We have never been disappointed with a meal at Lil' Baci on Queen East. When out of towners visit, it is a go-to for us. Good wine selection and very reasonably priced.
This is my fifth or sixth time here, and every time I love it. The food is always perfect. Great brunch menu and the pizza is always cooked to perfection. The servers are always easy going and very attentive.
Overall my husband and I weren't overly impressed, although the pizza was solid. Not at the level of terroni and pizza libretto, but good. But if you don't want pizza, the apps and sides were expensive for what they were. The charcuterie / cheese tray was disappointing - tasteless provolone cheese with two meats that seemed like grocery cold cuts.
This will be my new casual Italian go-to spot. Exceptional risotto special. Friendly attentive staff. Look forward to returning.
Love the food and the atmosphere was good, I would recommend this place
This site allowed me to book at 11:00 am, but the restaurant didn't open until 12:00 that day.
Been coming here for awhile and for good reason. Great food, thin crust pizzas and generous portions. Great casual place where you feel at home. From the moment we leave, I'm looking forward to the next time!
Honestly.. I traveled from the other side of Toronto to meet a friend here. Best Italian I have had in a while! We tried the Pizza, Pasta and all of their appetizer specials. Great find! Love the patio! Will definitely be back soon.
We went in a Sunday around 2pm for a late lunch. We were seated at least 20min before we were even offered anything to drink. When I stopped a server to ask if we could order drinks he said 'not from me I'm not your server'.
Finally we ordered and finally the food came and it was just average.
Went to Lil Baci for the first time last weekend. The service was appalingly slow...our waitress seemed to be having long conversations with some tables and ignoring others. The food portions were very inconsistent. My friend and I ordered the same pasta dish and his was quite a bit smaller than mine. He left the restaurant still feeling hungry. Another friend ordered the pasta special and her portion was so huge she couldn't eat half of it. Overall the experience was just okay...I likely won't return.
