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

Giovanni greeted us at the door and the decor was lovely. My husband had the lamb chops which were very tender and delicious, and while my pasta dish was good, it would have been great if it had been fresh pasta. A small salad of mostly lettuce with a few croutons came with the meal. The tiramisu for dessert tasted... More

We chose this restaurant for an after graduation dinner based solely on its menu. It is a small intimate place-an actual house. The food was fantastic. We had people in our party from many ethnic backgrounds and all were pleased. In particular, the blackened shrimp in pesto sauce was out of this world. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. Authentic... More

We were there on a tuesday just at opening, Giovianni the owner greeted us and also waited on our table. Every item from the appetizer to the desert was marvelous. This was our first time there and there will be many more. Giovianni could not be more gracious and interested in our thoughts on the meal. He recommended the stuffed... More

We had a wonderful meal at Bacco's this evening. The broccoli soup was very flavorful without being over-salted and thickened as many other places do. I had a veal special that was delicious in a light tomato sauce and a selection of excellent vegetables. My wife had teh pollo Milanese and raved about the tenderness and flavor of the chicken....
