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

This place is delicious !!! the service was great and its on a perfect location : a corner with balconies so you can have a great view of the North End. Stop by and eat...the staff was super nice. I will come back next time I visited Boston,

We were wandering the North End without a restaurant reservation on a busy summer Friday night - which also happened to be our 28th anniversary. The first restaurant we visited had a 2.5 hour wait time for seating. We wandered further into the North End and asked the host at Bacco (Paul) about wait time for a table. He (accurately)... More

Tried this place out but regretted it after I got my meal. I got the gnocchi pasta with bolognes and it was not good at all. Super plain and the plate literally just tasted like a bowl of just plain potatoes. So many other good places to eat in the north end...and probably for the same price. Don't come here.

Quickly seated after a short-notice Open Table booking for family of five. Seated downstairs by open windows (violin and accordion buskers played outside). Seafood linguini special was well-portioned. Spaghetti for son could have fed the whole family! Bread and oil/herbs was magnificent and warm. Cannoli for dessert included 3 mini-cannolis, which quickly disappeared. Yum!

My friend and I had an ideal spot eating in the bar on a summer night to enjoy the breeze and the people-watching outside the open windows. Very relaxed and welcoming place despite occasional shot-takers at the bar. The food was decent. I had a green salad and the primavera risotto, which were both satisfying if not innovative or super-flavorful.

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
