  • "Enjoy a lovely Italian dinner with much to choose from. A surprisingly moderate priced wine list compliments the meal. The wood burning oven is put to good use."

  • "My family and I just love going to Baci. Everything is well-prepared, the service is impeccable and it's really a treat. They are great at substitutions, food aversions, diet preferences, etc. Always eager to please. Try the pizza!"

  • "When you go to Napa/Sonoma, people always say, "You just HAVE to go to (insert Thomas Keller restaurant here)" And yes, its true. But don't discount the small, lesser known neighborhood spots in the area as well. Baci Cafe & Wine Bar is an awesome neighborhood restaurant with authentic italian cuisine with handmade pasta -always my weakness. I highly recommend to anyone visiting the area, and definitely look forward to coming back to try more of the menu!"

  • "The owners are warm and inviting; the chef owner makes visits to the table and hsi wife does an outstanding job of scheduling and seating in the busy restaurant. Food, while getting more expensive, is very tasty, w a large menu. Recommended Healdsburg gem."

  • "While the food wS excellent we waited 45min for our bruschetta appetizer. Another 25 for pasta dishes. Took nearly 2hrs for a two course meal. Completely unacceptable. We won't be back"

  • "Group of 8 that all thought their meals were excellent. The Sommelier was great and we loved all the wines he recommended. An easy 5 stars for food and drink. Not a cheap 3 course meal but well worth it."

  • "As a local, I'm lucky to enjoy meals at Baci with some regularity. It's like having dinner with "family." I can dine solo, take friends, or have a group celebration and it's always welcoming and comfortable. Shari and Lisbeth have been very creative lately with their specials menu.....in addition to the luxurious Monday prime rib, they have been offering luscious shrimp dishes with succulent fresh shrimp which Lisbeth special orders. This last week they added roasted fresh asparagus as an appetizer. Wow! The freshest fish, a lovely piece of Alaskan halibut was flaky and perfectly prepared. Who has it better than we do n Healdsburg? No one."

  • "A friend who lives near Healdsburg recommended this restaurant to us --- and the locals always know the best finds. This was one of our top 10 restaurants that we've ever had the pleasure of experiencing. Our server Sherry enhanced our meal as well as the sommelier who came to our table as soon as we finished ordering to help us select the perfect glass of wine to accompany our entrees. My husband had a seafood dish over noodles and I had Alaskan halibut served on a bed of risotto --- everything was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Tiramisu and a creme brulee cheesecake with coffee completed this memorable meal!"

  • "Noisy but delicious neighborhood hot spot, make sure to reserve. Reasonable for the quality of food and service, and location right in downtown Healdsburg. Wine prices especially reasonable; our Zin was only marked up $10 over the winery price. If it was close to home we would be regulars."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "We went because we had read such rave reviews. Both of our meals were fair. A bit bland, not too exciting, I could make better at home type of meals. Maybe we ordered the wrong dishes. Service was good."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Loved the Arugula salad, although it could have had a bit more Gorgonzola. The meat sauce on the pasta was just fantastic! Very flavorful, one of the best I've ever had. The family that runs the place is very friendly. The place is always packed, which is probably a good sign :) Highly recommend!"

  • "Had the flat noodles minus the pancetta (due to Lent)...small plate for twenty dollars for pretty much just noodles. Husband had thr seafood risotto which was tasty but pirtion was super small. The Brownie stack was good. Wish thr brownie had bern warmed up. Wehad to track down our waitress after waiting awhile for yhe check. On a Friday night it is louf and crowded."

  • "The food at Baci's was very good. We had a prosciutto appetizer and the Caesar salad. Both very good. We had the beef cheek ravioli and a sole stuffed with crab. Both were excellent. The noise level was rather high. Our seat backed up to a bench seat and the person sitting in the bench seat would have her hair over our table when she leaned back. That was the only thing that kept this from being a 5 star rating."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "The food and service were incredible. The wine steward was very friendly and helpful. Overall, the experience was wonderful and definitely would return. One minor criticism is that we were seated at the back of the restaurant, right by the kitchen, so there was a lot of traffic and noise. But this did not keep us from having a very enjoyable night out."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "for the pizza. One person had gnocci, another sole stuffed with crab and both were both found them excellent. The two of us who had pizza were disappointed however - found it uninspired with a bready, not crispy crust. Service was great and two diners were extremely happy, so just beware of the pizza."

  • "The staff, particularly the hostess and the waiter, were very accommodating and friendly. We asked for a table where we could easily converse with our guests, and the hostess gladly made the arrangements. The waiter was helpful in describing the dishes and offered perfect suggestions."

  • "They make the lightest pastas with delicious sauces, we took out of town guests and they were delighted with it, a local favorite for sure. The salads and pizza are also outstanding. Great wines too!"

  • "Great wine list, especially those locally available < $50.00/bottle. Extensive Italian menu- something for everyone; lots of choices. Our party of four had a variety of menu items, including the lamb shank, veal parmesan, rigatoni pasta with sausage, and petrale sole with lobster sauce special. All were excellent. Service was slow, but it was Barrel Tasting weekend, so somewhat understandable."

We had lamb shank (very tender with nice flavor) and seafood risotto (very tasty, but filling). Waitress was efficient and friendly. They gave us nice table in front by window as I requested quiet table to enjoy the birthday. Very reasonably priced for quality of food. Overall a lovely meal and the best we had in 3 nights in Healdsburg. Would definitely return."

  • "We booked on a friends recommendation and will thank them forever. Great service - knowledgeable wait staff who seem to have a great camaraderie and enjoy being present. Our food was almost delivered too quickly - but I can't knock them for that - we did not order in "normal" courses. Tiramisu is the best...OH...ON THE PLANET! We will be back. (And, yes, the tables are in an open room and the noise level can get loud, but in Europe that is the norm. Just know it's not necessarily the quiet, romantic wine country restaurant)."
