Menu: Serving breakfast and lunch, Bacci Trattoria feels as if you are sitting at a table in an Italian trattoria. Conversations swirl around you like cream in a cup of black coffee. Open 7 days a week, Bacci is a local favorite for breakfast. Offering a superb menu for both breakfast and lunch, we love to begin our day with breakfast from Bacci Trattoria. With a vast array of breakfast menu choices, it will be difficult to narrow your choice down to one item. Bacci offers classics like omelets, eggs and bacon, quiche, pancakes and french toast, and then takes these items to a new level.

They offer nine different benedicts, including such creations as the Italiano Benedicto, which as shaved prosciutto, fresh pesto, shaved parmesan and two poached eggs on crusty Tuscan bread and topped champagne hollandaise sauce. Totally sinfully delicious! The Irish Benjamin has a homemade corned beef hash, two poached eggs perched on grilled deli rye bread and topped with champagne hollandaise sauce. The Irish Benjamin will leave you sated and satisfied.

The pancake and french toast options are out of this world! French toast not to your liking? You can substitute a waffle. How could you not love Fireball Whiskey Apple, with thick cut challah bread that is battered and grilled and then stacked high with whiskey-soaked apples and drizzled with homemade caramel sauce? The American In Paris will have you salivating for a taste just by reading the description – battered and grilled challah bread that is stuffed with peanut butter and sliced bananas, and topped with crumbled bacon and an orange rind drizzle.

Huevos Di Baci is a twist on Huevos Rancheros. Two eggs, black beans, risotto, cheddar cheese, fresh salsa and dollop of sour cream take this dish to a whole new level of tastiness. Craving breakfast Italian style? Try “Nona’s cure for a hangover”, Heaven n’ Hell eggs. This dish is made with three scrambled eggs, hot Italian sausage, and a “Fra Diavolo” sauce that will make your hair curl. A petite crock of spicy peppers comes on the side if you need that extra kick of spice, or as my daddy would say, “a bite of the hair of the dog that bit ya.”

Bacci also has a nice selection of lunch choices. Pasta, sandwiches, paninis, burgers, and salads are on their menu.

Thoughts: Bacci is one of those rare finds. Tasty food, well prepared and presented; a relaxing atmosphere that doesn’t have you hurrying to finish your meal, and a wait staff who are friendly and upbeat. Bacci is where you will find locals and visitors alike. Dining at Bacci is an experience, not just a meal. As Bacci says, “It’s a funky Italian food experience.” And we say it is a fabulous experience shared with good friends over tasty food.

Price Range: Breakfast at Bacci ranges from $7 to $14. On the lunch menu, selections range from $7 to $12.
