"When you pull back the curtain at the door of Bacco, you enter into a decidedly Italian world. Since it opened in 1993, Chef Vincenzo Cucco has been turning out delicious food, some of the best made to order risotto, pastas, etc. In all, Bacco is a top neighborhood restaurant and truly offers a meal to savor." -Michael Bauer, S.F Chronicle restaurant critic

We would like to welcome our new Chef Bobby Nasser to the Bacco family. With over 30 years of culinary experience starting in Italy to his latest venture at the Fairmount Royal York Hotel in Toronto Canada.

Food & service were terrific. Sadly the noise level is very high,especially when it is full or nearly full.

We had a delicious meal, everything was perfect, especially the homemade pasta. The wine the waiter suggested was also a hit. We don't get many chances to dine out without our baby and it felt special and romantic.

We brought some out-of-town visitors to Bacco and they declared it their best dinner in the city so far! The service was warm, friendly, and knowledgeable about the food & wine. We also very much appreciated the kindness of the complimentary taste of Port to end our feast.

Excellent food. Finely prepared. Adequate service but (on a Friday night) rushed because restaurant was full and busy. Good location. Relatively easy parking. High noise level when full

Waiter didn't know menu and after returning from kitchen he still didn't have an explanation for sauce. Way Too noisy to hear anyone. Got one small pat of butter for four of us. Had to ask for more butter and bread. Couldn't find waiter for check. Seated near door and was very very cold. Both table and chairs rocked. Bathroom musty with dead plant. Not enough room on table. It was my friends birthday, I was embarrassed to have taken her there.

This is a wonderful local restaurant. The food is excellent; interesting Italian cuisine, not just the standard rigatoni/ spaghetti dishes. Eggplant mousse with burrata was superb! Very nice ambiance and friendly, helpful staff willing to talk about the composition of the dishes.

Bacco's is warm and friendly…..The owners and staff make you feel completely at home (sort of like going home for dinner). The ambience is perfect for experiencing the delicious/fabulous food that they serve with special attention to presentation….It's a restaurant that makes you feel completely at home….I would go back often…..

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
