Cafe Baci has stood the test of time, 22 years of it, our server told us. I've seen it for years and finally made a reservation for a Thursday evening. They do little advertising in the tourist pamphlets. They don't need to do that judging from the busy restaurant we entered yesterday at 8 p.m.
Our server was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. An antipasti plate along with bread and pesto was brought immediately. I had looked up their menu and wine list before we went there. Recently we've seen wine prices rise dramatically in some Sarasota area restaurants. At Cafe Baci we ordered a bottle of white table wine for $18. The wines were mostly affordable. Our dinners were delicious and afterwards we were treated to a free liqueur. We'll visit here again on our next trip to Sarasota.
