Hi, We're Baldoria!

It’s not happy hour, it’s not share plates, it’s not family style… it’s Baldoria.

At Baldoria, we’re embracing the lifestyle of the laissez faire. Where plans, schedules and reservations are frowned upon and anything is up for grabs.

It’s a place where you might meet up with friends for drinks and somehow find yourself slipping into dinner. Where you can bring a first date, or maybe just leave with one. Where chance might have you sipping a glass of Rosé next to your new business partner or exchanging coy glances with a throng of Milanese-models (one can dream). Baldoria is more than just a restaurant, more than just a bar…at Baldoria, it’s a bash.

Great spot. I really loved the Old Fashioned, and the Pizza with shiitake mushrooms and shishito peppers was amazing.

Arrived for our reservation 15 minutes early, however the couple in front of us did not have a reservation. For some reason they were seated at the only remaining table (it was pretty packed due to happy hour, which we didn't know was happening). With years in the service industry, my partner and I were surprised to be booted for a non-reservation. We 100% understand and empathize with being slammed and would have had no problem if standard policy was employed where reservations are honored before walk-ins and/or least mentioned and apologized . That being said, we were still chill about it, and when things settled down, they were super nice and attentive. The food was decent (steak pizza awesome, chicken sausage pizza blah) but offset by an incredible happy hour which I don't think they even need to do! What a nice surprise. Overall would go back if in area but not make a special trip.

Really nice place with great meat and vegetarian options. Shared plates are encouraged and all the flavors and presentations were great. Not much in terms of decor, and service (while friendly) can get sketchy when they get busy, but overall worth it.

WHAT A GREAT PLACE! We came for dinner on a rainy Saturday night. The staff here are all so friendly and knowledgeable about wine. We had a great time- The potato pizza with added arugula (thanks to our servers suggestion) was amazing as well as the one with steak and shishito peppers.

Very nice restaurant! Was mostly impressed with the pizzas and the gnocchi. Next time I come back, we will likely share several pizzas rather than order other items off the menu. The quality of mozzarella used is superb and the crust was also very good.

It's a tiny place with few employees, so sometimes the service is a little slow when it's crowded, but it's so worth it! The octopus pizza and brussel sprouts are incredible and their cocktails are fantastic. I recommend sitting outside where it's quieter and cooler. Such a great find!

I've been to Baldoria numerous times and it never disappoints. First, they have some of the most amazing and unique handcrafted cocktail creations I've ever experienced. Second, their happy hour menu is a terrific deal where you can get any of their delicious flatbread pizzas for $8 plus a discount on cocktails and beer. Third, deviating from the happy hour menu is also fun as they offer other wonderful items such as charcuterie and cheese plates, mac and cheese, fried chicken, etc. Finally, their service is outstanding. What's not to love??

We came for the Mother's day brunch and had a great time. It was great value for what we got, 1 entree, 1 side and bottomless mimosas or rose wine for $32 per person. The food was absolutely delicious, the mimosas were well made and the service was impeccable. Our bottomless mimosas never got to the bottom and they checked on us frequently to ensure everything was good. Thanks to Brian and Tucker!

Went here for pre-theater drinks and dinner on Thurs night. LOVED IT! We actually returned the next night as well. Great happy hour with $8.00 pizzas and 20% off drinks. The Funghi pizza was yummy. Also tried the Mrs. Croque pizza which has thin Black Forest Ham, brown-butter béchamel and an egg yolk. Super yum!! (and I don't like runny eggs) but THIS was clever and delicious. To top it all off, the service is superb. I wish I could clone them all. Just naturally hip, nice and on it! Well done.

Went twice in two weeks with different friends. Ordering was a bit chaotic the first time but staff is very friendly and welcoming. I didn't like the charred octopus pizza as much as I had expected to but the mushroom pizza was great.

Other than improvements on the ordering process, everything else here is great.
