Do your heart some good at Bambino’s

Last week, I visited with Roxana Sarraf, owner of Bambino’s Italian Café. She presented me with two beautiful dishes from her menu, the Antipasto Salad and heart healthy Spiedini Fruit Di Mare.

The antipasto salad was a colorful combination of chopped romaine and leaf lettuce, black olives, tomatoes, cucumber, banana peppers, red onion, and provel cheese tossed lightly in Bambino’s house dressing.

The delightful Spiedini Fruit Di Mare came packed with omega-3 fatty acids, as a generous serving of tender scallops and shrimp took center stage. The delicately breaded and grilled scallops and shrimp were served alongside Bambino’s whole grain wheat pasta that had been mingled in their homemade pesto. A delicious amogio sauce consisting of olive oil, lemon juice, and spices paired well with the scallops and shrimp. For a lighter meal, the staff at Bambino’s would be happy to serve the sauces on the side.

I was excited to hear that Bambino’s makes all of their pasta sauces in-house, as well as their pizza dough, baguettes, and focaccia. Furthermore, Bambino’s is happy to accommodate those with special dietary restrictions – They offer gluten-free pasta, vegetarian dishes, low sodium sauces, and are happy to take any special requests. They also offer half size portions, and you can add a side of vegetables or fruit to any dish.

Visit the charming Bambino’s for some heartwarming entrees and service. Be sure to drop in for lunch as they offer great deals for smaller portions of their dinner entrees – Most dishes on their lunch menu are around $5.00 to $6.00.

The antipasto salad is my favorite! It is always fresh and delicious. The lasagna is great also!

My favorite dish would have to be the seafood ravioli or the fetuccine alfredo with spaghetti noodles. They are all so delicious and fresh.

Bambino's food is awesome and every time I go there I have a great experience! My favorite item is the bambino pasta and I always get the garlic cheese bread. They make their own ranch that has a hint of dill and it is fabulous on any of their salads. I highly recommend this restaurant!

I have eaten at Bambino's multiple times, and the food there is wonderful. It always tastes super fresh! The service is fantastic and everyone is so nice. I have yet to try either of these dishes, but they're definitely on the top of my list! My favorite dishes so far are the Caprese salad with shrimp, and the Arrabbiata Gamberetti!! What a superb place to eat!

Bambino's Italian Restaurant is an amazing place to get Italian food in Lawrence,KS. I have also never tried those two dishes but am definitely going to try them the next time I dine in especially after seeing those pictures yum! I have eaten at Bambino's numerous times and have loved everything I have tried with my favorites being the pasta di bambino as well as the Caprese salad! The service is also really great and everyone is always really friendly, I definitely recommend for everyone to come in and try out this great place!

Bambinos is my go-to choice for authentic and delicious Italian food! The antipasto salad tastes as good as it looks and the Arrabiata Gamberetti is great if you're looking for a little spice! If you haven't stopped by yet you definitely need to come check it out!
