Lil' Baci Yonge Street

Just wanted to do a short review of Lil' Baci Yonge Street. I have been for both brunch and dinner, and will be returning this week for lunch. It is that good. I enjoyed the dinner menu better than the brunch. The brussel sprout pizza is awesome. I usually do not enjoy truffle oil on anything - but it is done with a very light touch on the pizza . The service was outstanding on both visits. We love Nick. If you can sit in his area, do so! Reservations are available on opentable, which I find really convenient.

    I've enjoyed their location on Queen East so I'm glad to hear that the new Davisville location is keeping up its end.
    It's interesting to see Leslieville/Riverside locations branching out across the city.

        Completely agree, that brussel sprout pizza is amazing. I wish they served it at their Queen St location.

          Unfortunately I had a rather lackluster visit.

          Super oily pizza, bad service, awkward seating arrangement, weird moldy smell upstairs in the bathrooms, cold temperature in the dining room... I could go on.

            That not good! The dining room does get quite cold because of the location of the door and the traffic in and out of the place. The pizza that I had wasn't oily at all and the service was good - maybe an off night? Let's hope.

            I had a very enjoyable meal here for dinner. It was one of their specials: crispy duck breast and risotto. It was delicious. Our server was great but the food did not come out at the same time. We were a party of six and five of the meals came out before mine. I would say mine came out 5 to 10 minutes later with a slight apology. I thought something more should have been done. It was worth the wait though! I do remember thinking it was a bit chilly in the restaurant, but I am often cold when others aren't so didn't think anything of it. I will return as I think the food is great and the prices are reasonable.

              My husband and I had dinner at Lil' Baci on Saturday night and had a good experience. I had the pan roasted chicken, it was nice and juicy, if not slightly over salted. My husband had the margerita pizza (he enjoyed it but said the tomato sauce was slightly watery) and we shared the buffalo mozzerella. Overall the food was pretty great for the price! I do agree the seating arrangement is a bit awkward, we were a table of two seated roughly a foot and a half from another table of two, which made conversation not so easy. We also sat with our menus in our laps waiting for our server to take our order for a good 15 minutes. But these were small issues in an otherwise enjoyable evening.
