Bacco Trattoria was a great place. Ambiance and atmosphere are lacking, for sure - if you're looking for the complete fine dining experience. But the food was fantastic and the service was friendly and relaxed. Innovative meals were on the menu.
I went with some work colleagues who had already been to it earlier in the week and wanted to go back - they enjoyed it that much. And no wonder. It's a small place and it was a rainy Thursday evening. We thought we'd have the place to ourselves but we took the last available table space in the place. Even though there were 2 tables set for 4 each (there were 4 of us), they suggested that they should put the (last) 2 tables together for us. Our party had some large men and the servers realized that the extra space would be welcome for us.
It's not inexpensive but for the quality and the imagination that went into the menu items, it wasn't out of line. My husband had one of his favorite beers which is hard to find even in much larger establishments and I enjoyed a great glass of wine with dinner.
We're very glad we visited Bacco Trattoria and we would never have thought to go there except for the reviews on TripAdvisor. Thanks to all the earlier reviewers. Great find.
