A word from Bacco - North Wales
Welcome to Bacco, a Neapolitan family trattoria specializing in homemade Italian dishes and wines. The name Bacco is Italian for "Bacchus", the mythological god of "good times" who taught mortals the celebration of the grapes and living every day to the fullest. Bacchus is the essence and enjoyment of the food and fruits of the earth. The meal is the center of Italian culture. With its own wine room, martini bar, indoor garden and bocce court on the patio, Bacco is truly a cut above the rest when it comes to authentic Italian dining. A large choice of family-style dishes allows everyone to share their selections, creating fun and the warmth of dining in the manner of the Italian family table. Benvenuto!Continued

- ServerItalianFoodPlaceDined on 11/8/2014Server did not know the proper etiquette for opening a bottle of wine for the table. Food was OK. Service was acceptable. Back ground music too loud.Special Features:
- Great Location!goodtimes2014Dined on 10/27/2014Very moderate prices for the amount of food you get! They do not skimp on portions. The salad was ultra fresh and very tasty. Service was pretty good, but could increase visits to table. They were more into cleaning up at that time of the night. Only draw back is the crowd is out of there and they close up shop early during the week.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Loved it!!OpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 10/15/2014Our family dinner for 8 was terrific....food and service excellent....pretty space as well....patio and lively bar... Will return again soon.Special Features:
- delicious and nice atmospherechrisb24Dined on 10/11/2014Got the seafood fra diablo and my hubby got the crabmeat over cappilini. Pasta tasted homemade. Only negative was the waiter did not check on us after our food was brought to us. I had to flag down the hostess for grated cheese. We weren't rushed. Received plenty of food. Price was reasonable.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Good food, bad servicebaxtersdadVIPDined on 10/10/2014First, let me point out the food here was pretty good. However, I will never eat here again. Without going into a lot of details, the overall wait service was unsatisfactory. Additionally, my party of 4 was promised complimentary desert by the manager due to of a number of inconveniences we experienced during the meal. When the bill arrived & we questioned the fact we were charged for all 4 of our deserts, we were the told the manager's intention was that we receive 1 free desert for all 4 of us, not 1 for each of us. Although the manager eventually agreed to comp 2 of the deserts, the resolution of this matter & the overall service resulted in an 1 1/2 hr meal which caused my group to arrive late at an event we were attending after dinner.
- Wonderful dinneraba1964Dined on 9/26/2014Had a fabulous meal - and at 9 PM, live music started in the bar! Great night!Special Features:
- great foodcindykVIPDined on 9/25/2014Food was very good. The stuffed long hots were amazing. I'm so glad when a restaurant isn't afraid to serve something spicy when they advertise it as such. Flavorful with great heat! The fried calamari was a bit over breaded in my opinion, but at least they were fresh... not frozen. We also ordered the pork and broccoli rabe sandwich. All the ingredients meshed well together and had the correct ratios. Our server, Massimo, was very attentive.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Noisy, but flavorfulLuvs2eatDined on 9/20/2014Nice setting and overall good food. There were 8 in our group. Were were sat right away. Very noisy on Sat. nite with a live band. People were talking very loud because of the music. That created an uncomfortable experience while dining. Hard to hear each other talking. Drinks were perfect, nice portions of food. We decided to have dessert somewhere else because of the noise level. Overall it was nice.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great DinnerOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 9/15/2014We loved it. Hav'nt been there in about a year but we will return more often...house made pasta and sauces were great. My friend had an excellent steak...tender and juicy with a mushroom sauce...our server was really good and gave us special effort...bar was really nice and crowded.Special Features:
- Another Great Dining Experience!!smxccDined on 9/13/2014We love Bacco's!! We had gone there to sit outside...(We love their patio setting)...but because of the weather we were given a table inside. We were not disappointed!! The experience is like sitting at an "Italian Sunday Night Dinner" and we love it!! They sat us earlier than our reservation...the service was great...the beer was cold...the bread was delicious...our meals were awesome and our desserts were super!! We love to plan going to Bacco's and we love to visit Bacco's! We will start to plan our next visit soon.Special Features:

- Just okay during the week.DiningwithfriendsDined on 9/2/2014I have gone to this restaurant before but was disappointed this time. The staff seemed inattentive and my food was actually undercooked. This is the first time that we've gone midweek, so perhaps the weekend staff is more on the ball. Everything just seemed so blah for the price.Special Features:
- Delightful DiningGeeskiVIPDined on 8/29/2014Each time I visit my children in Blue Bell we always have dinner at Bacco. It is a wonderful, warm and welcoming place to dine! The food , service and atmosphere is perfect for a great family time together! Look forward to my next visit to this area and having a perfect dining experience with all my family!Special Features:
- One Bad EveningRysdesVIPDined on 8/26/2014Bacco is a decent restaurant that we go once in a while. But our recent visit was simply a flop. Clearly that evening the restaurant was under staffed and whoever cooking in the kitchen was not doing the job right. It took 30 minutes from ordering to having food put on the table. The waiter did not come to talk to us explaining the delay. We were just left sitting and waiting. The side vegetables were cold. The meat was quite salty. At the end we inquired about the situation with our waiter. I was told that it took a long time to cook the pork chop. 30 minutes to cook a piece of pork chop! Really? We were offered a free dessert by her . We chose lemon tort. When we got home and opened the box, it was a piece of cheese cake!Special Features:
- WHAT a disappointment!mlmarcyDined on 8/26/2014I been to Bacco many times . At my recommendation seven neighbors and myself went there. no one was at the hostess stand to greet us and direct others to our table . We went to the patio, which we requested, and no table was set up for us. We waited a considerable time until someone was located to set us up and then until the table was set up. It was a long time until drink order was taken, we had to ask for water and bread, and when our pizzas came, the crust was burned BLACK! The waiter also rolled his eyes all the time . he commented that they were short staffed. Discussed this all with manager and was told that the oven does pizza like that. REALLY? They made us new pizzas and guess what not burned
- Very Very GoodOpenTable Diner Since 2009Dined on 8/18/2014Loved our dinner...all 6 of us had something different.....all excellent....we loved our server....informed and professional...music group a nice addition to a lively bar.Special Features:

