The price is terrible but worth it. I remember when bambinos were a buck a piece! Argh. But they serve a good product. They are slow. BUT -- I want my food fresh so it is okay to make it fresh. Always enjoy a good...More

My son ate here many times on his mission. When we came back for a visit, he said we must eat here. This is a great concept. Calzones too big? Want to try other flavors? Order the bambino. These are basically small calzones and you...More
