Food was freshly prepared and the variety was good - lot of options for vegetarians. One thing that stood out is the serving size - large portions. None of us could even come close to finishing what was on our plate. We were seated immediately on arrival - they do not take reservations. Service was good. Overall a very good experience.

Cafe Baci continues to consistently hit all the right buttons. Great Fresh Food - Reasonable Prices - Big Portions and Great Staff. You can't ask for more than that. Having not been here in a while, no particular reason and then realized we should have been back sooner. A Standout as we have a lot of choices in the area. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Twenty years ago, we stopped going to Cafe Baci. At that time the food was average and the wait staff was not friendly at all. Because the restaurant is not very large, there is usually a wait during popular times of the weekend. In addition, they never have enough parking. So we stopped going.

Today we decided to go back and try Baci for dinner. Visions of the old reasons why we stopped going surfaced when we couldn't find a parking space. We were about to leave when someone pulled out.

The restaurant was not full and we were seated right away. We ordered two appetizers. The mussels in white wine sauce was very good but the antipasto Baci was so-so. Who wants to eat stuff clams with spaghetti sauce?

The "Baci Fra Diavolo" was very good. My wife ordered it and I kept eating her dish. The "Mamma Mia" was good, except for the meatballs. They should be called "bread balls", not much meat in them.

It was nostalgic to go back. Will try again, but won't if we can't find parking.

PS. They have been around for so long, why haven't they addressed their parking situation? So many restaurants open and closed down the road on Merrick Ave in the last 20 years. As a mater of fact the old Bertucci site with plenty of parking is available. The only thing they seem to have done was to post a sign by the door telling would-be customers that their cars will be towed if they park in other parking lots.

We had a very enjoyable lunch. This was our first time eating here. They have a very good menu:appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, chicken, fish, veal and beef dinners, pizza, drinks and desserts. A very nice bread basket is included with the meal.
We ordered the fettuccine primavera- lots of fresh cooked vegetables and chicken and three mushroom chicken(marsala)- it came with
fresh cooked vegetables and roasted potatoes. The food was served steaming hot. We shared both dishes. They were both delicious and were very generous portions. We weren't going home so we couldn't take home the leftovers. They offer an extensive dessert menu. We had the tartufo- very fresh vanilla and chocolate ice cream and dark chocolate. In addition we had very attentive service.
