We went for Valentine's Day and the experience was wonderful. My lady was given a rose by the staff at the end. The food was plentiful and delicious and we had leftovers to bring home. Also, it is pricey so don't go if you are on a budget.

Wow what can I say. Not into the chain restaurant type dinner. Local family owned place. Didn't even look at the menu. The owner asked what I liked and boy did he deliver. Skip the other places and go here for sure. Can't wait to go back. Enjoy Baci!

I can't say enough about the thrill of our meal this evening at Baci. The garlic bread was served hot and very fresh--the best and freshest of any we had anywhere in Little Italy. The salad had abundant freshly grated cheese and the freshest arugula imaginable....Our entree was over-the-top delicious--Pollo Toscano. Freshly prepared with abundant prosciutto and gorgonzola cheese oozing... More

Met a local area client on a mid day week and Tony and his staff were outstanding. Made us feel very welcome as if we'd been there a million times despite this being our first time - my client was impressed and helped us get to know one another in a great place!

My husband and I dined here over the holidays and we enjoyed it! I had the veal chop and it was very tender. They have a very good wine selection and the tira misu was delicious.

Went New Years Eve so don't know if it was the regular menu. But if you see Scampi in Lobster Sauce, Rucola Salad, Short Ribs on Risotto, the Papperdelle, Gnocchi Quattro Formaggi, any dessert or basically, I guess, anything order it!! Cooked to perfection, beautifully sauced, fab garlic bread. Service paced beautifully.

White tablecloths. Attentive waiters. Fabulous food. Baci has it all -- so it was a great place for two friends and me to have our annual holiday dinner. The ambience is "old school," and I mean that in the best way. No glitz or glam, but elegance for sure. We started with a burrata appetizer (a special that night) that... More

Our family vacation in SD coincided with our five-year wedding anniversary, so I needed to plan a special dinner for the wife sans the kids. Baci did not disappoint. Our waiter was very personable and attentive, but not 'hovering.' The staff reserved a cozy booth for us without me even having to ask. The decor reminded me of East Coast... More

Great place to take a group of 30-40 for a casual business dinner. The food and service was great and the ambiance in the private room made for a great place to entertain our clients.

Baci reminds me of some of the restaurants I remember from the old days in San Francisco...fine Italian dining, impeccable, pleasant and formal wait staff, and the booths with red leather you see in films. We had actually planned to go to another restaurant when my daughter decided she wanted Italian food (she grew up in Italy). We ordered pasta... More
