“Lives up to its hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This place rocks! We went there after reading other reviews and they were spot on. What a great place. The owner is awesome (waiter yes waiter) and the food is remarkable no matter what you order. Gonna go back!

“The Perfect "Neighborhood" Italian”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

The minute you enter the door, owner Vittorio will greet your warmly, and usher you to a cozy booth or table inside, or a delightful seat on the patio. When we moved to Anaheim Hills two years ago, we knew that a true culinary scene did not exist in this eastern O.C. outpost. Oh, how I was wrong! When friends invited my husband and I to lunch at Baci di Firenze, we were transported back to our favorite little trattoria's in Italy! Now that we've become "regulars", we couldn't be more pleased with the consistency in the quality and variety of the food, and the excellent wine offerings. The menu is wonderful, but if you're craving something that's not on the menu, Vittorio will have the chef "cook" for you!. From appetizers, to pasta creations, to superb poultry, seafood, and meats, you'll have plenty of keep your palate busy. It's also a great lunch locale! Parking is never a problem in the small strip mall location, and it's right off the 91 Freeway, so access is easy.

“You Couldn't Ask For A Finer "Neighborhood" Italian Restaurant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

After moving to the "outpost" of Anaheim Hills two years ago, my husband and I were dismayed at the dining choices the city has to offer. But, that all changed when friends in our new neighborhood invited us to lunch at Baci di Firenze. That was the beginning of a true love affair! After two years, and many, many meals later, we couldn't be happier that we found the perfect Italian restaurant in our own neighborhood. As frequent travelers to Italy, and true "foodies", we know what we like. To put it simply, Baci is what we like! From appetizers to the exquisite pastas, meats, seafood, and daily specials, you just can't go wrong with anything your order from the delightful menu. If you don't see what you want, they will "cook for you". That doesn't happen very often in the O.C.
Owner, Vittorio, and his wonderful wait staff, will entice you with an excellent wine list, and guide you through the myriad of dining choices. Don't miss this fabulous "find"! And, don't be fooled by the strip mall location. A romantic outside patio adds to the ambiance.

“Best Italian food around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

I want to start by saying that I am very picky when it comes to Italian food, especially after spending 2 weeks in Italy. Baci di Firenze has amazing food and service. You wouldn't know it by it's location in a strip mall, but it will really surprise you. Vittorio, who is the owner always greets you and makes recommendations. The service is top notch. Pasta's are always Al dente, as they should be. Seafood is fantastic. Great wine list and the burrata cheese is to die for. You won't be disappointed.

“Just like being in Italy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I took my family here last night to celebrate my daughter's 21st birthday. The interior of the restaurant is small and cozy and well decorated. We had reservations and were quickly seated. The food was amazing!!!!!! The service was even better as we were waited on by John Franco and the owner himself, Vittorio. They made our meal and dining experience so enjoyable, it was like being at a dear friends home for dinner. We will definitely be back. Thank you for making my daughter's 21st birthday celebration and first legal glass of wine, a great memory she will never forget!!!
