Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Was looking forward to trying some different flavor's, all we got was burnt pizza! Disappointed as Bamvino was a go to date night choice for us and had regularly been a choice for family celebrations.

Did not accommodate the range of dietary needs, forced it group into a set menu . Looked at the value of items and it came to $350 they wanted to charge $500. Manager was rude and unprofessional and made us feel so unwelcome. Avoid this...place!More

Ate here with a large group recently. Some of us had entrees, others just pizza, some had desserts. Me...I just had pizza & dessert. Looking at those who ordered entrees I was surprised at how small they were considering the price. The pizzas were really...nice, a good size for 1, decent toppings & quite yummy! But the base was soggy and by the time you're up to the last couple of slices the base is even beyond soggy - I'd call it wet. Nice tasting though but I like a crisp base. 1 point deducted from the 5 maximum. I had a waffle for dessert which was totally awesome. The crunchy walnuts were great! Pretty small though. I found that overall it is overpriced. Most pizzas were around the $29 mark and as a pizza afficionado I tend to notice pizzas on menus when dining out. The Bamvino prices are generally higher than I see elsewhere & with that sogginess it makes the value even worse. The dessert was $14 and for that price I expect waffles (plural) which it says on the menu. Instead I got waffle singular with a single scoop of ice cream and the accompanying sauce & walnuts. Another point down for the prices, so Bamvino gets a 3 point rating. Service was excellent. We were even allowed to pay for our meals individually.More

Tried Bamvino’s for the first time. Great atmosphere. Staff were very helpful and service very fast. Arancini balls were delicious. Pizza toppings were nice but base was very average tasting and was rock hard on the outside and totally uncooked in the middle half. Pumpkin...spinach salad was uninspiring with mostly spinach leaves, crunchy pumpkin pieces, a tiny smattering of goats cheese and truffle oil as the dressing. Sorry but we both came away feeling pretty disappointed with our meal.More

Menu needs changing. The calamari was worse than eating elastic bands, sent it back twice, did not want to try it again. Wrong pizza was delivered so had to wait while our friends ate their meal. Ordered the $36 duck pizza hardly any duck on...it, would never have known it was duck, certainly not worth that amount of money. Overall very poor visit. Have been many times, always felt the menu needed a change but this time very disappointed. .More

Fabulous hideaway for traditional Italian dishes including superb pizzas or just to the deli for the exotic spices to make your next Indian diner at home, pick up some of the exotic collection of chocolates while sipping a great coffee.

We had a combined 80th and 30th birthday dinner at Bamvino last night with some discerning out of town relatives. We've dined at Bamvino many times over the years and always enjoyed it, but you knocked it out of the park last night guys! Fabulous...night all round. Every entree was superb (I recommend the Haloumi and the Chicken Wings). Every main was excellent, the pastas and the pizzas (BEST pizza crust I've had). The wine was superb, the coffee was superb. Your staff were attentive and personable. We brought our own birthday cake and they happily provided plates and spoons - no extra charge. Best of all, the bill at the end of the night was very reasonable. Well done people. Keep kicking goals. You are fast becoming our reliable GO TO restaurant on the Coast.More

I booked this restaurant for my birthday dinner, after a while of looking. The food was very nice and the service was pretty good. I was happy they could accommodate my vegan guests (they were pretty happy about ensuring they could eat). I am vegetarian,...and while I really enjoyed their margarita pizza (it is a really nice pizza) I asked if they could modify the tasting plate to remove the cured meats and add some extra items. To their credit, they were happy to do so, but I was just a bit disappointed with it, as it was basically the same thing just took off the meat. The cheese was nice though. Honestly, these are just minor things, overall the service and food kept me and my guests happy. Would definitely be back - just hope they could make squeeze some more vegetarian options on the menu.More

Hi Guyb6489. I can see you have had a few replies to your question already. Bamvino isn't BYO, they like to sell their own wine. They do have an extensive wine list with premium wines.
