Peter's Reviews
 
Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich's flagship restaurant, located on Waverly Place in Greenwich Village, opened to great acclaim in 1998 and is as bustling and popular as ever. It offers three-star dining that redefines and reinvents the principles of Italian cuisine for 21st century America. An epic, landmark wine list, an exciting, quintessentially New York dining room and expert, attentive and cordial service make a table at Babbo one of New York’s prized possessions.

"We had lunch at Babbo last Saturday. My own entree was pretty good, Guinea Hen, and my appetizer was fine too (ravioli with black truffles). My wife's dishes, though, were quite disappointing. Her appetizer was too small to be a real Buffalo Mozzarella (my wife regularly goes to Northern Italy and has some each time). Her entree, linguine with clams, was tasteless and without any sauce. Moreover, the wine list by the glass is very expensive, with an average price of more than 20 $. I had to settle for the cheapest one (at 16 $!), a Dolcetto d'Aba that was mediocre (too much acidity). Overall, we were not really impressed by this experience."

The Ivy Inn restaurant features locally-inspired seasonal American cuisine. Located in an historic house built originally in late 1700"s. Conveniently located about a mile west of the University of Virginia. Small family business that loves to support our incredible local farmers.

"The setting is very cozy and intimate. It gives the guests a warm feeling. The food is quite good. I had the duck breast and it was both well cooked and nicely garnished. The Profiterolles for dessert were excellent. Only drawback: the service that is too slow although attentive and personal. The wines by the glass could also be a bit more generous."
