WELL WORTH FINDING

One of the best Italian food restaurants in Waco. Not big or fancy but great food for Italian food lovers. Pizza is best in Waco also. One recommendation though is that they need to remove the tails from their shrimp, not good to bite down on if eating a dinner that has shrimp in it.

The wait staff is outstanding and we have never ordered anything here that wasn't just wonderful. Fresh and tasty. Our only complaint is that parking is challenging. The neighboring Mexican restaurant never has any customers but has nasty signs warning "no parking"!

Enjoyed eating here, and the sandwich I had was very tasty. I thought I ordered a cold sandwich, but it came out warm, and it was still delicious. Did not see the earlier review about the roaches. If I had, we definitely would NOT have eaten here.

My wife and I travel to Italy frequently and are always looking for good Italian restaurants stateside. Outside of NYC, we don't find many that are worthwhile, and Baris, though its prices are very reasonable and the service was very good did not meet our expectations of a good stateside Italian restaurant. I had a good pizza, but the pasta... More

We had the lunch special for the day that we were there. For $5.50 you got a salad, garlic bread and 3 types of pasta. One was lasagna, and another was cannelloni. I forget what the third one was. All of the pasta came under a layer of marinara sauce and melted cheese. I'm not sure that I could tell... More

Baris is a local restaurant that I go to at least once a month. Everything here is delicious, and I am rarely disappointed. One of their signature dishes is their Tortellini with Pink Sauce, and now that I have tried it, I never order anything else. Each time my parents come to town, my dad wants to go to Baris... More

My husband and I heard this place was good so we decided to go for dinner on night, it's was a little crowed but we were seated as soon as we walked in. Our waiter was a little out of it granted the restaurant was full so I could understand if he was under stress. I ordered the Tortellini Alfredo... More

I asked a barista by Baylor University for a mom and pop type of Italian Food place. He very quickly recommended Baris. Once we got there, we found parking very tight, as it was early evening, about 7:30. Neighboring businesses allow parking when they are closed. The restaurant was pretty packed, only 2 or 3 tables open. Waiter said it... More
