I found this restaurant last summer. Every time I walked by there was a line up, I just had to try it and I am glad that I did it. Since than I eat there 2-3 times a week. Couple more vist and I will have tried everything on the menu. Mario and Tony are the perfect hosts. They always make feel right at home.This is a place where I can go regularly, eat well and don't have to take out a mortgage to do it. I love the piano music in the evening. Tony even has a portait on the wall made by a local artist, it is really one of a kind. It seems like everyone knows everyone there. That's a real neighbourhood restaurant. I can't wait for the warmer days to sit on the patio again, I love to watch the world go by. I would recomend Ciao Bella to anyone in a hart beat. Thank you guys and see you in a couple of days.

Last weekend I had dinner at Baci with a few of my frieds. First we had a drink at the bar, they sure have a great selection of Martinis. We tried a few but the one that was the big hit is the pommegranate one( I forgot the name). Once we were seated we listened to the specials, our server recomended to have the antipasto to start with, they can make the platter for as many as needed. It had a very nice selection. Some of us had prosecco, it's an italian sparkling wine, the boys had the draught beer, it is called the thirsty beaver, loved the name and the taste of it even more. I am always partial too a micro brewery. Next course we had a platter of pasta (love the family style dinning) it had tortellini with wid mushroom, gnocchi with 3 or 4 cheese sauce, and a nice spaghetti with tomato and fresh basil sauce. For wine we had the Killer Cab, it is made in New West from grapes from the Napa, wonderfull wine with a very reasonable price (under $60). For main we all had our own, I had the fish of the day, it was halibut with capers and fresh herbs, some of my freiends had veal with marsala sauce others had the cioppino ( a seafood stew). we were all very impressed with our dishes. The service was amazing the whole night, I like the way they work there, 1 person in charge of your table but everyone helps out. We never had to ask for anything, it is like they can read your mind. BRAVO.
Than the live music started, what a voice on that girl!!!! They were playing all kind of music, people were dancing, later on they started playing DJ music, all the new hits, by that time we were dancing too and having a couple of shooters at the bar. We stayed until the end. They called as a designated driver, nice touch. Over all we had the best time there in a very long time. We will be back soooon. Thank you all at Baci.
