Baci’s specializes in catering! We specialize in drop off and full service catering. Please contact us to discuss your catering theme and we will be happy to plan your event. We require a minimum order of $100 for catering. Catering prices mostly based on entree size portions. Pricing will be lower in many cases if ordering is made in the form of platters and chaffers. For example, our pasta and salads are priced as entrees. We can cut both prices per person if you order on platters and chaffers because each plated food portion would be less than ordering Ala carte.

Baci is one of our favorite restaurants! Always good service and good food. We love sitting outside in the warm weather. Inside it is usually a bit too noisy, I don’t think there is a fix for this however, it’s the acoustics of the room.

Surprised my wife to dinner tonight for Valentine’s Day. We are locals and eat in several downtown Pleasanton restaurants.

Our dinner was going well until one of the servers spilled a hot cioppino soup on my brand new Erodi Pisano jacket and pants.

I know that accidents happen, but I was expecting someone to just say the word—“sorry.” The server did not apologize. He just said, “don’t worry, we will pay for dry cleaning.”


This was very disappointing as now I have to take my jacket to the cleaners and also totally ruined our Valentine’s evening. For this, I will not come back to Baci. I was not expecting for them to comp or discount my meal. All I wanted was an apology.

We made an early reservation to avoid the expected crowd for Valentine's day. We had to wait for almost 30 minutes before we were seated. Other than that initial annoyance, everything went smoothly. The menu had a good variety of choices, the service was professional and friendly and the quality of food and portions were very good.

My wife and I had a pre-valentine dinner here. The food was excellent. The lobster ravioli was very good and the steak was just as good. You could not ask for better service and the restaurant was romantically lit. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends.

Food was good but the restaurant is a bit loud when you are having a conversation at your table. Overall the food was good and the evening enjoyable.

Nice place, friendly staff and good food—BUT pls stay away from the advertised “special” 2”powerhouse for $60, disappointing to get a 1/2” steak.

I had the rack of lamb...very good. My husband had the clam linguini and he said it was ok. My apple galette wasn't cooked long enough and it was served long after my husbands dessert.
