NC Eatin': Iredell County

I Bambini Italian Restaurant
2785 Charlotte Hwy # 2785
Mooresville, North Carolina

On our way home on Sunday after the scrapbooking event, we passed through Mooresville to visit with a friend who lives there.  Funnily enough, another friend of ours from the Triangle was also visiting our Mooresville friend that day.

Our Mooresville friend had intended to try I Bambini for a while, so that’s what we did.  One friend got the Sunday champagne brunch buffet for $11.95 after being tempted by the lobster tails.  He was disappointed to figure out that the lobster tails contained only a smidge of lobster meat and mostly other stuff.  He said the rest of the buffet was fine, though he probably wouldn’t choose it again because of the price.  I had the gnocchi with alfredo sauce.  The sauce was decent, but the gnocchi was bad – very gummy.  I prefer it to be fluffy/al dente.  The local and my girl friend liked their dishes though, so it just depends on what you order whether or not you’ll enjoy your food.

Mooresville is an interesting town – it’s known as Race City, USA.  Race City, USA. It is home to more than 60 NASCAR teams and racing related businesses.  It also has two important racing museums – Memory Lane Motorsports and Historical Automotive Museum and the North Carolina Auto Racing Hall of Fame.  Additionally, there’s the NASCAR Technical Institute and a NASCAR pit crew training school.
