“So good that my girlfriend hugged the owner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2013

The lobster ravioli was so good, my girlfriend hugged the head chef and owner as we left. After a day of visiting wineries in and around Healdsburg, we asked our last stop where the best Italian restaurant in Healdburg was and he directed us to Baci.

We started with an appetizer and I had the gnocchi with bolognese sauce while my girlfriend had the lobster ravioli. My girlfriend stated that it was the best lobster ravioli that she has ever had. As for the gnocchi; it wasn't the best I have ever had, but the spare ribs in the sauce definitely gave it a different feel.

The wait staff was on the ball and always made sure to fill up our glasses when even half finished. Look forward to coming here again on my next trip to Healdsburg.

“Fresh food prepared well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

Good fresh food. Shrimp and scallop risotto dish was wonderful. Cannelloni special was also quite good. Food served quickly and hot. Try to avoid tables by the service doors. It was quite loud with lots of coming and going of staff which distracted from the ambiance. Staff was attentive and friendly.

“Excellent Italian and great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

We had a group of six celebrating a birthday and day in wine country. This restaurant was fantastic. We were seated in a private room (the wine cellar) which was fun since we love wine. The service was stellar from start-end. The appetizers were excellent (Burrata and shrimp), as well as the various salads we ordered. All diners were happy with their meals. In particular, a special for the day was a lamb ragu pasta that was incredible. Others at my table had bolognese and scallops/pasta. The star of the evening was the sommelier. He helped us select wines that we enjoy and paired great with the various items. And very affordably!

“Nice Family Owned Italian Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013

Warm and friendly Italian restaurant located on Healdsburg Avenue north of the Square.

Lots of choices including dinner specials in addition to their standard menu. Pasta is homemade and all dishes are cooked to order and served piping hot.

Only complaint would be that our ordered arrived at our table within five minutes of ordering. So if you want to linger over your wine delay ordering. This was a Friday night so perhaps they were working on turning over the tables quickly.

Would recommend reservations.
