Baci Bistro and Bar
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!
We were doing a belated birthday celebration for my Sister in Law.
Waiter was amazing!
Great place to join with coworkers for some good food and great ambiance.
Birthday lunch... never got refills until we asked another waiter, never got bread refills at all, took a while to get food, food great, we were told when seated you did something for birthdays never saw anyone after we paid... not cool
Baci is one of our absolute favorite restaurants! Dependable! Delicious dishes. Local produce whenever possible. Excellent wait people. Gracious. Helpful.
Small, classy bistro - quiet - excellent service. We will be back!!!!
Went there for my wife's birthday...great food and service!
I recommend this Bistro without a doubt. They are professional, care for each customer, REMEMBER when you return, and provide exceptional service. I will return often.
This was my first time here. I came with my four siblings for a birthday celebration. The atmosphere was perfect for this type of party and all in the party were totally impressed with the food and excellent service. We will definitely be back!
Food and wine were great, but it's definitely not a place to catch up with your friends. Seating is entirely too crowded and it is very loud. It's a high end restaurant, but had a bar packed with locals and a television that was very unnecessary for that size of a place. I expect much more of a comfortable ambiance with the prices they want to charge for their food. The server was very passive and got annoyed when we weren't ready to order. I won't return. That area is full of places with food of equal quality that are much more comfortable to take a friend.
This was our first time at Baci Bistro. All 4 of us were very happy with our menu selections. Two of us had the marinated, blackened chickened sandwich. It was fabulous. I would order it again it a minute & my dining companion felt the same!
Had reservations for 11:30
Got there at 11:28 and the guy was still vacuuming
Told us to stand outside while he vacuumed
I ordered the lobster ravioli
I think it was previously frozen not home made
Excellent! Super friendly staff and the owner was walking around interacting with the customers. Food was spectacular and the drinks were plentiful.
Big kudos to the bartender (Tara?) who kept us smiling all night. We will definitely be back!
Noise level too high to carry on a conversation.
Appetizer, entrees, desserts and drinks were all fresh, delicious and plentiful. Only been here 3 times in a few years, and every single time has been an absolute pleasure. Will be returning with more frequency, for sure!
Food was average. Ordered the blackened fish and it was way over done
Cute neighborhood dining with freshly prepared meals.
We've been there many times, one of our favorite places to eat just us, or with friends. Always good food, good drinks and excellent service.
We love Baci and have been going there for 10+ years for dinner. It's great for date night.
The food and service were great. The noise level was so terrible we left and went elsewhere for after lunch drink and dessert. It was just way way way too loud.
Sat us early and service was great. I will definitely go back.
Perfect place to dine for special occasions
Food was good - as one would expect in any restaurant. Service was a bit of a miss. Two servers working our table got a bit confusing who or even why we had tag team. One entrée came out wrong - by the time they corrected the mistake most of us were done with our meal.
our 2nd visit, had the lamb shank and ciopino, both were excellent. service perfect, outdoor seating really nice on a hot day, prices very good for the quality of food and service. great menu, going to try everything, then i can get back to my Chilean Sea Bass.
