Da Baffone Cucina Italiana

111 North Main Street, Crystal Lake, IL 60014


Da Baffone is a cozy little getaway, a family owned Italian Restaurant in downtown Crystal Lake. A unique dinning experience with a focus on traditional Southern Italian Cuisine where you can dine and enjoy good food, good wine, with good friends.

Da Baffone believes that food is a tradition that brings family and friends together. Out of this beliefe springs their passion for food, wine, and friends. "Without a passion for cooking, you have nothing". It is this passion that the owners share with their sister restaurant Agriturisimo da Baffone in Santo Stefano del Sole, Italy. The recipes are ones that the family was raised on and now want to share with their customers. They not only touch the pallet but also touch the soul. Come and taste these wonderful dishes and sit back with a glass of wine in the cozy dinning  room which features brick walls that give you the feel of the Tuscan countryside. Da Baffone's wine list features wines from thebest regions of Italy and the world.
