Vero Beach is full of restaurants and to me, most of them are just a big waste of money and time. However, Baci Trattoria leads the pack when it comes to an excellent menu, delicious food, a great ambiance, and ease of parking. You may choose between eating indoors at the quaint restaurant or sitting on the covered patio outside. My family went there for breakfast and we opted to sit on the patio.
The food at Baci Trattoria is not only delicious, but beautifully plated as well.
The menu at Baci Trattoria is very overwhelming as they offer a large selection containing both lunch and breakfast items. It is sure to please foodies as well as the pickiest eaters. Baci offers a quiche of the day, so make sure to check that out before finalizing your selection. As if there were not enough choices already, there will also be specials listed in the paper menu on your table. It was hard narrowing down to just one choice, but we picked; Nutella Spiedini (grilled vanilla battered Challah with Nutella, sliced bananas, and Amaretto infused syrup) Country Bubba Benny (layers of cheddar scrambled eggs, kick ass country sausage gravy and home fries over a split biscuit), Heaven ‘n Hell Eggs (scrambled eggs with tomato sauce, hot Italian sausage, spicy peppers, toast and grits) and typical American breakfast fare such as pancakes, eggs, toast, and grits.
The food came out piping hot! My mother swooned over the Spiedini with the delectable syrup. My dad had the Country Bubba Benny and it had a huge stacks of cheesy potato sausage egg mess swimming in a bowl full of sausage gravy. It looked sinful, in a pleasing way! The Heaven ‘n Hell Eggs are my standing order; I find it wonderful though I usually add a few extra splashes of hot sauce to make it even hotter. Nothing like jalapeños and hot sauce to get the day started. My daughter loved the pancakes, served with real butter, and the crispy bacon strips.
Other great choices to order include Italiano Benedicto, any of their designer omelets, and the lunchtime Sunday Gravy with fresh ricotta cheese.
Drinks are served in a rather small size glass so this makes the wait staff have to work harder keeping the beverages refilled. That is the only downside I can find at the whole restaurant. Hours are 7-3 everyday and you can find them at 1918 14th Avenue.
