Diner Reviews
  • "Mussels were not on the Lunch menu. I asked Carlos our server and he said if I wanted them he would have them prepared. They were great. I also had the Crab cakes, which were very good."

  • "Great overall meals, I have had the Shrimp Ravioli twice outstanding. They also have good fish dishes. Overall a little loud but a nice spot to eat either inside or out."

  • "We took Mom here for a birthday dinner. Everything was fantastic, especially Mary's outstanding, friendly service. She made the experience extra special, and Mom was thrilled. We'll be back soon. PS try the caprese starter. It's amazing."

  • "It's a great place to eat good food in a quiet (at least at midday on Sunday) place. A friend and I lingered over lunch and enjoyed pleasant conversation without being rushed. Great Sunday!"

  • "We used to go to this location when it was Strizzis. This place is hip and fun inside. Kitchen is right there so you can see the food being prepared. Wonderful, attentive service. Great menu with lots to choose from. I had the special (cajun chicken with linguini and my family all had the salmon special (stuffed with crab) it also came with risotto. Prices are ok....$15-25.00. Salads are separate. They also had chicken and beef dishes with an Italian flair. I would come here again."

  • "We enjoyed our whole experience, but can be a bit noisy since it is more 'family friendly'. Pleasanton location has same great food & wine with a more 'couple friendly' feel and quieter noise level. "

  • "My parents and I really enjoyed Baci. We tried it for lunch ,which was excellent, and the service was great. My mother enjoyed ]he Tuna BLT (tasty), my father the Steak sandwich [.Delicious and tender) and I tried the Club sandwich (all fresh vegetables and juicy meats.] Fresh bread and the shoe string fried onions we're the best. We definately would go back to try the earlybird."

  • "This was a horrible surprise. This place was awful. Its more like an expensive sports bar. I chose this for Mothers day based on the Baci Pleasanton and the reviews. Cant see how those people were in the same place as I was. My mother was in a wheel chair and I was using a cane and they tried to seat us at the tall bar tables. Wow! Use a little common sense. Lamb was anemic and tough. I had called before going and was told it was the normal menu with some additional specials. That wasn't the case it was a small special menu with nothing that I could eat. The only good thing about this place was the Tiramisu. Plus the service was pretty good but I will not go back again."

  • "We have been here a couple of times. The food is always solid however they did overcook my veal parmeson. They did get me a new dish once I mentioned it. My only comment is that it is a little expense for the décor / café style. Was talking to a couple of neighbors about the restaurant and we were all in agreement about this. Close by and convenient. "

  • "Passed this place several time when dining at the nearby pizza place. After checking out the menu, I finally decided to give it a try. The menu had great variety, our server was fun and attentive and the food was tasty. My boyfriend has already picked out what he wants to try next time! We'll be back! "

  • "The server was very attentive. The food was good, we had the calamari and my friend and i had salads (berries w/chicken - although the chicken was a bit dry, and Caesar salad), both were good. I would definitely come back."

  • "Excellent selection of salads and sandwiches for lunch. Particularly enjoy the berry salad with greens and options for adding chicken, salmon, prawns, etc. This day the barbecue pork sandwich was unusually dry - the first time that's happened when we've ordered it."

  • "First time visiting. Nice atmosphere. Cozy deco, warmth color. Warm bread, my fave! Would return without kids next time to see any difference with experience."

  • "Food and Service were very good - I thought the menu would be Italian and there are plenty of great Italian dishes, but there is also a wide variety of other food you wouldn't expect in an Italian restaurant e.g. Pulled Pork Sliders. They also had a good selection on the kids menu."

  • "Food is good / service is good - nice people but the flavors need more pop or punch - the meat sauce is so simple and basic - no garlic or pepper - just plain wish this location would add some ambiance similar to the Ptown location - - the Strip Mall location is bad enough - make it look / feel a bit less strip mall diner-ish please"

  • "We haven't been disappointed yet with our food at Baci's. My husband had the chicken sandwich with the house salad, and I had the asparagus beet salad with chicken. Both were very good!! The only slightly negative comment I have is that the salad dressing is rather thick; we couldn't pour it onto our salads (we had to use a spoon). However, I easily remedied the situation by just adding some to my plate along with the balsamic vinegar that's always at the table, and it was good. We will most definitely be back soon!"

  • "Everyone had a wonderful meal but were all envious after tasting my choice of Macaroni & Cheese. To put it simply-it was to die for!!!"

  • "Had another very good experience at Baci. I requested a tall table and it was ready and waiting for us. The manager is always on hand and she does an excellent job to ready the place, greet customers and provide excellent services. I have had 4 different servers now and I am happy with all of them. This night the appetizer crab cakes were out fast and tasted very good. I had the lamb and it was excellent. My wife had the sliced steak with pesto sauce and she liked it. Oh man, the chocolate molten cake............need I say more. I really enjoy Baci. By the way, it is a nice touch to keep an eye on the USA at the Olympics as we dine."

