The chef picked primo ingredients. Had the truffle stuffed gnocchi, beet and feta salad, bruschetta appetizer. Companions had seafood risotto and Da Vinci reserve chianti. Waitress was knowledgeable and endearing, letting us know we had done well with cleaned plates. For dessert, we tried the...More

Had a decent glass of Sauv blanc, and Caesar salad was decent too, but not the best. Wanted to try the lobster ravioli, but they ran out right as I got there. Tried the spaghetti de la mer (calimari, clams, mussels, shrimp in red sauce)....More

Walked in without reservations on a Sunday around 6pm. It seemed that reservations would have been preferred, but they were able to seat us right away. Service was good, left little to be desired, but wasn't necessarily outstanding. We enjoyed the mussels as an appetizer...More

Baci highly has been recommended to us by a local from Lanikai. After 2 extremely delicious courses we haven't been hungry at all but couldn't stand to finalize the evening with a dessert. OMG - Mascarpone Cheescake feels like heaven and you don't want the...More

We reserved through Open Table. We recommend a reservation for this small place. We had ravioli and gnocchi with wine. Wait staff met expectations. Food was good and topped off the evening with chocolate cherry cheesecake and Irish coffee.

This palcce came highly recommended - and they delivered to the recommendation perfectly. Large table (20+) seated out the front in the lanai area. Beautiful setting, exceptionally helpful staff... we were filming, had some guests arriving early and needing to eat ahead of the rest...More

We've never had anything from Baci Bistro that we didn't love. The staff are very attentive and efficient. This is a great spot to celebrate a special occasion.

Of course, it's also lovely to go there in person, too. There's creative (but not pretentious) Italian inspired food here. Not a spaghetti and meatballs kind of place, but not overly-precious nouvelle stuff, either. We love the pear and mesclun salad with bleu cheese, almonds,...More
