So we love Bacco's and took a guest there. We love our favorite waiter Anthony! he is the best!!! This time we decided to try the trio appetizer of Bruschetta, Calamari, and Clams Casino. Probably won't ever get that again. The bruschetta was burnt, the Calamari was tough and just lukewarm, and the Clams Casino were mushy and only lukewarm also. However, the Positano was spectacular as always, and the Veal Parmigiana and The Ravioli special were awesome too. And the bread pudding dessert was sooooo yummy, will definitely try that again. Bacco's, we'll be baaaaack!!!!!

Food was great but took a tag too long. No issue though because we weren't in a hurry. I did however take issue with the not-so friendly hostess. She didn't even walk us to our table. She pointed and said "that's your table over there with the menus on it".

Food was excellent and the serving size was larger than expected. I wasn't pleased with the service we got from our waiter. Especially, after he told me it wasn't his job to get a to go box for our untouched portions of our dinner. He also never asked to refill our drinks asked if we wanted more wine. We turned down the offer of dessert because we didnt want to experience the waiters rudeness anymore. I would recommend the restaurant but advise getting food to go..

Always a treat to go to this restaurant. The food is amazing and service is great too. On Saturday nights, it is quite crowded so I think the serving staff faces challenges getting to everyone as quickly as they want. Can't complain though because they are always attentive and warm. One of our favorite restaurants

We enjoyed our first time at Bacco, however the service was not at the caliber I would expect for what we paid. We had a party of 6 and the waitress was slow to get the second round of drinks. When the food was brought to the table one person was waiting for their pizza. The waitress said it was ready and would bring it right away. I then watched her help the manager move around tables and go to another table before bringing him his pizza.

We were there with a party of Six on Friday evening Masimo was our waiter. He was fantastic. Knowledgeable and friendly. Attentive and responsive. My complaint is the loudness of the band. We were on the other side of the restaurant and could barely have a conversation. Terrible for a nice restaurant.

We enjoy going to Bacco’s. In fact we have a favorite table. This visit was a dinner celebrating our anniversary. My husband had the red snapper and really enjoyed it. I had Chicken Parmesan which was also delicious. The food is always very good and great service as well.

The food was amazing and the price was very reasonable. I got the prime rib special and it was perfectly done. I can honestly say the steak was better than some steak houses I've been to, though it was very fatty. The service was a bit slow as we were there later in the evening and the staff was wrapping things up for the evening, but my glass was never empty and I had everything I needed throughout the night. Great birthday dinner date

Service was very slow on this night, and there was live music at 7:30 which was so loud it was hard to talk among our table of 4. This was our first visit, and it was ok, but not as good as what we were hoping after reading all of the glowing reviews. We may go back and try it again, but not on a night with live music. The music was nice, just way too loud. It made it feel like we were dining at a crazy busy bar rather than a nice restaurant. Overall, we were disappointed.

We were sitting amongst a few large parties and could not hold a conversation without yelling. We ordered fried calamari and zucchini. Had trouble eating it since it was fried up to a crisp.
My dinner tasted good.

Bacco is our neighborhood go-to! The food is always tasty and plentiful . They professionally dealt with a diners medical emergency with compassion and class -making sure the meals the ordered were packed to go - at no charge when they left . I like seeing a business run with kindness!

I think this might be my last dinner at Bacco. I made a last minute late evening reservation and when I arrived, I stood at the host/hostess stand for almost five minutes before anyone arrived/acknowledged me. The restaurant was quite full for a Thursday night (I guess there were a lot of holiday gatherings), but at least two waiters walked by me and made no effort to acknowledge me or find anyone. When the host finally came, he scanned the room for a table and when it didn't look like he was going to find anything, I just said I'd sit at the bar. Service there was not great - I really wanted salt & pepper and some parmesan cheese for my meal, but the server was no where to be found, so I just went without. House salad was not worth $6. There was barely any taste to the dressing. Eggplant parm was not as good as I remembered - too much sauce. I asked for it without the ricotta which seemed like an issue, but did get it that way - perhaps I need to add it back. All-in-all, this visit was not worth the time or money.

Horrible service wait staff is clueless I watched the food runner walk around my my meals approaching many tables except mine. Tried to tell him it belonged to us !
Waiters moved a chair and a high chair legs down right across our table which had our food and drinks on it. So gross

We’ve eaten at Bacco on various special occasions over a number of years. The atmosphere is rather rustic and shows the Italian influence. Most non pasta entrees do not come with pasta, but the vegetables are very good. The meals are reasonably priced vs. so-called upscale restaurants which are often very overpriced. The wait help does a great job providing attentive service. The restaurant can tend to be a little noisy as there always seems to be a big crowd. Drinks were well made and fairly priced. We’ll continue to eat at Bacco on various occasions.

The food was fabulous. Homemade pasta tasted truly homemade. Fresh ingredients for the salads, and great wine.
Newer server was a little inexperienced but very friendly!
