Wonderful food, but slow service

We ate there twice during our 4 day stay. The food was excellent, but the service was slow and they did not speak or understand English. Even with that, I would recommend this Bistro. The price might be higher then the diners, but the food is worth it.

We stopped in for Italian food before going to Lights in Piazza. What a wonderful meal! We had the chicken marsella and it melted in your mouth. Price was reasonable and the wine was excellent. We had a Reisling which was crisp and no oaky taste. Good size glass for the price. A must if you are in Auburn and... More

We visit this restaurant each time we are in Auburn or the surrounding towns. It's always a good choice for our family. The food is authentic Italian cuisine prepared with a great deal of care. The restaurant has a nice, quiet atmosphere with an attentive but not "hovering" staff. Another reviewer talked about how the staff didn't understand or speak... More

This restaurant caught our eye as we were driving by. We weren't disappointed. The wait-staff was wonderful.

We were directed to B by a local cop who was hanging out at a fire sight we accidently bumped into! A small friendly place, very authentic - our waitress could hardly speak English and the staff conversed in Italian as well as playing Italian music all night. Just loved it. Food was very tasty and well presented. As my... More

I've eaten here several times now. The food is tasty and service excellent. I was disappointed with the paucity of NY wines offered, and the 2 on the list were mediocre, and don't represent the excellent NY wines that can be had. It's a shame this local restaurant does not support its local wineries better.

We order take out regularly from here, usually pizza or pasta. Lately it seems to be going way down hill. Two times ago, the center of the pizza was still doughy. Last time we got a pizza delivered they said 45 mins, took an hour and a half. Pizza was cold, very little pesto (pretty much dry) or cheese(looked like... More

We had lunch here on a Saturday. We were almost the only diners and the service was on the slow side. The sandwiches are giant-sized and large enough for some of us to take home half. My companions enjoyed their salad which they split. Good, but not great food in my opinion.

I eat here all the time. Consistent quality. The bread is amazing. The service is great. I've never been disappointed with any selection.

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
