We went back to Babbo after our first visit in the Spring during our Fall visit to Phoenix. When we asked the kids where they wanted to go for Dinner, Babbo was top of the list. Service = great, Food = excellent. Will visit the next time we are in town.

Wanted to like this local Italian restaurant but it falls short. Service was short and unprofessional. "Ok, cool, ya ya ya ya, Alright" Waitress slammed down bread and oil, right in front of me as she rushed over to another table. Free bread at beginning of meal was way over salted. Ordered 2 pasta dishes which were not memorable. upon... More

The food here is very tasty and fresh. We have eaten here a couple of times. They also have some great specials and you can sign up for their emails. We really enjoyed our meal.

My boyfriend and I just had another outstanding meal at one of our favorite Italian restaurants. I ordered my favorite parmesan chicken pasta and he ordered is favorite calzone (minus ricotta and double mozzarella with sausage and mushrooms). From the bread and olive oil with balsamic vinegar to the mista salad and then the outstanding entrees, Babbo's impressed us again.... More

Stopped here for lunch after an appointment at Associated Retinal Specialist. Local family owned eatery. Very nice Italian food. I had lunch special with Caesar salad and mushroom and asparagus pasta. Very tasty and the complimentary bread was fantastic. Lunch for about $10, I felt very high value for price. Wait staff very friendly and efficient. Would definitely eat here... More

Four couples decided to celebrate two birthdays. Waiter was excellent. Food slow but served hot. However that was the best part. Kitchen mixed up one order, 3 meals were well under .seasoned to be almost tasteless. Mac and Cheese was the highlight. We will not return.

My husband and I were looking forward to a just-the-two-of-us dinner. I ordered a large Steak-n-Blue salad with No Dressing, which was delivered by our friendly waiter along with my husband's spaghetti dinner. The salad had dressing on it. The waiter promised to get it fixed right away, leaving us with an unpleasant choice -- should my husband let his... More

Very good, authentic Italian. The bread was yummy. The chicken Parmesan was delicious. Good service, semi-casual atmosphere. Would recommend.
