Great food and nice small setting. Very friendly and helpful staff. We had our wedding rehearsal dinner here and were very happy we chose this over somewhere offsite.
This restaurant is truly a hidden gem of Hamilton. The food was amazing and the restaurant had a beautiful atmosphere.
Had a great time. Luana helped make my husband's birthday there a fantastic celebration. Service great. Food great. The lamb and creme brûlée were amazing! Thank you
Had the opportunity to try this restaurant on my birthday - was not disappointed! Greeted warmly when we arrived, atmosphere was inviting, service was exceptional (thanks Amber!), and food was delicious. Would recommend this restaurant and will be attending again.
We lucked out staying at the Hotel and discovered one of the finest gems in Hamilton. Excellent food served by great staff.
Excellent quality and service. Lasagna is the best I have had. Nice quiet place. Good variety of dishes. Everything was fresh and beautifully prepared.
My husband and I often find ourselves at Baci for a quick romantic weekday meal or a long and lovely weekend dinner. Every time we have gone the food has been excellent and the service professional and friendly. We love this restaurant and recommend it to friends and family often.
This was our third time dining at Baci. I am a foodie and not easy to impress but Baci always exceeds my expectations. fabulous food and exceptional customer service. Truly authentic, fresh, italian food.
