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!

    Food 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.

    Nice 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.

    We 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.

    I 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.

    Bacco 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!

    I 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

    I 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.

    I 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.

    We 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....

    Made 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!

    We'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.

    We 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.

    We eat here several times a year with the extended family. The food is very good, the price reasonable. The servers are always really nice & accommodating (gave my elderly dad a pillow for his chair etc). They have popular outdoor seating in the summer. The music (always Sinatra) can be a little loud.
