My boyfriend and I have never
My boyfriend and I have never been regulars anywhere but we can't help but come back to Lil' Baci every week. The food is incredible, the staff are awesome, I can't say enough good things. Last weekend I took my family there for the first time and they were blown away.

The homemade past was fantastic
The homemade past was fantastic - it just melts in your mouth. I wanted to eat everything on the menu and our entire party went home happy.

A little kiss goes a long way.
My friend and I got our Summerlicious on by trying a restaurant that has been on our 'to eat' list. Lil' Baci (meaning little kiss) lures you in slowly with satiating aromas coming from the kitchen. You are graciously welcomed in and quickly seated in the fresh open dining room like you are family. My friend and I both started with the trio of beets and goat cheese arugula salad. A lovely plate representing the essence of Italian food - a few basic good quality ingredients with very little manipulation. I had the polpettini pizza and my friend had the cavatelli with brussel sprouts, roast tomato in parmigiano broth. Molto bene! For dessert? The homemade coconut ice cream affogato (which alone requires a trip back for multiple servings).

Always a favourite.
Came here for Summerlicious and happy to see they chose items from their regular menu instead of a downgraded special menu.
Almost everything was excellent from the appetizers (Beet Salad, Polpette, Sardines) to rest of the dinner. Pizza and the Blueberry Pana Cotta were oustanding. The "Butcher's Son" steak however was a big disappointment. Unevenly cooked, overdone in most parts and still bleeding on the plate. Accompaniments did nothing for the flavour.
The service was good overall but it was a challenge to grab the server's attention at times. The long wait prevented us from ordering more drinks than we would have liked. We sat there dry for while, we only managed to get 1 1/2 orders in for our entire stay.

I came upon this restaurant while reading a review on another place in the neighbourhood. I was looking for somewhere new so decided to try it. I was very impressed with the jovial atmosphere and was even more impressed with the quality of the pizza. I live in Leslieville 2 blocks from Queen Margarita which I thought was very good but I think I have to say that the spicy sausage pizza here was superior! There is a Lil Baci near my home on Queen East so will definitely have to try that location as well.

Good food at l'll baci
The food was good, but they are always full and you are always cramped eating here. Food definitely makes up for it though. Will eat here again.

Love it here!
We ate here two weekends in a row because we thought it was so great. Food and cocktails were delicious and prices reasonable. Loved the different salad options, and the whole fish. The only complaint is that service was a bit slow - though the friendliness more than made up for it! We'll definitely be back again soon.

We dined this past Saturday evening...grabbed the last table on the patio...BONUS! The patio is really nice but the chairs are so uncomfortable. Ordered a bottle of red, which was delicious and the cured meat and cheese platter.For the price you get very little meat....and cheese for that matter definately not worth $17.00! Our entrees were delicious and the service was fantastic. We will go back for sure!

So happy to have this place in my neighbourhood. Never fails to disappoint.

Delicious Food, Casual Atmosphere
Food is always delicious. This is a fantastic neighbourhood spot, but also worth travelling a bit too in my opinion. Food is rustic Italian. Atmosphere is casual but hip

A favourite of ours!
We've been going to L'il Baci for over a year now. It's italian comfort food in a very relaxed and friendly environment. The food is honest to goodness delicious. Nothing too fussy just damn good! Our family favourite. Little guy devours their Pappardelle every time! And finishes off with their delicious desserts. Wine list is concise and you can't go wrong with anything here. Reservations definitely recommended. It's a popular spot!

Make a reservation as it gets very busy. Not good for older people who don't like noise, as it gets very loud. Food is amazing, but pasta portions are quite small.
