Very nice New Year's Eve dinner with friends

Bacco did a very god job on New Year's Eve, being right on time for an 8:00 reservation. We were seated up stairs along Salem Street at a corner table. We started with the antipasto "for two" plate which we shared among the four of us. There was a lot of good food on the plate and it would... read more

We were walking around the North End one evening and decided to stop here for dinner. We had no reservation, but it was relatively early (around 6:00) and on a weekday. We were seated immediately in the upstairs dining room, with its exposed brick walls, white lights around the windows, and white linen tablecloths. Our server was prompt and friendly,... More

We decided to treat ourselves to a nice dinner before we went to the ballet to see The Nutcracker. When i first moved here, this place stuck out to me. It's 2 levels-groud level is the bar and has some tables. The second level is more a dining room type seating. We made reservations and they seated us right next... More

Absolutely 100% delicious. My favorite spot in the North End, which is saying a lot given that the North End is the hub of all things magical and Italian.

Three of us for dinner on a busy weekend night. There was a mix-up with our order (the appetizers got lost in the shuffle and they brought out our entrees first). The management and staff were very quick to make things right and even more than the great food I will remember how hard they tried to take care of... More

Bacco reinvigorated my interest in eating in the North End of Boston. The menu was tantalizing. I had the tasty mini-risotto to start, shared an amazing salad and followed up with seafood risotto (enough for several meals) and drop dead fabulous tiramisu. You could just eat the appetizers, such a wide variety. The owner popped by regularly to check on... More

Had dinner there during a 4 day stay in Boston. Found the restaurant while wondering around the North End. Had dinner on the first floor (there are two) where the bar is located. The first floor is moderately large (for restaurants in that area) and nicely decorated. When the bar and tables are full, the place is VERY noisy....hard to... More

Happy to come back and have another satisfying meal. Started with antipasto then chicken piccata and risotto of the day which had shrimp, scallops and lobster in a garlic tomato sauce. Total bill came to $72.60 (antipasto $15, piccata $20 and risotto $30).

First time to Boston and wondering around the Salem and Hanover St areas and saw the "Tripadvisor" seal and stopped to look at the menu! The service perfect! Great food! Lovely setting!

Staying in North End

Neighborhood Profile
North End
Wandering around Boston’s North End can feel like being transported to Europe. Stroll down Hanover and Salem streets for the finest Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes, and a few boutique shops. Take part in the big debate as to whether Modern Pastry or Mike’s serves a better cannoli. Before your food coma sets in, make sure to stop by historic Paul Revere’s home, and follow the Freedom Trail to Old North Church and Copp’s Hill Burying Ground. Take a rest in a cafe on Hanover street and observe the quirky, European character of the North End.
