About Us

Shelley and Rick, the owners of Cucina Bambini, opened up the Willow Glen store in 2008. The idea grew out of their love of food, as well as a background in business and education. Before Cucina Bambini, the couple operated the successful Ballard Montessori School for nearly a decade. Cucina Bambini is now in its eleventh year, with two locations and more on the way.

Shelley oversees the business with the help of our amazing staff, while Rick helps out when he is not busy with his day job as an intellectual property attorney. Both of them grew up in the Bay Area and raised two children, Ryan and Maddie, both of whom are actors in New York and still help with social media and other marketing aspects of the business.
