Babbo's has a great deal on spaghetti and meatballs on Mondays and Tuesdays. It is excellent with the spaghetti served with two big meatballs. You also get garlic breadsticks with oil and balsam vinegar which also are very good. We go with friends at least twice a month.

I visited this restaurant and loved it! Their dishes are awesome I particularly love the complimentary bread! My husband loves the pasta bolognese, and their steak with tequila, lime dressing is out of this world.

Lunch was good for salads... service is friendly but very slow. Dinner was delicious but once again the service was very slow. Do not go there with small children it just takes way too long!

The free bread they serve is scrumptious! We've visited this restaurant a few times over the years & it's a fave spot. We like all the entrees we've tried. We especially love the asparagus salad, chicken BBQ pizza, tiramisu, & really, all the pasta entrees. 😊

The food is good and the service is good but sometimes you feel like you are getting the Bums Rush. The new location is nice but like all new places it get full fast for dinner. I think if you go for a little later dinner it may not be as bad but there has always been a line,

It takes 6 people minimum to get a reservation. Collect your friends and call for reservations. Great food. Attentive staff. Always full, but you get your drinks and food quickly. Very extensive menu. GREAT FOOD!

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on a Saturday. We were not disappointed! Next time we are in town we will definitely go back.

Service was efficient, friendly and personable. We were in a rather demanding group of 23, but the staff handled it very well. I enjoyed the pasta Valducci and it was excellent. Although I would have liked a bit more artichoke, it was very enjoyable, and I would order it again. Ambience is basic family-style with nothing to make it feel... More

Fun, lively atmosphere, nice setting. The Mushroom, Asparagus Pasta as well as the Chicken Parmesean were both great. The bread was warm and fresh and the Caesar salad was good. We sat at the bar as there was a long wait. Wine was $5 or $6 during happy hour, what a great deal! Would return if ever in town.

After seeing customers walk out with to go containers we decided to split a meal. Turned out to be a good idea because portions are generous. We ordered the pasta valducci with a small side salad. The pasta dish came out steaming hot! The bread is warm, salad was cold and crisp. Save room for dessert and coffee their tirimisu... More
