Nice little casual Italian dining place with great food. The place is not huge..there are mostly booths and it is located in the middle of a strip mall. They have great calzones...I especially love their spinach calzone. They have great cream of crab soup, delicious chicken Chesapeake and my husband loves their sausage & peppers.

We used to live right down the street and it used to be our Friday night place to go. Portions are enough for two meals and very reasonable. The garlic knots are to die for!!

This is our favorite Italian food. We often get the specials and have tried many of the entrees. It is a hidden gem for casual Italian food. Give it a try! We have had the Calzones ... Spaghetti.... Bruschetta..... Pizza..... Meatballs. Tonight we had tortellini in Alfredo sauce with Italian sausage and roasted red peppers. The cream of crab soup... More

My wife and I have been here only a few times. Each time has been a good one. Good food, good friendly and speedy service. Certainly a nice place to go out to eat.

This is definitely our go to restaurant when we want a good italian meal. The Chicken Chesapeake dinner is to die for and if you go on Satuday it's onlt $12.99!! Regular price is $19.99 but for what you get it's definitely worth it. 2 plump chicken breasts, shrimp and lump crab meat with a sauce that leaves you wanting... More

I'll keep this simple. This place doesn't make anything that isn't good. The prices are very reasonable, and the scenery and atmosphere is very laid back. If you are in the area and hungry for italian food (dine in or carry out), I would definitely check this place out (I wouldn't waste your time at Pizza John's, although everyone in... More

If you're looking for tasty Italian food in the Essex/Middle River area, IMHO this is your best bet. As much as I love the nearby community stalwart Pizza Johns, I think the food at Bacoli's is simply tastier. It's also more relaxing as it's more of a traditional style restaurant versus Pizza John's somewhat chaotic and noisier cafeteria style. Although... More

My husband & I had the Shrimp Marinara, it was excellent, The serving size was perfect, the shrimp were large and the sauce just right, they give you fresh hot homebaked Italian bread and a refillable softdrink. Good meal for the money, service has always been attentive. Never had a bad meal or poor service there.

Our bicycle club (casual riders, mostly seniors), stopped in for lunch one weekday. We all liked what we got and we got more then we could finish. For twelve people, to all like it, that's saying a lot. In fact we've been bugging the leader to take us back.
