Dropped in for dinner because it was close to our rental. Food was pretty good but portion size was way too big. Service was mediocre.

We like to patronize local businesses. We read some reviews and wanted to give this long-term restaurant a try. We were pretty disappointed from the get go... super dark inside, pretty dirty:( But sometimes these are the BEST places to discover. Not in this case....More

This restaurant hasn't changed one bit. Still provides good food and lots of it. Family style serving in a dark, dimly lit dining room. Decent wine list with reasonable prices. Recommended:)

Before we left the house to go to Bacchi's Inn, my 15 year old daughter warned us that Bacchi's had some pretty awful reviews on Yelp. We went anyways and when we were given plain sliced white bread, we knew that we had made a...More
