Baci Bistro Restaurant Review

: A pleasant atmosphere and friendly service are standard at Baci Bistro and have more to do with its continued popularity than the cuisine, which, while not inspired, is certainly consistent. Stick with the menu basics such as prosciutto and melon, grilled eggplant topped with a garlicky eggplant-onion mix, plus grilled shrimp, chilled, with lime, mint and tangy feta cheese. The pastas are always good, but the star of the menu is the grilled veal chop marinated in olive oil with fresh herbs. The wine list is nice but limited.
