Pizza crust was thin and charred. So good! The polenta was amazing I would definitely recommend trying that!! Long hots we’re delicious but not worth the $9 for one pepper split in half. Overall delicious and we will be back!!

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.

 (New York Area)·Dined on October 6, 2017

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.

 (Charleston)·Dined on September 30, 2017

Let me start by saying that I frequent this restaurant a lot. The start of this experience was bad. Josephine seated us...she couldn’t have been more rude. We arrived to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary and she seemed annoyed that she had to help us. I told her we had a reservation and for some reason she seemed more annoyed! Mind you the reservation stated we were celebrating our anniversary. She seated us near the kitchen even though the restaurant was empty (it was early evening). But thank goodness for our server, Evan. He was amazing!! We eat out a lot and he is by far one of the best we have ever encountered. Top notch service and the food was, as always, delicious. Evan and the food are the only reasons this is a 4-star rating instead of 1 star. And but for Josephine it would be a 5-star review. Thank you Evan for making our anniversary dinner special!

 (Phoenix)·Dined on September 19, 2017

I made this reservation from afar (thanks OpenTable) for my father's 85th birthday. We had a group of adults and 2 young children. We were placed in the "wine tasting" room. It was quiet and the children could move about without disturbing other diners. We could have a conversation while we had some wonderful Italian food, wine, and beer. Our waiter was available, but not "in our faces" and we could relax and visit during the entire meal.
I called the restaurant the week before to confirm our reservation, since I had made the reservation far in advance and from 2000+ miles away. Everything was ready for the big celebration.

We left. Table was cramped and wobbly. Horrible lounge singer mutilating "Moondance." No one came to greet us. Place had the ambiance of a cheap Vegas buffet. We salvaged the night and had a fantastic dinner down the road at Myrna's.

My friends and I wanted a restaurant with outdoor dining and I have to say this is the nicest outdoor dining in the area. Very comfortable and not too noisy from the traffic on 202. It's landscaped beautifully and set up like you are in the tropics. Food was excellent and we were not rushed at all during the evening. Great wait staff too!

Excellent restaurant. The food was very Northern Italian, good portions, and tasty. The ambience was particularly like the feel of a real Italian restaurant. Prices were reasonable. The patio is particularly beautiful. Service was friendly and the staff is personally friendly.

Very disappointing. Very understaffed. Menu has changed. Pasta dishes are just that.... pasta..... nothing special. Seafood and meat selections also changed. Most of our favorite dishes were no longer on the menu. Seating very tight, frequently bumped by servers carrying trays of hot food. The main dining room has too much traffic.... gives me agita.

Great Italian food, homemade gnocchi and osso buco were very good. Burrata bruschetta appetizer was very fresh, and nice presentation. Lively, busy dining room, but still able to hold a conversation with friends. Plenty of parking available. Reservations are definitely recommended!

We were very disappointed in our visit to Bacco's on Saturday evening, 05-13-2017.
After we were escorted to our table, which was next to the bottom of a staircase, in a space so tight we constantly had to move so people could get by, and we were handed special menus for Mothers Day. Had we known this ahead of time, at the beginning of the reservation process, we would not have chosen Bacco's. The menu was very limited, and EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. We were asked if we wanted to leave but by that time we would have had problems getting a reservation somewhere else at that, or a reasonable, time. One of our entree selections was "Nona's Lasagna" with one meatball. The lasagna was nothing more lasagna noodles stuffed with very dry, very bland "ricotta" cheese, and one not very flavorful meatball. There was hardly any sauce. The price for this entree was $19.
Our other entree, Shrimp Francaise, was equally disappointing. The shrimp were soggy and had very little sauce over a large dish of pasta.
We used to dine at Bacco's on a regular basis before the construction on US202 made it very difficult to enter and exit the parking lot. We wanted to go back to try their regular menu but it was not available, even though it WAS NOT Mother's Day.
We wpon't be going back.
