Taking Grandma to Lunch
Great location, Grandma walker friendly, broad variety of food - crowd pleasing, fresh food, made to order, comfortable atmosphere. Music was a little loud, but they turned it down per our request.

My new favorite restaurant
Sent a message to all my friends to go to this wonderful
restaurant. Only hope the location keeps them in business.
Just need to get the word out. Have lived in Ft. Collins
for over 37 yrs. So glad we have a new great restaurant.
Can't wait to go back.
Karlee was a wonderful server. Will ask for her next time.
Will definitely return soon.

A Great Find!
Our little group enjoyed everything about this place, from the online menu and reservation options, to the actual experience, which was a great one! Great food and presentation, awesome service... you won't go wrong with this place.

Bacco's the best.
Menu has great variety - hot and cold tapas, pizza, pasta and other entrees with Meditteraean flavors. Everything we had was delicious

A FRIEND HAD GIVEN ME A LIVING SOCIAL COUPON FOR THIS RESTAURANT. I had never been to Bacco, so I looked up reviews, many of which were critical of service. We came at 5:30 so there weren't many people yet on a Wednesday eve, but we thought the service, and the food, was excellent. We will return.

Great server and great food
Read mixed reviews. Shouldn't have worried. They had our table ready - it was in the back and the ac worked great. We were taking 3 hungry college students to dinner and fed them well and at a great price. Our group had the chicken and veal parmigiana, chicken brick and a pasta dish as well as a lamb appetizer and mozarella caprese. I had a great Malbec. Everything was delicious. Our waitress, Karlee, was always there when we needed her, kept us supplied with water, chatted - but not too much and made excellent recommendations. We would definitley eat there again and highly recommend it to others. It was also great not to have to worry about parking!

Beautifully presented but one chicken dish was very over cooked.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Super food and service
You will not be disappointed! Bacco has a varietal menu and great service. Our server, Eric, made our dining experience very enjoyable. The food is DELICIOUS! Save room for dessert as the selections are lovely. We ate on a Friday night and there was a healthy crowd, but reservations weren't really necessary. Enjoy!

New dining favorite
New diners who had dinner three times in nine days. Huge menu so it's helpful to study on the webpage before arriving; the wine list is adequate, heavy on Italian labels. Dinner portion size comfortably generous. Wide variety of dinner entrees on the upper end of mid-price range and caters to adult diners, plus also have a large tapas selection that provides more economy and alternatives for a smaller appetite. Food quality very high, though perhaps a bit overstated and might benefit from slightly more subtlety. Servers are very congenial, attentive, efficient and don't rush the patrons. Table spacing is comfortable enabling private conversation. Ambiance pleasant, relaxed & informal, while somewhat upscale but short of elegant.

Oodles of Gluten-Free Noodles
LOVED the gluten-free options. It was heaven. Lots of creative GF tapas and excellent GF pasta. Knowledgeable waitstaff. We'll be back.

Those who have found Bacco are delighted, keep up the good work.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Bacco did not disappoint. A friend told me about it so I checked out the menu online and got very excited. The experience was better than expected. The food was outstanding…The Pomme Frites and Bruschetta Avocado are to die for. Our entrées: the Tortellini Al Salmone and Ravioli Aragosta were outstanding. Plus, the Cannoli was as good as my Italian grandmother made. Can’t wait to go back… to Bacco!

I love non chain good restaurants. Great service and amazingly good Italian fair. Quite above average!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've dined at the Fort Collin's Bacco half a dozen times or more.One time we even had take out. Each time was delicious and surprising. Each dish has its own personality. My husband loves the Pollo Saltimbocca and ordered it a second time for his family birthday dinner. I haven't had lamb steaks as good as Bacco serves since visiting Italy several years ago. Both the spinach and the butter squash raviolis are delicious and pair well with any one of the salads. Wonderful desserts and a wide selection of wines.We recommend it for lunch with friends, romantic dinner as well as for family or group celebrations. If you haven't been, do so soon. Wonderful restaurant!

Great for a large group
we had a group of 12. We added one person at the last minute and they handled it without difficulty even though it meant adding an extra table. Service was outstanding for any size party... very impressive for a large table. Most of the food was quite good.
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spicy is not all the wonderful.
I've had many dishes at Bacco and have loved them. This time I asked about the "spicy" sauce for the half lobster. I was told it is very light not that noticeable. I found it to be too spicy for my taste. Wait staff all over tend to under rate the spiciness of meals.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service was excellent. The food was excellent. The wine was excellent. Add to this a Monday half price special and you have a winner. See you next Monday!
Re: noise level: it was busy but not so noisy that it distracted from the meal. Good show!

