We stayed at hotel around the corner that referred us to Babbos. The food was great and reasonably priced. Bravo Babbo!

Babbo has a full menu but the Lasagna Bolognese will melt in your mouth. A quality of cooking above many other restaurants in the same vicinity..

My husband and I stayed 6 nights in The Independent Hotel and ate at Babbo's on 5 nights. What can i say? The restaurant is small and cosy, and made my husband and I feel so welcome every time with the impeccable service. The waiters are knowledgable and never try to sell us anythng, They provide us with good recommendations... More

We'd been hoping to find something tasty in the Termini area, but this wasn't it. We had pasta and pizza, and the pizza was marginal - soggy, as others had mentioned. We didn't find the waiters to be pushy, as some say, but nothing about the restaurant really stood out. We didn't linger for dessert or coffee.

We had a lovely, leisurely evening meal in this lively well organised restaurant and would recommend. Well priced for the quality of the food and the general ambiance. We had 3 courses plus a bottle of Chianti for €94.

Waiter a bit pushy, but if you weren't sure what to choose that would be acceptable. Bread extra. Pizza soggy. Our English friends thought it was great. We thought it was like an English/ Italian chain restaurant.

Awesome! Friendly service, food was fantastic! Really close to our hotel so we frequented Babbo's almost every evening we were in Rome. Thanks to Sabrina and all the staff! We cannot wait to visit you again.
