My grandparents, parents, siblings, and I made lunch reservations here in March, 2017. Although the food was good, the service was terrible. Our waiter was incredibly rude, which ruined the whole experience. He could not answer our questions about the wine list, and when we tried to order a few appetizers to share he snapped, "This is not a restaurant... More

All three courses were disappointing. The beef tongue didn't have much taste, while the beef cheek ravioli was decent. We had both an appetizer and dessert and neither were better than any restaurant in any city. $175 for dinner with only a few drinks and I could get a better meal anywhere. Service was great

Wait staff friendly and dinner and drinks were fabulous. Octopus usually not good in Italian restaurants was amazing. Gnocchi were light & flavorful. The pasta with truffles was "primo"

Dined here last year for a special occasion date with the boyfriend. Full disclosure: we really enjoyed the wine list and partook in quite a bit of it. So, the evening is a bit hazy in hindsight, but I do remember having a thoroughly enjoyable experience. We had a quiet, cozy table in the corner and elected to go with... More

As one who owns Mr. Batali's cookbook, I was so excited to try his restaurant. I was disappointed in our dinner at his restaurant tonight. The service was good, but unfortunately the whole experience was unsatisfying. I would not return.

Hostess will give your name to the bartender and you can wine and dine elbow to elbow with locals and visitors. Can't go wrong with any pasta or veal chop. Also get a bottle or carafe and either will be good. You may catch Gere or some other celeb being rushed upstairs. Always been one of my faves

We were so looking forward to having lunch at Babbo. I had watched its celebrity chef cooking on TV and liked what I saw. We were seated on the first floor. It was dark and small, like an old small townhouse. I was expecting a packed house due to its reputation. But on a weekday lunch, it was not busy.... More

Service was overly attentive, so much so that we felt that we were being rushed to get out of there as fast as possible. Food was good but not excellent. Instead of being a special experience it was just another expensive restaurant.

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighbourhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighbourhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighbourhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
