had 7:00 reservation waited over 30 minutes. Waited an hour for the food. Terrible waiter. Ask if we could substitute something else for potatoes and were firmly told restaurant does not allow any substitutions. Meals came sans potatoes. Waiter said he would bring some, never returned. Food was OK not great. Many better Italian restaurants in bay area. Waiter was... More

Since we only get here once a year, I can't pass up on the burrata. Never a disappointment. So creamy, and combined with the red puree of tomato and green puree of basil (I believe) and sitting atop baguette slices, it is to die for! The pasta del giorno was a short rib ravioli. Pure deliciousness! My favorite in Healdsburg.

Can't say enough about our experience at Baci! When I called to make reservations, I talked w/ Lisbeth, the owner. She reserved their private wine room for our dinner party of 12 but due to "life" our group ended up only at 6. Lisbeth was very accommodating and kept our reservation in the private room as long as a larger... More

My husband had the lamb shank and I don't even like lamb but thought it was maybe one of the best things I ever ate. Very warm environment and excellent food. We ended up eating somewhere else another night and wish we had just gone back to Baci.

We made reservations a few months ahead of time and it was a good thing we did. Our trip to Healdsburg was October, 2014. I have wanted to eat here a few years, but we were hung up on the little sister Scopa. From the moment we entered, the waitstaff called our name, which was surprising and led us to... More

I think the key to ordering here is stick to Italian as that's what they do best. My husband had flank steak and he wished he had ordered something else. It was okay just not what he was expecting. I had pizza and it was delicious. Our waiter was wonderful and although busy made sure we had everything we needed.... More

This was a bit of a conundrum, it is recommended but just doesn't quite deliver. It is very popular and full the night we ate there, book in advance, I had tagliatelle alla carbonara; a small portion and slightly too dry but still tasty; my partner had Pollo alla Livornese; great polenta but the chicken looked as though it had...

Baci offered great food and wine. A little noisy, but everyone around us was enjoying their food and conversation.

On recent visit to Sonoma county, spent our last evening at Baci Cafe. Delicious! After my sister-in-law asked about the preparation of a particular appetizer, Chef Shari came table side and explained, in great detail, the preparation of the course in question. He further assured her if the item was not to her liking, she would not be charged. Once... More
