    Me and Wifey are thinking about going to Babbo for a special dinner. Anyone here have an opinion about the place?

    I loved it. The room is warm and inviting, the food is spectacular and the service is excellent, albeit mildly pretentious (they "prime" the wine glasses by pouring a little in, swirling it around and pouring it out - give me a break).

    Isn't Babbo a detergent that was popular in the 1960's? [​IMG]

    An absolutely wonderful restaurant. If I were looking for a romantic Italian with my wife, I would go instead to L'Impero.

    Thanks, everyone. We're booked, and looking forward to it.

    About a year ago Babbo sued a local Austin gelateria, also named Babbo. The gelateria held a contest to pick a new name -- while giving away copious amounts of gelato gratis -- and settled on Teo's.
