The food here is fabulous. I ordered Osso Bucco and it was the best I've ever had. My wife had veal piccata and it was also excellent. Even my salad was delicious. The wine selection is extensive with a lot of local wines; being in the middle of Sonoma, that means they're good.
But the noise. The room is very live and it's full of customers. The noise is very loud and constant. I could not even discuss the food with my wife because we don't like to shout at each other. It's the one downside to an otherwise delightful experience.

The food is excellent. Our server, Barbara, was outstanding. She was very helpful in her recommendations. I suppose the only negative we had was the noise level and I don’t know that they can improve on that. It’s a small place with a lot of tables, very close to each other and you really can’t carry on a conversation, at lease where we were seated. But I would definitely go here again, even with the high noise level.

Here's why so many of us love Baci...
- There aren't 10 entree's on the menu there are 30 and they are wonderful.
- Customer with food aversions or allergies have at least 10 entrees and this is within the 30 wonderful above
-Service is casual and friendly and professional...you feel good about the experience
This is a husband and wife restaurant...Shari is the chef and Lisbeth manages the room they are good people and they, and the restaurant, are an important part of Heldsburg.

We went for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and were treated very nicely from the moment we walked in until we left. Our waitress was wonderful and they treated us to a lovely dessert with candles.

The food was delicious and overall we enjoyed our time thoroughly.

I write about Baci often because I dine there often, and tonight was another fine meal. Burrata with figs, melon, baby arugula made the most of fresh produce. A simple dish of spaghetti with a rich meat sauce was satisfying, and I ended with blackberry Cabernet sorbetto which left a fresh taste in my mouth. The most recent addition to the serving staff, Barbara, is going to be yet another highly professional and lovely server.

Large menu with many fish choices. Appetizers and desserts were most successful Good but not the best and very pricey. Too many other great choices in Healdsburg. Will choose another next time.

Great Italian food and excellent, attentive service. We appreciated the food and wine pairing recommendations. The place was busy & noisy --but that is how an Italian restaurant should be!! --and we could still carry on a conversation. The restaurant is full on old school Healdsburg and made us really appreciate this community! We had a great time.

Came here for a special birthday dinner and mentioned we were celebrating a birthday, I was rather disappointed that no one mentioned the celebration :( Why ask if you're celebrating something and then not acknowledge it? We started with the beet salad that was very good, fresh with just the right amount of dressing. The special, Al Forno, was great, a little surprised when cannelloni came out though, recipe said "pasta filled", should have just said cannelloni! The spaghetti bolognese was wonderful, as well. Pasta was cooked perfect, al dente, the sauce was rich and hearty. The level of noise was quite loud, definitely not a place to go if you're looking for a quiet romantic night out. It was really crowded but we never felt rushed, our evening fell short of just three hours. All in all, a great evening but 4 stars instead of 5 for not remembering the birthday.

Delicious food and wonderful wine! Service was very prompt and pleasant. Only reason some categories were 4 stars because noise level extremely high so difficult to hear each other until tables had cleared out.

We always come to Baci when in the Sonoma County area but this time we actually went twice in three days. We went on Thursday evening and had our usual favorites (chicken parm with bucatini for me and eggplant parm for my wife). We saw the chef's tasting dinner option and decided to go back on Saturday. Chef Chari did not disappoint! We had course after course of fantastic food including gnocchi bolognese, risotto with mushrooms and veal marsala to name a few. We got to spend a little time with the chef and were treated like family. There are lots of great restaurants in this area but Baci is special! P.S. - Lisbeth is wonderful too. She greets you at the door with a welcoming smile and makes you feel right at home.

We love going to Baci because the food is always outstanding and the service is friendly and efficient. Lizbeth greets us on a first name basis and keeps a sharp eye on the front of the restaurant. Shari comes out of the kitchen and greets the guests while maintaining an eye out for the kitchen. Baci never disappoints!
