Boutique Italian Bistro

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... read 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.

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

I used to really enjoy this place. I recently had a friend in from out of town. We had lunch here. Disaster! Service was fine, but my favorite salad was unrecognizable. Not sure how you make a salad soupy, but it was. My friends salad was drab and sparse. I mentioned to the waitress my disappointment and she reduced the... More

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
