From the moment my friend and I walked into Bacco's and were greeted with a warm smile and handshake from owner Giovanni we knew we were in for a treat. We were seated at a lovely table by the window looking out in a snowy Park Avenue. The atmosphere is cozy and inviting, perfect for a date night (which I... More

Great care and attention goes into each dish. The ambiance is very homestyle; Giovanni runs the restaurant as if you were visiting his home. I called for a reservation at the last minute on a Saturday afternoon and he accommodated my wife and I. A wonderful night with excellent service.

A wonderful dining experience especially if you love Southern Italian cuisine. The room was warm and very pleasant. The waitress was very good, the owner of the restaurant was great and showed a real interest in us having a good dining experience. Highly recommend!

We called for reservations for a Saturday at 7 pm. The host said he couldn't accommodate that time and the best he could do was 6. We agreed to 6 although earlier than we wanted. We got there at 6 and there was no other patrons there. We were seated before the evening waitresses arrived. Our waitress came through the... More

The service was slow - 15 minutes for a glass of wine and the glasses were dirty. Bread was stale and we had to ask for a fresh basket. The food has really gone down from previous meals. Too bad, one of the worse meals we had in 10 years in Rochester

We went to this restaurant and had a great meal back in November of last year. It was rated in the top 10 in Rochester on Trip Advisor. This month we were in the area and decided to it again even though the rating had slipped to # 39, it was a mistake! First of all when I called for... More

The owner personally greeted my friend and I. He helped us select wine and appetizers. The food is delicious and the hospitality was excellent. The menu has a wide selection. My dinner was amazing! It is a small restaurant and you feel the charm and hospitality as soon as you walk in. I will definitely be going back! :)

After our first exceptional visit, a return trip was requested for daughter's birthday. Service was attentive on both visits.This visit cast a shadow, so the star rating is an average of the two visits. Of the two appetizers and three entrees, two were extremely salty, cream sauce on one appetizer and vodka sauce on one of the entrees; water was... More

I had a business trip in Rochester for a couple of days and was looking for a nice Italian place for dinner. Called the restaurant for reservations and got right in. The place is very quaint and homey. Very very low background music. Wonderful for conversation. Nice clean tables close but not crowded. Food was off the chart good. Fresh... More
