    The server and the chef were cleaning the restaurant when we arrived. They were very untidy and their clothes full of stains. We were thinking of leaving the restaurant but decided against it just to give them a chance. They charged us for the complimentary drinks too 😊

    BacioResponded 1 day agoDear Farzaneh Poorjabar, As the owner I take full responsibility for your inconvenience Sorry you caught me in my cleaning chothes, I changed before service. I too was upset that our dinning room was not set up in time. We at Bacio strive to offer our guest the finest service. my fault that we charged you for the gifted drinks. Please accepted a gift certificate as an chance to earn your confidence. It was my pleasure meeting you, husband and son . Please email baciomenu@gmail c Jay Saponaro

    One of just 2 tables occupied on a Wednesday evening so they asked us to finish because they were closing - at 8:40pm. We were enjoying a conversation, ordered dessert, were still drinking wine, so this seemed rude to me. Food was OK, though a warm vegetable appetizer clearly had just come out of the refrigerator as portions were still cold.

He topped off a perfect evening when he personally stopped by our table to ensure our complete satisfaction. We have been coming to Bagcio for years and love it every time!

    We, a party of 5, were celebrating my daughter's 53rd birthday. She lived in Italy (near Napoli) for over 4 years so she is a good judge of Italian food. She highly complemented the food. Everything was delicious. The server followed my on-line instructions to bring her a cannoli with a candle for dessert. Thank you so very much for a perfect celebration.

    BacioResponded on April 17, 2022I am so happy we could rekindle some of your Italian memories. Our roots are rich in Napoli. Thank you for taking the time to give us your review.

    I was so looking forward to trying Bacio for the first time. Unfortunately, it will also be our last. It was very slow to get our food and when we did half of the table got their apps and the other table waited another 15 minutes for theirs. The soup was cold and the mussel appetizer was incorrect. The main dishes, though tasty, took way to long to get and were served luke warm. I understand that we are still in the midst of dealing with covid and being short-staffed, but if you can't handle the number of table at the restaurant take less reservations.

    Food was great but the wait for the food was very long. Our food did not arrive until 80 mins after we sat down. All the help was very active and pleasant.

    BacioResponded on March 6, 2022Thank you for your kind review. Your review regarding time is very important to share. It is important for our custmers to understand our kitchen is very old and small. Saturday at 7pm is not the most romantic time for dinning out. Your opentable reservation was 6:46. Our computer has the waiter took your order at 7:06, food was served 8:11 you paid the billed at 8:34. We really wish we could be quicker, however. offering homemade delish food is our first priority.

    Was our first time there, service was slow but understandable for a busy weekend and had to ask for water/drinks several times. Food was okay, but not fantastic. What was a little off putting was the older couple seated right behind our table was arguing loudly about their relationship/dating and about other adult topics which made for an uncomfortable experience with my teen children, not that it was the restaurants fault but the space we were in was a small back room. I don't think we will be returning.

    The food and ambiance are way above just a neighborhood restaurant. The service while polite and gracious was a bit slow. I especially recommend the antipasto, very delicious and varied, and any chicken dish. I can’t remember having chicken so tender and moist no matter whether in a picante sauce or parmigiana. Highly recommend Bacio.

    Dined here many times. Food quality is still very good. I had the veal chop special and it was excellent. Cooked medium/medium rare and was very flavorful. My wife had the crab bucatini, and there was a large portion of crab in it. Finished with espresso and a limoncello dessert. The service was a bit slower than previous times. But, when they make the dish fresh, I guess this is to be expected.

    We waited an entire hour before anyone even approached the table. When we asked to order, the server said “no,” and it was “not his table.” We don’t even know WHO our server was because we had to flag someone down and ask for anything we needed. Waited almost two hours before getting the meals, which looked like dog food. I did not receive what I ordered. I had ordered crab and linguine. And received something with clams? My husband and I had been drinking espresso martinis and old fashioneds. I wanted to order a lemon drop martini (which was clearly listed as the first cocktail on the menu) and was told no, they didn’t have the ingredients. Apparently they got tired of making them, because we overheard them telling other tables that they were “out of martinis, old fashioneds, and limoncello.” This was the worst restaurant experience I’ve had in a very long time. As someone who worked for half my life in the service industry, I understand the value of a good tip. But I also understand it must be earned. This was the first time in my life I can say I left a zero dollar tip…..and I don’t even feel badly about it. Stay far far away from this restaurant. Olive Garden would’ve been better.

    Beautifully decorated for NYE. Great food and service. My only complaint was the music being played - disco. I guess they wanted a party atmosphere but we (including a couple at another table) would have preferred something a bit more mellow.
