I invited a chef and a winemaker to join me for luncheon. The three of us enjoyed the food & service, We were treated like kings!!
Great neighborhood restaurant
We enjoyed this place very much. The waiter was very solicitous, gave us tastes of various wines, and the food was wonderful. Their bread is out of this world.
Great neighborhood place with good food, good drink, and a noise level that permits conversation at a normal level. Service is always friendly and responsive. A regular hangout for us and a place we bring guests.
A great go to Family restaurant . Great staff, good food.
I came here for dinner with my friend and parents. The food was great. Staff was very attentive. It's a bit on the cozy side but not too bad. I had the pasta for dinner and would enjoy trying the pizza some time in the future!
Great restaurant. The service was impeccable and the food was authentic and delicious. Our waiter was knowledgeable of the menu and wine list, friendly, and very attentive. Will definitely go back again!
Wonderful food. Nice size portions. Really nice servers. Nice reasonable wines. Great desserts. I can't ask for anything more :-)))))
This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant in Cole Valley. We are frequent visitors and love the food, the wait staff and the home made bread. Their salmon salad is amazing But so is everything we've ordered there so far. I recommend.
Celebrating a friend's birthday and Bambino's made it very special. Service was attentive and personnel (Sam's the best). Food was plentiful and delicious, (Calamari, Margarita Pizza, Cioppino, Butter Lettuce Salad, Pasta with Fresh Clams, and finished with 3 desserts), great food. Comfortable restaurant. It was just what we were looking for. Thank you all.
Food is very good and the service is very good. Like the dinning atmosphere.
First time here and it was brunch. Lovely, calm and excellent brunch. Not a manic chaotic thing at all. Great and consistent service. Food was top notch. Benedicts all around. Very good. Would definitely recommend and go again.
My husband and I go here as often as possible. The food is great, good wine list and I just like the vibe here.
Alway a wonderful all around meal. Service, food and atmosphere are always just right. My favorites: calamari, pizza margarita, pasta with clams, a great bottle of wine and finish with a house made dessert. The best all around meal in SF.
On a freezing wet winter night Bambino's offered a warm friendly reception. Ambiance is great,service attentive and the place is well-suited to groups. Our group found the food only fair, a chicken dish somewhat tough, cioppino lacking in broth. Not a place to recommend to foodies but a convivial spot for a birthday or group get-together.
We love this place! We loved every dish we ordered. Portions were generous. The staff was super friendly. I can not recommend highly enough.
Wonderful neighborhood restaurant with quality food, range of food on menu, attentive service.
Really enjoyed the entire experience at Bambinos. The food was better than I was expecting and the atmosphere made for a great date night with the wife. Staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. Will definitely be returning to try more of the menu.
Great spot in SF for Italian food. Service was top notch and a great meal overall from salad to dessert. Highly recommend Bambino's!
We loved the food and the staff are great. Some nice original dishes. Lots of fun.
The service is amazing, especially with our group of 10, including 4 small children. Wonderful to feel welcomed as families. My only recommendation is that you bring food for the kids much earlier next time to avoid near meltdowns.
Another wonderful meal @ Bambino's. Food and service were great, as always.
Just a bunch of friends getting together at Bambino's for dinner and it was just perfect. Margarita pizza and calamari to start with (wonderful). Pastas, lamb, salmon, everyone raved how good and plentiful the entrees were. 3 bottles of wine, 3 desserts and what a perfect evening.
Delicious Italian food, and excellent service in a nice quiet SF neighborhood. Great place for a family dinner. Children are welcome and they even give them some pizza dough to play with.
Close to UCSF Paranassus.
Pizza was excellent. Apple, pistachio salad was big enough for 4 to share & excellent. Lasagna with meat sauce was delicious
I arrived with only 2 of the 6 who scheduled to be there because of the heavy rain. The restaurant staff very quickly re-arranged the chairs and did not complain, grateful because this was a business dinner. Excellent food, prompt service, did not interrupt and at the same time kept things moving along.
My only criteria was "kid friendly", not very many restaurants on Open Table to choose from, this works in Bambino's favor. Glad Bambino's popped up. Sadly, it did not have a "full bar", but that just saved us on theoverall bill. The food was delicious. Service attentive, but not overbearing. If there is parking, it was not to be found, so it means the street by street stalking. Did I say, the food was delicious!
It was just a casual dinner for 4. The dinner was delicious; calamari, finocchio salad, chicken parmesan, pasta with clams and salmon were all wonderful. Large portions, well prepared. Flourless chocolate olive oil cake was the bomb, soo soo good. Service was perfect, attentive knowledgeable waiter. I would most definitely recommend Bambino's.
We celebrated NYE here with the kids bc we love bambinos! The food, the servers, everything about bambinos is great to us — one of our favorite places to go. Our favorite foods are the baked penne, the ravioli with creamy pesto, and the kids love the spaghetti and meatballs. They especially love the tiramisu! Go enjoy an evening at bambinos!
Good Food, good wait staff. Cozy atmosphere. Would return.
Food was good, however the service was terrible. There were only a handful of patrons and the Kitchen was incredibly slow. Wouldn’t return. Thank you.
Love coming to this place. They always have awesome service and the food is amazing. We tried the chocolate olive oil cake for the first time and it was delicious!
Very friendly staff - good food
Nice place with great food.
For SF it’s quite affordable.
Wonderfully cozy atmosphere. Great service. Food was excellent, with a beautiful variety of options.
One of the highlights of Cole Valley. There's a varied menu of Italian food and a good wine list. Prices are reasonable. It's popular with locals, which means it's usually noisy. Parking can be tough, but not impossible.
Brunch menu offers many choices and a myriad of coffee drinks, hot and cold, inside an attractive, welcoming setting. Servers are extremely pleasant, friendly and efficient. The restaurant is a neighborhood gem, and always wonderful to children.
Great service and the food was delicious. I was there with some friends from out of town. One who doesn't eat cheese and one who is a vegetarian. There was something on the menu for everyone. For appetizers, we ordered calamari and a large seasonal salad to share. The calamari was cooked perfectly and the salad had all the right mix of nuts and fruit in a light dressing. I ordered the gnocchi which is made from cheese instead of potato and it was sooo good. Others at the table ordered the cheese ravioli, linguine and clams, and a pasta with spicy tomato sauce. There was nothing left on the plates and I was told it was all amazing. The portions were perfect. We were full and satisfied. Would definitely recommend.
Food was excellent! Service was great! Food portions were large! We enjoyed!
A friend and I went to Bambino's for a early dinner. It was a lovely atmosphere with great service. I ordered the bake pasta which was definitely filling. I would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for good Italian food.
