Amazing Burrata Appetizer!

A group of us dined outside and were pleasantly surprised by the outstanding food. Standouts included the special burrata salad, mushroom risotto, and black truffle stuffed gnocchi!

Of fine dining restaurants this one is not. Service great. Atmosphere great. We were seated outside and could barely read the menu with the light. We both ordered veal dishes. Tough and not worth the money. Worst veal we have had. The pasta dishes at other tables didn't impress us either. If it weren't for the excellent service and the... More

We have been regulars at Baci for 20+ years. It is one of 3 authentic Italians on the island (there used to be a 4th, which has unfortunately vanished). The food is excellent, not trendy, service also excellent. If there is any negative at all it is the crowd it is now attracting as Italian seems to have become the... More

Reserved a table for 2 and we were placed outside even though I had asked for inside via Open Table so it's always good to reconfirm. Carpaccio and prosciutto e melons were ok not great, veal saltimbocca and veal with mushrooms very good and steamed veggies awesome. Profiteroles were tough. Not as good as previously.

Our family went to Baci after the recommendation of our son. Two of us had the Del Compo. The meal was OK but lots of left over grease from cooking the sausage and veal was on my plate. I would NOT recommend this dish since I suffered some gastro issues later that evening. Others enjoyed their Risotto, and Bucatinii Cozze.... More

We dropped in without reservations when they just opened for dinner and were lucky enough to get a spot on the patio. We will make reservations ahead for our next visit. It was surrounded by beautiful plants and flowers and a little more casual then the inside dining. Our server, Gabe, was great...there when you want something but not hovering.... More

He has been trained in Italy. The food is not only fantastic but the service is wonderful and the costs are half of Assagios which is weird because Baci's food is higher quality!

Five of us went there for dinner on a Tuesday night. It was very busy but we had reservations and were served quickly. We had 2 pupu dishes, 5 different entrees, 5 drinks and 5 different deserts. All the selections were delicious and the service was very good. The total bill was about $200 which is very reasonable for all... More

We stopped in for lunch while in Kailua. We were able to sit outdoors, and had a wonderful meal. Really good Italian fare, some local seafood specials. Gelato ! Nice wine list, good wine values. Our server was very warm and friendly, did a great job.

I've lived in Kailua for 35 years and I've seen a lot of new restaurants come into town. My longtime favorite "go to" restaurant, though, is Baci Bistro. The food is great (I would go there just for the caesar salad with its house made dressing - which is better than any I've had anywhere else. The entrees are reliably... More
