Bacchi's provides a wonderful Italian meal in a quiet and comfortable environment. The food was excellent and the service was just as excellent. We enjoyed our meal, which is large and includes soup, salad, and a main course for a moderate price. We certainly would...More

From start to finish, your meal will be a surprise to the first time visitor and a treat to look forward to for the regular. Everything is homemade and presented in a way we haven't seen elsewhere (and we eat Italian wherever we can). The...More
