Lil' Baci...Leslieville's own Terroni??

Finally made my way over to Lil Baci last night..not sure why I am so lazy to only go to walk-able locations these days..perhaps it is the price of gas. In any case, I had been eager to try this place out and was feeling in a pizza mood, so hubby and I gave it a try. First of all, I have to say nice things about the servers - previous posts were less than positive. Our servers were sincerely friendly and seemed to know the menu quite well. I liked the clientelle too..some wee kiddies with parents, small groups of friends, people out on a date...the room was really pretty - high ceilings, exposed brick...not romantic per se, but cozy and inviting for sure. 3 beers on tap - 2/3 from Barrie (the Wheat beer was great!) was a little pricy, personally, I think a place like that should have a decent house red for about 7.00 per glass maximum. Cheapest was 8.00 I believe. I had the Chianti for 9.00, which was great but still more than I like to pay for a glass of wine.

Hubby and I split the antipasti platter (assorted cured meats, olives, parm.cheese, white beans with rosemary, roasted acorn squash and one other veg that escapes me at present - 15.00) We then split a pizza with tomato sauce and mini meatballs and spicy peppers - quite spicy! Crust was very thin, well cooked, great flavour. We actually didn't get through it all! (very nice for lunch today!)

I think the total bill was about 58.00 - quite comparable to most other casual places we go to (darn booze always adds up!) Next time we are craving a pizza and want to go out for it, we will certainly head back there! I just wish they had some great grilled calamari and that baked mushroom salad that Terroni has...then I'd go back every week!
