It's hard to find good Italian on Oahu. I visited here on a recommendation from a friend and was delightfully surprised with how good the food was. It doesn't look like much from the street but it's a very nice place inside. Make sure you make a reservation, this place fills up fast.

I tend to get tired of the chain restaurant-type Italian food, do the food here was very refreshing. It tasted really good, with several different options and all within a very affordable price range. The server knew what he was talking about and his service was impeccable. Great place to go for a dinner date or just dinner with friends.

Coming to Baci is like coming home to ohana. We have been patrons for over 16 years. Always consistent, lovely food, good service and reasonably priced.

Wonderful food and service. Had the specials of the day, beet and goat cheese salad and cheese/spinach ravioli, and was not disappointed. It was so delicious! Also we came in with a sleeping toddler, and the staff was so kind to help us with a "blanket", and comfortable seating! All worth it! Thank you Baci Bistro!

They were very accommodating for two requests on preparing the food in our party of 4. Starting with the Kale and tomato soup-- everyone enjoyed it. Both the heirloom tomato salad and Cesar were both delicious. Everyone finished their main dishes and having tried them all I feel none were subpar. My lobster ravioli was amazing but certainly the cream... More

This is my favorite fine dining restaurant in Kailua. Everything is great: Service, drinks, food & atmosphere. The staff makes this place fantastic. The gnocchi is insane!

Call for reservations if you want the patio which we recommend! We split a salad and ordered the grilled salmon with pasta on the side. Perfectly cooked and not dried out and the pasta was al dented with a subtle garlic butter sauce. We will return!

Four of us went for dinner. Three of us enjoyed our meals. Our fourth diner had ordered the veal and it was full of gristle. When he complained about it there were no apologies or any sort of consideration for the quality of the meal. We felt that our waitress was very condescending. We won't be returning.
