Armando Experience$65.00 per person
Multiple dates available4-5 Course blind dining experience prepared by Chef and owner Armando Bisceglia, featuring his favorite family dishes. Wine not included.
The most delicious and true authentic Italian cuisine around.
Phenomenal experience. Down to earth, rustic Italian feel. Chefs and waiters running around felt like I was at a high end family style dinner. Staff couldn’t have been more fun to be around and the wine was to die for. Recommended by the owner off the top of his head and paired perfectly with the meal. 10/10 would recommend for an experience and will be coming back very soon
Amazing food and super service
Sat down at 7:30 and didn’t get our food until 9:40!!
We opted for the Chef’s tasting menu. It was incredible. The service was superb, the chef was delightful, and the food was excellent. It was a generous amount of food. I will have several wonderful meals with the leftovers.
I just found Bacco, and I’m always in the Hill. They opened just last year. I met Armando, and found out he’s good friends & partners with Umberto from Enoteca, which I’ve been and was great!
He sat outside next to us and talked to us, everybody was so friendly, and the food was amazing. I’ve been to Italy and I’m Italian, when I’m eating dishes that taste like my grandmother ‘s, that pretty much says it all.
See you soon Armando! Grazie, Ciao!
The food and service were great. You could feel the love they put into everything. Very accommodating. Menu is small but authentically Italian
Best spot on the hill!
Danielle, out server, was friendly yet professional. It was a great experience and I look forward to going back again soon!
The Cacio e Peppe Taruffo was outstanding. Waiter knew the menu and described it fully. Rest of meal was excellent too. You have to try this place.
It is small with a nice size outside patio that is heated. We had the Bruschetta trio for an appetizer and it was fantastic. Our entrees were lasagne and braciole over polenta. The portions were large as we had another dinner at home from takeout. The lasagne was packed with meat and flavorful. The braciole was delicious and tender. The marinara sauce tasted homemade. The only negative was the polenta which lacked flavor.
I would go back..
Even with Armando’s absence they continue his high quality in all aspects of the dining experience. Hoping for a sound recovery.
The food was amazing as was the service. We are definitely coming back!
Food was amazing!!
Another great experience at Bacco. Wonderful food, great service and the perfect date night.
Excellent service and food. Highly recommended
Dinner was chefs special five course dinner all five courses were exceptional but the pork chop was a bit tough. Nothing the chef can help. Service was incredible. Definitely coming back
Food, staff, & service was phenomenal! We will definitely be back! ...especially for the blind taste courses!
Amazing Culinary Experience!!! Anyone looking to enjoy an absolutely fantastic meal from start to finish must try Bacco Vino & Contorni on Federal Hill. We opted for the Armando experience which was a 5 course blind offering along with a wine pairing for me! OMG this place was fabulous! We cannot wait to go back!!!!
Incredible specials, Italian wine, no rush, pure delectable experience ... loved it!!!
Extremely disappointed. Overrated place. The signature cacio de pepe was just plain bad - gummy, separated sauce, not truffle forward in the least, served in a soggy “cheese” basket. The polenta? Cold and like a brick. There are many other authentic Italian dining experiences in RI, even Providence ... this was not one of them. Save your cash or go elsewhere. I haven’t been this disappointed in a dining experience in a LONG time.
Amazing food made by people who obviously love what they do.
We went for our Anniversary dinner and could not have been more pleased! Everything was PERFECT!
Authentic southern Italian peasant food at fine dining prices
Excellent experience amazing food I felt like I was in Armando’s backyard being being served a five course meal he prepared him self corse by corse and made accommodates for a food allegory the Armando experiences truly the best blind dining experience in Rhode Island and he truly treats all of his guests like family.
Truly an EXPERIENCE. Have not had italian food this authentic since being in Italy. We're going to do "the Armando Experience" next time, where the head chef and owner curates four to five courses for you. Amazing! :)
Absolutely wonderful experience! Armando and everyone at the restaurant were fantastic. You will be blown away by the food and service. Small, intimate place brimming with personality.
A wonderful Italian food/wine experience in Providence! Cannot wait for a return visit!
outstanding food and the service was awesome. I would highly recommend this restaurant
One of if not the best dining experience in RI
Outstanding dinner on Valentine’s Day!
Chef Armando took care of us! Food was delicious and we will be back.
The Armando Experience was a great treat. Armando and his hostess (Danielle???) were very personable and made us feel like family even though it was our first time. But it certainly will not be our last!!!
This is a place you might not notice on your drive or walk down "the Hill" but you would be well served to stop in. The staff was excellent the food was superb. We had the "Armando Experience " served by Armando himself. Ever bite was better than the last.
Wonderful experience. I tell allnof my friends and family to go there
Going to Bacco is like going to your friend’s house and he cooks for you the most delicious meals. Armando gives you that experience every time you eat there. It’s our go to special occasion restaurant.
Great food! Great service!
A little pricey though
Personalized service, fresh, perfectly cooked food, generous portions. Always a unique dish or two.
Good food. Owner was very present and made us feel “at hime”!
