Top Notch!

A surprisingly excellent meal and top notch service. Even though we were the only people in the restaurant, the server was attendant and most helpful. The food was outstanding. Four of us ordered lamb pappardelle , fettuccine with meat balls, chicken cannalloni and veggie lasagna. We were each... read more

It's ok but if you are only here for a few days, many other places are better. Kind of a strange menu, be sure and look it over on the internet before going. Rarely busy and service not great.... So disappointing as its sister restaurant, Djangos, is fabulous.

This was a really good choice for dinner. Not many places around offer beef Carpaccio as an appetizer! It was excellent. The paste was really good, too. Service was excellent. I was dining alone and was soon engaged in conversation with wait staff and customers. Nice ambience, friendly people. The price was really good, too.

The first night we tried to visit, we were turned away because we didn't have a reservation and they hadn't gotten their food delivery. So we made reservations for dinner the next night and returned. Despite our reservation, our service was extremely slow. The waitress brought out my brother's entree at least 30 minutes before the rest of our party's... More

We had only one night for dinner in CB and the husbands chose Bacchanale. We were given 7pm reservations; the place was full with earlier diners already finishing their meals when we arrived. Cocktail list was creative and fun, with negronis, champagne, and a special bourbon option. We shared the eggplant and meatballs for appetizers, and ordered the stuffed manicotti,... More

We had intended for several years to try this place and can't believe we waited so long. Food was delicious, wine and drink menu were expansive and the service was great. I tried an assortment of items but my favorite was the BYOB (build your own bruschetta). Great place for large groups (there are not very many good large group... More

Really enjoy this restaurant, the food is very good, service friendly and prices reasonable for a tourist town. Appetizers were great, although the grilled Caesar salad lacked oomph. The mains were ample in size and delicious. We wouldn't call the food gourmet but rather extremely good everyday Italian fare, comforting and satisfying. Can be a little noisy, if that bothers...

Ate here with family, they were very accommodating to a party of 7. The menu really does have something for everyone from pizza to steak. The appetizers we ordered were a bit greasy, and could have used more flavor. The special pizza was pretty good. The one dish that was really not good was the fettuccine. It was slathered in...
