About Baci Abbracci

Italian for 'kisses and hugs', baci&abbracci's Neapolitan-style pizzas and "fresh", "homey" dishes merit the trip on the L. The white-washed walls of this modern Williamsburg trattoria boasts a small bar, while the sun-kissed garden is an "enticing escape." Neighborhood folk love the bread, mozzarella and pasta which are made fresh daily. Your first order of business: Ordering a Peroni or glass of Italian wine. Then dig into belly-warming dishes like calamari, red beet and goat cheese gnocchi, and wood-fired pizzas (Time Out New York's Best New Pizza Joint 2007) . Finish off with the torta della nonna, with custardy sabayon, chocolate cream piping, and crushed, toasted pistachios. As delicious as the food, is the "exceedingly friendly" staff.

Surprisingly delicious. Ambience okay. There was a problem that I'll describe below but because everything else was so good I didn't take off any stars: Even though OT offered earlier reservations and I took one (6pm, I think), I quickly got a call from the restaurant saying there wouldn't be availability till 7 b/c of a large party. I kept the rez & adjusted. Took a chance & showed up 6:40 but party still in progress. Came back at 7 and to my surprise the party had indeed just cleared out. My complaint is that the host should have thanked us for our understanding and patience and for our patronage under the circumstances. But the other virtues made up for this "sin." Will go back.

The service was really good and very friendly. The bartender was excellent. The food was just OK. Spaghetti was a bit overcooked; the risotto seemed as though it had not been seasoned at all and the salmon was overcooked. When they bring you olive oil for your bread...they bring you a brand other than your own that they sell on the premises. (We all though this was weird.) We requested a sample of theirs, which they happily brought us. It was very good. The meatballs were also very good. So -- a mixed bag.

Very good Italian food with several menu choices including pizza pasta and seafood. We had the octopus appetizer which was amazing and the black squid ink pasta with seafood also excellent. Next time we will try the pizzas which also seemed popular there with diners. The waiter was one of the best I have ever had. So attentive and eager to please. I cant remember his name but remember he was from Ecuador. Will return again!

We brought my parents here for my mother's birthday. We sat in the garden which my mother appreciated. The food was good and enough choices to please picky palates. It did get quite loud after a few other parties were seated.

Quiet, relaxing, never rushed. Cute garden out back- nothing fancy, but perfect for nice weather. Reasonably priced. We had the lamb ragu, Lamb shank, gnocchi, squid ink pasta, cheese plate, focaccia, and carbonara. Everything was delicious, even the wine which I thought was reasonably priced for a bottle too. Focaccia was more of like flat bread but it ended up being perfect with the cheese plate. Everyone in my party loved the meal and said they would come back again.

Nice place. Noise level is only moderate because there are a lot of tables in a small space. The food here is pretty darn good. Spinach ravioli is damn good. The cocktails are also very special here.

Good for a date or to bring friends from out of town to dinner.

The restaurant atmosphere was fine - as described. The food was not so wonderful. Sauces too scarce on the pasta, takeout order (pasta) was poorly prepared and very dry. The food all had a rather odd taste. Kind of disappointed in this one - particularly given the "reviews"

8 at our table were happy with pizzas, pastas, soup and salad and wine. We have eaten here many times and food is usually out-of-this-world. This time it was fine (and nothing wrong with that. )
Will definitely return and hope for a superlative dinner experience.

Baci and Abbraci is my neighborhood staple and go-to for any occasion. The food is consistently outstanding and reasonably priced. I highly recommend the Gnocci Sorrentina and Insalata Estiva. The clientele is always on point and accommodating. Love this place!

Authentic Italian food at reasonable prices. We went for New Years Eve with a price fixed menu of 65 dollars for 3 courses. Great selections and really great food. From start to finish we enjoyed our meal and were impressed overall. We will go back again and try their regular menu in the future. Service was also impeccable.

Last minute New Years Eve reservations. Absolutely amazed at how good the food was here at Baci Abbracci. From the appetizers to dessert it was all delicious. Service was great from when we entered up until we left. Will definitely be recommending this restaurant to many friends and family members! Thank you Baci Abbbracci for a great NYE dinner.

Restaurant super sympa ! Les pâtes sont très très bonnes ! Le service agréable. Les prix ne sont pas choquants (comptez jusqu'à $13-19 pour le plat.
Beaucoup trop bruyant dans la pièce principales par contre ! Heureusement qu'il y a une terrasse beaucoup plus cosy et sympathique !
Je recommande :)

The food was OUTSTANDING - service needs some work (including: our appetizer plates were not cleared before our entrees were brought to the table; the man who delivered our entrees - not our waiter - reached across others to put down a plate...)

When we first walked in, the NOISE was unbearable. We were ready to leave, but were then told there is a patio in the back - with heat. If you want to hold a conversation with your friends, request outside, as there is really no way to enjoy your meal without speaking to others on your phone with a headset.

Did I say the food was OUTSTANDING?!!?

Nice Italian place with patio seating. Based on Yelp help, we ordered beer gnocch and carpaccio and both did not disappoint! I highly recommend ordering those dishes. The chef accommodated us with an order of alfredo (not on the menu), and other diner ordered the other gnocchi which was in a tomato-based sauce with mozzarella melted on top which was also devoured. Finished with panacotta with fresh strawberries (excellent) and cheesecake (ok). The mixed drinks were a little strong for our taste. Host and servers were very friendly, extremely helpful with the menu and patio was lovely. Place came recommended by a friend also.

The restaurant was VERY LOUD on a Saturday night (there was at least one large party), so if you're looking for a quiet place, consider a different night of the week. The grilled octopus was cooked perfectly. I wish I got more than one scallop in the taglierini (sp?) because it was delicious and would have made up for the overcooked shrimp.
