The smart team at BAK are behind this entirely different offspring. Housed in a double-fronted canal-house, the space is broken up by stairs, mezzanines and walls, which works rather well to create a feeling of intimacy.
Where BAK is all about the tasting menu, Bambino is about having fun. Sharing plates come in various sizes, but all are extraordinarily delicious, with a modern European, seasonal focus. Arroz with rabbit, or clams in white wine have been recent hits. You can sit here all night, happily grazing with friends.

Bambino Wine List
In keeping with its super-informal style, there’s no list as such – just a clutch of chalked-up by-the-glass options which change daily. Expect cloudy col fondo Prosecco, orange wine and upcoming names from the south of France or the north of Italy.
If you want a bottle, the staff will advise, or simply point you at the two large wine fridges which house most of their stock. There are many treats within, occupying a similar territory to the list at BAK restaurant (but with smaller mark-ups).
Wine Tasting at Bambino
