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.
