It Was 10 Years Since Last Visit, Still Very Good

From the moment you enter the restaurant you are greeted and the excellent service begins. The room has the feel of an intimate club. Food for the most part was very good, but my rabbit was a little dry. My friends lamb was perfect and the chicken liver starter was perfect. A very good extensive... read more

Its solid fare in terms of food, and the restaurant has a very barrister/lawyer corporate vibe. If you are ok with this, then its a good place for a business lunch. I like the food - can be on the rich side, and the service can be great or offhand - sometimes hard to predict. Its for that I give... More

From the moment you arrive, you will be cared for by attentive professional staff who all take responsibility for your well being. No sections in this bistro where you can die waiting for your waiter. Every five minutes a staff member will check if you need anything in a subtle walk past. Breakfasts are to die for. The crab omelette... More

We chose Bambini because it was open at 7am and it did not disappoint us! I had the best omelette ever (the frittatina with prosciutto and goat's cheese) - simply sensational! The service was also exceptional.

I visited Bambini after work with my husband for a few drinks and something to eat. We had the arancini and meats board. The Jamon's were great and we loved the Pate considering we dont usually eat it. Great drinks, wine was ok, will return

The dark panelled room with white linen has a wonderful contemporary Europen buzz. This vibe is matched by perfect service and a contemporary menu with old fashioned Europen notes. There is no European pastiche here this is cooking at its best and the service is so perfect it could be theatre. The experience is simply perfect.

My daughter and I had a most wonderful lunch today. The food was magnificent as was the elegant atmosphere but what I most appreciated was the attentive yet discrete service from well trained waiters. There are not many restaurants in Sydney that can boast this type of service.

Had an omelet and a double black. Both were excellent. Service was good. Staff was busy preparing for the day, but still kept close attention to the tables. Will be back in Sydney in October and will go to Bambini again.

This is a great place for Italian food. There is a more formal restaurant but you can also eat in the bar which is very lively. If you happen to be staying in the Sheraton on the Park, it is just a short stroll.

Popped in quite early for lunch with a friend and sat outside, which was very pleasant apart from the odd blast of exhaust from a passing bus. We both had the pappardelle with ragu with a glass of French rose, followed by sorbet. All were delicious. The service was attentive at first but as the restaurant filled up, the waiter... More
