A long time Tucker favorite is finally in Tucker. Everyone knows Bambinelli’s, their “everyone is family” approach to service and their garlic knots could win awards. Starting as a pizzeria back in 1980, Bonnie Bambinelli brought the secrets of her grandmothers’ kitchens to the public.
Up until her death in 2019, Bonnie was a staple at the entrance of the Northlake Bambinelli’s, welcoming people and making sure their dining experience was one of comfort and tastebud delight. For 39 years she worked every day to bring the comforts of home to her customer family and raised her son Joseph by her side in the restaurant. Joseph continues the tradition and has opened additional restaurants in Roswell, Lilburn and Midtown Atlanta.
In recent years the original Bambinelli’s location on Northlake Parkway just outside the City of Tucker limits has had some difficulties with the building. Joseph saw an opportunity to relocate when the O’Charley’s on Crescent Centre Blvd. became vacant and he jumped at the chance to own their space. The kitchen was in need for expansion and upgrading and the wheels started moving in the right direction to create a modern and welcoming space. As with everything the past two years, the pandemic slowed the build out and move a little bit but the new location is now open and business is bustling.
Restaurant general manager Joe Lang shared “The Tucker community helped Bonnie raise her family and has supported her dream of this restaurant for decades. It made sense to expand our restaurant in the community we all love."
