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.

My wife and I stayed in Kailua for a few days and one night decided to try this place. We did not have a reservation but sitting was within 5 min. The 3-color tomato appetizer was great and our entrees, spaghetti puttanesca and risotto gamberini were spectacular. Also, menu prices are below averages in Honolulu. If you are in the... More

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 so they could depart for a flight. All our requests were dealt with enthusiasm. Super... 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, and raspberry vinagrette, and the squid ink pasts with mixed seafood. Tuesday is osso bucco... More

Ate here twice during our week on Oahu. Food was excellent both times but we had mixed service. First instance was mediocre but not enough to put us off returning. Our second experience was outstanding - great waiter! Wine list is good and the food really is delicious - highly recommend, especially a table outside.

One of my best Italian meals ever, and at prices that are reasonable (so rare for Oahu!). Very chic ambiance and superb wait staff. One of my favorite restaurants on all Oahu.

Everyone is welcoming with table setting conducive for conversations. Italian theme menu with many choices for selection and sharing. We decided on two salads and four entries. Risotto was particularly good, pasta and salads good and shrimp OK. Great service and good value. Enjoy.

Get off the main road and find some good food. I highly recommend reservations. Best Italian food thus far on the island!!! We had two of the pasta specials and they were awesome. We added salad and desrt. With a bottle of wine the bill was right at a hundred. Go go go!!!!!!

The ravioli was fantastic and probably the best I have ever eaten. The featured salad of the evening was a beet salad served over local greens and it certainly did not disappoint. Next time we are in Kailua, Baci Bistro will be on our schedule of places to eat.
