    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

    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

    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.

    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

    "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

    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)

    We ended up ordering a few antipasti and six primi split amongst the three of us. Each pasta dish was divided into three beautiful servings. 3-4 bites of each. We could have continued this all night

    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.

    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

    Simply a divine dinning experience. Pig Foot "Milanese," Beef Cheek Ravioli, Goose Liver Ravioli and sooooo much more. Why I love Babbo and why all men should be like Batali: http://wp.me/p1IEAz-1

    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.

    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.

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

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

    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

    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.

    One of my favorite bar eating places. Mario’s food is just so good I still taste it a month afterwards. And he is a very funny guy. -Thierry Rautureau, Top Chef

    Mario Batali forever changed the Italian dining scene with his legendary spin on authentic Italian cuisine when he opened Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca in New York, NY. Find more tips at FN Local. Read more

    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.

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

    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!

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

    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

    A block from Washington Square Park, Mario Batali's upscale Italian restaurant is superb. We recommend the pasta tasting menu and the beef cheek ravioli!

    You can't go wrong with the simple & divine menu that changes nightly. If the olive oil sorbet is offered, be sure to try it! - Amanda / Marketing Dept.

    Congratulations, you made it in to one of the best Italian spots in the city. I love the Pappardelle Bolognese and tend to skip the Lamb's brain. Love you Mario!

    Follow them on Twitter to see reservation cancellations. They usually put how many they can seat at a table and for what time then encourage walk-ins at the bar.

    Chef Batali's restaurant lives up to his reputation for great Italian food. After eating, take a walk around Washington Square Park or West Village!

    If you're there the few weeks out of the year that they have their special $15 greenmarket strawberries that grow in the dark gelato, get it. And pay the extra $15 for the 25 year old balsamic drizzl

    The bucatini was outstanding as was the oxtail gnocchi. But don't leave without trying the head cheese. Don't ask just consume :)

    Grilled Octopus (antipasti) and Semifreddo (dolci) are musts. DO NOT order Black Spaghetti, but people rave about the pastas (can try their $80 pasta tasting menu). Very packed so expect noisy meal

    Do one of the tasting menus...it's similar in price and completely worth it. Did the pasta tasting menu with wine and it was to die for.

    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.

    Miles out of my price range. It was damn good. Fancy dining, fancy people. Best in the area, if cost isn't a big deal for you.

    Beef cheek ravioli: the cooked-until-tender cheeks are mashed delicately into a sinfully delicious, near heavenly substance used as the ravioli filling.
