    Reservations are a must at our favorite Mario Batali restaurant. Once you get a table have the Tripe “Alla Parmigiana”, Beef Cheek Ravioli and then ‘Brasato Al Barolo.”

    It seems like beef cheek ravioli is a popular dish here, but I liked the tagliatelle a lot better. Also loved the tripe dish as well as the lamb tongue appetizer. Yum

    The pasta tasting menu was excellent. For a wine or bubbly, ask the sommelier and she will help you make an excellent selection. The service was great!!! If you are in NYC, you must go to Babbo.

    Garganelli with 🍄 marry me! There are 2 tasting menus, one with all pasta 🍝 that has been offered for 20 years and an Italian traditional one just recently added. You must book ahead. WORTH 100%

    A staple of the city, one of the best meals you can have in nyc. Hard to choose what is best, but don’t miss the octopus and lamb tongue appetizers, as well as the fish main dish. A+

    Former American presidents seated at table 3? Check. Beef cheek ravioli with crushed squab liver and black truffles served at table 6? Check. Such is a typical night at Babbo! Read more

    ask the waiters for wine recos. Got a great red for $80 (the wine here is $$). Avoid the squab (super rare and gamey) but go for the beef cheek ravioli. Duck is tasty but pork chop is the real star

    Great for a traditional Italian meal. Burrata is heavenly. Pasta can be overcooked. The upstairs area has great light, ask for a table there.

    Batali and Bastianich's flagship Italian restaurant still commands one of the busiest dining rooms in the city. Reservations are a must, but worth it for the Beef Cheek Ravioli and Roasted Duck.

    "Tough to get a spot, but you can occasionally grab a seat at the bar without a reservation and enjoy a bowl of chianti-stained pappardelle with wild boar ragu or fennel-dusted sweetbreads." Read more

    The tripe is unreal, better than they make it in Italy (spicy though for most people, so make sure you got some beer on the side). Goose liver ravioli is also a must

    Was looking forward to eating here... Service was great, food was ok, loved the music! Scarpetta's is far superior tho, go there! (Pictured is the mint love letters... Nothing too spectacular)

    Batali's OG flagship continues to be great for special occasions. You can ask your server to portion and course out shared dishes and even recommend pairings for each.

    The best restaurant in NYC. Period. You can order anything and prepare yourself to be amazed. My fave: beef cheek ravioli.

    If you choose to dine a la carte, try the spaghettini served with a one pound lobster ($28) or spring for the massive bowl of deconstructed osso bucco for two ($75). Read more

    The food was amazing but the staff, especially the ones to check you in and take your coats, are not that friendly. They seem to think that if the food is amazing the service can come second.

    Great Italian menu, make sure to ask for a sommelier for the perfect wine pairings and make a reservation in advance. Try the Squid Ink Pasta dish.

    The Tasting Menu is my move and it never disappoints. Another good move is to go for lunch. Same menu and a great place for business meetings.

    Black spaghetti with shrimp is my favorite. Not a fan of the beef cheek ravioli, but that's probably because I don't like the liver taste if the sauce. Olive oil cake was perfect.

    Some of the best Italian in NYC, well deserving of its Michelin Star. The goat cheese ravioli, bucatini and the fettuccine were phenomenal. The bucatini is a must get!

    Beef carpaccio and Octopus to start, beef cheek ravioli and sweetbreads for the entree. All incredible!

    Restaurant played nirvana, the Beatles, foo fighters and the XX to enjoy while eating their gourmet 7 course pasta tasting menu, each paired with wine. Heaven.

    I don't necessarily think all Mario Batali's restaurants serve the best food but you cannot go wrong with this location. Definitely try beef cheek ravioli though

    Must try 「Pappardelle with White Truffles and Parmigiano」, the pasta itself is outstanding with or without white truffle!

    This is a great Italian, the more traditional setting adds to the experience. Would recommend the sea bass and the steak.

    Absolutely must try the infamous Beef Cheek Ravioli- a creamy, beef-stew like filling inside smooth ravioli shells…So good, it’s been rumored to change a few Vegan’s perspectives

    Mario Battali is a great Italian chef, but he loves American prosciutto. Babbo serves prosciutto from La Quercia, a producer based in Iowa. Try cooking with the meat with JUST MARRIED AND COOKING. Read more

    Must visit spot, although it's impossible to get a res -- you have to call at 10am exactly one month out from the day you want to go, and reservations are gone within minutes.
