Baci Bistro and Bar
Love this place!
Great place for groups and very good / attentive service.
We were a large group of 10 women. The service was excellent and we enjoyed to food.
Celebrated my and my daughter's bday at Baci - food was delicious and they beautifully accommodated my mom who is in a wheelchair.
I received a bill for $377.97.
I left an $80.00 Tip.
When I got home I noticed that the restaurant had already included a service charge of $53.36 which was 18% of the food cost.
I would now like to get my excess tip back' please.
The restaurant should advise customers of this.
There was only one waiter and the restaurant was full. Service was good but slow.
Nice vibe and good food.
Amazing food and service!
Celebrated a friends’ birthday at Baci Bistro and Bar. We received excellent service, drinks and food! Had a great time!
The food was very good to excellent. The lamb shank was outstanding. It took quite a while to get our food. we had to get to a play at 7 pm and our reservation was at 5:30 pm. We barely made it. Service was good but a little sow.
This was my first visit to Baci Bistro and Bar and it was a great experience overall. It was a quiet yet lovely spot (it was a rainy Tuesday at lunch so I am sure other times would be busier and nosier) and the food was very tasty. The wait staff was attentive and courteous - all in all a very very good experience and I will definitely return.
Food was tasty, but too noisy. We were hoping to have an intimate dinner but it was so loud we had difficulty having a conversation. We will not go back.
We were celebrating my Dad's 88th b-day. When we arrived it was extremely noisy due in part to a large party in the middle of the dining room. While considering the alternative of outdoors on a chilly afternoon, the waitstaff immediately offered to make it warm and comfy. He set us up between two outdoor heaters and brought out 4 large blankets to take the chill off. Turned out to be a perfect solution and we enjoyed a nice lunch with good food and good service.
Staff is fantastic, food amazing and a super fun upbeat atmosphere!
We had a wheelchair friend with us...a really tight fit. I don’t recommend trying it. The service, though, was excellent and the food was good. We all had lunch entries. I had the BLTA...bacon, lettuce, tomato and avacado. It was quite fresh and tasty. My husband had the chicken salad. He really liked the dressing. We tried some dessert. I had molten chocolate cake with ice creme. It was killer. All in all, it was a nice experience.
Excellent cioppino with nice variety of seafood. Rack of lamb was perfectly done to requested pink middle. Nice selection of wine by the glass.
Service personnel were all friendly and accommodating
Website menu was cheaper then the actual menu. One might call that a bait and switch or it just might be laziness on the restaurant' part, i.e. not updating the website menu.
We love Baci and go on a fairly regular basis. Tara is the best bartender and server. Really cute homey ambiance where you feel like family.
Great service and ambiance with delicious food! My boyfriend and I had a nice time!
Service was extremely slow but great food
Great variety of food to accommodate any taste buds, friendly service, wilingl to change things up to meet your dietary needs, and food is excellent !
The last 2 times I have been to Saturday brunch, the service and food have been excellent.
Brunch was very nice! Bottomless mimosa, fried egg avocado toast,both yummy!
My first visit to Baci was very enjoyable. The most important thing is that the food was excellent and obviously freshly prepared for our table. The entrees we're so generous in size that we had to pass on dessert, something I don't do often. We were well taken care of by the wait staff. The bread was fresh and tasty. A delightful lunch experience at Baci.
Love this place. Get the gnocchii
Too noisy, but food was great and service exceptional
This was our 2nd date at Baci. We arrived 15 mins early and were seated 30 mins after our 7pm reservation time. Bar service and drinks are excellent. Martini was strong and a Moscow Mule was good, Pecan crusted sea bass was phenomenal as were the chili prawns and walnut nocci.
The server did not write down our order, which resulted in the wrong salad and missing appetizer.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Pleasanton. The staff are always wonderful and of course, the food is amazing.
Only concern is the noise level; hard to have a quiet conversation although this does not deter me from returning time and time again.
Incredibly poor service for our table trying to get to theater performance- arrived 2 hours before performance with hostess acknowledging our timeline. Blackened rockfish with horrid, rushed spices, placed on crunchy uncooked risotto and rack of lamb burnt on outside, raw on inside after 12 minutes with others having food, bartender is also waiter so ordering drinks delays service of essential food items, manager horrible customer service and didn’t live up to food credit promise . RUN from this place.
The noise level was really high but that could have been for all the holiday parties. Food was very tasty - fresh ingredients. Our table was right in front oof a live Christmas tree. Nice.
Excellent food and beverage service. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner.
Good spot. Good, service, room, all good
I recommended this place to my boss for our Christmas luncheon. She was very impressed with the service, food, ambiance, and charm of this Italian restaurant. The menu had some unique items and everything we ordered was packed with flavor and a high level of detail in the presentation that wowed us with each plate. Absolutely 5 stars for Baci! Thank you for a wonderful time!
Love going to Baci Bistro. Service was slow and was rewarded for the wait with a wonderful meal and dessert.
Amazing food. Actually really amazing food. Superior wind list, wonderful ambiance and friendly professional service. They do everything right!
The food and service was great, but the noise level was unacceptable. Couldn’t even talk to the person next to you unless you were yelling. I ended up with a headache and exhausted. I’m sorry, but I couldn’t recommend Baci Bistro without warning them about the noise level.
We have been going there for a "Christmas" lunch for many years. We live in San Jose and the other couple live in Oakdale, so it is a nice half way location for us.The food was delicious yesterday! the Desserts were terrific. Lots of good choices!
But.....the service was very slow. You really needed another server on for that many people in the restaurant. Big groups take a lot of time and you had 2 big groups when we were there.
Our waiter was very pleasant, but you could tell he needed help!
