The restaurant is bold in its appearance from the outside. Chairs filled with people are awkwardly placed between a taxi rank and the entrance (of which there are two) to the restaurant. Once inside and greeted by friendly and approachable young staff, we were taken to our table and told to wait for our server. Five or so minutes later... More

I booked this as a special birthday meal for my boyfriend and had high hopes of having a good evening here. The food was nice and had no complaints there but the service was abysmal! If you're ladies who are single or without your partners then you'll be treated to brilliant service, flirting, lots of time and jokes on your... More

It's worth noting I've always enjoyed the food here. Before going for my brother in law's birthday on the 31st January, I'd heard Babucho have a new chef and it's not as good now, however I kept an open mind and was still looking forward to the food Can't fault the service from the Scottish gentleman who served us, he...

Having eaten at Babucho on a few previous occasions we visited again in April. We had booked a table for mid afternoon, however we were in Newcastle early so we popped in and asked if we could change our booking to eat there and then, this wasn't a problem and they were very accommodating. Rather than the usual Italian fare... More

My husband arranged a surprise 30th birthday meal for me at Babucho recently and the evening couldn't have been more perfect - the food, service, and atmosphere were all spot on. Family members who had come up from Manchester raved about the food (which we already knew to be delicious), the service was super attentive and there were no hitches... More

I was with a party of 17 and we were very well looked after. I can only be amazed at how they get everyone's meals out at the same time for a group, in a full restaurant. They still had time to make the youngest one feel special by letting her build her own pizza. And they assembled the birthday... More
