Very clean little Italian restaurant tucked in the best western inn. The pizza is so delicious! Everything is excellent! From bread to salad, from wine to pizza. And great coffee too!

Great food (I recommend the lasagna!) Great service -- efficient, knowledgable, and friendly. Our waiter took good care of two very tired travelers.

“Perfect pasta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I am so glad that hotels are frequently offering fine dining as good as any gourmet establishments and the Best Western chain is definately leading the charge. Two of the finest are the gastro-pub at the BW in Stratford, Ontario, and "Baci" in the BW in Hamilton. You know you are in for something special when the restaurant manager makes a point of greeting you as you walk in, and the head chef makes regular "walk-throughs" to make sure that all is well in his dining room. A large selection of Italian favorites is offered and the wine list is well rounded.
The service, by Mary, was spot-on and her suggestions turned out to be wonderful. The hot, fresh bread was accompanied by two different, and delicious spreads and the ubiquitous balsamic/olive oil dip. My partner was delighted to find a shrimp cocktail on the menu that was fabulous; plump, juicy shrimp with a flavorful sauce, and the arancinni and minestrone soup enjoyed by others in our party were amazing; the portions were huge.
All of our dinners; the lamb shank; fettucine carbonara; veal; and chicken were perfectly cooked and offered with a choice of pasta and vegetables. We had alot of left-overs; the servings are so big - and the staff are quick to offer to pack them up for takeaway.Sadly, we had no room left for the homemade gelato which just gives us a reason to go back!
The decor is unusual and fun; lots of wall-mounted flat screen tv's showing old movies The hotel that this restaurant is in is worth a visit of it's own but throw in an incredible dining experience and you have the perfect little get-away. The restaurant is worth a visit of it's own; come up with an excuse to stay at the hotel and make a night of it. It doesn't get much better.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

This was my second time at Baci, the first time being within a month of opening. The food was good. It is nice to have a small plate and a large plate option of the entrees. The wine list is also good. The only pitfall on our visit was the VIP couple and their party whom all the wait staff seemed to flock over. It left us waiting longer than usual to place our orders, get water etc. Other than that I would go back.
