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.

My wife and I ate here recently with my uncle and aunt. I had not been since Bacco's changed ownership. The food was excellent. Seafood was fresh - the calamari was not tough, and the sauce on the Mussels Fra Diavolo was sublime. Salads were well dressed, and all of our entree's were excellent. I was particularly pleased by my... More

We dropped in on a Saturday night after arriving in town. The owner offered to clear a table for us if we could wait a moment. From that friendly greeting to the great service to the classic Italian dishes felt like a little slice of Italy in the heart of Rochester. The bread was made fresh and still warm in... More

We called for a reservation at 5pm on a Saturday and was accommodated by the owner with grace. Getting a table for dinner for 4 at the last minute is almost impossible, but we were in luck. The Ristorante in easy to get to, has parking in the back, and is casual elegance and fine food. Our Server was helpful... More

My boyfriend and I visited this restaurant for dinner last month, on the advice of other reviews on TripAdvisor. We wanted to try another restaurant that night but it was closed for vacation so we ended up at Bacco's. We were pleasantly greeted by waiter and owner. My boyfriend ordered the lasagna and I ordered the Veal Milanese. The veal... More

Starting with the warm greeting by Giovavanni, we felt we had chosen a special place for a dinner while visiting RIT for graduation weekend. The restaurant is located in a decent neighborhood, in an old renovated house. There are only about 12 tables, so there's a feeling that you're visiting old friends for dinner. For those wanting atmosphere, this place... More

We stayed at a nearby hotel and were too tired to drive so we looked for a local restaurant within walking distance.Upon arrival, we were a little apprehensive as it was in an older house. Warmly greeted by owner and his wife (who waited the tables). Excellent neighborhood Italian restaurant. Good wine choices at affordable prices. Don't second guess yourselves,... More

We live in Rochester, so it's not the same as visiting 'new' places, but this is a restaurant that we return again, and again to. The food is wonderful, Italian, yes, but more of a northern flair, and while there IS pasta, my favorites are actually the veal dishes or the seafood. We love it becuase it is equally appropriate...
