Monday and Tuesday is the $6.99 special. It comes with two large meatballs that are great. You need to get there early during the winter(snowbirds) or plan on a 30 minute wait. They also have half price happy hour food that will make a meal for a good price. We have been going here for 4-5 years when in town... More

This Italian Restaurant is hands down the very best, authentic Italian food I have ever eaten. Our group of nine people arrived some time around noon last Sunday (Mar. 19, 2017) and was seated right away. Drinks were served as ordered and in good time we were able to place our order. No one in our group had been to... More

We came here for dinner - my first time but others had been before. There is a wide variety of pasta, pizza and sandwich options. I was going to have the lasagna but it takes 30 minutes. They say it is worth the wait but we were not able to do so. I had the pasta primivera instead which was... More

This is an American Italian restaurant, much like Olive Garden, but better. Prices are decent and they offer to go.

I was taken aback by the number and variety of items on the menu. Appetizers, pasta plates, salad dishes, pizza, call ones and more. Prices are moderate. The lunch menu is the same as the dinner menu. The bread and the dipping mixture (balsamic vinegar and oil) are delicious. We just found this place less than a week ago and... More

Horrible service partly due to having a trainee server with no good mentoring. One food order was for Fettuccine Alfredo. Not edible. A four cheese pizza was thought to be a safe choice. It was, but rather tasteless.The beer was cold but very slow to be served. Had to go to the bar ourselves for a refill.

Had dinner with friends from Canada. Found Babbo's on line and in the vicinity of where we planned to meet. It was the perfect choice with a diverse menu, wonderful bread and a patient staff who treated our first visit as if we had been visiting for a long time. Restaurant was clean, well lighted, divided into table and booth... More

Husband said he had heard about this place and I agreed to try it with him. I wasn't in the mood for Italian nor pizza but when I looked at the large menu I knew I had to try something I hadn't had before. Christy was very helpful and polite while waiting on us. She brought us the warm focaccia... More

Always a great place for dinner. Favorites are the Great White Buffalo and Martini pastas. Staff is friendly and the fireplace on the patio is cozy.

Had a hankering for our favorite Italian eatery, but linecips have been huge. We saw that we could place an online order for pickup so we opted for that. Seamless system for ordering, it actually took us longer to choose than it did for them to prepare it. The orders for takeout reflect the same size as those served in... More
