hello, i have a reservation for both restaurants for tomorrow for my husband's birthday, and i'm trying to choose which place to go.
babbo- we have been about two years ago, but sat in the bar. we live in the village and the 'neighbor' element appeals, although our reservation is at 10 pm (not a deal breaker, but not ideal)
convivio- i have heard good things, reservation is a more tenable 9 pm. going to midtown is a slight drag, and i'm concerned that it will feel stuffy.
main objective is to fill up on amazing pasta in a nice setting. any thoughts? thank you!
