I would say that, overall, Barbuto was good but not great. Went there with my family on a Sunday night, so the restaurant was fairly quiet. The food was good but nothing wowed us. I would say that the gnocchi was delicious, the spelt side dish was great, the chicken was really good for a chicken, and everything else was pretty good. Besides the chicken, the portions were pretty small. It wasn't overly, expensive though so I can't complain too much. So, if you are in the area and want to give Barbuto a try, it's good and you'll probably like it. But I don't think it's worth travelling far for and there are restaurants that are just as good around NYC.

Myself and three ladies had dinner at this fabulous quaint restaurant. The staff was extremely attentive and had excellent suggestions about the menu. Very affordable with great portions! I found a gem! The warm squash salad, braised short ribs, and bolognese pasta were fantastic. Love love love this place!

I go to Barbuto regularly and think they have the best gnocchi in town. It is nice because they change the accompaniments with the season, so in summer it has asparagus and winter it has a sausage ragu. Love the variety, keep it up!

The service was good and the food really is excellent BUT...it's lame and almost offensive that they charge $3.50 if you ask for your like...3-4oz coffee cup to get refilled. Who else does that? VERY stingy, rude and rubs me the wrong way.

Had an excellent meal. Food, service and ambiance were all great. The gnocchi was great. Server was pushing the chicken which we didn't get, but I'll certainly be back soon to try it. Portions weren't so large, but neither were the prices. Overall I was very impressed.

Barbuto's quiet west village location and layout in an old garage sets the stage for unique all around dining experience. While the food and presentation isn't overly creative, it's freshness and suprisingly pallet friendly tastes make it's simple offerings come to life. The waitstaff is attentive, and the bus boys are continously filling your water glass. It's a bit cramped, and you may get the impression of being "rushed" out the door, but it's trendy location makes for a great meal and some above average people watching.

Excellent, beautifully prepared food, the portions are small, but that’s a good thing, as you can order more appetizers and side dishes to share around your entrees. The wine list is good and not expensive. The entrees are all superb. The scallops divine. There is only one big draw back to this restaurant: After two hours they want your table. Even If you ordered every item on the menu and had four bottles of wine, they will bring you the check before you ask for it—and if you don’t take the hint—the hostess will then come over and say she needs your table. This of course ended our evening, and left our group with a very bad taste. If that is Barbuto’s policy (2 hours per table) they need to tell you so when you make your reservation. It was a real turn-off, and as good as the food was, I can’t imagine any of us will return.
