WOW.......

We live in the DFW area and were down for a sporting event. Found this place on Trip Advisor. My goodness they knock it out of the park. Nothing fancy about the place but it is bustling because the food is SO GOOD. Two wait staff we encountered were both spot on. Very friendly and attentive, all... read more

This place can be found at 904 North Valley Mills Dr, Waco Texas 76710 254.772.2900. Don't let the parking or the building scar you away. Any dish will be awesome, from the pizza to any sampler plate you will enjoy every bit. Always have the Baris salad with the red dressing. On your return visits you will find the food... More

Really enjoyed this place. I personally had the chicken parmigiana with pink sauce (highly recommend the pink sauce for the extra few bucks). The chicken was crispy, not soggy and they do not hold back on the serving size. The rolls before the meal are amazing as well, just be sure not to fill up before your food gets to... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Waco. I love bringing friends and family when they are in town. I have tried several things on the menu and can't remember being disappointed. (I am not a fan of their pizza, but so many others are. It's not bad, it's just not my favorite style.) Bring your own wine, and... More

Mary makes her own pasta, homemade sauce, and pizza crust. You can actually see Mary's pasta being made fresh every day. Her marinara sauce recipe is 100 years old. Best pizza ANYWHERE! I LOVE BAR IS III! 😆💖

First off, calling it the best Italian food in Waco isn't saying much. Waco has very poor choices when it comes to Italian food. The Olive Garden? Johnny Carino's? Please. On the plus side, our service was good and the owner was there in person overseeing things. Unfortunately, our salad was basically just a bowl of iceberg lettuce, my lasagna... More

Have a little Italian place we love to go to in Idabel Oklahoma. Best bread south of there. House made dressing is wonderful. Had the Stromboli, words don't describe it. It was perfect. Daughter ate almost all her tortellini. Wife's chicken parmigiana sub was so huge she only ate half. This is a place to stop for great food. Parking... More

Heard about this place from a sports talk radio host in Oklahoma said it reminded him of his Italian mothers homemade food so I had to try it and the place was outstanding. Authentic taste with reasonable price definitely coming back if ever in Waco again!

Baris is BY FAR the best Italian food in Waco. My boyfriend and I love coming here and it's just an all around great restaurant with great food. I've never had a bad meal. The eggplant rollatini and white pizza are to die for!

This is the best pizza in Waco, and second best Italian in Waco behind Portofino. The pizza is incredibly affordable, especially considering the quality. The staff are always friendly and even when it is incredibly busy the service is quick. The only problem is the parking, but Bari's is always worth it.
