This is a nice little Italian restaurant with great prices and just right portions. Pretty basic flavor...However, there were 3 very good things: 1. The bread was very good. 2. Seniors over 60 can eat off the child's menu (which had good choices) 3 The prices were reasonable and the portion sizes were modest.

For this restaurant to be mentioned as the "best" pizza around the Waco area is absurd. Either the reviewers have not explored their options, or taste buds are misaligned. They have authentic recipes for pastas, but presentation was lacking and customer service is a whole other issue all together.

After reading the reviews, we decided to try out Baris III. We had to wait about 15 minutes or so, which isn't bad for a Friday night in our opinion. Our waiter was prompt and friendly. He offered suggestions and sold my husband in the same dish- I don't remember the name but there was noodles, cheese, "pink sauce", sausage,... More

Waited in line 30 minutes to pay for dinner and no one seemed to care. The cashier spent most of that time filling to go orders that were in the process of being prepared. She didn't seem to notice the line of 20 people. Do yourself a favor. Don't go.

After a another disappointing and overpriced Olive Garden dinner, we had to find something local and better. Baris is the answer. Outstanding food, service, and value (less than $20 for 2). Parking is the real challenge. Once parked, you are in for a treet. We tried the Sunday lunch special and it was very tasty and hot. The house dressing... More

This was our first visit to Baris with several family members. As soon as you open the door you can smell the wonderful smells of an Italian kitchen. Something you do not experience at the Olive Garden. We were seated at a large table to accommodate our seven person and one infant party. Our waiter Keith was on the spot... More

Very authentic Italian food. You can tell everything is made from scratch. The salad dressing is delicious and the Italian bread is excellent.
