Baci Ristorante offers diners a hint of old world Italian charm, with plush booths, white tablecloths, and gracious servers clad in tuxedos. While the decor is subtly modern, the menu is classic, celebrating Northern and Southern Italian cuisine. Specialties include classic pasta dishes, veal, and fresh seafood, with especially tempting daily specials offered by Executive Chef Domenico Alioto. In addition to the cuisine, the restaurant's charming and welcoming features--include an extensive wine list, elegant patio setting, and romantic main dining room--have made Baci a consistent favorite among locals for over 30 years.

    Baci Restaurant came highly recommended by our waiter at Crown Bistro (in Coronado). This is a 40-year family-owned restaurant and it was everything we hoped it would be. From the hostess/owner, Maria, to the impeccable service by our waiter, Adam, to the wonderful menu selections...everything was top notch. Even the valet service was perfect. Just what you would expect from a restaurant that has been in business for 40 years! We will definitely be returning.

    I went here for my birthday and I was absolutely blown away by everything. The ambiance and decor make you feel like you’re in Italy, with Italian music and chandeliers inside. The appetizer came out quickly and was divine (I highly recommend the prosciutto and melon!). I had one of the specials, the ravioli in cream sauce, paired with a white wine recommended from my server. This was one of the best ravioli dishes I’ve ever had in my life! This is now my new favorite Italian restaurant. It’s fantastic! I highly recommend going here if you want to go to a place that has a traditional old school Italian feel. THANK YOU!! :)

    Baci's never disappoints -- great service, scrumptious food, and a wonderful ambiance/atmosphere. We had birthdays to celebrate lats night -- and there was no other place to even consider except Baci's. The mix of traditional and modern really makes for a wonderful evening.

    Food was outstanding. There were four of us and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Service was also excellent. Only complaint was the noise level; we have always thought of this restaurant as being a place for quiet enjoyment of a meal. Last night (a Friday) it was louder than I remember, although perhaps due an especially boisterous table next to us.

    Dinner for ten on the Saturday before NYE. For a couple of folks it was their first visit, but, the rest had been to Baci a few times. Everyone’s meal was done perfectly. Our server, Giovani was attentive without being obsequious. Glad this restaurant is within walking distance from home.

    We dine out almost every night in San Diego, and Baci is our absolute favorite. Wonderful little classic bar. Top quality Italian fish, meat, and pasta dishes. But the unique thing is the service and hospitality, from the professional, respectful but not contrived service seemingly from out of the past to the elegant dinner music designed for enjoyable dining. It doesn't matter how old or young you are, go to Baci to experience what dining out still can be.

    We had a fantastic meal. The staff are very friendly and attentive. For appetizer we had mushrooms and free garlic bread. Very tasty Portobello mushrooms with rosemary and bacon. The garlic bread reminds of English muffins but with a crispy crust. The salad was full of flavorful items. Very tasty. My husband had swordfish and I had had filet mignon. Both were were done to perfection. And the final touch was my husband's birthday cake which was tiramisu cake. Perfection! What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday.
