“Neighborhood gem”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

We stayed at a nearby hotel and were too tired to drive so we looked for a local restaurant within walking distance.Upon arrival, we were a little apprehensive as it was in an older house. Warmly greeted by owner and his wife (who waited the tables). Excellent neighborhood Italian restaurant. Good wine choices at affordable prices. Don't second guess yourselves, try Bacco's. You won't be disappointed.

“DELICIOUS!!”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Bacco's is a great restaurant to go for a special celebration or if you just want great Italian food!! The veal dishes are so good, I don't think you can go wrong on what ever you pick!! The owner, Giovanni, makes sure you are enjoying your meal. We also got a chance to meet the chef(a great one too)!! The waitress was great and we enjoyed talking with all of them! Save room for dessert ! We will be going back for sure :-)

“One of my absolute go-to restaurants in Rochester”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

We live in Rochester, so it's not the same as visiting 'new' places, but this is a restaurant that we return again, and again to. The food is wonderful, Italian, yes, but more of a northern flair, and while there IS pasta, my favorites are actually the veal dishes or the seafood.

We love it becuase it is equally appropriate for a 'nice dinner celebration' and a 'I'm really not sure I want to cook' night out. Have an appetizer and a salad, or the whole kit and kaboodle. Desserts?? Yep. MANY things I like.

“Fresh, Delicious and charming”
Reviewed January 27, 2014

After searching high and low for just the right venue for a friend's 10th anniversary party, we discovered Baccos Ristorante on Park Ave. Giovanni was so so so accommodating and hospitable ! He created a special menu just for our event and we felt like we were invited to someones house to have superb wine and scrumptious food. He provided more than enough fresh, delicious food for 40 guests and the service was fantastic! Julie and Karen worked side by side with Giovanni to make sure everyone was taken care of and happy. I really cant say enough, just how perfect the evening was!
Cant wait to go back for dinner!!

“A special Italian restaurant in Rochester!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

The setting, food and service is outstanding.
Bacco's is located in a house with a friendly, cozy atmosphere.
Upon entering you are warmly greeted by the owner which adds to the special ambiance.
The menu is creative and made with fresh ingredients. Each dish is attractively presented.
Every course has a selection of items. it's difficult to make a choice. I guess one must return
to try a different one each time.
The wine selection is very good.
Dine here you won't be disappointed!
