As we were staying in a hotel just around the corner we went for Babbo's seeing the great reviews on Tripadvisor. The mixed grilled seafood was a treat. The Frascati wine was perfect. The waiters and waitresses however were too pushy in trying to upsell with extra suggestions. Nevertheless I recomend this place.

We ate at Babbo's several times while staying in a hotel near the Train Station, and were never disappointed. The service and friendliness in impeccable, and the food is good. The pasta is fresh, and the pizza is good too. Did not try the main course meat dishes. Good and wholesome, recommended.

The service and food in this restaurant are great!! It has a nice outdoor seating area and is two blocks away from the Independent Hotel. The garlic bread is to die for buy be careful because it is large and will fill you up fast(like a small pizza with garlic).

We were recommended this place. Came exactly the time it was open 17.30, but still had to wait to be served. The waiters still washing the floor with strongly smelled chemicals. Uuuuu! The food was ok, but the main dishes came 40 min late and not what I ordered! Finally, I've got my carbonara but it was extremely salty. Tiramisu... More

A good meal on our first night in Rome situated not far from our hotel and a joy to be able to eat outside. We shared a focaccia bread with garlic and rosemary followed by carbonara and shrimps, rice and red chard, all quite tasty.
