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.
Excellent food and great service. Must visit if in town
Always a go to for my family and I, especially when we have friends in town. Great portions, excellent service and food!!
If you are from New Jersey, New York regions, you know very good Italian food and this is the only restaurant in the Sarasota , Florida area that is like eating back in 'Jersey'. Every dish on the menu is great but I especially like every Wednesday when they serve Ossobuco, fabulous. Upon seating a very tasty antipasto is served. My wife loved the chicken francese over linguini . It was our anniversary and they served a complimentary tiramisu. The maître d' immediately seated us and the service was warm and friendly. We loved the atmosphere, it was a real spacious restaurant, not a store front. We love every time we go and always take our out of state guests there.
Cafe Baci never disappoints! Fish was delicious, as always. A lovely birthday dinner with complimentary tiramisu.
Excellent service and attention. Food was great and everyone enjoyed themselves. We did not feel rushed and were able to chat and relax. Manager was superb as was our waitress!
This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in Sarasota but the food the other night was way off. Veal parm was terrible. Even their red tomato sauce was bland and bad. Please step it up and do some quality control so we could want to return.
Have been there many times & food & service has been consistently good.
There were seven of us and we all ordered something different. Everyone enjoyed their food choices. Service was good and the complimentary extras were great.
The food here is consistently good. Have eaten here several times trying various items and have never been disappointed. Can’t even pick a favorite as everything is delicious. Try the tiramisu even if you can’t eat another thing. The best ever
We were there for Savor Sarasota. Service was excellent, food was very good. Will go back!
Service was amazing!! Management was for hospitable. We will be back!!! Food was amazing.
This was our 3rd time dining at Cafe Baci. Each time we have dined here we have been very happy with both our food and the service.
love it super care super food great service we love it
Always great food and great service at Cafe Baci. Our favorite restaurant in Sarasota.
absolutely outstanding in every regard. Super food, great service from waiter Henry...and great value. Virtually everything was fantastic.
We enjoyed the ‘Savor Sarasota’ offering of their consistently good dishes. Thanks so much for participating!
The staff is particularly attentive. They take care of your needs. We had a 9 year old girl with us. She is very mature for her age. They had accommodations for a child.
The food was delicious. Cafe Baci is our favorite Italian restaurant.
We love the free antipasto that we were given when we sat down. It is special for patrons who make reservations through Open Table.
We used to like Baci, but no more. Service was sketchy, orders were wrong, not "allowed" to sub spinach for green beans. It took an hour to get any food. This was my mom's 88th birthday dinner. Huge disappointment. Told maitre'd, and he apologized, and gave us $20 off. My dinner was not edible, and cost $24, among other problems. I doubt we would go back.
The food was delicious and the service excellent, we have been there many times and plan to come back soon. I have never had a bad meal there in the 18 years I have been going. I would give it a 5 star rating. Thank you still being here in our area.
The 4 of us enjoyed our dinner at Baci The meals were flavorful and above average portions. We will definitely return to the restaurant to try more of the choices on the menu.
Amazing experience for our anniversary! we go every year we visit Sarasota and the food is always great. The service is amazing and they treat you like family. Sauce/pasta is amazing and the specials on the menu are also great. An absolute 10!
I've been going to Cafe Baci forever. The whole experience is dependable. The food perfect. It's one of my all time favorites.
HAVE BEEN IN THE AREA SINCE 1989 AND SHORTLY AFTER, WE FOUND cAFE BACI AND IT HAS BEEN ONE OUR FAVORITES SINCE THEN.
Always a good choice when looking for authentic Italian cuisine in Sarasota. We dine here frequently. The menu isn't extensive but it is varied, with various chicken, seafood, veal, and pasta offerings, plus salad and soup choices and chef specials. Service is attentive, friendly, and efficient. Prices are moderate. Food is tastefully prepared. The lasagna, in particular, is excellent, as is the fettucine alfredo. Highly recommended for nice Italian style dining.
First time to Café Baci. First thing that comes to mind is great service. Food was very good, I especially enjoyed my Baci Sachets appetizer. My husband had the lasagna, which he thought was very good. Nice atmosphere, quiet - good for conversation. Recommend.
Grand daughter’s Sweet Sixteen dinner. Server was outstanding as was food and atmosphere. Baci always is a top notch.
Service was slower than usual as we have eaten there many times.
First time at Cafe Baci and it was a very nice evening with friends, extensive wine list and very good selection of Italian dishes.
Very attentive staff ready to take care of all your dining needs, will be coming back soon.
Wonderful food -all 4 entrees were different & delicious. Service was great, as usual.
My 99 year old Great Aunt and I wanted a quiet evening with good food and good service.. this is The Place! Forget the chains, go to Cafe Baci for real Italian food and wonderful service. I had the pasta with seafood.. beautiful scallops, shrimp etc in a white wine sauce.. Auntie had the flounder which she proclaimed to be "yummy"
Will definitely eat here on my next visit
We always enjoy coming to Cafe Baci. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming with excellent service. One of our favorite places to go at any time.
Unfortunately many of the new restaurants do not understand these basics. They are built to expand the noise so that you cannot have a conversation with your friends. When even the waiter or waitress cannot hear what you are saying, it is time for a major change in consideration for customers. We never return to such places.
Good service and great food!
First time there and I guarantee it won't be the last. Food was great as was the service! Highly recommend this place.
We always enjoy meals at Cafe Back. We generally go at lunch time. The lunch menu is very reasonable. The Flounder Fransese is my personal favorite but there are many delicious options on the menu. If you make a reservation through Open Table you get a free Antipasto plate.
We were seated right away in a requested area. They put sparkles in the table for my friends birthday. Excellent service and friendly staff!
Enjoyed our dinner experience very much. Service was very good and there was a very friendly atmosphere throughout. We buy the 'Eat Like A Local' certificates and always look for Bari's, as we like it. Often friends come from North to visit and they always want to go to Cafe Bari's! Of course, we do too!
Thank you for making memories for us!
Great food and staff
Good Italian food, but nothing special. I had nice veal marsala
Food was worse I had had there. I always love it but I am afraid it was over cooked. The air conditioner was broken and it was quite uncomfortable. I can only imagine what it was like in kitchen.
