Fantastic food and excellent service - get the ravioli!
Our waiter, James was amazing and made the evening special.
Excellent atmosphere, service and spectacular food! Very helpful owner who adjusted our sitting time and table due to unforeseen delays in arrivals. Will definitely be back to sample more cocktails and delicious food. Thank you so much !!
Saw Robert Downey Jr there having a late lunch w Remi Malek, he spoke and was cordial, always watchable, understated, believable actor. Babbo as usual was great, don't miss the truffle tasting menu.
I will definitely be back. I had lunch here but I will return for dinner. I just hope it won't be too long before I am back in NYC. The staff was very helpful, the food was simply delicious, the atmosphere was perfect. They took really good care of our table.
Wonderful food and service. A special place.
Excellent evening at Babbo. Tried the pasta tasting menu and each dish was delicious. The pace of service over 7 courses was flawless with only momentary pauses between each course. The tasting menu was a bit pricey but well worth it. I’ll be back.
Babbo used to be the Italian Restaurant where you want to be for a glamours night out. I'm sad to say it is now an overcrowded and very expensive place for tourists. I invited a friend of mine for her birthday. We all dressed up. Upon arrival, we found an overcrowded bar where people were having full meals, with tons of waiters coming in and out and with no place to stand. The music was way too loud and didn't match the type of restaurant. The decor over all is dated. The service is experienced trying to look professional. People around were dressed in t shirts on a Saturday night. It felt like we were in a restaurant off Times Square. The food was ok but super expensive. Not a place where I will go back or invite anyone soon
The food is OUTSTANDING!!! Every we ordered was amazingly delicious!!!
Can't wait to go back! Would definitely recommend!!!
One of the best Italian restaurants in New York. The hosts are wonderful and warm. The food and service were phenomenal
I had the best pork chop in NYC Restaurant. I went there few years ago had the lamb chop it was outstanding.
Very dark restaurant without much ambiance
Fue mi 3era ver que visitó este maravilloso lugar aunque entiendo que por el flujo tan alto provoque que el nivel de servicio sea un poco diferente, esta vez éramos 2 parejas y 3 platos estuvo perfecto y 1 muy muy salado aún le doy 4 de 5
Babbo is an excellent restaurant giving you great service and absolutely delicious food. The only thing Babbo lacks is ambiance. The decor is simple but pretty but the music is horrible. I have been to Babbo many times for the delicious pastas and have visited Mario Batali restaurants at multiple locations and the music is always the bad common factor. It is extremely loud and the the genre does not fit the atmosphere. We live all genres of music but hard rock is not the type of music I would expect in a restaurant of this quality. If I wanted to hang out in a bar and drink a beer than yes that would be fine. I felt like we had to speak loudly over the music which made us feel a little tense instead of relaxed. I would suggest changing the music and lowering it a little to be background music o my.
Wonderful meal as always!
Staff was not attentive. Food was not nearly as good as in past.
The food atmosphere and service were great. I’m a repeat customer and my daughter loves this place. She cane all the way from overseas to dine here. This restaurant was on her list of must visit while here. The atmosphere is very cozy and the staff is excellent. Wait time for service is basically now. As soon as you walk in someone’s there.
Great food as always, will visit again next time in NYC :)
Fantasric service and food. Top notch. Blew away Rezdora in an apples to apples head to head comparison
The service was amazing! Thank you, thank you, thank you, Babbo, for such an amazing meal! The perfect way to end the year!!
I was so disappointed. I remember this as bring a grand, coveted restaurant. But it’s lost it’s luster. Food was good. Service was excellent. But the music was so loud. As if you were in a teenage pizza joint. Loud 70’s music. And I mean LOUD. I called the manager over and he apologized saying this was the preference of the owner. He had heard this many times.
People, there are so many stellar restaurants in NYC. Skip this one. There are so many better options.
Absolutely amazing Restaurant!! Food was out of this world, service impeccable & staff top notch!
Best Italian that I have ever had. Professional service.
The maitre d' is curt and unapologetic. We had a reservation and he made sure to tell us there are other people waiting with no commitment to how long it would take to seat us. We were seated about 25 minutes after our reservation time, which was fine, it's the holidays and it's hard to time everything perfectly, but there is a way to handle that messaging, which clearly the maitre d' is not skilled at. More importantly, as I was speaking with the hostesses, he pushed them aside (physically) to jump in. Not sure why, but it was rude and abrupt and I honestly felt bad for the hostesses, who were already helping us. Lastly, I will say, it was our wedding anniversary, I requested a quiet romantic table, but instead we were seated downstairs in a super loud area with the music blasting. I found the whole experience sub par given the reputation that Babbo seems to carry.
Love Babbo! Friendly, well informed sommelier helps make the wine list feel smaller
Really quite poor execution. Salty everything. Seating cramped.
This is the second time I’ve eaten at Babbo. The food, service and ambiance were excellent!
Excellent food. Some of best in NYC. Calamari appetizer, skirt steaks and rabbini with garlic were excellent. Portions are appropriate. Would recommend to all visiting NYC. Having traveled to Italy much of my life, very true to trattoria style dining.
We did the pasta tasting menu which was delicious. Great ambiance with a nice romantic vibe.
Music was great, inluding Killers hits, but too loud for an elegant dinner. Service good but we were never asked if we wanted a cocktail.. the sommelier preempted any option.
Ambiance was amazing. Great staff and food. The place was decorated perfectly for Christmas. Did a wonderful job recognizing our sons birthday.
The best dining experience we have ever had. Waitstaff above and beyond. Food so amazing I have no words. It’s the place to go!!!! You must experience this restaurant!!!!!
Especially accommodating for our anniversary dinner and Babbo’s interest in giving usan exceptional evening of dining. Courses had touch fine cooking with a focus on highlighting special treatment of both traditional standards and house favorites. The wait staff and others handled the evening flawlessly.
Food and service has stayed high quality, but the restaurant has become more casual over the years, with people often coming with kids. This is not necessarily bad, but has definitely changed the vibe.
Decent food, one thing spectacular, great sweetbreads!
Excellent black bass and scallops. The wine list by the glass is great. Long wait though when it’s busy. Give your self time. Great service. Five stars. The best place in all of New York.
Sehr leckeres italienisches Essen und sehr netter und aufmerksamer Service. Pasta war ausgezeichnet
Amazing food and service from start to finish. It is one of our favorite Italian Restaurants
