Italian: Bambinos

Bambinos is a staple in the Springfield dining scene, offering a casual trattoria feel, affordable prices and housemade baked goods that complement the popular pasta selection. Known for dishes like perfectly gooey baked ziti, Bambinos also specializes in pizza, paninis and a selection of shareable appetizers, including its near-legendary spinach-artichoke dip.
