Went to Baylor Homecoming, so it was a busy weekend. Sat within 10 minutes. They are fast, the pizza is the best and the service is fast. Price is way below expected. We will eat there on every visit over the next 4 years.

Been coming to Baris for over 10 years, ever since visiting Baylor for the first time, and the food is still as fabulous as it was the first time and Mrs. Mary is still behind the cash register! The long wait is way worth it! BYOB! They will uncork for free! The food was still great and the service wasn't... More

Wow their coffee with warm cream is outstanding!! This is really good Italian food. Their food is really delicious and you will definitely want to return here. The food is hot out the oven and so flavorful. Baked Tortellini and Stromboli are my favorite. My husband always orders the Lasagna. You need to stop in and try their food. On... More

Although this is a small restaurant we were seated fairly quickly. Service was slow though. Maybe we had a new waiter because others in our party said service is usually very fast. The rolls served before your meal were so delicious, so soft and fluffy. The "pink" sauced tortellini were fantastic! It is nice to get good Italian food not... More

Traveling through Waco and stopped for dinner. Parking lot was packed. Good sign. Restaurant busy on Saturday night but we were seated in about 15 minutes. Quick, friendly service and food was excellent! We had the calzone and Stromboli. Bill came. Very affordable! Restaurant is a hole-in-the-wall but great!

Probably the best Italian food I had in Texas so far. It was pretty close to traditional family owned diner I've used in Italy. Tasty food and very reasonably price.

Very good locally owned Italian restaurant, Quick and friendly service. Complete and varied menu. We were served quickly and the food was served hot. I ordered The Aristocrat which was an excellent dish of chicken, eggplant, and pasta served with pink sauce. The homemade bread was very good!

We had lunch here today and enjoyed every bite. We ordered standards of pepperoni pizza and an order of cheese ravioli (special of the day $5.50). The ravioli was the best I've ever eaten, sauce to die for and covered with cheese before heating in the oven. This was served with a salad and huge delicious rolls. The pizza had... More
