Baccano is an Italian restaurant in Kitsilano, Vancouver. It's both elegant and uniquely modern in its design. Long pendant lights hang over the bar area, while cast iron chandeliers are featured around the rest of the dining room. Tables and booth seating are available for parties of all sizes to sit comfortably. Bold colors are panted on the walls with intriguing artwork that draws the eye around the room. Baccano's full-service bar has a refined, classic appearance to it that mixes nicely with the rest of the building.
This restaurant serves fine Italian food made with fresh ingredients, all prepared in-house. Some of the popular dishes served by Baccano's include the linguine vongole, pesto pasta, smoked Cornish game hen, gnocchi and the scallops and squid ink aioli.
Great food and friendly service. Ingredients are very fresh.
I must say the food is absolutely wonderful. The chef is very talented!
The service level is really not the best. The service staffs are friendly but it seems like they lack proper training. They were extremely inefficient causing service to be very slow. It was not even a busy night.
Expensive for what you actually get.
Service and food were great. The only challenge is the room is quite noisy. Lots of hard edges.
The hostess/waitress was very friendly and attentive. When my guest's meal came, it was not what he ordered, so the hostess said we can have that dish at no cost and they made the dish my guest originally ordered within 10 mins. The food was very tasty, especially the squid ink pasta that they make in-house. The crispy pork cheek pasta was one of the tastiest pasta I ever had. I will definitely return soon.
This is a great option when looking for a high-value top notch meal in a comfortable neighborhood setting. Great service and a nice wine list, too.
Brunch - Best French Toast...in the City 😊
Might have been an off night for the kitchen but 4 dishes were under-seasoned and unappetizing. Service was patchy and inattentive.
Great time! Food was excellent, and nice atmosphere. Would definitely go again!
Outstanding food! Fresh, great combinations, overall a great meal.
Excellent food and service. Unfortunately the room is too noisy. The hard surfaces bounce the sound around and it detracts from the experience.
First the service is friendly and very efficient. Wine recommendation was exactly what we were looking for. And the food was amazing. We liked it so much that we are going again Wednesday (twice in less than a week) to introduce this restaurant to a friend.
Don't miss this get it had a rocky start but on its game now .
we were celebrating my daughters 26th birthday food,service, ambiance were fantastic . we will definitely return
Dinner was good and would have rated excellent if the portion sizes were a bit more generous and the meal warmer.
I went there with my wife based on several reviews. I have to say that the value and quality of the food is outstanding. The should improve a little bit in the service because I think we were more or less forgotten maybe because the service staff was busy with a party of 10 people. Another thing that I think they should improve is on the noise level. I would have imagined that this type of place was going to be quiet, but it was quite noisy for a romantic dinner or date dinner.
Food was so delicious! The favorite of the night was the Vongole. Definitely a hidden gem.
Considering the restaurant was only 1/4 full, it was hard to hear the others at our table. Food was very good but trying a bit too hard. I loved my scallop appetizer and short rib dinner, but others we less impressed with the lobster risotto. Caesar salad is tasty, but when combined with an entrée made for a meal that was too rich to digest. Server was excellent but the hostess was very blasé and didn't make you feel very welcome. I would try it again to see if maybe it was just a bad night.
The service staff were very attentive and patient with my dining companion and I. The food was excellent, the wine was great, and the ambiance was lovely. Very good value for your money.
I went here with some friends for a dinner. The food was excellent, the beef was very tender. My friend has only good things to say about her seafood dish.
