Babbo pasta question

CiaoCane | Jun 23, 2008 08:53 AM

I am dining at Babbo next week and want to try some new pastas. I love the Pappardelle Bolognese and Linguini with Clams and usually end up ordering one of those. I have tried most of the pastas on the menu with the exception of the Black Spaghetti with Rock Shrimp and the Spaghettini with Lobster & chives, which have always been tempting but I don't believe I have seen any comment on them. Has anyone tried these?

Also, since I have not been to Babbo for some months, is the Boar Ragu still on the menu? Are there any summer seasonal pasta additions? The online menu is from 10/07.

Lastly, as one of my all time favorite pastas is Babbo's Linguini with Clams, Pancetta and Chilies, does anywhere else make a good or better version of this? Esca? Insieme? (I know Peasant's is very good, but no pork or chilies)
