 (San Francisco)·Dined on September 10, 2017

The owner-chef is so caring of his customers, and so friendly, and the food is delicious. I have an allergy to the onion family--Chef made a special meal just for me that was delicious and onion-free. The server made sure that my allergy was communicated to Chef, and came back a couple of times to be sure of what I wanted for my meal. Our friends who joined us enjoyed every bite of their meals as well.
They source local seasonal ingredients, and use them creatively. The wine list offers some good choices to pair with the meal, reasonably priced. The vibe is friendly, with neighbors and friends welcomed by the hostess, who is Chef's wife. It's a nicely decorated space, with tables spaced so you don't feel crowded, but it gets loud when it's full of people, as it usually is.
We like to bring friends here as we know it will be consistently a good experience.

This is a very special place. Chef Shari and his wife Lizbeth make you feel genuinely welcome as soon as you walk in the door. The staff are all professional and make you feel that you're their most important customer.

The food is spectacular and the menu has something for everyone. I assure you...you will love this whole dining experience. You'll need to book your table early.

While visiting Healdsburg for our recent vacation, we tried all of the top restaurants in town during our stay. Baci is definitely at the top of our list. Not pretentious, immaculately clean, not stuffy, servers personable not rude, and absolutely delicious food made this a fantastic choice for dining. Lobster Agnolotti with a lobster cream sauce was spectacular as well as tiramisu, our traditional favorite, were both at the top of our list!

 (Portland)·Dined on August 29, 2017

This was the WORST meal I have had in a long time. It was edible but when you pay $200 for a meal you expect a bit more from it. We had had lovely food our entire time in Healdsburg, until here. This place was recommended to us, and we were shocked. We had a risotto, a dungeness crab dish, and shrimp scampi for our main meals. We also had a beet salad. The beet salad was decent but something I could have gotten anywhere. As for everything else, it was bland and tasteless. There has been better from frozen dinner. This was incredibly disappointing. The crab was *COVERED* in mozzerella. We knew it would have some, but there was so much cheese there was no point in putting crab in the dish. The vegetables were plain and bland. My aunt tried to force her way through the risotto but couldn't finish. We were so excited to have a really nice dinner and it was just a let down.

We had an amazing experience here! We opted to do the tasting menu, and the chef came out to talk to us about our preferences to make sure every course would be to our liking. Each course seemed to be better than the last, and we left the restaurants feeling stuffed and delighted with the meal we had just had. Would definitely recommend!

We brought foodie friends from southern California to dinner at Baci and the restaurant did not disappoint. As always, fabulous food, perfectly prepared, lots of choices, friendly service, always welcoming. The chef/owner always comes around and chats with the guests. It's delightful and it's our "go to" restaurant when the two of us are looking for dinner out.

Baci has consistently great menu items, and a wide selection. the lobster ravioli's are a favorite of mine, but the vegetarian risotto was great too. A bit loud for good conservation, but the food makes up for it. welcoming, friendly and competent staff.

We had the chefs choice menu and it was wonderful. Chef asked us what we were in the mood for and served us accordingly. We had the roasted corn appetizer, Caesar salad and short rib raviolis--followed by veal marsala and poached halibut over saffron risotto... a meal to remember! Plus, no corkage charged for the Sonoma wine we brought in.
Will return again and again.

Had a great meal here while on vacation. Both my husband and I enjoyed the food immensely. He had a prawn and scallop pasta and I had a dish that was called Il Forno, but was basically a crab and leek lasagna with lobster sauce. Atmosphere was great and had a great wine recommendation by the waiter.