Our first visit--not our last!
We discovered this restaurant on OpenTable and decided to give it a try. The menu was very interesting and the food did not disappoint. Everything was very tasty and I loved the fact that they had some organic greens on the menu. Looking forward to our next visit...hopefully soon!

We took some friends out to thank them for helping us do some moving. There were six of us. The food was great. The basil dipping sauce that came with the bread gave me shivers it was so good. THe rest of the meal did not disapoint. Service was good and attentive without being in your face. Portions were good sized. The noise level is a little loud, but that's due to room acoustics. The half off special on Mondays is the best deal in town.

We have enjoyed the tapas in the bar, with very interesting cocktails to go along with them. The entrees are superb, with a nice balance of tastes and flavors, built on traditional Italian basics. Service has always been excellent, attentive but not pestering (we like the fact that they remember you after a couple of visits).

One of a precious few places in Fort Collins incorporating the culinary tenets of Napa Valley cuisine.
Fresh ingredients, thoughtful and flavorful palate combinations, attention to detail and presentation.
Bacco is a neighborhood gem that is inclusive, not exclusive. The staff attends elders with equal care
and consideration as they do the 20 - 40 set. The atmosphere is comfortable and the food is well considered,
both in terms of color, texture and flavor blending and presentation.
The chef splits plates without any condescension or embarrassment to the customer.
Umami is the FIFTH recognized taste sensation people experience when savoring food.
Training someone on staff in the nuances of wine pairing compliments your offerings.

Happy hour extravagansa
We were there for the third week of the 1/2 price special on Monday nights. It was hopping and glad to see the word getting out about this restaurant. It is worth the drive to find this place. While the entrees that we have tried are mediocre, the tapas and salads are fabulous. Plenty of options to choose from and just the right amount for sharing. Make sure to make a reservation if you are planning to come for the Monday night special ... easy to do online.

Awesome Service, Delicious Food
I brought a large group here for my birthday. The service was amazing. Our group kept getting bigger unexpectedly and the wait staff was extremely accommodating. Our server was a lot of fun and super helpful and professional. The tapas list is amazing and you really can't beat the half off everything deal on Mondays. Will definitely be back and am happy to know this is a great place to bring a large group. Keep up the good work! (Also, cocktails and wine options are both outstanding).

A Nice Surprise
Can't make it to the Mediterranean, go to Bacco's instead. An extensive menu of delicious choices, guarantees a return visit will be on your calendar. The only issue we had was as the night went on, the restaurant lighting became a problem and reading the menu almost required a flashlight. Our "cozy" ambience table at sundown soon became the table in the dark corner. Maybe candles on the table would help. We noticed this was an issue at other tables, mostly on the perimeter, and overhead the more senior couple behind us saying, "I can't see a damn thing on this menu."
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I enjoy going out to dinner on Friday night-which is out Date Night. Several friends had remarked how much they enjoyed Bacco-so off we went to see for ourselves! WOW...portion size was perfect, food tasted great, and the wine prices were in budget. Our server was friendly and engaging and did not call us 'guys'! As we ended our meal-once again we were pleased when our server asked if we had enjoyed our meal-verses asking if we were 'done working on it'
We will be back! thank you for a lovely evening.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is a great place to go
This is a great place to go for a light dinner of tapas and wine. Definitely one of our favorites!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Monday's are a hit!!
Bacco's is a great neighborhood restaurant with good service, ample menu and tasty food. Monday's half price off the menu is a huge hit. Not sure how long this special lasts but get it while you can. Food portions are ample, not huge, and all the items we have ordered have been very flavorful. We will be back...
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
We live in the neighborhood and appreciate Bacco. It's a friendly place with an interesting menu. We sometimes have dinner, and sometimes have small plates and some wine. It's a terrific happy hour destination with loads of tasty small plates to share. And right now, on Monday nights EVERYTHING -- drinks, wine, appetizers and meals, is 50% off. Can't beat it!
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, again
Broad wine list (with many excellent choices). Food is delicious! Mezzo Mondays means the waiters are very, very busy - and sometimes you have to wait a bit (wine helps pass the time). Lamb chops, filet of sole were outstanding! This has become one of our favorites.
11/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful local dining experience
We loved the variety of this menu, it was so hard to pick, everything sounded so delicious. We will keep coming back, the food and service were wonderful. We are excited about trying new things on the menu, as well retrying our favorites.
