Babbo Grande

Babbo Grande

Hidden gem- never went here when it was the French branded place... Always thought it was too basic (just crepes didn't appeal to me) - when it changed names, it still didn't seem to appealing - babbo grande sounded a bit clownish. But hey, when I saw the $5 weekday breakfast and lunch and dinner options, I thought maybe I should give it a shot. Well one weekend came around and a friend said it was good, so what the heck: we were hungry and it was close. Things I love: 1. It's big! We've been twice and no wait to be seated. 2. Great outdoor patios, side patio especially quiet. 3. Bring your dog to the outdoor seating area! 4. Fast fast very friendly service 5. Delish full breakfast for $7 ! Only negative and doesn't warrant a star reduction: iced tea is not fresh brewed and has that off taste when it comes from the soda fountain - ick. Overall the best breakfast spot in Hillcrest on an overall basis. The Mission is close, but not nearly as comfortable and longer waits. Hash House is good but very long waits and service has deteriorated (see separate review). We've been twice and we'll be back frequently. Please though, better iced tea. That is all.

Giovanni's Restaurant

I was shocked to read the previous review from 2009 of the guy who says this is not a good place... I feel bad for his unfortunate experience but I was logging on to express how thankful we are for this restaurant being here in this neighborhood. We have lived on Mt Abbey Ave for 10 years and have eaten at Giovanni's to many times to count! We have NEVER had a BAD meal... maybe a few average ones, but most time the food has been excellent! Service has always been acceptable, but who hasn't ever had an off day! I only wish this guy had not responded with haste to write such a scathing review... there is zero doubt in my mind that the owner would have made it right and he would still be dining there 2 years later! The outcome would have been one of good feelings rather than a nasty attitude. I owned a restaurant 35 years ago in Michigan and clearly remember several occations that unhappy customers let me know and I made it right, ending up with long time happy customers and friends. Oh well, some will, some won't, so what? We love the place! DouglasCHoover
