We ate here the night before the marathon. I'm not sure if they don't know how to handle reservations or it they just don't like to say no. Us and at least a couple other groups had reservations but it was at least 45 min's to an hour after the reservation time that we got seated. We weren't really... read more

Saturday night My Husband and I brought a friend to Bacco's. As soon as I gave my name the hostess gave me the phone number of another friend who had called looking for us. We are not Boston residents but visitors, the kindness of the hostess was extraordinary, facilitating a reunion with a friend that we hadn't seen for years.

My two visits to the North End of Boston have not lived up to the hype of great Italian food. The red sauces or "gravy" in both Italian restaurants in which I have dined have been similarly orange-colored, with a creamier texture and flavor, much like a vodka sauce, not the robust deep red slightly acidic tomato ragu I was...

The food here was just okay. It wasn't bad by any means but compared to all our other meals in Boston I would give it the lowest rating and the other members of my party concurred. This may just be because Boston has so many great restaurants because the food definitely was not bad. Our waiter was just okay unlike... More

On a cold and snowy Sunday evening we had a delicious dinner for 3. We sat upstairs and had good service. Only minor issue is that we were sat next to a large group that were kind of loud. There were other tables available that we could have sat at. We didn't ask to change as by the time we... More

On a snowy night in Boston my boyfriend and I dined at Bacco. I had been twice before and loved the food and atmosphere, so I knew I had to let him see for himself. We made a reservation for 8 and were seated promptly upstairs. Our waiter was very nice, bringing us bread and taking our drink orders. I... More

I had dinner at Bacco last week with a colleague. The ambiance was pretty cool, the staff were nice and the food was good. We sat at the bar and had a couple of starters, two main course and 3 beers. The final amount on my CC was 120 CAD. For a casual restaurant, I would have expected to pay... More

We had reservations and were seated upstairs immediately. I wouldn't have wanted to be seated downstairs, as they have a full bar and were showing a football game. The bar was packed and there were loud, annoying teenagers you could even hear cheering occasionally upstairs! The appetizers and food were excellent. The pasta was homemade. I had the squash ravioli.... More

Seafood puttanesca at the recommendation of staff was superb. Very accommodating. Worth the visit. Not expensive (not cheap either). Will return.

My friend and I found this restaurant randomly while strolling around Boston on a very cold autumn night. The restaurant was great. We split a very good bottle of wine, and ordered the two pasta specials. They were very good, cooked al dente, and very flavorful. The staff was even kind enough to charge our phones at the hostess stand.... More
