Everytime we go here the food is always good. They also do a good job at getting you in and out if you have tickets to Sheas. The meatballs are just ok, and I wouldnt order them again. Personally I'd stick with the pizzas and you will be very happy.

A go~to place downtown!
LOVE, LOVE Bambino's! Downstairs is fun, bustling...upstairs is charming & has a beautiful patio!

Bambino worth the trip!
Try the fried mozzarella - you will not be disappointed! Excellent pizza - the sausage pizza and mushroom pizzas both terrific and would order again. We went for lunch, but look forward to going back for dinner for the vibrant bar scene and to try some of the entree dishes.

A great dining experience
A great dining experience with two out of town clients. Tremendous service and fabulous food. A "must visit" Buffalo destination.

POOR SERVICE... GREAT FOOD
Overall our experience was a good one. Just our service was terrible. Waited 30 minutes for drinks and longer for bread and water. Every time waitress said was going to get something she never came back. Food was delicious when we finally got it. Had to wait 20 minutes to get check and we were late for a show as Sheas . I understand that it was a busy night with a sabres game and show at sheas. But we felt neglected for sure.

We enjoyed a 7pm dinner there
We enjoyed a 7pm dinner there and was difficult to make up our minds between some awesome menu and special choices. My husband had the best salmom dinner in WNY and I had a tomato cream sauce over penne pasta special. Both dinners were seasoned just right, not too spicy or too bland. That is a rare find in itself these days when meals in this area tend to be on the over seasoned cajun side. We plan on spending an evening enjoying the back patio this summer. Good food and drink in an enjoyable atmosphere inside and out! A unique find!

Overall, our dining experience was a positive one. The Waiter (Rob) was extremely nice & well-educated on the menu. The food was excellent. The only issue was the 35-minute wait between our appetizer & main course. We had show tickets & were on a limited timeframe. We made the show just in time. I would definately recommend your Restaurant to others & do plan on coming back as a patron myself.

Lovely Lunchable Spot
Went for lunch with my supervisor, and shared the chopped salad, arancini and a white pizza. Their menu is smaller than I expected, but the chopped salad was excellent, and would've made a great lunch entree by itself. Our waitress, Julie, recommended the arancini for an appetizer, and it was delicious - have to bring my boyfriend next time. Would like to try one of their pizza rossos, and the dinner menu looked intriguing. Julie was personable and attentive, and service was prompt.

A night at the theater
Prior to seeing the Book of Mormon at Shea's theater we decided to have dinner at Bambino Bar and Kitchen. This was not our first visit to Bambino in. We were pleasantly greeted by the hostess and promptly taken to our table. This first experience foreshadowed our evening. Everyone was extremely pleasant. The food was outstanding. We started with the homemade Burratta which melted in our mouths. Our entrees were the chicken piccata and pork milanese. Both dishes were outstanding, served promptly and hot. It was easy to find an excellent bottle of wine to accompany the meal. All in all an outstanding dinning experience at a very reasonable price. Great meal and a great show made for a great evening.

We tried Bambino because it was close to Shea's and we wanted to have dinner before a show. Our reservations were at 6 and we made it to our 8 p.m. show with time to spare. The service was fast and attentive. Riceballs, prosciutto, caprese and tapenade were a tasty start. Fresh mozzarella is amazing, recommend anything from the mozzarella bar. Dinners included the meatball sandwich, meatball pizza and grilled chicken and all were spectacular. Prices were reasonable.

From the time we entered the restaurant, there was nothing to complain about, Hostess was very prompt and friendly, table was great, server was excellent and food was delicious. the price of dinner was very reasonable and if you through in the free parking for Shea's it was a great deal. We're always trying new restaurants in Buffalo and this one is definitely a gem!!! Will recommend to friends and will return.

Aside from a really tough flank steak one time the food and service at Bambino is always great! We did wait a little long for our drinks from the bar this time but we aren't big drinkers so it didnt change the nightich at all. It seemed some of the wait staff was new but we'll be back at some point for sure

The food and service was excellent, however, I did think it was a little pricey. I would recommend this restaurant but I would warn people about the prices.

