While NYC has many fine restaurants, this one continues to be our favorite. We have never been disappointed during any of our numerous visits. The food is second to none, the service is friendly and highly professional, the wine list is the best anywhere. The kitchen consistently puts out the best sweetbreads, mint love letters (ravioli with spicy lamb sausage),... More

This was our third visit to Babbo. We had dinner twice in 2014, while visiting New York for tourism. We made a dinner reservation after two years. Here are my comments: We were assigned a table by a wall, near the main entrance, which was not the best area. The service and the quality of the food did not meet... More

My wife and I had a 5:30 reservation on Sunday evening. The waiter rushed our dinner telling us that he had customers waiting for the table. We spent over $260 for dinner and drinks. We came form New Jersey for a special evening we will never visit this restaurant again. I managed a high end restaurant in New Jersey. I... More

Great Italian restaurant. Because reviewers complained about loud music, we asked for upstairs seating, but that problem must have been fixed, low music levels, people drowned out any music. We both had fish, wonderfully prepared, we asked the sommelier to suggest a good Rhone white, it was wonderful and well priced. We would go back anytime we are in the... More

Incredibly crowded, get a reservation or you'll be standing waiting for an opening at the bar. We like Mario and were looking forward to trying Babbo, unfortunately there were great dishes and some misses; guess you have to go a number of times to experiment and find your favorites: Grilled Octopus: outstanding, the best we've had Mozzarella di Bufalo: bland...

Exquisite Italian restaurant! Don't mind if it takes long for you to be seated, the Babbo experience starts at the counter, with a drink. Once you are seated, get ready for spectacular dishes!

We had an amazing time here for my husband's birthday! Every course of the pasta tasting menu was perfect and the bottle of wine that the Somm recommended was absolutely perfect!

Three of us ate recently at Babbo on Waverly Place in New York City. It is an Italian cuisine restaurant, and the service there is friendly and efficient. More importantly, the food is excellent -- including very much the very standard and traditional dishes, such as Bolognese dishes. Our meals included Wild Boar Ragu over pasta (two different types selected)... More

The menu is very diverse with lamb's tongue, sweetbreads, etc. I ordered grilled octopus which was excellent and perfectly cooked. The butternut squash dish was also excellent, as was the Hazelnut cake with hazelnut sorbet for dessert. Pasta dish was good but not my favorite. Extensive wine list. Two tasting menus offered. Portions were ample and service excellent.

Babbo is owned by Mario Battalgia. The menu is filled with wonderful dishes from different areas of Italy with an amazing Italian wine list. Pastas are so spectacular, it's hard to decide on 1 or 2. fortunately Babbo offers a Pasta tasting menu with 5 or 6 different pastas - all of which are incredible. This is not a place... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
