Babbo Italian Eatery is back in business at 6855 N. 16th St.

The restaurant reopened on Feb. 10 after having closed for several months due to a fire that caused extensive damage to the building. The fire was ignited outside the building in the utility area, then caught the gas meter and the entire building caught fire. The roof and one side of the building had to be replaced.
