30th Birthday at Babbo - Need suggestions

Derek | Dec 9, 2005 09:35 AM

Hi Folks,

Heading to Babbo for my 30th b-day with 6 friends this Sunday. We've settled on the pasta tasting menu.

We're all pretty voracious eaters. What else DO WE NEED to order ala carte to have the best of the place without spending a ton of cash. Can we ask for just one order of certain dishes (tongue for example) and share them amongst the table, each person getting 1 or 2 bites? Will Babbo get upset?

Is tipping 16-18% acceptable? Is %20 now the norm?

Do we need to tip the somelier in addition?

Thanks for the help folks.
