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.

    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.

    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.

    Billy Keenly · July 30, 2015

    Yum, and get a table in the garden out back during the summer.

    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.

    Nickie Sam · February 21, 2015
  • Florence H.

    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.

    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!

    Johnny Appleseed · August 11, 2014
  • Lori L.

    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.

    Lori Luo · August 11, 2014
  • Frank  V.

    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 Bacon Butty panini for brunch with spicy mayo. Messy but delicious.

    Johann R. · August 8, 2014
  • Eve C.

    If you like egg salad, try the crostini with fontina and chive oil. It's awesome.

    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.
