Baci Cafe & Wine Bar - Healdsburg Ratings and Reviews
This is the best restaurant in Healdsburg, considering food, ambience, friendliness of staff, etc. Nothing pretentious or over-trendy. They've been in the biz many years, and they know how to please their customers. Locals all go there, and those who own wineries, a good sign. Simply the best!
I can't get over the large menu at Baci and the fact that we've never had a bad dish. I always seem to get drawn into the specials, but you can't go wrong with any of the menu items. The wine list is full of great, mostly local wines. The prices are very reasonable.
We were a group of 10 celebrating our daughter’s graduation. The service was impeccable. The food was delicious. The staff helped create the congratulatory ambience of joy and accomplishment we were so proudly trying to show her. We all had a marvelous time.
As usual our evening was just right. We feel like family at Baci and that’s how we’re treated. I always over order so I have leftovers . Caprese salad, capellini in fresh tomato sauce and veal was a wonderful meal. Special pizza for my daughter was just right because it’s cooked in a pizza oven, wood fired. They also put their onion soup in that oven to finish it off. Highly consistent. Baci also offers truly fine wines by the glass, an example is the Selby Sauvignon Blanc. Outstanding service.
Had a pasta dish - tagliatelle ala fruit de mare.
The dish had no taste. The scallops had a funny taste
And as a result I was sick all night with severe stomach
Pains from the meal. My spouse enjoyed his veal but
Found his side order of carbonara to be weak in its
Taste and flavor.
All in all it was not a successful experience.
This is a handsome restaurant with flavorful food priced a bit on the high side. The staff were engaging and accommodating. The noise level really put a dent in the evening for me. My friend and I could hardly hear each other across our small table. We both noted that, besides the acoustics of the restaurant be an issue, a lot diners talk and laugh very loud indeed (especially after a couple snorts). Since it was my friend's birthday, we were treated to a delicious dessert. I would recommend not going to this restaurant at peak hours unless listening to a raucous cacophony voices is your cup of tea.
As usual, the food, service, and welcoming ambiance made our evening most enjoyable. I had friends visiting and we decided on the cioppino which Shari prepares with the freshest of seafood. Portions are large enough to serve two, or to take home some leftovers. Another outstanding meal.
A return visit reminds us we must dine with the Baci family more often.
The food is always great and the service is just about perfect.
This was a Sunday evening, so quieter than the usual situation, especially Friday and Saturday nights. Being hearing impaired I am perhaps overly sensitive to the noise level, so Sundays it is!
My wife ordered her usual--the short ribs with soft polenta--and I had the linguine special of the day which included shellfish and sausage. Both meals were excellent in presentation and flavor. (I am going to order the short ribs next time!)
Our food choices worked well with a bottle of Rafanelli Zin. What a perfect meal!
We are local folk and Baci is our go-to choice for many reasons. This visit , however, proved to be extra special. My daughter and I invited a guest who is vegan. It was easy for my daughter and I to select our food, and our guest needed more information. Our server, Marco, was helpful beyond expectations. He has always been a wonderful server but, on this occasion, he went above and beyond. Marco was able to direct our guest to vegan choices. Marco know every kind of broth a dish was prepared with and was able to make suggestions for substitutes. We all enjoyed our evening and I’m grateful for Marco’s expertise.
They accommodated our group of 11 beautifully in the private dining room. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. I could see and hear all the guests around the table. I wouldn't want to spend this much every night, but for a special night out, it was great.
Excellent and memorable meal with traditional and innovative appetizers, pastas and main courses. Our waiter was truly knowledgeable and attentive, except when he suggested, and we agreed, to a small pause between salads and entress. After that it took some work to get his attention as a large group had just been seated in a private room and his attention was needed there. Once our entrees they were piping hot and wonderful across the board so any issue was forgiven, and it was Saturday night. This is a great place and seems popular with locals as well. We would absolutely return.
Delicious fresh pasta dishes that I am still craving four days later! Hostess and wait staff were incredible. We chose this amazing restaurant to celebrate our 13th anniversary, and it was perfect. Perfect table at the window, perfect wine, perfect starters and perfect entrees. And a surprise anniversary Tirimisu was icing on the cake! Will definitely be back and will recommend to all of our friends!
We celebrated two birthdays in the private dining room, (what a treat) with a party of 8, plus one infant. We brought our own wine which they happily open and poured for us. We had the Gamberetti (delicious, cooked perfect), Prosciutto, (amazingly fresh and delicious), Bruschetta, (was good but not my favorite) as appetizers. Caesar salad, (was good, but nothing special), French onion soup, (was outstanding) for our second course. The short ribs with polenta was a table favorite , the Al Forno , a special on the menu, which is fresh pasta stuffed with local crab, cheese and covered in a Lobster Sauce and more cheese, was the best crab pasta dish I have ever eaten. They brought dessert with a candle on it for our birthday people and we also had the mini gelato cones, which are super cute and fun to eat. Our service was outstanding from start to finish and we had a fabulous celebration and amazing food. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I was in the main dining room a few weeks ago with a large group and the only downfall is the main dining room can be very loud on a busy night. I had the Lobster ravioli's that night and they were delicious. Their fresh pasta is so soft and delicate, it makes the other ingredients in the dish so flavorful.
40th Anniversary made very special at Baci. Food phenomenal. The cioppino was the best I’ve ever had (and I’m well versed in that wonderful dish!) Managed to finish it which apparently most people don’t! Abondanza! If they have the onion soup on menu, just get it. Everything served, by the fantastic Ms Dre, was hot, flavorful and served in very reasonable time. The owners both work the tables and I haven’t felt as pampered at a restaurant in long time, a very long time!
We were in Healdsburg for my birthday . After reading numerous reviews I chose BACI. It was one of the best Italian meals I ever had. I had the delicious Al Fornio stuffed with crab and cheese . Great wine selection and beer per my husband . Ambiance was casual and cheery . I look forward to visiting it again .
Our two daughters had December birthdays (27th & 29th) and both decided they wanted Baci as their bday dinner. We were greated with a friendly smile & were promptly seated. Annie was our server & was very attentive & friendly. We asked for a few modifications on our meals & Annie made it happen. I ordered the veal Marsala but subbed chicken. It was very flavorful & the fresh mushrooms & artichoke hearts were delicious. My husband got the ciopinno which is a seasonal dish & should definitely be tried!!!!! Fresh crab, mussels, clams, & scallops! Yum!! The girls got a crab baked dish on the special menu, chicken parmigian, & pasta with lobster sauce. All of which we shared because it was so good. We finished with gillato cones & they brought out teramisu with 2 candles. So thoughtful & probably the best teramisu we have ever had! All in all it was a perfect evening! Can’t wait to go back.
