Patio sitting is great!

The patio sitting is great! Good food and good price. We had a glass of wine and appetizers. A great choice specially if you are looking for something a little late at night. Great service!

We love Baci Bistro. It's a Kailua institution. You can feel like you've been transported to Italy. Lunch here is great and a good price. Dinner is excellent. Make a reservation if can as it does get busy. A small restaurant with big flavor.

I have eaten at Baci Bistro over the years with mixed results. On this visit I was pleased with our luncheon. What I liked: - We had a gregarious waitress who made the luncheon enjoyable. - We shared a salad and there was plenty for both of us. - Both entrees were great. I had the chicken marsala and it...

Great atmosphere and very good food. The calamari appetizer is the tenderest calamari I have ever had anywhere - highly recommended. My veal was tender and well prepared. The wine list is sufficient amd had some very good, reasonably priced selections.. Highly recommended. Make reservations.

Not sure I would agree that this is the best Italian food in Kailua. Personally, I liked Kalapawai Cafe & Deli better. But we wanted to try a different restaurant so we came here for our final evening in Kailua. First, we had a 8 pm reservation but had to wait nearly 20 minutes to get seated. Once we were... More

Service was good. Wine was good. My date said he would give it a 4. He said to get the Pall diobbino (spelling?) cabernet, not the da vinci. I had the Opa - which was the fish of the day and a very expensive dish. It was overcooked and not seasoned well at all. All our local friends had recommended... More

This restaurant has been around for a long time in Kailua. While other restaurants have come and gone, Baci has remined a staple for locals who live in the area. We just recently went to celebrate my mom's birthday and had a reservation for 10. We took up half of the indoor seating, the restaurant is not big. There is... More
