We opted for the Chef’s tasting menu. It was incredible. The service was superb, the chef was delightful, and the food was excellent. It was a generous amount of food. I will have several wonderful meals with the leftovers.

I just found Bacco, and I’m always in the Hill. They opened just last year. I met Armando, and found out he’s good friends & partners with Umberto from Enoteca, which I’ve been and was great!

He sat outside next to us and talked to us, everybody was so friendly, and the food was amazing. I’ve been to Italy and I’m Italian, when I’m eating dishes that taste like my grandmother ‘s, that pretty much says it all.

See you soon Armando! Grazie, Ciao!

It is small with a nice size outside patio that is heated. We had the Bruschetta trio for an appetizer and it was fantastic. Our entrees were lasagne and braciole over polenta. The portions were large as we had another dinner at home from takeout. The lasagne was packed with meat and flavorful. The braciole was delicious and tender. The marinara sauce tasted homemade. The only negative was the polenta which lacked flavor.

I would go back..

Amazing Culinary Experience!!! Anyone looking to enjoy an absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish must try Bacco Vino & Contorni on Federal Hill. We opted for the Armando experience which was a 5 course blind offering along with a wine pairing for me! OMG this place was fabulous! We cannot wait to go back!!!!

Extremely disappointed. Overrated place. The signature cacio de pepe was just plain bad - gummy, separated sauce, not truffle forward in the least, served in a soggy “cheese” basket. The polenta? Cold and like a brick. There are many other authentic Italian dining experiences in RI, even Providence ... this was not one of them. Save your cash or go elsewhere. I haven’t been this disappointed in a dining experience in a LONG time.

Truly an EXPERIENCE. Have not had italian food this authentic since being in Italy. We're going to do "the Armando Experience" next time, where the head chef and owner curates four to five courses for you. Amazing! :)

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.