Distinctive, skillful recipes
It was our first time in Buffalo and we wanted a restaurant that would stand out from the ordinary. We were told to try Bambino's. It was a very good recommendation. We found the food interesting and creative without being over the top. Quality of ingredients was excellent. We were there on a quiet Sunday, so our experience might be different than during mid-week, but we found staff very knowledgeable and friendly without hovering over us.
We'd definitely recommend.

A group of friends and I came from out of town to this restaurant based on a recommendation from a local friend and it lived up to all our expectations. The food was great, the bread was still warm when it was delivered to our table and the menu was extensive. I had the mushroom ravioli, and I loved it.

Little Italian Gem
The fried mozzarella appetizer was the best husband and I ever had! We both got the mixed green salad which was delicious and very big. We split a margarita pizza and fi ished the meal with a yummy homemade cannoli. Great meal!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed very much!
We were looking for a spot for dinner before the show and thought of this because of the close proximity to 710 Main Street. Made the reservations on line which was sweet. Got the time we wanted and arrived at the show in plenty of time. Service was excellent, the salad was HUGE! The beef tenderloin was delicious. The wine list was so so. They try to keep it authentic Italian. We would eat dinner here again for sure.

Great food, excellent service!!
The homemade pasta -- which comes in both small and large plates -- at Bambino is out of this world. We were a group of 10 and each of us had something different from the pasta menu and everyone was fabulous. The homemade mozzerella cheese was equally as good. And our server - Rob - is one of the best in the area. You cannot go wrong. And I was informed that their lemon drop martinis were very good too!
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dining was a pleasure!
My friends and I enjoyed dining at Bambino. I believe our waitress' name was Jessica - she was very friendly and helpful. Our cocktails were great and our dinners were delicious. I had mushroom ravioli and my friends had salads and rigatoni. We were going to the theatre afterwards, so we were done in plenty of time.

Good food and great pasta
We were worried about finding fine dining in Buffalo but this place fit the bill. Our server was friendly and helpful though he disappeared when the room got busy> We were having fun so we really didn't miss him. Food was absolutely delicious especially the pastas and Sunday sauce. Mushroom ravioli were also superb with the truffle dusting adding unbelievable flavors. Cocktails were unique, especially the apple pie bellini of the day and were strong which was nice. The food looked so good that we ordered too much. The only miss in my opinion was the fonduto which was bland and not very inspiring. The arancini was excellent and the chopped salad was so full of delicious and healthy ingredients. Ingredients were all of excellent quality.

We were very pleased with the whole dining experience, casual yet elegant. Great staff, we will come back as a group and for dinner on our own. Our waitress was great, helpful, informative and paid attention to her tables. She must have tasted all the meals because she gave details on the menu items. We were impressed with the restaurant as a whole and hope to return soon. It was well worth giving the restaurant a try for the first time.

Perfect Dinner Before a Show
Went to Bambino before going to Shea's for a show. It was delicious, service was great, and location convenient to Shea's. We will be back!

Table of 6, everyone very happy with their food and beverages. Specials were outstanding. Great bar maid, server. All in all a great dining experience. Will definitely go back.Excellent wait staff.

Great food even with the loud music
The food was great. The atmosphere was a bit lacking in that there was loud music playing from the first floor while we were dining. This was a bit annoying.
The prices were reasonable, and the server we had was very attentive. Would come back again.

Your Nonna's food - only better
We went for Restaurant Week and were all favorably impressed by the quality (and quantity) of food - a very nice salad (with candied nuts and blue cheese and apple), 2 huge chicken cutlets with potatoes and greens, and an excellent canolli for dessert. Many modestly priced wines by the glass. Perfect for before the theater - they even have their own parking spots. Would go again.

Dinner for four: great service, great menu, food was outstanding. Building was interesting and added to the experience.

We like to frequent bambino because we have never had a bad meal/service there.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is definitely a great find and we loved the proximity to Shea's. It's less expensive than other restaurants that are close and definitely just as good. The service was quick and attentive. We started off with the calamari and caprese. The tomatoes appeared to have been roasted, which is an excellent idea for tomatoes this time of year. The calamari had a light dusting of flour and quick fry so it was perfect and not rubbery. We shared the Scicilian red pizza, which was cooked perfectly, the crust having a slight crunch but not burnt. I already have reservations for the next Shea's event I am attending.
