It can be hard replicating what makes a restaurant special, but Bufalina gets pretty damn close with their second location, Bufalina Due, on Burnet Road. The pizzas are just as good (if not better), the wine selection is still one of the most interesting in the city, and the staff here is just as likely to chat with you about everything from the day’s specials to the merits of Jimmy Buffet. While it’s not quite as popular as the original, it’s also a lot easier to walk in and get a seat without a wait, which is pretty special in our book.
