What Insiders Are Saying
Babbo is still the best place to feel good in this town.
Posto davvero ottimo! Personale molto gentile e preparato. Molto consigliato a chi vuole godersi un’ottima cena e/o pranzo
The Caprese salad I ordered as a starter was very fresh. I also ordered a dish called Mint Love Letters, which were ravioli made with mint and spicy sausage. It was amazing. The waitress was knowledgeable and not the least bit condescending. Overall, a wonderful experience.
Very good food and attentive service
We took our two small children for a spur of the moment dinner at 9:45 because it’s summer and our kids love fancy meals and cooking shows. It was still romantic and the staff were very charming. We love the music and the feel of the place. Food very similar to kind I grew up on, done very well, feels fancy but still fun.
We celebrated our anniversary on saturday and everything was amazing. The service and care we received was just wonderful! We would definitely go back!
My last time at Babbo was over 7 years ago and I loved it then. However, my recent dinner there was just average. It has lost its charm and needs some type of reinvigoration both with the food and the environment. Wine list was great and service was very good but overall we were disappointed and I would not go back...unless something changes.
Excellent food and service. Babbo is in full form and remains a favorite for personal and business meals or eating solo at the bar. Highly recommended.
Everything was awesome
Delicious food (baby beets, mint love letters, sea scallops, grilled lamb chops,topped off with cappuccino and chocolate hazelnut cake), very attentive and personable server and waitstaff - a lovely experience and definitely one to be repeated!
Babbo went above and beyond our expectations. Service was next level. We went for my boyfriends birthday, and they were so attentive. Everything we ordered was phenomenal. Would recommend this highly
Topnotch service and delicious Italian! The lamb's tongue vinaigrette is amazing. The mint love letters is exquisite! We had a great wine from Tuscany with the help of a very knowledgeable sommelier. We can't wait to be back.
Although the service was good, it felt as though the food was overpriced and lacking flair. Don’t try the pig foot Milanese appetizer- it lacked any semblance of taste. The lamb chops are recommended however. First time to this establishment but likely not going back.
9th visit. Better and ever! This place puts all
Other pasta places to shame.
Amazing experience. Had many tasting menus but never a pasta one. Excellent quality and flavours and accompanying wine pairing was superb.
Food was delicious, service outstanding, we booked the last seating for lunch, never felt rushed
We have been to Babbo several times and returned to celebrate my husbands birthday. While some dishes were wonderful (crispy sardines, fregola with corn, pastas) some were just average. The ambiance did not feel as elegant or intimate. It seems as if they have added tables so they are closer together and feel less intimate, and people were not all dressed for a top restaurant...some in sneakers and casual clothes (at 7pm on a Friday night). The service was excellent as always. Unfortunately, we probably won't be back as there are several other excellent and elegant Italian restaurants in NYC.
We always love Babbo, it’s one our favorites in New York, great food, great service, great atmosphere, great night!
Well above expectation. Food was fantastic and service immaculate. Babbo has now become one of my favorite restaurants. 5 🌟
Too bad. This restaurant use to be top draw. Now it’s run of the mill and way to loud. The choice of music is insulting to their patrons.
Love this place- second time and will be 3rd for sure!
Babbo is a very good restaurant. Upon our arrival, we were greeted and seated in a professional manner.
Our waiter, brought over our menus and explained the specials for the evening. The service was very very professional. The wine menu had excellent choices. We chose to have Prosecco which was excellent. The chef sent to our table a tasting from the kitchen, which was marinated chickpeas, and it was tasty. Our entrees were prepared very well, but a tad on the salty side. The music played was inappropriate for this restaurant (Classic Rock Music)! Overall it was an enjoyable experience, the attentive service, ambiance, and the culinary delight should be experienced by one and all.
Food was incredible and the servers were super friendly. We enjoyed it a lot.
Loved it. Once again Babbo does not disappoint! We had the pork belly ragu special and the seasonal vegetables with burrata pasta. Yum!!
Food was even better than expected. Wonderful that it's keep up with the quality and standard after 21 years.
Killer vino (Rosso de Mont), b+ food -- did the pigs foot Milanese (VERY fatty, but tasty) and the beef cheek ravs (pasta on point but beef cheek was almost minced -- no structure); not bad but not great
Superb food and wine and good service. Would go back.
Good food, good service& good atmosphere
Amazing food, amazing service, amazing experience. Couldn't recommend the Pasta Tasting Menu with the Riserva Wine Pairing. Super knowledgeable staff and sommeliers to make this a world class dining experience.
No way this is a one star Michelin restaurant
They have no clue
The food was delicious. The service was impeccable. My wines were extraordinary. The loud and intrusive music, however, made for difficult dinner conversation and we opted out of dessert and coffee to go home. It simply was not relaxing.
Food was terrific and loved the ambiance. Very romantic.
Excellent as always
We opted for the tasting menu with the wine pairing. The pairings were perfect! Our server was so engaging and wonderful.
We arrived early to the restaurant, but there was nowhere to wait for a table. We could not sit at the bar to wait because bar seats were reserved for diners, so we had to go out walking around the neighborhood in 95 degree heat. When we came back to the restaurant at our reservation time, we had to wait for 15 more minutes standing. When we were finally seated, the service was very slow and it took forever to get a drink and water. In addition, Babbo plays loud music which kills the ambiance in my opinion. When we finally got food, it was very good; however, I would not go to Babbo again because it was such a pain.
Babbo exceeded all expectations and was reasonably priced for a Michelin 1 Star restaurant. Definitely will return.
The sommelier and manager were fantastic! Unfortunately our waiter was pretty awful but the other two were able to pick up his slack. Food wasn’t necessarily mind blowing.
Great food and service. Made an early reservation for an anniversary. Was seated by the stairs with lots of staff coming and going. Was also a little warm. Place is quite loud due to the music.
Great food, every single mouthful was
Delish. Fave was the octopus. A little dark but a lot of the restaurants in New York are. Service was great. Not too noisy. Highly recommended.
