Italian
“Babbo”, meaning Daddy in Italian, is inspired by family and rooted in tradition. Our food and wine has been carefully sourced from all of the diverse Italian regions. Home-made bread and pasta compliments various Italian dishes with a true authentic taste of Italy. Babbo’s signature dish, the Lasagna al Ragout of Angus Aberdeen is born from a secret family recipe of over 100 years, passed down through generations with love and respect. Babbo is cosy but quirky with unique artwork inspired by family. Your restaurant, a home from home, is a place to tell stories and create new memories with friends and family. Upstairs, Babbo has a unique private dining area for special occasions or discussions over a bottle of Italian wine. Babbo is located on 39 Albemarle street, W1S 4JQ. Reservations can be made on 020 3941 8641.

We enjoyed the Babbo brunch on Saturday and really enjoyed the Italian brunch style of wonderful dishes being served by attentive staff. They were very accommodating to our vegetarian son and we had a wonderful time celebrating our daughter's 10th birthday there. Highly recommended!

No what I expected at all... Ambiance was not like photos on Instagram.. Food was normal/Okay.. Tables & the quality of materials (chairs, dishes, cutlery... ) was very ordinary..
Like a cafeteria style place... When you see ££££ sign in google search, You expect something more glamorous & Fancy... It was not a high end restaurant at all!
The car outside was cute!

Good starters. Very small plates of mains- we ordered a pasta dish for everyone and then had to order pizza (it is an appetiser size- 4 to 5 inches) and dessert...our kids are 13 and 8 and we r not big eaters.

The food was great, the service was even better , the manager and the chef came to see us to check if everything was good.
The melanzane and the berry pie are a must have !

Good restaurant, waiters are very forward. Not the best safety measure with no masks on. Great food, didn’t finish our bottle of wine as it wasn’t kept at the table, shouldn’t need to ask how much is left

Amazing food - the arancini is especially amazing, as was the lasagna. My wife had the perfect negroni. We went for lunch on a Monday so it was quiet and calm, just the way we wanted for a nice family lunch out. And yet we happened to run into a friend who was dining there as well! We look forward to visiting again.

We came to your restaurant for my birthday on Friday. The food was absolutely gorgeous, the staff were amazing especially Adriana, nothing was too much trouble for her. The only downside was the restaurant was empty so there was not much atmosphere, but, Adriana did an excellent in keeping us happy. It is no bodies fault the restaurant was empty it’s the world we live in at the moment. We have recommended you to all our friends and family and will be back. The staff made my birthday. They are a true asset to your company. Many many thanks!

Professional, friendly service. Super quality meal (red Mullet dish). Only criticism was table position (in half empty restaurant) right next to service desk/till.

Excellent Italian food, well cooked and very high quality produces. Fine, intimate and classy atmosphere, better for couples than for family or friends celebrations. Expensive but quality must be paid.

Food was very nice - the portion sizing on the main course felt a little small. There was very few people in the restaurant but it was a sunday so i wasnt too surprised. Staff were lovely - I'd go back but at a busier time. I'm never a fan of service charge being included. I'm more likely to tip more if there isn't one.

The service was fantastic. Red prawn starter brilliant but main courses were a let down. Could not taste the truffle on the pasta as it had been kept in a damp place and lost its smell and flavour. The lobster pasta was also lacking in flavour and it would be better without the dried herbs. Wine very overpriced compared to other similar restaurants in London
