Diner Reviews
  • "We heard rave reviews for Baci from lots of different people. I took my in-laws, to whom Italian food was a bit foreign, and they took great care of them. The service was outstanding and the food was pretty good. The gnocchi was perfectly cooked but the sauce was little flat and the ceasar salad was over-dressed and pedestrian. I would definitely return."

  • "Baci is a little gem in Healdsburg. The restaurant is warm and inviting. The service was excellent for a full house, and our waitress was engaging, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent. My wife had the "al forno" (cannelloni stuffed with dungeness crab), while I had pasta with scallops and mushrooms in a veal cream sauce. (yes, that's right veal cream sauce). The "al forno" was a little too rich, but the scallops were excellent. We also had the burrata and tomato caprese which were also fresh and delicious. The restaurant also has a wide variety of tasty deserts. They also had an excellent wine list, with a plethora of local wines from small wineries. If you are in the area, this place shouldn't be missed."

  • "After many visits over the last 2 years we can highly recommend the food, service, and wine list here. The Somm here is great at picking wines! Overheard winery owners seated at other tables - got to be good!"

  • "We've been to Baci several times and the food is always well prepared and the portions, generous. This last time I had the Linguine with Clams...I've never seen so many clams...a pounds worth...the sauce was very good. My husband had the Veal Parmigiano...excellent in quality and portion size."

  • "We introduced another couple to this favorite Italian place. Wished my husband would split since the helpings are very generous. He had the Veal Milanese and the women each had a pizza that two could easily share. The waitress led us to believe it was a personal size. Not so. Very tasty, however. Kendal Jackson employees were having a party in the bar so it became quite noisy as more people drifted into the place. A good idea to go early [5:30 p.m.]."

  • "The Bruschetta was very tasty and excellent, lots of garlic. The presentation and combination of flavors in the beet salad was excellent. I had the lobster ravioli's which were outstanding. My husband had Bolognese Gnocchi which was excellent. He also had the insalata mixed salad which was very good. We definitely would return!! Service also excellent. Our waitress & team provided excellent service."

  • "The fabulous menu makes it difficult to choose. Every item we ordered was delicious right through dessert. Everything is fresh and made from scratch. We had pastas and main course veal and halibut that were both perfectly prepared. I would go back just to try one of the salads I saw being delivered to the table next to ours. The service is friendly, attentive, and efficient. Overall an excellent experience and I would go back and invite friends to join me."

  • "We were visiting the area and decided to make Baci our first stop. What a good decision. Very good food and good service. Seafood tagliatelle was particularly good and the chef accommodated my wife's allergy without hesitation, even checking with her to make sure what he was suggesting would be acceptable. As I said upon leaving "You have ruined us for the rest of our visit to Healdsburg.""
    Dined on 6/9/2014
  • "We had a great meal, service and wine here. The ambience, friendly service, wine advice and selection, and then a varied menu and excellent diner made this a very repeatable experience, our best in Healdsburg. Oh and the price is reasonable for the quality of the food and experience."

  • "Wow...I picked this restaurant based on it's great reviews. And, the reviews were spot on! Nine of us for dinner. Place was packed at 6:45 when we arrived on a Saturday night. Table was ready and waiting. Everyone ordered different items and everyone said all choices were wonderful. The service is OUTSTANDING too. Well...no wonder every aspect of this restaurant is excellent...Owners are on site and play a big role in the restaurant management. Chef and Hostess! This will be our "go to place" whenever we visit Healdsburg for sure. We would have eaten there again during our visit but it was closed."

  • "We found this place on our own but when we mentioned our reservation to our wine country driver/guide, he quickly said it was probably the best restaurant in Healdsburg everything was great!"

  • "We went during Spring Break, so the restaurant was very busy at that time. My kids had the Gnocchi alla Bolognese, and I had the Osso bucco. All entrees were delicious. The owner/server is from Italy. He and his wife take pride in their authentic dishes. They were extremely friendly and the service was superb!"

  • "This was our second trip to Baci, and we'll return. The food is very good and the service is pleasant and attentive (although, oddly, the only pepper for our salads was from the small grinder on the table). The only issue I have is how loud this place is -- we ate early but there was one table occupied a few down from us with a group of adults who forgot their inside voices -- and their chatter and cackling filled the entire place. That's what you get from 100% hard surfaces with nothing to soften it. It means you cannot have a quiet dinner, period."

  • "Baci never disappoints - in fact, it is always delightful. We have eating our way around much of the menu and have enjoyed everything we've tasted. The wine list is very good, with some outstanding local selections, and the sommelier is an expert in helping the diner to find the right choice for their menu selections. We consider Baci to be one of the go-to choices in Healdsburg for a guaranteed great night out."

  • "We loved the food at this restaurant. My husband had the special ravioli and I had a chicken dish - both fabulous. Also, found a great wine that I hadn't tried before (Mueller - Emily's -- Pinot Noir). Would recommend this restaurant to those who love good food. A little bit noisy for quiet conversation but we enjoyed people watching as well."

  • "I was brought up on my Italian Grandmothers cooking-most Italian restaurants simply dont compare. Baci's was remarkable for the quality of food!! and... we had great fun here! We will absolutely return! Its a busy place- make reservations! Consider the specials--they were fantastic!"

