“Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

While staying in Sandusky we three couples had dinner on a Saturday evening at Baci Restaurant located in the Comfort Inn. The restaurant was beautiful, sleek and modern. We were concerned because there weren't many guests, but were pleasantly surprised when the quality of the food and the experience turned out to be excellent. Our server, Molly, was exceptionally helpful, gracious and efficient. We all enjoyed the dinner selections and our meals. The salads we're great with a variety of ingredients and a good dressing. Two people had steaks, two had spinach raviolis, one had mussels and linguini. Everyone enjoyed the dinner. The restaurant did get busier and although we left before 10:00 we understood there would be entertainment then.

“Wonderful surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2012

My husband and I were staying at the Comfort Inn and were looking for a place to have dinner. Having had some really bad experiences at hotel restaurants, I was hesitant to try this one. We went in and were not sure what to expect. Our waiter took great care of us, but I was concerned when he brought out the entree selections out on a tray, no prices anywhere?!? We ordered and had a wonderful meal!! When the bill came we were shocked at the prices. When I told my husband what the bill was, he said "each?" I said no it was for both of us!! What a pleasant surprise. It is a real gem and I hate to share it!
