Great Mostly Italian Place in Kailua

This is actually one of the best restaurants I've tried on Oahu, and I think 4.5 would be a more accurate score. It's definitely an upscale, but still relaxed, place with excellent food, excellent service, and a great setting. I said "mostly Italian" because it is Italian with great twists on the... read 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

Back Bistro is my favorite place to eat on the island. There service and food is nothing short or perfect and professional. I recommend everything on their menu. It's all amazing. My favorite meal is their chicken Marsala with a slice of the best cheesecake I've ever had in my life for dessert. Baci Bistro recaptures my heart every time... More

We had dinner there with a party of six. The restaurant was very very busy.Hint: make reservations! However, our table was ready, and the service was never rushed or inattentive. The food is terrific. All the appetizers were outstanding. We had wine mussels, caprese salad, and beef carpacchio and all three were great. All the entrees were delivered hot and... More

We were recommended this place by the holiday house rental owners and it was brilliant. We went on a Monday too so got a discount of 30%. The service was great, waitress very knowledgable, wine choices excellent and food just Devine! Highly recommended to all. I would be happy to pay full price but a bargain makes the experience sweeter!

We love Baci Bistro as it takes us back to our visits to Italy. The food is very tasty and quite authentic. Love the flavoring, fresh ingredients and quaint ambiance of Baci's. We love to celebrate special occasions at Baci's and have never been disappointed with the food, service or wine. Highly recommend this restaurant for dinner.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience here. We were seated immediately (we arrived a few minutes late for our 6:00 reservation) and were promptly greeted by the staff. I expected them to be on "island time" like a lot of the places here but that was not the case. Excellent quality Italian food at reasonable (for Oahu) prices.... More
