I met a friend for lunch - she and her late husband frequented this place. It was absolutely delicious. I had a salad, the grilled salmon and tiramasu for dessert. I love the atmosphere - very quaint and service was great.

At Café Baci, we strive to perfectly recreate the full Italian experience. From the moment you walk through our door, you sense the difference and you feel the culture. The atmosphere here is enchanting and peaceful, the Italian cuisine reminiscent of that created by some of the greatest Italian Chefs.

Relax and enjoy your stay with us. Savor the delicate flavors of history. Close your eyes, breathe deeply….you are in Italy, if but only for a moment.

Buon appetito!
