Like a showgirl in a grocery store, pizza is a saucy treat that shows a little leg in the name of tasteful entertainment. Dazzle your senses with today's Groupon: for $8, you get $16 worth of pizza and more at Bambino's East Coast Pizzeria in Spring Valley.
Bambino's East Coast Pizzeria brings a bite of Bean Town to local pizza palates with a menu of brick-oven-baked pies, piping-hot calzones, and hulking plates of pasta. Shake a hand-tossed slice ($2+) or nurture a soon-to-be food baby with a "monstah" two-slice deal and a fountain drink ($5). Diners can decorate lunches or rec rooms with more than a dozen fresh toppings ($0.50+). Calzones anchor plates better than your Leaning Tower of Pisa snow globe ($12+), and piles of penne pasta fluidly mingle amid an Old World recipe of marinara sauce and italian bread ($5). Classic appetizers of zucchini sticks ($5) and fried dough ($3) complement a submarine-sandwich board loaded with appetizing artillery such as the steak bomb, brimming with cheese, onions, peppers, and mushrooms ($7/$9). In addition to its regular menu, Bambino's East Coast Pizzeria boasts its own backlog of kid-friendly eats ($3+).
Eatery operators Matt and Liz DeFilippo bring their Bostonian roots to the exposed-brick dining digs of their pizzeria. Relics from Fenway Park dot the space, along with flat-screen televisions, checkerboard tablecloths, and faded memories of Babe Ruth's curse.
