Via Baci Italian Bistro – Lone Tree Colorado
This little jewel is tucked up on the hill in the Target Shopping Center at the corner of Lincoln Avenue and Yosemite and I just have to share what incredible food and service they have there.
Try the Caprese Salad with sliced fresh mozzarella (they make it fresh ONSITE every morning by 11:00 a.m.) fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, mixed greens and arugula with balsamic vinaigrette. This was a favorite of the entire Taste Cast crew…. I’ve never had fresh mozzarella before and WOW, it’s like an entirely different food than the stuff that comes shredded in a bag.
Let’s talk Wine! Via Baci has a nice selection of wine to accompany your meals including 4 different Pino Grigio Wine selections !My personal favorite with Italian Food.
Every Tuesday and Thursday after 5pm they have 1/2 price wine served at their nice bar area or at your table.
You can see their entire menu’s, special and wine lists on their website at www.viabaci.com
BURRATA – I had never heard of this before but now I can never forget it. How does Cheese stuffed with.. you guessed it CHEESE sound? YUM! Fresh Mozzarella filled with creamy ricotta. It is served with the crispy yet moist Prosciutto Fig Bruschetta that comes with all of the side’s and salads.. totally addicting.. you have to try it.
My favorite main dish was the Bianco Pizza with Oven Roasted Chicken, Fresh Tomatoes, Goat Cheese, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Roasted Garlic, Olive Oil and a touch of Red Pepper flakes to give it a little zip. The crust is thin but not hard so you ALMOST feel like you are eating something healthy.. but it tastes too good for that to be true.
My husband enjoyed the Pumpkin Ravioli… really interesting flavor combinations.
They also have a very nice patio with a beautiful view of Denver.
We aren’t the only one’s who think this place is great.. See these reviews too.
