Hands down, Baci serves the best Italian food in Hawai'i. Where to start? Well, with the first courses, I guess. Chef Reza's house-made soups are beyond compare -- silky smooth, deliciously seasoned, never too salty. Salads are fresh and made to order with locally-sourced ingredients, with perfect house-made dressings (the tri-color tomato salad is especially wonderful when it's available). Appetizers... More

Baci Bistro is fabulous. We started with a delicious heirloom tomato salad, and then entrees of Osso Buco and Butternut squash ravioli. The Osso Buco was succulent and delightful. The butternut squash ravioli was to die for - this was one of their ravioli du jour - so flavors change daily. I am wondering if each night's ravioli is this... More

We just got back from dinner at Baci Bistro and had to write a review. Not only was the food and service excellent but the cost was reasonable too! There were 3 adults dining, we each had a salad or soup, main entree, dessert, 2 iced teas, 1 glass of wine and 2 coffees - all for $138.00! To begin... More

Baci is always good. Pleasant environment. Fresh salads and fish. Homemade pasta and soups. The wine list is affordable too. Great service.

We ate there twice. Nice atmosphere, good service, tasty food. Did I mention it's close to Bellows AFS? No pictures of Obama on the walls. If you want pictures of Obama go to Buzz's

A little off the main drag, we found this a nice place for lunch. The place was pretty busy but surprisingly we had the patio to ourselves, which was very pleasant! The bruschetta was enjoyable although different: icy diced tomatoes with fresh basil & garlic on toasted sliced baguette with olive oil. My chicken Caesars salad was icy hearts of... More

A true bistro tucked away in Kailua with a wine list that provided numerous good options either by bottle or glass. As it was Valentines Day, didn't have high expectations for food or service, yet both were good even though it was very busy! House salad deliciously crisp and fresh. Per waitron's suggestion had braised short ribs so tender they... More

I'd like to start off by explaining why I gave Baci Bistro a 4 opposed to a 5. The only reason is because the portions were small. I'm 110 lbs and don't eat much and the plate didn't fill me up, let alone my husband. HOWEVER, it was DELICIOUS! We ordered the lobster ravioli…..it's a must try! We plan to... More

I had some business out in Hawaii and stayed with friends who live in Kailua. They took me here for dinner my first night. They dine there at least once a week and told me that while this place didn't look like much, the food was delicious. I had the special that evening which was butternut squash ravioli. I didn't...
