Reviewed 28 July 2014

Babbo is tucked away in a mall right next to a safeway on 67th ave and the loop 101. The grounds of the entire mall are well groomed and looks good from the outside. then you walk inside and your greeted with a modern upscale look with browns and tan colors. So far im impressed and they have an easy 5 star they sat us next to a table with a screaming baby so we asked to moved to a booth and after a few minutes we settled in.
The menu is large but not over whelming and it explains what everything is cuz lets face it we all don't read Italian. Ordered a calzone which was large and well cooked, asparagus penne pasta in a white sauce which had a nice varity of fresh veggies and nice cream sauce and I had the bolognaise which was a touch bitter but had a nice flavor and a lot of meat a good portion for a 280 pound Italian. All of this plus three salads and three sodas came to $50 which I found to be a fair price roughly $11 per entrée. If you down for some good Italian give this place a shot. just keep in mind that they get very busy in the evening so call ahead and make a reservation or prepare to wait. I went Saturday afternoon for lunch and it was half full.

Although there are a few locations in Phoenix, Babbo's looks and feels like a unique neighborhood restaurant. The food and service are excellent, and it is a favorite for our entire family.

Great food and service. Don't pass up the Curry Chicken and Pear Pasta, a winner! I can't not order it, yum.

Very good menu selection. Both dine-in and take out service is prompt and the food is very good. The restaurant can be very crowed and quite noisy. They do have a small outdoor patio facing a parking lot, so just beware that you might be enjoying exhuast fumes with your food. Their bread tends to be doughy, but the garlic hummus spread is very good...if you like garlic, you'll really like this spread.
