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.

We had two families (with younger kids) meeting at Squaw Peak for a mini vacation and wanted to go off-property for dinner. We found Babbo just down the road and called ahead for a table, which was set up when we arrived.

They serve warm bread with dipping sauce right away. The menu is mouth watering, and hard to choose from all the options. The children's menu was expansive as well.. we had an alfredo, an order of meatballs and then a large cheese pizza for kids. The side Caesar was good but served on a tiny plate and would have been better in a larger plate or bowl.

This is a great stop if you are at the Hilton looking for a place to eat.

The parking lot is a nightmare on a busy night but at the right time of day you can get a table immediately and enjoy a delcious dinner. Service was quick. Prices are reasonable.

Will try again when in town! Also has carryout...
