We ordered a cheese board as a starter, they forgot to bring out the fig jam with it. It would been nice for them to point out which cheese is which when they brought the board to our table. My wife got the scallops in the saffron risotto, she did like that. I ordered the filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus, the filet was over cooked (ordered it medium), but was flavorful. The mashed potatoes were cold. My wife ordered the tiramisu as dessert and enjoyed it, I ordered the chocolate lava cake, there was no chocolate lava inside, it was just a moist microwaved chocolate cake. Our son got the kids cheese pizza, which was an entire cheese pizza flatbread which he enjoyed for the next two days, and ordered chocolate gelato for dessert which he also enjoyed. Our server was Kasey C, she was great, the food was just lacking a bit in some areas.

We had a great time at Bacco. The food was delicious and a great price for the value. We had a great rapport with our server, who also had great menu recommendations. We will definitely return to Bacco for another date night!

I’ve tried to find something I don’t like on their menu and I can’t! They really execute their menu very well. They also have the best heated outside patio in town. Server Ali and manager Alex make this our favorite Wednesday spot.

When you ask about happy hours they give you the hora but they don’t specify only one half of the restaurant has a happy hour. You don’t get happy hour prices in the main dining room and they don’t even mention it

I've been there numerous times, but price exceeds value of food. If food was good I wouldn't mind spending the money, but last night dinner the food sucked and cost was $250.00. Probably try one more time before I cut this restaurant off, only because I know they have the potential to do better. But yeah , they only get one more chance with me.

The weekly lunch at Bacco is a big highlight! We consistently enjoy the biancaneve flatbread but that is by no means the only good thing on offer. Great wine list, great staff (ask for server Ali!). Oh, and manager Alex doesn’t miss a step!

Our first time there. Decided to try for early New Years Eve dinner. Susan, our waitress was top notch, attentive, helpful without being intrusive! Calamari was lightly battered and cooked to perfection. Both veal entrees were cooked beautifully. Everything down to the decaf coffee was excellent. We will be returning for sure! Thank you for a lovely experience!

The food was excellent for all 4 of us. Service was very good. The Rhubarb Cosmo drink was pretty un drinkable and they ran out of Stella Artois
But other than that we always have a good meal and an awesome time at Bacco.

This visit was ok. The food has been better on other visits. Eggplant parm was mushy. We were not told it was 1/2 price bottle of wine night, would have liked to have known that. Overall it was just an ok visit. I have definitely had better visits to this restaurant. Hoping this was just a fluke night.

Love Bacco! High quality food and good service. I was delighted to find out they could make several dishes dairy free (which can be difficult when eating Italian). Bread is a nice touch but would love some more seasoning with olive oil. Drinks were fresh and fun! I would recommend this place to anyone.

Not as good as all previous visits but it was xmas Eve so maybe that had something to do with it. Rolls were stale, never had a waiter and finally a ‘floater’ said he’d take care of us. Food wasn’t prepared as carefully as I remembered all of my multiple other meals here. Must have been short staffed for holidays.

Cocktails and wine were very good. Bruschetta appetizer was excellent. Mains of lobster ravioli and pollo al limone were very good as well. The main of vitello ai carciofi was lacking. The veal was tough and chewy and the accompanied sauce was bland.

Very disappointing visit. We ordered the grilled octopus which was overcooked and rubbery. And several of our meals were cold in certain sections. The restaurant did quickly offer free desserts to compensate, which the manner in which it was asked leads me to believe they have to do this frequently. I will chalk it up to potential lack of kitchen staff, but I think it will be a while before I return.

This was my first time here and all my friends were raving about it. So for my birthday, I made a reservation. There are two sides to this restaurant a winebar and a dining side. We chose the dining side. For an Italian restaurant, you would have a hard time knowing that by the interior. The only thing that looked Italian was the wallpaper on one wall that had the torso of a statue holding a grape bunch. Even the music was more for the winebar side, Christmas pop. At least, have something different for the dining side.
Karrie our server was absolutely fantastic and really took care of us well. Bread = rolls. Not even Italian bread, just rolls. We started with Eggplant Torta which was fantastic. The eggplant was cooked just right and the taste was excellent. My glass of wine was Mon Amour Rose. If you like a sweet rose, and I do, this is excellent. I was looking forward to our entrees. Our main course arrived and looked great. My wife had the Filetto Rossini. A filet wrapped in prosciutto with a Barolo red wine reduction. It was cooked to perfection and very tender. I had the Linguine 7 Fishes. It looked fantastic. Squid ink linguine with clams, mussels, squid, crabmeat, shrimp, lobster tail, and scallops. The linguine was way too soft almost mush in my mouth. The clams and mussels were fine. So was the 1 scallop (the menu said scallops). The lobster tail was half a lobster tail and way overcooked as were the calamari. Lots of tentacles which I love but very few pieces of the squid's body. The tentacles were so tough (rubber almost) I couldn't eat them. As were the 2 pieces of shrimp. And no crab meat that I could find. Very, very disappointing. I was thinking about ordering the Cacciuco (Tuscan seafood stew) to go, but after the way the seafood was so overcooked in my dish, I decided not to.
Overall, a mixed review. Go for the turf and skip the surf.

Enjoyed a nice meal for a birthday celebration. Burrata salad was delicious. Fettuccine Alfredo was excellent. Veal Parmesan was overcooked and pounded too thin for my taste and side spaghetti was also overcooked and too heavily sauced. The limoncello cake was delicious. The wait staff were pleasant and efficient and the atmosphere was great. I would return to try a different dish.
