What Insiders Are Saying
Babbo is still the best place to feel good in this town.
Waiter was not very informative when we asked questions. Meal felt rushed even though the food was tasty.
I have been to Babbo numerous times over the last 15 yeara. Never went to lunch before. Was a horrible mistake. Un memorable, bad meal.
Nothing like i had ever had there. I think i'm done and not going back, definitely no lunch.
I have never had better pulpo in my life. It was fantastic. The salad was great.. so was the wine.. Everything was lovely.
Dinner at Babbo was the cornerstone of our trip to NYC. The food was excellent, the service was impeccable, and the atmosphere was lively and energetic. We even met owner Joe Bastianich, who was the consummate host and professional. We had the pasta tasting menu, and one dish was better than the next. Amazing flavors and textures, beautiful presentation. It's not cheap, and for pasta, that is a bit of an issue with me (which is why I only gave it 4 stars in value), but it's Babbo in NY at the holidays, and we'd go back in a heartbeat.
Amazing experience. The staff was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. It volume of the room was loud, but it didn’t detract from the experience.
Very nice restaurant with great food and service. Atmosphere was warm.
Without a doubt the prior reviews regarding the Ambient noise level was correct. That said, the food is outstanding and the service was exactly what I was expecting. A marvelous wine menu. Without wine food is an exceptional value.
Perfection! Food was fantastic and service exemplary! Any reason to go there is a good one- can’t possibly be disappointed.
We also met the sommelier who was outstanding and so passionate about her wine.. gave us a tour of the cellar which was breathtaking. A friend in our party is a serious wine collector. Thanks for a wonderful evening
Heard so many good things about Babbo so I was really excited. SUCH a let down. The food was completely underwhelming and bland. Don't waste your money!
As usual it was an excellent dining experience.
My pasts with lobster meat was nothing special. Pasta was over cook and the tomato sauce was too sweet for me. Had to wait for 20 mins for our table on a Sunday night with a reservation. This place is just over priced on everything.
Birthday dinner - a bit loud but nice white truffle tasting menu.
Best meal and service my family has experienced in many years. Babbo’s Sommelier Ms. Neuman was a particular standout. She was incredibly knowledgeable, down to earth, enthusiastic and charming. Wonderful evening.
Cozy environment! Nice for the holiday season! Great foods and flavors!
Just wonderful!! Best Italian food I've had in a while!! Will be back soon!
Fantastic experience at Babbo! Celebrated my wife's 30th birthday and they treated her very well. The atmosphere was great, and the entire staff was very attentive. We started with the grilled octopus and mussels and they were both delicious. We then moved on to our entrees which were both pasta based. My wife had the goat cheese tortelloni and I had the pappardelle with white truffles, both amazing. These were paid with some great wines recommended by the super Sommelier. Overall it was a great experience!
Because of Batalli's negative profile we have not been to any of his restaurants for some time. Babbo was close, available and it was very cold....
We were very pleasantly surprised at lunch. It is pricey but the food quality was excellent and the portions were substantial. We shared the pork belly pasta pyramids. The portion was divided in the kitchen which is always nice. They were shaped pastas stuffed with ground pork belly and a delicious sauce. My partner had the octopus and I had the grilled skirt steak. They were both beautifully plated and properly done.
No dessert but the martini was righteous though the beer was very foamy. Excellent expresso.
Too bad Mario is a creep because we would like to return.
The food was excellent and the service was top-notch. This is one of my favorite restaurants in the city.
In just one word: excellence.
Worthy in all senses, I can’t be happier.
We had a fabulous time at Babbo, service was exceptional, the food was fabulous and unique. One of us had the octopus which was incredible, I has been had chestnut ravioli… To die for. Everything that we had was bursting with flavor.
The ravioli and the mussels were amazing. Per the reviews, we were about to order the olive oil cake for dessert but our server steered us towards the cheesecake and it was the best cheesecake I’ve ever had in my life.
Absolutely amazing experience from start to finish! Pasta tasting menu and wine pairings were both incredible!
Great Italian and wonderful sommelier. A bit stuffy but overall a wonderful lunch
I could not believe this was considered a Michelin star restaurant. The food was not mind blowing and the service was mediocre at best. Either I hold too high of a caliber or this place is extremely overrated. Will not be coming back
Have tried to get in for so long so we decided lunch. The food and the service was impeccable. Highly highly recommend this restaurant. Just keep trying and if you can’t get in go for lunch someday
Still on top of their game - and that's quite a lofty perch indeed.
Fantastic food and service.
Food was excellent. Service was prompt. Music was a little too loud.
Personally, not my cup of tea. Luv, luv Lupa! The Arugula Salad, while good, wasn’t anything special. The pasta was excellent but the Bolognese was s bit sweet For my liking. Service was good.
Food was excellent, and the staff was very friendly, and willing to provide recommendations on the menu.
I have enjoyed this restaurant many times but it has been a few years since I have dined there. I was really surprised by the lack of welcoming at the restaurant. No one oriented us to the 40 page wine list, walked through the menu for the people at our table who had not dined there before and when we did order, our food was rushed. They were constantly asking to remove our dishes. And when we arrived we were the only people seated upstairs.
The food was excellent but the service was tremendously disappointing, bordering on rude. For a $600 meal I would hope for better.
Best Italien we had in New York. Their pastas are to die for -simply mouthwatering. Everything very authentic and great wines too. It will be on my “try again “ list. Great great value for money.
Overall food was good but not great. Did not live up to the hype. The loud, rock n roll music (same album played the whole time we were there) killed the experience for us.
The food was good, but it didn't blow me away. I wanted to be blown away.
Choice of background music very odd at points. Down a notch and selection review
Continuously, wonderfully outstanding, not exceptional but outstanding!
We loved their cocktails, particularly the Manhattan. Great date spot with delicious, high quality food.
Overbooked and overcrowded restaurant. Not a pleasant experience
This was our first time at Babbo and it was an amazing experience. We had the pasta tasting and it was an unforgettable meal. I highly recommend it!