We'll be back soon!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- out door diningworcesterfoodie1Dined on 8/15/2014while the outdoor dining area was quite beautiful it was a little noisy that day with several large tables of customers which is good on a Friday at 2:00 service was wonderful and the food as always outstandingSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Dinner with CoworkersRxJeffDined on 8/8/2014I am no stranger to Bacco, so when I invited five coworkers to dinner for a celebration, I felt fairly sure that everyone would enjoy the experience. We were seated just prior to our Open Table reservation time, starting the evening off on the right foot. The five people with me had never been to Bacco before, so their experience would be more objective than my own. Everyone loved their meal and the service. One of our group ordered an off menu item and our server took the request without so much as batting an eyelash. Another ordered an item and requested that the pasta be gluten free - again no problems. The server was attentive but we never felt rushed and actually spent about 2 hours there and enjoyed every minute.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Nice outdoor diningMaryDined on 6/20/2014Went there because of the outside dining. The food was good and the service as well. The sun was a bit of a problem. Would suggest installing tilting umbrellas and turning the tables for two so neither chair faced west.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- A shamebeerdinerVIPDined on 6/15/2014I used to love going to Bacco. The food is good and the restaurant is well set up. However, the service is atrocious. We had a reservation for 6:30 on Father's Day. We didn't get seated until 7:00. Everything went down hill from there. No waiter came over until about 7:15; we only received one of the 2 appetizers we ordered (after 30 minutes); and the dinner did not get to us for 2 hours. We almost left several times, but we were starving so waited it out. I know it's was Fathers Day, but they were completely unprepared. They gave us a discount of $30 on our bill, but it had nothing to do with the money. This is not the first time the service has been extremely slow. I wish they would get it together.
- Way overbookedoverbookedVIPDined on 6/15/2014We went for dinner this Saturday, Fathers Day. They booked way too many reservations, and while it is a very large restaurant, the kitchen COULD NOT support it. We waited TWO hrs for food!!! (Others around were on hr 3!) we were ready to walk out when it came and it was less than satisfying..... Pretty restaurant with outdoor seating and good ambiance... Not sure that's enough to offer. Definitely never go back for a holiday! Maybe a slow Tuesday....
- Not sure how I feelFoodloverDined on 6/15/2014Made reservations at 6:30 on Father’s Day; we got there on time but had 2 wait a bit. We ordered 2 appetizers one came out but we had 2 wait 15 minutes for the second one. The waitress was great but we could see her frustration as she had 2 come to us twice to tell us that the food would be out shortly but it seemed 2 never come. The management was MIA. At 8:45pm we decided 2 leave. The waitress ran out after us with our food packed to go and said just take it. We didn’t want to at first but we were starving so we did. We ate the food when we got home and I have to say it was EXECLLENT!!!! My husband does not want to go back but I feel I want to try it on a regular day and see if the service is different because the food was fantastic!Special Features:
- Incredibly slow, inattentiveSWPaDined on 6/15/2014We've had excellent food at Bacco before. Last night we had a 5:45 PM reservation with our 2 young daughters. A pleasant but clueless waiter, clearly struggling with English, took our order, brought bread & drinks. We waited. We waited. After over an hour, we spoke with the manager, who said he would put our kids' order in! Around 7:15, food came; not together. First my wife's (which was wrong, the waiter hadn't understood). Then mine, and 5-10 minutes later, the kids'. Still later, my wife's, by which time we told them to box it. No apologies from management. To cap it off, when my tired 8-year-old accidentally spilled her water, the waiter watched, walked away, didn't even bring a napkin. The food is good; the service ruined our evening.
- bad dinnermrmontcoVIPDined on 6/15/2014My main course which was recommended by the waitress was real bad. The service was terrible. I waited for 45 minutes to get my meal after I ordered it.Special Features:
- slow slow servicehorribleDined on 6/15/2014we arrive at 5:31 PM for 5:30 Pm reservations. got drinks then gave server our order at 6:00 PM. Had to ask several times where are food was, got up and left at 7:28 PM, still had not been served dinner. It should no way take over 1 1/2 hrs to cook a meal. Wont' go back every again
- Repeat customerBummerDined on 6/14/2014We had a great dinner on Saturday night. It was DELICIOUS!Special Features:
- Slow!KristaDined on 6/14/2014We had a group of 8 people to celebrate Father's Day and a graduation. We got seated right away for our reservation time but after we ordered our food it took at least 30 minutes to come out. Our waiter apologized several times. Our food was good, but not terrific. I would go back, though, to try their pizza or sandwiches.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
