    The selection of food was great, along with the wine. Mixed drinks were alright, not the best I’ve had. The food came out fast and was awesome. We made a reservation and when we arrived we had no wait. We will for sure be returning.

    Our server, Kari, was very responsive. Pasta dishes should come with a "twirling" spoon. Noise level made quiet conversation difficult. The space for an aisle leading to our booth was very tight which caused bumping into other patrons as we exited and they dined.

    Good things happen at Bacco. The best patio and courtyard in town for nice weather and a great staff. Today Aaliyah, Becca and Mel all contributed to a great meal. I recommend any of their paninis or flatbreads, but their pastas and seafood dishes are also excellent! And brunch is back, so don’t skip Sundays for one of the more unique brunch menus around. Bravo, Bacco!

    Wow wow wow. The Easter menu just rolled out and myself and guests got to try a lot of the new drinks including flights, mixed drinks and the new mimosas! Our server/ bartender Allen did an absolutely amazing job with the service provided recommendations throughout the whole meal and made sure our glasses were filled. Not to mention he also takes great pictures so get one by the wine wall of you can. His service was impeccable all around and a hi from Steve is always great. My party and I will be back real soon!

    Lunch at Bacco! What to choose? There’s so much that’s buono… I recommend the mussels, all of the paninis and flatbreads and pretty much every pasta. Oh, and the cheese and meat boards are good too. Our favorite half priced wine on Wednesdays is currently the Skye bubbly sauv blanc (more like a vinho verde than a full on champagne). Servers Becca and Sydney took excellent care of us and Mel at the bar always adds a cheerful note to lunch. A very well run and consistent gem! Bravo Bacco!

    Great lunch again! Server Ali was back (that was awesome) and Becca and Bar Manager Mel (thanks for the wine recco's) made it lots of fun. Try the fettuccini zafferano or the braised short rib ravioli. This place is always clean, well run and consistent with menu items. Neighborhood gem! We love Bacco!

    There’s no excuse for not having a good time at Bacco… the food and service are consistently great! Today was no exception; try any of the flatbreads or the gnocchi. Try the panini, try the penne vodka! Servers Aasia and Becca were on point and manager Nayai is always charming! You can’t go wrong at Bacco!

    Another enjoyable lunch at Bacco… Lindsay and Becca both took good care of us, and the food was as good as always. Try the gnocchi or the new tenderloin panini, both are excellent! The wine list is full of good selections and at half price on Wednesdays its a bargain! If you need a quick lunch, try Bacco Pizzaria across the street. Viva Bacco!

    I made our reservations like 2 weeks in advance but we still got placed in their cramped outside seating. The bread was burnt. The food was okay. My chicken breast was kind of dry and couldnt even notice the crab in my dish. We used to really like this place but I think it's time to move on.

    Wednesdays at Bacco... half price bottles of wine from a very good selection of wines, crazy good happy hour starting at 2:30 and an all-around great experience. Servers Aasia, Sierra and Becca all took great care of us. GM Steve came to the table with a sample of Falanghina (think Chardonnay's little brother). Un-oaked and a bit more interesting than most Pinot Grigios. Try it! Everything went well with the Marcello flatbread. Great service, great food, great wine. Bravo Bacco!

    We went on a Wednesday for my husband's birthday..but found out it was wine night. So instead of ordering 2 glasses, we bought a bottle at 50% off, costing less than the 2 glasses would have cost. Score! The food was divine and the service was attentive without being intrusive. Just about perfect. Too full to order dessert, our waitress brought a huge strawberry covered in real whipped cream with a huge sparkler, and sang happy birthday. A lovely night.
