Lunch yesterday: very good quality food, clean, nice ambience, but only 2 waitstaff, meals took almost a half-hour to arrive. Even at lunch time, noise was overwhelming, with music, even! Asked to turn it down, waitress forgot...fortunately crowd thinned out & we could converse in normal tones. If we go again, it'll be 'way before 12; or after 2:.

OMG.....One of the girls ordered the Ceasar salad which enough for all six of us and then some. The dressing was divine, although it was a tad too much for my taste, hence the missing star. We were never without bread and the waiter was attentive, but not overly so. After explaining my entree needs, I let the waiter choose... More

We definitely have to go back to this restaurant. But......my butternut squash ravioli was not good and normally I go straight to that when I am in an Italian restaurant. It tasted somewhat hard and dry, like it could have been frozen or it was old plus they did not serve it with enough sauce. Next time I will order... More

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

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
