This was my first time dining at Bacco, and the night was good enough for Bacco to be added to our special occasion restaurant roster. I had tagged my reservation as celebrating a birthday (my boyfriend’s), and he was wished a happy birthday at the host stand before we were even seated. We liked the Bacco sausage appetizer and the Italian salad; my boyfriend found the shaved Brussels sprouts salad sweeter than he would’ve preferred. I liked my fettuccine Margherita; my boyfriend liked his tagliatelle bolognese slightly less. We had the zeppoli and gelato for dessert—both were delicious, especially the honey gelato. My boyfriend also received a tiny creme brûlée birthday dessert (with no embarrassing pomp or circumstance, just a subtly lit candle). We’ll be back!

Expensive, but if you like the best in Italian food this is the place to go. Everything tastes home made, nothing out of a box.

Waited so long for a server, had to go to the Hostess stand to ask her to send someone. Finally got our cocktails, had to search for waiter to place order, then--the final insult--had to seek out someone for our check. Were they under-staffed, waiter had too many tables???
My friend's entree (veal) was outstanding. Mine (chicken) was just so-so.

This is a great restaurant. Food is always amazing and mouth watering!!! Parmesan cheese pieces and bread are so good with a glass of Italian wine. Then you have to try the pasta and then end with an incredible fish entree. Service is amazing, food delicious and atmosphere is perfect for a quiet night. Love this place!!

The food was spectacular. The service was impeccable. John was a fabulous server and was very helpful. A touch on the noisy side. Only glitch was that they were unable to use my OpenTable voucher. They indicated they had the issue previously and OpenTable told them it was resolved.

One of our favorite restaurants. Service is always attentive and the menu has enough variety while not trying to overwhelm you.

I was served the wrong entree and watched my friend eat while I waited for the right entree to come out. We were not compensated for essentially eating alone.

My guest arrived and they told her I wasn’t there when I had been for fifteen minutes and alerted the hostess I was waiting fir a guest. They had her sit in the bar then finally went to seat her when she saw I was already there. We both had the special and our meals were really poorly plated, looked awful and did not taste good. The service was terrible throughout the meal and I couldn’t understand the heavy accent of the waitress. Finally, I had to ask several times for the check when I needed to leave. Bacco used to be my favorite local restaurant but I was extremely disappointed and embarrassed entertaining my client.

Not nearly as good as it used to be! Food average at best. Veal over cooked and extremely tough. Service was good. Ambiance fair. Limited menu choices which may not appeal to all. There are much nicer Italian restaurants around the area with better atmosphere, better food, and better menu options.

We have been to Bacco several times this summer and each time our meals are as delicious as our first. Everything, especially the pasta dishes, are so fresh and the portion sizes are perfect. This time we brought family and friends to share the experience. Everyone loved it!

For the first time in our many visits to Bacco, the food was not perfect. I chose the octopus which has always been great before, but today was barely edible--burnt rather than charred and chewy to the point of being difficult to cut with steak knife. The rest of the presentation was fine.

The waiter was more distracted than usual but the rest of the staff was as wonderful as always. Given it was the first time the evening wasn't perfect we will definitely return.

Stephane was a busy bee this day. Perhaps the restaurant was a bit short on staff this particular Thursday afternoon, however she took care of our experience nonetheless.
We ordered off the $29 two course meal special, since frankly it’s great, especially since it also includes a nice red or white wine of their choice. We were very pleased with our choices.
