'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

1st time there & I thought it was solid.

Appetizers very good and entrees were good.

Lobster ravioli was a little disappointing but the gnocchi entree every good. Our third entree in the group was the Veal Saltimbocca which was pretty good.

Service was excellent...

Based on reviews I thought it would be better but still worth going to.

Food was authentic and well prepared dishes. We enjoyed the homemade pasta. Bread basket was good not great.
Service was lackluster and unenthusiastic.

New Year's Eve was our first time eating here. Good food, drinks, and ambiance. A short wait, even with reservations but that was to be expected considering the night.

We have been to Bacco many times, but usually in warmer weather when they have their windows open. The upstairs has hardwood floors, a plaster ceiling and brick walls, all hard surfaces that reflect the various conversations occurring simultaneously. It was so loud the other night we decided to not speak to one another over the ambient noise. They really need to consider an acoustical ceiling treatment and perhaps some tapestry absorb some of the noise.

The food was great, as always.

Went in with a group of four, did not have table ready based on our reservation. Had to wait about 10-15 minutes but the food was great, moderately priced and a neat view from upstairs.

Because it was unseasonably warm for November when we went to Bacco Boston, the floor-to-ceiling windows were wide open on the second floor and, since we were seated right by the windows, we had a great street view. This was the best of the North End! Great food and service.

The food was great. Service was great. Our table was upstairs right next to an open window and it was a beautiful night. The noise level is pretty loud but not to the point of being a problem. I would go back and I would recommend to others.

A friend and I made reservations here on the basis of a daughter's recommendation. It lived up to what we were told. We had an early dinner so the restaurant was not crowded or noisy. We ate upstairs. Our waiter was excellent. He did a good job of explaining various dishes and portion sizes. He was very attentive throughout the meal. My friend had an eggplant dish and I had the lobster ravioli. Both were excellent. We were too full to order dessert.

Birthday for my mom. I called in advance and they td me they have a limited dessert menu. At the end of the meal the server tells us they don’t offer dessert at all on Sat nights. We went to bar after to have an after dinner drink before our concert and we see a couple at a table having dessert. Very confused and disappointed???? Food was just ok in general. Server was fine nothing spectacular. Better places in the North End. We won’t be going back.

We live in Charlestown so we have visited many north end restaurants and this was the best we've had in a while. They had 3 specials and we had a hard time choosing 2 because they were all so yummy sounding. The two we chose were delicious and unique. Salmon on top of spinach ravioli with shrimp and another was veal on top of lobster ravioli. SO delicious and the portion was perfect. The ambiance is wonderful as well, sat upstairs with the windows open it was just lovely. We will be back again!

My husband and I have been going to Bacco for our anniversary dinner every year since our first. This year was #19 and it was another superb experience! Everything about Bacco makes it the right choice for an amazing night out in Boston's North End... food, drink, service, ambiance. The staff is THE best thing about Bacco. What an awesome team they've assembled!

fun, lively place. staff was very friendly and accommodating, despite how busy it was. portion sizes are small, but very tasty. our meat was very tough, which is disappointing for veal but other than that things were good. it's on the main strip in the north end, which is fun but feels a bit like a tourist trap. would give it another shot after going to other restaurants first.

Had reservations. Requested window seat. Seated 20 minutes late and put in a dark corner upstairs. Waiter was OK but less than attentive. However, food for four was excellent and made up for the flaws in service.

This was our first time in North End so we were not sure where to go first. We looked over all the reviews and picked Bacco. It was not a good choice. The food was not horrible but there are definitely better places to eat on North End. We had the Mussels for an appetizer which were in a tomato sauce which wasn't bad, just not great. Then we shared a Caesar salad which was good just at very room temperature. Then we had Veal Picatta for an entree and it was so yellow in color it looked totally artificial. The veal was tender but the color was offensive. There was very little sauce on it and very few capers. No lemons, but lots of lemon color??? We will not return.

Went to Bacco for their Boston Restaurant Week menu selection and was very impressed. We showed up about 20 minutes before our reservation and they were still able to happily seat us ahead of schedule. The food was delicious and the expected North End quality. The service was also great and very quick. Most restaurants scale down the portion sizes for their fixed, restaurant week menu, but Bacco definitely served full portions for each course which really made me feel like I was receiving the value I intended on. The cozy size and atmosphere of the restaurant is perfect for a date night or relaxing with a cocktail by the bar.
