Babbo Restaurant - Italian flair in Mayfair, London

Cheval Phoenix House is near to Babbo Italian Restaurant in Mayfair

In the centre of Mayfair is an Italian restaurant which offers a homely taste of Italy in impressively elegant surroundings. Meaning ‘Daddy’ in Italian, Babbo’s concept is to provide a family friendly, traditional restaurant with a warm welcome and the most authentic home-cooked Italian food. 

Focaccia is more of a gastro-event than humble bread; porcini risotto is an achingly savoury concoction of aged rice & painstakingly layered stock; melting suckling pig is braised in olive oil; & Nonna’s lasagne is a crusty-topped, umami-loaded revelation.  

The restaurant positively glows with warmth, encouraging the diner to relax and unwind from the first step through the door. Walls are painted yellow - the colour of a Tuscan sunset, chandeliers are hung low and a dark wood bar curves out from a corner of the room. Although it’s owned by a football lawyer (with Premiership clientele to match), Babbo is homely rather than glamorous, with bare brick walls, family photos & a rustic staircase.

Unique in its stubborn insistence on high quality, homely food cooked with love, Babbo’s menu reflects traditional Italian dining while maintaining a high level of quality and presentation. A veritable battalion of animated staff seem mismatched to such a compact space, although their advice is invaluable when navigating the comprehensively costly wine list.

Babbo has a private room for 12 people. Reservations can be made by phone, 020 3641 9303,  through reservations@babborestaurant.co.uk, or in their website.
