“Excellent food, service,”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Food was excellent and so was the service. The owner/chef came to our table to inquire how things were and we said everything was delicious and then he sent complimentary dessert. Jessica did a great job checking on us and the bartender was so friendly and welcoming. I would recommend this restaurant for food and service.

Reviewed April 8, 2013

Great food and great service in a very attractive and comfortable atmosphere. Our server, Renee, was very attentive and helpful with her recommendations and prompt service. The veal was excellent and the margaritas tasty!! Our community dinner club will be visiting Baci's in May and we are really looking forward to another great meal!

“Dinner”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

WOW, what a surprise to find this fantastic italian restaurant at the Comfort Inn hotel in Sandusky, Ohio. The food was superb and only matched by the exceptional service of Renee. They ran out of the appetizer we ordered and Renee got us a complementary antipasto. She recommended the house cabernet and it was wonderful. My son's entree did not include a salad, and she prepared a complementary one for him so he would not feel left out. My husband and son tried the rack of lamb and the lobster ravioli and they were incredible. I ordered the catch of the day (fresh sea bass from Hawai) and was mouthwatering. The pricing was very reasonable for the quality of the food and we got a 10% discount for staying at the Best Western, which is owned by the same company as the Comfort Inn. Honestly, this is one of the best restaurants I have been to and our server Renee made the experience even better. I highly recommend it.

“Very Good Meal in Sandusky”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Went to this restaurant based on recommendation of our hotel. When we first walked in, we thought we might be making a mistake because it was virtually empty! But we got a nice quiet booth, and our server Felicia was welcoming and attentive. The food was very good, authentic Italian. We got lots of good food for a very reasonable price! Would definitely recommend this for anyone going to Sandusky!

“Delightful Dining”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

When we first entered, we thought that it looked more like a bar/dance club and we almost left. That would have been a huge mistake. You can order off of the menu if you wish, but I highly recommend that you chose the option of having the chef select for you. We were thrilled, course after course. This is truly a unique dining experience, an adventure in eating you are sure to enjoy.
