Had not been here in a few years, forgot how good it was, veal with side of penne bolongese
Osso Bucco
All the apps were great
But the waiter TONY STOLE THE SHOW , by far one of the best we ever had and we dine out often. Can’t wait to go back for the service and the food!!!

The food was good for the price we paid. Our waiter accidentally dropped half of our pizza but placed a second order that we took home no charge. The atmosphere and decor are a bit dated. I noticed another family had to be moved due to a roof leak. There were several fruit flies all around our table.

The waiter was wonderful but other than that I was very disappointed. I’ve been to Bacco and we loved it, but it’s been quite awhile. I think that’s why this last visit was such a disappointment. The food was just ok, serving size was small (3 scallops as an appetizer? I was expecting 5 or 6), they didn’t bring all the food out at the same time, the wings were really good. It was so loud our table of 8 couldn’t have a conversation and we were in a back corner. My husband found a hair in his pizza and things floating in the water. But - the waiter was fantastic, very accommodating and friendly!

We met our friend here for her birthday dinner and all the meals looked, smelled and tasted delicious. There was a problem with the wifi so they had to do things the "old fashion" way- write down the orders but our waitress explained it and didn't let it hinder our orders at all.

Even though I live a stone's throw away, this was my first time to Bacco. Won't be my last. We arrived late for our reservation, and I was a bit flustered, but the host/hostess took us to a table immediately and were really nice, especially to my mom, who is in a wheel chair. Our server was very nice and all of us really enjoyed our meal. I am always in search of a good eggplant parm and found it. My mom LOVED her seafood fra diablo, particularly the home made pasta. Due to my mom's limitations, we travel with an aide - she ordered chicken fingers and her portion was HUGE. She enjoyed a few and took the remainder home to share with her son tomorrow. Only minor feedback was that it was a bit loud and crowded, and took a little while for our server to get our drinks and take our order, but once that was done, everything arrived quickly. Thanks again to the host/hostess for honoring our reservation. I could not have imagined having to traipse somewhere else on a Saturday night.

First time here and everything was good. The Gamberi e Prociutto was cooked perfectly and the Gnocchi Primavera was tasty and plentiful. The only knock would be they were a bit light on the bacon. The Ubriaco was completely on point. Tiramisu was a large portion and the wine selection was ample. Jeff was a great server. Thanks. Wouldn't recommend.

We went here for a party of 10 and the food and the service were excellent. The waiter in particular was great, we brought our own cake and he made sure there was a heated bucket of water to put in the knife to make it easier to cut among many other extra touches - this is one of our favorite places

Food and service was very good- unfortunately it was very hot and several of us had to ask to have the air conditioners turned up. It made for a very uncomfortable birthday celebration dinner for my wife. We all left sweating.

Excellent meals were had by all 4 of us. I did make a reservation and requested a table away from the bar since 2 of our party have hearing difficulties...we were seated in the middle of the restaurant which was rather loud however they were very busy. Have eaten there many times and have always been enjoyable meals.

Our party enjoyed the specialty cocktails and some of the specials but the daily menu is also worth checking out. Never disappointed with Bacco! Will definitely be back many times.

Everything was nice. Dinner was good but took forever. Ordered two salads at the table. One with hot peppers and the other with no peppers. We received both with hot peppers. When questioning the waiter, he told me what I showed him were not hot peppers and blew it off. They were indeed very hot as they were eaten by another guest. I had to pick them all out. As a person who cannot tolerate any spicy food, that was difficult, but the waiters attitude toward it all was he didn’t care.

Great for pizza, but wasn't very impressed with the other dishes. In particular, the chicken parm fell apart when it was being cut.

This was the second time I was here. The first time was on a weekday.

I'm was thrilled by the food. I ordered the Fra Diavolo and I thought it was tasty. Bacco makes fresh pasta and the seafood was cooked perfectly. I didn't care for the Caesar salad which I shared with my friend.

The Calamari was excellent as the first time I had it.

The weekend service was quite horrible. We had server, Matt, and it really was a frustrating night as it was like pulling teeth to get the waiter to be more attentive. Our water was not filled when we finished a glass. The bill took forever to come and it took way too long for this young waiter to process my card after dinner. If it wasn't for our enjoyment of the food, I definitely would not ever want to walk into this restaurant again.

The manager or owner really needs to do something about the service and hold it to a higher expectation than just relying on the food itself.

Normally we love it here, but the poor service on this visit really put a negative effect on what is some really great food.