  • "Baci is our favorite restaurant in Healdsburg and environs. The food is always delicious, the service impeccable,the value superb. We celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary there and Shaari, the owner, came out and spent time chatting with us, and they brought out a yummy creamy tiramisu with a candle in it to celebrate (at no charge). "

  • "The restaurant was located in a former feed mill and the roof beams were still visible. It was quite attractively decorated. Service was good, but not stuffy. Theme was Italian with Primi, Secondi, etc. courses available. The veal shank was excellent. I had a special gnocchi with pulled veal that was OK but sadly not amazing. Food was fresh and attractively presented. Prices on the food and wine menus were OK for the area. Many locals seemed to frequent the restaurant, which is always a good sign in a touristy area. I recommend reservations if you plan to visit. I would not hesitate to stop here again during a future visit."

  • "Being from Chicago we feel we know goood Italian restaurants. The restaurant is ownedthat's family that you can tell prides itself not only its food but it's service. Both are top notch! The veal was incredible as well as the little gem salad. The service was top notch.. Very accommodating to special requests! We loved it so much we went two days in a row! Also very vivacious atmosphere! Highly recommend!!!!"

  • "A very popular and busy restaurant, which can be loud at times with people enjoying themselves! Request to be seated in the smaller room to the right (next to the bar) which is quieter. Service is very polite, attentive, and quick. Their food is delicious, and prepared to perfection. Try the gelato sampler of 4 tiny gelato cones (flavors for you to select) as the perfect way to end a great meal. Large, free parking lot only a block away."

  • "Food, wine and service were great. The ravioli special was delicious. Our second time to eat here on our visit to Healdsburg. Only issue was a table next to us with 2 small children under the age of two. This isn't a place for children."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "We had the Carpaccio that was excellent. The Tri-Colora salad was overdressed. Then we for our entrée the pasta with the best bolonese sauce wcwe. Our waiter, Michael was not personable in the least but efficient enough, seemed to us that he was not that happy to be there. My suggestion would to be add White Paper on top of tables to add a brighter look to the space and make it look more special. Otherwise, we enjoyed our dinner."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "From the moment we were greeted until we walked out, we were treated like regulars even though this was our first time dining here. Baci was recommended by another diner who had just eaten here, and she suggested the veal. We both had veal but different dishes, and it was out of this world! They have an impressive wine list and spent much time helping us with our pairings. You cannot go wrong dining here."

  • "I always love Baci. I love the staff, the food, the local scene. I despise the noise level. I have been there just as a 2some and we can barely talk to each other. The servers have to yell! How I wish they would do something to minimize the hard surfaces and make it somewhat easier. Then it would be simply divine!"

  • "We had a wonderful time at Baci Cafe & Wine Bar. We were visiting Healdsburg and asked around for recommendations for dinner. Several people told us about Baci. They were right. The food is delicious and the service is great. I would recommend it to my friends and anyone else who asks."

  • "Whenever we are in Healdsburg we ALWAYS eat at Baci. The blood orange salad dressing is fantastic. Short ribs are great. If they have the Cioppino, be sure to order it.....wonderful! Lizbeth and her husband (the chef) are really friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome. "
    Dined on 5/18/2014
  • "As others mentioned, the noise level is exuberant. Oh, the food! Farm fresh, organic, creatively and thoughtfully presented, and perfect portions. The family effort and chef special touches throughout all our dishes were notable. We had the beet salad, burrata, gnocchi with short ribs in red wine reduction and the bolognese. The chocolate flourless decadence and really, really good coffee finished the meal. Looking forward to a return visit soon!"

  • "On Monday night of this week I had my usual night out at Baci and enjoyed the fresh fish. Then I read my e mail on Thursday and noticed that Baci had added some new specials to the menu! So, for the second time in a week I treated myself to supper out. The mais al forno turned out to be well worth the trip. Fresh corn, herbs, roasted in the horno oven. I'm sold! One of the best parts of the meal is having leftovers for lunch the next day. "

  • "My bride and I celebrated our 54th wedding anniversary at Baci Cafe and Wine Bar. We've enjoyed delicious meals at Baci before, so it was easy to decide to celebrate there. The staff greeted us with a warm welcome and the evening progressed nicely from there on. We shared a delicious beet salad and decided (maybe we've grown closer over the years) to both order one of the specials of the day, the Petrole sole stuffed with crab. It was delicious. The restaurant honored the occasion with a complimentary serving of tiramisu. Lovely evening, delicious meal and delightful server."

  • "I had the seafood risotto with sun dried tomato, shrimp, scallops & calamari. It was luscious. I highly recommend it. My husband had the chicken breasts with polenta. The polenta was good and the sauce on the chicken was so tasty I had to use the bread to mop it up and get every last bit. Both dishes were well worth the price. My favorite dessert is tiramisu so I took an order home to eat when I wasn't stuffed. It was ok. The taste was good but the balance of mascarpone to lady finger was way off. Over half of the dessert was mascarpone, too much fluff, not enough cake."

  • "There is much to love about Baci.. the service is professional yet maintains a warmth that is so welcoming. I always notice that the staff is smiling as the move thru the restaurant. The menu is loaded with dishes that highlight fresh, local ingredients and creatively honors it's deep italian roots. We just love eating here! On this celebratory visit, the bolognese was superb but the house made gnocchi was the star of the table. Looking forward to next time."

That was Great! most places forget. The service was fantastic, food was also fantastic I had the lamb shank which was perfectly cooked. It was alittle loud but then again the place was really busy...Friday nights."

  • "Baci is one of many very good to excellent restaurants in Healdsburg. The wine list excels too, with many local wines, some of which are generally not found on restaurant wine lists. Plus, equally important, the markup over retail is very reasonable, to the extent that it makes more economic sense to buy wine at the restaurant than bring your own and pay the corkage."
