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."

Delicious Food

My husband I were passing through town and found this restaurant on Trip Advisor. Great little neighborhood restaurant. Freshly prepared food, served promptly, reasonably priced. Pleasant and hardworking staff. Well worth it.

Finally tried Bambino's and will be back to try their pizza and other menu items. Quaint location just south of MSU and a great atmosphere inside, from the tin ceilings to the local artistry on the walls for sale. We tried a pasta dish and a panini (loved the New Yorker). The bread is fresh service is very accommodating and... More

We decided to eat here at the last minute. We had a little wait, but the food is delicious. Our server disappeared and we really didn't see her again. That was the most disappointing thing about our evening. We would have ordered dessert if we didn't get tired of waiting. The other servers seemed to visit their tables and our... More

Close walk from Missouri State University- very small place w a nice outdoor patio ( something rare in Springfield) go early or late or there is a wait. My favorite dish is the Greek pasta. If you are at Missouri state just walk as parking is a nightmare

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 soon as I come back to... 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
