Absolutely great place for a great meal. Food was fresh and delicious. The wait staff was extremely polite and did not rush us through our meal even though it was late and during the off-season. I would highly recommend trying this restaurant for an inspired Italian meal.

We weren't expecting much from an Italian restaurant in a shopping center in a tourist area but were pleasantly surprised. The casaer salad and mushroom ravioli were excellent. The daily special of risotto with duck was great as well. All was great paired with the house chianti.

After an afternoon of sightseeing around the area of the Currituck Beach Lighthouse in Corolla we were looking for a bite to eat. Not everyone wanted the same thing for dinner so we settled on something everyone likes - Italian. The food is average as is the service. We ordered two kids meals (pasta bowls that were overpriced and underwhelming... More

We made reservations on a Thursday evening at 7pm and arrived to excellent service by Peter. Can not flaw the waiter - he was great. Everyone (2 children; 3 adults) enjoyed the food. The penne lamb dish was good, but the lamb could have been more prevalent. The house risotto was tasty, but a little heavy on the pepper. The... More

Our extended family of 6 had an 8pm reservation and were seated within minutes of our arrival. The dining room was small, but comfortable. Our waitress, Natasha, immediately introduced herself and filled our water glasses. She was friendly and attentive during the entire meal. We ordered several appetizers, including the daily special...pan fried duck egg. Everything looked and tasted great.... More

Our family 9 of us...5 adults and 4 children dined early evening (5:00) at Bambino's. Several of us had the rock fish. It was delicious as was everyone else's dish. The service was excellent. I think this would make for an excellent intimate dinner.

We've eaten many times at this location when it was Nicoletta's. This was our first trip to the restaurant since it was Bambino's. We love that it is a smaller restaurant and not so loud as some of the other restaurants in Corolla. They were able to accomodate a party of 9 with a reservation very comfortably. Service was pleasant... More

This restuarant was a great surprise on our trip to Corolla. It is small so you need to make a reservation, but it is worth it. We were a family of four and each of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The lasagna was one of the best we have ever tried. Definitely one of the best in the area and... More

We were a group of 7. 4 adults and 3 kids. Had no trouble at all getting a table with a reservation made only 45mins before we arrived. The restaurant was really quite empty ( 7.30 pm) which is strange for a very busy time of year. The service was ok but nothing special and the food was a little... More

Took my family to Bambino for waht we thought would be a good Italian style meal. All 7 of us were very disappointed. The shrimp with polenta sounded great. The shrimp were of the size 80 to the pound, or so it seemed. I never knew shrimp that small could be cleaned. The polenta had teh texture of partially cooked... More
