Whether by personal choice or due to doctor’s orders, dietary restrictions can sometimes make dining out a real challenge. If you’re plagued with food sensitivities like a gluten intolerance, there’s nothing worse than watching your friends dive face-first into a bread basket while you pick at a meager salad. Restrictive dietary preferences can be just as tough. If you’ve sworn off meat, dairy, eggs or all of the above, it can sometimes be hard to find satisfying dishes that work with your lifestyle.
Dietary restrictions can be a pain. But they don’t have to be. Word is quickly getting out that Bambinos is a great Italian restaurant in Springfield MO for everyone—and we mean everyone—to enjoy a delicious, unforgettable meal. It doesn’t matter if you’re gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan or a combination of all three. We’ve got fresh, made-from-scratch options for you to enjoy.
Although Bambinos isn’t technically a gluten-free facility (guests with celiac disease should proceed with caution) we still want to make sure our gluten-free friends have an unrivaled dining experience. Our pasta dishes can all be made with gluten-free noodles upon request, so gluten-free guests don’t have to miss a single bite of hearty Italian goodness.
On the lighter side, our pan-roasted chicken dinner special features asparagus, cherry tomatoes—and zero gluten. Our salads are also a great option for a healthy, fresh gluten-free meal. Dining with a table full of gluten-free friends? Just ask your server to hold the bread basket. For even more gluten-free fare, visit our fresh cafe concept B2 Cafe.
Vegetarian Friendly Options
Finding satisfying vegetarian and vegan cuisine is a cinch at Bambinos. Start with a meatless appetizer like our legendary spinach and artichoke dip or indulgent garlic cheese bread. For a light, zesty entree, our salads take vegetarian fare to the next level with fresh veggies and tangy, mouthwatering house dressing.
The majority of our pastas can be made meat-free upon request, and some are already made that way—take, for example, our super-satisfying portobello mushroom ravioli. Whether you’re in the mood for pasta or pizza, an ooey-gooey dessert or a fresh, healthy salad, we’ve got vegetarians covered. For guests who have taken the plunge into veganism, our appetizers remain a solid choice. Try the fresh tomato-topped bruschetta or the hummus. Our salads are also vegan-friendly—just hold the cheese.
