A word from Bacco-Boston
'This spacious, romantic eatery pairs contemporary Italian cuisine with great views of Boston's historic North End. Bacco's first floor is home to a beautiful mahogany and granite bar where patrons drink from an extensive wine list and catch sports highlights on one of two flat-screen TVs. The restaurant's French doors are open during warmer months, allowing guests to feel like part of the action along Salem Street. Diners on the more formal second level devour plates of linguini carbonara, chicken cacciatore and lobster ravioli while enjoying views of the city.'- Citysearch BostonContinued

Diner Reviews
  • "Bacco is one of our favorite North End places to eat. Food is great as is the ambiance."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "The hostesses and wait staff was very friendly and attentive but the food and ambience were just "ok". The veal picatta was very good but mussels and caprese salad were just "average". Also, the "wine by the glass" selection could have been better."

  • "The food, location, and waiter were great. Unfortunately, there were a group of hostesses standing around when we went in, somewhat unfriendly and not very articulate--I had to ask one of them to repeat herself. They wouldn't seat us until our whole party was there (we had half) so we had to go back outside and wait in the rain til our friends came. When we went back in with our friends, the hostess really wasn't doing a great job. She was unfriendly, did not want to talk or look at anyone, and had a fixed frown with a glassy stare. It seemed like her one job--to make a good first impression and make the environment of the restaurant appealing or at least helpful-- was not really manageable for her, and her ill grace put us all off."

  • "Found this restaurant for restaurant week. We chose for my boyfriend's birthday, and it was the perfect fit. The service started out a little slow, but once the waiters realized we hadn't been tended to yet, they made sure to follow up with us accordingly. They were all very polite and respectable. We sat on the second floor close to the windows over looking the streets of the North End. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend and will be back."

  • "The food and service at Bacco's was spectacular! My friend and I attended Bocca's for Boston Restaurant week and enjoyed a 3-course meal for $33!"

  • "Enjoyed the prefixed menu. Had caprese, seafood scampi one linguine and cannoli. All excellent with the exception that didn't care for the artichoke in the scampi. Kin of mushy and too salty. Our waiter was wonderful!"

  • "Bacco is one of our favorite restaurants - great menu, excellent food & service. My husband & I had the calamari & organic greens and shared them. My entree was the seafood scampi & my husband had the veal Marsala. For dessert we had cannolis. We dined during restaurant week Boston for 33 each plus a good bottle of wine."

  • "We went to Bacco for restaurant week. The food was amazing. We'd never eaten there before and I was so happy with the experience. Appetizers were caprese salad and fried calamari which came with something more like a vodka sauce. The calamari were lightly fried and not over battered. For dinner we had seafood scampi and chicken piccatta. The seafood scampi had lobster claw meat, scallops and large shrimp. The sauce had just enough lemon and cream. Desserts were tiramisu and cannolis. So good. For drinks we had an extra dirty martini which was made extra dirty like requested and extra olives. Also, we ordered a martini off their menu and it was also amazing with muddled cucumber and mint."

  • "Food was excellent, had the calamari, caprese and seafood scampi. The tables for 2 are a bit small, but workable. The noise level was moderate because there was a group of 5 girls and the young people today do not have inside voices. They speak at a restaurant as though they were outside. Gone are the days when people dined and kept their voices at a low octane so that only the people they were speaking with could hear their conversation. would highly recommend for the food."

  • "This was out first time at Bacco and we loved it. The food was fantastic, waiter was prompt and knowledgable about the menu and every thing from the appetizers to main meal was great (we were too stuffed to try dessert). Our friends had a 40th birthday party to go to the next day and had such a good experience they bought a gift certificate for the birthday boy as a gift! Only note was the beer selection was not great but that was an easy thing to over look. We will definately be back."

We were seated right on time at a table on the 2nd floor .The wait staff was wonderful/playful and fit the mood of the night just right .The food at Bacco is always spot on,the clams were to die for ! We asked for 3 check as well ....no big deal to the waiter ,he did it with out blinking an eye . For a great night out you can not go wrong coming here ."

  • "Specials were amazing, food was prepared perfectly, great service and overall great experience in the North End. Was planning on going to Al Dente (been there before) but the wait was too long, was not disappointed at all with Bacco. Loved it and would go back again!"

  • "Restaurant is trying to sit 3 people at 2 top tables which is not sufficient space. We had a reservation and when seated there was at least 4 open 2 top tables. We asked to be seated next to the wall rather than in the middle of the room by the service area. They said no because they needed to seat 3 people at that 2 person table. We dined for over an hour with the table we wanted empty and then they sat 2 people there - not 3. Poor wait to treat guests. Plan to be cramped here."

  • "The food was very average. Carpaccio was aa small portion and the meat was tasteless. Calamari was unremarkable. Chicken & Veal Saltimbocca was bland, as was the pasta seafood special. No shell dish was provided for the Clams & Sausage Arrabbiata."

  • "Very friendly bartender downstairs, made some great cocktail and beer selections. The paintings and ambience upstairs in the dining room were very cool. It was a slow night with only a few tables, but still a little loud. Hostess and manager very nice and welcoming. Food was delicious and beautifully presented. Highly recommend."

  • "The restaurant is very attractive, with the bar downstairs and the dining upstairs. We were seated right away. The menu offered some nice alternatives to the usually heavy pasta selections and I had the veal piccata. It was very tasty with wonderful risotto. It was a tad on the tough side but not so much that I had to send it back. Just not as tender as I've had it at other restaurants. The spaghetti and meatballs were excellent. Our server was very attentive but got bogged down with a large party. Her associate immediately saw that we had been neglected and took our order. When our original server was able to get back to us, she was very attentive again. The food was very good and the ambiance quite charming. We would definitely go back."

  • "We all had a great time. The weather was perfect. Therefore, all the windows were open which created a very European feeling. We selected different choices off of the restaurant week menu and all were fabulous. Absolutely no complaints. The only odd thing that happened is they ran out of coffee. But, in the North End that is no problem. Thank you."

  • "The scampi sauce is not flavorful. It is a better with sprinkled Parmesan, but it could use lots more garlic in the sauce. The polenta with Bolognese sauce: the polenta was good, but smothered with just an ok bolognese sauce. The butternut squash ravioli was very good, but not as good as some others in the North End . The green salad with endive, etc. was very good. The Tirumisu was the best we ever had. A nice distinct coffee flavor. The canoli had good filling, but a thick hard shell. They had no coffee."

  • "My wife, son and I had a great dinner. The service was great. The food was great. We sat by one of the balconies. It was a blast watching all the people walking around while we enjoyed our meals. Definately make a reservation."
