We won't be back!
I am shocked at the positive reviews of this restaurant. Everyone I've talked to, who's eaten at Bambinelli's, says, "It's terrible!"
I've lived in the neighborhood a couple of years and hadn't yet tried Bambinelli's. So, my adult son, his girlfriend and I decided to try it one evening.
The garlic rolls were pretty good, and our service was excellent. That's all.
My son had lasagna which was unrecognizable. It was cold in the middle, and he had to mix it to be able to eat it. I had the fried ravioli and baked ziti. The ravioli was terrible, very greasy tasting. The ziti was so uninteresting that it was not good. My son's girlfriend had eggplant parmagiana. Her dish was so salty that she couldn't eat it.
When the waiter came to take our plates, my son's girlfriend expressed that she didn't like hers because it was too salty. He took our plates away. When he brought the check, he hadn't charged for her dinner and mine. That was very nice. We didn't request that. He just did it on his own. We were so impressed that we thought perhaps we should try this restaurant another evening.
When the waiter returned, my son asked if this was an "off" night, if they had a new cook, or if it was always like this. The waiter replied that it was always like this.
As we were leaving, the man at the entrance mumbled something at us. When my son asked him what he said, he repeated, "Watch that sait intake." This was not a friendly remark, but a snide remark. Unbelievable!
