This is my favorite restaurant in the area. The eggplant parm melts in your mouth.

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.

First time dining here. Very noisy, but enjoyed the company. Service was good, but it took quite a while for our main course to arrive. Everyone enjoyed their meal from eggplant and chicken parmesan to canneloni de mare.

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.

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!

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.
