We had a pizza for an appetizer, it was delicious! Then I ordered the Baci salad and the French onion soup for my main course. Both were very well prepared and the portions were ample. The service was exemplary , as you would expect from this type of restaurant. Our server was very attentive and had excellent knowledge of the menu and how each item was prepared. We will definitely be back.

We had an excellent meal at Baci. The pastas were awesome and our grilled asparagus app was perfectly cooked. It was a bit pricey though. A nice place for a special meal.

Took my father there while we were on a wine tasting excursion. He is picky about his food and loved his meal there. Everything tasted as it should, quick service. Also has a very good wine list although we were done with wine by that point.

It was AMAZING!!! We booked this for my moms 60th birthday dinner. They sat us in their private room / wine cellar and that really set the tone. It was so nice to have a private area for our group. The waitstaff - the somm, waitress and assistants were super friendly and attentive. We even spoke to the owner for a bit when she checked on our meal. They even provided us a tiramisu dessert on the house for the birthday girls. The food was amazing. I recommend the short ribs with polenta. Would deff come back and suggest others to go! Great dinner. We all loved it

Baci Cafe and Wine Bar has been our favorite "go-to" since we moved to Healdsburg from San Francisco 5 years ago. Shari makes some of the best pizza in town. We are treated like family and the food and service has always been stellar.

On 1 and 2 April, Shari and Lisbeth celebrated the eighth anniversary of Baci in grand style. In addition to all the warmth their guests receive, a celebratory glass of Roederer champagne was served to each guest, as well as a complimentary dessert. Just another example of their generous spirit. My guest enjoyed a beet salad as I enjoyed the onion soup. As it was Monday night, a special was the lovely prime rib. My guest and I think it was possibly the loveliest slice of beef ever. For myself, I chose the lamb chops. Shari only had them for Easter Sunday and Monday so I lucked out. They were served with risotto Milanese and a sauce that was perfect. It’s not likely I’ll forget the anniversary meal we enjoyed!

We were very pleased with our dining experience at Baci. We were travelling from Canada and booked Baci in advance based on reviews and we are very glad we did. The dining room is lovely, the service perfect and the food was all delicious and well presented. No complaints at all, only praise.

Lots to like here! This is a local gem. The hostess, Lizbeth, is beautiful and engaging. The food is comfortable but elevated and everything actually works! the oven roasted asparagus salad right on. The veal osso bucco simply delicious. The wine list is well selected and reasonable as it should be in this wine mecca

Wonderful dining. Six of us fined in the wine cellar which was very quiet and we could have a very pleasant dining experience. The restaurant proper seemed very noisy!
Service was excellent....good superb! A few of us had the lamb shank with wild mushrooms which was delicious and tender. Served with yummy polenta and an interesting and delicious combination of sautéed veggies, not the usual carrots, zucchini & yellow squash & broccoli which gets very boring. Others in our group had melt in your mouth short ribs, also served with polenta and mixed veggies. The only disappointment was the apple pie ala mode. Rather boring and tasteless. Would recommend this restaurant. Not open on Tues and Wed.

It was suppose to be a birthday celebration for my son and son in law. Our family was visiting the wine country, and we had been told that this was one of the local’s favorites. Healdsburg is our happy place and we wanted to share that with our children and their spouses. I had made the reservation weeks in advance. Upon our arrival we were sat at a table by the door, and it being a rainy, cold night it was less than pleasant. Plus, those waiting for tables spilled into our table area. We literally waited for 15 minutes before being welcomed by our waiter and given the opportunity to order drinks. Less than happy at this moment. No apologies were made. The only saving grace to the entire evening was that the food was absolutely delicious. Sadly, if you are a local you are welcomed and waited on nicely, visitors to the wine country, not so much! We will stick to our other local favs...Barn Diva, Mateo’s, Dry Creek Kitchen, Bravas Bar de Tapas. We wanted to have dessert to celebrate the birthdays, but our adult children and their spouses were DONE. Not a great ending to our trip to this beautiful town!!

We had the most wonderful dinner at Baci tonight!! Service was so professional and the food was amazing!
We shared the Cioppino and it was the best we’ve ever had.
The chef uses saffron in this version and it makes the broth so flavorful and delicious. The seafood was so fresh and the dish is served with hearty slices of garlic bread to soak up the broth....just perfect.
Lizbeth, the owner and host was very welcoming and made us feel like we were enjoying a meal in her home. And the chef and owner, Shari was happily chatting with his guests when he was not creating all these wonderful dishes.
This is our first time at Baci but certainly not our last!
We intend on becoming regulars at this great foodie
restaurant!
Gracie Baci!!

First time to this restaurant while visiting Healdsburg. Great menu both authentic and creative Italian-driven cuisine. Service was top notch. Very lively dinner atmosphere, so it's a bit quieter if you sit below the lowered ceiling area against the wall. Check this place out.

First time of finally eating at Baci! I have been missing out for years! So glad I finally made it in. The food is fantastic. Al Forno was absolutely amazing. Good wine list! Our server was fun, informative. We had an awesome experience. Found ourselves hanging out finishing our wine and talking for quite a while after our meal. Our server also remembered that we were celebrating a birthday and they brought out a Tiramisu with a candle in it!

As always, Lisbeth and Shari presented a wonderfully seasonal menu . A new specialty was a sirloin strip steak with fries and vegetables . Shari explained he chooses specialties based on what he would like to eat. He was thinking of the places in Paris that slice an entrecôte of beef, cook it to order, serve it with fries. That’s the only item they sell and when they run out it’s done. The steak was even better than the story! Paired with a Lambert Bridge Cabernet, it was an ideal meal. Again.
