I do whatever I can to ensure I am in the vicinity for a meal here - it's usually breakfast and I'm never disappointed. I love the atmosphere and would dearly love it to be my local eatery.

Staying down the road at the Sheraton I wanted to eat out but as a single female not too far away. At my single table I was made to feel very comfortable and my dinner was lovely as always. Highly recommended.

This place has the best atmosphere and there is no better place to go to and enjoy a fine Italian meal complimented by a good bottle of red than here - especially when it is a bit chilly outside.

I have only been to the Bambini Trust restaurant at night, so the dark paneled room with white linen, with a moody setting is the perfect place for an intimate dinner for either a couple or small group of friends. Not sure if this set-up would work for breakfast or dinner, however spectacular for dinner. The service is wonderful. Somelier... More

There’s something about a crisp linen table cloth that just makes a lunch, that and a nice Riesling and good food so here we are at Bambini Trust (BT). I always enjoy BT, it’s cramped but not uncomfortable. My daughter and I have been enjoying lunch here for 15 years, when she was five, and it never disappoints. My daughter... 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.

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.
