“Really good Italian food in Nelson”
Review of Babagatto

On a recent 'girls' week-end in Nelson we really wanted Italian food but a 'google' didn't reveal much. Luckily after our E Bike Hire trip, we walked past Babagatto and made a quick decision to return that night.
We did not regret that spontaneity. All six of us were thrilled with our meals, the relaxed ambiance and the recommendations of matching Italian wine (do ask for these!). Excellent helpful waitress.
These guys are the real deal! I recommend booking as it was pretty tight on a Saturday night.

Great food, great service. Had a wonderful time chatting with the waiter who made wonderful recommendations on menu choices. My wife had the ravioli in better and sage and I had the gnocchi in a gorgonzola sauce while our friends had a spaghetti in Bolognese sauce and her husband had the potato soup and a salad.

We ate for 3 nights at this superb authentic Italian restaurant. The owners & saff made us feel extremely welcome offering to taste the wine before ordering. Each meal we ordered had magnificent flavours and discussed with us so that we could make the perfect choice. The service was enjoyably attentive and food came very quickly, which we appreciated.

The lasagna was super good! Would definitely recommend. Service was fast and the waiter made the experience even better.

We both thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Babagatto. I had wonderful Gnocci with gorgonzola sauce and my husband had very nice Ravioli. The restaurant was busy but not noisy at all, and the atmosphere was cozy - which was very pleasant and unlike most other Nelson restaurants.
