I requested veal Parmesan which was not on the menu. Outstanding!! A combination of tomato sauce with some gravy and was some of the best I ever had (and I am picky). Kitchen serves the more expensive restaraut upstairs. Only suggestion for improvement was the salad dressing was so-so. I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant for a great meal!

Bombolini had fantastic service - however the ambiance and food were sorely lacking. The bread served before the meal was dry and stale - and it was served without butter or oil. The fresh pasta noodles were fantastic- however the sauce and meat were not substantial enough to make an impact. The restaurant is old and tired. Overall a very... More

Had a wonderful meal on New Years Eve with friends, service was good and they didn't rush us. They had a lobster bisque as ther special and it was great. Never had a bad meal here.

This was our first time here and we loved every dish that was served. We had the shrimp for an app, the gnocchi, and both the oven-roasted chicken and veal scallopini. Done to perfection. It doesn't seem like you can go wrong here. Greg the server was outstanding. This place is also more casual than Amici's upstairs

Came for lunch with friends. Portion sizes have gotten smaller and you now need to pay extra for the pine salad that use to come with your tortellini . This use to be my favourite thing to order when I came here, this time is was very bland and no where near the quality I remembered.

Bombolini is not ostentatious, but it has always had great food. Same kitchen and food quality as the fancier Amici upstairs, but a little more casual in its ambiance. We recently had a friend in from the east coast and took her to Bombolini, which did not disappoint. She was really impressed. The soups are always superb and my spaghetti... More

We live only a few blocks from this establishment and mistakenly thought that it was expensive with a capital E. And as it turns out, so not true. We just had a lovely meal there with wine, dessert and tip for under $80 (which is just slightly more than we pay when we go to that pizza chain for mediocre/okay... More

Good service, good food and nice wine selection. So a good location for an evening business mtg. Close to downtown and not far from the MTS Centre.
