Always consistently delicious. The wait staff is always attentive.
Extremely disappointed. I have been going the Cafe Baci for over 20 years with nary a complaint until this last visit. Terrible service, extremely slow, ignored requests, never asked if we wanted dessert, coffee or after dinner drinks. Although the food was good the portions were scant. I am hoping this is a fluke, but a very disappointing experience overall.
First time experience. Leo, the on duty manager, was fantastic, courteous and professional.
Excellent food and service
Always a fantastic experience when we have dinner here! The food is amazing, I LOVE their homemade Marinara sauce, the special touches the servers give you and they do make you feel like a guest in their house! We go for special occasions since they are a drive for us, but the drive is worth it and this time it was date night with my husband! When the dinner was over I wanted to do it all over again because the food is THAT yummy!
We are frequent visitors to Cafe Baci for special occasions or just a good meal! We took out of town visitors this time and so enjoyed being able to have a good conversation along with a good meal. The waitstaff is competent and especially so when we are assigned Suzanne.
Cafe Baci is always reliable. Always crowded in season. The wait staff are most accommodating to special requests. Not cheap, you pay for every change, but we will continue to be loyal patrons as they are, overall, a good place for dinner and meeting friends.
Food and service were great ..Extensive wine selection..
It was amazing the food, the service all were outstanding! Can’t wait to go back!
Again Cafe Baci wins our praise. My husband and I were there twice this week, and both times were just right! Delicious food, prompt service, and lovely ambiance. A Sarasota Gem!
Food was excellent. Atmosphere lovely. Our server was outstanding.
Loved the dinner special; house made fettucini alfredo with seafood. Perfectly cooked.
Totally outstanding service from several personnel. Friendly and attentive but not intrusive.
Will be back often.
I came here with my boyfriend for Valentine’s Day. Even though they did not take reservations and it was first come first serve, the wait was not long at all. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious authentic Italian with huge portions. One plate can serve two people. Our waiter was very nice, funny and attentive. They always make sure to fill your water glasses. I will definitely be going back soon!
Always enjoy the evening based on good food at reasonable prices and ambiance.
Our second time at Cafe Baci. This time was Valentine’s Day and it was very nice. Crazily busy. Baci sachets are to die for, veal delicious and the Francais grouper excellent!! Terry Anderson, our asked for waitress is outstanding. Makes the meal even more wonderful. My 85 yr young mother loves this restaurant! Keep on being what you are known for. Fabulous!!
We eat at Cafe Baci frequently and have always been pleased with the food, the service, and the ambiance. Often we bring our friends from out-of-town who are happy to be introduced to this Sarasota gem of a restaurant!
Recommended by a friend. We were so pleased, we are now regulars. It is not advertised as upscale but is more so than most that do.
This is a great place for Italian cuisine. The food is delicious and the portions can be large. We had calamari and shared it. It is enough for four people, as an appetizer, so we took some home and reheated it the next day. It was still excellent. It is an amazing value.
Pleasant atmosphere, efficient friendly staff.
Little or no wait for seating with reservation.
Always a great meal. Highly recommend veal three ways to the flounder. Both are outstanding but so many great choices!
