We stopped while driving through. Very cute inside, almost romantic, good parking. We are trying to be vegan for a little bit and they had fantastic options. A fresh mushroom broth and spinach pasta and the marinara. We brought our child and it was fine. With 2 fresh meals our tab wasn't 20$. Unreal!

Unbelievable food for the coin. Babbo's does not take reservations and will not take put you on 'the list' until your entire party has assembled. So, come before 6 or after 8. I personally recommend the before 6. After 8, water is warm, bread and cannolis will be gone. Worst trip ever but I will come back; I just need to manage arrival time.

An acquaintance suggested we try this restaurant and we are glad we did. We stopped in for a late lunch yesterday and were surprised to find the restaurant still about 1/2 full. After trying the food and the great service we understood why. They run a lunch special of 1/2 serving of salad and 1/2 a serving of pasta for $10 (some dishes are a little more). But their version of 1/2 a serving would be a full serving in my opinion. We each had a different salad and dressing and both were excellent as was the Italian bread that was brought to the table with the salads.

For a pasta course my wife opted for the cannelloni and I got the Tutto mare with shrimp, clams, crabmeat, shrimp broth over spaghetti. Both dishes were wonderful tasting and well presented.

The restaurant also has a pretty good and yet affordable wine list and to make it better they have 1/2 price glasses during the lunch hours. We each had a glass of wine both of which were good, Then our server came over with a tasting size of her favorite red on the menu which we tried and admitted it was better than the ones we had ordered.

The staff was friendly and always smiling while they did their work. The restaurant is in a small shopping center in "the valley" as people here in St Louis call the large shopping area near I64/40 highway and the two new outlet malls. The decor is nothing really special but the solid wood tables and chairs and with the Italian accents and music playing you could pretend you were in a small trattoria in Italy. But luckily here everyone speaks English.

This is a great little restaurant that deserves local support but the food is good enough to encourage shopping visitors to give it a try and be pleasantly surprised.

Good bread, great service, great food..and, at a great price.
Small dining area but good for family style dinners without a lot of ambiance.
