If you want to be absolutely sure that everyone in your party can find a dish on this broad menu that suits them, and will surely be pleased with it, and suggests that next time let's eat at Baci's again. That's how we became so fond of the food, the wait staff, and the owners, Lisbeth the owner in front; and Shari the chef in the back.

Baci also does take out!! If you are uncomfortable eating in out...Baci will package up you meal and all you do is call the order in; drive to the restaurant; walk in the front door and tell Lisbeth you name. You server will present you with your meals with everything that you would have had in the restaurant. Please remember to tip the server...they are the ones that put your dinner together ;o)

We dined here on a Monday night. Our starter was one of their wood fired pizza’s - we enjoyed the crispy crust and savory toppings. I then had the pappardelle with lamb ragu. The noodles were just the right texture and picked up the flavorful ragu. My husband had the bolognese which reminded him of dishes we had in Italy. Service was very friendly and attentive plus we got a visit from the chef/owner. The wine list is reasonably priced plus they waive corkage ($20) if you bring a bottle and buy a bottle. Overall, a very comfortable restaurant with a nice atmosphere and great people. We will be going back next time we are in town.

Birthday dinner with friends. Food was outstanding and we were really pleased that the owner and chef visited our table for a meaningful discussion about the food. We were also given the opportunity to have a chat with the winemaker who created the lovely bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon that we ordered. Was beyond our expectations. The Birthday tiramisù was also a lovely touch. We’ll be back!

We went for a special occasion, but did not tell them. Just ordered off the menu and received great food and excellent service. The wine person even let us order split glasses (we are in our 70's and can't drink much any more). The waitperson was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. We had the french onion soup, and two specials for the evening. All in all a memorable evening.

Our evening meal was terrific as always. We go to Healdsburg every March for Barrel tasting and always eat one night at Baci. We have never been disappointed. A very friendly and efficient place. Huge menu with multiple entrees that I love to try. Had the roasted salmon this year which was perfectly done and succulent in flavor. The Scallop ceviche appetizer I have every year as it is the most delicate, flavorful appetizer that I have had anywhere! Wine prices are reasonable and many choices. I would give Baci my highest recommendation for places to eat in Sonoma Valley.

Lots of pluses here. Many menu selections complemented by lots of quality local wines. Attentive and enthusiastic staff, especially sommelier John.

Food, however, was disappointing. The cannelloni was bland and far too processed. Pasta over cooked. Another dish, osso bucco, came with only one small bone of marrow, the meat was over cooked and the gravy was heavy.

Would we go again? Not sure. The dining options in Healdsburg are many and varied, but remember to book.

Baci never disappoints. The ambiance is always energetic but cozy - the wood oven sees to that. The service as always was spot on, not too invasive but we always had what we needed when we needed it. The food was outstanding! All of their salads are good but I especially like the Insalata Rucola. The perfect blend of sweet (apples), spicy (arugula) and savory (dressing). For my main course I had the Tagliatelle alla Carbonara and it was amazing. Perfectly seasoned and the pasta perfectly cooked. One of those comfort meets elegance meals. My nephew got the Clairerita pizza and it was deliciouso! The wood burning pizza oven makes the best pizzas! Baci is one of those places you can go dressed up or dressed down and still feel comfortable. The owner always comes by and says hello to all of the customers which makes it even more comfortable. One of my favorite places for sure.

3rd time - First time to eat at restaurant (ordered takeout in past). Food has always been exceptional and our service was great even though it was packed with people waiting. Reservations allowed us to sit immediately. Be aware there is wine only, no bar/beer. We knew this but noticed some were surprised even though it's clear on menu. Will definitely be back when we go back to Healdsburg.
