Wonderful experience, definitely a must try restaurant in San Diego! Had the burrata, octopus, seafood pasta, and veal ravioli. Incredible!
Excellent ambience for a romantic dinner or a special occasion. The service is superb: friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. The food is delicious, particularly the Swordfish Oreganato, which is the signature dish.
The best service
Great service and ambiance, the food was amazing! Service was also outstanding! I would highly recommend this place. My new favorite Italian restaurant in San Diego!!!
Really nice restaurant!! I had the Shrimp Scampi and loved it. First fine dinning in 6-months and it was wonderful.
The food was wonderful and the service impeccable. Highly recommended.
Another wonderful dinner at Baci !
Food was excellent. Service was perfect.
So wonderful to return to this amazing place after being shut in for so long. Quality, service, and delicious food did not suffer.
Your food is the best ever, as always. My husband always chooses it for his birthday.
Amazing old school Italian restaurant.
Way overbooked with large loud groups placed right next to us, a party of two celebrating an anniversary. Service was very slow and inattentive as they were clearly overwhelmed. My entree came to the table with blazing hot fish and cold potatoes, really a disappointment. We could barely hear each other over the loud parties nearby. We were thinking of having dessert but the service was so slow and in this unpleasant atmosphere that we didn’t even wait. I’ve brought clients and family here in the past with excellent experiences but now I don’t feel I can trust returning.
Fantastic food and the service is impeccable! We eat here frequently and are never disappointed. Everything on the menu is amazing!!
While we waiting for our parents to arrive, we stopped at the bar and was welcomed by Mario who makes the best martinis! He had my sister’s martini started as she walked through the door.
Phillip never disappoints and always makes us feel like family. Our mom is in a motorized wheelchair and they went above and beyond to ensure she was accommodated including directing my parents van driver into a parking spot outside while we finished our dinner! Even through their masks, you can see how warm and welcoming their smiles are!
Tony, Maria, Phillip and Mario, thank you again for another special evening!!
We had a fantastic meal once again at Baci. So glad that indoor dining is back in San Diego
Great meal and service here, always.
Though I am not a local, I come to town often for business and this is definite "go-to" spot for me.
Wait staff is the best and knowledgeable too !
The owner & 1 of his sons are always there and a amazing people!
I feel like family (a very liked cousin) when I and there, just like in Italy!
Chef is an artist, always a great meal...
Always special to dine at Baci, gold stars!
The food was excellent with good portion sizes. The calamari is great—very light and airy fry technique. Salmon was perfectly cooked, tiramisu and cannoli both fabulous. It’s pricey, but excellent.
We loved the experience! Friendly staff and tasty food.
Overall such a great experience! The staff, food, environment was great! Would come back again
Baci never disappoints. Excellent food and service. I love the procuitto and melon appetizer
Excellent service, food friendly, professional family run classic restaurant
Always excellent. Our favorite in San Diego, but I MUST work on ordering something different next time. I ALWAYS order Veal Picatta, because its the best ever, but I really need to break down and try something different Oh well, big time problems. Antonio is the best!
Baci’s consistently shows what taking special care with the quality of the food, wines and service is all about. Exceptional dining experience.
Noise level was moderate due to a large party; they were having a lively conversation and a great time. Excellent service, food and they're always consistent. We love this restaurant.
Always incredible, amazing food and ambiance, Best Italian in San Diego!
Baci is exceptionally good. The home made burrata is decadent.The freshly made pappardelle with lamb ragú and black truffles is out of bounds. There simply is no better anywhere. And the swordfish origanatto is the most moist and tasty lightly breaded baked swordfish you will ever have. All this washed down with a Monti Bussia 2000 Barolo. The service is impeccable and knowledgeable and the place has an old world charm. A can’t miss fine dining restaurant in San Diego. I give it. 5 out o 5. In one word.....Superb!
Amazing service and amazing food with a beautiful and romantic ambiance! I LOVE this place and will definitely be back.
Musty smell is challenging. Not for the feint of wallet. Specials are $50. Delicious!
Amazing food and service
It has consistently perfect every time we come. Excellence in service, taste, presentation and atmoshere
Not only is the food fabulous the service is outstanding.
Some of the best food we have ever had, an amazing experience. Will definitely be going back again. So many friendly faces and the restaurant is beautiful.
Great place. Amazing food and extraordinary service. Will come back soon.
My wife and I have been going to Baci for the last 20 years. This is hands down the best Italian restaurant in San Diego. Tony and his staff are always top notch. We are looking forward to our next night out there.
A San Diego gem; incredible food and spectacular service. So glad they are open again.
Incredible, old Italian classy place, amazing ambiance and delicious food
Beautiful place, comfortable for intimate conversations, welcoming and professional staff and the food is fresh and delicious. It is our go to place. Such a neighborhood gem!
We had to leave so got the rest of our food to go. How do you box guests food to go food but leave what they left on the plate out the box!? Ordered the veal bone marrow special and they didn’t even include the bone marrow that I hardly touched. Then my lady ordered chicken with asparagus with potato so they only included the left over chicken in the box. Not the uneaten potato and the rest of asparagus. Baffled.
