Very good dinner here with the whole family. The wait staff was very attentive. They smartly offered to go ahead and put the kids' pizza order in first. The Bambino easily fed our four and six year olds with 1/4 pizza left over. I had the mushroom pizza which was good, but for me not as good as just the cheese pizza. They recommend one pizza per adult, but really two adults can easily share one pizza. Maybe add an appetizer if you are really hungry.

Five of us ate here on a Monday night. It was pretty busy at 7:00 pm. We had a delicious salad with beets and oranges. We all had different pies. The Margherita was outstanding. The others all said theirs were great too. Had a nice Montepulciano with dinner. Service very friendly and good.

Perfect pizza, delicious crust and interesting and different toppings, plus you can add more if you dont like their combo. The antipasto is incredible, enough for four, and the best part of all is the gelatto. Absolutely delicious. Great interesting decor and really nice wait and kitchen staff. This place is definitely worth the visit. Leave the kids at home.

Fresh natural ingredients, imported hams, in-house mozzerela cheese, one of the best crusts I've ever tasted.

Don't get me wrong this is good pizza, but if you have a good pizza place you like and put a few semi-exotic things on it, it will be just as good if not better. The crust is the best part. The edges are chewy and flavorful. The center is soft, and they the warn you on the menu.

We stared with an antipasto plate. It had a nice selection of sopressata, cured ham, artichokes, mozzarella, etc.

There were four of us and the menu says each 12" pizza serves one. Unless you play for the NFL, two pizzas will serve 3-4 and three pizza will serve four good eaters.

Fig and pig, an interesting combination, but I found it almost dessert-like. The sweetness of the fig and the Gorgonzola was like a fruit and cheese plate. The pancetta lardo was essentially imperceptible to me. It was the least favorite of the three to the four of us.

Margherita was as described. Good, but not memorable. The sauce is just puréed san marzano tomatoes with no spices.

Genoese was pesto with sausage and Parmesano reggiano, our second favorite.

Our favorite was the Tre Porcini. Many would find it too salty. How could it not be somewhat salty with sausage, prosciutto, and sopressata.

It is a small dining room inside and the tables are packed in. Until our table neighbors left we were unable to move back from the table.

Better than average, but not what we hoped for.
