Emma winter I have been going to this restaurant for the past 15 years and I have never once had a bad experience. The food is great and is good value for money, the staff provide fantastic service and the restaurant has a good atmosphere. My children absolutely love it!. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Paul & Michelle Culcheth Love this Italian. Lovely food, lovely atmosphere would highly recommend.

Phil,Lymm I took the opportunity to visit Trattoria Baci after moving from Lymm twelve years ago. This restaurant has not changed. Great service, fantastic atmosphere and wonderful food. The waiter suggested a wine to go with the meal, it was so nice we took a photo of the bottle! Presentation of the food showed just how much pride the kitchen take in preparing the dishes. As groups turned up looking for tables, the waiters moved tables and chairs to accommodate needs, in true Italian Bistro style! This place is an absolute buzz with great food and drink. Miss it, miss out!

kara sartorri Absoulutely delicious I am not from the area but called in by chance with friends. It was exceptional. Staff excellent and outstanding food. Wish I lived closer

Stevie Livingston Visited Trattoria Baci on Saturday 21st and I was stunned at the amazing quality of the food. My wife and I thought not only the food was great but the staff were extremely polite and very friendly. Another customers son was 21 and the all sang Happy Birthday with a candle on his dessert. We had a Seafood Platter that was very very good. Don't miss this place when in Lymm.

Olivia Los Angeles I absolutely loved this restaurant! On a recent visit in the UK from Los Angeles I was taken to Baci. The food was great! Cooked with fresh ingredients and very tasty. The service was fantastic, friendly, and one of the best restaurants I've been in a long time. Not only that but I felt welcome from the moment I walked in, definitely something I dont find in Los Angeles. I definitely will be back when I'm in town!

Tablesurfer, Lymm A regular haunt, this one, both for the high quality of the food and the attentiveness of the service. Baci is a relaxed, popular Italian with an established history, right in the centre of Lymm village. We were able to find a table easily, and the waiter was quick with our drinks. Soon a complementary garlic bread appeared- our lucky night! For a starter I had one of the specials on offer, Gamberoni Baci, a tasty pot of beautifully-cooked prawns and scallops in an onion and cream cheese sauce, flavoured with a hint of mustard. This was accompanied by crusty bread, slices of lemon and salad leaves. As a starter it was great- while it wasn't available as a main dish it would be superb as one. This was followed by Papardelle con Carne- soft chicken with slivers of bacon and mushroom in a rich tomato and red wine sauce, served with fresh, soft pasta and wafer-thin slices of Parmesan. This really set the taste buds jangling. Though delicious, it was really filling and I found I couldn't finish the whole portion! As such it was great value. This was a great evening, complete with entertaining waiters. I'd thoroughly recommend it.

mike,crewe Went at weekend and food was very good. Staff always make you welcome.

corrine widnes We have been to Baci's many times and we love it. The atmosphere and food are both fantastic and staff are great and inviting. Would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy an authentic Italian meal with reasonable prices.

Shenade, Wilmslow We dined at Baci on Friday 18th September on the recommendation of a friend. The restaurant was very busy with a cheerful and buzzing atmosphere. The staff were attentive and helpful and there food suggestions were spot on. It was such a pleasure and very unusual to be served by professional waiters for a change! We would highly recommend it and we are already looking forward to returning!!

Christina, Hale i have been a regular diner for the past 15 years, and it has consistently been of the highest standard with friendly staff, excellent food at extremely competitive prices, and i rate it as one of the best restaurants in the region.

Dave Chadwick- Shevington Moor Baci is just one of those Restaurants that makes you smile the minute you walk into it. Yes it can be extremely busy and yes you may be snugly placed in a corner on their last table, alternatively you could be right next to the open kitchen watching the dishes coming to life. Its prices are very competitive especially considering it sits on Lymm Cross. Service is quick, but in true bistro style..hussel bussel. Food has a great variety within a small menu. The staff are always friendly, and actually try to make your experience one that you remember. Like all places that are as busy as Baci, you sometimes may feel its a little rushed, but tell them on arrival that you want a break between courses and they will oblige willingly. Like someone else has posted, if its a birthday and you forgot the cake, just drop a nod or hint to the waiter and out will come some form of desert with a candle and the whole place singing happy birthday. Its quirky, traditional, a flavour of the mediterranean slapped in one of Cheshires finest villages!

Twiglet, newton le willows Bad! The service was rude and distant and food bland (especially mushroom starter) and I was horrified that when my bill came a service charge was added and it was presumed I would pay it, so I had to ask for it to be removed from my bill, which I felt was awkward. I wouldn't go back because of this experience

Jonathan Barton - Bollington Went here for the first time a couple of weekends ago, i found the food to be nice. However i thought the serving staff were very rude, abrupt and to be honest didn't make me feel welcome. There are much better Italians in Cheshire go elsewhere

jade- warrington I`ve lived in warrington my whole life(18 years) and ever since I can remember when it was a special event me, my parents and my grandparents went to baci`s. You can't knock the service or the food, even if it is busy. Doesn't that just show you just how popular it is. Baci`s is one of my favourite places to go for something to eat and will be going back very soon.

