Second time we had lunch. It's quiet, and charming. Not very exciting food and not inexpensive. Good place for a Mario sighting-he seems to hang out here at lunch. Maybe he can zip up the menu a bit. Beef cheek ravioli could have been filled with anything. We would not go back again.

Completely overrated. Service is obnoxious and the food is too heavy. Pass on this and try some of the other great Italian places in NYC

Echoing other recent reviews, we found Babbo seriously disappointing. While the food presentation was impressive, the service and ambience were both surprisingly mediocre. Our experience consisted of a rude hostess from the get-go, an inattentive and snotty waiter, frenetic bus boys, loud and puzzling music (werewolf in london twice in 20 minutes? morphine? what?) Overall the food was good (albeit salty), but not exceptional and certainly not worth the $100 price tag per person. Babbo appears to be another victim of celebrity chef syndrome.We'll check this one off our list and won't be back. And won't be stopping by Eataly either.

Food is great but the wine mark up has to be the most outrageous in the city. At a recent dinner we had the sommelier select a borolo for us, which ended up being ok. When we got the bill it was a $250 bottle that retails for $29.99. Ouch

I think the title says it all. Went there for a special occasion, and am glad I got it out of my system. Although the food was outstanding, the service was horrendous. The waiters might want to take a class from the runners/busboys on manners, and etiquette. Will not be back. And hopefully after reading the millions of other reviews, hopefully they will do something about this.

I've dined here three times. pastas are usually good but better places can be found in NYC like morini. tonight all four pastas were over salted. apps and entrees were so-so; branzino was disappointing. only standout was the pineapple dessert. service was good but what a rude maitre-d! we had reservations for an early dinner and he told our party of five that we must leave by a certain time for the next seating. what restaurant does that? who do they think they are? never going back.

Still nothing like Babbo. Fantastic food and service, some excellent new things on the menu, they never lose a step.
