We arrive and the building outside is beautifully designed.
We arrive and the building outside is beautifully designed. Get out of the car and all you can hear are jet engines from Gateway. Walked in- hostess just looked at us and said, "name" and wrote it down then made no eye contact and said nothing. We were the only ones waiting. Seated in ten minutes by a gentleman who was pleasant. Server came over quickly took our drink order. Sangria was watery and bland. Tea was good. Bread hot but served with cold hard packaged butter? This is an Italian place isnt it? Where is the olive oil for dipping or garllic? Ordered Italian salad for starters- bagged salad, bottled dressing taste. Main course 1- Creamy Chicken Marsala- creamy sauce, no taste. Chicken appeared to be pregrilled marked chicken breast cut into perfect strips mixed in with perfectly cooked mushrooms and pasta. Dish overall was bland- no taste of the marsala in it. Main course 2- Veal Marsala- Veal was tender but tasted like flour paste cooked in virgin olive oil. Sauce bland. Pasta perfect timing. Both dishes had absolutley NO flavor- used parm. cheese on table (cheese in a shaker like Peter Piper Pizza? Was not fresh cheese mind you)- it helped the main courses some. Dessert shared a piece of tiramasu- the center was kind of frozen then blended out to a watery substance which was gross. The edges were way too sweet. Food was not worth the trip or the price. Our waiter was okay, the busboy was the one who took care of refilling our drinks and clearning our empty dishes- he was very good. Would not recommend this for fine Italian dining. Sports bar atmosphere, TVs, music too loud. Music playing wasnt even Italian. More of hang out place with friends- not fine dining or genuine Italian food. Maybe Baci isnt what we really were looking for and that was for a birthday dinner that had some Italian class and really good Italian food like my Grandma Marsala used to make. If youre just up for a good hang out with friends, pizza or calzone and a beer- then Im sure Baci's is okay. Appreciate my hubby trying for me though! We make better Italian at our house though!
