Babbo's has some of the most delicious food I've eaten in Italy. The pasta is hand crafted with so many interesting and delicious flavours, the wine is magnificent and the service is divine.

Our hotel recommended this pizzeria as it was late and we didn't want a fussy meal and it was on the same road as our hotel. We were seated outside which was nice. We ordered wine, garlic bread, two pizzas and two desserts and were given a complimentary dessert wine and biscotti. It was nothing special but all very nice.... More

We visited Babbos Restaurant on recommendation from the hotel that we were staying in. It happened to be on the same road as the hotel so was really convenient too. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food was of a good quality, well presented and cooked to perfection. We didn't think that it was expensive, probably what... More

We had a meal here when we stayed in Rome in September. Food was good and restaurant had a nice feel and was busy enough. We sat outside under the covered terrace and the staff were very attentive. The food was good and plentiful and there is a very extensive food and drink menu to choose from. It's not expensive... More

So many cheap run down places in Rome to eat ... but ... this place was the real deal .... wonderful, authentic and delicious. Make sure to order their garlic bread .... it comes like a pizza with olive oil and fresh garlic roasted on top. Soooo good. All their pasta is homemade ... the best I have ever tasted.... More

Everything about it was nice. Staff was clearly pushed by manager to keep doing something but they were all friendly. Went two nights in a row and we're surprised by how decent the prices were. We'll be back! :)

Our hotel recommended this restaurant, but overall dining experience was bad. Waitress tried to rush you to place orders without good recommendations. Even bread needs to be charged here. Worst part of it is very average food with no cheap price... It kind of ruin my aptitizer for this trip... :(

The food was ok . The service was terrible. It was all about get them in get them out ASAP. If you want to eat and run this resturant is for you. If your meal is your evening out go somewhere else. No personal connection at all.

This time my trip to Rome was half full of AMAZING things, but also some very disappointing ones. The service in most restaurants was less then desirable with 2 exceptions, and finally my last night here is what makes my 4 days trip to be one I leave with great feelings. Starting with the exceptionally personal service, leading to the... More

We were staying close to here and our hotel recommended Babbo's. Good choice by them. Good food - we all had seafood and the recommended house wine to go with it. Atmosphere was good - the maitre'd was very helpful and the service was very good. Grappa selection at the end rounded it off well.
