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

As we entered we realized the decor had changed slightly , the comfortable banquets that once lined the walls have been replaced by hard wood benches , not the same feel .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

Took my adult daughter to dinner here lady night and do not plan another visit here! We were given a small paper napkin but saw others with huge cloth napkins for starters. Filled our water glass, never to be filled again. My dinner of shrimp and pasta was very greasy and the pasta was much too al dente...the last shrimp... 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.
