The Armando Experience was a great treat. Armando and his hostess (Danielle???) were very personable and made us feel like family even though it was our first time. But it certainly will not be our last!!!

This is a place you might not notice on your drive or walk down "the Hill" but you would be well served to stop in. The staff was excellent the food was superb. We had the "Armando Experience " served by Armando himself. Ever bite was better than the last.

Going to Bacco is like going to your friend’s house and he cooks for you the most delicious meals. Armando gives you that experience every time you eat there. It’s our go to special occasion restaurant.

From the outstanding service to the delicious food, I can honestly say I have never had a meal as remarkable as Bacco. A chef who truly puts his all into every meal and provides his customers with nothing but the best. There is a huge difference from a chef who cooks because he has to and one who cooks because it’s his passion, Armando proves his passion in every single dish. If I could give this review more stars, I absolutely would. An unforgettable experience, will be back!!

What a great experience! When the chef comes into the room and everyone stops talking to get a glimpse of what was just put down on your table, you know it's good! I can't say enough, but I can recommend doing the "Chef's experience". So worth it.

Not pictured is the Rabbit plate. I ate it and forgot to take a picture, haha.

My daughter and I were celebrating our October birthdays. I was visiting her at University from out of state. I looked for a 5 star restaurant on Open Table, and decided on this one. The food was very hearty, generous, and authentic. I admire so much how hard this restaurant works to keep going through COVID. We had outdoor seating in a chilly evening but were kept warm by the outdoor heaters, as well as a very good glass of Chianti! A very wonderful dining experience!

The server and chef really outdid it. Artichoke salad and smoked burrata trio to start was amazing, with maybe the dressed salad I have ever had. For a main course we had braised rabbit topped with sautéed red peppers, onions, and olives/capers. Absolutely delicious. Will be back soon, drinks were seasonal martinis made perfect!

Best Italian food and wine list. Loved the authentic food and chef/owner even came to the table to day hello. Great staff and makes you instantly feel comfortable and portions are enough for lunch the next day too. If I lived locally, that would be my new “go-to”

Completely authentic Neapolitan food and it is amazing every time. Such a hidden gem in federal hill area. Cacio e pepe is always a good choice as well as always getting a meat and cheese board! Even better, just let Armando choose what you are eating. You won't be disappointed!
