33rd Wedding Anniversary made perfect

Reserved our anniversary table for 2 thru Open Table based on TA reviews, pictures and menu. Having just flown into town, staying near the convention center, and w/o a car, we knew this dinner might be an adventure; a lot like our marriage.

Thrilled that we had read about Baci and decided to try it. Food is delicious and waiters in tuxedos are wonderful. We had very fresh Caprese salad with heirloom tomatoes, Veal Piccata and Swordfish Piccata. Food was very fresh, perfectly seasoned and nicely served. Don't miss this charming restaurant.

There are lots of Italian restaurants in San Diego. None beat Baci's for consistently great Northern Italian cuisine. Everything is well prepared and delicious. The swordfish oreganata is different, and it's fantastic. All of the veal dishes are also superb. Expect great service from a tuxedoed waiter, a nice atmosphere, and a memorable meal. The only knock on Baci's is... More

I keep thinking about the gnocchi I had here, it was the best I've ever had! My family had a wonderful New Year's Eve dinner here. The waiter brought complimentary ginger ale in a champagne flute for my son so he could toast with us. My husband had some sort of fish (I forget what kind) and he said it... More

We felt as if we were walking into the ‘50s when we saw the lovely interior of this place and the elegantly dressed waiters. We had seen the rather plain exterior for years from nearby I-5 and one day we decided to try Baci. Wow, were we surprised by the quality of the dinners! This place is now a favorite... More

We picked this restaurant based on the good reviews on tripadvisor and I'm glad we decided to try it. We were running late and changed our reservation from 7:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. without a problem (they were so nice on the phone, very accommodating). We had a short wait for our table when we arrived, so the hostess (owner?)... More

Walking in was like returning to the good old days with the waiters wearing tuxedos. It was obvious that our waiter had been working here for a while. He explained the menu very well. The one problem was with all the specials that were featured. It would have been better that instead of telling us that we would have given... More

The restaurant is totally unpretentious from the outside and located in one of San Diego's many suburbs on a frontage road. Though internet reviews about the food and service were hopeful, I wasn't sure what to expect. The total dining experience was delightful. Decor was elegant but not showy or glitzy. Freshly made tortellini that melts in your mouth, filet... More

Nice to get away from the crowd and enjoy some Italian. Service was excellent well worth the cab ride from the harbour.

I've been wanting to try this place for a while. I think I psyched myself up too much as the experience was neither outstanding or disappointing. It was slightly challenging to find parking but they do have $3 valet available. The restaurant itself was rather "stuffy" inside. The flair of the atmosphere reminded me of the east coast as well...
