“A Wonderful Experience many times over”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

Every weekend for a month my wife and I went to Bacco's and enjoyed each visit. We also often took friends with us. The food was quite good, but the friendly staff was the best. We were far from home in a small Sicilian town yet each time we walked in we felt at home. We tried many things on the menu and loved each one.
The location on the piazza is ideal, for this very well run, clean and enjoyable Restaurant/pub.
We would especially like to mention the attention and friendship we received from Chiara. What a wonderful smile!
If you are near Balestrate and don't visit Bacco's, you are missing something very nice.

“Great Meal on the Main Sqaure”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

My family of four recently went to Bacco's Pub and we really enjoyed our dining experience. The food was very good, and the ambience friendly and lively. We dined on the terrace, so we were able to enjoy everything that was going on in the main square. If we ever return to Balestrate, we will be certain to stay again at Casa Ruffino and dine at Bacco's.

“What a find!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

We visited Balestrate in February, which is a quiet time for Sicily. We sat having a quiet drink in Bacco's Pub, when a man came in, spoke to the locals at the bar and then when he spotted us he came straight over and introduced himself. This was Pepe. His sister was working behind the bar. We asked where we could try some typical Sicilian food and he said that as it was out of season he didn't have every ingredient in, but if we wanted to come back the next day, he would prepare us a proper Sicilian meal. At the side of the pub there is a little seating area and we returned the next evening. Pepe prepared us the most amazing meal, including 12 different foods! A selection of antipasto dishes, three different pastas, and a fish dish and a meat dish. We couldn't manage desert (no surprise!) As we were the only people eating in the pub/restaurant that night, he outdid himself. Everything was delicious. Well done, Pepe. Speriamo di vederli ancora in Balestrate molto presto! (We hope to see you again in Balestrate very soon!) David and Cindy

“Very good Friendly Bar/Restaurant in Balestrate”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

We have been to Bacco's Pub a few times since being on our extended 6 month trip in Sicily. The owner & staff are very friendly and the drinks and food are very good. The location is great, just on the main square. We would very much recommend a few visits to Bacco's.
