The restaurant is named for the village in Italy where the family resided before their ancestors migrated to the States. Family members settled across the Atlantic in Queens, one of the definitive hotbeds of Italian culture and food in New York City. Rumors of this direct connection to the American cornerstone of the red-and-white-checked tablecloth is what led us to eat at Baris to see what the fuss was all about.

Baris is in the strip center anchored by the Albertson's supermarket, and when you enter you find a comfortable and understated family-oriented establishment. The walls are covered with the requisite publicity photos of famous Italian-Americans, calling to mind the decorations of Danny Aiello's pizzeria in Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing. An exuberant air-conditioner keeps Baris a tad on the chilly side for our tastes, so taking a sweater along isn't out of the question.

Favorite Dish: Definitely a split between the stromboli, and the chicken marsala.
