10BEST Says

Italian: Tucked away on Waverly Place in a former coach house, Babbo offers up Italian food in its purest form. Known for its classic simplicity both in decor and menu selections, this establishment provides diners with exotically named, sumptuous pastas and meats flavored to perfection by celebrity chef Mario Batali. But it's not just food that will have you coming back time and time again. The extensive Italian-focused wine list is the perfect complement to whatever food choice tickles your fancy. Add in lovely bi-level setting and a skylight that provides connoisseurs with the perfect backdrop to a truly unique meal, and you've got yourself a winning combination.

Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants: Located in a fairly magical former coach house on a quiet block of Waverly Place, Babbo reinvented the venerable New York City Italian restaurant scene when it opened in 1998. And, you know what? It's still got it: helmed by culinary dream team Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich, Babbo has award-winning cuisine, an A-list clientele (a bibulous Bill Clinton once famously paid a visit) and, with eight-course tasting menus starting at $80, expense-account worthy pricing. But Molto Mario delivers, serving succulent Southern Italian fare like spicy lamb sausage with mint and sweet pea puree, and popular pastas like Chianti-stained pappardelle with wild boar ragu.


Insider Tips

Local Expert Says:

Italian: "Reservations recommended, but try your luck at the bar without one."

Best for Italian Because: Chef Mario Batali has made a name for himself outside of the kitchen, but that wouldn't have been possible without Babbo.

Local Expert Says:

Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants: "One of Babbo's many claims to fame is developing a modern American appetite for offal. Get hip to the nose-to-tail movement in dishes like calf's brain Franchobolli and arugula-topped pig's foot Milanese."

Best for Greenwich Village's Best Restaurants Because: One of the city's hottest tables for nearly two decades, Babbo remains the freshest face of Italian fine dining in New York and beyond.
