Good restaurant, with a real buzz. Seating at the bar or by the kitchen is fun, but it was a warm night so we sat at a table by the open front doors. Creative menu with lots of interesting choices and generous portions. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Service was efficient but not really personal, possibly because it was a busy night. We enjoyed our dining experience.

The food was amazing and so was the service. Although very crowded, don't think of putting on or taking off a jacket inside, it was an experience everyone should seek out while in Philadelphia. A bit dark, and certainly not conducive to a private dinner. If you want delicious drinks and food you will not be disappointed.

Went for lunch Tuesday the 11th. Being in the restaurant industry, I know great service and great food. Our server, Doug, was friendly knowledgeable and attentive. Food was delish! Cheeseboard was nice but the jam and honey was dripping all over. Maybe could use some better placement on the board itself but the cheeses and jams were very good themselves. Burger fries and aioli were delish too. Drinks were amazing. Sangria and Blood orange cocktails are def worth getting. We will be back soon.

Service was great . My wife and I stopped in for lunch because we live a distance away and I've been meaning to take her here and we happened to be in town. I was disappointed in the lack of selection on the lunch menu. I didn't think pizza and hamburgers when I made the reservation . The ricotta appetizer was the best thing we had . We will probably try a different place next time....especially for lunch. Dinner is much better.

Well, what was believed to be a 5 star experience turned out to be a bit of a let down. It was very loud, our waitress went MIA for about 10-15 minutes at a time, and to say it was too dark is an understatement. However, I will say the salted Carmel budino was bomb. Ok, bye.

Great time! Barbuzzo is mostly small plates... Excellent cheese plate, grilled octopus, meatballs, and gnocchi. Also great cocktails. It's quite small, loud, and dark - has a very trendy feel to it. Pretty good value for the quality of food, which was delicious. Service was also great. I'd definitely go back.
Great food and even BETTER desert! Hard ...
Great food and even BETTER desert! Hard to beat a Budino to top off a good dinner. Only reason I knocked off 1 star for ambience is because we were sitting outside. Beautiful evening, great people watching, but was somewhat ruined by smokers standing near the tables so each bite of my highly anticipated desert had a hint of cigarette smoke. Disgusting! I know that happens around the city at other outdoor dinner locations, but it is what it is.

We found the food to be very mediocre, the best thing we ordered was the pizza. Everything else was exceedingly salty, and I am usually a salt lover. We were quite disappointed, and won't be going back anytime soon

I was really disappointed by Barbuzzo. It has been on my list of places to go in Philly, but this Friday evening... it was dark, smelled like fish and was mediocre food. I felt kind of ill after I ate the meat balls. But, the salted caramel dessert was alright. It saved a complete disaster of a dining experience.

No question, this restaurant has some of the best food in the city. We enjoyed the meatballs, pizza, veggie and porcheta sandwiches and a cheese board. The downside: seating is tight, and on this particular visit, we arrived 5 minutes early for our reservation and were asked to wait outside. The door was open BTW. Good customer service? Not so much.