  • "Noisy, not romantic (Valentine's Day dinner), service adequate. We won't be going back. I placed a note when I made my Open Table reservation asking for a special dessert as this was the 15th anniversary of me proposing marriage to my wife. No dessert arrived."

  • "Food was excellent. We enjoyed pesto pasta and ciopino. Service was fast and courteous."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This is an Italian Restaurant lacking identity. Bright lit dining area. There are at least four gigantic flat screen TV's that hang over the kitchen and face the dining area. You think you are going in for an Italian meal, but you feel like your at a sports bar. Do not come here for a romantic quiet dinner. You can hear conversations on either side of your table. Children in the vicinity will compound the noise. Staff is young and seemed disconnected. We requested some acknowledgment of a birthday via our Open Table reservation. This was not noted by our hostess or wait staff. However, our waiter was very friendly. Food was average. Veal Piccatta seemed bland. Pricing was good. But it appears to come with compromise."

  • "If the rest of the menu is as good as the burger I had, this place is worth multiple visits. Possibly the best burger I've had in 10 years and very attentive service."

  • "While we've had dinner at Baci's a number of times, this was the first time visit our friends from Alamo. My friend and I decided to each order the Asparagus Beet Salad and split an appetizer of Thai Beef Kabobs, and we both thoroughly enjoyed our dinner choices! Our husbands ordered the Pesto Pasta and the Double Cut Pork Chop, but first started with the Tomato Basil Soup and Wedge Salad. Since there was nothing left on their plates, I think it's safe to say that they enjoyed their dinners....immensely! We will be back!!"

  • "Have never had a bad meal here. The service is excellent and well-coordinated. Friendly, helpful staff. Wonderful, expansive menu with lots of choices. Has take-out which is a plus. Will continue to dine here over and over."

  • "Great dining night at Baci. Although a rather new restaurant, my car has taken me there 5 times already. One of the best menus for me, as I can go seafood, steak, pasta or just their appetizers. I told my wife that I could eat there 30 days in a row. This time it was the massive prime rib dinner with the mashed. A cup of chowder was second on the list that followed some crab cakes. Excellent food and service. This time it was Michael as our server and he is excellent. The manager at BACI is very impressive as she greets you and also ends the visit with a "thank you for coming". She has a smile on her face and handling people is excellent as she handles numerous people and even will jump out and clear a table to help the staff."

  • "Our first trip to Baci -- seven of us.. Chose Baci because of the varied menu. The service was perfect and every plate arrived hot and delectable. The Grilled Salmon was outstanding, but so were the Lasagna, Pasta w/ Prawns, Chicken Parmesan. A Winner!"
    Dined on 12/24/2013
  • "This was the third time I've eaten at Baci's for lunch, and all occasions, I wasn't disappointed. During my first visit, I enjoyed their salmon sandwich which was really quite good. For my second lunch, I had their berry salad with chicken. Once again, a winner. And finally, I enjoyed their beet and asparagus salad with the addition of steak....I think I found my new all-time favorite! The asparagus was nicely grilled, and the combination of beets, mango, goat cheese (which had been rolled in black and white sesame seeds) was wonderful. Baci's is my new favorite neighborhood gem!"

  • "Had always heard good things about Baci in Pleasanton. Was excited that one had opened in Blackhawk. Tried it out for dinner with two friends. The butternut squash soup was outstanding as was the server Daryl. But my fish was dry, two others in our party had the Chicken Parm which didn't have nearly enough sauce. When they asked for more sauce they got a tiny dish with meat sauce instead of marinara that was called for on the menu. All in all a disappointing time and too little food for the $. The previous restaurant Struzzi's was much better and a better value."

  • "We had a very poor experience in the service and some of the food we were served. The restaurant didn't handle well our 16 persons group. We were declined for bread serving till everyone arrived. However, they were happy selling drinks to us on an empty stomach. We like to enjoy food & drink and not drinking only ! The server attitude throughout had annoyed the invited guests, they were all uncomfortable & had resulted in a very bad dining experience. We were brought the bill whilst deserts being served?! Almost being rushed out! A standard 18 % service was charged for a large group, but for a poor service/ attitude & one server this is unwarranted and undeserved. Manager was notified & trust they'll improve! Such a shame !"

  • "My husband and I came here with our two kids. The food was absolutely delicious and the portions were substantial. The kid's plate was not your average kid's plate. Very sizable portion for a great price. Mango ahi app as well as the steamed muscles were absolutely delicious. For my main dish, I had the linguini and clams - fabulous with just the right amount of heat. My husband had the steak which again was huge. Our server was extremely tolerant of our messy kids and brought their food quickly which we appreciated. Highly recommend."
