Damn, this was one of the best meals I've had in a bit. The place was busy on a Friday night and we waited about 20 minutes to get a table. They have tons of outdoor seating as well as indoor and bar seating. Our waitress wasn't the best and she forgot our second round of drinks until after our food arrived, but that was the worst of it. Whipped Ricotta was out of this world. The fig and olive oil was awesome and the bread was perfection. The Cucumber and Peach Salad was the biggest surprise for us. It was the epitome of a summer salad and the flavors worked so well. The Funghi Pizza was so good, we finished the whole thing. The crust was heaven and the tomato sauce was delicious. We also ordered the Queen Bee which was a little too sweet for our liking, but not bad.

We came on a Saturday night around 7:30 pm and was able to get a spot in about 20 minutes. They are definitely packed so I would highly recommend making a reservation if you want indoor seating. They also do walk-ins but you have to be there to put yourself on the waitlist - and you'll probably get an outdoor uncovered spot. Their menu changes overtime. I was looking at some Yelp pictures but most of the dishes they don't have anymore. We got the whipped ricotta as appetizer, Tonnarelli Nero and Maiz pizza as entrees. Everything was so unique and delicious! I've never had egg & corn on pizza before and who knew that would be an amazing combo? the squid ink pasta was also interesting - it had chili sauce as the base. First bite I was a bit confused but the more bites you take the better it gets. And of course you have to end your meal with a salted caramel Budino. (Italian pudding). It tasted like if cheesecake and banana pudding had a baby. Can't wait to go back again to try different food!! Highly recommend - the place is also very ideal for a date night.

In a word... disappointing. I had heard so many great things pre-pandemic about Barbuzzo, that I thought that even if it slipped a little it would still have to be amazing.  I thought wrong. The food, the service, the ambiance (we sat outside) left little to be desired. I never thought I would leave thinking that we make better pizzas and pasta at home with our Breville pizzaiolo oven and my home made sauce recipes. But that's what happened. The whipped ricotta dish was good and one of 4 pasta dishes. I think we got 2-3 pizzas, too. None met my expectations. I understand that there is a shortage of industry talent and that everyone is trying to work through this. I think a little honesty and transparency goes a long way (for example, we dined outdoors at another crazy busy place last evening and the staff was apologetic and transparent about being overwhelmed and it made us even more understanding and amiable than we already were because they handled it so well). It makes me wonder about the management style difference between the two different groups and how they equip and train their staff to handle things, especially right now. For me, if I am going to go spend a few hundred dollars, I want to take my business to the company that's investing in their people and experience. Maybe things will eventually change here, and I hope they do so I can finally experience what made us want to go here in the first place.
