You come to Bambino to drink really tasty natural wines, listen to great music (pulled from a giant wall of records spun on a player behind the bar), and to see and be seen - but not in a snobby way. There’s no pretension here and the atmosphere is energetic and friendly. The fact that they also serve really great bar food - things like a rotisserie chicken sandwich dripping in jus, spinach-stuffed calzone, and grilled corn covered in pecorino cheese and crushed hazelnuts - is a bonus. Their wine selection is extensive, but don’t bother with the list: Just tell the somm what you’re after and they’ll make a solid suggestion. If cocktails are more your thing, they’ve got a selection on tap, many highlighting digestifs, from a Negroni to a Cipran. The kitchen closes at 11pm, but they keep pouring wine until 2am.
