This restaurant in Boston's fabulous North End was recommended to me, and boy am I glad I took the advice! We were just wandering around Hanover St. unsure of where to eat, so many selections!, and I remembered this suggestion. I am so glad we ended up here, they got us right in at a table for two upstairs. Spinach... More

Stopped in for dinner while visiting the north end. The service was wonderful and the view with a table with a window was great. The food was average. Not your typical red sauce on the pasta, more of a cream sauce.

This quaint Italian restaurant on Salem St in Boston is tucked in the Italian section of the city. It is a wonderful find. We hosted a business dinner with 28 people and the evening was flawless. They worked with us ahead of time to select a wonderful menu, and their service that evening was phenomenal. Highly recommend this place for... More

I dined at this place on my own while travelling on business and it was a gem. A beautiful old fashioned martini, good porcini ravioli and just perfect asparagus. The staff were attentive and the atmosphere cosy but lively. Really good value for the price and a charming spot.

This is a great place to get food - away from the busy and crowded Hanover Street. We like it so much that we've given family gift certificates here. We often skip dessert and get cupcakes down the street at LuLu's.

We wanted a last minute late dinner and Bacco hit the spot. It was great food and wine. Our service was great! The dinner was relaxing and the music was not loud, great for conversion. I would come again.

Bacco is located in the North End of Boston. It is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in the city with a plethora of Italian restaurants to chose from. We were in Boston on Easter weekendwhich also happened to be the weekend of the Boston Marathon. Arriving without a reservation and crowds everywhere we were pleasantly surprised that they could the... More

We went on a busy Saturday without reservation and the staff quickly found a table for me and my wife, during the wait (around 10 minutes) you can stay at the bar and enjoy a beer or a glass of wine. The good: chicken ravioli was delicious and service was excellent. The front ladies are very elegant and treats you... More

The lasagna was good but it was only luke warm. Our wine arrived when we were almost finished with lunch. The wait staff wanted to clear our plates when we did not even have our forks down, a first in any restaurant. The staff just did not seem to be working in synch. When we asked for a cup of... More
