Excellent. Really fresh pasta and a wine list that actually features European wines in California wine country. Many quality ones from Italy at good prices. Had an Umberto Barolo for about $70.


Had the Pappardelle and the wife had the veal stuffed ravioli. Spilt the Burrata for appetizer.

We have been going to the Baci for a number of years. Chef Shari is outstanding and the staff are all well trained and also outstanding. Diners are given a warm welcome by Lisbeth, the chef's wife and made to feel right at home. The food is always consistent so if you happen to order the same dish on a number of different occasions, the same outstanding quality is duplicated again and again. The menu changes for holidays and seasons so there is always a variety of new and different dishes to try. The desserts are superb and also consistent in their quality and presentation. The Baci is a wonderful place to relax and dine in a casual yet impeccable atmosphere. Just one glance at the wine glasses on the table tell you everything you need to know about the meticulous care and attention to detail that reflect Shari's and Lisbeth's fine-dining philosophy.

Being a Healdsburg Resident for over 30 years, I have seen a lot of restaurants come and go, but Baci remains year after year because the do EVERYTHING right! From the moment Lizbeth greets you at the door, you feel an immediate part of the family. I have NEVER been disappointed with my meal here, whether I am dining alone at the bar, or at a table with friends, the food is always fresh with locally produced produce, meats, and seafood. The menu is extensive and Chef Shari never hesitates to turn a regular menu item into gluten-free for special needs. This is always my go-to when celebrating a special occasion because I know my friends will love their meal and love the warmth and kindness always provided by the Owners and Staff.

For a group of ten all wishing to have a nice Sunday dinner after a day in the park and a concert, the hostess did a wonderful job of being prompt but not overbearing. And seeing some of the top artists from the week's HEALDSBURG JAZZ FESTIVAL at the next large table near us made the ambience even more special. For what it is worth, our folks (six different subsets of people) seemed genuinely pleased with the food they choose!

Great food. The veal dishes are special. Our server was not the best. She got our order mixed up with an adjacent table. We told her it was our anniversary. No acknowledgement at all. We didn’t expect much but how about saying Happy Anniversary? There were several very loud patrons near us. I believe excess wine was to blame. They should dine at Applebee’s.

This is my absolute favorite restaurant in Healdsburg. The service is fantastic and the food is fabulous. I am Celiac and they accommodate me very well. Their non gluten free food is amazing too. Excellent place for any occasion. It does tend to be a little loud sometimes; it’s almost always a full house. The couple that own this place are welcoming and charming. It feels like home!

Excellent Italian food - as usual! I’m a local and this is my all-time favorite restaurant in Healdsburg. You got to try the braised short ribs with polenta. It’s unbelievable! Never disappointed when I leave here. The staff is also wonderful. Super friendly and very helpful. Can’t wait to go back!

Fantastic service, great wine selection, excellent and flavorful food from fresh, local ingredients. They were fairly accommodating of my girlfriend's vegetarian/gluten-free needs. Only issue was the loud noise level, but that's the lamentable problem with just about every restaurant nowadays -- definitely not a place for intimate conversations or if you need to hear yourself think.

Baci is one of the only restaurants we go to multiple times a month. The food quality is consistent and the menu has such a wide variety of choices that we never get bored. The seafood dishes are my husbands favorites and they are always very fresh, and have such bold flavors. The salads are crisp and dressings are homemade. The staff always greets you with a smile and is very attentive. I appreciate that no matter who your waiter/waitress is, they work as a team and EVERYONE is always available for anything you may need.
Baci is definitely our favorite restaurant!!

Owners Elizabeth (front of house) and husband Shari (chef) are welcoming and run a most efficient restaurant. Menu is huge, come hungry. Shari will customize a dish if necessary - he
is most creative, and he visits tables to ensure all is well. It is hard to choose what to eat. Delicious, beautiful presentation. Staff is outstanding - most have been there for years. Oh, and the wine list...you are in wine country - great choices and glassware to match. Our go to restaurant every trip to Sonoma. Make reservations! It is a locals favorite also.
