Bistro La Baia Restaurant Review

: Bring your own wine to this Italian spot with its relaxed setting, fine for an evening of conversation and Italian cooking. The place is tiny with absolutely no place to wait, so reserve ahead. If the weather cooperates, you could score a table outside. Although the batik banquettes seem jarring against the lovely mural of the chef's hometown on the Adriatic, you’ll find the welcome is warm and the food enjoyable. You'll return for the grilled calamari, handmade lobster ravioli with Cognac sauce and risotto with vegetables.
