Last weekend I went back to one of my favourite Italian restaurants in London and was once more not disappointed. Babbo (which means "daddy" in Italian) on Albermale Street in Mayfair (http://www.babborestaurant.co.uk/) does delicious authentic Italian food. The menu features many Italian classics such as calamari fritti, prosciutto San Daniele with funghi porcini, lasagna (according to a more than 100 year old family recipe), gnocchi, Ossobuco alla Milanese (which, according to my mother, was one of the best she ever tasted), quite a few dishes with the trendy burrata cheese (a tastier version of mozzarella from Puglia) and great ice creams and an amazing tiramisu. The interior is very cosy - bistro style with beautiful chandeliers and a great bar - and the service is very friendly. Just a great place!
