Sorry about the slow response, I'm not on this site often. If you call the restaurant they will mail you one. My Dad lives down in Sarasota and I had had one mailed to his house and did it over the phone. Easy

At Café Baci, we strive to perfectly recreate the full Italian experience. From the moment you walk through our door, you sense the difference and you feel the culture. The atmosphere here is enchanting and peaceful, the Italian cuisine reminiscent of that created by some of the greatest Italian Chefs.

Relax and enjoy your stay with us. Savor the delicate flavors of history. Close your eyes, breathe deeply….you are in Italy, if but only for a moment.

Buon appetito!
