The courtyard dining experience was excellent. Brunello de Montalcino by the glass. Home made pasta - fantastic! Service was friendly and good.

We had such a great night at Babette - the food was top notch (a bit pricey but very much worth it), the service was not overbearing and attentive when necessary, and the inner courtyard of the restaurant is quiet and well covered (definitely reserve seats out there if you can).
