    Excellent service, excellent ambience. Everyone made me feel like a regular, like family. Lexi was an amazing server and recommended a great cocktail. Spencer was very informative and knowledgeable about food and answered my many questions. Excellent appetizers and salad. Pesto was heavy on the flavor. Perfect Al dente noodles. The focaccia was amazing. The Last Word Gin Cocktail, was lovely. Worth the drive from Seattle. If you’re dining alone, try as much as you can.

    This was our 3rd visit to bar bacetto but not in over a year (difficulty on my part in planning ahead and in getting reservations) This visit was for a special occasion; it was perfect! I noted there was more seating, more staff and a feeling of comfort, fun and pure joy in the restaurant. The food and drinks were outstanding. We enjoyed the energy, comaraderie with staff and other guests.... and again, the food was so delicious. Definitely will be going again.

    Outstanding dining experience. Friendly and highly competent staff, perfect food. My only less than stellar comment is about sitting in bar height chairs. That’s not my favorite. I’m glad they’ll have a four top with regular height chairs soon, but I really don’t understand why the existing two tops can’t be regular height tables also.

    We were greeted by a very enthusiastic staff & immediately seated at the bar with our party of 4. Our server suggested everything served family style. We opted for three pastas, one salad, focaccia and wine. The different pastas, we tried had excellent flavor and freshness. Wine selection small lots of high-quality Italian wines. Highly recommend making the trip to Waitsburg when you’re in the area.

    This was such a wonderful and fun restaurant. My one comment is not really a knock on the place, just something to consider. The bar seating is hard to have conversations with a group larger than 2. The place itself is pretty noisy because it’s a small restaurant where you can see, smell and hear everything. With my group of 4 we ordered two appetizers to share and 4 pastas to share. That was a great amount of food to split among the group. I also grabbed a great bottle of Montepulciano to have with dinner that was decanted for us. We plan on coming back asap!

    Didn’t realize the 4 of us would be sitting at the bar side by side…which was difficult for my elderly parents to get up on the high chairs and hard to talk and interact. That being said, food was incredible and the service immaculate. Will definitely go back but will reserve the pasta table and bring a couple more people 😊

    Food: outstanding! Seating: we were 2 minutes early and were told we had to wait in another room. Weird, because our table was open, away from the bar. On top of that, the seats are very uncomfortable. Service: spotty. We had to wait several minutes after seating before we were recognized. The server never came back to our table to refill our wine glasses. To-go boxes? Fill them yourself! And we weren't offered fresh silverware between the salad course and the entree...just pick them off the plate and hold on to them until your entree arrives. For a five-star restaurant, it's those little things that make us feel it's just a tad overrated, thus the four stars. Correct the service miscues and we'll make it a five-star rating to go with the outstanding food.

    The dining experience was amazing. If we could score more than 5 stars we would! The food was amazing; the service was amazing. This was not just a dinner out, it was an experience. The artisan cocktails were also wonderful. The only thing we would love to see would be tables to seat a group of 4. We were a group of 4 old friends. Sitting at the bar made it more difficult to visit and catch up. They only have 2 tops and the bar seating. WONDERFUL dining experience!

    I rated the noise level high on the scale, which to me means it was great. Energetic is the perfect word. Not loud, not sedate. Good cracklin' energy and activity and happy diners having a good time. (My one teeny tiny critique, and it's hardly a criticism, more of a curiosity... Kind of a short pour on the wine for $20 a glass 😉) Five stars all-around, and Henry is a rock star. Being seated at the bar is front row to all the action! We'll be back, if and when we can get a reservation. 👍🏼
