amazing foodThe food was amazing as always and I can't wait to take my family back!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup Dining ConvenientWe visited Baci for the 3 or 4th time on Mother's Day. We had 9 people in our group along with a <1 year old baby. The restaurant was very accommodating for our large group and gave us a corner table so that our smallest member would not disturb any of the other restaurant guests. The wait-staff was very attentive and provided excellent service even to such a large group. The food was fantastic and did not take any longer than would be normally expected even though the restaurant was full and we were a large group expecting our food at the same time. Great service, great food and a very convenient location will have us coming back again!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!I took another group of family members that were visiting us and had another fantastic dining experience at Cafe Baci! We all LOVED our meals especially the Veal Trio, Chefs Tasting and the fresh Grouper. The service was exceptional from the owner who is very hands on to all of the waitstaff! Thank you all for making us feel like family and for your wonderful hospitality!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMA 6 Star Dining ExperienceThis has to be one of the finest restaurants in Sarasota and surrounding areas. After a very warm reception, we were seated at very nice table. Soon our server arrived, took our cocktails order, and then freshly made breadsticks were served along with an antipasto sampling, and a delicious pesto for bread dipping. For my entree, I selected the fresh fish catch of the day, grouper, and my guest the lasagne bolognese. This was one of the best grouper entrees ever, beautifully prepared and plated. The lasagne was delicious. most of the pasta is fresh made on site. The owner, brought each of us a cordial of well chilled homemade lemoncello. It doesn't get any better than this. We can't wait till our next visit to Sarasota to return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNever a doubtAs always, Cafe Baci was wonderful. Good staff, my wife says good cosmos and always good food.

We got a great antiipasta to start (it is definitely smart to book your reservation through Opentable...and almost every table was filled). We split the Baci salad, which they were great about pre-splitting for us, and it was delicious. I had the wild mushroom ravioli and my husband had the eggplant Parmesan. Both were excellent. We were stuffed, so no dessert for us, but ended the evening with a cordial.

The food was excellent. Our only complaint was that we felt rushed through our meal. Our entrees came just as we finished our first course. Our first course was actually removed from in front of us because the entrees were ready. They were served at the same time as the wine which had not had time to chill properly.
As the restaurant began to empty, the tempo slowed some. We spoke with our server about being rushed and she apologized. She advised us to make it clear to the server that we did not want to be hurried right from the time we were seated.
The worse part with being rushed is that we did not have time to fully savor the wonderful food. We will be back.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have heard about Cafe BaciWe have heard about Cafe Baci and driven by hundreds of times, I am sorry it took so long for us to stop in.
