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.

This establishment was stupendous! She was definitely satisfied and I was astonished by the service, cuisine assortment, and the layout. Vibrant atmosphere & quietly set for our date night. Will revisit when She says "Let's go".

In my opinion wine pricing is excessively, which obviously is their option, parking was provided in unlocked alley lots, and not where I would or did leave my car. Oh well.

Baci is a little pricey but it is worth it. The food was excellent and the wait staff brings back the manners and treatment of old school dining: professional, polite, and knowledgeable and dressed up. This atmosphere is romantic and it's not too loud. Perfect.

Baci is an old standby. Cocktails came quickly and as ordered. Fantastic service throughout the meal. Excellent appetizers. For main course wife had branzino special, very good and I had Oso Buco, also as a special, a bit chewy, but tasty. Better than very good, not quite excellent.
Best for that special occasion.

Wonderful food, atmosphere and service! We were all happy with our menu choices. I had the chef’s special swordfish dish which was excellent- very moist with a light flavor. I will definitely order it next time!!!

All the people who work here are so nice and attentive . The food was outstanding and I got a free tiramisu for my birthday which was nice. My mom and dad were very pleased with everything which was a relief as they have such high expectations. My martini was perfect, best I ever had and I can’t wait to dine here again! 😍

The service was excellent. Very attentive without hoverin. Appetizers, salads and entrees were great. The scallop special was the best scallops I have ever experienced. Highly recommend BACI for dining which I have already done.

Waiters in tuxedos, cozy booths, and an intimate lounge (I refuse to call it a "bar") add up to a relaxing evening with friends. It was a busy Saturday night but Tony (the long-time owner) was directing the staff with a keen eye. The specials were varied, numerous and creative. Chef was pulling out all the stops tonight!
We shared a burrata and then gnocchi, both of which were amazing. These were followed by our entrees. Pacing was excellent, with generous refills of their signature home baked garlic bread between courses. The eagle-eyed busers, in crisp white shirts and black vests, refreshed our silverware, water and removed plates without being intrusive.
I hope you enjoy Bach's as much as we do.
