Relax and enjoy your stay with us. Savor the delicate flavors of history. Close your eyes, breathe deeply….you are in Italy, if but only for a moment.
Great service. Great food.
A neighborhood favorite.
This was our first time to Cafe Baci and we will be back. Naomi our waitress was great.... very attentive and upbeat even with our many requests and changes.
The pistachio crusted sea bass was very good. Portions were ample. My husband couldn’t finish his shrimp scampi. The goat cheese shrimp special appetizer was artfully presented and very very tasty. Shared salads were split for us before they were brought to the table. It was a quiet, warm ambiance decorated like a Tuscany Villa. It was a very enjoyable evening.
The food as usual was delicious with generous portions. The only negative was the temperature. We were seated in a small alcove booth in front of restaurant. Not far from kitchen area. Very warm and a little uncomfortable because of that. Asked them to increase air conditioning. Did not help. Maybe a small circular fan over head would help this situation Will not sit there again. Otherwise, all good! LE
Excellent restaurant..we are here often & the never dissapoint
My cousins came to town for a few days, we had dinner at Cafe Baci this past Tuesday. Calamari was to die for. I had vitiello abondanza excellent, my cousin had seafood and she substituted broccoli for the pasta. The men had veal sorrentino and lasagna. Everything was excellent.
Great meal in a beautiful setting. Celebrated a birthday. Because we made a reservation on line, was given a free appetizer. Food was to die for. Very pleasant decorations. Great waiter. Cannot say anything negative.
A friend took me to lunch to celebrate my Birthday. The restaurant not only sprinkled our table with Birthday glitter, but treated us to spumoni icecream! Lunch was delicious too!
I have reviewed C B so many times. It is super and always has been and will be.
As always, an excellent experience. We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff made us feel special. We even got a dessert with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the rim of the plate! The food is excellent, and though a little pricey, not exorbitant. Definetly a place to enjoy northern Italian cuisine.
We love Cafe Baci! It’s one of the few restaurants in Sarasota County that is ALWAYS consistent. It’s also a great place to talk with your dinner guests. It is quiet. No echos like many of the restaurants. We have been going for 7 years. Their early bird 4-5 PM (I think that’s the time. ) is the best deal in town. It is the only place we can find real delicious spumoni. Add it to your list of restaurants to frequent.
A lovely welcome from very friendly staff .
Pasta fagoli was delicious, followed by nut crusted fish . This is a traditional Italian with plenty of specials.
Exceptional value for money
Not a fancy modern restaurant but would definitely go back
Never disappoints! One of our favorite places to dine. Great specials every night .
We enjoy coming here because the food is always good and the atmosphere lovely.
We are semi-regulars at Café Baci because the food is reliable and the service is good. It has a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. It's a good place for a meal and quite conversation. It's not a gourmet restaurant but the food is tasty and plentiful, and the wine is inexpensive.
Suzanne is great. So glad she is “our waitress”! Food is always dependably good.
Poor service from our waiter and lasagna was very disappointing and husband had veal that he had a hard time cutting with a butter knife ! Won’t go there again
Susie is the best! Friendly and comfortable. Great food.
We have written superlative reviews for Cafe Baci. It is difficult to find any fault at all with anything.
The tables are set beautifully. The service is perfection. The food is outstanding. The bread and breadsticks are divine. Even the inexpensive wine is noteworthy. Kudos Robert and staff.
We just love how special the staff treats us every time we go. Leo is a treasure.
always returning with new friends and then they go back again on their own or bring more friends. never disappointed.
Our “servers” were outstanding and the food was amazing...especially the gnocchi’s!!!
Nice to be able to enjoy a meal, with friends, speaking at a normal conversational level. Service was paced perfectly. Find dining at a reasonable cost.
This restaurant had a feel of a great neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food was the best Italian we've had here! Staff was superb. We will be returning for sure.
First visit. Will definitely go back. Everything was first class.
Consistently excellent. Service very good and very pleasant maitre 'd
Never experienced a bad meal there; service and management make you feel like a guest. Menu basic Italian but specials are worth it; portions are generous.
Fabulous great great
Consistently very good Italian dishes and staff that tries to please diners
Went out for an evening with my teen kids and in law’s for dinner. Very mice staff great food. I had the mushroom ravioli and it was great. My group also had pollo all’s francese, gnocchi,fettuccine Alfredo. It was all great.
We have been coming since 1997 & always enjoy our food!
My wife and I ate dinner at Cafe Baci for our one year anniversary, the staff, food, ambiance and attention to detail was amazing. For what you get, the price is way too low in my opinion, 5 stars in my book.
The staff makes you feel special when you make a reservation through Open Table. It starts with a free antipasto and ends with a delicious piece of tiramisu cake. The wait staff is friendly, experienced, helpful, quick, knowledgeable, and gracious. Our server, Suzanne, was delightful. I hope she always takes care of us when we eat there.
The lasagna was cooked to perfection. We give our highest recommendation to Cafe Baci.
The entire dining express a pleasure. The hostess was friendly and personable and our waitress Christina was charming efficient and helpful. The food was amazing a special appetizer of shrimp and goat cheese was the perfect bite. Twin lobster tails were some of the best ever, and the veal dishes were expertly prepared. We have been visiting this are for years and over our meals we discussed why we never stopped. As silly as it sounds it is the 1980’s style marquee style sign that made us think of a passé pizzeria. Fortunately a google search has turned us into repeat customers.
The food was excellent and if you do your reservation thru open table you might get a free on the house appetizer.
Great food loved the complimentary antipasti for booking online. Focaccia and breadsticks were delicious. Our dinners were yummy too.
Food was wonderful and service was outstanding. Thank you Leo and our server! We have found a new goto spot.
Loved the food! Outstanding!!
Service was fabulous. Our party of eight enjoyed their meal and agreed our waitress was excellent
Great service, food outstanding. We frequent many times. Been a patron for years.
We have been going to Café Baci for quite a few years now and always enjoy our visits to this great restaurant. They have a very nice menu with food for most tastes. The management is very friendly and the service is always outstanding - staff checking on you throughout the meal. We will continue to go back to one of our favorite Sarasota restaurants for years to come.
Always have a great meal at Cafe Baci. I recommend the Cafe Baci Redfish dinner.
