This was by any means not our first visit to Baci, nor will it be the last but can say for sure---one of the best dinners yet. This has to be one of Sandusky's best secrets as far as a classy atmosphere for dining, attentive/courteous wait staff, and the best mouth-watering food that is second to none in the area.... More

Thank you for your very high praise and kind words. We're glad that the other restaurant was closed and that this led you to us. It sounds as if we've made a repeat customer out of you. We certainly appreciate the opportunity to serve you and hope that we have that opportunity again in the future! More

Great atmosphere, service was top notch. The selections on the menu are all inviting, if they offer lamb, go for it. Presentation was amazing, too. Excellent martinis!

Steak was great, got some pasta and bread as an appetizer that was unexpected, but all I heard was the bartender complain to other co-workers or me about other guests. Not what I wanted to hear.

We're glad you enjoyed the food but certainly concerned about the fact that you had to witness unprofessional behavior on the part of our staff. This is certainly something that we'll attempt to isolate and correct. We hope you give us another opportunity to serve you in the future! More

My girlfriend and I were staying next door at the Best Western and looking for a close restaurant. Baci was right next door. The service was phenomenal - our waiter, Carlos, brought us complimentary appetizers. We both had the díavolo penne pasta and some divine martinis. The price for everything? $40.an incredible value for such excellent service and delicious food!

My wife and I were in Sandusky for one night staying at the Comfort Inn. The hotel restaurant looked really nice so we decided to give it a try.

I got seated in a seat with a leaking ceiling, hair in my food and obnoxious customers screaming and they were teenagers with no adult supervision. Pasta was terrible, pizza was so stale you could not take a bite into it, nor could you cut it. Waitresses were drunk dropping glasses and breaking them in the kitchen and was very... More

Scary place...but we were in the hotel and limited on options. Looks like it was last renovated in the 1970s. That said, staff was friendly. Good if staying here...don't go out of your way.
