Zagat - London Restaurants 2013

"Bella cucina, bella figura, bello tutto. At Babbo, where talented chef Carlo Scotto has just picked up the baton, they understand it's not just about the creamiest burrata, the silkiest tagliolini, the pinkiest veal - but the whole picture. Nowhere is the leather softer, the chandeliers twinklier, or the photos on the wall more Cinecitta. Wine glasses chink, conversation sparkles. Enchanting."
Tatler Restaurant Guide 2013
"With an elegant yet warm and fairly traditional dining room - including family framed pictures and a wooden staircase - Babbo has been winning over diners of Mayfair since it launched in 2009. There is a beef chick that is so tender that it falls apart the second it's touched. There is also a wonderful wine list, full of vintage treasures. There is no getting away from the all-consuming greed-inducing capabilities of the burrata - worth visiting for alone."
Mayfair Magazine, May 2013
"My beef cheek served in a red wine sauce was a real humdinger of a dish. The meat was deep and gamey to taste and tender as anything falling into beautifully moist chunks at the prod of a fork"
Tim Barber, City AM
"The snapper ravioli with a mascarpone sauce was absolutely fabulous. The filling was incredibly fishy and luxurious; the sauce was unobtrusive but delicious"
The Sunday Telegraph Online
"Cosy, intimate and a guaranteed first date favourite, the atmosphere owes as much to the gentle décor (glistening chandeliers and cream leather banquettes) as it does to the attentions of a first-rate manager"
