I picked Barbuzzo for our last meal before driving back home. Finding a parking was challenging. My husband was losing his cool and all of a sudden the parking Gods found a spot for us five minutes away from the restaurant. Food was pretty good and portions were generous considering the prices. Service was friendly.

Heirloom Tomato Panzanella buffalo mozzarella, freshly toasted bread, soppressata, tomato vinaigrette, radicchio, shaved red onion
I forgot to take a picture of this salad. The heirloom tomatoes could have been more flavorful but otherwise it was a refreshing salad.


Caciocavallo Stuffed Meatballs house ground short rib and pork, oregano and Calabrian chile
This dish was a bargain at $11. We got three big meatballs that were very flavorful, no surprise considering the short rib and pork combo. The sauce reminded me of my own sauce. Very bright and tasty. Plenty of melted cheese to go around.

Orecchiette house made garlic sausage, oven roasted tomatoes, pecorino, and bread crumb
It was a good pasta cooked al dente. The sausage was flavorful and the roasted tomato was very good. I actually have made this dish minus the tomatoes a few times before. We were full from the other two dishes so we took most of it home. It was still good the next day.

Salted Caramel Budino with dark chocolate crust, vanilla bean caramel and sea salt
They are famous for this dessert. It was good but too sweet for me.
