    Our meal was somewhat inconsistent - my salad was boring, tomatoes and ricotta with no dressing, and my fish was cold with cold fried potatoes beneath. If it would have been just my husband and I, I would have returned it - it was not edible. The white truffle special was excellent as were the pastas and scaloppini. Service was much warmer than typical - nice change. Bill was huge - as expected.

    I invited a dear friend to a dinner at Bacco, she was impressed, and so did I!! She spends most of her time in NYC, and she thought a place like this only exists in NYC. The staff was very welcoming, hospitable, and helpful in explaining what was on the menu. The food wine. and deserts were great, we will definitely repeat!!

    As usual food was outstanding! White truffles -a special treat. Service was just ok. Sat for 35 min with no one to take our drink order. I had a hard time choosing the wine. There were no cabernets under $90/bottle on the menu. I ended up choosing a cab blend for $20/ glass. This was a big downfall to me. The wine list is extensive but I'm not willing to pay 100-400 dollars for a bottle.

    We invited friends to join us for lunch at Bacco. We had not been at the restaurant for a long time and we were anxious to go back. What a disappointment! The food was over seasoned and nothing seemed fresh. The soup (cabbage and sausage) was overpowered with the pork flavor, the cannelloni had to have been frozen (center was cold) , then topped with a heavy amount of balsamic sauce. The scaloppini was dry, the cod was flavorless, and the chicken dish was way too salty. Since I am a frequent visitor to Italy, I don't think this restaurant would last long over there. Don't know what has happened. Maybe Luciano has left the building!

The food was BLAH and the service for a high end restaurant was horrible. I will not go back and I will definately not recommend it to anyone

    My wife and I decided to have a date night. We both enjoy good food and different resturants. Bacco's was the choice. The service is outstanding and the vegan entree's a nice tip of the hat to healthy eating. The mozzarella served with the Caprese was outstanding. My wife'sea sea bass and sweet potatoes was delicious and a different mix of tastes. She also tried the beet salad which was equally good. My fettuccine was dry, which was disappointing but all other dishes were outstanding, unique and plated perfectly. At one point we felt a bit insulted when we asked a question about the menu and the waiter replied in a condescending manner. The two miss steps dId not dampen our night out. Highly recommend but not perfect.

    The food was exceptional. However, we were sitting in the covered porch area and the rain, which indeed was harsh, was responsible for getting my sweater wet, my chair wet, and quite truly when a couple spends $300 on dinner somebody should be responsible for keeping us dry. That was grossly overlooked as the waiter moves my wet sweater.

    We went to Bacco several years ago and thought it was outstanding. It seems that the menu is considerably different and limited. I had a brussel sprout salad that was ok and veal that was cooked nicely but uninspiring. The waitress stressed that things were fresh and "not heavy." They needed to be more heavy as the experience was bland overall. Not the Bacco that my wife and I remember.

    We made a reservation through Open Table the "day of". We arrived and were seated promptly and the pampering began. We took an outdoor table which has a very different feel than the indoors. Our service was excellent, the waiter took time to explain the menu and provide suggestions on best selling items. Our meal was delicious. We loved our dining experience!

    My husband received a gift card from his boss and we thought it'd be a great lunch date for us after the birth of our lil one. First of all the service was great. As soon as we walked in we were greeted and seated immediately. The weather was awesome so we opted for outdoor seating. We were greeted by our waitress as soon as we sat down. Throughout the lunch our waitress checked on us often enough where it wasn't overbearing. On to the food, the calamari was great. Can't say it was way better than others I've had but it was good. I had the Fettuccine ai Frutti di Mare and my husband had Strozzapreti Norcina; BOTH delicious! Seriously both of us couldn't decide on what to order and can't wait to come back to try other dishes.

    Dined on 8/1/2014
    Let me start off by saying that I though the food at this restaurant was fantastic. Like all great Italian cuisine, the dishes appeared relatively simplistic in their composition, but you could certainly tell the quality of the ingredients through taste and presentation. Despite the quality of the food, I found nothing special about the atmosphere and decor' of the restaurant. Additionally, multiple staff had visited our table and I was not even sure who the actual waiter / waitress was. I guess at the end of the day, the quality and the price was on point, however, the overall environment and atmosphere really didn't inspire "romance" or a sense of being in Italy. I would definitely go again to try the prosciutto and melon.

