Bambino's on UrbanspoonSheepie and I were in Seattle over the weekend. It was late in the night, after checking out the Chihuly Garden and Glass  (which I HIGHLY recommend!!!), we were looking for a place to dine. We walked around the area and found Bambino’s which seemed like a decent place. It had a Gastown look and feel with brick walls, and a real gas-burning pizza oven! It’s dark and cozy with friendly staff.idearabbit_bambinos_seattle5idearabbit_bambinos_seattle2I love it when restaurants serve chilled water in glass bottles. It eliminates the hassle of having to ask for water every time the cup is empty. I noticed that the label on the glass said 12% alcohol. It puzzled me since I knew it was water – not alcohol. Upon examining, I found out it’s a wine bottle from Canada! Then, I found it was made in BC – oh wait, it says Victoria! Haha…we come all the way down to Seattle, and end up drinking Seattle water out of a wine bottle from Victoria, BC.

idearabbit-bambino5After crossing over to the US, it’s always overwhelming how big all the portions are! But this was gigantic!! It was bigger than the big plate. LOL. I knew I wouldn’t be able to finish it, and wouldn’t be able to take home as we were going to stay in a motel with no fridge. So I ate the best part – the inside. Even then, I still couldn’t finish all of the contents inside! The dough part was a bit burnt, and wasn’t all that fabulous or anything, so I didn’t feel like eating it anyways.

If you’re hungry, this is the place to go! It’s also great for a relaxing dinner or chitchatting by the bar.
