Food was amazing, service was amazing! They saw we booked for our anniversary and gave us our dessert free of charge. Couldn’t recommend enough.

My mother in-law didn’t like her entree at all. When the waitress asked if she wanted it wrapped to go she said no! The waitress never asked if there was something wrong with her food, seeing a full bowl she should have asked if the food was OK!

Used to love Cafe Baci but the last couple of visits I’ve been underwhelmed by the food. I had the eggplant parmigiana and it was very bland. Last time had a pasta dish with chicken and shrimp also very mediocre. Portions are ridiculously big and I hope they are not ignoring quality for the sake of sending people home with “doggy bags”. Also the waitress disappeared after the entrees were brought out by kitchen staff…I probably would have had another glass of wine but she didn’t come by again until the table was cleared for dessert/check. The restaurant wasn’t busy so it didn’t appear that she had many other tables to cover. I thought my disappointment from the prior visit was just an off night and ordering the wrong thing, but feeling this way twice in a row makes me wonder what’s going on…

This is my husband's HAPPY place! He loves Cafe Baci! The portions are huge and everything is always tasty. The Manhattan he ordered was well priced and just right.
He ate the Chicken Parm - and I ate Salmon with clams and mussels. I love the chunks of garlic. We had to take home food- there was so much.
We were disappointed with the coffee -not good at all.
Cafe Baci f may not be as 'fine ' as some of our neighborhood Roslyn restaurants - but we love the homey feeling.

We been coming to Baci for years now and it never disappoints. Always treated like family. Service is amazing as well as food quality and portions overflowing from dishes. Make sure to get their homemade desserts to end the night. Andy abs Juan the managers and Santos the server always go above and beyond.

Me & my best friend had the day off so we met for lunch.
We were both born and raised in Westbury. So we wanted to support our local community & restaurant.
The food is and service are always good.

Very disappointed with our lunches. One was ziti and the other eggplant parm. Bland. Nothing special. Threw my leftovers away when I got home. My friend felt the same way. What changed?

One of my favorite restaurants ever, I absolutely love this place! The food is always consistently delicious. The tables are spaced apart for covid precautions, but they’re now seating people near the bar. I didn’t care for this seating, because the bus boy forgot about us half the time. Our waiter was the bartender, and he was great. Aside from the seating, I’d recommend Baci to anyone and everyone, and will continue to go back.

Great Baci experience as usual. The service wasn't quite as polished this time - waiter seemed like he had too many tables and was running around a lot but overall he was very nice. The food was spectacular as usual!!

Everything was great. Only disappointment was that since I used opentable I marked the occasion of our reservation as a Birthday and when we arrived they did not do anything. Absolutely no one wished us a happy birthday or brought out a dessert or anything at all. It was a Monday night and they were not that busy. That’s the reason of marking the occasion.

Love this place! Had reservation that was right on time. Appetizers were large portions and delicious as usual. By the time dinner came we were stuffed. Everything was so good that we couldn’t help but to forge through 1/2 of our dinners. There is a reason so many people leave with a bag in their hand. Can’t wIt for leftovers today. Best pink sauce on LI.

My two girlfriends and I haven’t seen each other in months and it was so nice to return to cafe Baci after having been away for at least a year. All protocols were followed fir distancing and safe eating. Service was friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent! It was nice to be back in a familiar restaurant that is consistently delicious and better than ever!

We’ve been celebrating our first date at Baci’s for the past 29 years and it has not once disappointed us. The food is plentiful and always comes out steaming hot. the staff is impeccable. It’s remarkable in this day and age, to be able to go back to a restaurant and have it consistently delicious. Thank you. We truly appreciate all you do.
I have one question. We were given the paper menu and we noticed once we received our bill, the items ordered were more money then listed. How can this be possible?
