We went here looking for a good pizza. We did not find it! This is a small Italian place & I was not impressed with the waitress. The Pizza was very salty & I had never tasted pepperoni that was this salty. They also chopped up all of the toppings into tiny pieces. The crust was OK. The people around... More

They have a big & varied menu. Always check to see if they have run out of some items when they are busy. Lasagna seems to run out the most. Dishes are served hot making the meal more enjoyable. The spinach & fresh tomatoes with a Gorgonzola cream sauce over fettuccine is simply delicious & very rich. Their homemade focaccia... More

Service is great food is fair Not my favorite place for Italian food. Tried spaghetti and meatballs; portabella mushroom and Italian sausage with peppers sauce is a little on the acid side

Met for an early lunch to be the crowd, which we did, except the service was not very good. There were only two tables seated and it too forever to get our food.

On a Monday or Tuesday, great lunch spaghetti special. A large bowl of spaghetti with 2 meatballs ...and while you wait, a plate of warm bread and dipping sauce. Great food, friendly staff, good atmosphere, and great price!

By far my favorite Italian restaurant! Great food, fantastic service, and fun atmosphere which amounts to a sensational experience! Whether you are going out for business, family fun, or a romantic night,this restaurant will be perfect. The only issue will be deciding which delicious dish to eat and enjoy first. Be sure to try one of their amazing appetizers.

This was a bit nicer than I expected. Bread was great. Appetizers if mozza ball and spinach dip was good. Garlic chicken way too garlicky. Kaley was the star as she was superb as our server. May go again just because of her.

Babbo is extremely popular, but we only waited for about ten minutes for a table. The menu is extensive and servings are huge. Traditional Italian? Not really, but pleasant enough with very friendly wait staff. And, oh so reasonably priced. Firstly, complementary bread with oil and balsamic - yum! Then Alfredo supremo; a special vegetarian dish; and mushroom, pepperoni and... More

We arrived about 5pm on Friday and were seated immediately. Menu has lots of choices so I strongly recommend you go to their website & review the menu prior to your arrival. The server was friendly and answered our questions. My wife had Chicken Limone Pasta and I had Pomodoro Tomato Pasta. Both of them were excellent and portions were... More
