Went on a Sunday night for a Birthday. Drinks were good. Wine by the glass selection limited. Had the flatbread appetizer, expected crispy crust but more like grilled pita; nothing special. Had the house salad which was good. My wife had the Burrata cheese salad, which she said was just okay. For entree’s I had pappardelle pasta with Bolognese sauce which was very good and my wife had cod with orzo pasta which was also very good. For desserts I had the bread pudding which came with some vanilla ice cream and my wife had a lemon mousse; both desserts were very good. But we were never offered coffee and just got the check without being asked if we wanted anything else. Service was just okay; nothing special. Probably would go back but wouldn’t bother with appetizers and just get entree’s

We frequent Bacco and find their food to be consistently good. This was the first time we had a really unpleasant server. I think his name was Peter and he was sarcastic and just unpleasant. We were a table of four and we all commented about his poor attitude which put a damper on the entire evening.

We will make sure that we don't get him again as our waiter.

It was really loud and really hot. It was a Saturday night, but it was packed and there was live music so you practically had to shout to have a conversation. But the food is always good and our server was as well.

I took my husband to Bacco for his birthday on Friday night. We don't understand why we haven't tried this place earlier! I made the reservation for 6:00, we arrived a little early and were seated immediately. They have a decent drink menu. We were brought bread promptly to our table. We did not wait long at all for our meal, and both of our meals were absolutely amazing! And even though we were both full, we ordered cannolis, which were equally amazing! And they were kind enough to put a candle in his and sing to him. Our server, Massimo, was very attentive and kind! We both look forward to going back to Bacco.

The food is always good although a bit pricey but is worth it. I never feel welcomed by the hostess/host. I never go without making a reservation so that’s not the issue. They just seem bored and bothered. Not one time have I ever felt good about the hostess/host and it is getting to a point where I may avoid this place for a while. The wait staff are always great and attentive.

3of our 4 dinners came out raw( they were rack of lamb) after waiting an hour and 15 minuets. Service was not good we had to always ask other wait staff for our waiter. We asked for the manager 4 times before he finally showed up only to listen to his BS why our dinner was so long a wait to be served and what do we want him to do. We wanted our orders to come out the way we ordered them. The manager said he would take 50% off the check. He only took 50% of the 3 racked of lamb instead because we ate them when they finally served them the right way. Our 4th friend waited 15 minuets longer after our initial platters were served. It was salmon which one would think that would have been served first. We will never go back.

After a poor start with seating at a table too tight for two. This was quickly corrected and rest of evening went exceeding well. Pasta fazool soup was superb and lamb was delicious. Pasta was done perfectly and was quite tasty. Will clearly be back.

Bacco’s offers good food at reasonable prices in a homey atmosphere. On this occasion our food was not as hot as the four of us would like, but that did not spoil anything. We’ve eaten here before and will again in the future. There’s a good variety of food at very fair prices. Eating here offers a nice night out without breaking the bank for overpriced meals at comparable restaurants.

Celebrating My Dad and his wife’s Anniversary . I thought they would mention it since I said that was the occasion. Food was excellent. Service so so, I arrived late and was never asked if I wanted a drink until my husband mentioned to the waiter that I would like to order one.
A little tight with the seating. I was constantly bumped by the servers and other patrons.

We love it here. Service was fabulous. Food wonderful as usual. Just one complaint, I wish they would clear a path to the outside area. People constantly stumbling in from the patio to the bar, then carrying drinks back outside. Tripping over chairs and generally disrupting our nice dinner and conversation. Even the staff is obviously troubled by this setup. I saw a guest, who maybe had one drink too many, shove past a male waiter and checked him into the side of a table. No apology, just kept moving. This is a constant distraction throughout our whole meal and we've seen it during other visits. Other than that all good.
