Caffe Baci is a great spot for lunch! The Roma pizza is one of the best. It includes spicy Italian sausage, mozzarella cheese, and caramelized onions to give you the perfect Italian flavor combination. The salmon is also exquisite. I don't usually consider fish to be an Italian dish, but this restaurant shows how they can cook it to perfection. Baci also offers salad and sandwiches of the day, so you can get an affordable lunch deal that is absolutely delicious. Overall this place is perfect for any meal whether you're dining in or eating at home!

The bruschetta here is to die for. The parmesan is delicious, the bread is crisply toasted, and the tomatoes are super fresh. Not to mention the pizza is great too. It's rich and stuffed to maximum capacity with cheese. The deep dish style in the photo above shows just how amazing Chicago style pizza can be.
