Worth waiting for -- business is brisk but the garlic bread and oil dip and two huge meatballs atop a heaping pile of pasta in rich tomato sauce --- all for $6.99 -- a real value.

We loved this spot for dinner. A really wide selection on the menu, but I chose the steak/lime salad. It was soooo good! The smaller size was plenty for dinner. My daughter had the calzone -- could only finish about half, but she said it was tasty. The waitress was amazing and got us out of there efficiently, not a... More

The food was outstanding - especially the chicken with beets and brussel sprouts. Service was quick, friendly, and very attentive, and it was very reasonably priced. Great menu for both kids and adults. Would definitely go back to this restaurant.

We visit Phoenix frequently and this is our favorite place for take out pizza. Have also eaten in and the service is very good. Modern take on traditional Italian pasta dishes, good service and tasty food.

Fresh tasting and fast service. A nice combination of entrees. Nice atmosphere. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Happy to make some changes to your order if needed, or just preference. I like to go off hours though, as they can be quite busy.

Left most of the appetizer. Ate a slice of pizza (but even the kids didn't want to take the remainder home). I had some of the alfredo. The food isn't terrible, but it's also not great. The service, likewise, was just OK. Would love to love this place--it's close and comfortable. But there are so many better choices available in... More

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.

Thank Sarah S
