Italian
“Babbo”, meaning Daddy in Italian, is inspired by family and rooted in tradition. Our food and wine has been carefully sourced from all of the diverse Italian regions.

Home-made bread and pasta compliments various Italian dishes with a true authentic taste of Italy. Babbo’s signature dish, the Lasagna al Ragout of Angus Aberdeen is born from a secret family recipe of over 100 years, passed down through generations with love and respect.

Babbo is cosy but quirky with unique artwork inspired by family.

Your restaurant, a home from home, is a place to tell stories and create new memories with friends and family. Upstairs, Babbo has a unique private dining area for special occasions or discussions over a bottle of Italian wine. Babbo is located on 39 Albemarle street, W1S 4JQ. Reservations can be made on 020 3941 8641.

Excellent restuarant with great atmosphere. One of the best, if not the best customer we have ever received. Would definitely recommend for a nice night out with some great bread baskets, pasta, desserts and wine ofcourse.

The team and general manager Bruno has been amazing and exceeded all of our expectations.

Thank you for a wonderful evening.

There were about 10 people and 5 waiters but service was still super slow. We had to remind people about drinks 3 times. Food and drink took a long time to arrive at the table despite it being pretty quiet.

We were the only people having lunch in the restaurant and they decided to place us next to the til. I asked to move and once they finally cleaned another table they seated us. The drink we had started drinking in the bar was left on the side and eventually given to us. The service was so poor we decided to leave and go to another restaurant. The bill for two drinks showed £33 despite them being £10 each. When I raised the issue, the waiter apologised and said it was a mistake. We paid and left and not one of the staff asked why we were leaving. Awful service and the ‘mistake’ with the bill raises other questions....
