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 As we entered we realized the decor had changed slightly , the comfortable banquets that once lined the walls have been replaced by hard wood benches , not the same feel .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 .

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

Enjoyed a wonderful meal here. Just as good as our first visit a couple years ago. We had the full course meal for 19.99 and I left totally full. Would certainly go back when in the area.

This is not just a red sauce pasta place (tho they have it) but wonderfully flavorful, perfectly prepared specialities represent the best of this popular cuisine. Bambinos is located in downtown Auburn's restaurant row. Worth your visit.

This restaurant is an excellent choice when staying in Auburn. It is three short blocks from the Hilton Garden Inn and they deliver. The restaurant itself reminds me of a quaint New York City Italian restaurant. If ordering in remind them to send along the plastic ware as they tend to forget those.

This was our first time to eat here and it was a truly enjoyable experience. The food and service were excellent and the portions were very good. We look forward to eating there again very soon.

Phone calls to the Elbridge and the Auburn locations went unanswered, with no messages about status. A trip to Elbridge resulted in finding a darkened restaurant. The website had no updated info. So what's the story??????

On our way to turning stone for a family outing we stopped and had lunch at bambino's bistro. Great food, large portions very friendly staff. We all left very full with leftovers and happy. Big city type restaurant in a small town.
