I came to Babette for a large dinner with around 20 colleagues. Overall, the place looks great, nicely decorated and well maintained. Too bad there is no cell reception or WiFi. Food is OK, but not great. I had good salmon ravioli, but it was way over-sauced. The Milanese Schnitzel was good, but had too much butter/oil in it, and... More

this restaurant was recommended by someone we met on the train to Rome. In 4 trips to Rome this is probably the best place I've found to eat. Real family atmosphere, fantastic genuine food and wine and magnificent service. Can't speak to highly of it. Try it and see, oh yeah real value for money.

My two sisters and I had dinner at Babette's in October, 2014. Everything was great from the warm welcome when we entered, the nice table we were given even though we didn't have reservations and wonderful service. We all ordered different entrees and were pleased that they were all delicious - perfectly prepared. We then ordered a few desserts, one... More

The Via Margutta is a lovely street narrow not far from the Spanish Steps filled with small antique stores and high-end boutiques. Babette offers a prix fixe lunch from Tuesday to Friday which includes a nice range of dishes. I had a simple dish: buffalo mozzarella, local ham, and chopped tomatoes. Nothing special in itself, but with ingredients as fresh... More

Went on a weekend trip to Rome and ended up eating dinner at Babette the evening we arrived based on recommendations from TripAdvisor. We were most plecently surprised by the friendliness and good service from the staff and the food was also very good. During the following two days we ate lunch and dinner at other restaurants, although we got... More

I've been to this restaurant over the years and the food is always reliably good. On warmer months, the courtyard with the fountain in the middle is a pleasant place to dine in. They also have a reasonably-priced brunch on Sundays that's worth going to.

We have been coming to this restaurant for brunch on sundays ( and the odd saturday) for years. Even though the price has increased a few euro and the buffet table is not as lavish as it used to be it is still just about the best value in Rome which is why , most days, the majority of people...

Four star service and location, three star food, given the steep prices. We received a warm welcome and the waiting staff were very friendly and the service prompt. The menu looked great but as self-confessed foodies, the dishes seemed rather bland and disappointing for the price. The general feel was that the place had more style than substance, and there...

Our hotel recommended the reataurant. They were right to do so. The food was fantastic, and the staff were excellent. Our waiter was happy to recommend sensibly priced wines to us, and the whole place has a great atmosphere.
