Been here multiple times and it's always amazing! Great home cooked food, with a cozy atmosphere makes the perfect combination. You must talk to ms.mary as well she loves all of her customers!

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

Girl Trip to Waco. Our 1st meal here was Baris Pasta and Pizza. The food is fantastic and service from Natalie was outstanding. We would recommend coming early .. it gets crazy busy and as mentioned in another review parking is horrible. BUT the meal is totally worth it. Enjoy ..

Enjoyed a family dinner here on a busy Friday evening. This place is very popular, and for good reason. The food is great, and the service is good and friendly. You can tell immediately that this is a family-owned and managed business. The place was packed, but things were running like a well-oiled machine. The menu is chock full of... More

Parking is horrible and the restaurant itself could be updated but OH the delicious pasta. The spinach lasagna is my personal favorite but I have tried most of the menu and its all good. Eat here and pick a favorite of your own.

We went to Baris before a Baylor football game. Not knowing what to expect, was told that they allow you to bring in your own bottle of wine, good to know! I ordered vegetable lasagna, my wife had a salad and my daughter had spaghetti. We all enjoyed our dish and the dish of the one sitting next to us.... More

Family run and it shows in the friendly staff, as well as the quality of the food. On this visit we had the tortellini pink and the cantellini. The tortellini was wonderful and the pink sauce was a nice balance between Alfredo and marinara. The cantellini was served with chicken, mushrooms and artichoke and a very light garlic sauce that...

I've been going here occasionally over the years and I'm never disappointed. I often get the eggplant parmigiana and always take 1/2 home. It comes with their delicious rolls. The place hasn't changed over the years, having the same tables and booths. Mary, the owner, is still there, which likely accounts for the consistency. They have a daily special, many... More

Good food served promptly at a reasonable price. Haven't experienced the whole menu but what I've had has been tasty and authentic. Two quibbles. The bread is warm and delicious but it is not garlic bread, knots or even sticks. It's good, but I expect garlic bread at an Italian place in America. Second: Do NOT park at the Mexican... More
