I highly recommend you dine in this wonderful restaurant.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAn excellent eveningMy husband and I chose Baci for our anniversary--after over four decades, I figure we're due a celebration on occasion. The restaurant in Healdsburg is attractive and comfortable. There's a definite sense of welcome and service was spectacular, but nothing can top the food. Absolutely delicious with beautiful presentation and very reasonable prices. We will definitely be back.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThursday NightEvery bite was a wonderful experience. The menu was well thought out without being too large - the food was fresh and expertly prepared. The waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. There were 5 of us and the restaurant was full but all courses were served appropriately from a timing perspective and were the proper temperature. All 5 of us loved our apps (loved the Barrata), enjoyed every bite of our entrees and the desserts were fabulous (creme brulee cheesecake and cannolis). The wine list was appropriate for the menu and the decor comfortable and well thought out. We will keep this restaurant high on our list.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBaciGreat Italian food, pizza's and over the top wine list of over 350 wines.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinner afterHad a wonderful dinner after a full day of wine tasting. Would definitely go there again. I had the Tagliatelle con Frutti di Mare (Gulf Shrimp, Scallop, Calamari, Roasted Tomato in a Light Lobster, Saffron, White Wine Tomato Sauce with Basil Chiffonade) which I would have again. My husband had the Halibut fish special and almost licked the plate clean.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWarm hospital receptionWe had a wonderful experience with great personal service and hospitality.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Italian food, greatExcellent Italian food, great service, excellent wine list at reasonable prices featuring both local and Italian choices.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & service, but noisy.Loved the food, service was excellent for table of 6. It got very loud on this Friday night which made it hard to converse with my tablemates. The noise level is the only reason I docked the overall rating one star.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and service,Outstanding food and service, cute spot, but super loud.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visit Sonoma wine countryWe visit Sonoma wine country once a year and we always make sure to have dinner at Baci Café & Wine Bar. The pasta is excellent and beats any of our hometown NY restaurants. The price is right and the service is great as well. See you next year.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. FourGreat food and service. Four of us all had great entries and appetizers. The only knock, a minor one, would be that the bruschetta wasn't that special and the brownie dessert was a bit dry. But definitely an overall great meal. We are anxiously awaiting their planned remodel to improve the noise problem - it can get really noisy, even when not completely full.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful selection of pastaWonderful selection of pasta related entrees, all beautifully prepared and presented. Good food-friendly wine list.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful Saturday night.The restaurant was busy throughout the night, but no one seemed frazzled. All of our dishes were very tasty. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, but didn't hover over us needlessly. Even though the owner was busy overseeing the house, she still took the time to stop by and have a nice chat. We would certainly love to return to Baci, and we would highly recommend it to others.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely worth trying.Very good meal. The chef and the manager are husband and wife, and their 20s son is one of the wait staff. All were extremely personal, helpful, and knowledgable. We had was a good beet salad, not the best I've ever had, but solid. Our two mains were gnocchi with bolognese sauce. The gnocchi were not super light, which some prefer, but rather of medium consistency which I like. It was a large portion and bolognese sauce was traditional and fine. We also had a short ribs over polenta with spinach. Quite good.... just like my mother never made. Nice wine list at fair prices. We will definitely return.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of four diners orderedOur group of four diners ordered four different starters and four different entrees. We ate every bite of every dish, except for the bone in the fabulous osso buco. This restaurant has fabulous standards for service and food. VERY highly recommended.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat birthday experienceWe've been to this restaurant a few times and have always been impressed. Food was beautifully presented, creative, and perfectly seasoned. It was my wife's birthday, so they gave us a private table in the front window so that we could watch the passers-by as we ate. And they gave her a special dessert, too! It was excllent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are Healdsburg locals whoWe are Healdsburg locals who love Baci's and return as oftenas possible with our neighbors, friends and business colleagues.

Very helpful with gluten free diet3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMNever here before and pleasantlyNever here before and pleasantly surprised. Seems like a local favorite to many. Food was a cut above, especially for the price and some great local wines.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experience, againOur favorite restaurant in Healdsburg. Outstanding menu and specials. Excellent wine list selection and prices. They seated our party of 6 in the private Wine Room since no one had booked it that evening. Carpaccios, seasonal salads, and burrata were very well prepared. Main courses of rack of lamb, veal liver, seasonal ravioli, chicken, gnocchi, and loin of lamb were all fantastic. And my wife ordered affogato for dessert - magnificent ending to the meal. The staff is incredibly friendly, the food perfectly prepared, and they don't rush you (unlike some wine country restaurants). Only complaint was by two in our party that didn't care for the rose petal flavored water (they could have asked for some other tap water).3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNot only was the food delicious,Not only was the food delicious, but the service was outstanding. Sheri was very helpful with recommendations, and she was the perfect balance of being interactive, but also recognizing appropriate times to approach our table. I would not hesitate to return.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe strongly recommend Baci Cafe.Had a great dinner on Friday. Started with the onion soup the veal parmigiana. Both were excellent. My wife had the Caesar salad and a pasta with mixed seafood. Loved them both. The tiramisu was also very good. We had an 8:30 reservation but after flying cross country tried to be seated at 7:30 and were easily accommodated. Our waitress was also most helpful with area attractions. On Saturday night we assumed we could just walk up and be seated. Turns put it is restaurant week and there were no tables available. The owner bent over backwards to accommodate us and kept apologizing for keeping us waiting. We were seated in 15 minutes and enjoyed our meals immensely. I had the seafood dish from the night before and my wife had a chicken dish.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMThoroughly enjoyed our 3 courseThoroughly enjoyed our 3 course fixed price menu with wine pairing.
