Met some friends we hadn't seen in a year for what promised to be a quiet dinner in the new Baci's (former Bensi's). We had chosen it over another restaurant because we assumed it wouldn't be noisy. Geez. Our friends had arrived before us and we discovered upon being seated that they had sat at the bar for quite some time and not been served. Hopefully, that was not a bad sign. We were seated in the main dining area, and much to our dismay, we had live entertainment within 15 feet of our table. Needless to say, we spent the next 2 hours reading lips, as it was just too noisy to hear. The waitress could barely hear our orders. She was very attentive and nice. Appetizer, scallops wrapped in bacon, was the best we have had in quite some time. Very good. Dinner was very good as well and portions were large. Jack was very nice and made us feel welcome. We will gladly come back but will ask not to be seated anywhere near the music.

The atmosphere was outstanding, the service great and the food was delicious. Everything was fresh and served fast. The rolls were warm, the salad crisp, and the entrees were perfect. The pricing is comparable to an Olive garden, but with more portion size. The seafood (clams) were cooked expertly and the wife's meatballs melted in your mouth.
One of the "best" restaurants in Hampton if not the best.

So glad BENSI is gone, and BACI Ristorante Italiano reopened this beautiful place in Hampton. Enjoyed dinner last night, with our friends Julie S. Pugh and Andy Johnson at the new Baci (Kiss in Italian). The new owners Antonio (of Tuscany's) and Jack (of Fiorello's) will make this place an instant success. Antonio greeted us in a very courteous customer friendly way. He not only introduced himself before we were seated, but came by the table two times to insure everything was to our liking, prepared and served properly. We had a very enjoyable dinner, the service by our waiter Sonny was great. He made several suggestions that were not on the menu, and they were great recommendations. We will definitely make this new restaurant one of our favorites...
