A modern locally owned Italian family-friendly bistro, Bam Bam Italian celebrates the Italian spirit of ‘family first’ with friendly, vibrant hospitality and fresh, seasonal Italian fare in the Dandenong Ranges.

Celebrate a quiet dinner (or those big events), and feast your way through their menu featuring antipasti, artisan pizzas, house made pasta, oven braises, and fresh salads, or simply pop in for a quick coffee, gelati or aperitivo. You’ll find Coffee Supreme on the grind, along with an ever-evolving wine, beer and cocktail list.

Surrounded by beautiful countryside and a short drive from Puffing Billy's Emerald, Lakeside, and Gembrook stations, make a day of it and visit nearby attractions such as Emerald Lake Park, Nobelius, Cardinia Reservoir, or the Eastern Dandenong Ranges Rail Trail (great for walking and cycling).

Monday is Locals Night – enjoy two courses for $30, and three for $40, and every Tuesday throughout winter enjoy free Kid's Meals- see website for terms and conditions. Wednesday is Pizza Palooza with $20 Pizzas and $10 Wines/Pints, and Thursday is Pasta and Wine Night with pasta and a glass of house wine (or Peroni) all for $30! Regular menus also available.

See the website for seasonal menus, including gluten and dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, garlic, and onion-free options. Wheelchair accessible. Covered, fenced playground, and an outdoor verandah perfect for pups!
