Great Italian Food in a Comfortable Atmosphere

I was concerned as we entered Bacco's on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is in an old home on Park Ave and I feared that it would be a cramped, crowded dinner in the living room. Nope.

Bacco's is outstanding! For an authentic Italian experience this restaurant is a must!! Giovanni is spectacular & so kind, he made us feel very comfortable from the moment he greeted us. They will make you what ever you want even if it isn't on the menu. I asked about carbonara & received a very tasty dish! We also had the... More

We dined at Bacco's last night , and loved everything! Warm cozy intimate setting, superb service and delicious innovative food. The gnocchi melted in your mouth, the calamari were crisp yet tender and the eggplant meatballs were bursting with flavor. We tried a delicious appetizer special that involved shrimp and goat cheese- yummo!

Had dinner at Bacco's last night. Pleasantly surprised that they had their own parking. (in the back of the restaurant) Otherwise, parking on Park Ave can be a challenge. Quiet, warm atmosphere. Friendly, prompt service. The bread was a nice ciabatta that tasted fresh and yeasty. Delicious app. (Polenta with a gorgonzola cream sauce and shrimp) Salads were small but... More

My family took me for a birthday dinner tonight. The meal and service was very good. The only exception was the two veal dishes. The veal was tough. When cooking veal it requires a quick saute to remain tender if you return the veal to the sauce and let it sit, the meat becomes tough. Please in the future chef... More

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner at Bocco's last night! Warmly greeted by Giovanni as we walked in. Marinara was the best we've ever had! Everything was superbly delicious, homemade and authentic! Our server Kristen was exceptional! Can't wait for our next dinner date there!

My husband and I had dinner at Bacco's yesterday evening. With only thirteen tables, you definitely should make reservations. We arrived early and were seated immediately. Our server, Julie, demonstrated an amazing memory by reciting the lengthy list of dinner specials. It was a difficult decision and were were not disappointed. The fried calamari was tender and warm, served with... More

While visiting my daughter (a student at RIT) we had the pleasure of eating at Bacco's. Although we did not have a reservation, we stopped in to see if there was seating available on a record setting cold Friday evening. We were promptly greeted by an attendant and subsequently by Giovanni himself. He quickly set a table for two. We... More

My husband and I went to Baccos with a few friends in December for dinner. It is a small place, so definitely make a reservation. We started with the greens and beans, my husband and another guest at our table, both said as well as I, that they were some of the best greens and beans we have had. I... More

We dropped in without as a reservation as we walked by and it smelled delicious from the street. The service was good, the food was good and the ambiance quite pleasant.
