Not only was the meal fantastic but the entire celebration was grand. They took our request to the next level. A birthday our... More

We had atmospheric outdoor seating on a beautiful night for a party of 7. Our server, Jeff was fantastic and knowledgeable of all the dishes and the extensive wine collection. Everyone loved their dishes. Very relaxing. Make sure you are not rushed and on a deadline. Definitely would eat here again and again!

I dined at Baci Bistro with 4 others. We had reservations and thus were seated immediately. Menus were dispersed, specials were recited and drinks were ordered. The food came promptly, mussels were enough for all, the beet salad was of a generous size and was shared by two. My complaint is that the service was not attentive enough. We asked... More

My husband and I ate late as there were no earlier reservations. We had to wait outside and had a glass of wine while waiting. The meal was good, they use quite a bit of oil in their cooking. Service was OK.

This restaurant is small and fairly crowded. It offers seating outside as well. The food was very good especially their nightly specials. Wait staff was attentive and friendly and kindly repeated the specials and made recommendations based on preferences. Salads were large enough to share for 2-3 persons. Prices were reasonable

We found this place by overhearing a couple talk about it at another place so we decided to try it. Made a reservation parking is available next door - covered great in case too hot or raining! This is a small restaurant and has a small bar holding only six at the bar. There is dining alfresco as well. We... More

We had a family dinner for 6 at Baci and this was the best meal on our vacation. Baci is a gem of a place in the small town of Kailua which is crowded with fast food joints. Baci breaks the mold and offers an intimate venue with excellent food and service. We had several pasta dishes along with a... More

The restaurant is small, but every dish is flavorful and amazing! The wines are really great too! It doesn't matter if you sit inside or outside, it is a cozy, romantic setting good for couples on dates, or ladies on a night out. Because of the tight spacing and intimate ambiance, I would not feel comfortable bringing children. My preteen... More
