Diner Reviews
  • "Our favorite restaurant in Healdsburg. The food is great and prepared to order by the chef, who is one of the owners. He comes out on the floor regularly to ask how you enjoyed your meal. His wife is front of the house, giving a warm welcome, and she has a great memory for returning guests. A good wine list, and a reasonable corkage policy in the wine country: $15 per bottle which is waived if you buy a bottle from them too."

  • "Tasty. Open table, I don't have time for a long review, if you keep asking for a review for more than 50 charactors, I don't participate anymore."

  • "Baci was recommended by our host, Jerry Messina, of Villa Bella Messina and exceeded all our expectations. There were 4 of us dining and we were celebrating my birthday. We were greeted by the owner and a hostess very warmly and had our choice of tables. From salad to entree, we all agree it was a most memorable evening. We will be back!"

  • "My wife ordered orchestra with broccoli I that had a nice sauce. I had rigatoni with fennel sausage that was scrumptious."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We enjoyed Baci Café and Wine Bar very much. We split the house salad, which was excellent. The rigatoni was seasoned very well. The veal saltimbocca was also excellent...not overdone, or fried, like I have experienced in other Italian restaurants. When in Healdsburg, consider this Café...it is well worth it."

  • "There were 7 of us from SF to celebrate my brother's bday. Baci was actually our 2nd choice as our 1st choice couldn't accomodate us until the next day. At Baci, we were greeted by the beautiful Hostess (who is the owner) with such warmth, friendliness, and hospitality. We've never been to Baci but they made us feel like regulars. Our waitress Sheri was attentive, funny, charming, and warm. Our sommelier John recommended the Rochioli Pinot Noir 2012 which was excellent! The food was excellent. We'll definitely be returning to Baci and recommending it to everyone. Ironically, our dining experience at our 1st choice the very next day was good but nowhere as fine as Baci. We ordered the same wine but for some reason it seemed better at Baci."

  • "Authentic northern Italian food, excellent home made pastas especially the gnocchi. If you like veal it's a must order at Bacci. Fun atmosphere for all ages. We'll definitely return. Only negative is that it's on the pricey side."

  • "Our friends had not been here before. We all thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. All the veal dishes including the Veal Parmesan with Spagetti Bolognese, were excellent. Service by our waitress was attentive and the owners came to say hello snd ask if we were enjoying our meal. We will be back again soon as will our friends!"

  • "This place is a gem! What a fabulous experience we had from the moment we walked in the door. The hostess was so warm and inviting, she asked us where we prefered to be seated. Michael was our waiter and we felt as though we were his only table. He spent qualty time with us and addressed our every question and need. The food was amazing. I had the Lobster Ravioli and it was perfect! When you go you must try the peach dessert, so devine!"

  • "We (two couples) enjoyed a very relaxing dinner. Staff was vey attentive and friendly. Food was superb. We each had a separate itilian pasta dish and all were very tasty and prepared perfectly. Portions were the perfect size. We brought our own bottle of wine from Williamson Wineries and we're not charged a corkage fee due to a courtesy arrangement between the Restuarant and Winery. Would definitely recommend this Restuarant if you are looking for dinner in Healdsburg."

  • "Loved the menu so went here. The food was outstanding! Our waitress, Sheri, along with other table servers, offered prompt and impeccable service. The volume was loud, yet our table had enough space for intimate conversation for two. Too bad we don't live close enough to make this our frequent date-night restaurant."

  • "This is a great find, love it! We live in Santa Rosa, 15 miles away, and I wouldn't think twice about the extra effort to get here despite all the great restaurants close by us. Very accommodating to their guests. We were five and our server didn't make us order two appetizers to accommodate us all, she suggested picking three different ones and did a large plate so each of us could try one each. It was fun. She offered to do family style if we wanted that as well. We tried each others dishes and every one was awesome, great flavors! It's obviously a locals hangout because I watched the hostess (owner I believe) greet and hug many that came to dine as if they were old friends stopping by. Highly Reccomended, I'll be back!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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.]."

  • "We were greeted by the hostess who immediately wished my wife Happy Birthday. She escorted us to a private table as requested. The server arrived promptly and attended to our every need. Food was outstanding, evening wonderful!"

  • "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.""

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."
