About Bambino Ristorante

Bambino Ristorante brings the spirit of Italy to life on the Gold Coast. Nestled on Ashmore Road in Bundall, we are more than just a restaurant; we are a culinary and cultural destination that has been charming diners since our establishment in 2018.

Our story

Bambino Ristorante was born out of a passion for three things: food, hospitality, and entertainment. Our owner, Max Tu, hails from Taiwan and brings a world of experience in the hospitality industry. After arriving on the Gold Coast in 2014, Max recognised the potential for a unique dining experience that combined exquisite Italian dishes with live musical performances. It was this vision that led to the creation of Bambino Ristorante—a place where guests can savour a delicious meal while enjoying live music, singing and dancing.

Our name, “Bambino,” which means “child” in Italian, reflects our commitment to nurturing and showcasing young local talents. We provide a stage for budding musicians to share their gifts with our patrons, creating an atmosphere that is both entertaining and family-friendly.

Our venue

Step inside Bambino Ristorante, and you’ll find yourself transported to the heart of Italy. Our classic fit-out exudes warmth and hospitality, with crisp white tablecloths, black leather seating, crushed velvet and moody lighting setting the perfect backdrop for your dining experience. As you approach our restaurant, you can’t miss the bright “Italian restaurant” sign and the vintage red car protruding from our façade adds a touch of nostalgia.

Culinary creations

Our menu is a culinary journey through the regions of Italy. We take pride in serving authentic Italian dishes prepared with the finest ingredients and a touch of love. Whether you’re indulging in Nonna’s veal and pork meatballs in a rich sauce or savouring our 18-hours slow-cooked beef cheeks, each dish is crafted to perfection. And don’t forget our extensive pizza and pasta selection, featuring delightful creations like the Gamberetta pizza and truffle pappardelle.
