One of our favorite dining spots for Italian is Babbo at 16th St & Glendale Rd. in Phoenix. There are others in Surprise, Tempe, Cave Creek, Mesa & at Arrowhead. Atmosphere is friendly, and food is authentic & delicious with a wide variety to select from. They also offer take out. We tried something new, roasted green bean & wild mushrooms with bacon & fettucini with creamy garlic sauce, and the new fire roasted red pepper, onions & wild mushrooms with white wine Alfredo sauce. Each priced at $10.95. It's all good, but one catch. Bread comes to the table before the meal so you have to be careful. It's so fresh, warm and delicious you'll eat it all and not leave room for your entrée.
