Babbo - Dinner Last Night, No Reservations

sim0ne | Apr 23, 2008 08:23 AM

Two of us went for dinner ~6:15. We were seated immediately, 2 of the 6 bar tables were available. Though the bar area became very crowded, we never felt oppressed or bothered, and the noise level never became a problem. We ordered the tasting menu with the wine pairing. All courses were delicious but the papardelle with morels and butter really stood out, as well as the duck ravioli. Service was efficient, not excellent, but the casual atmosphere was refreshing (quite a few patrons wearing jeans) and the entire staff very friendly and we never felt rushed. We thought the prices were very reasonable (total with tip was ~$330), and look forward to dining there again.
