“Not a cookie cutter Italian eatery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2012

There were no precooked canned food served here. You can't just go to the next town to find the clone of this place on the side of the highway. It is its own person so to speak, unique and good.

You can go a lot of Italian places and not get the quality of food, the amount of flavor or the large portions served at this establishment. And for those of us who watch the price we pay for eating out, I can't name a better value. I recommend you give Babbo's a try at least once.

The decor is both old-world and contemporary. The menu is in chalk on the wall. You also get a one sided laminated menu. There is not a big variety of items, but what you order will be well prepared and very flavorful. It's not big city fancy but it is big city good without being big city expensive.

Of the ten or so times my wife and I have eaten there, I have only had one night that I felt that the service was poor. But not once were we disappointed with the food.

“Nice Midpriced Italian in the Suburbs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2011

Met friends for a pre-Christmas get-together...Babbo's is a nice, mid-priced spaghetti and pasta restaurant located amidst the clamor of shopping in Chesterfield Valley. The meals are reasonably priced and the menu is fairly limited but the food is excellent. The restaurant itself is a nice bit of Italy tucked away in a strip-shopping area off the freeway, but it is one of the few non-chain restaurants in this area. If you're in the area, would definitely stop by and get a salad and a pasta. Well worth the trip.
