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

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

One of the best Italian dinners, not just on island. Rich fresh flavors that are not muddled. Jeffery, was a friendly, knowledgeable, attentive waiter. Dishes are attractive and generous. Note the photos: food tastes as good or better than it appears. A table in the back or outside may help avoid the on/off freeway ramp feeling that the bustle of... More

We have been to this Restraunt many times it is the best in Kailua. Lovely Italian style food, good wine list attentive and very good service. Make a booking as it is always busy and Monday's has a locals night with discounts. Our favourite and we always go back each time we are in Honolulu.

Stopped in for lunch. Excellent service. Food was perfect and sitting outside under the awning was a truly memorable experience. My husband had the special ravioli with spinach and ricotta and I had the sausage and penne. We also had the garlic bread and a bottle of wine. Out total was $70. In Hawaii we felt that was a good...

We were staying in a house at Lanakai Beach and dined at Baci Bistro, which is about a 10 minute drive into Kailua. For a local restaurant out of Waikiki, we found the Italian cuisine to be very authentic and the produce, tasty and fresh. Service and value was excellent ! Every dish which we ordered was delicious and generous... More
