Baci Ristorante Restaurant Review

: Owner Tony D’Amato’s old-world ristorante offers consistently well-made food in a sophisticated atmosphere. Dim lighting and tuxedo-clad waiters make it a shoo-in for romantic dinners, despite the less-than-typical and even somewhat industrial location. The menu includes seafood, such as the sea bass with capers, tomato and black olives; and linguine with sweet clams, mussels and fresh pesto. Chef Domenico Alioto creates classics like caprese salad, osso buco, lamb shank and veal chops. For lunch, we suggest the hearts of palm salad and salmon piccata with a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. Chocolate lovers will enjoy the mousse parfait. An extensive wine list favors Italy and has a special collection of Tony’s Reserve Selection for serious connoisseurs.
