From an Adelaide hospitality family comes a new Italian restaurant that’s making its home on Peel Street.
Bambini Cucina‘s grand opening was originally slated for March but they, like many others, fell victim to the impacts of COVID-19 venue restrictions, forcing them to delay opening to June.
With owners Franco and Teresa Sorgini at the helm, this slice-of-Italy restaurant is opening in less than two weeks.
Franco who is also Bambini Cucina’s Executive Chef, ensured that the menu reflects an authentic tie to Italian cuisine.
Hearty, family friendly, carb-y dishes that are a welcome addition to Peel Street’s majority small bar-centric offerings.
Menu highlights include Franco’s steamed goat, and the family favourite; a seafood soup that combines a mix of crustacean and fillet fish, with home-made stock.
In fact, a majority of the menu prizes fresh and home-made pastas, and high quality locally sourced ingredients. We’re told that the house made Ricotta is a highlight.
Bambini Cucina also caters to basically every dietary, you simply have to ask the waiters.
While you’re there, also ask them about their wine list which is described by their team as concise and entirely focusing on Italian varietals (with the exception of a delicious shiraz).
With Koerner Brothers, Vigna Bottin, and Alpha Box & Dice as familiar names on the wine list, keep an eye out on their Italian imports that feature the greats (varietals) such as Nebbiolos, Sagiovese, Montelpuciano, Barberas and more.
Bambini will also be serving Italian inspired cocktails for those who don’t favour the grape. Expect Aperols, Negronis and more.
The restaurant’s fit out is derivative of a European summer, with pastel tones, and creamy beiges spread across the venue.
Courtesy of Spectra Building Designers in Hindmarsh, the restaurant feels fresh and exciting, with a location appropriate atmosphere during the hours of the night.
Bambini Cucina under normal circumstances fits up to 50 indoors and 20 outdoors, however, for the moment they will be adhering to Government social distancing requirements.
Slated to open on Friday 26 June, the restaurant’s opening hours will be friendly for late night diners.
