“Amazing dinner experience”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

We frequently go to this restaurant and bar, it is amazing. The atmosphere is very cozy, The whole experience is very unique. They bring the fresh seafood, beef, veal, crab legs out to the table and explain how they can prepare them for you. Everything about this restaurant is great, starting with the appetizers, breads, atipasta, main entre and end with the dessert, and or lemon chello. We have gone in many times just to sit at the bar and have drinks and appetizers, they are the best, scampi, delicious, scallops, bruschetta, all amazing. We recently took our cousins from Kentucky and they were so impressed with everything they are coming back up in May. If you want the food experience that is above the rest, you have to try Baci, you wont be disappointed.

“Inhouse Dinner and Entertainment”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

Bythe name you can tell the restaurant has Italian cuisine. The entries were well-balanced, unlike some Italian places that offfer items heavy on cheese and pasts.

“Outstanding experience”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

The atmosphere was very cool, we had reservations an where seated immediately, our server, Renee was very nice, was very knowledgeable about all the menu selections. The food was outstanding, everything was done to perfection. After dinner we had tarimisu for dessert, homemade and the best we have ever had. Then the owner came by our table and ask how it was and thanked us for coming. So very nice to find a fine dining restaurant that really cares and gives you impecable sevice. We will frequent the restaurant offen. Thanks for the great evening!

“They have a nice "extra touch"”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

We frequently go to this restaurant. It is one of the nicer restaurants in Sandusky. If you like fresh seafood, beef, veal, ect. They always have something on the menu. They bring out the cuts of food for you to look at before they cook it up fresh. An appetizer, bread, salad and lemon chello all come with your meal. The atmosphere is very unique. You feel like you are in another town. And if you like to dance they have a quaint dance floor next to the bar.

“WOW!”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This place is awesome! I can't even say enough about this place. My husband and I went there based on the reviews of this site for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. We got there as soon as they opened because I didn't check the hours of operation. Anyway. The Service was excellent, they were very friendly and courteous, we could hear the Italian chefs in the back talking, and the server apologized that we could hear them, and I told him it just added to the feel of the place! The presentation of the food was excellent, and not only did it look good it tasted very good. Do not be fooled by the pictures of the food, the portions look small, I promise you will walk away totally stuffed! Even after all the good food and complimentary appetizer the chef made for us, they were having internet problems and could not run our credit card. We waited and waited and they brought us a house lemon drink that was out of this world complimentary of course for the wait, and to no avail the internet would not go through, so then dinner was on them they said! Have never had a better fine dinning experience in my life. This will definitely be a must stop for us every time we are in Sandusky. Very Highly recommended! ,

Thank you VERY MUCH for the outstanding review and rating of your recent experience at Baci! I'm very sorry that you encountered problems with our credit card processing, but it sounds as if the staff did the right thing and tried to compensate you adequately for your trouble.

I'm SO happy to hear that you enjoyed not only the wonderful food, but that the staff was as attentive as they were. I'm also glad to think that we had a minor role in making your 10th anniversary special--congratulations! We can't wait to be of service to you again very soon!
