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!

The veal marsala is by far the best dinner in Florida. Cory was our server recently and did a great job and has a wonderful sense of humor. We met the owner and the manager and felt that they were really competent.

My daughter and I decided to stay in Sarasota vs St Pete during our trip to Stetson. Although, I have recently traveled to Sarasota, my daughter had not traveled with me in over 4 years. She was still in high school at the time.
After driving over 600 miles, we exited Bee Ridge Road..
"Mom, I want to go to Baci for dinner...haven't had decent Italian food in 4 years"....the trip was exhausting...I was reluctant. But since this was her weekend....I agreed!

As always, 4 years later, same consistent, fantastic Italian Food!!!

They sold out of her favorite pasta item... When they served our dinner...her pasta she always loved was served as well....

Well done Cafe Baci!!!!!

Cafe Baci was the perfect spot for two people looking to enjoy each other's company, in a relaxing, quiet setting. Oh yea, the food was fabulous also.
The most outstanding part of the night's experience was Suzanne, our table's "guest relations" representative. Suzanne was terrific. Always available, never intrusive, friendly, polite, and extremely professional.
Thanks to the attentive staff, the great food, a warm inviting setting, and,of course, Suzanne, there is no question we will visit Cafe Baci every time we are in Sarasota.

They have a large selection on their early bird menu. The meal was delicious and the Pino Grigio for $10 a bottle was perfect with the veal and seafood. Delicious meal, great service and wonder tiramisu!
