Great paninis and a good price

I absolutely love Il Bambino's paninis and I would recommend them to anyone. The bread that they use is super tasty and the ingredients have always been fresh. The reasturant its self is a bit small but they have a nice little patio out back for the warmer months to expand the seating a bit... read more

This is a cute little place. They have excellent panini and crostini. Relaxed atmosphere and quick service. I Would definitely recommend this place for a quick bite to eat and if you want a lighter dinner

Excellent Food and service. A fine value. I am tough on ratings. Its hard to get a five star from me so my rating may take this restaurant down a very small part of a notch. The star is lost due to a charming yet not totally comfortable sitting area outside. A few tables are some six to eight inches... More

This small but well laid out restaurant has an amazing cheese & meat platter, Crostini's and panini's that are mouth watering! The Crostini's have a wide variety of different combinations of flavored, such as spec with egg salad & spicy mayo or apricot jam... More

Great panini and brunch. Wines are okay. Love the outdoor space in nicer weather. Only down is if you sit inside you smell like panini all night!

You're not going to find a menu like this anywhere else. Hardly a typical panini restaurant. The combinations of ingredients are unique, really tasty, and worth a calorie splurge. Go.

Stopped by when walking around Astoria. This place has real character, not forgetting for us Brits real cups and saucers for hot choc. or coffee. I had a wonderful crostini which was so tasty. This little restaurant is really worth a visit when exploring. Please give it a try!

This is great little sandwich shop. I had the best panini ever, the prosciutto and fig - awesome!! Every time I go or order I always think I'll try something new, but I always end up with the prosciutto and fig panini! I guess I am adventurous the first time I go to a restaurant, if it works out I... More
