Shogo Ban, a college student from Fukuoka, likes to cook. Thanks to the owner of the restaurant where he works part-time, he finds himself working at the line of Roppongi's best Italian restaurant, Trattoria Baccanale, and discovers that the real deal isn't quite as easy as he'd thought. The manga follows Ban as he struggles to keep up with the hectic workload and his co-workers, along with issues outside the kitchen like his relationship with his girlfriend Eri, who he left behind in Fukuoka.
This manga is flippin' great.
It always seemed interesting, as I like cooking manga. But I didn't expect myself to plow through that first volume so quickly.
I agree that this is a great manga!
I really like the main character. He seems pretty easy to relate too which is something I like. Also, bonus points for it being about an Italian restaurant (Italian food is the best ever!). Though the volume covers make me so hungry...
Haha yeah, Italian food rocks!
My gf is Italian and a great cook, so I get to eat a lot of it.
I love this manga. Some years ago I watched the japanese drama. I loved it *__*
And it's so fun when they talk in italian
Seems like Anonymous spore has decided to make super fast releases for the end of the manga. I just discovered it a fews days ago, and I must said I read the 150 chapters in no time.
I'm really curious to see how it can end in so few chapters now, there seems to be so much other things Ban could learn.

There's a sequel to Bambino!, called Bambino! Secondo that is still ongoing.
Ah thanks for the info, do you enjoy it as much as you did for Bambino ?

I honestly didn't even know that there existed a thread xD
Its a great read. Started a while ago, has a shounen flavour in it. So in 3 chapter the first part is going to end..I assume the second part is about the new store and its adventure?
Normally I have no trouble finding informations on a manga series. I guess this one is just not popular enough,. Too bad though. But I guess if I would search better I could find something xD
btw great work from Anonymous Spore. I thank them for their fast great releases.
For finding a thread, I use the Manga search tool at the top of the website. The tab subject generally links to the thread directly. If there is no tab subject you can still search the manga in the database, if a thread exists, there is a link in the discuss column
Anonymous spore does indeed a great job, I hope she continues with the sequel (now that I know there is one :-) and since i doubt it will be ever licenced now, even in French.
Edit : Sadly it seems she won't do it (T-T)

I already searched for a thread, but couldn't find one. Even though there were some search results. I guess I must have either accidentally skipped the thread or made typing error xD. But I didn't tried the datebase. thx 4 tip :P
Anyway quite unexpected turn of events. I knew there would be some sort of event involving around Yasu and Asuka, worst case a accident -> coma. But this was not within my expectations. One chapter to go, tomorrow will be the final release.
AnonSpore is not going to do Bambino! Secondo unless someone volunteers to edit, etc. fix up the raws, I asked in the comments, it also says something similar in the FAQ, AnonSpore is just one person.
P.S: Guys, please don't spoil the ending for others :P
Ye' i read the comments as well. too bad actually. I don't think any other group is going to scanlate the series, at least for a while.
I must say Im pretty impressed by Ano.Spor, I didn't know "the group" was just one person until today.

Well it's complete without being complete so it's a bit frustating. Still it was a nice read, so I would recommend it but you have to be warned that it does not end properly.
Barbapapa I guess it is too mainstream for Mangascreener :-)

And I forgot, if you like food manga The Solitary Gourmand from Taniguchi is really nice and it's a single volume so it's a quick read.
