Salem
About the restaurant
Welcome to your friend neighborhood bar and sandwich shop. Tucked away on Lafayette Park, just a block from the downtown and seaport neighborhoods of Salem, MA, The Babe is the perfect place to rendezvous after work for a cocktail, grab a bite with friends, or get together for a late night celebration. We take pride in our scratch kitchen with a menu inspired by Northeast sandwich culture and cuisine; touching on fan favorites from Philly to NY, and of course, Boston! Our menu includes specialties like house-ground cheese burgers, loaded Italian subs with freshly sliced salumi, crispy and cheesy mozzarella pockets, crispy wings, and more. The dining room and bar have a casual but intimate feel with high ceilings, updated vintage architectural features, and warm deco-lighting. The Babe also features live performances several nights a week as well as a cozy backyard patio in the warm weather season. Parties larger than 10 guests should contact the restaurant directly for booking

Loved it here! Great food, lovely patio out back ... a hidden gem. Seems like it would be fun for families or a night out with a group. We had two couples and enjoyed a relaxing meal with time to chit chat and kind service.

Dorchester
About the restaurant
“I wanted to do a place with good Italian comfort food. The simplicity of it, the freshness of it, the quality of ingredients that you get to work with.” They specialize in that quintessential Italian comfort food – pizza. “I think it’s great that the city of Boston is turning around and starting to become known for pizza like the other big cities in the country,” he said. “It is such a simple food but it all comes down to the quality of ingredients.” It’s all done out of an open kitchen where the star of the show is Molinari’s wood burning oven.

My second visit; No complaints!! Everything was great on both visits, good food, good service, and good atmosphere. On my first visit I met one of the owners (the wife, sorry I don't know her name), and on the second visit a small encounter with the husband, they are both very gentle. I do recommend!!
