Good eats

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... read more

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

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.
