Baci is an amazing restaurant. The staff is incredibly friendly, Italian, heavily accented, dressed in tuxcedos and more than willing to take as much time as needed to give you a great dining experience. The decor is nice, classy in an old school way and there is plenty of seating. The vibe is mellow and happy, far from stuffy. The food is amazing. Maybe the best Italian I've had in San Diego. I had the veal chop, reminded me of my nona's. Check this place out don't let the locale steer you away. Don't judge the book by it's cover.
Pros: Food, authentically italian staff, reasonable prices, wine list and dining experience.
Cons: Location is not the best.
Price Range: $25 - $50
