Armando never disappoints. The food as always was incredible but it's the service the way that Armando and his staff make us feel at home that keeps her coming back. This is our date night go to spot we love it

From the outstanding service to the delicious food, I can honestly say I have never had a meal as remarkable as Bacco. A chef who truly puts his all into every meal and provides his customers with nothing but the best. There is a huge difference from a chef who cooks because he has to and one who cooks because it’s his passion, Armando proves his passion in every single dish. If I could give this review more stars, I absolutely would. An unforgettable experience, will be back!!

What a great experience! When the chef comes into the room and everyone stops talking to get a glimpse of what was just put down on your table, you know it's good! I can't say enough, but I can recommend doing the "Chef's experience". So worth it.

Not pictured is the Rabbit plate. I ate it and forgot to take a picture, haha.

My daughter and I were celebrating our October birthdays. I was visiting her at University from out of state. I looked for a 5 star restaurant on Open Table, and decided on this one. The food was very hearty, generous, and authentic. I admire so much how hard this restaurant works to keep going through COVID. We had outdoor seating in a chilly evening but were kept warm by the outdoor heaters, as well as a very good glass of Chianti! A very wonderful dining experience!

The server and chef really outdid it. Artichoke salad and smoked burrata trio to start was amazing, with maybe the dressed salad I have ever had. For a main course we had braised rabbit topped with sautéed red peppers, onions, and olives/capers. Absolutely delicious. Will be back soon, drinks were seasonal martinis made perfect!

Best Italian food and wine list. Loved the authentic food and chef/owner even came to the table to day hello. Great staff and makes you instantly feel comfortable and portions are enough for lunch the next day too. If I lived locally, that would be my new “go-to”
place when craving real Italian food!

Completely authentic Neapolitan food and it is amazing every time. Such a hidden gem in federal hill area. Cacio e pepe is always a good choice as well as always getting a meat and cheese board! Even better, just let Armando choose what you are eating. You won't be disappointed!

I went to Bacco on several friends recommendations. Oh my God, we loved it! We were greeted by our, Armando, who was so friendly and knowledgeable 😊
We were checked on often but there was no need because everything, from the appetizers to dessert, was delicious. I recommend one of their charcuterie boards, and their espresso martinis!

Hands down, best new intimate, cozy, AUTHENTIC flavors of Italy, served by the perfect hosts! Thank you, everything on the menu is just right. Octopus salad with arugula...I am in heaven. Tender octopus brought in from Naples, local produce, this place is priceless and stays true to its native Italian roots. Chef Armando knows his wine very well, leave it to him to pair with your meal. Excellent, thank you!
