The candle-lit, cozy environment is very welcoming (unless I had children...and a stroller...) for a great date night, or time with friends (I've been for both). The wine selection is amazing and the small plates reminded me of an "Italian tapas" restaurant. Being Italian, it is hard to impress me - especially with Italian gravy - but they do not... More

Came here for a quick solo bite post-conference and left a little disappointed. The restaurant was packed - always a good sign - so I sat at the bar. Bar-hipster took my order in fairly disinterested fashion (not an issue, he's a busy guy and needs to maintain a hip veneer). I asked for olives to start followed by gnocchi.... More

Sharing plates, the recommended strategy, provides a flavorful variety of options. The brussels sprouts and branzino were particularly good. My wife and I (mid-60's) definitely skewed the age demographics. On a January midweek evening, the joint was jumping. The narrow space, hard surfaces and packed tables (plus the unnecessary music) contributed to a loud, high-energy experience.

Perfection for solo or non-solo drinking and dining...arrive early, dine and drink at the bar...unbelievably fresh, delicious, and unique food and attentive service. Loved every minute of it.

Such delicious salads and pizza! Creative, seasonal menu choices coupled with a cozy atmosphere and excellent service make this a great lunch spot. I've been here in the past for dinner and haven't been as impressed (too loud, service only ok), but I'll definitely keep Barbuzzo on my short list of Center City lunch destinations.

Came here for lunch. Had the standard Margherita pizza. It was fine. Not great, not bad. The beer was average as well. Good place in a pinch. Wouldn't go back however.

This tends to be my go to place when I am in Philadelphia and dining solo. It is really comfortable with really great Italian/Mediterranean specialties. The bar is great if dining solo, but it is a great place to meet friends.

Another sister-in-law recommendation, and another one that nailed it. I sat at a tiny wrought iron table that teetered on the edge of the curb. The waitstaff were adept at dodging the sidewalk traffic while tending the tables. The folks at the next table to me live in Philly and asked me how I'd managed to find the best place... More

This place is packed so a reservation is highly recommended. You can also try your luck for a seat at the bar, which offered the same menu items as the table service. The wine list is a bit on the expensive side. We ordered the roasted bone marrow, venison Bolognese pasta, grilled octopus and a bread pudding. Each is very... More
