We arrived earlier prior to our reservation time, we were accommodated by the lady who is so charming and have excellent customer service.Foods are delicious and very well presented. Desserts are mandatory to try. Milan, a young guy who served us is also on the top for his customer service; efficiency and effectiveness and his humorous side. The place is small yet artistic; clean and convivial. Everything was perfect and we spent a wonderful lunch. I and my friends will surely come back to Bacco. Worth a try!

Bacco is the new place in the immediate neighborhood where we've spent summers for 18 years.

Bacco offers Italian-French cuisine. The style is thoroughly modern and creative, although the menu is very short (only four main courses are offered). The web site describes the cuisine as “studied but not pretentious.”

The woman who would serve us greeted us at the door when we arrived. She was all smiles, and she interspersed Italian words in her French. Her name is Arianna. .

The web site tells us that the chef, Olivier, “presents to you a menu focused on the products of these two Latin territories that are dear to his heart.”

I ordered the escargots as the starter for the two of us to share. These were not your classic French escargots. They were “tortellini aux escargots de Bourgogne et beurre à l’ail, purée de fève, radis et céleri branche croquants, émulsion de céleri rave. » Translation : tortellini stuffed with Burgundy escargots and garlic buttter, purée of fava beans, radishes and celery slices, with an emulsion of celery root.

It was a small dish, but rich with flavor.

Not familiar with fava beans? The Brits call them broad beans. They’re grown in North Africa, and look a little bit like lima beans, except they’re greener, smoother, and plumper. They’re also packed with protein.

For his main course, my companion had the Black Angus steak: Cœur d’onglet de bœuf Black Angus, crème de morilles, gnocchi de Roseval à la moutarde à l’ancienne et légumes printaniers. The steak came with a morel mushroom sauce, gnocchi made with Roseval potatoes, with an old-fashioned mustard sauce and spring vegetables.

My main course was complex and fascinating: Thon rouge des mers du sud pané aux graines de sésame torréfiées au wasabi, réduction de miel et de vinaigre de framboise, mille-feuille de caponatina et tuiles de parmesan. Translation : slightly seared red tuna medallions encrusted by wasabi-flavored sesame seeds, layered with crisps made of parmesan and a caponata that was much like ratatouille, accompanied by drizzles of a reduction sauce made from honey and raspberry vinegar.

Of the four desserts offered, we selected the Delisiozo to share: Biscuit Joconde, ganache au chocolat, crème praliné et nappage au chocolat Valrhona Caraïbes 66%. Crème glacée maison au café et au Baileys. This was a chocolate layered « cake » made from Joconde biscuits, chocolate ganache, praline cream, and a bit of dark Valrhona chocolate, accompanied by a homemade ice cream flavored with coffee and Bailey’s irish cream liqueur.

The entire dinner was flawless, colorful, beautiful, and delicious. The prices were high, but we did have a 30 percent Lafourchette.com discount. And frankly, for an experience like this, the dinner was worth the price asked.

And did I mention that the dining room is air conditioned? It was not so cold that one needs a sweater, but the room was quite comfortable.

This was a lovely, memorable dinner, and we'll be back.
