We had a very enjoyable evening at Bacci. The service was excellent. Our wait person answered our questions. We did not feel rushed. Food was brought in a timely way. We also enjoyed the advice of the friendly “wine guy”. They have an extensive list of choices. Thank you for a memorable time-the only meal we had in Healdsburg and we will return.

My fiancé and I went here for Valentine's day. It was very busy but we were able to get a table quickly and the service was excellent. Our waiter was very informative and receptive to our questions about some of the wine. My fiancé loved the carbonara, and I really enjoyed the lobster ravioli. The seating seemed a little tight, but wasn't unexpected and we were able to have conversation without having to shout across the table. This is a great restaurant for date night with romantic vibes and delicious food. We hope to come back in the near future!

One of the best restaurants I’ve been to in a while. The ambiance and food were outstanding. The owner greeted us personally and accommodated our request for a corner intimate table for our anniversary. Our server was fun and knowledgeable on describing food and wine list. I wish we could’ve tried everything on the menu. We will definitely be back.

Fantastic food!! If you love Italian you will love this place. The burrata appetizer was very good. The bolognese is to die for - meat is not ground but pulled. The orecchiette pasta had a delicate cream sauce, chicken, broccolini, sundried tomatoes, pancetta. Fabulous! We came in the off season and it was packed. Lots of locals, so you know it’s legit. We left full and happy.

I went there because they offer gluten free, but the waitress was not real clear on what gluten free was. She brought my Caesars salad with croutons. I asked to speak to the manager to make sure my meal would be gluten free and the owner came over, but she was really rude. They should not offer gluten free if they are going to be rude about it. Wish we would have went somewhere else.

We have been going to Baci for several years, we are locals, however, we have noticed that it is getting more touristy. The prices are way above what other places in Sonoma county, I feel they are catering to tourists more than locals, most of Healdsburg is . After completing our meal and dessert the wait staff was hovering giving us the feeling that they wanted us out so they could bring in more people. Granted , we weren’t going to stay there all night but after dropping $250+ it seemed a little rude. It’s funny, when I returned to work on Monday a coworker of mine was there the same night and had the same impression as us, he said it would most likely be his last time going. Overall, this will be our last visit, but I will recommend it to tourists as I am in the tourism business here in Sonoma county.

The service was great. The food was good to very good (I had the short rib). The tables are very small and we were cramped for space the whole time. The main problem with Baci is the prices...way over priced for the overall experience. You can get comparable food and service at other places for half to two thirds the price.

This was my (and our entire group’s) first time at Baci, and they did not disappoint! I made the reservation five days in advance after my go-to restaurants were already booked. I don’t know if reserving early had anything to do with this, but our group of seven was seated in a gorgeous, private dining room (I want that marble table!), which provided ample opportunity for conversation and laughter without having to yell over the busy Saturday night crowd. Our various servers were attentive without being overbearing, and very respectful. We were also treated to our own sommelier, who was personable and very informative without any of the condescension you would expect from the wine industry. The charming chef/owner also stopped by! And the food - TO DIE FOR! Everyone was thrilled and there were no leftovers. The wine list is extensive, with plenty of options for all tastes. They even had a locally produced Sangiovese, which isn’t always easy to find. Overall, this place and everyone in it made us feel so special. It was a celebration for my 30th birthday and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you, Baci owners and staff!

I've lived in Healdsburg for years and this was my first visit to Baci. The hostess and staff were incredibly friendly and professional. Ordered off the daily "specials" menu and enjoyed every single bite. The flavors were mouthwatering and all dishes perfectly composed. The noise level was pretty loud most of the evening (it was a Thursday and the house was not full) making conversation across the table difficult. Still, we enjoyed the meal and even stayed for coffee and dessert. We will definitely be back... perhaps for an early dinner when we'd stand a chance of being a bit quieter.

First time at this restaurant. Have dined at other Italian restaurants in the area but this one is the best. Prices are reasonable for the area. I had the mushroom risotto and it was one of the best risottos I've ever had. The chef/owner came by our table and chatted with us for a few minutes - he made us feel as if we were in his home. We come up to Sonoma from Central California 2-3 times a year and will definitely come back to eat here again.
