Service
 
“Still a bastion of fine Italian dining” , this Village “star” in the Batali-Bastianich firmament continues to “impress” with “phenomenal” pastas and other “exceptional” dishes delivered by a “polished” team in “warm” (if “boisterous” ) carriage house digs; yes, it’s “a pain to get a table” and tabs run “high” , but to most the “always-spot-on” experience is “well worth it.”

I think this place is a chain restaurant, so I was not expecting anything special. I just wanted to try it because I was in the city and trying all of the places that I could find during my stay. This one was unlike any other I had been to. I loved the decor and the staff. It was a really bright winter day when I arrived there. I was cold and really hungry. This place appeared before me and I went in and was delighted at all of the pleasant smells. The staff there was great and they were very accommodating. I had a great table next to the window. The food here was quite delicious. It had such a good taste. I am definitely happy with my choice to eat here.

Babbo is my all time favorite for Italian food in NYC. Food is exceptional. It's pretty much that everything is great and I can't find anything that I don't like about. Their pasta is by far one of the best I've had. The texture, flavor, and combination of ingredients are beyond words can describe. Excellent wine pairing. Very friendly service.

The best the best the best the best Beyond perfection. This is the best restaurant in NY, London, HK, Paris, etc. and I’ve not had as amazing a gastronomical experience since Scott’s in London, which was a 4, if this is a 5. Amazing! So amazing, that I excused myself from the table to come write this... this from me, who hasn’t had the time to write about a restaurant of weeks of travel and food. Extraordinary!!!
