We took the panini tradition from the old country, worked hard at making it better using local produce and carefully baked breads. We saw our customers smile… the Panino Americano was born.
The OPP is amazing. Perfect bread.
They haven't had butternut squash soup in awhile. That was great. They replaced it w/ a tomato bisque soup. Also awesome. The Notorious PIG and the Cheese Us Christo are our favorite brunch paninis.
any sandwich is great sandwich
Goat cheese panini 👌🏼
Hmm... The reviews are dead on, very good panini, peanut butter hot coco is good too
the Notorious PIG is great
All the panini are amazing!
I have to confess that I order the same panini every time I'm here - the chicken and arugula with mozzarella and spicy mayo. It's just the best.
Yum, and get a table in the garden out back during the summer.
A true destination spot for Astoria. Breakfast paninis on the weekend are particularly good
Smoked bacon panini, do it.
Awesome paninis & crostinis! Love their chicken, mozzarella, arugula & spicy mayo panini.
The hype is warranted. The panini are incredible - and huge!
A little over priced for the quantity of food received. The menu is quite basic
Amazing crostini and paninis... Especially for brunch! LOVED the Bacon Butty. Patio in the back allows you to enjoy a nice day too!
OMG I don't know why I'd never been to this place before! Everything is freaking delicious and worth trying, warm crispy sandwiches are the best.
Best paninis I've ever had.
try anything! nothing is bad here.
Paninis look small but incredibly filling. Full menu available always. So many great #paninis I need to go back #astoria #queenseats #foodie #nomnom #italian #ilbambino #brunch #nyc
Crustini pu pu platter
Try the pu pu platter- AMAZING
There's a great chicken, mozzarella, arugula, and spicy mayo panini! So good. I've also had a macaroni and cheese panini once and thought it was tastey too.
If you're there with a friend or on a date, I recommend splitting a panini and getting a mix of crostini. Any crostini with truffle butter is a win. And try the chicken with pesto panini. Solid food.
Best Paninis Ever.. Romantic Place Winter 2014
Been coming a long time and I've never been disappointed. With this menu you really can't go wrong
Berkshire Ham panini for the truffle lovers. Yum!
The breakfast panning are the best
Panini is huge. I can only finished half of it. Soup is great, you should ask for it.
Everything is amazing on the menu and the portions are great for the price!
Best paninis I've ever had
Delicious paninis. Make sure to get the green beans with truffle oil as a side.
Outdoor seating and panini!
Il Bambino makes delicious paninis. I like the Italian Meatloaf Panini, with its tender meat, tomato pesto, & spicy. Beer & wine available. Soups not available in the summer. There's a Backyard Patio.
Crostini with smoked bacon, goat cheese and spicy mayo was so good! Great place to have lunch!
Didn't know how great paninis and crostinis could be before I got here. Potato salad is to die for too!
Well executed small plates and sandwiches are the norm at Il Bambino, all at wallet-friendly prices. Try the Argula Mimosa as a starter, and opt for a panini such as the Soppressata.
Great outdoor seating out back. Delicious Crostini and Panini. Dozens of options. You'll have to visit a few times to try them all. And you should totally do that.
Get the pu pu platter, lets you try a whole bunch
Get the Bacon Butty panini for brunch with spicy mayo. Messy but delicious.
If you like egg salad, try the crostini with fontina and chive oil. It's awesome.
On of my favorite places to go to in Astoria
The delicious paninis and amazing music choices make this place my go-to spot in Astoria.
The Weekend Debris is worth the trip but be warned, you're better off splitting one panini and a side because they are massive. Service was a little off but the food alone is worth coming back for.
Crostini with spicy avocado is great👍👍👍😋😋😋
Love this place !! Yum😋😋😋
Their daily specials are amazing and leave room for dessert! You'll thank me later :)
Delightful and helpful staff. My date was craving a panini that had been on a previous menu and they not only helped recall all the ingredients but surprised us with it :)
wow the peanut butter hot chocolate is great
