I had a lovely meal at Bacco.
I had a lovely meal at Bacco. I can't believe I've lived so close to it for many years without trying it. I enjoyed the food and thought the prix fixe was very fair, although I ended up not getting it myself, some of my friends did. I had the beet gnocchi which was really good, but I was jealous of my friend's Sacchetti which had a more homestyle taste. I would definitely order that next time. I liked the restaurant and service. I will be back.

Have been to Bacco many times
Have been to Bacco many times and find the food fabulous. The waiters are helpful and attentive (and Italian). Always go there if you have a reason to be in Noe.

Celebrating Bacco Ristorante
I have been to Bacco Ristorante several times and each time the food and service have been wonderful. For this occasion we were celebrating birthdays and had a group of 14 - which I thought was a rather large group for the restaurant but they were very happy to accommodate us. We were seated in an alcove so that we were away from most of the smaller tables, the wait staff were attentive and the wine and food delicious. We needed gluten free meals for some diners and Bacco was totally ready for this request - actually, they initiated the question with us!

Still Good After 20 Years
It's nice to see that Bacco is still doing well after 20 years - that was the last time I lived in the neighborhood. Now that I have moved back, I wanted to check out the local haunts. Bacco's decor hasn't really changed much, and neither has the food. We had a various selection - octopus, antipasti, seafood pasta, rabbit ragu, veal medallions. The Montepulciano was perfect. All were excellent. The tiramisu was spot on. A great night of food and wine!

I really appreciate the awesome
I really appreciate the awesome gluten free selection. The food was great. We got charged for the large plates even though we specifically ordered the small plates of pasta. Otherwise, it was a nice experience.

One of the best meals I've had in years. It was so good we went back a second night during our stay in San Francisco.

One of my all time favorite
One of my all time favorite restaurants in SF, and I have eaten and many of the finest. A true local treasure. Don't miss the risotto!

Favorite celebration spot!
Bacco is our go-to restaurant for celebrations. Delicious food, great service, fancy but not crazy expensive, and usually a table available. You can't go wrong here...

No pretensions, just excellent food
Excellent food and presentation, start to finish. A wee bitty light on the number of calamari in the squid ink pasta with calamari entree, however, but superb flavors overall. Quite reasonably priced, as well.

A delightful evening
A family reunion was the occasion for our visit to Bacco. We had a great time.

I haven't been to this restaurant in a few years. Our meal here was tasty. The pasta is always al dente and the wines are decent. It was easy to get a reservation. I will definitely come back here and would recommend to friends if their looking for a decent meal.

San Francisco Favorite!
Bacco is always a top priority when we are in SF. Delicious, fresh, friendly people and great service.
7/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to Bacco on a number of occasions and have been delighted each and every time. The food is great. They have basic choices, such as appetizers, 1st and 2nd plates, wines, which are on one menu, and a 2nd menu which varies. Excellent choices, beautifully prepared and presented. An absolute delight to the senses!!

This is our neighborhood restaurant, and we often frequent this restaurant. We always find the food and service outstanding. The staff is very helpful and friendly. We have recommended this restaurant to our friends and everyone has been pleased with the restaurant.

Great Noe Valley Dining Spot
I've not been for awhile and have missed an excellent evolution. What a nice place for dinner. Gluten free pasta was available.

This is a gem and has the best Italian food in the United States.

Exceptionally attentive service and food that was nearly as good. A delightful venue for an evening with friends

Fantastic food. You can tell it's made by scratch. This neighborhood gem markets their menu as no GMO, which is always a plus. The service is superb, and the wine list is extensive. Dim lighting makes for a romantic scenery. I would definitely recommend to friends, and I would return myself.

The sautéed clams and mussels
The sautéed clams and mussels in tangy tomato sauce appetizer was amazing - would be great over pasta. My companion had the beet salad and raved about it. We actually chose Bacco because it features gluten free pasta - however, the Tagliolini that we shared was disappointing - the dish was dry and tasteless. The pasta itself was overcooked and not as good as the commercial gluten free pasta that I cook at home. We also had the medallions which were stuffed with red peppers - very tender and delicious. I would love to give them a 5 for food and would have it we had skipped the pasta!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We each ordered a different pasta. Each was excellent. Except for the noise level, which did inhibit conversation, the meal and the experience were excellent.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I used to live in Noe but never venture here. A friend in Noe turned me on to Bacco. We had a great dinner here! The entire staff is wonderful and inviting! The food is superb with a great wine list!! We shared several pastas and an entree so we got to enjoy many things on the menu!

We took our 3 and 6 year olds
We took our 3 and 6 year olds with some apprehension but were immediately greeted with a friendly host who brought the kids some crayons and paper. They also brought the kids' food right away but still timed the rest of our foods perfectly. The food was excellent and would definitely recommend it for family with kids.

Yummy pasta, yummy appetizers. They were super nice. Easy restaurant. Not crowded (we were there on a Tuesday) so nice to be able to hear conversation.

Really nice dinner
I've eaten at this place for years. It's a little different now, with a couple of my favorite dishes gone, no more house-cured salmon or squash filled ravioli with sage butter. Too bad.
We had the fixed priced dinner, but with a grilled calamari appetizer added to start, which was good, tender, but could have had some more of that grill-marked appeal. The Tuscan tomato soup was great on a cold night, the corvina perfectly cooked, and the panna cotta with some plump dark cherries was very good. I love panna cotta. Delfina has the best, Poggio probably second, but this one was right up there, perfect texture. Service was slightly too attentive, and the lighting perhaps too dim, but it is still one of my neighbor favorites.

Glad I found this place!
Was looking for a romantic, but not over the top, restaurant to go for a dinner date. We were promptly greeted and seated as soon as we entered. Our waitress was very friendly but not to the point where it's "too much." Both of our meals (and glasses of wine) were quite tasty. Will definitely return.

Solid cooking, pleasing atmosphere
We had not dined at Bacco in some time, and we're pleased that it was even better than we remembered. Now remodeled, it is a handsome, welcoming space where adults can converse easily (on a Wednesday) and the staff is friendly and attentive. Better yet, the cuisine is well sourced and very ably prepared. We shared four starters, three pastas and a risotto; all were terrific and almost too much to eat, overall. My calamari with canellini starter was toothsome and the arugula was dressed with restraint. My veal agnolotti was richly sauced with cream and veal jus, and delicious. The mushroom risotto was deeply flavorful, barely soupy and quite satisfying. We didn't get to the secondi or try the prix fix menu, but I look forward to that.

Warm neighborhood place
Brought some friends from Seattle here two nights ago. All agreed it was very good. I had the squash ravioli with sage butter. Excellent!
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Something for each of us on the menu which was prepared and served to perfection!
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
My husband and I were thrilled to find this place! We will go back frequently. What a perfect night.

We were a group of six people, celebrating the visit of an old friend. And did we have a GREAT time. They accommodated our request to serve the food family style, and that way we got to taste a lot of different dishes. All were delicious. One of the couples are real foodies from down on the Peninsula, and they spoke most enthusiastically about wanting to return to Bacco. Our waiter, Raffaele, gauged our mood perfectly, and was a big part of the fun we had. And the owner made us feel like we all were long lost friends. We go there a lot and are never disappointed.
