Bar Bambino

I was extremely excited to try Bar Bambino in San Francisco's Mission District.  I had heard they have their own homemade gluten free pasta - having never enjoyed homemade gluten free pasta this was to be a real treat!

Although there is no gluten free menu at Bar Bambino, everyone is very aware of which dishes are gluten free or can be made gluten free and which ones are off limits.  I ended up having a special vegetarian gluten free pasta dish made for me.  It was homemade gluten free pappardelle with roasted squash in garlic and oil.  The gluten free pasta was amazing!  The portions were fairly small but the pasta tasted so fresh and delicious!

For dessert, I enjoyed the Schwarzwalder with Liquored Cherries - Bar Bambino's version of a Black Forest Cake.  Their menu describes it as "boozy cherries, on top of a knock-your-socks-off TCHO chocolate cake, alongside whipped Kirsch cream."

Bar Bambino is ranked as one of the Top 100 Bay Area Restaurants by the San Francisco Chronicle.  For more information, please visit their website at or visit them at:
