Description: 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!

Wow! Great service and wonderful food. The options were not many and that always makes for a good restaurant. From antipasti to dessert, we were pleased and the children cleaned their plates. Definitely at the top of the Sarasota dining list!

I really don't want to tell to many people about this place, or I won't be able to get a reservation anymore. Been here many times since first finding it, and always had a fantastic meal, will surely keep returning. The last time we were here was for Savor Sarasota.

Myself and 5 girlfriends rented a home in Longboat Key to celebrate 4 of them turning the big 60. We were looking at restaurants in and around there and came across the website for Cafe Baci. Boy am I glad we did! What and AWESOME experience all the way around. They had our table ready and waiting. Teresa (out most OUTSTANDING servr) greeted us with the warmest, friendliest smile and seated us promptly. The menu is amazing. So many wonderful choices and so many specials it was hard to decide. Teresa was very helpful with the menu as well as offered us some great wine selections. The food came out at a pefect pace...not too fast not too slow. It was hot...fresh and amazing! Teresa was extremely attentive and even showed an interest in what we were celebrating. She took pictures for us and then as a huge surprise came out with not 1 but 4 desserts compltetr with candles and beautifully decorated plating. For 6 of us with wine appetizers entrees and 2 extra desserts it was barely $200.00. I HIGHLY reccomend Cafe Baci. We live an hour away but I can assure you we will drive that far just to go back again. Thank you to Teresa and the entire staff. You made the birthday experience aven better than expected!

The food is mediocre and the staff and wait time is appalling. I think we waited 1 1/2 hour to get our meal. Definitely not worth it--will not be back!

We are from out of town and made reservations for 6. Although it may not appear as anything special from the outside, I know better than to judge a book by its cover. Romantic atmosphere fresh flowers on table. We had caprese salad and bruchetta that was delicious. I ordered mushroom stuffed ravioli that was home made! My husband had red snapper that was the best prepared fish he had ever had. Kids had Alfredo that won rave reviews. Tiramasu was home made and light. Would definitely return.
