Just heard about this place. Has any chowhound tried it? Also I could not get the wines to come up on their website, www.barbambino.com

    i just went and they were getting slammed. we arrived around 9:30 and got seated by 10. very well-intentioned place and i think that they will do very well, but they need a bit of time, just to get the service down.
    short synposis: assorted breads-basic, but good
    pappa al pomodoro -will be smashing when tomatoes come into season
    house cured salumi plate-beautiful, delicate, delish
    pappardelle con coniglio-rabit sugo-pretty great, pappardelle had an unusual texture that was pleasing
    buccatini al gangiovechhio-proscuiotto, cauliflower, currants-good but not well integrated
    mushrooms al forno-not my favorite

    i would say that desserts were lacking, wine was great, food was good, and their pastas were well-cooked and that ain't easy. i

    i think in the coming weeks they will get the kinks worked out and it'll be great
