Charming place.

Easy access and friendly staff. The food is fresh and tasty. Ate at the bar with a friend and enjoyed the ambiance and wine selection. My salad was fresh and tasty....not something one can say about every salad.

Excellent food & drinks. Good service. Not many options for vegetarians, but what's there is very good. Can be pretty loud for intimate conversation. Eating at the bar is a treat--bartenders are friendly & efficient--and we always meet interesting people there.

We found ourselves in downtown pleasanton looking for a place to have lunch. The Baci Bistro has outside seating so we decided to eat there. We both ordered a sandwich.....and wow! A delicious sandwich that we could only eat half! It came with a delicious salad....I had french fries. Also a reasonable wine by the glass selection. I want to... More

Had a late lunch here. Food was good but thought it a bit expensive for lunch. Service was not the best, I'm sad to say. We had quite long stretches beginning with taking our order, getting our food and our check. We asked three different employees to see the dessert menu before we got it. Seemed a little hard for...

Food is excellent. Their water is wonderfully infused with fresh fruit or veggies or both and always cooly refreshing. Have never had a disappointing meal. Service is prompt and pleasant. Seatings available outside by the sidewalks as well with heaters for cold days/nites.

Delicious dinner. It is a little bit cramped space wise in the dining room but the food and service is wonderful.

We've been in for lunch, dinner, and just for drinks in the evening. Always good food and cozy elegant atmosphere. Can be loud on the weekends in the evening - or quiet and intimate.

Try their beet salad or any other salad. Really like eating lunch here, but dinner is nice too. Small menu but they do all of them right. Nice to find a restaurant that focuses on a few good dishes. good for couples or small business lunch. Get's a bit loud inside but managable.

My favorite eatery in town. Great date place indoors or out. Love the heaters and blanket outside. I love the bistro feel, with the quaint nearby shops,and passerby's. The evening atmosphere is romantic, and the best wedge ceasar salad around.My choice and recommendation is the Paella. Smokin hot.🔥So yum.Want to impress? You can't lose here. 🍷🍸🍴🍝

Food is very good. The customer service is excellent. Our favorite bartender works there and always makes it fun to sit at the bar and have appetizers or a full meal. They have indoor and outdoor dining.
