'This spacious, romantic eatery pairs contemporary Italian cuisine with great views of Boston's historic North End. Bacco's first floor is home to a beautiful mahogany and granite bar where patrons drink from an extensive wine list and catch sports highlights on one of two flat-screen TVs. The restaurant's French doors are open during warmer months, allowing guests to feel like part of the action along Salem Street. Diners on the more formal second level devour plates of linguini carbonara, chicken cacciatore and lobster ravioli while enjoying views of the city.'- Citysearch Boston

Bacco never disappoints!! Every time I go here, I never look at the menu and wait for the specials - they are always so delicious!! The staff is amazing and the atmosphere is perfect for a dinner date or a night out with friends. Can’t wait to go back!!

Great meal! Loved the dine out Boston menu. Great options, good portions. I would absolutely come back and I would recommend this place to others. I got the salmon and it was amazing. The calamari was so good! Amazing tiramisu!

Ordered calamari for an appetizer, then veal parm for meal, both delicious and very generous portions. Veal was nice and thin, and there was not an overwhelming amount of pasta and sauce. Nice atmosphere, sat upstairs that had window seats.

Food was very good. And the value for Dine out Boston was exceptional. I wish I had been informed that the coke products from the fountains were not free refills but know I am aware that I will be charged 2.50 per glass. Otherwise awesome!!

Bacco is such a gem I don’t want others to know about it! Food and ambiance are always incredible, and wait staff is friendly but also adjusts to the situation. I’ve been in a hurry and gotten fast service and also taking a long time with friends and in every instance they recognize what kind of meal we are having. Fave place in the north end. Love the Caesar and the Gnocchi!

My family I and went to Bacco for my 22nd birthday. The food and atmosphere was absolutely amazing. The restaurant was filled to the brim with customers, however, so our waiter was a bit slow on checking on us, but he did apologize a few times about it being so busy. I ordered the Chicken Saltimbocca, and i’m not exaggerating when I say this, If I could eat that same dish every day, I would. The chicken was cooked beautifully wrapped in prosciutto (not sure where they get their prosciutto from, but I would love to know because it was out of this world). The dish also included cheese ravioli that was perfectly al dente. If you are looking for an AUTHENTIC Italian experience in the North End, you absolutely should check out this place. I will be coming back for my 23rd next year.

The customer service was excellent. They went out of their way to charge my dying phone. Even though we had reservations and arrived early, we were allowed to take our table early. We did not feel rushed at all. Our server was beyond exceptional. He knew the menu and was very attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant. It was our first time dining there and we will return.

I love Bacco. The staff is incredibly attentive and they are quick. I'm usually there before a game or a concert, and they always deliver hot, delicious food in a timely fashion. The chicken parm is fantastic.

First of all, get an espresso Martini! I visited Bacco on a Wednesday night and I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of space in the actual restaurant. The server was excellent at providin c specials and recommendations catered to our preferences. There was not a single complaint across the full meal including wine, spritzers, martinis, appetizers, main entrees, and cannolis (YUM). The north end is known for being cozy and quaint, but there was definitely enough room to enjoy Bacco and not have to talk over anyone.

My go to place in the North End. Love the atmosphere and the second floor is particularly nice when the weather is warm enough to have the large foldaway windows open. The food is always great, I almost always have one of the specials. Great place for a group that isn’t too large, as the noise level can be a factor. Service is always good.

Excellent service. All food outstanding. Sat upstairs and noise level was low so that we could enjoy the conversation. Nice spacing between tables also. First time at Bacca's and now all four of us plan to return often.

This was my first time here and the place I chose to take my visiting parents. The food was excellent and well priced, and the service was fantastic. Our server was Carlos, he was a joy and very attentive without being overbearing. We sat right next to the open window, which gave the experience an al fresco feel. Bacco also takes credit cards, a major plus in the Northend. If I had to change anything, it would simply be that the tables were spaced a little further apart simply because getting up to use the restroom/leaving was a bit awkward with the person behind you sitting so close. An overall wonderful experience. I'll be back!
