Will go back for crab cakes !

Great food. I first tried this place in November and went back last week. Food is always consistently good. Crab cakes were excellent. Linguini was good with good amount of clams. Friendly staff. Nice casual place to hang out for lunch.

What a disappointment! My husband and I came here for his birthday but were very disappointed. The wait staff were just not on it, the food was mediocre, and the service was so slow. It's rare for me to leave a place without first having dessert, but not here. If you are attending an 8:00 pm show, then you better... More

Located in Pleasanton down town. Very nice for a good Italian dinner. Make a reservation with time because is very busy. The prices are in high/medium rate you could expend from 30 to 70 USD (tip included) per person depends in what you order. Every dollar expended there is worth it. The raviole with lobster and jumbo shrimps are awesome.... More

Arrived just as they opened for lunch and all went well until we realized we were seated next to long table set up for a birthday lunch. When this group arrived, the restaurant became unnecessarily loud, to our detriment.

The servers were efficient and friendly. Food was good, not great and seems overpriced for what you get.

Baci's my favorite place on Main Street. I live less than 10 minutes away, and it's my go-to place for family, visiting friends, or date-night with the girlfriend. The wine list is excellent, as is the food...the appetizer pizzetas and salads (Strawberry & Spinach or Field of Berries are my faves) are great starters, and the pastas, meats, and seafood... More

The ambience is really nice, cute small place. The food can be hit or miss, but usually good. When I was there last, the bartender was also our waiter, so it took a long time to get a drink. They have a early bird dinner.

This boutique Italian bistro in Old Pleasanton is a real treat. First, the location on Main Street in Old Pleasanton is very quaint and Baci fits right into the scene. Second, the service is very attentive and helpful without being overbearing. Third, the wine list, while limited, has some terrific offerings and should be explored. Last and not least, the... More

As with most of Pleasanton there is seating inside and outside. I sat inside for the AC. I love it that they have fresh mint/fruit in the drinking water (see picture). Full bar. I asked for meatballs marinara for an appetizer (not on the menu), not a problem. Ordered a favorite-cioppino (prawns, mussels, clams, crab, calamari and cod in a... More