Partington I would like to say I have been eating at Baci for about 15 years, the food is excellent and so are the staff, I work within the television industry and have taken many clients to Baci, every client thinks it is a fabulous restaurant, fabulous food and fabulous staff. Amanda Nally from Partington

Warrington After all the good reviews, we thought we would give this restaurant a chance. Unfortunately our experience was one of below food and wine. The service was informal and friendly, however, the food was fairly bland. The specials, which I had, were poorly constructed and the ingredients did not compliment one and other. The restaurant was very busy, suggesting that the food is generally good, so it may be worth another try. We raised a couple of our issues with the staff.

Maria, Appleton I could never fault Baci - All the years of going there and never disappointed. Amazing value for money!! No garlic bread can touch the ones Baci cooks up. All time favourite Italian...

Olivia, Cheshire I go to Baci on a regular basis, the service is always excellent and I am always impressed by the high standard of food. The staff all seem very experienced and efficient, catering for families (esp. children) brilliantly. Whenever I have visitors I always take them there to avoid disappointment and feel welcome. It's normally very busy but surely this is a sign that it's worth the visit, and I still always feel like a highly valued customer, definitely recommend it!

Rob, Lymm Having lived in lymm all my life (a whole 18 years now) I think everyone else who lives in lymm has been to baci atleast 100 times! But why not!? Service is great! Staff are very friendly and funny! and like to play little tricks on the locals! The good old fake cappucino! Also, obviously the main reason to go out is the food. The food here is brilliant italian and more recently some good meat and fish dishes. The price is also very right - from 6 for a pizza, around 10 for most pasta dishes and meat and fish dishes all for about the same or a pound or two more. Of course it's always more than you can eat! Don't you dare go there and not get the garlic bread, but i highly doubt you'll have to pay for it, of course it's-a-always-a-on-a-la-housa! (in the best italian accent!) And if your celebrating a birthday if you give the waiter a nudge and let him know of course you'll get a candle in you desert and the whole restaurant singing happy birthday with you! Great value cheerful food. They do not take bookings (they will for parties above 8 or so) and it is always busy so get there early to get in!

Sam Cadishead Went to Baci on saturday... dont normally eat italian, but this was great! Will be going again very soon :-)

Rachael I went to baci the other week we were very happy with all the service and food it was better than the time we went last year. We will definately be returning and love the food! The waiters are also hilarious and make you laugh. They are also excellent with children! Great for birthdays and xmas do's!

Anthony Tomlinson, Runcorn Been to the Baci quite a few times now and I have never been disapointed. The staff are friendly, service is quick and the food is great. Yes, I have seen quite a lot of childrens parties at this place but I can understand why, they have crayons provided and let the kids draw on the table cloths, an excellent idea for keeping them quiet, and they are made to feel more than welcome. I can't understand anybody complaining that the food came quickly! Plus, if you want more bread, hey just ask! This is a great place.

Nicola, Warrington My boyfriend and I decided to go to Baci as it had been recommended to us by some relatives. We realised a short time after arriving that it was a bad idea. When we asked for a table for two, a waiter pointed in the direction of an empty table for two while he was in the middle of something else. Behind us was a large group of children attending a birthday party, which was fine except of the fact that the space between my chair and thier table was limited so I had kids pushing behind my seat every two minutes when they went to the toilet. It was choas waiters running around everywher which gave the distinct impression it was badly organised. Food and trays of drinks were being passed from waiter to waiter over our heads. The manager came over within a short space of time after us taking our seats, we had bearly had time to look at the menu never mind decided what we would like. When we did order the starters came extremly quickly, and my boyfriend joked that if he had wished to have fast food he would have gone to McDonalds. The starters were nice enough, however the menu had stated that they would be served with bread, which when it arrived was a quarter, if not smaller, of brown supermarket bread, not nearly enough. No sooner had we finished our starters had the main courses arrived, they were presented very nicely however it was horrible. It was far too saltly and I couldn't finish it and I was left very thirsty and feeling unwell. The duration of visit was just 40 minutes not the nice relaxing meal we were looking forward to after a hard week at work. Very disappointed and we will not be going again.

Fiona, Warrington Splendid food and good prices, a high tolerance of flocks of children is necessary

warrington very good here i go all the time with the girls for a change of a night out.service is very good,prices extreamly good,but there were some local kids hanging outside the reastruant making some trouble but apart from that exellent!

Kyle, Lymm Went to Baci a couple of weeks ago with my kids and had a very good time. The food was good,the service was spot on and it was reasonably priced. Well worth a visit for those who like italian food.
