First visit to Baci, but I will return. Excellent food, affordable price, friendly staff. I ate at the bar and Jason did a great job making sure that my meal was both great tasting and promptly served, including the side of crusty bread slices with olive oil. I had pasta, but another diner next to me had a steak which... More

Wonderful and delicious food!!!...5 star taste at 4 star prices. Friendly service but alas inconsistent. 4 course dinner ( even though we didn't know we were getting it ) was a pleasant surprise. Each course was brought out at a painfully slow pace. 4 people in our party, 2 received theirs approximately 20 minutes before the others. We had allowed... More

Do not pass this place up. Reminded me of many fantastic restaurants in Europe where the emphasis is on quality and hospitality rather than decor. Great food and service.

I was seated and asked what the special was. The woman looked at me and asked for what? I asked for the menu special and was told that it was tuna she thought. My waitress then came with the menu which is paper and was crinkled. I asked her and she said "we usually don't have specials just the perch".... More

Thank you for taking valuable time to rate, review, and share your recent dining experience with us. We're pleased that the staff ended up being helpful and attentive to your needs--however, you're right--we need to either take the "specials line" out of the menu or make sure that our staff is properly trained to answer that question knowledgeably and without...

This place could be great, as it is, it's "ok". Interior very dark, reminded me of a 70's/80's disco club with low lighting and neon lights for accents. We were there on Sweetest Day (coincidence as we were actually celebrating a birthday) & barely any tables in. Maybe 5 total by the time we left at 8 o'clock. Service was... More

Baci's is the only night club and restaurant in Sandusky, Ohio that lets you feel as though you were in the big city, without the hassle of driving, parking, waiting. The staff is friendly, professional, and attentive. Even the owner, Carl, makes an appearance to check on his guests. Very nice atmosphere, too.

After a long, exhausting and rather frustrating day our hotel manager (not this hotel) suggested we try Baci Restaurant. When we first walked in there were a few rowdy patrons at the bar and all I could think was "is this really what he was talking about?". That all changed once we were seated. Our server Josh Koebel, was great.... More
