Springfield Missouri's Hidden Gem
Like most everywhere else in the United States, Springfield has suffered from the disquietude of sprawling auto-oriented development that has left many craving a new urbanism that reflects the unique situation that is Bambinos.
Whether you walk, bike or drive there, you will be able to relax in a place that seems off the beaten path but still very much in the midst of it all.
Bambinos Cafe is proud of their reputation as one the best restaurants in town. There’s a lot of good restaurants in Springfield MO and so they were honored to be selected by as The Best Italian Food, Best Place For Date-Night Dinner and Best Restaurant by the Missouri State University newspaper The Standard.
It can be a bit of a challenge finding their local restaurant tucked back in the Phelps Grove neighborhood, but their food is worth the journey. 417 Magazine rated them Best Hidden Restaurant and said “You have to wind back into a residential area to find this slightly off-the-radar restaurant but it’ll be a treat when you do. The patio is large and covered, the atmosphere is laid-back and the prices are super-reasonable.”
Most customers who are searching for the top restaurants in Springfield Missouri feel they’ve stumbled across their own hidden gem once they find them. There are lots of places to eat in town, but few that offer the charm and friendly service you’ll find at Bambinos.
The next time you’re looking for a nice restaurant that won’t cost a fortune for a fresh and tasty meal, you should give them a try. If someone asks where to eat and you take them to Bambinos, they’ll thank you for introducing them to a great little restaurant they’d never heard of.
