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."

Best Italian Food Ever!

This was the best place we ate at in Springfield. The food was amazing, and the prices are extremely cheap. I didn't spend more than thirty five dollars, and I had an appetizer and dessert. Our waiter was excellent too. They are very friendly and courteous. I will go straight back to Bambinos as... read more

over the top, mom and pop, did not expect such an incredible meal. HVAC was lacking, yet the service, food, and overall experience was truly exceptional. I have 30 years in this industry and this restaurant I will visit anytime I'm in Springfield, Mo.

We ended up going twice in two days to Bambinos Cafe on Delmar. The lunch portion and choice of soup or salad is offered until 3:00 p.m. It's a wonderful deal price wise as well as being excellent pasta. Staff were attentive and offered carry out for soda and left overs both days. Excellent choice!

I haven't had a bad meal! Bread with oil and vinegar to start. I love the spinach and artichoke dip, house salad with their dressing and the Greek are my favorites.

I live 75 miles away from Bambino's but knew I wanted to try it when a friend from work told me about it. I had to be in Springfield yesterday for a conference. I tried it and liked it so much that I am going back tonight with my husband. It's worth another 85 mile drive for him to get... More

We were in town for the day and my husband googled funky restaurants. Bambino's came up and we decided on to try it. Boy, did we make a good decision. We arrived at a little past 11:20 and it was good timing. 20 Minutes later and we would have been waiting for a table. The wait staff was attentive and... More

Bambinos is a staple for Springfield pasta, especially among people who work at Missouri State. It is quick, delicious, and very affordable, especially at lunch. The service is not always excellent, but the food is always quite tasty, and in their defense, it gets very crowded rather quickly. I highly recommend the Zia, and many of their soups are delicious... More

I took my husband here for the first time. We really loved the food. Their spinach dip is awesome. The baked ziti is very good. All is made homemade. I will go there again.

Oh my goodness! This is the best Italian food I have ever had. The price is right and the service is great. My son introduced us to Bambinos about a month ago and they now know us when we walk in. I get the DIana. If you like shrimp, Alfredo, Broccoli and mushrooms you have to get it. They serve... More

This is a great little Italian café. I love the st Louis style pizzas they serve, the bread is fresh and good. The pasta is excellent. Its a very intimate atmosphere, very good for date night.
