Nice ambience, great for lunch or dinner. Outdoor seating is nice for lunch on a warm sunny day. Great for people watching in downtown Pleasanton. I always order the crab cakes to start and I'm a sucker for shrimp so I love the scampi. For dessert, my husband and I always split the apple crisp. My mouth is watering thinking... More

We had salads for lunch. We asked for a different ice tea and the answer was that only black tea was served. A little disappointment when an Italian bistro doesn't have a light prose go coctail to offer with lunch or a n iced tea with fresh fruit inside . Location: great, pricey.

My wife and I have eaten here twice, in both of our opinions, this is the best restaurant in Pleasanton. We have eaten at 90% of them so far, none of them comes close to this one. You get what you pay for, a couple should expect to pay upwards of $100 or more especially if you have more than... More

Nice atmosphere, great sidewalk dining, good service and reliably good food. We go every few weeks! Fish dishes are always my favorite. Serving size is not too huge and a decent wine list

Outdoor dining recommended, you're virtually sitting at the intersection of Main Street for people watching. Food sometimes wonderful, and sometimes off the mark. Prices too high to take a chance on inconsistency.

Easily accessible on main street. Bread for starters was great. Spaghetti and meatballs were good but the meatballs were very dense and not very flavorful. Service was excellent though and certainly worth a visit.

Hubby and I are staying in the area for the first time while visiting family. After strolling part of the main street of downtown Pleasanton and not finding much open on a Monday afternoon, we chose Baci Bistro for lunch. To begin our meal we chose a Caprese Salad to share. We both love a great Caprese. Sadly, this was... More

We started with crispy buttermilk fried Calamari. The Calamari was outstanding. Very fresh and nicely presented. Drizzle a little lemon and you've found a great appetizer. The Chicken Parmesan with linguini and an excellent marinara sauce was also very nice. The fresh warm bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar added to a very comfortable dining experience. Herb marinaded chicken... More

What a disappointment! My husband and I came here for his birthday but were very disappointed. The wait staff were just not on it, the food was mediocre, and the service was so slow. It's rare for me to leave a place without first having dessert, but not here. If you are attending an 8:00 pm show, then you better... More
