What a find, great Italian in San Diego. Atmosphere at the restaurant is great and food is melt in your mouth good. Tony (the owner) and his son Phillip (I think) are very welcoming and took great care of us.

We decided to sit at the bar to eat while we watched the Big 12 Basketball tournament (I had a couple guys from Tulsa, Ok with me) and we didn't order, Phillip just kept bringing us food and wine. His wine selection was impeccable and each dish was just fantastic. We had fresh sea urchin, Caesar salads, veal chops and osso bucco. Everything was delicious, and the home made gelato with a shot of espresso on top was an unbelievable night ender.

We definitely would go back here when in San Diego again!

When you are from Northern New Jersey, you usually know good Italian food and nothing much compares....Visiting North Jersey Friends who transplanted to San Diego recently, we enjoyed the local Mexican food, but wanted Italian so we were take to BACI for a good Italian meal.
We were not disappointed. An extensive menu as well as daily specials made the food choice difficult.
The food was excellent along with the service and portion size. This won't be a cheap date as the prices match the quality of the food and service. We had the cheapest bottle of Chianti wine($50)., although there were many $30. bottles.
The waiters were professional, not unemployed college students...... Like dining in Europe.
I would recommend reservations during peek hours and weekends.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our shuttle driver. We had the best Italian Food at Baci's than anywhere else we ever dined Italian while away either on vacation or business. The wait staff goes above & beyond, the meals are cooked to order, and they have an extensive wine list.

Absolutely wonderful old school Italian restaurant which we found out about from friends in San Diego. It's a little outside of downtown San Diego and well worth the 5 minute drive. Our group had Osso Buco, their signature Swordfish and a rack of lamb. All first rate. The service was also outstanding.
