Chicken Milanese was not at all what it should be. I had to ask for paper napkins to blot out the oil and the batter was not crisp as it should be. For $26 they should have removed it from my bill. The waiter just said he was sorry but never sent over the mgr. don’t put Milanese on the menu if the cook doesn’t know how to make it.

The high point of the experience was the service. The food was good, and we were able to get in earlier than our reservation. We started off with a basket of some chewy breads, which I liked. They had a good food selection and a fair wine list. My husband really loved his short ribs, and my chicken was okay, but I probably would order something different next time.

In our view, the Baci Cafe & Wine Bar is the best restaurant in Healdsburg. Not only are all of the menu items uniquely presented but they are exceptionally tasty. The owners make a special effort to get to know their customers and not only chat with them during their visit, but make them feel like family on their return visits.

Baci was recommended to us by a shop owner in Healdsburg and so glad we followed her suggestion. Everything about this place was fantastic! My husband’s short rib dish was scrumptious and my tagliatelle with fish was to die for. The salad, dessert and wine were fab as well. Would definitely go back! Great meal and experience!

Baci was outstanding! The service was super personal and the food was outstanding with one exception: the gnocchis were a bit heavy. My only real concern was the parking which , optimally, was the area/lot south of the restaurant and town square. I'd do it again for sure!

With wonderful food, outstanding service, a great menu, and a robust wine list, there's nothing not to love about Baci, our favorite Healdsburg-area restaurant. It's a fun, relatively informal dining experience, just the right combination of friendliness and professionalism. Every course is perfectly timed and executed. The menu is fit for foodies as well as those who just want some amazing Mediterranean comfort food surrounded by family and friends. Highly recommended in every respect.

What a pleasant surprise -- even though we go to Healdsburg often, we had never dined here but needed a reservation so that we could engineering our timing with a concert for Jazz Festival. The place is pretty non-descript from the outside and feels a bit like a supper club to me so I was slightly concerned when we first walked in......but was quickly turned around because the wine list was great and vast, the pasta melt in your mouth delicious, the sole was tender, and the salad was also fantastic! Three of us ordered off the specials menu which was seasonal and superb. I would not hesitate to dine here again and again and again.....

We can count on Baci for a great meal so it’s our favorite place to go with friends. We really appreciate the excellent attentive service of the friendly wait staff. The food is delicious, and the chef is creative about accommodating my allergy to the onion family. Chef’s wife at the front of the house recognized us as we walked in, assured me that the chef was aware of the onion issue without my prompting, and reassured me that Chef could accommodate me with a special preparation of most any dish on the menu. The veal piccata was just delicious, and the Caprese salad was perfect for a starter. The beet salad was amazing too according to our guests.
The only issue is that it is very loud with other diners enjoying their meals as well. It’s a little hard to converse, but it feels like a friendly party rather than a roaring rock concert, so loud but not uncomfortable.

Thank you for a great dinner!

The service was great from the time we walked in, to the time we left. On a Saturday showed up at 5:45pm, it was quiet and nice. Closer to 6:45pm it got a little louder and busier. Not to loud though, we could still hear each other talk. Food, Service Hospitality were well worth the prices. Definitely on our good list.

We came in after a full day of wine tasting and having had a delicious dinner at another restaurant the night before . That restaurant was also delicious, so we were expecting a let-down since we were also a bit full of wine.
We absolutely loved our meal. We shared a lovely salad (and I'm picky about salads), and a pea-puree stuffed ravioli (on the spring specials menu). Both were spectacular! Past was perfectly al dente, filling and light sauce was a spring flavor explosion on the mouth. Perfect textures and flavors.
We ordered the chocolate mouse for dessert, which was plenty large enough to share, and it was AMAZING! (Did my hubby order his own dessert? I think so, but I liked mine enough not to even try his!). This layered chocolate mouse also had a crunch element (still cannot decide what it was)_ that really set it off from other chocolate mouses I've had.
We will definitely recommend Baci to others. The only thing I wished for was a cocktail (but they only serve beer and wine), as I was a little wined out.
Thanks for a wonderful experience!

My wife's appetizer, Bruschetta, was way too oniony and she did not like it. The gnocchi bolognese was with Kobe beef so good, but not really a classic bolognese by any means. Plus it was pretty expensive for a bolognese. The pasta pomodoro was small but good, made much better because our server suggested adding shrimp to the dish, which was a good call, although each ship was $4 more, so pricey. The pea shoot ravioli special was fantastic and the highlight of the meal.
The food here was overall good, but too pricey for what you get to strongly recommend it. It seems it is more of a touristy place rather than a classic italian eatery. Too bad
