    The Best

    Everything works. No matter which dish you choose, you will not be disappointed. Although expensive, it was well worth it: service, recommendations, taste, presentation, and ambience erases the fact you're going to spend some serious coin. Thank you to the cute sommelier for the wine selection. Hands down favorite restaurant in City.

    host was rude...food good

    i took my girlfriend their for her birthday on an early sunday dinner. the host immediately questioned on what we were doing in the restaurant and if we had reservations. UH yeah we did. aside from the rude host, we opted to stay and the food was good. loved the bean bruschetta & arugula parmesan salad. wine recommendation by our server was excellent. would go back as long as i never see the host's face ever again.

    what a headache

    impossible to get through on the phone. you finally get to eat there and have to listen to loud over played music. there is nothing interesting about this place except for the lemmings that work there- who are afraid to step out of the box and deviate at all from what they are told to do. we were told they could not lower the music even though they were literally blasting "trucking" (played out dead song that has nothing to do with italian food) on REPEAT. it was actually funny how annoying it was. when asked why they couldn't lower it, they said because they aren't allowed to. the food was fine, everything else was not. overall, it was unsophisticated and irritating.

    Amazing Meal!

    My boyfriend took me to Babbo for my birthday, and we got the pasta tasting menu. It was amazing!! The quality of the food was undeniable, and we got to try so many different things! The service was great, though it was hard to understand the waitstaff at times because the restaurant was so loud. It was an amazing meal, and I would definitely recommend it to pasta lovers!

    A hot spot!

    I went to Babbo last Thursday with my best friend. Yes, we had the typical 1 hour wait at the bar, but we ordered some good wine.I had Gavi di Gavi (excellent!!) and she had some good Umbrian red wine (fantastic!!). While waiting for our table , we observed the bar crowd. As usual we were the best looking gals, but we also saw some other very attractive men and women. Where was Parker Gregory (the hot model!!)? I heard he often goes to Babbo. After 2 bottles of wine, we could care less about the food (Great beef ravioli!!) or the waiter. We had a fantastic time and will definitely go back! Thanks Mr. Batalli!!!!

    Most Unfriendly Staff in NY

    Yes, I live in NY. Yes, I eat out quite frequently. And I find it obnoxious when reviews assume anyone having anything negative to say simply doesn't understand NY dining etc. Maybe, like me, they just didn't like the experience. After having waited the mandatory month for my table, I could not have been more disappointed at the overall experience. I don't care about waiting a bit for for a reservation - that happens. I do care that the obnoxious front of house acts as if they are doing you favor by allowing you to wait. Somellier was they worst, starting to open a second bottle of wine before we'd even ordered it! Lamb tongue was the only thing we had that I would consider outstanding. Rest good, not great. Subpar experience where pretentious staff made good but not great food a highly disappointing overall experience. I've had better pasta and service in the East Village.

    Amazing

    Went to Babbo the other night for the first time and WOW!! Amazing! The service is perfect as is the entire experience. Appetizers we had the cockles which were very light and nice and the orichette pasta with greens and meat (also great). Main courses were a special crispy orata in blood orange sauce with pine nuts -yum! and the rack of lamb (just perfectly done and again....YUM!) Sides were the broccoli rabe with roasted garlic and the brussel sprouts. Dessert we had the tasting of sorbet that was just the best ending to a wonderful meal. Have fun and I can't wait to go again to try more things
