The big problem is what to order. All of the dishes are so good. Probably the most interesting factor at Cafe Baci is that it is a place of learning. Much like your favorite class at University.

Cafe Baci has a nice selection of Italian choices. The restaurant is attractive and the staff very attentive and pleasant. Make a reservation on Open Table and get a free Antipasti Plate.

Throwback atmosphere and excellent food. Had the Linguini Frutti De Mare with white wine and garlic that was great. Terry, my server, was great.

Sorry about the slow response, I'm not on this site often. If you call the restaurant they will mail you one. My Dad lives down in Sarasota and I had had one mailed to his house and did it over the phone. Easy
