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.
