Il Bambino is a casual Italian spot in Astoria that specializes in paninis on freshly made ciabatta. We particularly enjoy the ones with cured meat, like the speck with apricot butter, apple, and goat cheese. The sandwiches here aren’t very filling, so get one of the huge salads or some crostinis on the side. Il Bambino looks like a coffee shop from the outside, but the dark interior and nice backyard make it a casual date option with charcuterie, crostinis, and wine.
