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.

My calamari was so bad. Tasted so old and frozen. Not at all impressed by the food. Or the drinks. Big disappointment.

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??

Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious. My two dining partners did have to wait much longer than I did for my food, but after it came out we all continued to have a lovely time. Great find!!

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!

Don't miss the pistachio crusted grapes! Great place, clearly just getting some momentum but the vibe is fun and the food was great. Happy hour pizza and drink prices can't be beat.

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 on sunday for pre-theatre brunch. Chicken and waffles tacos (fried chicken wrapped in waffles) and pizzas were very good. Waffles could have been crispier, but the chicken was very good. Especially liked the Mrs.Croque pizza. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Happy Hour is great. The Shaved Brussel and Carnivoro pizzas were fantastic. The staff was incredibly friendly. If I lived in the neighborhood, this would be my go to place. I will recommend this restaurant to friends.

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.

Ordering process takes a while because the bartender acts as order taker and cashier too. However, service was friendly. Maybe an extra waiter would help. Good lunch and great happy hour spot

First St there are no tablespoon inside on,y tall counters, if your cool with that just know. The food was fine, sounds more fancy than It’s is, pizza and fries and fried chicken I sent most of the menu, except they make it seem fancier than it is. Nothing was amazing or really flavorful, we had 4 pizzas, and 4dishes, all we’re aversge at best. Don’t get me wrong it wasn’t horrible, just wasn’t worth writing home about or even commuting to.

Excellent food. Good beer selection. Nice atmosphere. We went there for pizza and it was delicious, but we were surprised by how good the appetizers were. This is almost like a tapas style place. Sharing the unique pizzas and wonderful appetizers makes for a fun meal. I️ recommend the charred octopus and Lil’ Tokyo pizzas and the chicken and cornbread small plate.

Great tapas restaurant in Little Tokyo; terrific selection of small and larger shared plates and all the preparations and seasoning/tastes were sublime. Very friendly and attentive service. Reasonably priced and comfortable.
