The atmosphere is amazing! I love the music and vibe!! The food is out of this world!! I was more than satisfied with my dinner! They always have great specials and the price is more than reasonable. Definitely recommend coming!

“Bambino's Italian Restaurant, Lawrence, KS”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

We've eaten at Bambino's many, many times... but last night may be the "LAST" night.

The food there seems to be either fantastic or just horrid.. A staple like Fettuccine Alfredo should be perfect, but it tasted like paste.. no flavor and definitely no cheese or fresh cream flavor. If there hadn't been a cheese shaker at the table, I would have turned the dish back.

My companion had the Chicken Spiedini, with Fettuccine Alfredo. The Chicken Speidini was perfectly tender with a hint of lemon and spiced perfectly, and the accompanying Fettuccine Alfredo was pastey, flavorless, and almost cold.

We keep hoping that Bambino's will catch on to the fact that they are losing customers.. but maybe not. Lawrence isn't a very big town, and if Bambino's wants to compete with Paisano's Ristorante, they must improve the quality/freshness/flavor of their food, because right now Paisano's wins, hands down.

“Great Italian Cuisine!!!”
Reviewed 1 September 2012

Nice place to eat, great atmosphere, and great service. Everyone at my table enjoyed their entrees. I especially liked the eggplant parmesan, made just the way I like it. Their tiramisu was real good too.

“NOT GOOD”
Reviewed 28 June 2012

The service and food were poor. We really expected great things - it took over an hour to get the food and it was seasoned poorly.
