We’ve eaten several times at Baci; we’re locals and we appreciate excellent Italian restaurants. Most recently, we brought our visiting son and daughter-in-law.

We had an excellent meal - we really enjoyed all of our entrees (there were four of us) and service was also very good. Only downside is that the restaurant can be a bit loud if you are looking for a quiet atmosphere.

Pretty sure there is a corkage fee but best to check. Many local restaurants do not charge if it is a Sonoma County wine

Hi Jack, The regular Ossobuco comes with vegetables. If you want the combination plate we are happy to substitute the risotto for polenta. Cheers, Lisbeth
