Tucked away in a secluded part of Mayfair, popular Italian restaurant Babbo has returned to London following a brief hiatus in which it was replaced by a branch of Judy Joo’s Jinjuu. The smart dining room is now decked out in neutral tones, but vibrant murals on the walls help to keep things lively.
From a menu of Italian classics, split into the traditional antipasti, secondi and contorni, you can kick off with the likes of fritto misto and burrata. From the mains, diners can opt for risotto cacio e pepe, or salt-baked whole sea bass, served with steamed spinach. Desserts include tiramisu and mango and passionfruit cheesecake, while the cocktail list features the likes of the Godfather, which blends Scotch, whisky and almond liqueur.
