This place has awesome pizza! I was debating over calabrese and napoletano but it seemed like the pizza was kinda small for two people so ended up ordering both instead! Getting a seat can be tough since the place is small, and they don't take reservations. Plus most of the tables are communal so you might be seating with random people! But overall loved the pizza, and the ambiance. Staff was small but very nice! :) I would love to come here again!

The wait is worth it. I love the fresca pizza with arugula and prosciutto, it is one of the best pizzas in town. The flavors were complex and fresh. My friend had the margherita, which was tasty and authentic, however the sauce was a little over powering and extra moist. We had leftovers, which were soggy because the moist sauce, the margherita was meant to be eaten fresh and not reheated.

Great pizza and mozzarella! The wait can be a bit of a hassle especially on the weekends. Wine and beer selection is okay. Nice date spot, small space.

A-mazing. The pizza is fantastic, especially the Fresca. Food is very well priced and the atmosphere is wine bar-esque. The only downfall is that there is always a wait. I considered giving it 4 stars because of that but it's not their fault!

If your looking for delicious Neapolitan style pizza in Austin, come here! The huge wood fire oven that makes up a 1/3 of the entire restaurant is really doing its job well. The pizza is so fresh and delicious when you take that first bite you know you'll remember Bufalina's crust. The wine list is made perfectly ito match with anything on the menu. Be warned this place doesn't take reservations so as you can imagine there's probably always a wait on the weekends and during the weekdays you could probably be sat right when they open or after around 9:30 when everything slows back down. The service is great, very hospitable and attentive to me and my dining partners needs. Things you must try!: Mozzarella Fresca pizza

After nearly a year searching for the best margherita pizza in town, Bufalina delivered! They serve the best Neapolitan pizza in Austin. Let's be clear, this means a chewy, thin dough and simple ingredients on top. I am surprised that Austin doesn't have a Vera Napoletana restaurant yet, so I was excited to find a restaurant that understood you don't need to heap ingredients on a pie to make it good. Parking is of course tight, but there are a few spots on the side. Seating is limited, so anticipate a wait; I was by myself and it took about 45 minutes at 6:30pm on a Thursday. I also got a salad which was creatively dressed and stacked instead of tossed in a bowl. Very clean and modern - perfect for a classy casual date or girl's night.

A friend raved about this place and I was dissapointed. Maybe because I took it for takeout that it was not good? The pie was soggy and chewy. Maybe due to the condensation from being in the box? I ordered a Margherita pizza and it literally had 3 leaves of basil on it. Also, I don't mind if the pizza has a little burnt spots but parts of the pizza had loose soot from the wood oven, which made the pizza taste gross.

My wife and I don't eat pizza too often even though I love pizza. I'm not too picky on the type of pizza, chicago style, new york style, etc. Pizza, if done right, is delicious to me in all forms. The line outside of this place is always long. After getting there and seeing the inside, I can understand why. I think we counted about enough seats for 50 people inside the restaurant at a time. It's pretty small but laid out pretty well. Pricing is about what I expected for a slightly "upscale" pizza joint. There were 4 adults and 2 kids on our group and we spent about $55 which was extremely cheap but I feel like that bill could have easily jumped had everyone ordered their own pizza and drinks. Bufalina is thin crust done right. I wish they had a few more options for toppings but that is pretty much my only complaint.
