We dine at Baci’s when we want a special night out. The food is always good and the service is excellent. The price is a little high but the quality is always there.

I had short ribs with polenta and they were so delicious. My husband had rigatoni with fennel sausage that was perfectly cooked and sauced.
Sherry was our waitress and she was delightful. Will definitely be going back for another great meal.

Baci is our favorite place to dine in Healdsburg, well worth the drive from anywhere in the Bay Area. The food is consistently outstanding, both in terms of its traditional Mediterranean menu items and the creative specials offered by Chef-Owner Shari. It is a comfortable, lively, welcoming place that never disappoints.

Would have given five stars except portions were extremely small for the price point, additionally it took quite a while kitchen to table.

Shari, the server and other's were personable and attentive, anticipating our needs.

Extremely small portions destroyed the experience completely.

Great dining experience on a busy Friday night. Nice atmosphere, great service and wonder food. My husband had Linguini and Clams, while I had the Osso Bucco. Both were very well turned. We will return. Thanks

This was our first visit. I guess I had been expecting a bit more upscale than it is, but rapidly adjusted. They do fit the maximum number of people in. Lots of large tables, can be tight to walk between. They need the tables and people kept coming in the door. We were on the edge of the room, bench on one side, 2 chairs on the other. Just be careful as your jacket can fall down behind the bench. I had soup to clear up my head which was a bit stuffy from a cold. The other three shared the cold shrimp appetizer and loved it. My sister and brother had the same dish, one was over noodles and one was over risotto. They both loved theirs. My husband had the osso bucco - very different presentation and a bit salty, but he loved it. I had pasta with a bolognase sauce - excellent. Service was good - had a short wait for the check as a large table was ordering. Would go back.

If one could give a sixth star, Baci would get it hands down. The owners are extremely personable and cordial. Service is excellent, the food is memorable. One can't miss from their extensive menu. We love everything about Baci. It has become our go-to choice at least half the time we dine out in Healdsburg. It is a local's favorite year-round. GO --- You will be very glad you did!

Great selections for everyone.
Some entree portions are pretty small and others are large. Veal dish had small serving of meat and the lamb shank was enough for 2 people to share, the person that ordered the veal filled up with some of the lamb.
Friendly staff and passionate chef. The chef stops by tables from time to time. 😊
Popular with regular customers.
Make reservations.

I hadn't been to Baci in a couple of years, but remembered how delicious it was and decided to have my birthday dinner there. It was every bit as wonderful as last time, and I won't wait so long for the next! My boyfriend had the lamb shank with mushrooms, and I had the pappardelle with lamb & mushroom special - both were exceptional. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and generously brought tastes of several wines so we could find the best match. The owner are truly hospitable and checked to be sure we were enjoying our experience. I also received a slice of tiramisu with a birthday candle and a song : ) If you've not been, put it on your list of places to try - you wont' be disappointed.

We love Baci and obviously many many others do as well. We enjoy our reservations on off nights best of all. It’s far quieter, the mood and atmosphere is far more relaxed, we see more old friends from the community and of course the food is superlative regardless of an “off” or “on” night.

Monday nights are prime rib night! That’s enough reason to go to Baci right there, but it’s also crab season so cioppino is back on the menu. As always the service was outstanding and, because we are locals, we can go back anytime!
