Bambinelli’s: Authentic Italian Straight from the Bronx


Bambinelli’s Italian Restaurant is a family owned and operated restaurant that has been open since 1980. Owner, Bonnie Bambinelli, uses culinary techniques and secret recipes handed down from her grandmother, who sailed from Genoa, Italy to New York in the early 1900s to settle in the Bronx. The restaurant is conveniently located within walking distance of Northlake Mall.

The atmosphere is very family oriented, clean and casual, with outdoor patio seating available. However, it’s all about the food here. Customers from all over have raved about their pizza, but the restaurant also serves up healthy sized portions of all types of Italian food.

Italian Lunch Specialties include Chicken Parmigiana, Chicken Marsala, Sausage or Meatball Parmigiana as well as a number of enticing Pasta Specialties like the Spaghetti with Marinara, Linguini Carbonara or Fettuccini Alfredo.

In addition to their Italian Specialties, they also serve up some delicious seafood dishes such as Fresh Grouper Francese and Fresh Mussels. Their Dinner Italian Specialties include many of the same options as well as a few surprises.

I enjoyed their Baked Lasagna on my last visit during lunch. It featured pasta layered with seasonal meats, ricotta and mozzarella cheese and was simply delicious. They serve traditional large servings, so you’ll never go away hungry. Next time, I definitely want to try their famous Pizza.

Bambinelli’s Italian Restaurant is located at 3202 Northlake Parkway NE, Atlanta, GA 30345. They also have a second location at 4153 Lawrenceville Highway, Lilburn, GA 30047. For more information, visit or call 770-493-1311.
