Excellent food and very helpful staff. Thank you
Bombetta is a secret diamond on the edge of Wanstead. We travel from Walthamstow to get to this slice of Italy and feel as though we are on holiday. Food, atmosphere and staff are second to none. It has vibe, produce and friendly faces. The chef made a few appearances to talk us through a few of his dishes and to slip them to us, which were delightful. Talk about passion. The waiting staff were a real treat, with genuine warmth and care. It was my husband and my first date post kids in a while and it was a perfect evening largely because we love great restaurants and fantastic food. Bombetta never disappoints. 5 stars Xxx Xx
A wonderful local with massive choice for vegetarians and vegan options too. Puglian food is rich in simple punchy flavours, and their fava bean puree with braised wild greens is a prime example - as is the oven-cooked cauliflower 'roast'.
A lovely evening. The atmosphere and food were top notch once again and the service just right. First time we have been seated at the counter/bar and it was actually fine. Looking forward to the next visit!
Lovely restaurant, great atmosphere and delicious food. Only gripe is that we waited a long time in-between our last starter plate and main - about 30 minutes - and in fact, it had been forgotten. But they were very apologetic and took it off the bill in the end.
Great from start to finish - as always
Lovely staff - seriously can’t fault! My only complaint would be too much food, ha! Great break from chain restaurants with excellent selection for vegetarians. Had an espresso martini to finish and it was made perfectly.
Enjoyed all the food - bombetta are expensive for the amount you get. Staff were really friendly, although service could have been a tiny bit quicker; and would have preferred not to have been seated by the door, it was a bit drafty.
Overpriced food - lazy presentation - no finesse. Do not waste your money on this restaurant.
Great no fuss dining. Simple Italian food with great flavour. Just how it should be.
Superb, as always. Fabulous food, service, lovely welcome. Love this place
Fantastic food served by the friendliest staff I have ever had the pleasure of being served by.
Great new find for us this place. Super all round. I can't find fault and look forward to visiting again.
Fabulous food, very different to your average Italian. Great flavours from the sharing plates, main to dessert. I will be back.
Excellent food will definitely be going back soon.
We re visited this place after quite a long break and realised what we had been missing
Fab service and amazing food
Menu changes every six weeks and think we will be visiting every week!
The staff were great fun and really helpful
Second visit to restaurant and we weren’t disappointed. Wonderful food and superb service . We all had a lovely evening 😊
Excellent food. Never disappoints always a new menu too.
Always the best service. The waiters can never do enough.
Fantastic lunch, as ever. Food and service both of the highest standard. Thank you
Bombetta is such a little treasure. Food is amazing, flavoursome and creative. Favourites on this occasion, pea risotto, courgette flowers and of course the courgette fries!
Authentic Italian food with great service.
Would definitely recommend!!
Lovely lunch in the sun drinking wine and wonderful food. What could be better. Thank you Ben Milne for the extra birthday money off.
Lovely restaurant - fantastic food and great service. Can’t ask for better.
The service was wonderful, one of the best restaurant experiences I have encountered and it was accompanied by good food and fantastic wine. I will definitely return!
Fabulous food, such amazing quality I couldn’t recommend enough
Cute restaurant that makes great tasting food conveniently located next to Epping forest so a great place to go to after a walk
Amazing restaurant with lovely staff and unique fantastic food
Once again a fantastic meal. The steak was out of this world highly recommended
the service was fantastic, food was tasty, location was also perfect
Fantastic food. Great ingredients. Really tasty.
Quirky place, quite small, literally next to Snaresbrook station. Food very good and authentic Italian. Service Very good. Food was Italian tapas. The Bombettas were amazing but served with bread. It is quite pricey but very interesting. I would go again.
Fabulous, as always. Sit at the counter to watch the chefs and to get food envy when you see what you didn’t order!
Rump steak so awful and the waiter was aware as he took it off the bill with out is asking
I6 wad warm and welcome only thing the menu price is different at the restaurant
First time visit and it was lovely, food atmosphere and staff all superb and friendly. Will definitely be going back!
Fabulous, authentic tasting (simple) Italian food. Best Italian food I have had in a long time, even taking into account trips to Italy!!
Bombetta was excellent as always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Vics :-))))) We hope to have you back again really soon!
Great food, great ambiance.
Sat at the counter and the chef was so friendly. We were made to feel very welcome.
The counter is the best place in the house in our view!! Thank you so much for coming and we really appreciate the straight 5 stars!! It means a great deal to a little independent restaurant like ours :-))) We can't wait to have you back soon!
Absolutely great! Defo recommend it if you are in the area and fancy some good Italian food 😊
Emagnatelanacosa, Thanks so much for all the feedback and taking the time to do a review. Small family run businesses like ours really appreciate it when people go on line to say that they enjoyed our food! We hope to have you back in again soon and perhaps we can turn those 4 stars into 5's :-)) Speak soon, Jo & Ben
Hadn't been here for a while, seems like a new menu. It was a little difficult judging the right amount to buy and the sharing plates leaned heavily towards red meat.
The spicy Bombetta was lovely, however the accompanying sauce came after we had finished it.
The main dish I chose was not available so I selected a seafood risotto. Unfortunately the smoked fish had bones in the first mouthful which was a little off putting. Also the dish was cold by the time I came to finish it, probably because I was aware of bones in the fish. Overall the dish was a bit dull.
Even though we didn't drink or eat that much, the bill came to somewhat more than we had expected.
This was about out 6th visit here and the most disappointing.
We try to buy locally where possible so the fish is selected, smoked and prepared by Kevin at Wanstead Fish on the high rd. He is meticulous in deboning so apologies if it was off putting for you. I've seen your surname on the bookings quite a few times, so I know your a regular We don't want this experience to put you off so please email me and pop back and I'm happy to remove the cost of a risotto from your next meal. i cant put an email address on here but it is Ben @ Take care, Ben
