BUZO OSTERIA ITALIANA (Port of Spain, Trinidad)

Buzo Trinidad

Buzo Osteria Italiana (Trinidad)

Buzo’s Cristian Grini was our chef for our first Sunday Italian Brunch at Fanatic Kitchen Studio on August 25th, see all the pictures from brunch here.

Also, don’t miss the post & pictures of our most recent visit to BUZO and Chef Cristian Grini’s favourite dishes in Trinidad!

According to TripAdvisor, BUZO OSTERIA ITALIANA is the #1 restaurant in Trinidad.

We’ve dined at BUZO several times and are happy to report that BUZO does deserve its high marks.  This is a place where the ambiance, service and most importantly the food beautifully come together for a great dining experience.  Click here for our latest Buzo pictures.

BUZO’s extensive menu offers a wide variety of housemade pastas, pizzas, seafood and meat entrees, vegetables, salads, soups, appetizers and desserts (see menu links below).  Our last meal at BUZO started with an excellent Portobello Salad made with meaty portobello mushrooms, arugula and spinach, and topped with freshly shaved Parmesan cheese.  Next up were the entrees, which were divine – a perfectly smoked lobster with tagliolini pasta & tomato sauce (Aragosta); grilled lamb chops in a tasty mint sauce (Costarelle); and Pappardelle pasta in a rich mushroom cream sauce.  This simple pasta dish was beautifully balanced, rich with addition of the cream and earthiness added from the woodsy mushrooms.

For dessert, we selected Tiramisu and an Affogato al Caffe, which was our favourite sweet treat — vanilla gelato immersed in espresso and topped with fresh cream & shaved chocolate.

  1. I had lunch today with two of my girlfriends our first time. ..the meal was awesome, we had vegetarian pasta, with an exciting dessert, all with great service and wonderful ambiance ..thank you Buzo. …am wondering though any of your meats halaal? We weren’t sure.

  2. Took my boyfriend here last night for his birthday, he had a wonderful time, the service was impeccable. Even though we were a bit late for our reservation we were seated in quick time. The lighting and decor was comfortable and romantic. The food was amazing. He even got a complimentary scoop of ice cream for his birthday and that was to die for. We will be visiting buzo again and again!

  6. Hi, I’ve been searching high and low for a restaurant to take my boyfriend to for his birthday and from the reviews I will really like to have the Buzo experience, however I’m a little concerned with the portion size of the main course. Could someone clarify if its really worth it or should I seek alternatives

  7. Went here July 2012….it was for my Gf Bday and it was worth it, the atmosphere and food was top notch yet to experience any other place like it in Trinidad, great staff too

  8. We live in Tobago and our 1st stop right off the ferry is Peche for Kamal’s fabulous breads and pastries; then later in the day on to lunch at Buzo; we LOOOOVE Buzo… it is the most authentic Italian restaurant in the Caribbean, to rival anything in Milan or Rome, anywhere in Italy; the salads (arugula in particular) are scrumptious, as are the pizzas and pastas…the service is the best in Trinidad, and the prices are inline with the whole experience…thanks, Cristian, for bringing such a welcome addition to Trinidad & Tobago

  9. Although the ambiance is nice (at night), I won’t feel satisfied just paying for that only, because the food portions were so small that the main course felt like an appetizer to me (no exaggeration). My dessert was a kind a chocolate mousse that tasted too rich (i.e. too chocolatey and too sweet) and it was so hot in the middle that it tasted microwaved; had to let it cool a bit before eating. Had we paid about half of what our total bill was, then we’d have felt like we got our money’s worth. My point is, nice restaurant, but definitely overpriced menu.

  10. Went to Buzo last night with high expectations and the experience was over rated sadly. The bread at the table was plain with a tomato baked in, A garlic bread would have been prefered choice . The anti pasta was just ok the salami was deli freah taste didnt go down well. the prociutto was nice the cheese in the red wax was good and parmesan was also nice they was this one slice i believe is a fig pastry yum.. olives were really briney.. also tried eggplant zucchini goat cheese pizza. I wish some olive oil and salt was added would have been nice over the eggplant instead of just placing it on the pizza and .. too little goat cheese. also had the fish ,shrimp, calamari, came in a tomato sause wasnt nice .. a carbonara wouldnt have been a lot nicer.. just something cream sauce

    • Hi Roderick ,i am truly sorry that we did not meet you expectation,the bread that you actually get it call Focaccia bread,focaccia is well known as a bread born in Genova(Focaccia Genovese) ,usually its top up with tomatoes,onion or olives,since before we open buzo we decide that we would go with something original from Italy,unfortunately Garlic Bread is too American for us to serve(nowhere in Italy we serve Garlic bread),concerning the Antipasti we are happy you enjoy the fig cake,about the pizza ,the purpose of olive oil and salt on the table is for you to use as much you want,(we dont like to make our food way too salty just for a dietary purpose)The guazzetto di pesce is one of our big seller,and i know could be too tomatoe but some people like it like that way(and we do also :) ),carbonara will come soon,due to the fact that all our pasta are made in house,soon we will start to make fresh spaghetti to join the beautiful meaty and creamy sauce of a carbonara.
      Have a fantastic week and hope you will give us another chance,thank you for your honest feedback.
      Regards
      Cristian

  11. Tried Buzo, it was really great. Nice cappucino and the creamy goat cheese and eggplant pasta was a lovely surprise (I don’t usually enjoy eggplant LOL). Will definitely be dining there again, thanks for the great review
