Went to Baci early on a Saturday evening, and the service was borderline awful. Had to wait 10 minutes for someone to even bring menus, then my wine was served in a dirty glass with a prominent lipstick smudge on the rim. The food (when...More

You just cannot hurry perfection :) As you're probably aware, none of our dishes are pre-prepared; they're all cooked-to-order with Italian love and affection. While there may be a bit of a wait, it sounds as if you agree that it's well worth it. We...More

Both of us ordered the tenderloin, which was perfectly cooked. We were pleasantly surprised at how good the food was. The decor is kind of a kick— Baci’s is billed as a night club. Too bad we weren’t there on a weekend night when there’d...More

I recommended Baci to my family based on its #4 of 152 restaurant ranking on TA. Most of the reviews were positive. I am really confused by this. Baci is in the back of a Comfort Inn and has decor stuck in the ‘70s and...More

We're sorry to hear about your less than stellar experience. While there may have only been one visible table in the restaurant, the kitchen DOES also serve a 200 room hotel as well as a private dining area. I'm not saying that this is an...More

We ended up at Baci for a work Christmas party. Don't let the cheesy 80s decore throw you off, because the food is excellent. This is one of those places you wouldn't pick based off it's description or location, but it's really good.
