Bambino's has been on my list of restaurants I wanted to visit for a long time so I was excited when 6 of us decided to go. After our experience, I can definitely cross this off my list! I cannot see any reason to go again. From the start, our waiter was largely inattentive. We felt as if we were... More

Nice little place. Food was so so. What bothered me about this is the menu both on here and their actual website is NOTHING like what they gave us. I choose this place based off of the menu and was definitely disappointed. They had about 6 real pasta dishes the rest of the menu was like a pizzeria menu (pizza,... More

Great great great Italian food! It's authentic and worth the money! We will definitely be back! We went there for the first time and my husband was unsure because he's not a huge Italian food fan but Bambinos won him over!

Nice patio, even though we did not sit outside due to weather. Comfortable seating. Ambiance would have been better if crappy music turned down and something a little more suitable as background music. Waiters rushed, apparently they had a big rush earlier, but all staff were still a little scrambled and it showed alot. Food okay, rather tasteless for all... More

We had pizza ravioli panini spaghetti antipasto and the texan wrap. What a delicious meal and wonderful service. Our group ranged from 11 to 58. Everyone was delighted with the meal. 😄 Thank you for a lovely meal.

One of had the lasagna; the other (not being so hungry) had soup and salad. We were both pleased. Monday nights a bottle of wine is half price. Other days have special lunch or dinner specials. The location was right downtown near the hotels. Not many places were open on Mondays in this area. If you are nearby, go. The... More

We visited this charming restaurant in downtown Auburn. There are parking spots right in front. Cozy inside space with a choice of outdoor seating. Good service with complimentary bread basket that was fresh. I had the pasta fagioli soup, a bean soup, which was very good. Having been raised on Italian food, I can vouch for this passing my grandmother's... More

Took the family there ,second visit from a year ago . From the start should've realized things weren't the same . As we entered we realized the decor had changed slightly , the comfortable banquets that once lined the walls have been replaced by hard wood benches , not the same feel . No music or ambience . The hostess... More

Bambino's was a nice little Italian restaurant in the heart of Auburn. Nothing real fancy but the food was outstanding. We had outdoor seating on a beautiful fall evening. The outdoor area is not real large so if you are interested in eating outside, call ahead or go early. Wine list had plenty of choices. Everyone in our group went... More
