You can never go wrong with the food and wine at Ciao Baci's. They have a fabulous selection of wines - (they have a full bar as well). The food is consistently good and the wait staff are always wonderful. This restaurant was originally a home which was transferred into a restaurant, so it has a cozy feel to it.... More

Ciao Bacci is great after food service is mostly over. With table and lounge space, the environment is cozy and fun.

This place was hard to find. It's a converted house on a tree-lined street, with a very small sign. Being a Friday night, it was well-attended with twenty-somethings. The decor is right for a cafe/restaurant appealing to college students. The food was eclectic and imaginative. My swordfish was a large piece cooked just right and covered with three or four...

We just visited for dinner and drinks on a cross-country road trip from San Francisco. We sat on the porch under the lights and had a very romantic evening. The wine and cocktail lists are extensive-something for everyone. We especially enjoyed the summer cocktails- some creative combinations! We really liked the corn fritters and melon salad-fresh and flavorful. Would be... More

Have visited this restaurant several times and the food has always been amazing. They are having August tasting dinner paired with different wines. Best meal I ever had anywhere. Lovely atmosphere.

I had never had the opportunity to try this cute Hillcrest spot until recently. We had a lovely shared meal of appetizers under the ceiling fans on the porch. Our service was exceptional and enthusiastic even though it was a Monday night. The menu is interesting and diverse, everything from appetizers and salads to heavier entrees. I highly recommend this... More

While in Little Rock visiting my boyfriend's family we picked out this restaurant due to its location near where he grew up. The wine list was great including a good selection of half bottles. I ordered a 2009 CA Merlot and was served a 2007 - GREAT! My boyfriend enjoyed one of his favorite local AR brews as we sat... More

This is a great bar/restaurant. It has the atmosphere of a neighborhood bar where one can come in and have a drink, but also serves great food. We have been there 4-5 times over the past 6 months and been consistently pleased with the whole package. Highly recommended.

To be honest, I did not expect much even though my friends who live in LR all rave about this place - it IS quaint, I'll give you that - but then again it is in a house, so there. The food is delicious though - the goat-cheese stuffed olives are a must-try and I loved their hamburgers. The wait... More

Ciao Baci opened its doors on June 12, 2001, at the corner of Beechwood Street & Woodlawn Drive. Our unique location is deep within the heart of historic Pulaski Heights (Little Rock's original suburb) & is bounded by the city's most historic & fashionable neighborhoods: Hillcrest & Stifft Station lying to the East & The Heights meandering away to the North. The restaurant is carved from a turn-of the-century bungalow with a columned patio, eclectic garden, & the addition of a spacious, wrap-around, deck which reaches completely around the side of the building. Rain or sun, diners eat well outside as most of our seating is covered & near heaters if need be. Our executive chef takes great pains to select the best ingredients from around our community & craft them into seasonally appropriate dishes. The culinary style which would best describe Baci would be "New American" or perhaps "Global Fusion" but always with a clear Southern underpinning.
