Food is tasteful but the portions are quite small, although service is excellent as well. In general terms it’s a little expensive due the portions size but it’s good

Met for a birthday lunch and enjoyed the food - varied, well presented and wonderful, and the service which was unobtrusive, friendly and helpful. good crowd for lunch yet not too loud and never delays in service. Ended having some food which was easily and quickly provided as takeout. All n all a great lunch

We ended a fantastic 2 week vacation by dining at Baduzzi. It was the perfect Finale. OUTSTANDING food - such great flavors, textures. You can just feel the love. And the atmosphere was totally comfortable, cozy and just felt good. They did not rush at all and we really loved our DINING EXPERIENCE. Thanks for a great conclusion to visiting your fine country.
