We go to Babbos when we want pasta, and a nice atmosphere (Candles, low-lighting and a calm/quiet place to dine). The food is great (good enough that we almost once used them for catering!), the wait staff is responsive and legitimately helpful. The lasagna is...More

Delicious food and very professional staff. The tuttu mare, bruschetta and Caeser salad are great. The portions are large and we have never been disappointed. There are always multiple specials to choose from as well.

The Tutti mare was very nice. The cesar salad was abundant and fresh. Nice atmosphere. Price not bad at all for what you get. All in all a very good experience.

Took the wife on a date and we were pleasantly surprised with Babbos. I had the field greens salad, very good, and the tutto mare, a delicious seafood dish with a shrimp sauce. Service was great and e will definitely be going back.

We both ate the lasagna. Out of this world. Wonderful dinner after a long day of travel. Easy to find from the Hampton inn at the University.

Babbo's is a great Italian restaurant! All of the entree's are reasonably priced, and quite delicious. The staff is friendly, and treat you like family. I personally love the pizza and lasagna! You can't go wrong by going here.
