Great Food. Great Service. Your Neighborhood. Bambinos Cafe is proud of our reputation as one the best restaurants in town. There's a lot of great restaurants in Springfield MO and so we were honored to be selected by as The Best Italian Food, Best Place For Date-Night Dinner and Best Restaurant by the Missouri State University newspaper The Standard. It can be a bit of a challenge finding our local restaurant tucked back in the Phelps Grove neighborhood, but we hope that our food is worth the journey. 417 Magazine rated us Best Hidden Restaurant and said "You have to wind back into a residential area to find this slightly off-the-radar restaurant but it'll be a treat when you do. The patio is large and covered, the atmosphere is laid-back and the prices are super-reasonable."

Scrumptious Italian Food

Our family was in town to tour the University. Our tour guide suggested this place for a great place to eat. So glad she did! Service was fast and friendly and the place was very clean. There were four of us and all of our dishes were superb! From the salads to the soups to the main entree. All... read more

A great little cafe within walking distance of my workplace. It's a wonderful place to get fresh, quality food over the lunch hour. I can honestly say--I've been eating there for years and never had anything that was not at least good, if not excellent! It can get quite congested at times, but that's a good indication of the restaurant's... More

We were delighted with a recent visit to Bambinos. Not easy to find, this cozy cafe is tucked in the corner of the Half A Hill Shopping Center at East Battlefield and Lone Pine. The staff was friendly and attentive. The night of our visit, the place was packed—which was a good sign. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. We... More

A well known place right next to the university. Gets lots of locals, especially during the school year. The place was busy on a Saturday night but were able to get a table for 7 right away. Service was good and food was delicious. Portion sizes are huge. No one in our party could finish their entree. Small list of... More

Wow! What a wonderful surprise! My family and I were driving through Springfield and I found a review and menu for this restaurant. Sounded good, so off we headed. Boy! Am I glad we did! Although not easily found - the street doesn't cut through to either of two major streets closeby, it's worth finding! I had the baked ziti... More

All 18 of us loved our meals! We got everything from pasta to salads to chicken and vegtables and everyone was happy. The restaurant was already busy by 5:30 and the staff quickly found space for all of us and the meals were wonderful.

Very good food. Reasonable prices for huge portions. I suggest you get the lunch size fettuccine. Best pasta around! We will be back.
