Took my kids (11 and 7) here for a Saturday dinner out, they were perfectly quiet and well-behaved, nicely dressed. Waiter looked at us like we were aliens. Forgot our olive appetizer. Cheap pour on the glass of wine. The calamari in the squid ink pasta was overcooked and not spicy at all, as advertised. Kids liked the meatballs, which was a plus. But $14 for plain pasta with butter. Sheesh. I get that you think you're too cool for kids, but you're not. You're a mediocre neighborhood pasta place. Get over yourselves. Next time we go to Lupo.
Food was not served as hot and there was a bit of a wait for the check after our table was cleared.
The prix-fixe menu for Valentine's Day was great. Reasonably priced at $65. We had a nice quiet table in a corner by a window. Helpful, friendly staff.
Wonderful service. Mario was amazing! The food was all excellent and the wine exquisite.
I eat vegan because of health concerns. At the end of a long week, I wanted my boyfriend to have a meal I knew he would enjoy -- Italian. But as vegans know, Italian food is traditionally not vegan. In spite of this, Bacco made a pasta off the menu with roasted garlic and vegetables, and it was delicious. I also had the orange salad.
We were seated right by the door, so as new groups came in and were waiting to be seated, they mingled right next to and behind me. It was quite distracting especially with the group of 8 that was hanging there for 10 minutes. We made the reservation a week in advance so I thought we would get a nice spot. There was a 4-person table left free that was more sheltered from the storm of ppl at the front door, but that must be reserved for a larger group, I thought- or else they would have sat us there. I was annoyed that the the next couple through the door was sat at the 4 person table.
The wine that the server recommended was mediocre. It was the priciest in the Super Tuscan category, the category I had said I was interested in.
However, the food was the saving grace - it was great. Lasagna with béchamel sauce, octopus salad, meatballs- all excellent. Only complaint was that the meatballs could have been larger.
All the staff were very friendly. Had agood dinner. Happy with my veggie pasta entree. Nice neighborhood spot.
Great for sharing. The only way I know to be able to handle all the excellent available courses (it IS Italian, after all).
Hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle.
Great food. Comfortable and warm dining area. Great place for meeting friends.
Bacco is our family's favorite restaurant in San Francisco. It has NEVER disappointed us. The food is consistently outstanding and interesting also. It seems that everyone whom we bring there becomes a devoted customer as well. The owner is gracious, hard-working, and very welcoming. Cannot wait to go back again.
An excellent Italian restaurant in Noe Valley. It's easy to enjoy a relaxing meal here. The ambience is pleasant, the food is good, the staff is friendly, and parking is no problem.
Have enjoyed Bacco for many years. Although I no longer live in the neighborhood, it is worth the effort. Parking is tricky but there are two parking lots located on 24th street.
Great food, friendly service. Perfect spot for our New Year's Eve dinner!
Food was very average
We love Bacco and come here every December when we are in town. Service is great and meal always a delight!
The food is always great here and the staff is always friendly.
The grilled whole branzino was terrific. All the food was impressive except for the dessert - lemon meringue tart fell flat and the pastry was very tough. But overall it was (as always at Bacco) a very nice dining experience.
We had a wonderful executive group dinner at Bacco Ristorante. The staff was great and attentive, the owner was with us the entire time and was very welcoming as well. I love that she's been the owner for 20+ years and really likes the neighborhood. It was a welcoming change to the busy and very business-oriented restaurants we have around us on the peninsula. I want to bring my family here now!
