“Great Food and Superb Hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We have been to Baci in Healdsburg several times now and it just seems to bet better. Last night my wife had a Mahi Mahi dish that she said was to die for. We were tipped off by four people leaving that the Mahi was the best they've had, and they were right. I had a tagliatelle con frutti di mare that was perfectly prepared with lots of calamari, prawns, and scallops in a light but nicely spiced tomato lobster sauce. The wine list is very strong and while some are enjoying the bubbly, I can have a nice cold Peroni beer on tap. For dessert, I am hooked on Profiteroles filled with a nice rich vanilla ice cream (gelato?).

The owners are real pro's and both of them "walk the talk" by providing the highest level of service from their staff and even higher service from themselves. They are friendly with everyone that comes through the doors and treat their patrons like long lost family. P

Prices are very reasonable, specials are really special, and the whole package is really solid.

“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

Best in town. A wonderful experience. Highly recommend this as a night out on the town. Food was superb and service was outstanding. Cannot say enough good things and so happy we stopped there. Reservations a must around the weekends.

“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.
