So good!

This is one of our favorite places to eat in Astoria. The prices are good and the food is excellent. We've been a few times and I'm sure we'll be there again soon.

Great food with VERY generous portions. The only mistake we made was ordering too much. One panini is big enought for two!

Unique take on the traditional panini sandwich. The sandwiches were large for the price and very filling. My only criticism is that in general you expect a few chips or some kind of side item with a sandwich instead of an a la carte style. I would definitely go back, there were a few sandwiches on the menu that looked... More

Nice little place and worth knowing about for a quick, high quality lunch. Friendly, efficient service, generously filled panini. I would go again for sure.

The paninis are imaginative, well prepared and large. You can almost count on taking home tomorrow's lunch. The beer and wine selection is good for small place and their outside patio is quite pleasant. Value is really noteworthy

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. They have a pretty good... More

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

I stumbled across this place looking for a completely different restaurant & so thankful for that! 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