    Another great meal and experience. We loved the beef cheek and polenta special-pure comfort. The artichoke, tomato and avocado tower is the best salad ever and the salmon is always well prepared. We also loved the quail and the tuna tartare was outstanding. Agata makes every table feel welcome and it's always like a party at Bacco thanks to this perfect combination of great food, competent and welcoming staff and wonderful wine list.

    We were celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary and wanted something special. We were not disappointed. The choices on the menu were unusual and delicious. We loved the ricotta stuffed zucchini flowered. I have never seen that on a menu before. The homemade pasta was exceptional. We needed a long time to look over their extensive wine list. Our server, Sarah, took lots of time explaining menu choices and answering our questions. She was very attentive to all of our needs. It was a warm summer evening and their outdoor patio was very comfortable with the fans running. We looked over their vegetable garden as we were leaving. We will not wait for our next anniversary to return!

    The delicious food, the welcoming atmosphere and the competent servers are all reasons why Bacco endures as the best Italian restaurant in town. The artichoke, tomato and avocado salad and the Brussels Sprout salad are winners, the pastas are delicious, the pastas and perfectly prepared, the fish, meat and chicken are creative and always excellent and the whole experience is a special occasion. Thanks to Dining Room Manager, Agata, and experienced and intuitive servers, like Marc our every need is anticipated and fulfilled and we leave with full bellies and dreams of our next visit.

    Went here for a 1-year anniversary. Exceptional service and the food is outstanding. It was almost too much to take having eaten, I think, 3 different types of bread before the soups and entrees. Each one was so good, though, that it had to be done. Service was friendly and added to the upscale ambiance of the restaurant. All the food was delicious. This place remains a favorite.

    way too noisy ... too crowded .....sitting right 'on top' of people--so much so that a person couldn't hear what their dinner guest was saying but every word of the stranger to your left or right...not a good place or an intimate or romantic or special occasion--not a good spot to discuss sensitive business with a client.... so close to person on my left, I expected to get hit by her every time she started waving her arms!

    We had no privacy for conversation at all. Seated just 10 inches away from another table side-by-side, we could both hear every single word the other table said. There was no way not to - being about a foot apart. They checked out our meals, and we couldn't talk much at all. We were celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary and basically sat with strangers. The food is pricey for what is decent quality, but not all that unique.

    Came here with my BF for our anniversary. It's a pretty restaurant but the tables are very close together. Everything is a la carte which is fine, all of the appetizers and salads are pretty expensive but we were expecting that. The food was good, but I wouldn't say it was amazing. Nice for a special occasion but I'm not sure I'd go back.

    As always, the highlight of the dining experience at Bacco is the superb food preparation and presentation. The menu offers a multitude of excellent dishes at varied price points that make it difficult to choose just one main course. The staff is well trained and very professional. The vibe, even on a week night is fun and electric with many people enjoying themselves, no matter what the occasion. On this particular evening I was there for a business dinner and selected Bacco. Both of my companions were from Europe and were very impressed with every aspect of the restaurant and had a delightful evening!

    Service and attire were just as good, if not better, than we've ever seen anywhere. Prices are high, clientele is exclusive. A little noisy (dishes, conversation). Extensive menu, especially for desserts (dessert menu not shown online). Mid-size room, tables are a bit close, but cozy. Diner's satisfaction reigns absolutely supreme. Authentic Italian ristorante-level cuisine. Glad to see Otto's chicken (no antibiotics, no hormones, free-range) and other upscale local fare.

    We went to Bacco to celebrate our anniversary. The positives...the wine list was amazing and the adorable girl understood our likes and picked us the perfect Amarone. The food was fantastic. I had the salmon and wanted to pick up the plate and lick it! It was so good. My hubby had the filet and it was perfect as well. Desserts were perfect. Wait staff was outstanding! The bad...big open room, loud, no privacy. Next time I would actually request the booth in the bar. Our table was so close to the table next to us that we actually had strangers dining with us. I would absolutely go back or recommend it to others, the goods out weigh the bad.

    Spiedini di Manzo dish the meat was overly done, did not ask how I liked my tenderloin. Would not have ordered a salad if I was told that the dish came with arugula, tomatoes and balsamic glazed lemon oil dressing. Otherwise found your restaurant to be very charming and would try another dish at my next visit.

    Definitely a bit pricey. However, the service, food and ambience make it a special occasion place. The management seemed to know many of the diners personally. We were a little surprised that many people seemed to be "regulars". Although we are not frequent quests there, we were given exceptional service and treated with outstanding service. For a very fine dining experience it was very friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this restaurant! We will definitely go back.
