The seat that i was actually sitting on got a lot of kicks from the people that was going through.

Seated so close to the next table that I could have eaten off their plate. Wait staff offered limited apologies for the poor meal. We won’t be back.

Food was good enough but not as good as it used to be. Service was great however. Will not return - much better restaurants in the City offering better ambience and food. Not good value for money.

I like Led Zeplin, but not while I eat at a nice Italian restaurant for a birthday dinner. Not a good mix. Aside from that, it's excellent.

Everything was very good, but Spaghettoni was a disappointment because of 2 reasons. 1) Lobster was overcooked and really rubbery. 2) There was a medium piece of lobster shell inside the dish that almost broke my tooth and really hurt my upper gums. Off course, the dish was taken out of my bill. Service was excellent, staff was friendly and professional.

You need to know what you are signing up for. The history of this place is part of the experience, it is not a giant restaurant, it is very crowded and everything is very tightly fit in, including the tiny bathroom on the second floor where the toilet is so close to the wall you can hardly even sit down. You are sitting very very close to other tables, which I am sure is the reason for the very loud rock music playing on the speakers, to help with some aggressive white noise so you are not having to listen to conversations at other tables and strangely, it works. It is like you are at a party and if you know that is what it is like, it is a fun experience. If you want quiet and romantic with fast service, this is not for you. I was there with my son who I was visiting so I was perfectly content to sit at the table for 3 hours while our food came very slowly. We got our appetizers an hour and 15 minutes after we ordered. I did inquire about our food at one point to a hostess who seemed to be managing the room and she was so kind and helpful and she checked on us a few times the rest of the night and we ended up with a number of free extra items from the chef for our wait. Again, I did not mind as it gave me more time with my kid. Our server was very nice but completely absent, almost an hour would go by without seeing him. The wait staff in general however were attentive and kind. The sommelier was helpful and very nice too. Our food was amazing, every bit of it. I would particularly recommend the wagu beef carpaccio appetizer, the pear and pecorino ravioli (amazing), the Osso Bucco and the quail were both very good. Go for the history and the experience, it is worth it, but be patient and know you will not have a lot of personal space.

Great cocktail list with my favorite the babbo spritz and impressive, extensive, interesting wine list with many barolo options. The restaurant ended up making two completely new dishes for us to take home after accidentally throwing out our leftovers that we had planned to wrap up - what a class act to have done this - many thanks to our server and chef for going above and beyond to make our mother's day celebration unforgettable.

Had the porkchop which didn’t have much flavor and the presentation of the plate looks like it was done by a 5th grade student, at best. The music was hard rock and roll which def didn’t fit the vibe of the evening or the restaurant. Such a shame as this clearly isn’t the restaurant that everyone tried to get a table at back in the day

Our waiter was over stressed and literally running between tables. He stopped at our table perhaps three times over 2.5 hours. The experience was choppy with long long pauses between courses. Background music so loud could not hear server and was hard to talk to the person literally 1” away from me. The incessant activity up and down the stairs added to the sense of noise and lack of place. Pasta is memorable. Other dishes were not. We won’t return even though we live around the corner - and were reminded why we hadn’t been back for 10 years. That said, many diners seemed happy to be there.

I told the server, she took it away, apologized profusely, and gave me a menu to order something else. my wife was already eating so I decided to share hers. we saved our trip to Babbo for a special occasion. thanks for making it far from special.

The food was good and the plating was nice. I will definitely return during a weekday to see if there is a difference in food quality. The food was good but based on reviews, I thought I would be blown away. We dined on a very busy Saturday night so that’s always a factor. By no means should anyone not experience Babbo. The food was delicious. The music was loud but tolerable. I really do have to state that the service was exceptional again.
