork chop special. Also loaded up on sorbets (lemon & coconut), chocolate chip cannoli & tiramisu. If you go to South Philly you gotta go to Burrata.

My husband and I had a reservation for 7pm on a Friday evening. The service and food were wonderful. We had the Frisee Caesar, Mushroom Gnocchi, Wild Boar Taglitale, Garlic Kale, and the Cannoli. We would happily order all of them again. Prices were in line with the portions and we loved that it was a BYOB.

My wife and I tried Burrata for a Pre-Valentine Day dinner. Dining room is small but comfortable. The staff and waiter were friendly and patient with the pace of service just right. Their menu is small but ample. We especially enjoyed the pappardelle with the wild boar ragout; the lamb shank and the artichoke appetizer. Dessert was a wonderful bread pudding. We will definitely return to try a few of their other pastas and entrees.

Pleasant enjoyable meal accompanied by fun music. Monkfish was well prepared . The Seafood fra diavolo was in a delicious but not spicy broth. There were hot pepper flakes available to adjust the temp.
The almond creme brulee was outstanding.
