Best calamari

We really enjoyed our night at Bacco's. We had read other reviews of the grilled calamari appetizer and it did not disappoint. It was outstanding. My husband also raved over his veal Bacco. I had the mussels appetizer, which was very good, although I think I'd try something else next time. The... read more

My photos don't do this meal justice! Stuffed mushrooms and calamari apps, Linguine with clams, linguine with red sauce, peppers and a plate with a chicken cutlet. Fantastic evening. Fresh homemade flavor. Top notch friendly service, cozy atmosphere. Celebrated our 31st anniversary here tonite because I was always curious about Bracco. The reviews on this site convinced us to try... More

Melenzana napolean, beef carpaccio, lights out. You will enjoy the sauces here. Lots of red meat entrees and the pasta is great.

Somebody tell me why it took 2 years to go back to this wonderful restaurant. We had an early reservation and the owner, Giovanni, greeted us warmly and directed us to our cozy table. Our server, an 8 year veteran, enticed us with many specials and knowledgeably guided us through the menu and wine selections. Wanting to try as many... More

In town for a wedding and found Bacco's on TA. Nice quaint old house, we reserved a round table for 8. The owner Giovanni greeted us at the door and stopped at our table everyone 10 mins to check on us. Several of us took advantage of the note on the bottom of the menu, "always happy to accommodate requests... More

First time visiting since new owner took over. Owner and waitress were very friendly and accommodating. Place is small, but charming and romantic. One would feel comfortable here either for a casual dinner, or a special event. Both my husband and I had the specials of the night: mine being chicken meatballs in a champagne sauce, and his seafood risotto.... More

We decided on Bacco's because of the great reviews on TripAdvisor, and we're glad we did. The service was excellent, and yes, the owner came to our table several times to check on us. I was happy to have several vegetarian selections to choose from. On top of that , the waitress told us that the chef could alter the... More
