Indulge yourself with our take on Italian comfort food

Our elves have been busy working away on a new menu here at Buffo, and we’re excited to release it just in time for the holiday shopping season!

We’ve kept a few signature dishes like Spaghetti Pomodoro and the Margherita Pizza, while introducing some soon-to-be favourites like our creamy Mushroom Risotto and house-made Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake.
